To describe this week’s episode, we turn to an article in Vox.com: the writers explaining ‘Big Dick Energy’ as “…the self-confidence to know that a colossal endowment isn’t a measurement of one’s value.

And in fact, perhaps the epitome of BDE is the complete security of not needing other people’s benchmarks — wealth, intelligence, beauty, or a BD — to know one’s own worth.” Confused? Maureen and Heather will fill in the gaps…
