Curl up and get ready for some steamy erotica recommendations with the latest Geek Girl Riot.
Let’s Talk About Sex, Baby
Sherin, Philip (AKA Pleasure P…we know), and Renee heat up the episode by sharing what being sex positive means to them. They also break down the different levels of consent and enjoyment. Then they talk about why you don’t have to be into certain things if you don’t want to—and you shouldn’t judge others if they are (so long as everyone involved is fully consenting and feels good about it). Our Rioters also look at the differences between erotica and porn and why it’s okay to enjoy both (or just one, or neither)! No judgement here, only a whole lotta fun.
Our First Erotica Thrill
Next it’s time to throw it back to when our Rioters first discovered erotica. From sneaking in books under the covers to stumbling across some late night gems, they dive into what got them hooked on romance. Yup, it’s time to reminisce and rediscover some old flames.
Our Fave Steamy Flicks
