My First Smut

My First Smut: Sexy Audiobooks Make Roadtrips Better

My First Smut is a recurring feature where we talk about our formative smut experiences. These short confessionals may include such details as: What book did you read? How old were you? Were there other people involved? What made the experience special? What role does smut play in your life?

This week, Kandy from What The Smut Podcast talks about reading Outlander for the first time.


First romance novel you read:

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

How old were you?

In my thirties

How’d you get your hands on the book?

I was making a 22 hour drive from California to Oklahoma alone and needs something to listen to in the car. I found the book under sci-fi and time travel and it was LONG!

What was the reading experience like?

It is an awesome sci-fi book with the time travel angle but geez louise I near ran my car into a ditch when the first EXPLICIT sex scene started. Of course, I have devoured every line of that series and reread the entire lot whenever a new book comes out. May all of the gods bless you Diana Gabaldon.

What made the experience special?

I had read teen romance as a kid but had no idea that this was a thing. Give me more, give me more!!

What role does smut play in your life?

I spend a lot of time and effort co-hosting a podcast dedicated to Smut!


Thanks Kandy! Outlander was a formative romance-reading experience for Holly as well. (Thanks Mom!)
