Danielle Corsetto has been reading Emily's newly released book, Come As You Are: The Surprising New Science That Will Transform Your Sex Life (available soon in the UK). Danielle asks questions about what makes sex hurt, and whether that's normal. They also discuss the male-centric definitions of sex (especially as it pertains to orgasm), as well as how Big Pharma is trying to medicalize women's sexual dysfunction with "Female Viagra".
