[Contains explicit content] Susie takes a look at what it's really like to be bisexual and notes that bisexuality isn't all it's cracked up to be. Imagine being shunned by both straights and gays because you just don't fit in. Susie reads from her story "Blind Sexual", which is not a happy story, but it does have some sexy twists and turns. And surprisingly, you'll hear from Roland Barthes, the French grand master of theoretical criticism, as Susie quotes from his classic book A Lover's Discourse to make sense of her suffering through rejection from both sexes. Then, from the mailbag, a listener has a beef with her co-workers: "What do I do with their dirty little Disney movie?"
