Today, on my In Bed podcast, we look into the politics of AIDS, and why "telling the big lies" is endemic to every funding and policy opportunity.
I interview author and epidemiologist Elizabeth Pisani about her new book The Wisdom of Whores: Bureaucrats, Brothels and the Business of AIDS— a bracing look at how AIDS is perceived, sexually and politically, around the world.
I asked Elizabeth, if "number of partners" really does count, in certain situations, how do you do prevention education that isn't religious, moralistic, or hypocritical?
Finally, in my Try This at Home mailbag: What do you say to a listener who asks; help, my new husband is forty years old and he's completely in the dark about sex!
