Best friends Corinne and Krystyna take time out from their hectic comedy circuit schedules to bring us weekly insights into theirs and their friends’ sex lives. The NYC natives are bold, brash and utterly hilarious. No topic is too risqué and the girls deliver their stories with often-breathtaking honesty.

With episode called things like, “A killer foo-foo, a bagel brawl and Sue Barker’s wire hanger “ we defy you not to snort out loud on the tube when listening.
