The Plug Podcast is taking anal sex conversations deeper. Your host Luna Matatas, Sex and Pleasure Educator is answering your anal sex questions and bringing special expert guests to the discussion. Brought to you by b-Vibe, a premium collection of tech-forward anal play products.
We’re taking you on a booty journey around the world to explore social and cultural contexts that influence our experiences of pleasure. Dr. Jess O’Reilly joins us, along with four educators from India, Singapore, Germany, and South Africa, to talk about what anal conversations are like outside of North America. - How does culture, social context and geography influence how we think about anal sex? - What happens where there isn’t enough access to comprehensive sex education? - How do laws, myths and taboo show up in bedrooms around the world? In some places it’s really hard to get access to sex toys or you might not have the privacy to keep them. Smaller toys can be easier for discretion and beginners. The Vibrating Snug Plug 1 is about the size of a thumb, has a flared base for safety and easy removal.

What can we learn about anal sex from porn? We asked a porn performer! For most of us, porn is where we ‘learn’ about sex.
