(LOS ANGELES, CA) -- This Saturday, April 8, 2000, starting at about 10 PM (PT), The Dr. Susan Block Show will feature brilliant, provocative, National Magazine Award-winning author of The Lifestyle: A Look at the Erotic Rites of Swingers, Terry Gould.
"The Lifestyle is the most in-depth, insightful book on swinging in America since Thy Neighbor's Wife...beautifully and passionately written by a top investigative journalist who entered the World of Swing ready to condemn it and wound up understanding, defending and capturing it with unparalleled sensitivity. Peppered with enthralling interviews, wild sex scenes and funny situations, the book is anchored by Gould's extensive research and serious discussions of evolutionary psychology, world history, art and contemporary mores.
There's a fascinating section on how the evolutionary psych concept of "Sperm Warfare" causes so many swinger men to enjoy watching their wives have sex with other men. Therea also happens to be an excellent chapter on the history and meaning of my philosophy of Ethical Hedonism, including bits on The 10 Commandments of Pleasure, my seminars and shows at Lifestyles Conventions, but I'd love this book even if it didn't have me in it. This is important reading not just for swingers and the swing-curious, but for anyone interested in the complex nature of human sexuality." - SB
