The Love Drug

Playwright Carolyn Gage performing one of her Sermons for a Lesbian Tent Revival. This one has great relevance for non-lesbians as well. She titles it “The Real L-Words” and first discusses the poverty of our words to distinguish among many forms of love and lists alternative words. Then she talks about the brain chemistry at work when we “fall in love,” what to expect, and how to protect ourselves (and others) from disastrous long-term choices while under the influence.

LANGUAGE ADVISORY: Twice the word “shit” appears as a colloquial synonym for “stuff,” and twice the word “clit” appears as a term for a body part. The content and intent are in no way salacious. However, if your audience is expected to be hyper-sensitive, please use a re-run for this week.
