2x9: On All Fours recap: The episode begins and Natalya brings Adam to her house, after a movie, and tells him she is ready to have sex now. They climb on to the bed and begin making out. Before they are about to have sex, Natalya tells him the things she likes and doesn’t like during sex. Hanna arrives at David’s office and they discuss the book she is writing for him. He says what she has written, so far, isn’t very impressive and he wants something that has more sexual content in it. She says she had sex with a teenager last month and could write about that. David says that’s a great idea and mentions that’s the kind of stuff he wants. He suggests she make up stuff, if she has to, and they can turn it into a novel... read more.

2x5: One Man's Trash recap: The episode begins with Hanna and Ray discussing a new expression called “sexit” that Hanna has coined. A man comes to the café and says he lives nearby. He says he is there to complain that someone is leaving the café’s trash in his cans. Ray says it’s odd because the café has its own dumpster. He asks the man how he is so convinced it’s the café’s trash. He explains there are coffee grounds, old boxes of pastries and “some bills with your address on them”, which indicates it’s the café’s trash. The guy is adamant that he doesn’t want the café’s trash thrown in his cans. Ray says he can’t help as he doesn’t know who is doing it... read more.

Later Hanna tells the girls she is going to do some cocaine and write about the experience.
