By now you must have heard of the Guys We F**ked anti slut-shaming podcast. Product of the comedic geniuses Krystyna Hutchinson and Corinne Fisher, who perform stand-up comedy as Sorry About Last Night, the weekly audio show began as an interview series with their ex-lovers, and progressed into a podcast that tackles topics ranging from sexual taboos, politics, abuse, to many other intersectional issues. The varied viewpoints that this guest-driven show provides offer the listener the chance to broaden their own perspective on this thing we call life.
Corinne and Krystyna have hosted their audio show for over two years and now have a book in the pipeline. Out in October, F*CKED: Being Sexually Explorative and Self-Confident in a World That’s Screwed promises to teach the reader “that you deal with sh*t, you brush your shoulder off, and you move the f*ck on”.
On their site it says that “this is a guide to love and sex for women who drink whiskey because they like it, not because it’s a cute thing to say on your Tinder profile. It has no trigger warnings because life doesn’t come with those. It won’t talk down to you or coddle you because you’re better than that. Corinne and Krystyna aren’t going to explain why he’s just not that into you, because it doesn’t f*cking matter. Despite what television, Rom-Coms, and glossy magazines tell you, you’re fine all by yourself. This is the book Bridget Jones should’ve read instead of writing that sh*tty diary in the first place.”
Empowering online and in print, the Sorry About Last Night duo show us that when it comes to sex, life, and navigating our desires, we have nothing to be ashamed about, and more importantly, no need to apologize.
