Religion has plenty to say about sex. Scriptures and religious leaders tell us who to have sex with, who not to have sex with, what forms and outcomes of sex are acceptable or unacceptable in what sorts of relationships. But does it help? How well can ancient religious texts address sexual ethics in a world that only recently has reliable contraception, recognizes that full emotional maturity lags sexual maturity by a number of years, and concedes that women have a legal right to say, "No,"--and"Yes"?

Join us as we talk with writer and erotica editor Greta Christina about how we negotiate sexual ethics in a secular world and what we gain when we let go of the notion that sex should be "transcendent" and allow it to be earthy. Maybe even dirty.
