American Sex


 

We are a nation obsessed with sex. We want to know how to have it, when to have it, and with whom. We want to know how freaky is acceptable and what’s too taboo? We wonder if we’re normal. Well, that all depends on who you ask. On American Sex Sunny Megatron & Ken Melvoin-Berg dive deep into guests sexual journeys. Some stories are personal and intimate. Others center around a bigger picture component like legislation, discrimination, or overcoming cultural stigma. Every story, however, has one thing in common-- the very blurred line between what’s personal and what affects us all.

To some, the term “social justice” is a dirty word. But to others, it means “basic human decency” and should be everyone’s default setting. When it comes to dating, relationships, sex, or navigating sexual sub-communities it’s important. It can make or break your dating and sex life. But how and why do things like race, gender, ability, size, etc, affect getting laid? Sex is just sex, right? Not necessarily. This week’s guest, Dirty Lola, explains why your dick (or whatever genitals you happen to have) should care about social justice.

Dirty Lola Sex EducatorGuest bio Dirty Lola is a storyteller, edutainer, sex educator, sex toy peddler, and the creator and host of the live sex Q&A and variety show and podcast Sex Ed A Go-Go. During the last six years, she has shared her distinctive brand of kickass body and sex-positivity and her personal journey into the kink and polyamorous lifestyles with the masses on and off stage. Lola has taken Sex Ed A Go-Go across the country from New York City to Los Angeles and beyond. She has presented at various conferences and expos such as Catalyst Con, Woodhull, The Sex Expo, and AVN, and during sex week at Baruch College, Hofstra University and the University of New Mexico. When she’s not hosting Sex Ed A Go-Go or teaching folks about pleasure, kink polyamory and sex positivity you can find her behind the counter at Shag, a sex shop in Brooklyn.
