About the Podcast

First off, thanks for being curious about the show! 

I want to state up front, this is not a show by a licensed professional or a medical doctor, so take my advice at your own risk (or reward).

The show was launched in January 2014, when Dawn Serra and Dylan Payne heard some horrible advice about strap-on sex on a porn podcast. Deciding the world needed our voices, we grabbed a recorder and started talking.

No plan, no experience in podcasting. Just a need to set the record straight in our own silly, loving ways.

After two years, Dylan had to leave the show for professional reasons, and since then, Dawn Serra has taken over, interviewing world-renowned experts and fielding your amazing questions from a place of compassion, curiosity, and a fierce commitment to inclusion and justice.

Have questions about safe sex? Send them over.

Think your fantasy is weird and fucked up? Let's talk about it.

Shopping for a new dildo or curious about strap-on play? That's a fun one to discuss.

Dying to open your marriage or about to cheat on your partner? Yep... there's advice for that, too.

Sex Gets Real is an honest, down-to-earth look at sex, BDSM, kink, relationships, bodies, queer culture, and everything in between.

The goal of the show is to offer a sex-positive, kink-informed, trauma-informed, feminist, queer look at sex that's free of shame, coercion, and the harmful myths perpetuated by society.

And your participation is critical.

So share your opinions, your questions, your concerns, and anything else you want to say - but please, keep it respectful - unsolicited dick pics or overly sexual messages about us get you tossed out for good.

Use the Send a Note page, and don't forget to subscribe to the podcast and newsletter. There is an attack on sexuality right now, and with the FOSTA/SESTA laws, finding the show and inclusive sex education is going to become more and more challenging.
