Everybody, and I mean everybody has something sexual going on

So I finished Naked Conversations (the cool new Isreal and Scoble book) and they said that IT has experimented and initiated all the new technology (I have already loaned it out or I would quote the passage directly).  Anyway, I want to add that I think it’s sex, not IT that has caused most of the new technologies to be developed and perfected.  Everything from the VCR, satellite TV, webcams, virtual reality, man the whole web is still about sex.  Soon it will be sex and podcasting…. If you do a search on itunes for sex podcasts, (or so my friend Patti from SpinMamas tells me sinmamas.com, for women who cope that there are only 70 podcasts in the whole world on sex. Time to dive in with a sex with sue podcast I think…

If I haven’t mentioned it before, sex is the second most powerful drive in the human body after food. What’s amazing to me is that so many people seem so hung up on it.  Hey, I’m as whitebread as they come (2 kids, bungalow, white, heterosexual husband of 10 years, and I rarely dress him up as Little Bo Peep), but we all do it.  I want to take out a bus ad that says, Relax, it’s only sex. So we rub our genitals together?  So what? If it’s safe and consentual, to quote Martha Stewart "it’s a good thing". I had a bunch of questions from my radio show of people feeling really different and isolated.  The longer I’m a sex therapist the more I know that everyone, is uncomfortable about some of their sexual feelings, and thinks their a bit wierd, or that they are somehow wrong for liking it too much, or liking it not enough.  Anyway, my thought this morning reading my mail, is you are all okay, and be a little gentle with yourselves.

Feeling the Love, Sue
