About us

We are Anniki and Lisa, and we want to talk about sex. Sex after a 14-hour day of work and parenting. Sex rather than watching five hours of Breaking Bad. Sex after ten years of being in the same bed as each other. Sex when you're single but none of your friends are. We want to talk about sex without even mentioning penis straws.
