In this week's quickie, the ladies decide to make an infomercial for Tamu's re-virginization auction.
This week,the ladies get their massively multiplayer online role playing gaming on in Brenna Aubrey's At Any Price. They explore online virginity auctions, the importance of calling home, and why, sometimes, it is okay to take a kick-ass apartment for $250.
They learn a lot about dragon dildos (it's a real thing!) and the accouterments that can accompany them. Tamu decides she is not down with the "cum lube" and has a visceral reaction the the female protagonist in this book.
Mallory dials up the wisdom with her Golden Rule: Communicate with your partner and also wear a condom. Meanwhile, Tamu tries to figure out how much she could get if she auctioned off her re-virginity (HINT: Not much!).
Finally, Mallory has yet another epic bout of wisdom dropping when she determines that in order to find true love, you have to be the worst.

This week, the ladies finally get their primal howl on in Vella Day's Training Their Mate. They learn that incest is bad, but it feels so good; killing a werewolf requires more than just a silver bullet; and, not only is Liz the worst vigilante ever, but The Pack are truly not good at their jobs either.
Mallory revisits her rule/rant about running away from danger. She also doesn't believe werewolves can't contract STDs. Meanwhile, Tamu practices her lower lip biting date face and confesses that she wanted to be a DJ.
They both discuss whether is it worth training your sex orifices to tackle larger members because Tru Luv; Mallory shows her support for vag training, etc. So don't give up ladies! Just keep trying!
Also, new products were born again! Mallory is fluent in elvish! We love Florida!

A question from Ben! Do the ladies feel aroused while reading these books?
This week the ladies climb the beanstalk of time travel in Tracy Cooper-Posey's vampire romance Bannockburn Binding. They learn that you should always get a solid eight hours of sleep before time jumps -- or else you die a horrible death. They also learn that 14th century saddle ring oil can be a useful lubricant for other orifices, what a high-risk vampire pregnancy looks like, and that Tally is the worst time traveler ever!
They explore the logistics of being telepathic when you are no longer a vampire and try to figure out how it is possible to bring all of the modern creature comforts of the 23rd century into the home in the 14th century without it causing some timeline issues. Did we also mention that there was no vampire bites or anything typical of a vampire book?
Mallory is enjoying the thrills and bite marks of puppy motherhood, which means she is too tired for rants this week. Instead, she shares what her super power would be -- Tamu does not think it is that super.

This week the ladies, along with gusband Ben and superfan/gusband Jim, strip down and lotion up for Lexi Post's, Cruise into Eden. They learn that Emily Dickinson was busy creating all male, all nude planets with no sexually transmitted diseases, pheromones are real, how to land a man in three seconds, and that sperm burns.
In their very first episode with guests, the laughter is plentiful and there was so much learned -- mainly about Jim. He explains how watery sperm reminds him of powdered milk. Meanwhile the group tries to determine whether sperm can actually whiten teeth.
Thanks to Urban Dictionary, Ben learns what truffle butter is and is not impressed. Even though Mallory remains fascinated by all of Jim's sexcapades, that does not stop her from getting in a rant or two.
Starbursts are now yet another item that with never be the same for Tamu. Everyone gets in a snicker and snort when Jim offers to become penpals with any listeners who own an iPod Touch in 2017.

It is left up to interpretation, but the ladies want them to run all the worlds.
The ladies explore the world of medieval dragons living in modern times in Terry Bolryder's Onyx Dragon. They learn that dragons are nothing if not brave; shifter wolves are the NYC rats of this universe, and human women are very forgiving if you give them a jillion orgasms.
This is the first podcast since the "Marathon Sessions" recorded in May and the ladies waste no time getting back into the swing of things. Mallory is super excited that the heroine of the story gets hers...over and over...and over. She explains what manspreading is and really shares her love of dragons, Steven Universe, and her Hobbit fanfic idea.
There are not one, not two, but three epic rants by Mallory, ranging from trusting your instincts to how to run away from danger while keeping your breathing under control.
A portion of time is dedicated to theme songs. Mallory shares her song for the summer, while Tamu shares her songs for Mallory's summer.

This week, the ladies, take a trip to Safari Island in Lola Kidd's novella, "Rhino You Love Me." They learn that in the shifter universe ugly shifters need not apply, shifters are woke AF, and Safari Town is a great place to raise a family.
It is the aftermath of the "Marathon Sessions" and the ladies are, shall we say, "tamer". They try to unravel the mystery of how a shifter is created/born; can a bat shifter have a rhino shifter baby? They also try to figure out of mermaid exist in shifter worlds.
Astonishingly this is the first "rant-free" podcast the ladies have done. Instead, they used this time to find a Benedict Cumberbatch name generator which took extra time because Mallory does not know celebrities.

In this week's quickie, the ladies discuss the difficulties of finding diverse romance novels on a budget. They determine it is extremely difficult, but vow to keep searching for the benefit of humanity!
This week, the ladies explore the high stakes world of bank robberies, sheep farming, hostage taking, and menage-a-trois in Annika Martin's "The Hostage Bargain." They learn that sometimes to be free, you have to make yourself a hostage to three bank robbers and have sex with them. They also learn that sometimes when you live hard, you might also have to die hard; and to make sure you choose the right Goddess of origin to fit in with others.
The "Marathon Sessions" continue as does the ladies' tipsiness. Mallory judged a book by it's cover and ended up having a surprising reaction. She is also not a doctor, but she breaks down the action sequence in the book like no other drunkish lady could.
Tamu determines she would be tired after all of the sexual interludes and require many naps along with snacks. She will also NEVER GET IN A HOT TUB. Both ladies agree Twizzlers are a good idea.
