Let's Talk About Sex

Esther Perel’s TED talks about fidelity have been watched more than 13 million times, and her book Mating in Captivity is a New York Times best-seller. Dan Savage’s syndicated sex advice column “Savage Love” has been a hit for 25 years, and his “Savage Lovecast” continues to top the podcasts charts ten years in. Jennifer Finney Boylan, transgender activist, author, and Times op-ed contributor, steals the show on “I Am Cait.” Put the three of them together in a nightclub with NPR’s Hanna Rosin and you’re sure to get a frank and lively discussion about sex, marriage, infidelity, and what it’s like to live as a transgender person in America today.
