April 26, 2022
Netflix has a new groundbreaking series, and we have brought together one of the stars as well as the executive producer of the show to talk about it with our listeners. Dirty Lola and The Principles of Pleasure Executive Producer Thalia Mavros join Jon for an in depth conversation about the program that takes the mystery out of the pleasures of a woman.
Dirty Lola is a sex edutainer, speaker, and self-proclaimed dildo slinger. Known for her live sex ed Q&A show Sex Ed A Go-Go and as co-host of New York Magazine’s web series “Sex Probz”, Lola has spent almost a decade working to end the stigma and shame surrounding sex and sexuality. Having started her journey sharing personal discoveries with polyamory and kink online, Lola now uses her knowledge, warm candor, and public platforms to teach the masses in-person and to rapt Internet audiences.
In addition to her educational projects, Lola is also the creative director of Spectrum Journal an online magazine offshoot of the female-owned online sex shop, Spectrum Boutique based in Detroit, and has brought her unique brand of sex-positive sex education to the Netflix docuseries The Principles of Pleasure and to brands such as B-Vibe, Spencers Gifts, and Math Magazine.
