This week on Tomboy Tirade, Joanna, Persis and Raven visit the largest sex shop in Tokyo. Things get out of hand when Persis and Raven can’t keep their hands to themselves. The Dazed and Convicted host and mannequin sex doll, Monica Hamburg, is there to save the day but the Tirade crew realises too late that there is a ghastly price to pay.
What happens when you let loose Persis and Raven in the largest sex toy shop in Tokyo? As Joanna finds out, it is equivalent to unleashing a classroom full of sugar-addicted kids in a candy store. It doesn’t take long before Persis and Raven get into trouble and set the shop alarm off. Luckily the Dazed and Convicted: Craigslost host and now mannequin sex doll Monica Hamburg turns up to save the Tirade crew from being whooped on their asses by the security.
But they soon find out that Monica has her own agenda to turn herself back into a human being and a worse fate lies ahead for this wacky Tirade crew.
Can they escape the clutches of demonic voodoo sex dolls? Listen to find out as we discuss llamas, Japanese sex shops, Hungarian mothers and Craigslist in this high octane disaster of comedic proportions.

2. NEWS HIGHLIGHTS
It’s a heyday for the newspaper editors everywhere when a Meerkat Expert is Cleared of Assaulting Monkey Handler With a Wine Glass at London Zoo Christmas Party Catfight Over The Man Who Looks After the Llamas. The honour went to The Daily Mail with the above epic headline. From real llamas to a man who might look like a llama, Donald Trump is the Republican frontrunner for the presidential nomination. There is an increasingly possibility that he may just become next become the next president of the USA or the next llama of the USA. A lot of Americans aren’t too happy about this. In a recent poll by VOX, 28% of voters might consider leaving the US.if Donald Trump becomes a president. With a newly elected debonaire Prime Minister who hugs pandas, Canada is looking like an increasingly attractive option and it might be time to give into the American time-honoured tradition of threatening to leave for Canada during a presidential election. Monica gives her take on how her country would cope with this influx of American refugees.
3. TOMBOY TIRADE READS THE CRAIGSLIST
The Tirade crew, Joanna, Persis, and Raven take turns to read the Craigslists, with Monica as a judge. Joanna is mystified by a detective who has a 50% success rate and takes barter trade instead of money, Raven takes on the job scope for the intern of the year and Persis attempts a hopelessly bad French accent for an ad that is looking for a nude French tutor. Who will read it the best?
