Thanks Mom!

The podcast for last Sunday’s platform address on “Ethical Sex” will be up soon, and since I’m about to leave for a long weekend in California visiting the new Ethical Society of Silicon Valley, let me now give credit where it’s due. The platform is dedicated to my mother, Nancy, whose passion for women’s equality and open good sense about sexuality influenced me to no end. A few people have told me that they found my platform “brave”; I find it sad that approaching the topic of sex with positive common sense should be considered anything but banal, but these days in America that seems to be the case.

Speaking of truly brave women, let me recommend these books again: How the Pro-Choice Movement Saved America, by Christina Page; and Harmful to Minors: The Perils of Protecting Children from Sex, by Judith Levine.
