Sex at Work is a series of conversations with people who do the jobs that are making the world a sexier, more loving place.
In as much detail as they feel comfy or is relevant, guests offer a window into their respective careers in the sex industry, and share the wisdom they've accumulated along the way.
A companion pod inspired by Sex Stories, it's another curiosity-driven everyday anecdotal research project—because the Clone Sisters have been reading the sex books, listening to the sex pods, and talking to people directly. So far, the anecdotal non-data suggests that humans who anonymously share real-life details capture a range and depth of human experience that is sometimes but not always reflected in the "normal" research that makes it into the books sex educators learn from.
It's the most fun work podcast ever.

What do you want to celebrate most about your work, right now?
Imagine a Full Service Creativity Resort. Think: a small-ish oasis in the desert that has family-friendly and grownups-only areas, where education about all things art-and-body-related is available, and resources exist to explore ones’ creativity in all ways that are legal and consensual and age-appropriate. If you were in charge of one room—or a whole floor—of this resort, and it’s the [YOUR NAME/BRAND] zone, and you have an unlimited budget, what’s the most fun, you-version of this room you can think of, right now?
