In a culture that seems bent on telling us that sex is wrong while at the same time using it to sell us cars and cigarettes, Susie Bright is a breath, no, hurricane of fresh air. Bright--who started her public life with the nom de plume of Susie Sexpert--is intent on telling us that talking about sex isn't just good, it is mandatory for emotional sanity and happiness. Bright is forthright, honest, and amazingly cheerful about sex. No topics are taboo and she speaks from personal experience as well as from her own extensive research. Sexual State of the Union is filled with good news, good advice, and good sense.
