    Brown Girls Do It Too

    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.
