Hilarious and informative!

Nicoletta is freaking hilarious and I so appreciate the knowledge she brings to these episodes and the incredible guests who are a part of her show. It’s sometimes challenging to find sex positive podcasts that are also fun and informative and this podcast checks all of those boxes so well! Thank you for all you do for sex positive people like me!

Boost your Self-Esteem and Libido 🌊

I love this podcast, its wide variety of guests, and Nicoletta’s calm, comfortable way of talking about sensitive sexual topics. Simone’s intentions are appreciated, but sometimes it’s like, girrrrllll, no one wants a sexy nipple piercing story interrupted by your anecdote of childhood antics.

I do wish they’d get a little deeper into feminism and less 101, but the podcast is still a great resource.

Nicoletta is awesome & I love the premise of the show. Her guests & topics are super interesting.
