Put Yourself Out There Featuring Marina Franklin

E“Don’t hesitate! Take the plunge! Put yourself out there!” Well…what’s out there? You may find an open minded sexual unicorn capable of pleasuring you beyond humankind’s feeble imagination, or limp home bruised and black-eyed with little more than your dignity and a story; maybe not even that much. On this episode, Rachel Bitney Wecht shares “A Little Geological Time and Pressure,” and comedian and writer Marina Franklin shares a studio story about a time she got put out there.

Shameful, Featuring Jessica Kirson

EWhen applied appropriately, a little shame can be hot. But all too often when shame enters a sexy situation, it's not the fun kind. On this episode of Hot Mic with Dan Savage we'll hear two stories that deal with shame head on. First, writer Elna Baker attempts to get laid while ignoring the Mormon voice in her head in "New York Virgin," told live at RISK! Then we'll hear from comedian Jessica Kirson, who shares a studio story about the time a raucous hookup left her filled with shame.

Goodbye Sex Toy

EWhen love ends and your lover leaves, they also leave things behind—that t shirt that smells like them, or that mix CD they made you, or their sex toys. In this episode of Hot Mic with Dan Savage, we present an elegiac dildo variety show of sorts. We have a live story called "Up in Flames" by Henry Bear from The Mystery Box Show, and a special piece about an unusual graveyard in San Francisco. We also have the saddest country love song ever, from the musical duo Reformed Whores.

Full Disclosure

EWhen it comes to sex, nothing is harder than talking about sexually transmitted infections. Get it?! And STIs are even more difficult to make funny, look how hard we just tried!

Rob Penty shares a story from RISK! about genital warts, and members of The Groundlings conjure up ridiculous STI-ridden, improvised scenes. For contrast, Dan Savage offers up a bit of practical STI advice.
