Amid a pandemic that’s touched every aspect of our lives—from the emotional to the financial—what has COVID-19 done to our sexual appetites? In this episode, Alex Wagner talks to three professionals with particular insight into the country’s deepest and (mostly) unspoken desires. First, we hear from Alison Boden, CEO of the porn site kink.com about how the nationwide lockdown has affected an industry not known for social distancing. Then, we're joined by J. Leigh, a BDSM dominatrix, forced to move out of the dungeon (literally) and on to the internet. And finally, we speak with Lotus Lain, an industry relations advocate and adult film actress who explains the ways in which porn actors have been better prepared for a global pandemic... than basically everyone else.
