Episode 9

Differences Between Dating Men & Women

In this episode of The Lipsticks Podcast, we decided to dial back the serious chat and talk all about the differences between dating men and women! We’ve gone for some tongue-in-cheek stereotypical pros and cons of dating both.

Our news topic up for discussion this week is inspired by a tweet which recently went viral and resurfaced an old news story from way back in 2017…BARBIE HAS A GIRLFRIEND?! Whether everyone’s favourite blonde icon is gay or an ally, either way, we are here for it 👏

Another gay made-up word enters our Gay Glossary and we also give a big shout out to an unsigned, super cool indie rock band called Breakfast With Bears. They are based in London and are fronted by one of Jess’s good friends, and favourite gays!

Spoiler alert! This podcast may contact traces of giggling, northern accents, sarcasm and gay references.

Ey up 👋

My name is Jess and I co-host The Lipsticks podcast. Incase you were wondering, I am attracted to men and women. Bi-five, anyone?

I'm a proud Yorkshire lass who loves the countryside and a brew. I'm also fond of books, music, pasta, travelling, whiskey and writing (not necessarily in that order!)

Thanks to my background in Journalism, I'm used to being the one who gets to ask the questions, not answer them! So this should be interesting...

Hello! What do I say about myself? Never know what to write on these things, here goes nothing...

So, my name is Sarah and I am one of the co-hosts of this podcast! I also co host another podcast, called SEO SAS - for anyone who enjoys SEO?

Anyway, I would identify myself as a lesbian and I suppose would say I was late to the 'gay game' - so to speak. I didn't realise I was gay until I was around 23, wasted time at Uni I know!

I enjoy discussing all things LGBTQ+ and just chatting in general to be honest. Apart from that I enjoy all the normal things like coffee, gin, travel, live music, going on walks... sounding like my Tinder profile, so I am gonna stop!
