    Juno Mac: Interrobang?!

    Juno Mac: Interrobang?!

    “Kink is an arena where I find tidiness.” //
    In Part 2 of my talk with Juno Mac, co-author of Revolting Prostitutes, we discuss: great books about sex work, rational thoughts in an irrational world, whether there's such a thing as the sex worker gaze, what the Hustlers of prostitution will look like, why it’s imperative that sex work activism centers mutual aid and the experience of migrants, and how Juno is trying not to be the movement’s mother so she can be a @FeralMommy in her personal life. //
    “Our fangs are so f*****g sharp." //
    Juno Mac is a professional leg spreader and opinion haver; a sex worker, activist, author, and photographer based in London, UK. She is an organizer with Sex Workers’ Advocacy and Resistance Movement, a collective of sex workers based in different cities around the UK. She is one of the co-authors of the book Revolution Prostitutes: The Fight For Sex Workers’ Rights released in 2018, and is currently working on a part documentary/part memoir photographic project about the intimate spaces in sex working lives. Her 2016 TED Talk is called: The laws that sex workers really want.

    Juno Mac: Revolting Prostitutes Pt 1

    Juno Mac: Revolting Prostitutes Pt 1

    “Is it ok for 'Juno Mac' to be an anxious hooker and an advocate for sex worker rights? Am I allowed to be a messy, complicated person?” //
    The co-author of the indispensable book Revolting Prostitutes join me over the phone from her quarantine in England to discuss: the unfair pressure of compartmentalizing our own sex lives and whoreientations, why doing sex work digitally feels like Buffy losing her super-strength and not being able to open a jar of pickles, dinner party Decrim talking points, and “calling in” the analogy "sex is to rape as sex work is to trafficking." //

    SfSx: Jen Hickman Interrobang?!

    SfSx: Jen Hickman Interrobang?!

    “The push and pull between clarity and imagination is something I think about a lot in visual storytelling.” //
    I called up SfSx series artist Jen Hickman to celebrate the release of our SfSx: Volume 1: Protection trade paperback on July 22nd!
    Jen and I discuss our collaborative process, and Jen gives some insight into how they think about formatting sequential art, color as music, and an art school game that’s like exquisite corpse but with dicks. We also touch on Jen’s talent for “character acting” and one of my favorite examples of this from SfSx, how they made an air duct scene sex charged and hilarious, the role of time in comics especially smutty comics, and what kind of sex robot we'd want to f**k. // Jen Hickman is a visual storyteller and a graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design's Sequential Art program. Past work includes TEST, Moth & Whisper, Jem and the Holograms, the Femme Magnifique anthology, and more. They get really excited about dystopian fiction, good coffee, and drawing hands.

Ricky-Rococo ,

So many tips!

I have really been enjoying this podcast, ESPECIALLY during my COVID Quarantine.
I found this podcast a few years ago and really didn’t seem to like it, but have returned and it’s finally the right time in my life.

From listening to this pod cast I have had many personal breakthroughs around internalized shame, and many questions answered. I am especially grateful for the episodes on anal play that have so many good tips that I will definitely be trying! I also have found many of the resources she shares helpful and e, like links to other media in film and writing. This cast has also really helped me find language for sex/erotic life that I didn’t know I needed. So if you can relate to anything I’ve written I encourage you to give it a shot! (Side note : the episode on squirting with Ignacio Rivera literally taught me how to squirt and made me feel so much better about it as a trans masculine person! )
Also wonderful to hear from so many sex workers and queer people in the industry, writers, illustrators, providers and people of all trades. And so much humor.

TRUE, the audio has much to be desired and sometimes the flow of the interviews seems stilted which can be very frustrating as a listener. I usually take a break from listening or choose a different episode when it starts to bother me, because there is so much good stuff in this cast!

Thank you Tina!!!!!

Transformed my POV on Sexuality and Kink

This podcast has been a key aspect of my sexual awakening. I am better informed, more creative, and more accepting because of it. I highly recommend even if you are not kinky because sex intersects with all aspects of life - race, gender, class, history, psychology, and more. Plus, Tina Horn is so charming.

I gave it a shot...

I listened to four episodes of this podcast, each time hoping it would get better. It didn’t.

First of all: sound quality. In this day and age when you get very solid microphones for under $100 and there is excellent free editing software available, it is annoying to have to listen to what sounds like an iPhone was put on record and placed on a desk on the other side of the room. Mix in sirens and other background noise and it’s difficult to focus on what’s being talked about.

My main issue is that the show is so improvised and without any notable structure that there are episodes that take 15-20 minutes to even get to the topic they’re supposed to be about if they even do at all. I listened to one episode that just sounded like two girlfriends talking about everything BUT the topic of the episode.

The claim is that each episode brings in an “expert”. That does little good if that so-called expert is not asked any topical questions.

I got little to nothing from this podcast and decided to unsubscribe.
