Love Lust And Laughter – 08.25.15

Dr. Susan Block author of “THE BONOBO WAY – The Evolution of Peace through Pleasure” (www.BonoboWay.com) returned to the program. Dr. Suzy and Dr. Diana focused on the ways to release one’s inner bonobo. (Marilyn Monroe’s quote fits: “Sex is part of nature. I go along with nature.”) The author asks, What do these great apes know about sex, war and the rest of life that we don’t? The bonobos embrace sexual pleasure, and along the way exhibit bisexuality, female solidarity, deep compassion, curiosity, generosity, reciprocity, swinging, combining food with sex – infusing play into everything they do. It would seem that bonobos are really smart – yet sexy and fun! Part 1 of this show is archived, July 28th… and we will do a Part 3 very soon. Please listen and learn – Dr. Suzy is brilliant!
