Sex Gets Real 190: Sunny Megatron & Ken Melvoin-Berg on kink & changing bodies

This week's episode is sponsored by CrashPad Series.

Did you hear last week? CrashPad Series is sponsoring the Explore More Summit: Bodies Edition. It’s free and online, so sign-up today. We’ll spend 5 days going super deep into body politics, self acceptance, fat activism, diet culture, weight stigma, and shedding body shame so we can center our pleasure.

This week, Sunny Megatron and Ken Melvoin-Berg are here! Which means it’s basically an hour of me laughing hysterically.

We talk about their new sex podcast, American Sex, and some of the guests they’ve had – like the grapefruit lady and a guy whose fetish is death and sex.

Ken talks about how his relationship to kink has changed due to some health concerns, and Sunny talks about menopause and her libido.

We also answer listener questions about pubic hair and fisting. Ken even wows with the history of the merkin.

In this episode, Sunny, Ken, and I talk about:

  • Sunny & Ken’s new podcast, American Sex. I was just recently on it, too, and we had a REALLY fantastic conversation. Check it out – episode 15.
  • Interviewing people from Joycelyn Elders of the Clinton administration to Auntie Angel of the grapefruit blowjob YouTube sensation.
  • Ken’s desire to have Sunny try the grapefruit technique on him while wearing a unicorn mask.
  • Sunny and Ken’s guest on their show who loves fantasizing about his own death and who is also into robot sex – color me intrigued.
  • Death fantasies, smothering fantasies, and how they show up.
  • Changing bodies and how you can maintain your kinky lifestyle and sexual activities even if you have a chance in health or ability, because Ken is currently navigating this space.
  • Why Ken asking his doctor about sex and his heart condition is just so funny.
  • Hand sex and why it’s amazing. We all three agree that intercourse is not our favorite way to do sex, and we discuss why.
  • Kink and how to talk about your kinky fantasies and curiosities if you’re just starting to think about it.
  • Why Sunny & Ken draw an older audience to their classes and shows. Sometimes age and experience really do matter.
  • What menopause has been like for Sunny and why we don’t talk about menopause, aging, and sex nearly enough. Sunny’s orgasms have been changing, as well as her libido.
  • Sunny’s favorite joke about butts.
  • Listener Pro-Pubes wrote in with a question about how navigate the politics of pubic hair. So many people shame Pro Pubes about their pubic hair and even though they know pubic hair is a personal choice, it can feel terrible to be judged. What can they do? Ken, Sunny, and I weigh in.
  • Ken talks about what a merkin is and where it came from. You might be surprised.
  • FISTING! Siren wrote in asking about fisting and Ken and Sunny are the perfect guests to help me field this listener question. What’s fisting like and what’s it about?
