This week, Susie takes us on a journey that depicts the many stages of erotic love. And to make this trip really dig into our soul, Susie picks songs that represent the various types of emotions we go through when we're in love. What songs do think of when your lover has cheated on you? Or what tune just says it all when you're in the throws of lust for a new lover? Well Susie's list is surprising and diverse, so get ready for a music playlist that will have you laughing and weeping.Next, there have been more political scandals to talk about. Don't these guys ever learn? Susie looks at the mayor of Portland, Oregon, whose sexcapades with an 18-year-old intern are making headlines. Sam Adams is the openly gay mayor who lied about the affair, because he thought people might think he began the relationship when the boy was minor. But Susie has a problem with the episode because of the inequality of the relationship - the kid, she says, was used and exploited.Then, in the "Try This at Home" mailbag, Susie responds to a serious letter from a husband who says that it feels like rape when he has marital sex, because his wife is repulsed by his desire. Susie has some advice for this delicate situation.You can send your confidential questions - plus requests for free samples and blog banners! - to firstname.lastname@example.org.
