She also expressed concern that “there is a lot of misinformation out there and so many assumptions that we make,” noting that her inbox is regularly overflowing with myriad questions and levels of concern relating to healthy intimacy and relationships.
“I worry sometimes, especially with a lot of the questions that I get, because so many of them are just grounded in this idea that there is one right way to do intimacy, there’s one right way to even talk about sex. And I’m like ‘No, sex can be funny and weird and awkward and silly and goofy. I wish the adult industry would show that kind of sex more.”
Osborn also revealed her love of being able to communicate with like-minded people through her podcast, Catie and Erik’s Infinite Quest. “The feedback that we kept getting was, ‘I’ve never heard a podcast where people unapologetically talk like me, and think like me and aren’t embarrassed when they lose their train of thought… if they forget what’s going on in the game… or change the subject 400 times!’
“As a content creator, you’re always expected to niche yourself… I feel like the more that you share yourself, the more that you share your passions and your interests, the things that light up your soul, you are bringing that community to you and you are saying… I am a fantastically complicated and complex and interesting human… I think that is the thing that excites me most about content as a whole, I just get to be excited about stuff for my job.
