Back to a two man show this week as Josh and Lance open up for some hot and sexy Centric Relation talk. You don’t even wanna know how much Lance romances the mandible. Our first advice question this week absolutely stumps the interferences as they are clueless about the Shiggy Challenge…or the Kiki Challenge…or the In My Feelings Challenge….or the In My Fillings Challenge.
