The “Blowing on Embers” Edition

The pandemic halted my affair. Do I still need to tell my husband? Help!

Episode Notes

This week’s mini episode finds Prudence visited by Sarah Jones, a Tony- and Obie-winning performer and writer known for her multicharacter one-person shows, including her current, critically acclaimed show Sell/Buy/Date.

Prudie and Jones discuss a letter writer who’s wondering if she should keep her affair a secret from her husband since the pandemic has put a stop to it anyway, and how to bring up new sexual needs to your husband of 25 years that may involve polyamory.
