“Pittsburgh-based Peepshow Is the Sex Podcast for Life in 2018,” Pittsburgh City Paper

Published: March 5, 2018

Over the past year or so, Americans have continued to evolve on how they view sex, consent and sexual identity. A new Pittsburgh-based podcast called Peepshow, from PJ and Jessie Sage, seeks to address how that conversation has changed in such a short period.

“There is a shortage of nuanced discourse around sex and sex work,” Jessie wrote in an email to CP. “The people we knew who worked in the industry were smart, thoughtful, complex people with a lot to say. We really wanted to create a platform for them to share their stories and insights. I think that it is very easy to “other” sex workers (as well as other marginalized sex-related identities), the podcast works to undo that othering, to humanize people.”
