Actor Michael Douglas recently claimed that oral sex caused his throat cancer. Susie reads from an article in The Guardian newspaper that reveals some candid facts about the Hollywood bigwig. Douglas says that HPV, human papillomavirus, is what did him in. Susie takes a more skeptical look at his claims, saying cunnilingus doesn´t cause cancer. Susie also looks at the HPV vaccine and how the sexually transmitted HPV virus can be spread. Next, Susie takes a loving look at John Williamson, the co-founder of the Sandstone Retreat, who recently passed away. Back in the early 1970s, John and his wife, Barbara, created a haven for communal nudity and open relationships near Malibu in the Topanga Canyon. This was during the heyday of the Sexual Revolution and Sandstone attracted many followers who were interested in not only free love but challenging the traditional rules of society. Susie talks about this true free spirit. Finally, Susie has another new sexy audiobook for us to sample. It´s Down and Dirty Sex Secrets: The New and Naughty Guide to Being Great in Bed. Written by sex educator Tristan Taormino, Susie says this book is great. Topics covered are oral sex, multiple orgasms, strap-ons, S&M, and more. Taormino narrates along with Madison Vaughn and Bryce Hamilton. Have a question? You can call Susie´s hotline at 831-480-5110.

Dill has had to wrestle with vipers his whole life - at home, as the only son of a Pentecostal minister who urges him to handle poisonous rattlesnakes; and at school, where he faces down bullies who target him for his father´s extreme faith and very public fall from grace. He and his fellow outcast friends must try to make it through their senior year of high school without letting the small-town culture destroy their creative spirits and senses of self. Graduation will lead to new beginnings for Lydia, whose edgy fashion blog is her ticket out of their rural Tennessee town. And Travis is content where he is thanks to his obsession with an epic book series and the fangirl turning his reality into real-life fantasy. Their diverging paths could mean the end of their friendship. But not before Dill confronts his dark legacy to attempt to find a way into the light of a future worth living. Includes the song ´´Birds Fly South´´, performed by the author and Elin Palmer. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Crouch, Ariadne Meyers, Ethan Sawyer.

The inspirational memoir from the founder of the You, Me and the Big C podcast, Rachael Bland. Courageous and life-affirming, this is a mother’s final gift to her son. My beautiful son, I so wish that I didn’t have to leave you now. But believe me, I tried everything I could to stay around for you and for every moment I could eke out of this life. From the outset, it was not a fair fight. My cancer was too big and too aggressive, and we didn’t start on a level playing field. You were 14 months old, and at the beginning I was so full of fierce intention that we could get past this. I would lay you in your cot each night and silently communicate from my mind to yours, ‘I will do this, Freddie. I will gladly take whatever they throw at me if it means we can stay together’.In 2016, beloved broadcaster and journalist Rachael Bland was diagnosed with cancer. Shortly afterwards she made the brave decision to share her story, and she spoke with beautiful poignancy through her blog and podcast, You, Me and the Big C. Having been told that she had only a matter of months left to live and writing this in what were sadly her final days, Rachael brings her warmth, courage and humour in this heartwarming and heartbreaking story. Part memoir, part advice, For Freddie beautifully encapsulates the grace and fearlessness in which Rachael lived her life. This is her legacy and an incredible final gift to her son.Includes moving contributions from Richard Bacon, Tony Livesey, Emma Barnett, Shelagh Fogarty, Mark Pougtach, Chris Stark and many more. 1.

A sixth-generation funeral director and writer of the popular ´´must read´´ (Time magazine) blog Confessions of a Funeral Director reflects on mortality and the powerful lessons death holds for every one of us in this compassionate and thoughtful spiritual memoir that combines the humor and insight of Smoke Gets in Your Eyes with the poignancy and brevity of When Breath Becomes Air. Death. It happens to everyone, yet most of us don´t want to talk about this final chapter of existence. Sixth-generation funeral director Caleb Wilde intimately understands this reticence and fear. The son of an undertaker, he hesitated to embrace the legacy of running his family´s business. Yet he discovered that caring for the deceased and their loved ones profoundly changed his faith and his perspective on death - and life itself. ´´Yes, death can be bad. Yes, death can be negative,´´ he acknowledges, ´´but it can also be beautiful. And that alternate narrative needs to be discussed´´. In Confessions of a Funeral Director, he talks about his experiences and pushes back against the death-negative ethos of our culture, opening a thoughtful, poignant conversation to help us see the end of life in a positive and liberating way. In the wry, compassionate, and honest voice that has charmed his growing legions of blog readers, Wilde offers an intimate look inside his business, offering information on unspoken practices around death such as the embalming process, beautiful and memorable stories about families in the wake of death, and, most importantly, a fresh and wise perspective on how embracing death can allow us to embrace life. Confessions of a Funeral Director is the story of one man learning how death illuminates and deepens the meaning of existence - insights that can help us all pursue and cherish full, rich lives. 1.
