Mina et Jade
Sex and Porn
This French bi-monthly podcast is run by Mina and Jade, and is an exploration of pornographic culture. The two journalists define themselves as “Xtreme movie fans” who “evoke without complex and with humor this culture that is easily accessible but still gets bad press.”
Each episode deals with a specific theme, such as: Why certain porn productions are trendy (Furry, Ahegao, ASMR)? Why did Rocco Siffredi make such an impact on the industry? Why can the secretary fantasy be harmful? What are the more inclusive and feminist alternatives to mainstream porn?
This podcast has made a big impression on me because hearing two women talking about porn is quite rare. The two journalists bring a very interesting look on this topic and push the reflection beyond pornography. We discover famous personalities of the industry, we observe along with them the influence of porn on pop culture and/or vice versa. There is both lightness and humor while not forgetting to evoke the important issues that pornography raises.
It’s a way to take the pressure off a taboo subject that, in one way or another, affects everyone. It puts things into perspective, we learn stuff and it feels good! May
