Lenny and Lynsey get personal about beauty standards as they’re applied to female-identified folks in America—including themselves. They also discuss how modern beauty is tied to colonization, how whiteness came to be considered supremely beautiful, and the lengths people have gone to in different times and cultures in order to be considered beautiful…whatever that means.

Monogamy is not the only option for romantic relationships, folks! Lenny and Lynsey start the second season of Hourgasm by breaking down what ethical non-monogamy means to them, why it makes sense for many human beings, how it was forced on indigenous groups by colonizing forces, and why Pagans are so horny for polyamory.

First of all, we cannot spell or pronounce this word. Secondly, it's a really difficult concept to pin down. We talk about what it meant for some groups in pre-colonial America, what it means now, and how it’s impossible to hit this moving target that’s defined more by what it’s not than what it is. Plus, we spend a lot of time giving lovey eyes to feminine icons Dolly Parton and Morticia Addams. Because, seriously.

Lenny and Lynsey dig into the way marriage functions as a means of population control, from time immemorial up through the Dawes Act of 1887, the post–World War II push toward nuclear families and suburban living, and the expectations we live with today. Why is marriage so damn important in our culture, and why did it get that way? And how do our cohosts feel about this institution of acceptability? (Hint: Not great.)

Queers in Comics with Charley Macorn
The voice of your generation, Charley Macorn, joins us for a long look into the history of queer representation—or lack thereof—in the American comic book industry. From "Seduction of the Innocent" to the comics code of conduct to the subversive machinations of Wonder Woman to sneaking queer representation into stories by way of villains who broke the rules about gender expression to the visionaries who started blowing up the tried and true limitations in the industry, this episode is very gay...but in the bad way.

Political Sex Scandals (Part 1)
Politicians seem like they’re always getting themselves into compromising situations and then into the headlines. But why do we care so much? And what should we expect out of politicians? How are women thrown under the bus for male politicians’ foibles? And what are some examples of female politicians who had their own sex scandals?

Horror Film and Gender
Horror films are a conundrum. They’re both deeply subversive and highly problematic. They rely on gender stereotypes and sexist tropes, but they also allow women and queer characters to take the upper hand in ground-breaking ways. What gives, and how do these films work for or against colonialism? Lenny and Lynsey have thoughts.
