I was recently a guest on Sunny Megatron’s “American Sex” podcast — pretty darn cool!
In addition to having one of the most epic names on earth (which is an accolade in of itself IMO), Megatron and co-host Ken Melvoin-Berg deep-dive into “American Sex” guests’ experiences with sexuality, gender, and identity. Some stories are very intimate. Others deal with bigger picture components like fighting legislation or changing the way our society views sex, kink, and unconventional relationships. Every story and guest have one thing in common though — they address and engage the very blurred line between what’s personal and what touches us all.
“American Sex” is funny, smart, and educational, and I had a super great time being a guest!

Here’s their description of the specific episode I’m a guest on:
Dr. Chauntelle studies the sociology of sexuality and sex work. This fascinating conversation integrates the economics, ethics, psychology, politics, and marketing of sex – all critical components of sexual freedom we’re not accustomed to thinking about. We discuss: Why researchers shy away from studying sexuality, how our social and cultural discomforts with sex permeate everything, Stormy Daniels and how she’s single-handedly extinguishing puritanical biases about sex work, the impact of technology on sex, why Visa and Mastercard are at the helm of shaping your sexual preferences and regulating your access to porn, the realities of robot sex and more!
Here’s some interesting information about the “American Sex” podcast hosts:
Sunny Megatron and Ken Melvoin-Berg are sexuality educators/edu-tainers specializing in BDSM, alt-sexuality, and couples play. The pair helped create and produce the groundbreaking, sex-positive TV show “Sex With Sunny Megatron” on Showtime. They are married, parents, ethically non-monogamous, and lifestyle BDSM enthusiasts. Most importantly, Ken and Sunny make awkward topics easy. They’re approachable, authentic, light-hearted, and absolutely hilarious.
Enjoy! What do you think?
