American Sex Podcast Episode 44: Dan Savage of Savage Lovecast

Dan Savage of the Savage Lovecast and Savage Love advice column talks with Sunny and Ken about growing up gay while attending an all-boys Catholic seminary school (and the extreme measures he took to get expelled); the impact the It Gets Better Project has had on LGBTQ youth; how he accidentally became the go-to sex advice columnist of the 21st century; using sexuality to cope with our tough political times; the birth of Santorum; his ITMFA project and more.

Sunny and Ken recap the International Whore’s Day protests/marches, talk about the next damaging law on the horizon — the End Banking for Traffickers Act and how it may affect freelancers, further social media censorship, and they launch a new pleasure product giveaway.
