whormonespodcasttwitterbackground In this episode of Whormones, we, Alia and Jaqi discuss a few articles about cheating, arranged marriages, and Tinder. We start out with an oddly placed article in the Yahoo business section, which states that the French do not care about cheating. As Jaqi points out, this is one of those articles that takes the information it wants from other sources and manipulates it to make a completely different point. The article also points out that most French flower shops have signs that say, "Don't forget your mistress!" Considering the placement of the article, our guess is someone is either planning ahead, or trying to point out some "facts" in a troublesome relationship.

One of the articles taken out of context was an article from comedian, Aziz Ansari found in Time magazine titled, "Everything You Knew About Love is Wrong." In Ansari's article he talks about how the internet is changing the dating and love. He describes his parents marriage, which was an arranged marriage. He compares how his Father picked his mother to be his life partner in a half hour time because she was tall; and the thorough steps he takes to find a restaurant to only end up eating a peanut butter and banana sandwich. We discuss how we're not fans of arranged marriages, but understand the point Ansari is trying to make. People have too many choices now.

With online dating and apps such as Tinder people trying to find their "soulmates" think they have a better chance of finding the right one. But with divorce basically at 50% and infidelity being a big percentage of that, are online dating sites and apps like Tinder helping people, or are they only helping people find the idea of what they think they want? Find out we what we think!

 

The Whormones Podcast

 The Whormones podcast is an anti-feminist, feminist podcast where two completely different points of view of sexuality, feminism, and life are discussed. The politically incorrect humor and witty banter featuring Alia Janine’s wilder and more sexually experienced interpretations, and Jaqi Furback’s biting and more conservative demeanor makes these two the modern day odd couple.

For the second episode of the Whormones Podcast we (Alia and Jaqi) discuss the controversial documentary, Hot Girls Wanted, which was produced by actress Rashida Jones. Hot Girls Wanted is a documentary about Florida's "pro-am" (professional amateur) porn industry. We also read some articles that relate to the documentary, and the California and Florida adult film industry scenes. We did this to go further than what the documentary shows and actually means. We discuss what some people in the industry say about it, why the adult industry tends to be so defensive, and what the general public probably thinks about it.

 

Since Alia started out her porn career almost the exact same way as the girls in the documentary, she weighs in pretty heavily about the accuracy of the documentary. Alia drops a lot of information on Jaqi about a few harsh realities of being a new performer, agents, escorting, and even the "model houses." Jaqi gives her point of view of what she thought of the documentary, and asks questions that bring in a different perspective. Jaqi also explains what she knows from her personal experiences, and how it relates to Hot Girls Wanted.

We end the show with Jaqi telling us what she thought about Sex Criminals, and another page is down from, Just the Tips!

Welcome to the first episode of the Whormones Podcast! Jaqi and I are really excited to show you how two people with two completely different opinions work things out, and share their sides of the story with all of you! In this first episode we introduce what the show will be about, as well as some fun games and challenges we’ll be giving each other. We were live on Periscope and you can find that broadcast on our account, @WhormonePodcast.

Jaqi and I dive right into our first topic, which was Bree Olson’s open letter to younger women telling them not to do porn. Jaqi and I discuss our views on society, work, how people treat and see others, and so much more. I also give Jaqi some homework for next week, which includes watching the documentary, “Hot Girls Wanted” and reading Sex Criminals volume 1, by Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky. Hot Girls Wanted is a documentary about the porn scene in Florida and how girls get started in the business. Sex Criminals is amazing, and you’re going to need to find the comic and see for yourself! To close out the show, I have Jaqi read a page from, “Just the Tips” another (awesome) book by Matt and Chip!
