Susie presents two very different attitudes about sexual mores in today's show. On one side, we're too bored to have anything to do with sex, and on the other, we can't get enough - never say no and have no regrets. Starting off, Susie reads from a recent Op-Ed article in the New York Times from guest contributor Camille Paglia. The reason middle-class Americans aren't having sex, says Paglia, is because Main Street USA has become frigid, androgynous, and sanitized. As Paglia names many more reasons why white-collar workers have become de-sexualized, Susie joins the fray and adds her own take on why people have lost their sexual mojo. Was the 1960s sexual revolution just a passing fancy?
Our second story comes from a listener, via the "Try This at Home" mailbag. Susie reads a letter from a woman who, from a very young age, couldn't say no to sex and surprisingly has no misgivings. She lost her virginity at church youth camp and has kept up a healthy appetite for lots of sex, even now as a mother and wife in her mid 50s. Our heroine has worked hard to undo the guilt she used to feel, because for a time, she felt like a slut. Susie loves to hear about sexual journeys, and this woman tells all.
