For our final show of #MaxFunDrive 2016 we decided to pander and devote an entire show to sex. So we're asking what pop culture turns us on? What films, TV, books or music first made us burn with desire? And what are our favorite sex scenes?

With Guy Branum, Wynter Mitchell, Oliver Wang and Margaret Wappler.

That’s My Jam:
Wynter Mitchell - Know Me From by Stormzy
Oliver Wang - I Want A Little Sugar In My Bowl by Nina Simone
Margaret Wappler - Brazil by Declan McKenna
Guy Branum - Here You Come Again by Dolly Parton

Each week we’ll add everyone’s jams to this handy Spotify playlist.

You can let us know what you think of Pop Rocket and suggest topics in our Facebook group or via @PopRocket on Twitter.

Produced by Colin Anderson & Christian Dueñas for MaximumFun.org.

Success! 5,000+ new and upgrading members!

| 0 comments

We've achieved our goal of 5,000 new and upgrading members. In fact, we've breezed past our goal, and we're at 5,762. This is just astonishing; if you've already stepped up and joined or upgraded, thank you so much. If not, you still have 3 1/4 days to join or upgrade your membership, get all of our exclusive pledge drive thank you gifts, and add to our growing grand total.

For every new and upgrading member above our initial goal of 5,000, MaxFun will be donating the cash equivalent of 5 meals to our friends at the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. That means we're already in for over 3800 meals for needy families in LA, and we're not stopping until the drive ends on Friday. Let's give back to MaxFun HQ's home community, together!

Plus, we're adding a stretch goal to the mix! If we hit 7,500 new and upgrading members, we'll release a pack of MaxFun Digital Premiums for $5+ monthly donors, which will include:

- A pledge drive exclusive desktop wallpaper designed by Megan Lynn Kott (the genius brain behind the beautiful MaxFun bandana designs) featuring all of your favorite MaxFun hosts geared up for an old-timey adventure

- An exclusive MaxFunDrive ringtone!

We're about to head out to our local MaxFun meet up tonight (you can find yours here), but we just had to give you this awesome news and thank you again for your amazing support and listenership. Let's finish strong!
