Episode 100: Fascinating Facts About Sex


It is hard to believe, but we have reached episode 100 of this podcast! So how do you celebrate 100 episodes of a sex show? I’ve put together a compilation featuring some of the most fascinating and mind-blowing facts about sex we’ve covered so far. Specifically, we’re going to revisit my interviews with Hallie Lieberman (Episode 21), Dr. Ina Park (Episode 39), Dr. Lisa Dawn Hamilton (Episode 53) and Dr. Nicole Prause (Episode 60).

Some of the things we cover in this episode include:

  • Why butt plugs used to be marketed as a cure for asthma (no joke!).
  • Whether sexually transmitted infections can hijack our brains and change our sexual behavior in order to make them more infectious.
  • How a study of a cow’s clitoris became the basis for what we think we know about the human clitoris.
  • Why some people get sick every time they orgasm.
