“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 and revelations. Some stories are personal and intimate. Others have a bigger picture component tying into things like legislation, discrimination, or overcoming cultural stigma. Every story has one thing in common-- the very blurred line between what’s personal and what affects us all.” About the Hosts: Sunny Megatron and Ken Melvoin-Berg are sexuality educators and edutainers. They specialize in kink, alt-sexuality, and facilitating authentic communication between partners. The pair created, produced, and Sunny hosted the groundbreaking sex positive TV show Sex With Sunny Megatron on Showtime.

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. Guest 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.

  About our guest: Dick Wound is a 36-year-old BDSM enthusiast. He’s a sadomasochist specializing in knife play as a top, CBT (cock & ball torture) as a bottom, and is an armpit fetishist. At 30 Dick suffered a heart attack and now depends on an internal defibrillator to stay alive. This experience prompted him to fantasize and role play about his own death to conquer his fears and depression. Dick recently became entrenched in the world of robosexual/ASFR fetish. He’s also the creator, engineer, and co-host of Off the Cuffs: a Kink & BDSM Podcast Recap: Ken & Sunny explore Dick Wound’s earliest childhood inspirations and theorize why characters like Batman, James Bond, and comic book superheroes had such an influence on his sexuality. They discuss how Dick’s death fetish kicked into high gear after his near death experience and how he used it therapeutically to conquer his fear of dying. They also dive into Dick's newest fetish, gynoids, and explore why female robots would be ideal dominant sex partners. Episode 4 topics: Batman & Catwoman's uber hot ‘I love you, now die’ relationship, black widow fetish, wives with knives, executrix, Marvel superheroes, no one likes IronFist, custom porn clips, extreme fantasy role play, depression, therapeutic kink, heart failure, dollification, iDollator, gynoids, sex dolls, disability and BDSM, knife play, serial killers, mindfucks, SSC vs RACK Episode 4 links & info: Off the Cuffs Podcast Twitter Off the Cuffs Podcast Facebook Off the Cuffs Podcast Fetlife Dick Wound Facebook Dick Wound Fetlife "Off the Cuffs: a Kink and BDSM podcast" can be found on iTunes, Podcast Addict, and most other podcast streaming apps.

Oh, you lucky duckies! We launched this podcast with almost no fanfare, didn’t we? One day the American Sex podcast didn’t exist and the next day it’s like someone quietly slipped it under your pillow. Like a surprise gift  . . . from a secret admirer . . . or the NSFW tooth fairy! Don’t worry though, we won’t steal your teeth.   Ken and I have been working on American Sex for a while. A few episodes are already recorded and in various states of editing and we’re pounding more out behind the scenes as quickly as we can (oh yeah we are, *wink*).    But we’re the types that can’t hold on to presents. You know when it’s the day before someone’s birthday and you got them the greatest present ever? And you’re so excited to give it to them that you’re going to explode? So then you just start bugging them, “hey, you want your present? You want it early? I won’t mind! You know you do! You want it early don’t you?! Can I give it to you? PLUEEESSSEE!!?!?” That’s us. It's your birthday tomorrow. AND WE WANT TO GIVE YOU YOUR PRESENT NOW! So here’s Episode 1 of American Sex. Think of like how they release a pilot to a new show and then they make you wait a bit for the rest of the episodes. But with us it’s not even that bad-- here’s the deal: We’ll be back in two weeks with regular weekly episodes from that point on.   So I suppose this is our soft launch and you’re one of the select few that found it before everyone else!  Enjoy!  We’ll be back in two weeks with more episodes . . .   American Sex, Episode 1: INTRO TO KEN & SUNNY Recap: This is our introductory episode. This hour is all about getting to know us, getting to know all about us-- sexuality educators, Sunny Megatron & Ken Melvoin-Berg. We discuss the concept of American Sex, what it means to us, and what we want you to get out of our show. We dive into our personal and professional backgrounds, how we were socialized to perceive sex, our open kinky marriage, phubbing, love languages, and a whole lot more.    Episode 1 Topics: Phubbing, ghosting, the bonding power of cellphones (phoneteraction?), bluetooth sex toys, Dr. Gary Chapman 5 love languages, bickering as a 6th love language, emotional literacy, Sunny’s fake husband Ted Wivernbork, Dungeons & Dragons, fear in BDSM, watermelon is the new pussy, how Disney and John Hughes 80s movies robbed a generation of their sexual agency, midlife revelations, thriving after an abusive relationship, woo-woo vs. science, accidental incontinence
