  16. Hello! We are Banging Book Club, three friends who decided to read a book about sex every month of 2016. We thought we'd document it in a monthly podcast, which you can listen to here! We hope you enjoy it - feel free to subscribe to our podcasts on iTunes or listen on Soundcloud. If you're looking for spoiler free summaries of each book, we have created a five minute video for each read which you can find the link to in the description of each podcast. Basically, we're the baddest bitches in the sex book genre and we want to take you along for the ride.
