Episode 203: ‘Comedians with Chlamydia‘ (Kate Willett)
Am I polyamorous, or just down to clown? Feminist comedian Kate Willett is thrilled to live in a artist’s convent because “Dating is impossible on a performer’s schedule - this way I can just have casual sex with a roommate!” But after a hookup with the guy downstairs and a subsequent breakup, she discovers that she has Chlamydia. Who knew that contracting an STI could be a bonding experience? And Doc, how many people can I get antibiotics for? #CasualSex #SlutShaming #HealthInsuranceIsExpensive #MercuryInRetrograde
About this week’s storyteller:
Kate Willett is a comedian, actress, and writer whose raunchy feminist storytelling is both smart and relatable. She’s the author of the Audible Original “Dirtbag Anthropology.” Kate made her network debut on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and she has a 15 minute special on Netflix’s “Comedy Lineup.” She’s the cohost of the political comedy podcast Reply Guys.

Guardian article: The secret to great sex? It’s not what you think’ by Alexandra Jones
“For the magnificent lovers [in the study],” says sex educator Emily Nagoski, the author of Come As You Are: the Surprising New Science That Will Transform Your Sex Life, “sex became a way to know themselves and their partners more fully. It was a way to play and explore together – to become vulnerable with one another. To go on an adventure.” And for many, she points out, it led “to feeling more at peace with who they are and more satisfied in their lives generally. It’s really powerful stuff.” https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2021/nov/26/he-secret-to-great-sex-erotic-intimacy-study
