The Sexual Mystery

3 segments
It's a well known fact that music can arouse more than just the ears. On this installment of The Tristan Mysteries, Amy O'Leary uncovers the aphrodisiac qualities of Wagner's opera. Also, George Preston examines the sex-appeal of Tristan from the clinical—and decidedly non-clinical—point of view, with anthropologist Helen Fisher and adult film star/"Vivid Girl" Savanna Samson.

Contributors to The Sexual Mystery include:

  • Terrance McNally, Playwright & Librettist
  • Colin Levin, an opera student at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music
  • A Soprano who wishes to remain anonymous
