If the headlines and RSS feeds of the world are any induction, people love to discuss the sex lives of just about anybody -- including themselves. Is it because were insecure about our sexuality and wish to determine whats normal -- and where we fit on the scale -- by amassing as expansive a database of facts as possible? Maybe. More likely its because were social creatures, and sex is a shared experience. Monkey see, monkey do, monkey talk about it the next morning on the blog. One of the enduring forums for sharing has been Loveline, the syndicated call-in show hosted for many years by Dr. Drew Pinsky. Dr. Drew, as hes known to millions, pays a visit to the Touhill Performing Arts Center on the University of Missouri-St. Louis campus (1 University Drive at Natural Bridge Road; 314-516-4949 or www.touhill.org) at 7:30 p.m. this evening to answer questions from the audience about sex, love and relationships -- its a potent cocktail of frank talk about basic human drives, so it may not be comfortable for everyone. Whether youre going with the intent to ask a question or just to hear what your fellow citizens are up to, youre bound to learn something new about humanity. Admission is $5 for UMSL students and $18 for everyone else.
