Grindr Launches Sex-Positive Podcast With ‘Drag Race’ Star Katya (EXCLUSIVE)

Grindr, the ubiquitous LGBTQ hookup app that continues to expand into original content, will launch a new sex-focused podcast with “RuPaul’s Drag Race” alum Katya Zamolodchikova.

“Who’s The Asshole?” is billed as a provocative look at love and sex, offering an “unfiltered and judgment-free space to explore the messy gray areas of lust, love and everything in between…the cheeks.” The first episode will hit all major podcast platforms on Feb. 15.

Each week, Katya will sit with celebrity guests and discuss dilemmas and anecdotes submitted by Grindr users. Inaugural visitors include actor Trace Lysette, comedian Jordan Firstman, country star Orville Peck and rapper Saucy Santana.

“When it came to choosing our host, Katya was an absolute no-brainer for us, bringing the perfect combination of honesty, humor and some incredible personal stories,” said Tristan Pineiro, VP of Brand Marketing and Communications at Grindr. “Be it in a hookup or a date, sometimes we can all be the asshole, and Grindr’s new podcast is the no-holds-barred destination where we dig into the good, the bad and the sometimes messy.”

Katya, a prolific digital creator and two-time “RuPaul’s Drag Race” contestant, said she will channel famed sex guru Dr, Ruth Westheimer for the series.

“I love diving deep into the dirty, juicy, filthy tea, so when Grindr said I could be paid to do it?! I jumped at the opportunity with all the enemas and poppers I could find. There are so many topics people are too embarrassed to discuss, but I have no shame to go there,” she said. “No story is too wild, and in fact, we all have them… assholes, that is.”
