Because they clearly don’t have anything else to argue about, politicians are always fighting over things like ‘family values’, porn, sex workers and sex education.  And how is sex approached in different countries? Is an Irish dildo built and sold under the same regulations as American anal beads?

What am Brexit?

What am Brexit?

Did you hear about Brexit? Maybe you didn't. It was this super underground, low key political movement that got little to no media exposure. Not to worry, a mere two days after publishing their first episode, our boys are back to explain Brexit in their trademark style of endearingly clumsy discourse.
