Popular Twitch streamer Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys is no stranger to awkward interactions with thirsty fans, who sometimes cross major personal boundaries – and thus, decided to share her personal insight on how to woo women.

Pokimane was playing a dating simulator during a broadcast on July 25 when she encountered a dialogue option for her male character, which read, “Relate it to the business between her legs.”

Unsurprisingly, the streamer found this comment to be less than appropriate, explaining to her male viewers exactly how they should speak to women whom they are interested in romantically pursuing.

Pokimane, InstagramPokimane is one of Twitch’s top female content creators, boasting over three million subscribers on the platform – which, unfortunately, invites some unwanted attention, at times.

“Anyone who actually makes a joke like this… when just meeting someone, has no business between their ears,” she said. “Like, no brain. DO NOT show her that you’re squadW. You can’t!”

That wasn’t the end of Pokimane’s tirade: she went on to give further context for her advice, falling into a hilarious tirade about certain moments when romantic partners might actually want to be disrespected.

“[Women] want to be respected,” she continued. “And sometimes, they want to feel disrespected, but only in the specific circumstances of the bedroom, and that is after they present that idea.”

Pokimane’s past encounters

This wouldn’t be the first time Pokimane has given advice to less-than-savory suitors, either: the Twitch star delivered a contrastingly serious message to “gross” viewers during a broadcast in early May, after receiving an influx of inappropriate messages and comments.

“I know what you said in that other girl’s chat,” Pokimane said of comments toward her Twitch doppelganger. “…I saw it, that’s rude. And I know what you did last night, that’s just gross. That’s not even rude. That’s just gross. Stop it.”

In fact, Anys has been the brunt of a slew of disturbing interactions with fans, even claiming that one critic has harassed her for nearly four years by sending her sexist insults via email.

While Pokimane generally manages to turn these toxic situations into positive moments, the streamer is humorously using her platform for a good cause, thanks to her hilarious advice toward male Twitch viewers as seen during her dating sim stream.

Conor McGregor explains why YouTube boxing is “good business” for the sport

Jake Paul and Logan Paul helped popularize ‘YouTube Boxing’ in recent years, although it’s often described as a mockery of the sport. However, Conor McGregor explained why he isn’t against it and thinks it’s good business.

Conor McGregor has been focused on his upcoming UFC 257 bout against Dustin Poirier for a while now. However, that hasn’t stopped Jake Paul from doing his best to rope the former double champion into an exhibition boxing match.

Jake first called him out back in November 2020 after he knocked out Nate Robinson. Then, he taunted him to accept a $50 million fight offer several weeks later and has been flailing about ever since. 

He still hasn’t managed to get his attention. However, his antics did draw out comments from UFC President Dana White and Conor’s coach, John Kavanagh. Now, Conor has finally shared his thoughts on YouTube boxing as a whole, and here’s what he had to say.

Jake Paul has tried and failed to bait a response from Conor McGregor.

“A lot of people are criticizing [YouTube boxing] as maybe making a bit of a mockery of fighting,” asked an interviewer. It’s the predominant view among fans of combat sports. “I want you to weigh in on that for me.” 

“If they are fighting, well, then it can’t make a mockery of fighting, right?” said Conor. “They’re getting in, and they’re competing. I am not so much against it. The YouTube kid and the NBA star competing [was] good business.

“Am I into those competitions myself? It’s not the most high level if any level… [but] as they say if it makes dollars, it makes sense,” he added. “I know Dana and the UFC are not really into it, but… I’m not so against it. I think if people are willing to get in and take the risk of making that walk, I am certainly a viewer.”

Conor’s opinion might come as a surprise to fans who expected him to make scathing comments. However, as a businessman himself, it seems like he’s all for it. Plus, as he said, YouTube boxers are still fighting and giving it their all.

On another note, Conor didn’t seem too incensed about Jake. He barely mentioned him at all. 

Still, it’s only a matter of time before Jake responds, and there’s no doubt he won’t be too thrilled about being referred to as “the YouTube kid.”
