Guys We F****d: Using Humor To Fight Slut-Shaming | Disruption Mag


Uh…
(laughter) You want us to introduce ourselves as the
Guys We F****d podcast? Okay. Welcome to Guys We F****d: the anti slut-shaming podcast. (laughter) I never stop. Hey, I’m Corinne Fisher. I’m Krystyna Hutchinson.
And we are co-hosts of Guys We F****d: the anti slut-shaming podcast. Several years ago I was dumped by the former love of my life in a Panera Bread. And Krystyna and I were already working together at that time, so we decided to, kind of like, John Cusack it and go back and talk to all the people we’ve ever had relationships with, or slept with, and that turned into Guys We F****d:
the anti slut-shaming podcast. I didn’t realize until I started the podcast
that people have this idea that women don’t like sex–we do. And if you do like sex it doesn’t mean you’re a whore. We very quickly began to receive emails asking our advice: anything from, “How do I tell my girlfriend she’s bad in bed?” to, “I was raped once and I’ve never told
anybody about it.” It’s easier to deliver a message with humor. And we’ve talked to so many comedians who, just the worst things have happened to them and they are able to take it and turn it around and turn it into comedy. And that helps the listeners who are not in a place to do that at all kind of, heal. We have talked to a guy whose dad is a pedophile. A couple in an open relationship. And a very famous porn star who happened to date my boyfriend right before I started dating him, inspiring me to create the word, ‘femasculated.’ Women are such a, such huge targets for sex-shaming and slut-shaming. A lot of women are taught, and a lot of men are taught, that a woman’s value is her looks. If she has too much sex, she’s a whore; but if she doesn’t have a lot of sex she’s kind of a prude. Our goal, really, was to be the female Howard Stern. because we wanted to let everyone know
that like, hey, this is how we really talk about sex–guess what? It’s almost identical to the way men talk
about sex…but probably with just some more information.
