You Need To Be Listening To 'Sluts & Scholars'

Being the huge podcast fan that I am, I tend to go through them rather quickly. While on the search for a new podcast I stumbled upon one called Sluts & Scholars. I had to listen because with a name like that I HAD to see what it was and I was not disappointed.

As hosts Nicoletta and Simone put it, they help make your sex smarter and your smarts sexier. Their podcast plays host to countless amazing (as they say) slutty scholars ranging from high ranking public officials to actresses, to porn stars.

The issues and topics that are discussed never cease to surprise me and I promise you will never be bored. Nicoletta and Simone help create a safe atmosphere for their guests and listeners to be welcomed into a sex-positive, shame-free place.

Now, you might be asking yourself, is this podcast just going to be talking about sex for an hour? No, it is so much more than that. The hosts make sure that this is an educational atmosphere as well by helping explain things to their audience that they might be too afraid to Google for themselves.

The women of Sluts & Scholars help normalize the conversations around sex and bring it into a regular conversation instead of making sex a dirty word.

When I first found this, as someone who counts herself as a more traditional woman who 100% does not talk casually about sex, I was unsure about what I was going to find or get out of this.

I went in not totally expecting what to find and I fell in love. This podcast helped open and expand my narrow mind and helped changed how I viewed sex and how we talk about it. I also learned a little bit more about having true girl power through not only the hosts but their guests as well.

All of the guests that Nicoletta and Simone have are all strong and amazing women and you get to learn so much from each and every one of them because it seems as though no question is off limits. Each guest is so open to all of their questions and is all about helping educate and expanding the minds of the listeners.

In case their star-studded guest list isn't enough for you to think they are super credible, Nicoletta is a Marriage and Family Therapist Associate and a nearly certified Sexologist and Simone is going into law school to focus on reproductive health laws. These girls are smart, educated, and passionate about their field and it really shows in their works.

Sluts & Scholars has kept me company on so many road trips and has helped me learn so much about myself and has also helped open my eyes to the world around me. I have learned so much while listening to this show and I think that this podcast is a necessity for everyone.

While it is more geared towards women, it speaks to so many new levels and audiences. It touches tough topics like reproductive health, porn and the porn industry, LGBT issues, transgender people, and so much more. Sluts & Scholars has helped me learn more about the ever-changing world around me and did it in a way that I can understand since this is a podcast made by young women for young women.

Listen on Spotify or look online to find other places to listen. It's worth it.

As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
