An uncensored conversation about sex and self from the creators of the top-rated Guys We F--ked: The Anti Slut-Shaming Podcast.
Comedians Corinne Fisher and Krystyna Hutchinson started Guys We F--ked: The Anti Slut-Shaming Podcast in 2013, intending to interview guys they'd slept with to learn more about themselves and squash the stigma so often associated with sexual women. As the podcast grew, and Corinne and Krystyna got to know their fans, stories of sexual assault, verbal and emotional abuse and crippling shame became common topics of discussion along with those humorous conversations highlighting overall sexual confusion among many adults.
The podcast is now a community of over a million listeners worldwide and a place where any and all taboo sex topics are discussed freely, both with celebrity guests and the real people in their lives. F--cked follows that model, as Corinne and Krystyna present a mix of raw, ridiculous and serious sexual conversation, including topics like:
Why shame is completely made up and how we can stop giving in to it
Sexual exploration and how it sometimes ends in a trip to A&E
Stuff we should stop doing: snooping, nitpicking our bodies and faking orgasms
Asking your sexual partner uncomfortable questions
How to get yourself out of an unsafe situation
Masturbation, threesomes, porn, sex toys, butt stuff and much, much more
This is a guide to love and sex for anyone who has ever felt afraid to be their authentic sexual self. It won't talk down to you or coddle you, because you're better than that. Despite what rom-coms and glossy magazines tell you, you can handle sexual exploration without the assistance of a man, a glass of rosé or a Xanax - and, more importantly, you're fine all by yourself.

Funny, informative and important
I loved getting to spend more time with the people who I love so much from the 'Guys We Fucked' podcast. This book goes more in depth into the subjects that we usually hear about at the beginning of the podcast and I heard lots of new facts about sex and sexuality that I hadn't heard before. As someone who prides themselves on knowing lots about both, I still found this book helpful and also feel it gave me some emotional support and advice that was helpful to hear, as well as some important information on sexual assault and abortion that I honestly think everyone could do with hearing. Wish I had had this book growing up and wish that those around me had it too.
I think you should listen to the book but some of my favourite chapter were on body confidence and how to overcome anxiety in a world that profits off your imperfections.
The authors read their amazing story with the same wit and wisdom that they bring to their podcast. Corinne's dry humour and Krystyna's warmth are palpable as they read their humorous stories, conveying an important message with the candid attitude it deserves.
I found Krystina's chapter addressing rape and Corinne's addressing body image particularly moving. They aren't patronising and don't talk down to their audience whilst also being entertaining and thoughtful.
Listen to this book. Thank you to Corinne and Krystyna for writing it. As a dyslexic I think that the fact that I took the time to spell Krystyna's name right is recommendation enough.
