Sex in the News
In this weeks sex roundup, we flashback to Cher in a bathtub and then flash forward to a NYC event you won’t want to miss. In between we’ll reminisce about the songs that made us want to put our hands on other people, discuss ways to green our sex life, and take the value of condoms.
