    The Sluttiness Episode with Sluts & Scholars' Nicoletta and Simone

    The Sluttiness Episode with Sluts & Scholars' Nicoletta and Simone

    As you might guess, this week's episode is heavy on the adult content - consider yourself warned! 
    What's your definition of a slut? After this episode with Nicoletta and Simone, the co-hosts of Sluts & Scholars podcast (@slutsandscholars), you might have a different one. Romantical co-hosts Francesca Hogi (@dearfranny) and Saskia Nelson (@saskia_nelson) talk all things sluttiness and pleasure with these extra special guests!
    This week's discussion about the definition of sex, anal sex, sexual communication with your partner, the anatomy of the clitoris, pegging, omnisexualism, Jessica Drake's Wicked Guide to A**l Sex, and MORE is both hilarious and informative. 
    Plus:
    Saskia shares her excitement over London's BFI Flare LGBT Film Festival and Francesca reflects on Michelle and Barack Obama's relationship after reading Michelle Obama's memoir, Becoming. 
    About our guests:
    Nicoletta and Simone strive to f*ck (sometimes literally) the paradigm that you can't be openly sexual AND a fully professional competent human. Nicoletta Heidegger is a licensed MFT and sexologist and Simone is an actor-turned-law-student who really likes to talk about sex. Together, they chat with folks from across sexuality, kink and professional spectrums about desire, pleasure, shame, stigma and (of course) bodily functions.
