Envision, as a grownup, having an awesome, street-wise cousin that knows quite a bit about intercourse and provides the very best, judgment-free, well-informed advice about love, dating, and starting up. In my situation, that is Karley Sciortino. The 33-year-old New York–based sex author could be the creator and host of Viceland’s hit show Slutever. The show, which established its 2nd period on February 10, reclaims the term slut by checking out non-normative sex communities, from play parties to polyamory. Sciortino also authors an online sex-and-relationship line for Vogue called imlive.com Breathless and it is an author and administrator producer in the provocative new comedy show Now Apocalypse, arriving at Starz in March.
Not long ago I got the opportunity to have a completely chill, unfiltered talk to Sciortino about casual sex—as in, how exactly to get the best non-committal hookup experiences possible while navigating the present day dating landscape of apps, non-monogamy, rising STI rates, and much more.
