Violet and Corky are making laundry day a very big deal. Before making their name with worldwide smash hit The Matrix and its two sequels (which they similarly wrote and directed), sibling duo The Wachowskis debuted with this sizzling neo-noir thriller financed by legendary Italian producer Dino De Laurentiis. Gina Gershon (Showgirls, Face/Off) plays Corky, a young woman recently released from a five-year jail term for, as she puts it, the 'redistribution of wealth'. After a brief lift encounter with her sexy and sultry neighbour Violet (Jennifer Tilly) the pair strike up a steamy love affair under the nose of Violet's unhinged Mafia boyfriend Caesar (Joe Pantoliano). Soon the two women are hatching a plot to steal $2 million from Caesar and his associates - but if you're going to mess with the mob, you'd better be sure you do it right... Hugely well received upon its release, reviews for Bound saw some critics comparing the Wachowskis with the Coen Brothers - and Blood Simple in particular - whilst Roger Ebert heaped praise on the film, declaring it to be 'one of those movies that works you up, wrings you out and leaves you gasping'. By turns shocking and funny (and with plenty of lesbian sex scenes thrown in for good measure) Bound is an astoundingly assured debut which oozes style and sensuality.

From the unprecedented number of states that passed gay-marriage laws to the busting of the actor who played Elmo, Susie covers a wide range of sex-related issues.

Arnold Schwartznegger: actor, governor, and now… dirty rotten scoundrel. Maria Shriver and Arnold have called it quits to their marriage as the world learns of his love child with another woman. And Shriver stood by this guy for all these years? Why? Susie has some insights into their complicated relationship. She also looks at the history of this strange celebrity political family. She's not sure if Arnold will be able to fulfill his "I'll be back" promise. Next, Susie has been traveling a lot lately on her book tour and has used the time between trains, planes, and automobiles to catch up on some reading. She has a favorite memoir to share with you: A Common Pornography by Kevin Sampsell. Susie reads from a chapter of his book, one that deals with his sexual coming of age.

Susie begins the show by reading an article about a young, gay wresting star who became an HIV scapegoat. Written by Steven Thrasher for BuzzFeed, it's a story about a college kid who has lots of consensual, unprotected sex with other guys. Why does he become the scapegoat? He's black, and the white guys say he told them he was clean (no HIV), and he wasn't. Susie shares this incredible tale, which will have you wondering who to believe. Next, Susie loves a question that a fellow sexpert - Dear Prudence - received over at Slate. "My daughter is using our kitchen like it's her sex-toy playground," a mom asks Dear Prudence. "What can I do?" It seems the young adolescent was caught using the electric hand mixer as a vibrator. Egads! What other appliances has she used? Susie likes the advice that was given and has a little more of her own to add to the...mix. Then, it's the "Try This at Home" mailbag. Susie has a letter from a listener who wants more interviews with porn stars. He remembers one of his favorite performers from the past, and wonders where the actor is now. Susie says she'll track down the star. But until then, she offers up her deluxe special: Masters of Erotic Cinema, which is available from Audible. This is a six-hour compilation that must not be missed. Have a question or news story for Susie? You can send your confidential queries and comments to email@example.com.

Actor Michael Douglas recently claimed that oral sex caused his throat cancer. Susie reads from an article in The Guardian newspaper that reveals some candid facts about the Hollywood bigwig. Douglas says that HPV, human papillomavirus, is what did him in. Susie takes a more skeptical look at his claims, saying cunnilingus doesn't cause cancer. Susie also looks at the HPV vaccine and how the sexually transmitted HPV virus can be spread. Next, Susie takes a loving look at John Williamson, the co-founder of the Sandstone Retreat, who recently passed away. Back in the early 1970s, John and his wife, Barbara, created a haven for communal nudity and open relationships near Malibu in the Topanga Canyon. This was during the heyday of the Sexual Revolution and Sandstone attracted many followers who were interested in not only free love but challenging the traditional rules of society. Susie talks about this true free spirit. Finally, Susie has another new sexy audiobook for us to sample. It's Down and Dirty Sex Secrets: The New and Naughty Guide to Being Great in Bed. Written by sex educator Tristan Taormino, Susie says this book is great. Topics covered are oral sex, multiple orgasms, strap-ons, S&M, and more. Taormino narrates along with Madison Vaughn and Bryce Hamilton. Have a question? You can call Susie's hotline at 831-480-5110.

When ISIS released its manifesto following the Paris bombings, Susie found their obsession with "prostitution" and "vice" a key insight into their twisted sexual revenge fantasies. Paris is a city known for romance and unashamed ecstasy, and this is a real threat to the ISIS "faith Army". They believe in sex-slavery, not free love. Next, Susie has a lot to say about actor Charlie Sheen's recent announcement on the Today Show that he is HIV positive. Seen by many as a brave move on his part, Susie says uh uh, he is hiding something much bigger, and trying to deflect our attention. Susie is not buying his "confession" and thinks he's doing a real disservice to the whole AIDS/HIV community. Finally, it's "What's New on Audible". Get ready for a great new memoir. Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl by Carrie Brownstein is a raw, heartfelt look into her experiences as a young girl and then as a celebrated performer. Brownstein is the co-creator of the television show Portlandia and a founding member of the rock group Sleater-Kinney.
