Summary

In this excerpt from In Bed with Susie Bright, Susie interviews Yale psychologist Paul Bloom about his fascinating best-selling book How Pleasure Works: The New Science of Why We Like What We Like. Paul and Susie talk about the pleasures of sex and how we perceive them.
How Pleasure Works draws on insights from child development, philosophy, neuroscience, and behavioral economics, to show how certain universal habits of the human mind explain what we like and why we like it. Bloom covers everything from the animal instincts of sex and food to the uniquely human taste for art, music, and stories.
Called “the widest read, most reviled and revered sex expert in America” by The San Jose Mercury News, Susie Bright is one of the best-known sex writers in the United States. Susie has teamed up with Audible to bring you her weekly show, In Bed with Susie Bright, available only at Audible.com®.

    Suzie Bright is always worth listening to.

    Really interesting discussion and I feel I have learned some new ways to look at sex and relationships. I’m off now to find more similar programs.

    there aspects of reflections Susie shared with her interviewee that I found disturbing, unhealthy and questionable. Therefore, I chose to discontinue my listening experience of this book.

    Interviewer lost the sale

    Susie Bright is an absolute twit doing such an interview. She sounds like she was faking insecurity in trying to get a personal response from the Author, or working on a seduction. I am not impressed, as I wanted to hear about him and how he came to create such a book, and definite in not hearing about her or her antics. She comes across vulgar. I did not hear enough from the Author to decide about purchasing his book. Too bad her interview was so poor. The system would not let me enter any response without putting a star above, so I had to enter 1 star....not my choice.

    Avoid at all costs

    What would have made Free Interview: Susie Bright Speaks with Paul Bloom, Author of How Pleasure Works better?

    The interviewer was horrible. I hope she was free as she came off as a completely uneducated wanton. Her use of profanity was sophomoric. Her simile of "incest is like screwing the pooch" was both heartless. I feel sorry for the professor who otherwise probably wrote a very interesting treatise. I recommend he dumps this interview.

    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Never ever one of Susie Dims interviews.

    How could the performance have been better?

    If Susie hadn't spoken.

    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Free Interview: Susie Bright Speaks with Paul Bloom, Author of How Pleasure Works?

    Anytime Susie talked.

    Any additional comments?

    As the first such interview I have listened to on Audible, it leaves a terrible taste in my mouth and makes me believe that any trash can be called "content".
