Publisher's Summary

Susie has a special guest on the show today. She's talking with author Jessica Valenti about her new book The Purity Myth: How America's Obsession with Virginity is Hurting Young Women. Susie and Jessica ponder why chastity has made such a big comeback. They also discuss everyone's preoccupation that promiscuity equals slutiness and virginity warrants self-righteousness. Their conversation also touches on teaching young people about sex. How do you talk to a teenager who doesn't believe in abstinence yet still wants to hold onto the virginity label? The "just say no" folks have once again really screwed things up.

Then, in the Try This at Home mailbag, Susie answers a letter from a listener who may not be so sincere. Susie suspects she's being set up by a man who asks, "Please help me, I want to be 'taught' how to not objectify women."

You can call with your question to Susie's hotline at 831-480-5110. You can send your confidential questions - plus requests for free samples and blog banners! - to susie@susiebright.com. (Episode 388, May 15, 2009)
