    "Mango Habanero" is a random conversation-starter game that Simone made up to challenge some of her most "closeted" guy friends to open up, dive deep, get spicy, and unpack emotions -- all in the name of being raw, real, and intimate. The rules of the game are simple. Simone picks a "sweet" / thought provoking card OR Simone picks a "spicy" / XXX-rated card and each guest has to answer it truthfully. On this week's episode, her two friends Don & Roach didn't back down from the challenge.

    Condoms are a form of PPE. Please use them accordingly. via Simone gets under the covers with Orlando, Tati & Jason as they unveil everything running successful sex-based businesses (like a condom company and an OnlyFans account), being vocal with your partners in the bedroom, amplifying your femininity, dismantling toxic masculinity, using protection (or the lack thereof) during "sneaky links", dating during quarantine, their freakiest kinks and encounters, and so much more.

    B Condoms (the ONLY black-owned company in the U.S.) is giving our listeners a SPECIAL DISCOUNT CODE! Use our code BBD and save 30% while you support black business and purchase your next pack of condoms from www.bcondoms.com.
