Lunchbox/Soapbox: Cyndi Darnell: Sex? What's Up With That?

Listen to Lunchbox/Soapbox: Cyndi Darnell: Sex? What's Up With That?

What is it about sex that is so terrifying? Why do we spend billions either pursuing it or prohibiting it? Sex is everywhere, or so it seems.

In an age where we have virtually unfettered access to any kind of sex we want, we are more riddled with social conservatism, isolation, depression and anxiety than ever. In an age where sex rules the web but not our prime-time discussions, it’s time we stepped up the cultural landscape and got a bit real with ourselves when it comes to the power, necessity and function of sex.

Cyndi Darnell — sex therapist and sex educator — tackles the elephant in the room.
