Masterful, intimate, and delightful!
This will be the first iTunes review I have ever written, but in this case I find myself compelled.
Horizontal With Lila is quickly becoming one of my favorite podcasts. I discovered it because a close friend of mine was a guest on one of the episodes and even in the show's infancy (currently 4 episodes in) it's been a welcome discovery! And not just welcome, but impactful. I hope the show will be around for a long time to come.
Lila is masterful at what she does, which is to create a safe and intimate space for guests to join her and have personal, sensual, and far-reaching conversations around the most delicate experiences from their lives. There are currently many other podcasts dealing with the topic of sexuality but this one has a presence, an immediacy, a heart, a delight, and an authentic curiosity to it that I think sets it apart. "Horizontal" takes some of my favorite elements from other shows like The Heart, Death Sex and Money, and even Risk and expands on them.
At the center of the show is Lila, herself, of course. Her velvet voice is soothing and sultry; it puts one at ease. And yet one gets the feeling that beneath the warm questions there is a searching zeal that won't relent. In particular, I was delighted with the way Lila doesn't just breeze through topics with her guests but rather circles around those topics and those questions, returning time and again, until it feels she has really drawn her guests out and given them the opportunity to plumb the depths of their stories, should they choose to. Not many hosts take the time to do that quite so naturally or so intentionally.
The conceit of the show is brilliant, as well: recording the exchange while lying down together. It brings an unguarded quality to the conversation that I find rare in produced content and feels like we, the audience, are being invited to eavesdrop on a couple's private pillow talk.
It seems that in pretty much every way Horizontal With Lila is a gift. Give it a listen: I think you will find it's worth your time!

Lila's lucious voice melts you immediately. She takes you into her bed and lets your ears watch as she unzips intimate conversations with her special guest of the evening. The topics she so elloquently touches on will arouse your curiousity and catalyze you to both reflect upon and quesiton the extent to which your personal sexual belief system is adulterated by the normative ethos of your environment. Spend a couple hours horizontal with Lila, and you will walk away a satisfied listener.
Empoweringly Open Conversations
I'm blown away by this podcast. Lila offers her guests so much space and love, and shares so much of herself that she is met with honesty and such deep conversation. It's so powerful hearing a podcast talk so openly and directly about love, relationships, sex, fears, and nonmonogamy.
