IAmA podcaster who spent the last 5 years interviewing my exes about why we didn’t work out. Today’s my podiversary. AMA!
My name is Billy Procida and I am a stand-up comedian in New York City. Five years ago today, I started a show talking to women I’ve hooked up with about sex, dating, and why we didn’t work out. I called it The Manwhore Podcast: A Sex-Positive Quest for Love. The podcast started because women would sleep with me, but they wouldn’t date me. I wanted to find out why. It may sound like every guy’s dream, but having your heart broken over and over takes a toll on you.
I’ve also talked with some of the best sex educators, porn stars, sex workers, queer performers, and feminist authors out there. A few years ago, I was able to quit my day job to do The Manwhore Podcast full-time—something I’m grateful for every day. Both Esquire and Uproxx named my show a Top 10 Sex Podcast.
In the last five years, I’ve caught up with 98 partners, held oral sex auditions for a frustrated female friend, went speed dating on mic, did a porno, got called out for being problematic, organized Reddit gangbangs, cried a lot on mic, and conducted an interview while getting a happy ending massage.
TL;DR my past sexual partners tell me why they wouldn’t date me and then I turned that into a job
Ask me anything!
p.s. you can listen to The Manwhore Podcast anywhere you listen to podcasts that isn’t Soundcloud
3:57pm ET - Still answering questions! Though I finished up the last question worth answering and was like...it's been two hours?!
5:00pm ET - Just started listening to tomorrow's episode, so I'm still around to answer questions! I'll have to take a break in a few hours to go work out but I'll be in all night editing and locking the episode and thursday's bonus show on Patreon. Which means feel free to tack on a question or comment! I'd say I'm 'done' whenever I fall asleep late tonight.
8:00pm ET - mods have marked it not live, but I *will* be online all night if you still have questions. Otherwise, thank you all SO MUCH for making my 5-year podiversary a super fun one! Please go check out The Manwhore Podcast wherever you get your podcasts :)
