Valentine LUPERCALIA Rising This Saturday on The Dr. Susan Block Show

“Happy Lupercalia! Forget Candy and Flowers! Enjoy Whips and Floggers!  And remember: the Valentine ‘heart’ is no cardiac muscle, but a nice, red, well-whipped butt,” says Dr. Block

This Saturday night, February 16th, The Dr. Susan Block Show will whip it up for Lupercalia, the original Valentine’s Day. Honoring exclusive, romantic love on Valentine’s Day is a relatively new invention, created by the Catholic Church and commercialized by Hallmark.  But the tradition of celebrating all-inclusive wild lust in mid-February dates back to the Lupercalia, the prehistoric Roman festival of communal sexuality, purification and fertility, the rush of hormones, the howl of the wolf, the crack of the whip (the februa) and the coming of spring.

This Saturday’s LUPERCALIA Rising is part of Eve Ensler’s international campaign against rape and violence, One Billion Rising: Strike, Dance, Rise Up.

Joining international sexologist Dr. Susan Block in her Womb Room broadcast studios will be fetish star and female ejaculatrix Eden Alexander, BDSM performer and martial artist Sebastian Keys, latex fetish starlet Idelsy Love, the return of world-class lifestyle domina Mistress C, and award winner and Nightmoves TS performer of 2012 Tiffany Starr.

Valentine/LUPERCALIA Rising will air live February 16th, 2013, 10:30pm-Midnight PST on The Dr. Susan Block Show. Listen FREE at  Call-In Free: 1.866.289.7068.

Block, PhD, world-renowned Yale-educated sexologist, best-selling author and host of HBO specials, the Institute’s mission is to help individuals, couples and communities enhance their sexuality and improve their lives based upon Dr. Block’s philosophy of Ethical Hedonism and the Bonobo Way of Peace through Pleasure.
