    By: Ric Drasin

    As the conversation continues, it's mutually agreed upon that it's fine to sweat in the gym - for either sex, but, not too much.

  • Ric's Corner: Sweat In Gyms Part 1.

    By: Ric Drasin

Ric's primary uncensored advice - hand washing to prevent bacteria from spreading, and fast-thinking fist bumps over handshakes (invented for that very purpose). Noella is shocked to hear about water fountain habits, but questions men's perspective of sweaty women.
