Hot Sox: Aunt Abby Does Online Dating

When it comes to online dating, Editrix Abby Ehmann (who I affectionately coined Cunty Aunt Abby this morning) tells it like it is. In this week’s Hot Sox podcast, you’ll laugh with us (or at us) about dating do’s, don’ts and downers. Abby’s been actively doing the dating deed on OK Cupid for over a year now, and she’s been blogging her trials and tribulations of dates gone, or almost gone on, on her wonderful bloggedy blog. Today she joins me to discuss the hilarity of online dating. Plus pheromone parties, sploshing and the importance of good teeth.

Hot Sox: Pornography, HIV and the Darren James Crusade

In this week’s Hot Sox Podcast, I’m joined by former pornographic actor Darren James. In 2004, James was diagnosed with HIV while working as talent in the adult industry. By the time he received his results (pseudo-mandatory STI testing in the adult industry is/was only every 30 days and HIV can live in your body up to 6 months before saying hey) he infected three other women. James spoke with me about paying taxes, contracting HIV, penis size, the key to shooting large loads, the military, racism and dating in the industry, STD’s, civilians, big butts and why condoms should be used in porn.

Hot Sox: Rachel Kramer Bussel and Me

This week’s Hot Sox Podcast is about erotica, bisexuality, hotel sex, wedding registries, babies, spanking, hoarding, Steve Jobs, Monica Lewinsky, cupcakes and anything else I could cram into one hour of hot sox. After spending a few days with Rachel Kramer Bussel in my new home in San Francisco, I can attest to the fact that it’s easy fall in love with Rachel and her writing. For starters, she’s super smart and sort of shy. She’s also a giver - the huge heart kind - and sweet-o-licious, like the cupcakes that she so generously dishes out to friends and fans alike.

On top of that, she’s one heck of a prolific erotic writer. At the end of this year, she’ll have edited 50 erotica anthologies, and she’s got a head full of ideas to boot (I’m exhausted just thinking about it). While you own’t be exhausted listening to us chat about our lives - both our sex and our singlehood - you may become inspired. So buy her latest compilations - Best Sex Writing 2012 and Curvy Girls and pre-order her newest hotel sex anthology, Suite Encounters, and Going Down: Oral Sex Stories.

Listen to the podcast via itunes or on my site and visit Rachel’s blog too.
