Women, Work & Writing About Sex: Get to Know Em & Lo!

We were just interviewed for The Broad Experience, an excellent podcast about women, work and success that’s produced by British-born writer and public radio reporter, Ashley Milne-Tyte. We talk about our origins, our strengths, our weaknesses, our reproduction and our attempt to find a place between the single 20-something sex writer and Dr. Ruth. Please check it out and if you like The Broad Experience, consider writing a review on iTunes.

Entrepreneurs – and sex and relationship writers – Em and Lo began working together at Nerve.com in the late ’90s. They left the mothership to form their own ‘sex writing empire’ (or close enough) in the mid 2000s. Many entrepreneurs are advised to take on at least one partner. These two women did that, and the partnership is still going strong many years (and four children) later. In this show they talk about the advantages of working with a partner, how they suffer from some of the afflictions common to professional women(they may be able to talk openly about sex, but asking for more money from an editor is another matter), how a brand like theirs has to evolve as they, and their kids, get older, and why their music teacher’s husband can’t look them in the eye. 15 minutes.
