Episode 181: Spring Fling, Samuel Delany (“Ash Wednesday”)

Leave a comment

This week we’re discussing a new essay by Samuel Delany, about a trip the author took to New York to hang out with an over-50s sex club. That might sound glib, but the essay is actually a really interesting, non-sensationalistic look at the life of an aging man who considers himself a sex radical. You can read the essay here. You can also read a companion interview conducted by Junot Diaz here.

Here’s a picture of a young Delany reading his work and looking sexy as all hell.

This week we’ve also got another story of authorial sexy times. Plus: Should you date or not date someone based on their taste in books?

As always, you can stream the episode right here on our site, or download the mp3 file. You can also find us in the iTunes store, or wherever you download your podcasts. Subscribe, and never miss another installment!
