We have had a Nooner and multiple Quickies every Wednesday for the whole month of August. It’s been really fun and a little tiring, interspersed with many moments of hilarity and a few of downright awkwardness. And there’s been lots of positive feedback:
I love the honest, gritty humor that these ladies bring to the bedroom discussion. This podcast feels like a girl’s night out except without the hangover and bar tab (although, I would be happy to imbibe with any of these ladies). –Sarah Askins
This podcast takes on all of your bedroom questions and does it with style!! These ladies are honest and hilarious which is a knock out combination in my book. Not for the faint of heart, but you will learn things you didn’t know & learn that you’re not alone with your questions. Definitely one for headphones, but so worth your time! –LizLD
It’s refreshing to hear three friends, as comfortable with the topic as they are with one another, carry on a mature (with giggles and full belly laugh moments), insightful, and judgment-free discussion on sex. It’s not so much titillating as it is educational – as well as beautiful, fun, and invigorating. …which is kinda like what they’re talking about CAN be… –SonnyLemmons
In just a month, the Nooner Gals have covered lots of territory. Episode 1: “One Can Play at This Game” touched on masturbation, Episode 2: “Stripped Down” bared the truth about male stripping, Episode 3: “50 Shades of Bondage and Bad Writing” was lenient on the BDSM but punished the literary disaster, Episode 4: “Good Vibrations” had fun with toys, and today’s episode, “I’ll Have What She’s Having,” is quite forthcoming about orgasms.
The Wednesday Nooner podcast– with its nitty-gritty topics and hilarious short segments we call Quickies– has provided a month of adventure and also one of discovery. For example, I never realized my friend Sharideth had such a naturally sexy recording voice (you’ll pick her deeper tone out right away) and, at the same time, such a penchant for drinking bourbon straight out of a plastic flask. I never knew my friend Alise was an amateur wiz at sound engineering or an amateur goody-goody (she claims to be “the least slutty person ever” in one episode and then explains her purple sex furniture in another). And til this month, I’d never noticed how squeamish I get about using proper terminology for private parts (which should probably automatically disqualify me from being a sex podcaster) or how much I enjoy role-playing a breathy and uncomfortably inappropriate teacher.
Sometimes I feel crazy for putting all this out there every week, especially when I have so much else going on– like a book to complete, two books to contribute to, and a few books to write, not to mention a sweet little blog that probably feels a li’l left out. But we’re having lots of fun, we seem to be doing more good than harm, and, I have to say– this will be some damn good research for one of those books I’ll be writing soon.
How’s that for a tease?
