This show is about us discussing hot topics and how they relate to the law.

Tonight we discuss a military case involving a marine who engaged in a consensual threesome and because of that was convicted of adultery, attempted consensual sodomy and indecent conduct, a "crime" based solely on undefined sexual conduct inconsistent with "common propriety."  Our guests are Dick Cunningham and John Sokol of the National Coalition of Sexual Freedom (NCSFreedom.org). 

Mr. Cunningham practices law with the Washington-based law firm of Steptoe & Johnson LLP.  In addition to his international trade law practice, Dick has been actively involved in social advocacy issues – with particular emphasis on sexual freedom and gender rights – for more than forty years. He has been active in organizations that promote fairness, liberty and nondiscrimination in sex and gender, including the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom (NCSF) and the Woodhull Freedom Foundation. Dick usually serves as counsel to NCSF’s national “Consent Counts” project, which seeks to decriminalize consensual sexual conduct.
John Sokol's background includes fifteen years in law enforcement, five years as an insurance fraud investigator, and almost two decades in the airlines industry (three of which were as a computer forensic investigator). His experience has given him a unique perspective about the pitfalls of living safely in our computerized society. In 2000 John was invited to become a speaker and presenter for The National Coalition for Sexual Freedom and was Program Director from 2001 until 2002.
