Our Interview with Guys We F@#ked: The Anti Slut-Shaming Podcast | Just For Laughs 2017

Taylor Erwin Blog, Comedians

By: Cheryl Meyer

Co-hosted by the comedy duo Corinne Fisher and Krystyna Hutchinson, Guys We F@#ked: The Anti Slut-Shaming Podcast is a weekly comedy podcast that unapologetically explores human sexuality, social dynamics, and relationships.

Launched in late 2013 as interviews with… well, guys they’ve fucked, GWF has now evolved into candid conversations with celebrities, stand-up comedians, and anyone with an interesting take on the topic of sex. Boasting over half a million subscribers, and in the Top 5 most downloaded comedy podcasts, they’ve been featured in Vogue, The Huffington Post,  Glamour, Elle, on SiriusXM and beyond. Their guests have included Amber Rose, Charlemagne Tha God, Jim Norton, Horatio Sanz, Andy Dick, and more.

From their beginnings as the NYC comedy duo Sorry About Last Night, Corinne and Krystyna have released nearly 200 episodes, wrote the book “F*cked: Being Sexually Explorative and Self-Confident in a World That’s Screwed”, and are touring their live podcast.

Below, we chat with Corinne & Krystyna about how they met, why they started the podcast, and what it was like being dumped in a Panera bread.

For those new to Guys We F@#ked, can you describe what they’ve been missing?

C & K: Two very funny people talking honestly about sexuality, about the mistakes they’ve made, and the lessons they’ve learned. And they happen to be women. Most of the people who haven’t heard or seen our show realize pretty quick that it’s way more fun than they anticipated. Take a chance on our show, we’re not just two dumb whores!

Why did you start the podcast? And considering you’ve completed nearly 200 episodes, what have you learned?

C: I was working my way through college at a management company representing talent. Krystyna applied for an internship a few days a week. After she left, she invited me to a stand up show, and that was it! We started performing and running shows around NYC.

K: During our time working as a comedy duo, Corinne got dumped by the former love-of-her-life at a Panera bread (literally), which obviously caused some self-reflection. So after that break up, she thought we should interview all the guys we’ve ever slept with so we could all learn about ourselves. But what actually came out of that process was this idea of promoting anti-slut shaming, and unfiltered conversations about sex.

C: I’ve learned how normal and boring I am sexually, and how comfortable I am talking about (and trying) new things, and for me, being in a relationship and being private is what gets me going. I found out I was more traditional than I thought, and I feel good about it!

K: What I learned was that so many people carry shame on their shoulders about their sexuality. Now, we’re more confident in ourselves. There’s so much fear about sex and relationships out there. Like, our show’s inbox is almost this window into people’s intimate accounts, and we’ve learned that there’s just so many insecurities out there that people are struggling with.

How do you feel the podcast delivers on its anti-slut-shaming message?

K:  We’re consistently adamant about the message of anti-slut shaming, but we’re not saying those words exactly; it’s more an attitude. Like, when people say to women that they can be anything they want to be, there’s inherent self-doubt that accompanies it. Of course we can, so why do we have to frame the message that way? All we want to do is continue to have an open conversation about sex and as long as we do that, anti-slut shaming is implied and normalized, as it should be. It can feel suffocating for woman to be forced to abide to social expectations, on the show we want to promote that women aren’t perfect and that’s ok.

You’re heading back to Just For Laughs Montreal. What are you most excited for?

C & K: It’s the absolute king of all comedy festivals, and to have all these infamous comedians in the same room at the same time, it’s like Disneyland. We’re fangirling 24/7! We got to meet Tom Green, and we’re taking pictures and getting signatures with all our favorite comics. It’s awesome! And we absolutely love Canadian audiences.
