God there's still the world of sexpert Dr. Susan Block,
who has the courage to continuously affirm her deeply-held faith
in fishnet stockings and other family values...Dr. Block is one of
the nation's leading sexologists, and a very bright and funny woman to
Block is not a typical sex therapist. She is a Yale graduate who has lectured
at the University of Southern California and been featured in documentaries
on HBO. She conducts her 10-year-old program, "The Dr. Susan Block
Show," while reclining on a studio bed clad in revealing lingerie...
Dr. Block also can take credit for offering some prescient financial advice.
While some Wall Street experts were urging investors to load up on Adelphia
shares, Dr. Block was urging her audience to dump Adelphia stock 'to punish
them,' she said. Adelphia has since been delisted."
Susan Block is America's hottest sex therapist, dispensing wisdom from
her boudoir and taking the bonobo chimps as her model for the perfect
sexual philosophy. Her extremely enjoyable, informative book (The

person horny for the rest of our lives."
love you, Dr. Suzy!"
"Dr. Susan Block is our favorite
boudoir revolutionary...a sex goddess with a philosophy Ph.D."
Susan Block is a genius when it comes to sexual matters, and I hold her
in the highest regard...She is brilliant in front of the camera. She works
her audience so well as she presses her sexual freedom beliefs and sexual
healing theories...Her fans adore her. She received phone call after phone
call, and she responded to each one with compassion and understanding.
She added plenty of sassiness and witticism too...She has helped thousands
of people become more sexually satisfied through her television show and
over the Internet, her books, including The Ten Commandments of Pleasure,
her newsletter, and her private consultations... She is my idol."
case you've been living in a cave and, therefore, have never enjoyed The
Dr. Susan Block Show, a bit of introduction might be in order. Block's
shows are a saucy melange of education and titillation, featuring not
only what you might expect from a Sex Doctor -- sex advice. anatomical
information, educational content -- but some things you might not -- a
history lesson here, a masturbation session there, and plenty of porn
stars frolicking amid Block's own brand of political discussion and spiritual
celebration. I had the pleasure to enjoy two episodes of this excellent
show, and it's safe to say that neither one is quite like anything I'd
ever seen before...Block's enthusiasm for her topic is beyond infectious,
and it's almost impossible to watch the show without enjoying her celebratory

queen, the incredibly sexy Dr. Susan Block, who delights the men in Zion

“Dr. Block is so knowledgeable, frank and
articulate that we have a really fun, easy conversation. I have not had
a good intellectual discussion in a while, especially while investigating
porn. She uses metaphors that will take me days to figure out. She is
poetic, provocative and pornographic at the same time. She’s part
philosopher, part Dionysian sex goddess, part porn pundit. Her body is
as hard and lean as a twenty-four-year-old’s. She definitely takes
Dr. Ruth to another level. She retains her sense of humor while fielding
a call and holding open her guest’s vaginal lips at the same time.
God, she has guts. Sam and I exchange a look as if to say, she might be
slightly crazy, but damn is she smart. She is the only sexpert he can
imagine actually having sex. I am fascinated how these two women, the
hyper-intellectual academic and the seXXXpert, can live in the same body.
We talk about relationships and sex for an entire hour, and I love that
most of her recommendations are simple and easy to try and do not involve
anything you have to buy or read. In fact, I could continue asking her
questions for another hour, but I realize I should at least pretend like
I have a life. Thanks to my talk with Dr. Block, I feel much better equipped
now to be in a relationship.”

body, Dr. Block melds entertainment, eroticism, insight and philosophy
so skillfully that it's hard to tell where one starts and the others end."
Susan Block's Los Angeles sex therapy show, "Sex, Fun, Wisdom,"
has been censored week after week on a TV station owned by the Rigas family's
Adelphia Communications. The Rigases say they are good and she is bad.
Yesterday, Susan Block watched the glorious sight on television of the
whole Rigas family walking around in handcuffs...She got out her statement
to read to all callers: 'Beware of those who are holier than thou, for
often they are fleecers of their own flock.' "
Susan Block got the last laugh...and earned the last word in her debate

"Dr. Suzy is no ordinary doc...I was struck by
the combination of cool aplomb and sexy compassion with which she handles
her callers...Unlike the great majority of degreed professionals who know
something about sex, she refuses to de-eroticize herself to get respect.
She refuses to follow in the footsteps of the likes of the unfuckable
Dr. Ruth, and this may not get her invited to some conferences, but she
knows where her real respect comes from--her listeners and viewers, many
of whom call her over and over and whose stories, problems and sexual
fantasies she knows so well."

“Dr. Block wrote a book Advertising
for Love in 1984 about a new dating trend that she thought was unique
and hip. The dating trend was something called “personal ads.”
Hard to believe there was a time when there weren’t personal ads.
She laughs at the fact that she had the foresight to be one of the first
people to think personal ads would explode. She even had a small chapter
on using this new thing on the computer called ‘The Internet’
to post personal ads.”

classification...a real high quality site!"
Block, I'm writing to express my appreciation for the wonderful lecture
you presented to the undergraduate Human Sexuality class. The class really
enjoyed the presentation. Your compassion, knowledge and expertise in
this area really helped the students in understanding bonobo sexuality

Block, your presentation on the Bonobos given to students enrolled in
the undergraduate course, Human Sexuality, was very well received. The
students' comments reflect that they learned much from such an outstanding
and thought-provoking presentation. After the course ended, several students
commented that your presentation should not be missed by anyone enrolled
in this course."
