The co-host of American Sex Podcast is helping her listeners to Think Kink—and to have a few laughs while they’re at it.
If you’re thinking about going into sex podcasting because you want to get rich, you might want to talk to Sunny Megatron first. Formerly the host of Showtime’s Sex With Sunny Megatron, the charming redhead currently co-hosts American Sex Podcast with husband Ken Melvoin-Berg. And while Sunny admits that talking about sex is her professional career, no one said anything about entering that field for the cash.
“I don’t do this for the money,” Megatron says with a cheerful chuckle. “Technically I’m making a living, but how do you define that? It’s really more of a ramen noodles living we have going on…”
“I had all these kink fantasies. That’s all I thought about when I was alone masturbating, although at the time I thought I was just a weirdo.”
Before Megatron was a sex expert and sex educator—or a “pleasure advocate,” as she describes herself—Sunny Megatron was just a regular girl. She says that, unlike many other people, she did not spend her 20s in a period of “sexual exploration,” instead having a series of long, monogamous relationships and not yet delving into the world of kink.
Which is not to say Sunny didn’t have filthy thoughts.
“Oh yes; I had a dark and dirty mind,” she says, “and I had all these kink fantasies. That’s all I thought about when I was alone masturbating, although at the time I thought I was just a weirdo.”
