We loved Alix Fox in The Modern Mann, and we love her even more as the host of this warm and worthy program from The Guardian, in which she talks to everyday people about their interesting sex lives. A trained educator in the area of sexy things, Fox is equipped with a charm that is both quintessentially British and bracingly frank, and in the face of this double whammy, her subjects willingly reveal their most private truths. SHE has introduced us to a young woman who has struggled all her life with vaginismus, a man who lost the use of his lower body shortly before his honeymoon, and another who's come to accept his below-average-sized penis. These conversations are startlingly honest, educational, at times moving. Produced in the slick, straightforward fashion we've come to expect from Guardian Audio, we predict this will be reliably good listening in the weeks and months to come.
