I got a little behind telling you about my latest audio shows, but they're all worth mentioning:
A recent Duke University study found that male monkeys will actually spend juice treats for the chance to look at high-ranking monkeys and female monkey butts. While this behavior may offer some clues for autism, I find it to be a nice window into the more universal motivations. I also wallow in my mailbag with three letters: First, a male listener takes umbrage with some my political leanings... he’s a GOP sexual liberationist. 2nd letter: a man extols his love for the Aneros prostate massager, but I am dubious. Finally, a middle-aged man wants to let it all hang out at a summer sex camp, but is worried he's too old, too vanilla, too small, too single...just not quite what the camp is looking for. I was so amazed he just went anyway, and apparently had an eyeopening time...
(Original Episode 160)
While I was working in LA on Six Feet Under, I wasn't able to get into the studio, so we reached back into her archives to offer one of my most interesting NYC interviews. My guest is sex educator and burlesque performer Ducky Doolittle, a.k.a. Knockers the Clown. Ducky drives me WILD with her stories of cake sitting (part of her act) and talks about her early days working as a sex performer in a Times Square peep show. She is a very Messy Girl, but smarter than most of the clean ones. You can learn more about Ducky Doolittle at her website.
The above photo is of Ducky and my Doggie, Cody. She came to visit me in Santa Cruz, and we never wanted to let her leave!
Finally, I announced the winners of my Valentine's Day contest, on St. Patrick’s Day:
Katie (as in katieskean)
Bella Fica of Figtales
C. S. Lewiston
If you want your prize, please write me an email with your snail mail address, before April 7. Congratulations, you incorrigible lovers.
The main part of my show is paying tribute to my favorite Irishman, friend Hunter S. Thompson, who checked out last month. Among his other traits, Thompson was a rebel WITH a cause and there are few things more erotically attractive. I talk about his life, and how his sexual attitudes struck me when I first met him. I read aloud some of my eulogy, which you might like to hear aloud.
At the end of the show I talk about production suggestions that listeners submitted for the audio recordings of Best American Erotica on Audible. Thank you so much for all your advice; you are a very savvy crew. In my personal mailbag, I give my complicated advice to a listener who wants to choose a sex toy for her boyfriend.
(If you've never heard my show before, you can listen to these shows for free, within the coming week. You get one free month of In Bed, no strings attached!)
