"Not what I expected"
Susie Bright is the fearless boundary crosser of contemporary erotica, and The Best American Erotica 2005 features stories of unprecedented literary pedigree and a stunning breadth of imagination.
Susie Bright, founder of Best American Erotica, presents a classic, taboo-breaking collection of men’s erotic fiction - featuring the most unrepentant gay literary heroes of our generation. Legendary writers like John Preston, Samuel Delany, Steven Saylor/Aaron Travis, Lars Eighner, Dennis Cooper - who can imagine men’s intimate and transgressive lives without them?
Some of the smartest erotic stories in the world just happen to be written by lesbians, women who changed the face of erotic lit. Susie Bright presents a collection of lesbian sex lives that speak fearlessly, through every taboo, without any apologies. Writers like Dorothy Allison, Lisa Montanarelli, Greta Christina, and Peggy Munson name names, get as close to any woman as they dare, and relish every deep stroke of their erotic pens….
"Delivers Exactly What Was Promised!"
Susie looks into to a story from The New York Times about friends who become lovers. Can friends go from being buddies to lovers without stress? Research says this phenomenon is called "friends with benefits", and it has many risks.
The Best American Erotica 1995 is the ideal collection for all lovers of first-rate erotic literature. Edited by Susie Bright, whom the Utne Reader calls "one of the leading thinkers and visionaries of our time", this third annual edition of a best-selling series brings together the most outstanding erotic writing of the year.
Here at In Bed, we delight in bringing you conversations about sex that you won't hear anywhere else. Today, Susie finds a topic that will get us all thinking about orgasm differently. How does a transgendered woman deal with her new vaginal orgasm versus the past penis pleasuring?
If you've ever wondered if being a sexual swinger is for you, this show is a must listen. This week, Susie interviews award-winning author, columnist, editor, and sex educator Tristan Taormino, and the topic of conversation is open relationships and how you make them work. Susie gets Tristan to reveal the juiciest parts of her new book Opening Up: A Guide to Creating and Sustaining Open Relationships.
Get ready to meet your fellow In Bed devotees! Today's show features the first in a series of listener interviews. Susie asked who would be willing to tell their sex stories, and many of you accepted the challenge. Susie and listener "Lucy" speak about deeply intimate, personal sex acts, fantasies, and anal sex. This is HOT!
Susie takes a look back at the top sex stories of 2007. The year was filled with sex freaks, drugs, and gay fetishes - and that was just the Republicans in the U.S. Senate and state legislatures. Susie predicts the gay infrastructure of government will soon be exposed. Other sex headlines Susie examines concern infertility and why it's such a huge business, abstinence education's complete failure, gay marriage's homophobic laws, and Viagra and future female sex-enhancement drugs.
It's Part 2 of our annual look at the top sex stories of 2010. This week we continue to look at the headlines that made a sexual splash....
Today's show features a lot of talk about anal sex. Doesn't that sound sexy, raunchy, and good? But first Susie starts out looking at a new audiobook that's an erotic classic: The Marketplace by Laura Antoniou. Susie loves this book! The story is kind of a mash-up: The Story of O meets the smart girl who's into BDSM. This is going to get hot! Next, it's another edition of “Tell Me Your Sex Story”, in which we invite a “regular folks” listener into Susie's sexual confession booth to tell all about her or his sex life....
Prepare to enter an erogenous zone. In The Best American Erotica 2002, Jane Smiley illustrates the singular escapism found in the gentlest caress, Maggie Estep relates the surprising sexual happenings in a detox clinic, Francesca Lia Block explores the aquatic fantasies haunting a surfer, and Ernie Conrick introduces a tennis star and sex symbol who surrenders to an unusual coach.
There's a Republican state legislator from South Dakota who wants to warn everyone about the dangers of anal sex. "Gay sex is not good for the mind or the body," he says. And he's looking for doctors to back him up. Ha! says Susie. Our lawmaker goes on to say that doctors are discouraged and intimated when it comes to telling the truth about anal sex. This makes Susie wonder if everyone has been intimated into silence when it comes to this issue.
Susie is off this week but wants you to enjoy a show from 2011. Today's show takes a quick look at why and how sex education has evolved in the United States. Susie reads from a Newsweek article on the subject by Johanna Cornblatt. Going back to the 1800s, we see the same worries about "evil" sex and plans to control the young, just like today's abstinence-only sex-ed. The article is full of strange and fun historical facts that warn about syphilis, prostitutes, the 1960s sexual revolution, and HIV/AIDS.
In The Best American Erotica 2004, Broadway superstar Alan Cumming tells of the deep knowing offered by one stranger to another after casual sex; in science-fiction hotshot Geoffrey Landis' bawdy fairy tale, we learn about the very first penis; Touré's breathless prose poem sets us up with an evening's worth of erotic visitors; and in Jerry Stahl's story, a man recalls his boyhood fascination with his mother's friends and their elaborate undergarments.
Susie is off this week but will return with a sexy new episode next time. She wanted you to listen again to her 2007 interview with legendary women's masturbation teacher and author Betty Dodson. This 78-year-old is not afraid to tell it like it is and first made headlines back in 1974 with her book Liberating Masturbation. Susie and Betty discuss the G-Spot, intergenerational sex, and talking to your mother about her clitoris!
Have you ever had a G-spot orgasm? Or maybe you've helped your partner find her G-spot? This erogenous female zone has perplexed many, and now some British researchers are claiming the spot is nonexistent. Susie says, "Give me a break!" The story was posted recently on The Daily Beast blog, and many sexperts are refuting this new study. Susie talks about why the G-spot is so controversial in the first place - and why money is being spent to make it go away.
"Sliver of quiver"
This just in from the BBC…The Orgasmatron! It is what it sounds like: a small machine that can give you endless pleasure. So why don't we all have one? Susie takes a look at the story, the device, and the doctor who invented it. The gadget, which gets wired to the spine, was developed for helping people with chronic pain, but some patients experienced intense sexual stimulation while they were hooked up. Wow, what a way to get rid of all those horrible aches and pains!
On today's show, you'll meet a transgendered listener in our "Tell Me Your Sex Story" segment. Susie and "Allie" talk about what it was like growing up as a male and then transitioning to female. This very frank discussion covers how her orgasms changed when she went from penis to clit, how her libido disappeared during hormone-replacement therapy, and what it was like to feel sexual as she changed genders.
Can we ever have too much sex? Can we ever love someone too much? On today's show, Susie discusses the difference between healthy and addictive love. She speaks with author Rachel Resnick about her book Love Junkie: A Memoir, which lists three red flags that may indicate someone is a love addict. Do you have one destructive relationship after another? When you fall in love, do you let all the other parts of your life go to hell? Do your relationships ruin your wallet, your friends, and your own peace of mind? Yikes, everyone can learn something from this discussion.
Susie is off this week,but has a great encore show for you. She speaks with sex educator Cory Silverberg about his new book for kids: What Makes a Baby? Susie says this is a must-have for every sex-positive family. Cory's book discusses the "where do we come from" question, and he doesn't give the usual mom-and-dad or bible story. Susie and Cory talk about why most kids' books take the sugary syrupy approach to talking about sex, and they look at what kinds of families are ready for early sex education.
It's an outdated notion that only men will pay to have sex. What has changed in the past decade that makes more women okay with paying for escorts and sexual encounters? Susie will shed some light on the "why" as she reads from an article in the Sydney Herald. Written by Matty Silver, the story uncovers the many reasons, ranging from career women wanting privacy about their sex lives, to others simply wanting an arranged tryst rather then meeting someone at a bar. Go, women, go!
Today Susie speaks with legendary author Walter Mosley. His new book Debbie Doesn't Do It Anymore is about a woman who's had it with the porn industry. Mosley may be best known for his best-selling mystery series featuring Easy Rawlins. Susie asks Walter about how he researched this book and how he knows about porn. They also talk about exploitation, black identity, sex work, writing for Hollywood, "sexistential" novels, and how to stay young as you get old.
Today's show is an homage to Christian Mann, an erotic-film producer who was a mentor to Susie and the producer of Edward PenisHands, the best porn parody ever! Christian was a second-generation sex-film entrepreneur. His father, Kurt Mann, created the first wrestling mags, nudie mags, and stag-film productions. Like his father, Christian went on to innovate in the adult-entertainment business around multi-cultural and black sex movies. Susie and Christian were friends, and Susie has many fun stories and memories to share with you.
On today's show, Susie interviews Anne Elizabeth Moore about her investigation of prostitutes and NGOs in Cambodia. There's more than one con game afoot. Susie has been following Anne's blog Truth Out, where she and Leela Corman have profiled, in comic-strip form, the problems of women in Cambodia. Susie and Anne talk about the "culture of quiet": NGO's discouraging of women from sharing their stories, because that causes shame.
This show starts with gay sex and HIV, then turns to masturbation with kitchen tools, and winds up with where you can hear famous porn-star interviews. Susie begins the show by reading an article about a young, gay wresting star who became an HIV scapegoat. Written by Steven Thrasher for BuzzFeed, it's a story about a college kid who has lots of consensual, unprotected sex with other guys. Why does he become the scapegoat? He's black, and the white guys say he told them he was clean (no HIV), and he wasn't.
You've heard of Anaïs Nin, the free-spirited feminist intellectual, but have you heard of Bern Porter? Susie starts of today's show with a look at one man's wild recounting of his supposedly wild sex life with Nin.
Susie has found a very sweet and funny article about what really happens at summer camps. Written by Maureen O'Connor for New York magazine's thecut.com, the story includes 10 memoirs from teenagers about their sexual awakenings while away at camp. There are fake orgasms, shared showers, and time spent with older (and hornier) camp counselors. One story recounts riding horses and really enjoying the up-and-down motion. Another describes naked swimming in a pond....
Today, Susie has an interview with Eric Schaefer, author of Sex Scene: Media and the Sexual Revolution. Professor Schaefer teaches at Emerson College in the Visual and Media Arts Department. His new book looks at exploitation and sexploitation within films, tabloids, novels, and audio recordings. Chapters include "Wet Dreams", "Porn Goes to College", "Beefcake to Hardcore", and "33 1/3 Sexual Revolutions Per Minute", to name a few. Susie and Eric discuss the origins of X ratings, Jane Fonda's movie orgasms, Swedish erotica, Russ Myer's nudies, and more.
Included in this collection: "Rubenesque" by Magenta Michaels; "Brian's Bedroom" by Leigh Rutledge; "Serenade for Female with Fantasies" by Anne Marie Mardith; "Why" by Bob Flanagan; "Milk" by Michael Dorsey; and more.

Offbeat and sexy, Bright defends Madonna, attacks Dr. Ruth, and is snubbed by Camille Paglia herself in this rather amazing and outspoken collection.

"the voice acting was not mood setting"

Flasher is the story of a one-time hippie love pirate, slum goddess, a Ruby Tuesday of the '60's who mutated into a blossoming writer on the Lower East Side art scenes in 1990's. When our feminist Bukowski meets a sculptor who designs fetishwear at a New Years Day party, her life changes and becomes a consideration of the values and costs of love and friendship, sexual freedom (is there such a thing?), and the importance of family - real and inherited.
