Susie delves into a thorny issue for parents. "My teenager is having sex.... No way, not my baby!" Many American moms and dads wish their high-schoolers had no interest in sex - and therefore the kids are sleeping together, but not at the family home. Two recent articles from Slate and The New York Times looked at allowing teens to have sex at home, and Susie discusses the pros of letting kids sleep together.
Next, this just in from the UK's Telegraph: the blockbuster erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey is now becoming an immovable paper mountain at the local charity thrift stores. Seems like the heat has died down, and British readers are donating their books - and the stores are being overrun with copies they can't sell.
Finally, in Susie's "What's New on Audible" segment, she previews another new-and-sexy audiobook. This week's book, by Keith Sampsell, is A Common Pornography: A Memoir. Susie loves this author and says the audiobook is sad, funny, and intimate. She has an excerpt, narrated by Craig Jessen, for you to enjoy.
