Unfiltered, uncensored, and unapologetic best-friend conversations on dating and relationships, celebrities and pop culture, the craziness of life, other people’s problems, social chaos, and that fun we call s.e.x.  It's raunchy, but real and relatable.

Aug 31, 2015

What do you get when you have a straight man and a gay man; friends, besties, bffs? Can straight men and gay men be real friends? Ken Shadford joins us to discuss that rarity and other treasures including: first dates being overrated, pet names and nicknames being different from babe and bae, the understanding of intercrural sex, decriminalizing sex work after the latest incidents with RentBoy and Ashley Madison, and Miley Cyrus coming out as pansexual. Messy Connections makes an even messier return -- the alledged activities at New York Sports Club locations never disappoint --and The Butcher's Block has a side piece who wants a due benefit.
