From Dirty Talk to the A to Z of Sex Toys, Poppy and Rubina confess all the funny and intimate details of their sex lives. A South Asian woman still can’t talk openly about her sex life, but Poppy and Rubina are determined to change that, beginning with their own experiences.

In this new series of Brown Girls Do It Too, Poppy is continuing on her exploration of non-monogamous dating and Rubina is navigating sex and love as a (relatively) new mother.
They continue to break taboos and ask difficult questions such as “Has BDSM become passé?” “Are younger men better in bed?”, or “Is the baby monitor the ultimate mood killer?”.
Brown Girls Do it Too is a raucous celebration of sex, love, heartbreak and friendship.

Fun. Sexy. Almost feminist.

Reminds me of chatting about sex with my friends. Mixed bag when it comes to gender equity. I wish they would use the opportunity to unpack some of the sexist expectations and stereotypes discussed on the show. I hope they come back with a Version 2.0 to explore sexuality through a feminist lens.

Super bummed

I don’t think I can listen to you guys anymore which is so sad, the guest can barely ever get a word in edge wise. Everyone just talks over each other and it’s impossible to get one thought out. I love your show, love your content, but it would be an absolutely AMAZING show if you could slow down and let other people finish a sentence.
