NotPorn is the Sex-in-Film podcast where long-time friends, Lyra & Laura, discuss sexuality in mainstream film and television (i.e. not porn.) The discussions are frank, casual and explicit. When discussing specific movies and shows, major plot points may end up being revealed. The entire podcast should be considered SPOILER territory. Each episode description lists the titles involved, in order to give fair warning.
