Have you heard about the Christian Evangelicals' "soulgasm"? It's an orgasm that is God-given when you play by all the religious right's rules. Doesn't sex that is sanctioned by the Almighty sound too good to be true? Susie has a lot to say about this and all the contradictions presented by the holier-than-thou crowd. Today's show features an interview with Dagmar Herzog, author of Sex in Crisis: The New Sexual Revolution and the Future of American Politics. Susie and Dagmar discuss right-wing Christians' use of pornographic images to sell their ideas and talk about their strange racy marriage manuals, which encourage mates to do it doggie style - as long as they pray beforehand. Viagra, gay baiting, pre-marital sex, and abstinence programs also get looked at in Herzog's new book.
Then, in the "Try This at Home" mailbag, we hear from an older gentleman who asks, "Is there a point where you just throw in the towel regarding sex?" Susie's response is sure to give us all hope.
