(June 29, 2010) Topic: condoms for elementary school children. School nurses have been handing out condoms for years...but now in Massachusetts, they'll be giving them to elementary school children. The "revised" policy (after considerable public and parental outcry) is to only give them to 5th and 6th graders. Dr J has more details. Listen here.

(May 13, 2010) Topic: effects of "the pill" on our culture. Dr J appears on Florida-based radio show Religion, Politics, and Culture to discuss the Pill's effects on sexuality and culture in America. When it was first introduced, the assumption was made that it would basically result in "all the current options plus one"--but its effects have been much more far-reaching and have resulted in a drastic shift in sexual norms and mores. As always, Dr J explains. Listen here.

(April 30, 2010) Topic: 50th Anniversary of "the pill." Time Magazine ran an article on America's 50-year relationship with the Pill. What was it designed to do? What has it done?
