Oh wow this is the episode we've been waiting for....

fir anyone wondering I'm pretty sure Nicole's friend who hosts a party orgy thing is Big Dipper and the party name is drain your nut. I'm p sure he'd be fine with giving it a shout-out he's talking about it constantly on sloppy seconds (his pod with meatball, they've had Nicole on as a guest on 3 episodes i believe. if you're a gay or an ally go listen.)

This was a bad episode, purely because of whoever this awful guest was. Saying stupid stuff then repeatedly saying "I'm just joking" gets old really fast. And referring to hurt women as "used cars", making him the nice guy in that situation...ew. Well done Nicole for trying to make points out of this man's absolute bs.

It’s kinda ironic how Nicole who experienced poverty still shames it and uses it as a leverage against men (as their weight too) but god forbids anyone says anything about her being black or loud or unfunny. I guess we get the answer to the question why won’t date me? Stop being a spoiled princess. Grow up. Unsub.

Yikes. Love Nicole. Glad to know another guest is a nope irl.

Bianca's arguments sound really logical, until you remember she jokes about someone being r*ped. That's not a case of "this joke just isn't for you", it's just not ok. If you're annoyed about "cancel culture" it's probably because you know you've done something really wrong.

This guy mansplained a lot at Nicole & had nothing funny to say. I feel sad for his girlfriend, but at least she gets Sundays off.

Nikki’s diatribe in this episode is so deeply and thoroughly problematic.

I can't even finish this episode. Nikki Glaser sounds like a complete idiot with that ancient patriarchal heteronormative monogamy-centric bullshit. I love you Nicole, but this ep is a hard pass for me.

I would love to take you out to your restaurant of choice for a feast and fuck. You order whatever you like, and as the waiter brings the first dish, I slide under the table and start nibbling at your toes. As the next coarse comes by, i work my way towards your crevice, licking and teasing until you slam your fists apon the table. As you finish your main coarse i emerge from below and vigorously swipe the empty plates and glasses onto the floor in a dastardly display, and fling your voluptuous temple onto the table, digging deep into you. As we grind and sweat you can feel the sensation building and building like a bubbling champagne bottle about to burst! And in one final clentching rush of blood and skin and pure ecstacy you scream, "check please!!!"
