Sluts & Scholars is one of Cosmopolitan's "Hot Podcasts to Listen To." Nicoletta Heidegger is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (#110256) and Sexologist and Simone is an actor-turned-law-student who really likes to talk about sex stuff. Together, they chat with folks from across sexuality, kink, and professional spectrums about desire, pleasure, shame, stigma and (of course) bodily functions. 

Combining irreverence and expertise, on the docket is anything remotely related to sexual, reproductive and bodily autonomy; from the indigenous menstrual practices of the Hupa Valley tribe, to beauty confidence advice from Dita von Teese,  anal sex pro tips from Jessica Drake, and Cyberstalking with Amber Heard. Join these slutty scholars as they help to make your sex smarter, and your smarts sexier.
