From your Slut in Shining Armor

The last week has been my first full week working for myself—working for youreally! I left my day job on December 1. And I did my first full week of going to a coffee shop, working on the podcast, working on my stand-up, going to open mics, buying dry erase boards for my bedroom so I can write jokes on my walls. It’s literally the dream. The dream is to live a lifestyle where I work a few odd jobs to make ends meet, have cheap rent, and pursue my passion. My passion happens to be making strangers laugh and talking about my dick. Those are my passions! And I would not be here without you, the listeners.

There are so many of you, and there’s more and more of you every week! That’s because so many of you are sharing the show with your friends. The amount of you that have told me I’m a big hit in your office or on your dorm floor is amazing. That’s how we grow this show. I wanted to thank all of you for that! I also want to thank you all for being such loyal listeners and for downloading every week and following me on Twitter and for mailing me cookies (for the two of you who’ve sent me delicious packages over the years). It really warms my heart.

The Patreon for The Manwhore Podcast is more important now than ever. I quit the day job, in part, because the Patreon has reached a level where it takes a good chunk out of the money I need to make in a month. I figured, if it’s already at this level (over $300 a month pledged by dozens of Official Fanwhores!), and I commit full time to the podcast—give  my110%—I think that will grow.

And I hope you all support the sponsors who support me, but I’m proud to say that my biggest sponsors are the listeners themselves! The Patreon page has brought in more money than sponsors, donations, gifts combined. And I’m really proud of that. I think it’s great to be sustained by your fan base. That’s why I’m asking you all to become an Official Fanwhore for $1/month. Just $1/month means you value independent content creators. It means you value the people you enjoy listening to or watching or reading each week. If each of you pledged $1/month—which is 25¢ per episode—I could commit full time to you. For just $1/month, 25¢ per episode. And I’m not asking it for nothing!

Patreon is kind of like a monthly fan club subscription. You get different rewards for pledging different amounts. For example, if you pledge $4 or more per month, you get exclusive access to bonus episodes of The Manwhore Podcast. I’ve got over 20 bonus episode on Patreon right now for those of you who support me there. If you’ve been listening to me for years, 25¢ per episode—$1/month—changes the life of one whore in Brooklyn. So he can keep giving you sex-positive, vulnerable, honest, hopefully funny content each week. I have released 140 episodes every Wednesday without a week.

If you all support me, I will be your Slut in Shining Armor. I will do cool fucking shit. I have some really awesome things lined up! The happy ending massage episode is happening, for real. I’m bringing back the Naked Episodes in 2017 that you all loved so much! And I can do even more cool shit if I can focus all of my time and energy on doing that. I’m not trying to beg. You’re getting cool stuff in return for your pledges.

I’ve quit my day job. I’ve committed to you. I hope you will commit to me, too.

If you’d like to support me and the sex-positive conversations I’m having on the internet, click here to become an Official Fanwhore for just $1/month. Or you can download the Patreon app and find The Manwhore Podcast on there.

Love you all. Except Todd (and even he pledges $4/month).
