I started this podcast because I was tired of being stereotyped as lazy, triggered and entitled.

How can we take ownership over the ...
 
Whore Rapport isn’t just another sex podcast. On this show we seek to expose a version of sexuality that is healthy, strong, and aware.

Come with us, as we explore nuance, intention, eroticism, and fantasy without shame or apology. Let's turn on the lights, pull back the covers, and talk about what we see.
