    1. DNF @ 40% (may be more but I don't have my copy in front of me.)My gift to myself for Christmas is relinquishing the expectation that I will finish or enjoy this book. I don't see the issues I have with this book being resolved by finishing it so I'm just not going to put myself through that. I love myself.In short:just listen to the podcast. They cover everything from the book in way more depth, and I feel the conversations that evolve over the course of each episode are far more valuable and n [...]

    2. This is the handbook I want given to college freshmen. Corinne Fisher and Krystyna Hutchinson are here with a stellar collection of essays on sexuality in today's world. The book is broken up into sections: Shame, anatomy, sexy acts, relationships, sex ed, and the serious stuff: Sexual assault and abortion. It's a great guide for a sexual debut.

    3. This book is so important. I highly recommend EVERYONE read it, although there are trigger warnings for discussion of sexual abuse, rape, etc. so please be forewarned.The two women who wrote this are a comedian duo who started a podcast a few years ago called "Guys We Fucked." It began as a an interview podcast, having one person per episode on who one of the girls had had sex with at least once. It's now grown into talking about all things sexual, from talking to a pimp, a person who has been r [...]

    4. As someone who has listened to every episode of Guys We F*cked religiously, I preordered this book immediately. Corinne Fisher and Krystyna Hutchinson have kept me sane on my daily commutes to work, which ranged from last year's 2.5 hours each way to my current 45 minutes each way.This book is definitely targeted toward fans of the GWF podcast. Non-listeners will still be able to follow along with the anecdotes and connections, but would simply not enjoy it as much as listeners.I preferred Kryst [...]

    5. I bought this book after listening to their podcast (and got to listening to their podcast after listening to JRE #1042).This book is a mile-wide, inch-deep version of what I have heard of their podcast. It touches on a variety of subjects, and goes into very little detail of each. I'm not 100% sure, but I think the entire intro to their TED talk (youtube/watch?v=M2-K7) can also be found within the pages of this book.It was a bit painful to push through to the end. Here and there I found myself [...]

    6. I won this ARC in a giveaway. Dang, Corinne Fisher has got a way of putting it all out there! I never heard her podcasts, but now Anyways, after I finished reading this, I showed it to my (adult) daughter who rolled her eyes at me until I read two lines from a middle chapter. She grabbed it and I haven't seen either since! Guess which chapter!

    7. Some very good points, but there are books that go into more depth on the same topics. The podcast is good.

    8. I won this book through a HarperOne giveaway for an unbiased opinion. I've never listened to the Guys We F*ucked podcast (or any podcast for that matter), but I did enjoy this book. I liked that the authors alternated the chapters and included their avatar picture in the beginning of each--it made it easier to follow. I actually learned a few things (I had no clue there were different shaped lady parts!). I'm not big on using curse words to just be provocative, but I understood the purpose of ut [...]

    9. Funny. Sharp. Honest. Mature. This is a much more succinct voice of the women behind Guys We F*cked: The Anti Slut-Shaming Podcast. This is the kind of book that should be mandatory for all teens. And adults. It's smart and sassy without ever feeling patronising. If I could give this book a standing ovation, I would.

    10. This was an easy and quick read. This book is something I think all middle school, high school, and college aged individuals should experience. Shame has always played a big part in the way I view my own sexuality and this book and the podcast really opened my eyes. This is just a small glimpse into the incredibly informative and liberating world of the Guys We Fucked podcast.

    11. Huge fan of the podcast and the book did not disappoint. Since starting to listen to the podcast I've really changed my outlook on many things - how I interact with others, how I treat other women, how much I know about myself, how to own everything I think and feeling. They really are awesome. So happy this book is finally out and really very pleased with their success. Empowering and brilliant women who deserve their place teaching the world to be a better, more positive place.

    12. This book is hilarious and informative. There were some boring parts, but overall it was a quick and interesting read. I recommend listening to their podcast cause it's hilarious as well. They go through their personal experiences with sex and also add in just a bunch of facts with sources. I really enjoyed this and I felt like I learned some things. Their sex lives were actually really interesting and hearing their POVs made me feel a little better about myself lol. Definitely recommend.

    13. For the last four years, New York City-based comedians Corinne and Krystyna have produced the hugely successful weekly podcast "Guys we fucked: the anti-slut shaming podcast", and now these total legends have a wonderful book out. Their aim is to air their sexual laundry in order to explore what it means to be a human in this world who has or explores sex, which of course every one of us is.The topic may be sex, sure, but their podcast is really about human connection and self-esteem (you can't [...]

    14. Corinne Fisher and Krystyna Hutchinson, the voices behind Guys We Fucked: The Anti-Slut Shaming Podcast, have travelled from the podcast to the page with F*cked: Being Sexually Explorative and Self-Confident in a World That’s Screwed. Put down the rom-com and stick the rosé back in the fridge because you don’t need a man, and Fisher and Hutchinson are ready to tell you why.Packed with straight-talking advice and personal stories, the core messages of F*cked are clear and powerful in their s [...]

    15. I have to be honest, I wasn't planning on buying this book before the podcast plea to make that whatever-the-fuck list Krystyna and Corinne wanted to make before they realized it belonged to Oprah. I'd binged on their podcast so hard I was getting really sick of them the way you do when you take a trip with your friends and by the end you want to strangle them because you've been sharing the same oxygen for far too long. But, given their plea and the amount of time they helped pass while I was s [...]

    16. I listened to this on audiobook, which is co-narrated by both the authors and I truly believe that greatly improved my overall experience with this book.I am a huge fan of the Podcast hosted by Fisher and Hutchinson. I think that any sort of feminist or anti-slut shaming content is very important in this time of shaming the idea of expressing sexuality and this listening to this book on audio felt like I was listening to an extended in-depth episode of the podcast that I have grown to love. Fish [...]

    17. BUY THIS BOOK. Female, male, still deciding, doesn't matter. These two comedians extraordinaire have been staples in my listening for the past three years or more and their weekly dose of sex, humour, and all things explicit has gotten me through more than my far share of rollercoaster relationships, hookups, and over a lot of the shame I associated with all that jazz before they stepped on the scene. Their epically hilarious stories of why things happened, how the podcast came to be, and all th [...]

    18. Underwhelming, but expectedly so. Corinne and Krystyna have a lot to say, but much of it has already been said in the podcast, so the book reads as a disjointed scrapbook of recycled material.That said, if I were 10 years younger I may be more inclined to see C & K as bastion's of sexual agency and positivity, but instead I found myself glazing over the unstructured prose. The strength of the podcast is in the variety of guests who would otherwise be overlooked by most mainstream podcasts an [...]

    19. I'm a huge fan of the "Guys We Fucked" podcast, so reading this was a given. I have to say, I wasn't disappointed! The book retains the snarky sense of humor I adore so much with these two, but more importantly, it reinforces so many values I personally believe in. Sex positivity. Lack of shame. Open expression of sexuality, and most importantly, the powerful need for girls/women to be in control of their own sexual and reproductive freedom.Corinne and Krystyna will always get five stars from me [...]

    20. Rating this book is difficult, because there's so much good information here. I think, if I'd read this in my teens or early twenties, it would have been really influential. But I'm not that young anymore, so most of it was not new territory for me. The chapters about shame and communication did still resonate, however. I laughed out loud once or twice while reading. They only lost a star for being a little judgmental about polyamorous relationships, which one of them stated were all about being [...]

    21. As an avid listener of the GWF podcast for the last year or so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this! I have binged on all 4 years of episodes and am finally nearly caught up. Although I may disagree with Corinne and Krystyna on some of their political stances, I really love their no-nonsense views for the most part and really find their perspectives refreshing and have actually learned so much from them. This book is a great read, you can really hear the girls personalities through the narr [...]

    22. We live in a world where sex is ubiquitous, but one thing that is often missing is good advice when it comes to intercourse and sexuality. Corinne Fisher and Krystyna Hutchinson are American comedians, writers, and the hosts of the popular podcast, Guys We F**ked: The Anti Slut-Shaming Podcast. These women receive hundreds of emails with questions from people all over the world about different topics relating to sex. Some great answers can be found in their debut book, F*cked – Being Sexually [...]

    23. First and foremost, do not read this in the middle seat on an airplane. Even if you hide the cover (which says "FUCKED" in neon pink), every other page says "masturbation" or "penis" in bold type. As for content, I thought there were a few eye-opening parts, but nothing as eye-opening as I would have hoped. It's always sort of fun to read about sex, but I felt like a lot of this book was lost on me because I have never listened to the podcast the writers host. I wish I knew more of their two voi [...]

    24. I wish they could make this required reading for all girls at the age where they’re just starting to explore their sexuality. There are so many answers in here to questions or worries I had back then, it’s a perfect resource for the late teens/early 20s. That being said, my crusty old early-30s ass has already figured out pretty much all of what is in this book through my own experience, which I guess is how Corinne and Krystyna did it too, but I was still happy to buy the book to support th [...]

    25. * Listened to the audibook version which was narrated by the authors and was awesome *As I have listened to every single episode of the Guys We Fucked podcast I had heard the majority of the stories that make up the content of this book, and I also knew the majority of the information included, but I still enjoyed it none the less. Corinne and Krystyna did an excellent job at showing their personalities through their writing and I would recommend listening to this on audiobook. As others have sa [...]

    26. Full disclaimer - I've been a loyal listener of the Guys We Fucked podcast for the past few yearsEVER, I truly believe in this book and this message and what Corinne and Krystyna have put out into the universe. This book was the most perfectly put together reference book, self-help book, and sexual encyclopedia I could have asked for. I will be sharing this with every young adult I know, because this is a book full of messages that need to be shared.I can't recommend this enough, and I will cert [...]

    27. I would ideally like to give this 3.5 stars. I enjoyed reading it! It’s a fast read and covers a wide variety of topics. I actually think I would have given it more stars if it went a bit deeper rather than wider in topics. That being said, the writers are true comedians that are breaking down walls of shame related to sex and that is needed! I bought it for one of my good friends for Christmas (and told her not to open it in front of family, just in case). I would recommend it to any of my la [...]

    28. One of the best books I have ever read. When my friend introduced me to the GWF podcast, I thought that changed my life but this book took it to the next level. Corinne and Kyrstyna are so open and honest about things that all of us love, hate, struggle with, and excel at. They are able to put our insane feelings into understandable words and even though I’ve never met them, I feel a deep connection to them and feel that they understand me. This book perfectly conveys what people today need to [...]

    29. Is it ground breaking material? Eh, not really. But it definitely is an eye opening read and a comedically honest insight into the female psyche. It’s probable you might not appreciate or (obviously) relate as much if you’re not a woman, but it’s at least worth one read through; even if you feel like it’s not your cup of tea at the end of the day. There’s a lot of useful information for everyone. I ended up listening to Guys we Fucked podcasts that corresponded with the specific people [...]

    30. Krystyna and Corinne (both comedians and feminists) run a successful podcast called Guys We Fucked: The Anti Slut-shaming Podcast. They continue the fun in this book. They talk about numerous subjects dealing with sex and relationships while keeping a sense of humor about it all. I found it to be intriguing and I love the feminist no shame angle to the book. Some patrons might be put off by the language but if they listen to the podcast, they know what to expect
