In this week’s episode Liz and Stephanie discuss (sadly without Duchess, womp womp) about the use of virgins in romance novels.

Dick of the Week: Burning Rage: Or Why We Hate “Trashy”

Listen to us rant about this topic, while still cracking each other up, because we don’t know how to not laugh a lot.

Dick of the Week Episode 5: Bare Chested Men; Hair Optional

In the 5th installment of Dick of the Week, the ladies discuss who their ideal hunky heroes are (spoilers: they all have beautiful hair and strong arms) before discussing the one aspect of a book everyone is quick to judge: the cover. Stephanie, Duchess, and Liz dive into what they find attractive in a book cover and what makes them say “no thanks” to a book among a genre that tends to rely on hard abs and seductive looks.

Dick of the Week Episode 4: Hot Tasty Treats & Happy Ever Afters

Romance is officially defined as having a central love story and an optimistic and uplifting ending, however the gals at Love & Lust wanted to dive deeper into that definition and question it. Does every single romance novel really need a happy ending? Spoilers: we don’t all agree with each other on this topic BUT we have plenty of giggles and fun discussing it.
