A wildlife expedition notebook that contains details about homosexuality, pederasty, necrophilia, and rape? Yep. Scientists say it's those sexy penguins being rowdy again. Today, Susie takes a look at a Guardian article by Tim Stanley that describes a study from the early 1900s, all about the sexual activities of the Antarctic penguin. Susie finds this very interesting and explains why, back then, "lewd" penguin behavior was considered a novelty. But now it seems that anthropomorphism - the practice of attributing human characteristics to animals - has taken on a moral aspect. There is no right or wrong or sexual outrage here. They are animals – not mirrors of ourselves. Get a grip!
Next, it's "Tell Me Your Sex Story", our ongoing listener interviews in which people like you step into Susie's sexual confession booth. Today we meet "Lorenzo", who recently told his wife, who likes vanilla-style sex, that he wanted to try swinging. Lorenzo and Susie talk about being bisexual or "trysexual" (I'll try sex with anyone) and what it's like to find out that your parents had a steamy sex life .
Then, in our "Try This at Home" mailbag, Susie finds a letter from a man who has religion on his mind. "How can I talk about sex to my conservative church friends?" he asks. Susie is praying her advice will help.
