Sluts & Scholars is one of Cosmopolitan's "Hot Podcasts to Listen To." Nicoletta Heidegger is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (#110256) and Sexologist. She chats 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.

This week Nicoletta is joined by founder and director of GayTherapyLA Ken Howard, LCSW. Ken explains why gay men need a therapy specialization, living through the HIV/AIDS epidemic, survivor guilt, minority stress, and appearance privilege. Also featured: when should you tell someone your STI status, Broadway, and PrEP.
