A recent Huffington Post article caught Susie´s attention. It´s titled ´´8 Things America Gets Wrong About Sex´´. Oh boy, when you hear this list, you will be just as intrigued as Susie! The article ranges from how our health care system ignores sexual health, to sub-par abstinence-based education for the kids, to a schizophrenic relationship that many people have with porn. Next, Susie talks about a serious problem in the small city of Sandy Springs, Georgia. If women want to buy a sex toy there, they need a doctor´s prescription. What? Really? One resident has filed a lawsuit, and her lawyer is arguing that the government should not be able to ´´stick its nose in your bedroom and say you can use this but not that.´´ Talk about Big Brother controlling our vibrators! Finally, it´s Susie´s ´´Try This at Home´´ mailbag. She asked listeners to send in ideas for topics she should cover as she writes a story about sex for AARP. What is important to talk about regarding sex for the over-50 crowd? The response was overwhelming; you all had much to say, and Susie highlights one listener´s letter.

Usually it takes Stringer a little while to rile folks in a new town. But no sooner does he step off the train in Tulsa, than some sidewinder is doing his best to turn Stringer into yesterday´s news.
