Susie begins today's show by reading a story written by EcoWhore. This real-life sex worker lives in the wilderness and uses her van as her boudoir. She was an underaged prostitute, and this tale is called "Exploitation".
Next, monogamy is up for debate. Fellow sexpert Dan Savage is in the news for his view that non-monogamy can help save marriages. Susie says hooray! But it seems that many other people disagree. A New York Times story brought out responses from readers with scary closed-minded views on the sanctity of matrimony, saying they could never forgive a cheating spouse. But that's the rub, Savage says: talk it out, don't be secretive, understand your partner's kinks and fetishes… it's normal. Who ever thought that infidelity and open relationships could save a marriage?
Then, in our "Try This at Home" mailbag, Susie answers a letter from a man who wonders if he's a good candidate for Internet dating. He asks: "Is online dating a big con, and how do you ever meet anyone nice?"
