Dr. Ramani and Silvia Saige discuss Louis CK and his exhibitionist masturbation issue. They dig deeper into using power for sex of any type and if there's a way to solve this problem. Dr. Ramani brings up the sexual spectrum in America, ranging from Calvanistic to outrageously deviant, and why we're at extremes. Silvia laments the fact that we don't teach our kids about sex in a healthy way.

They ask the questions--

Did these abusive men in the news not get the girl when they were younger?

Why is masturbation considered shameful?

Does porn give people permission to do what they see in it?
