It was my pleasure to appear on the Positive Mind show on WBAI radio back in December to promote my book Modern Sexuality. The hosts, Kevin and Ben are very prepared and ask terrific questions, so we always end up having deep and meaningful discussions. This was my second time appearing– the first was back in June when we spent two hours discussing “alternative” sexualities (you can find those audio files by going to the Media page and scrolling down or clicking here for part 1 and here for part 2.
Anyway, this was such a phenomenal interview, with such breadth to the conversation, I thought blog readers would be interested in hearing the whole 1hr 20 segment. I’m including show notes below with timestamps so that you can go and skip ahead to any particular parts that you find most interesting. BTW, if you are interested in learning more about Modern Sexuality, which spent several months in the top 10 on Amazon in its category, you might also be interested in taking a look at this fantastic review in Playboy Magazine. Enjoy!
