Robin Rinaldi was mid-life, mid-career and mid-marriage when she placed that ad. It launched her wild oats project – a year spent exploring sex. I know this is not the kind of thing you expect to hear on public radio, but I was thinking – we’ve been talking about shame in this hour, and Robin’s experiment was all about breaking free of shame and constraint. She tells the story of her wild year in a new memoir.
