Hailed by the San Francisco Chronicle as "the X-rated intellectual", Susie Bright is indisputably the sexpert of our times. Now, in a frank and intimate look at our own erotic experience, she delves into the most personal aspects of sex and shows us how our sexual passion can be a source of creativity and inspiration. Bright explores some of the most complex questions about sexuality today, including: how can we come clean about our true desire; what are the real differences between men's and women's sense of the erotic; why is it so threatening to consciously address sexual desire in the first place; and how can articulate erotic expression make us better lovers and, more important, better people? Bright concludes with an "erotic manifesto" that is a call for everyone to reclaim sexuality, cast off sexual shame, and overcome repression.More

Probably better as a physical book
As typical with Susie, you can sense her passion and humor in every moment. And in truth, there are many parts of this book where you feel like she connects with the listener on a personal level. But in audio format, this book reads like a lecture series, where questions are not allowed during, and no peer review will take place after. If you don't mind the style of writing where you pose a question, and then suppose that the inquiry alone is proof enough for the conclusion the author will make next, then this book is actually fairly entertaining and insightful. I however find it a pet peeve to state things as though they are facts and not back them up. But I still found hours of enjoyment with this book.
I would have enjoyed this story more, if in the course of the author's full exposure, more insight was given to the methods by which she arrived at her beliefs. This book presents itself as a sort of everything on the table book, which it does well. But the author takes the time to pose a great question, the reader should either be given time to consider the question, or the author must supply their own reasoning on the subject.
I think I would go see this as a movie.
