I am so excited for this week’s episode of Sex Out Loud! Comedians Margaret Cho and Jim Short sat down with me in New York for an unforgettable conversation. Margaret dishes on her new one-woman show Mother, her recent appearance on The View, the body-shaming experience she’ll never forget, why she thinks she doesn’t have a G-spot, and her role on the hit show Drop Dead Diva. Plus, Margaret, Jim, and I talk about anal pleasure, public sex, BDSM, double penetration, and open marriage—nothing is off limits in this frank, provocative discussion—you do not want to miss it! Mark your calendar, set your alerts, even plan a listening party with friends – Friday, August 9th at 8 pm ET / 5 pm on Voice America.
