A St. Louis sex blogger gets fired for, well, sex blogging, motherhood is a $100,000+ job, TSA employees bully a colleague with penis jokes after using “strip search” scanners and anti-gay Family Research Council founder George Alan Rekers hires a male prostitute to “lift luggage.” Oh, is that what they’re calling it nowadays? I just got a great idea for a Samsonite ad campaign! ;)

This week, inimitable sex blogger The Beautiful Kind (aka “TBK”) joins us to share her inspiring perspectives on writing about sex, getting fired for it, and being a mother. “I’m really confused by our society,” she says, citing the unambiguous yet very mixed signals about sexuality that mainstream media sends to us about sex. It fosters dangerous and harmful fears like the ones that caused her former employer to “brutally” fire her, even though she tried to remain anonymous, “dress like a mormon,” and be a model employee!

Our sincerest thanks to TBK for coming onto the show to talk with us, and on Mother’s Day, no less! TBK truly is, and our mothers really are, the beautiful kind. :)
