Emergency contraception pills like Plan B and RU-486 have helped women block unwanted pregnancies effectively. Today, Susie takes a look at the many morning-after choices - and a newly approved, but not yet available, pill called "Ella" - to see how they all measure up. All brands are effective, but price and timing are key to which option might be best for you.
Next, Susie was intrigued by a recent Slate.com article by columnist William Saletan. He wrote that oral sex has become less stigmatized and is more common among young people. His premise was this is news - a new trend. Not so, says Susie, who thinks all the statistics and numbers he uses to defend his right-wing take are all a smokescreen. Susie thinks the real issue is the gap between how males vs. females perceive the morality of giving blow jobs and muffdives. Everyone is doing it, but as to who has feelings of guilt or shame - Susie says that's a gendered question.
Then in our "Try This at Home" mailbag, Susie gets a letter from a male listener who has recently been diagnosed with HSV 1. He wonders if there are any special diets that trigger or suppress a Herpes outbreak.
