Abstract

Abstract I review the observational properties of SW Sex stars. I show that they can be explained by an accretion stream overflowing the disc, combined with an accretion disc wind. I suggest that SW Sex behaviour is caused by episodes of very high mass transfer, which are balanced by VY Scl low states.
