The pandemic completely changed our day-to-day lives, but what about our sex lives? We're discussing how the last year affected couples and singles, and what the fuck the future of sex, dating, and relationships will look like. Our guest is Cosmopolitan editor-in-chief Jessica Pels, and we're unpacking data gathered by an incredible study by the Kinsey Institute in partnership with Cosmo and Esquire (spoiler alert: pleasure is the priority). We're also sharing our listeners' sex/dating outlooks, chatting about bikini waxes vs. sugaring, and our TV recs take a turn. Hope you enjoy!

On this episode, we are sharing stories from our listeners about dating as a woman of color, from messages they receive on apps to partners not understanding their experiences to fetishization. We're also bringing on a former (and favorite) guest Amy Chan, founder of Breakup Bootcamp, to discuss her experience growing up as an Asian woman, feeling shame as a child to leaning into the sexy stereotypes as a young woman, and her mindset today. We also discuss how to talk to your partner about these topics. And before we dive in, we're up to our usual antics with a divorced dude date story from Rayna, Ashley being single-shamed, and a tip for taking your phone sex to the next level. Enjoy!

Are divorced guys the answer? We're unpacking it and Rayna is leaning in. Then we bring in Katya Libin, founder and CEO of HeyMama, to share her story of being a single, working mother -- the struggles and successes, building her own company, the importance of a support system, co-parenting, dating when you have a child, and more. We're also discussing walking away from a relationship you know isn't right (even when it's a month before your wedding), and how to vet someone before considering having children with them. And on the topic of mothers, Ashley shares a legendary story about her mom that we all can relate to. We hope you enjoy! Follow Katya on Instagram @KatyasLife and check out HeyMama.

We're so excited to collab with the Friday Energy pop culture queens, Ria and Fran of Chicks in the Office! We chatted with them about all the gossip of the moment (Royals, Bachelor, Kardashians, Harry and Olivia), but also tapped into their own personal lives/boyfriends, and social media expertise. We're discussing whether cringey social media is a dealbreaker, following/liking hot models on Instagram when you're in a relationship, how to take better photos for your own feed, and more. And before we bring in the Chicks, we're going off about NYC's energy, the vaccine, and Botox/fillers. Hope you enjoy!

In their first podcast interview since getting engaged, we have Hannah Berner of Bravo's Summer House and comedian Des Bishop join us to discuss their whirlwind romance. We're talking about age differences (15 years between them), Facetime sex (they give tips), the Gen X DM slide, going from 0-60 between the first and second date, moving in together quickly, healthy fights (we witness one), and more. We also share our listeners' stories of pandemic proposals, engagements, and breakups (yikes). And we're dropping a crazy Catfish update from Rayna's story last week, Ashley shares an insane customer service experience, and we taste test flavored condoms.
