  • 321. Sex Robots And The Impact on Human Sex Work

    58:15
    "The sex machines rose from the ashes of whorephobia. Their war to exterminate sex work had raged for decades, but the final battle would not be fought in the future. It would be fought here, in our present." That's a direct quote from the original Terminator script, until James Cameron decided to make it about Robotic bodybuilders instead of Robotic Only Fans models. True story. This week Bryde and Jeremie are joined by Delphine, a researcher in the intersection of sexuality and technology. She discusses her work on sex robots and sex work, challenging the problematic framing of sex robots as exploited and abused women, highlighting the inflammatory language used in media and the association with sex work. Delphine takes a sex-positive and tech-neutral approach, emphasizing that technologies are not inherently good or bad. She explores the potential of sex robots to replace or supplement human sex work, noting the current discourse on both sides of the argument.

Bryde and Jeremie jump feet first into one of the frameworks Sureya uses to help her coaching clients - the Chakra System. Sureya breaks down the use of the Chakra system as a diagnostic tool for understanding and addressing sexual dysfunction, explains how sexual energy moves differently through the system for men and women, and teaches the hosts about the concept of redirecting sexual energy for a more body-full, longer lasting orgasm without ejaculation, or sending the energy in and up, rather than out.

  • 315. You Can Take An Insurance Policy Out On Your Balls?!

    29:39
    This week Jer and Bryde are coming at you with a little host hang. Bryde is excited about a recent story that made headlines regarding a multi-million dollar insurance policy taken out on a pair of testicles. Publicity stunt aside, insuring body parts is not as uncommon as one might think. Speaking of publicity stunts, the Japanese government creating a dating app is not one. It's their final Hail Mary approach to address wildly declining birth rates. Might be faster if Japan just imported Nick Cannon for a couple of years.Follow Turn Me On Instagram
