Dr Laurie: How to Date in 2022
Our favorite sex therapist, Dr Laurie is back to answer more of our questions! Today, I asked her about dating in the modern age. With new technology, new and improved rules around consent, and ever evolving social standards, what are the new rules of dating? How do you make a perfect online dating profile, and how can you tell what a genuine profile looks like? Where can you meet people besides the internet? How does one even make the first move without being a creep anymore? Do you really need to ask for consent before kissing someone for the first time? All that and so much more. Dr Laurie is a clinical psychologist that specializes in sex therapy. She runs Pornhub’s sexual wellness center, which is an amazing site dedicated to informing the public on all matters love, sexuality, and health. She does weekly Q&As, along with articles and videos on everything from basic sexual anatomy, to the latest in sexuality research, and how to navigate and build relationships. She was kind enough to squeeze us in between seeing patients. EnjoY!

Introducing Connie Perignon: The Next Big Star
Connie Perignon is the next big pornstar, I want to be on the record for officially calling it. She's only been in the business for four months, but she's already blowing up - I asked her how the F*** is she doing it?! We talk about her marketing background, professionalism (or lack thereof? lol) in the porn industry, and the difference between sugarbabies and escorts. What makes a perfect client? What makes the WORST client? Do guys know all of the weird ways other guys are getting themselves off? Connie and I have eerily a lot in common, EXCEPT for what kind of men we like- and we get deep into that. I've been obsessed with her since the moment I saw her, and I know you will be too.

Dr Steinberg: All About Boners (and other stuff, too!)
Todays episode is my dream interview; our guest is urologist Dr Andrew Steinberg. Obviously, I hounded him with over an hours worth of boner questions. We talked about the four most common issues people walk into his office with: Premature ejaculation (when you cum too fast,) hormonal issues (like low testosterone,) erectile dysfunction (when you can’t achieve a boner, whether thats due to physical or psychological issues,) and Peroni’s disease (when your dick has a curve in it due to scar tissue build up.) I got to settle a bet between my husband and myself in regards to precum (spoiler alert: I won, sort of,) and I also got to ask all about prostates, balls, and squirting. Oh also, I finally got some clarity on whether or not blue balls are real. To learn more after this interview, you can hear Dr Steinbergs own podcast “HAVE THE BALLS TO TALK ABOUT IT.” I know thats exactly where im headed next! Enjoy!!!!

Kathleen Hema: How to Talk to Your Kids About Sex
Today’s guest is Kathleen Hema, MPH. She is a sex education expert giving parents tips to have the modern day sex talk. Along with being a university lecturer, she has an EXTREMELY helpful and resourceful YouTube channel as well as an instagram account and a Tik Tok account, helping parents talk to their kids about sex. As you all know, I am the mother of two children - my kids are still 3 and 0, but sex education has been heavy on my mind lately. We are living in a day and age where I need to prepare my kids for all of the information that is available - just a quick internet search away - and if I don’t appropriately prepare them for that information, it could be damaging for them. I don’t mean this just as a pornstar, either - if we as parents don’t talk to our kids about sex, and we just hope they’ll learn about it from somewhere else, theres a good chance their first encounter with sex will be devasting, scary, and just really confusing. So when SHOULD I start talking about sex to my kids? About consent? Masturbation? PORN? How do I raise my kids free of the shame I grew up with? How can I equip them with all of the knowledge they need to grow into sexual beings in the most safe, healthy way? I’m a sexworker. My whole life is sex. If iiii don’t know how to address these things, I can only imagine that other parents are curious too. I reached out to Kathleen to help me navigate this topic, so I dont totally fuck it up. She gave me some great tips, and explained everything in a really easy way where I actually feel pretty confident now to start the sex talk with my kids. She broke it down into a timeline so I know exactly when to talk about each topic, and she gave me scripts so that I now have the language to educate my kids in those topics. I learned so much, and I hope you do too!

Natassia Dreams: aka DOMINIQUE SILVER
It's our first VIDEO episode! Today's guest is the Natassia Dreams who is now officially a PORNHUB BRAND AMBASSADOR! Since we last spoke to her, Natassia let the two sides of her life cross: her life as a fashion supermodel, Dominique Silver, and her life as a porno superstar, Natassia Dreams. We discuss stigmas, life changes, and how as we get older... we are just giving less f*cks. As I talk about my latest plastic surgery, we ponder what it means to be "feminine" and question whether breasts are no longer part of that equation for us. Listen to the audio version on Pornhub Podcast dot com, or check out the video on YouTube!

Dirty Lola: On Sextoys, Polyamory, Kink, and Being Kind to Yourself
Dirty Lola is a sex educator, performer, and - in her own words - dildo slinger. She is the host and creator of SexEdAGogo which is a LIVE sex ed variety show based in Brooklyn that aims to end stigma, shame, and all the misinformation surrounding sex. Lola was kind enough to indulge me in all of my questions about polyamory - and there were MANY. We also talked about sex toys, sexual education, dating, love, fetishes, self love, and we even touched on mental health. Lola is the kind of person I could talk to forever - which is made obvious in this interview, which lasted two whole hours. You can see more of what she’s up to (and take a look at her schedule to see her LIVE) at DirtyLola dot co

Cameron Bess: Pansexual Furry Astronaut
Today’s guest is Cameron Bess, AKA Meeps Kitten. He is a Furry, he is pansexual, and he is an ASTRONAUT. Yes, you read that right - he is the first pansexual person and the first Furry - that we know of - to go to space! This episode is kind of hilarious because it’s almost like two separate interviews - obviously first things first, I had a million questions about his experience as a furry. What IS a furry? Is it always a sexual thing? Whats the sexiest animal? Do the furry suits always stay on during sex? I ALSO had some questions about going to space. What was the whole experience like? What does zero gravity feel like? Cameron is maybe the first astronaut I’ve ever spoken to in my life, and he was gracious enough to get into everything I brought up, and he was just so cool - I'm so thankful he shared his insights with us.

Sean Baker, Director of Red Rocket: On Suitcase Pimps and Anti-heroes
Today’s guest is Sean Baker, director of The Florida Project, Tangerine, Starlet, and most recently, Red Rocket. Red Rocket is a movie about a retired male pornstar (played by Simon Rex) who has returned to his small hometown - and it's literally the best movie I have ever seen about our industry, ever. You MUST go watch it immediately. I talked to Sean about what it was like to shoot a movie about porn, what it was like to shoot a movie during covid, and what it was like to shoot on film rather than digital. We talked about why he always makes movies about the unconventional, grittier side of life. We discussed open-ended endings, finding actors in unlikely places, and we talked about unlikable characters and what makes them likable. This was a really enlightening conversation and I learned so much about the OTHER side of Hollywood and how a mainstream movie is made. Oh also, we talked a lot about porn. Obviously. Enjoy!

Leo Vice: Asian Male Pornstar
Leo Vice was working a regular 9-5 in the corporate world, before entering the porn industry in his mid 30s - becoming one of the very few mainstream Asian male pornstars in the US. Why are there so few Asian men in porn? Why are there barely any in media in the US in general? What is “pretty privilege?” Is “paying your dues” in porn via blowbangs a thing of the past? Do all male performers take performance enhancing drugs? It was interesting for me to talk to someone who was BRAND new in the business, I feel like I haven’t done that in a while and it made me remember the excitement that comes with starting a career in porn. Also… Leo tells me the story of when we first met. Which I have zero recollection of.

Robin Tran Does Not Want to be Your Trans Hero
Robin Tran just emerged from a lifelong depression, and her career EXPLODED during the pandemic. She’s my favorite person I’ve met recently; She’s hilarious, smart as fuck, irreverent yet profound, cocky yet devastatingly introspective, and has so many of the strangest obsessions yet is oddly… one of the most relatable people I have ever come across. I feel like I discovered her comedy and within a week she was just everywhere I turned. Needless to say, I HAD to interview her. She was gracious enough to dive into any and every topic that came up. I laughed SO MUCH throughout this interview, Robin is the kind of girl I walked away from the interview feeling like… I’m desperate to be her friend. We hit so many topics: Are we five years away from a gay pro wrestling storyline? What does a manic episode look like when you’re bipolar - does it feel amazing? Is this the greatest time to be in comedy for a nerd? What is an Asian person through the “white gaze?” Is it possible to be a good comic without overcoming obstacles? What was it like to come out as transgender as a public figure? Have porn and comedy changed forever since the pandemic? Is it possible to have a career in comedy without standup? Whats the difference between sadness and depression? Are human beings capable of being logical, or are we inherently illogical? Also: similarities between stand up and stripping. Also also: major Eminem rant included.
