Jolie Kerr kicks off the fall season of Ask a Clean Person with a doozy of a topic – sex stains. She’s joined by Maureen O’Connor, New York Magazine’s sex columnist and a contributor at The Cut. In addition to being generally awesome, Maureen, in her Sex Lives column, recently wrote an article entitled “The Complicated Politics of Where to Come” that in many ways was at the crossroads of what she does as a sex columnist and what Jolie does as a cleaning columnist and podcaster. This program was brought to you by Roberta’s.

“The sex stain is essentially what ask a clean person was built on.” [21:00]

“The one thing you don’t want to use on protein stains is bleach. It has a chemical reaction that will cause the stains to look more yellow.” [28:00]

“This is really profound, this realization that sex and messes overlap.” [24:00]
