Wild & Sublime, a sexy spin on infotainment®, is an inclusive podcast and live talk show about sex for everyone, no matter your orientation, preferences, or relationship style.
Wild & Sublime (originally known as Super Tasty) began in Chicago as a live show in October 2018 at Stage 773. Playing to sold-out houses and recommended by the Chicago Reader as “a crazy, sexy, cool talk show” in a “welcoming, nurturing and erotic atmosphere,” the show featured expert interviews, performances, demos, panel discussions and more. Wild & Sublime came to serve as a resource hub for the sex-friendly community in Chicago and beyond.
A New Name
By February 2020, now at the larger Constellation Chicago venue and with momentum building, the show changed its name from Super Tasty to Wild & Sublime to reflect more fully the dynamic view of sexuality that the show embraced.
In July 2020, with the live show on hiatus during COVID, the weekly Wild & Sublime podcast was born. Initially a mix of audio from the former live shows and original content, the podcast eventually came to include long-form interview and panel conversations with sexperts and authors on sexuality, intimacy, and relationships.
Mission & Values
Wild & Sublime celebrates sex through body-centric infotainment. We create a welcoming, inclusive community, attracting people interested in sexuality in all its forms who want to discuss sexual matters with experts and each other. Through these conversations, we help dismantle sexual shame, supporting people to become freer in their sexual expression.
