this was a good podcast, you guys. I get depressed when I read polls too. But Tim’s comment about Lawrence v. TX and the changing attitudes resulting – I mean, I was a freshman in college in 03, and had been out for a few years – that does make me feel better. Because that time right now doesn’t seem that long ago.

I still remember Joseph Palmer, the teacher I had for accounting in high school. He always used to say “Number don’t lie, figures do.”

This, coupled with the statistics classes in college makes me take every poll with a grain of salt.

As is the case with this study, the whole background was a public health issue. It never intended to do otherwise is correct.

Look at any infidelity study. At least half of straight married people are having sex outside their marriage. Aren’t those marriages open? The only difference is whether or not that openness was agreed upon in advance.

Thank you for providing a direct link to this podcast!

Now I can save it directly to my non-ipod MP3 player and listen to this at work!

I’m not able to connect to the direct download. Do I need some special settings?

I just right clicked on the word “here” and selected “Save Target As” and then selected my podcast folder on my MP3 player, which I had already previously connected to my computer. I’m running Windows XP. My mp3 player is a Sansa Fuze.

I imagine that if you just click on the “here” link, whatever program your computer has associated with .mp3 files should launch and start playing the program.

Otherwise, just click the play button on the embedded web application and listen to the program right within the web browser.

Ok, let me be the first to say who cares if my partner and I want to have an open relationship. They can add me to their statistics. Of course I’m reminded of all the straight people like my roommates who are swingers, and all the people who voted “YES” on prop 8 who cheat on their other halves. Oh I like those cheaters cause nothing gets me more then hippocrates who vote “YES” and yet cheat!

Timothy is so dumb. Heterosexuals are very active against any rights gay people get. Heterosexuals in Houston went to the voting booth several years ago to write in their constitution only heterosexual city workers can get health benefits. That’s just one of the many rights heterosexuals went to the voting booths en masse to deny gay people. Anti-gay bigotry is omnipresent and real.
