You either like this woman or you don't. She really doesn't add anything to my sexual awareness but when you happen to be 30 minutes into a 60 minute workout on the treadmill she beats CNN. It's about what I learned as a junior in High School but, what the hell, it takes the pain away.
I couldn't disagree more whole-heartedly with one of the other reviewers. Politics and sex don't mix, unless you're Bill Clinton. Try mentioning Iraq, the Senate, or Hillary Clinton while in bed with your significant other and watch the mood wilt like a thawed hotdog. No, people with conservative views aren't "threatened" by the show they just see her "wittiness" as "silliness" bordering on "insanity." While I am on the topic why doesn't Audible offer anything other than Forbes and the Wall Street Journal for conservatives? The rest of the programs stink of Liberal left-wing ideology. I thought the sex show might actually be about sex, not politics, alas I was wrong. Psst... Even conservatives have sex, and good sex at that!
I have subscribed to Susie Bright's show for the past two months and I am hooked. She is witty, warm and informative. Sometimes in the climate that she is working in, its impossible to keep politics out of a show about sex. I appreciate what she has to say. Its not too often I finds something that makes me laugh out loud while learning something too. I think too that she displays a sensitivity to her guests and listeners.
I thought this would be interesting, new and invigorating...unfortunately, this one definitely doesn't "do it" for me nor listening to her lesbian/sexual experiences whenever she can "slip" it in. It's a good thing for me that this was a "trial" subscription. She has interesting guests, but then she opens her mouth...she just ruins all the inteviews and has nothing substantial to say, ask or contribute.
I like this program a lot, I think susie is very entertaining to listen too. I have heard two shows though, one it seems she picked kind of a boring topic, but the other was great. I wouldn't mind seeing her tak a few more letters though, her responses are pretty fun.
In Bed is a very entertaining show on several levels. Ms Bright is an excellent interviewer and her guests are exceptionally informative and funny. Though not a comedy show, the whole program has a great sense of humor and doesnt take itself, or it's varied subjects, as dreadfully serious as more stuffy "sexperts" might. I have either learned something new or laughed out loud during every program, some have caused both reactions. Well worth the time and money.
Susie Bright's weekly show (between 20-45 minutes each week) encourages sexual awareness by giving frank, practical advice. Each week, she either interviews someone or expounds on a topic (usually related to current events), after which she always responds to an Audible listener's email. Not every show is a winner, but on average this is a fantastic show, so give it a chance and listen to more than one show. You might not agree with everything she says, but after listening to her show, you'll be more comfortable with your own sexuality!
I can't wait each week to hear the show. I really like Susie's off the cuff, impromptu style of speaking. She has a great sense of humor and is obviously very intelligent. Her views on sexuality are refreshing to hear, although I can see how someone with conservative political views would be threatened by this program.
Say something about yourself!
This is a really fun show. It is broad ranging in its coverage of topics. Bright has a long history as a sex-positive pro-queer feminist activist, so anyone (like some of the listeners who posted negative, homophobic reviews here) who is surprised that she talks about politics must have his/her head in the sand.
I first heard Susie Bright speak about 14 years ago at a Gay/bi/lesbian event when I was in college and she was a delight. She shocked the identity politics crowd by refusing to be "politically correct." On her show, she is warm, funny, open, bsically all the things you want in the context of sex. And yes, she'll talk about gay stuff, but she's a straight-friendly, non-judgemental character w/lots to say. Don't listen to the haters.
I have never failed to learn from Susie's refreshing and witty comments. She is more in my face than I am normally comfortable with, but she is kind compassionate and caring. What a truly refreshing change to embrase a topic you may be uncomfortable with, with such a caring compassionate person. She is a credit to her profession and a wonderful resource for ferrett and the laid back old dog. Her laugh and sense of humor are contagious. She truly is an American treasure.
