Description

Why do guys just want to f*ck you once then stalk your Instagram forever? Should you ditch the apps and meet people in the wild? How do you get over a breakup when you feel like you're gonna die?

These are all topics discussed on Girls Gotta Eat -- a hilarious podcast from Rayna Greenberg (@Rayna.Greenberg) and Ashley Hesseltine (comedian + creator of @BrosBeingBasic).

We have an extra unfiltered episode with our new favorite person, Beatrice Dixon, founder of The Honey Pot Company. We discuss vaginal health and how Bea's struggle with chronic bacterial vaginosis led her to create a line of plant-based feminine care products, and then we get into all the sex stuff -- anal tips, threesome etiquette, blowjob noises, masturbation fantasies, and more. We're also discussing body confidence and living a life aligned with your purpose. And we catch up on Rayna's country life, Ashley's city life, new TV recs, and play a hilarious round of Psycho or Power Move. Hope you enjoy!

Are We Too Different?

Are We Too Different?

2020-06-1501:37:062

Opposites attract (allegedly), but what if you just don't have much in common? We're exploring differences with your partner in this episode -- having different hobbies and interests, when it's healthy, when your partner's hobby is a lifestyle (or an obsession) and you're not into it and vice versa, core values that should align for a solid relationship, and even how to discuss what's happening in the world right now with a partner who is dismissive. We're also discussing Ashley's feelings on surprises, Rayna's recent period snafu, and bringing back Is This Weird? with some extra ridiculous/hilarious submissions. We hope you enjoy!

Let's Talk About It

Let's Talk About It

2020-06-0531:344

This is an explanation of some incidents that have happened recently we need to address. We apologize in advance for taking any time and attention away from the important issues in this country (and world) right now.
We're talking with Eric Klinenberg, sociologist and author (and co-author of Modern Romance with Aziz Ansari), about the rise of living alone, why women aren't settling for long-term partners, and what life looks like when you're happily unmarried. But we're also discussing relationships -- how we choose partners (are we doing it wrong?) and what we expect from our partners (is it realistic?). Plus, we review Normal People and bring back That Took a Turn. We are also addressing race and our country's current state of affairs.  Check out Eric's website with all his books and info, and follow him on Twitter @EricKlinenberg.

We're joined by comedian Nicole Byer to chat about dates gone wrong, blowjob and 69 tips, body positivity, haters, and more. We're also discussing the Call Her Daddy controversy, our latest sexual fantasies (including outfit details), updates on Ashley's bush and Rayna's porn watching habits, and listener submissions of the first thing you all are doing out of quarantine.

WE WERE ON A BREAK!

WE WERE ON A BREAK!

2020-05-1801:52:362

Yes, we're diving into the infamous, most confusing, frustrating, grayest area of a relationship: Taking a break. We discuss if/when  it's a good idea, setting boundaries, managing expectations, how to act on the receiving end of the "I just need some space" statement, how it can make or break a long-term relationship, the type of guy to stop taking breaks with, and more. We're also catching up on Rayna's new crushes-from-afar and Ashley's mice/vibrator drama, and bringing back one of our favorite segments...Fuck My Phone. Enjoy!

We are discussing sexual assault on this episode with Brittany Piper -- survivor, speaker, healing coach, and sexual violence expert. (*Trigger warning* for those who are sensitive to this topic.) Brittany shares her story and healing process, and educates us on the body and brain function during and after an assault. We cover consent, reporting (and not reporting) an assault, dating as a survivor, talking to your partner about your past, precautions, and more. Prior to the interview, we catch up on lighter topics like Rayna's nude confession, Ashley's tequila week, and of course, tv and movie recs. We hope you find this episode impactful, and sending love to all survivors of sexual assault. Follow Brittany on Instagram @TheBrittPiper and learn more on her website.

Is it hot in here or is that just this episode? We are so excited to share our talk with Dr. Emily Morse of Sex with Emily about how to have hotter sex starting now (or your next post-pandemic opportunity). We cover taking control of your sex life, figuring out what you want in bed, how to spice it up with your partner in quarantine, tips for phone and video sex, managing a low sex drive/lack of desire, techniques for better oral, and more. We also catch up on ANOTHER of Rayna's exes resurfacing, which stage of the pandemic we're currently in (hint: citrus fruit), and Ashley's latest celeb crush (with a movie review, of course).

We have a legend on deck -- author/comedian Greg Behrendt, the man responsible for "He's Just Not That Into You", both the book and the famous Sex and the City quote (he worked on the iconic show for six years). We discuss the book and go deeper on other dating-related and life topics like falling out of love with a partner, why some people accept so little in relationships, the first step to getting over someone, how to stop taking bullshit from fuckers (including yourself), and more. And of course we had to ask him our burning questions about SATC and his feelings on the movie adaptation of his book. We also catch up on one of Rayna's exes resurfacing, the show Ashley can no longer watch in her parents' house, and we turn the tables on our topic with listeners answering "I knew I wasn't into him when....".

This is our Fight Song (episode) and we're talking about how to manage conflict in relationships, from minor triggers with someone you just started dating to big blowouts with your long-term partner. We cover how to rein in passive aggression and assumptions, keys to healthier discussions, approaches for confrontation, alcohol as a factor, being proactive to avoid future fights, and more. We also discuss the Stages of the Pandemic people are going through (why is everyone naked??), give our long-awaited review of He's Just Not That Into You, AND bring back Psycho or Power Move.

We're getting in our feelings today, fam. Awareness coach and Gestalt therapist Adela Raffa joins us to discuss all the things we're going through right now -- loneliness, anxiety, helplessness, lethargy, even "surprisingly ok" -- and how to cope. We cover communication with a partner (both in quarantine and long-distance) as well as friends and family, anger management, handling grief, and more. We're also sharing the hilarious ways our listeners are "self-caring" and serving up some fire book recommendations and outdated movie reviews. We hope you enjoy!

We finally have our long-awaited guest from Netflix's Love Is Blind -- Kelly Chase! We chat with her about how she got on the show, what it was like to date someone she couldn't see, her decisions regarding sex, and what really went down with her and Kenny after filming ended (you might be surprised!).

2020-03-2301:19:551

Uncertain and scary times are among us, but we're still going to bring you humor, "hot takes", and dating discussions while also approaching the situation seriously and offering insight on how to help. In our first official "pandemic episode", we're chatting about the current state of dating during social distancing from unexpected breakups to exes/former flames crawling back with apologies and booty calls. We're also making predictions about what "our new normal" means for couples, app dating, fuckboys, and more. AND we're sharing the ridiculous Pandemic Pickup Lines our lady listeners have been receiving. Enjoy and stay safe!

We had #BachelorNation favorite Kendall Long join us in the LA studio to cover some lighter topics (What do you ask someone on a first date to see if you vibe?) to the much heavier (How do you let someone you love go when your future plans don't align?). She opens up about her relationship with Joe -- meeting in Paradise, choosing where to live, trusting him on Dancing With the Stars, and the painful breakup they just went through, largely due to where they wanted to live. We also share our listeners' first date questions (and answer them ourselves), and recap more of our Australian adventures including the best hotels to take nudes in and Rayna's man mission.

We also share the inspirational ways our listeners got uncomfortable and changed their own lives for the better. We hope you love and learn from this episode as much as we did!
