The son of a pedophile. A famous porn star. A woman raped in the back of an ambulance.
These are the stories of Guys We F****d, the anti slut-shaming podcast created by comedians Krystyna Hutchinson and Corinne Fisher. What started as an idea to “John Cusack” their own sexual experiences—aka interview every man they ever slept with—has evolved into a feminist bastion. A place where sex and sexuality are talked about frankly to 620,000 weekly subscribers.
“People carry so much shame about sex,” Fisher explains. “Because kids are taught from a very young age all the things they do wrong [about sex] as opposed to the things they do right.”
It’s a culture in which women especially are told: Don’t do that; don’t say that; don’t crave that. And it’s why these New York stand ups—the self-described “female Howard Stern”—have decided to use comedy to fight sexism. Their not-so-subtle combination of humor, shock and feminist ideals explores issues rarely mentioned in the media, destigmatizing and healing listeners in the process.
