In this raunchy comedy, we enter a world of foolproof seduction techniques that could only be culled from that most insightful of individuals: the gay man. More…

The English Department is holding its monthly meet the authors event. Robyn is the shy and studious moderator of the event and this month's featured author is Dan Anderson of Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man. Thwarting Robyn's attempts to moderate a scholarly discussion of the book, Dan aims to entertain those in attendance with a highly theatrical, audience-interactive sex tip seminar.

See it if you like low comedy, gay humor and muscle bodies, women practicing empowerment and common sense, gay best friends, depictions of horniness

Don't see it if you don't like very slight shows, you're not going with a bunch of girlfriends, don't believe in gay BFF's, don't like sex or gay humor

See it if you're having a bachelorette party or girls' night out. It's perfect for that more than a night at the theater.

Don't see it if you need more content & less filler in your theater-going adventures. This is 70 minutes of perfectly pleasant silliness, but not much else.

Don't see it if You are not comfortable talking and hearing about things of a sexual nature. Don't see if you don't like to laugh. I laughed so much.

Witty / funny, Party atmosphere, Dated, Raunchy, Cliched

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.

Also Beware: big-time bachelorette event.... Read more Read less

"“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.

"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 educatio...
