“I really wanted to make a living doing what I loved.”

—  Dr. Emily Morse

Sex educator, podcast and radio host, YouTuber, columnist, talk show guest, and best-selling author Dr. Emily Morse not only changed the way that people think and talk about sex. She’s also created her own media empire.

In the early days of podcasting when people were still trying to figure out monetization, Emily was a pioneer.

“Advertising in podcasting was still a really unknown medium. I felt like I was an influencer before there was the word ‘influencer,’ because I started talking about toys that I liked,” Emily explains. “One of the bonuses was that, while I wasn’t making money, I was getting a lot of free sex toys and products!”

When the sales for a particular toy Emily mentioned rose by 40% within a single day, the company took notice and reached out to work with her. 

Emily began to build her business — and her income — through sponsorships.

Both money and sex are controversial, taboo topics that generate a lot of discomfort. In fact, many people avoid talking about either! 

“If you think about money and sex, we just are so shameful and society doesn’t encourage us to have healthy conversations around it,” Emily says. “Both of those topics are shrouded in mystery and we think that it’s just not polite or it’s disrespectful to talk about it.”

Her work, like mine, is devoted to opening up space for uncomfortable topics. So strap yourself in, press play, and get ready for a fascinating conversation!

  • The 3 Ts that will help you have healthy and productive conversations about anything
