"“Sex Tips” could have been zingy and smart and actually helpful, like Bravo’s erstwhile reality series “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.” But apparently, that was not the goal here. This show feels like a blend of a bachelorette party at Chippendales and the embarrassing midnight act at a Pigalle tourist trap." Full Review
"What straight woman doesn't want to learn a few handy tricks to make her man happy in bed? And what better person to teach her what a man wants than a sassy gay man! How much you'll actually learn at Sex Tips is questionable, but you won't go to this hysterically titillating show for an education. You'll go because you want to laugh your @ss off." Full Review
"Can we really analyze the sexual and gender politics of a play that includes a striptease starting in an astronaut suit with the song lyrics “I Am Scientist?” Exactly. Murphy is well aware of his audience and is rightfully banking on bounties of bachelorettes and gaggles of gays to fill the seats." Full Review
"Let's not call this a “play”, because it only marginally meets that criteria. "Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man", written by Matt Murphy and directed by Tim Drucker, is part improv, part cabaret, part silliness -- and mostly just a night of fluffy fun." Full Review
"I wish I could say that hilarity ensues, but save for a handful of one-liners and a few well-placed slides, the laughter from the audience sprang mostly from watching their fellow audience members being put through the ringer." Full Review
"The show is geared toward tourists and bachelorette parties, and is not without its charms...It's nothing new, nor does it move much beyond a standard love-story arc delivered within the context of some semi-improved bits involving people being forced to do embarrassing things on stage, but it kept the audience thoroughly entertained."

See it if you're hanging w/few friends & ok w/others drinking & celebrating around you. Grant MacDermott (current "MC") is funny & very quick-witted.
Don't see it if anything raunchy's a turn-off. It's VERY raunchy, bit silly, albeit dated. Could use slight rewrite/update, making it come together better.
See it if you want to laugh out loud to some scandalous material! The "Gay Man" did a great job at playing off the audience and the very drunk group.
