Let’s just say your girlfriend gets turned on by listening to you talk to other people on the phone. Would it be so, so wrong to keep the customer service agent from Verizon on the line, just so your girlfriend can listen to you from the other room, masturbating furiously? A woman in an open marriage has started to see a woman. Her husband is fine with it. The caller is fine with it. The girlfriend is fine with it. So what’s the problem? Her friends! Her friends are NOT FINE WITH IT. Dan chats with Dr. David Frederick in a “What You Got?” about the successful strategies straight couple employ to have lasting relationships. And on the Magnum, Dan interviews the director and producer of “Give Me Sex Jesus” a documentary about the Christian Purity Movement. 206-302-2064

He's the architect of the national gay marriage legalization campaign. He and Dan discuss the plight of a gay, married man who has to move to a state that doesn't recognize his marriage.
