The A to Z of Sex
Thursday at 11 AM Pacific Time/2 PM Eastern Time on VoiceAmerica Health Channel
I explore the A to Z of Sex and everything in between. Learning your erotic A, B, C’s is fun! Topics covered include arousal to bisexuality to BDSM to monogamy to polyamory. I uncover taboos and provide outside the box solutions to intimate issues. All genders, orientations and desires are welcome. My guests join me to explore all aspects of sex and relationships. We debunk myths, look at trends and set some trends of our own.
On the show I use a combination of special guests including experts and ordinary individuals with experience of the issues we discuss. Please call in to the Q and A segment or submit your questions in advance via email. The only stupid question is the question that is not asked, go ahead, ask whatever you like! I guarantee that at least a dozen other people have the same question you have and are too embarrassed to ask. Each week I give you some tips, tricks and teach skills that will help you to create the sex life you have always desired.
