Susan Block Biography

In 1994, Block first saw the “Make-Love-Not-War” bonobo chimpanzees on PBS, and in 1996, she started the Block Bonobo Foundation, an advocacy group for the highly endangered bonobos who also figure prominently in her book The 10 Commandments of Pleasure. Called “the Erin Brockovich of the Bonobo” by Salon, Block uses the highly sexual, relatively non-violent and non-male-dominant bonobo “lifestyle” as inspiration for her philosophy of “Ethical Hedonism,” a.k.a. “The Bonobo Way of Peace through Pleasure.” She contributes to the conservation efforts of the Bonobo Conservation Initiative and Lola ya Bonobo, among others. She has produced several bonobo oriented radio and TV shows and DVD’s including “The Bonobo Conservation Revolution” with Deni Béchard, “The Bonobo Handshake” with Vanessa Woods, The Bonobo Imperative with Bushmeat Project Director Tony Rose, “Letter to Kabilah,” “Peace, Love and Bonobos” with Sally Jewell Coxe and “The Bonobo Way” with Harvard anthropologist Richard Wrangham. She is also featured in the documentaries Cousin Bonobo and Humanimal, among others. Her book The Bonobo Way: The Evolution of Peace Through Pleasure was published in November 2014.

She also worked as a New Haven City Mime, performed as a member of the casts of New England Commedia and La Mer Mime, and Mask Theater, and wrote freelance articles.

According to Astrologers, Susan zodiac sign is Gemini In 1990, Block collaborated with Lobkowicz to produce the audio cassette series “Desert Susan,” distributed to the troops of Desert Storm, and “Bedtime Stories for Adults.” They also published Dr. Block’s Journal. In 1992, Block and Lobkowicz got married in Philadelphia. That same year, they began filming Block’s radio show, now called The Dr. Susan Block Show, for cable TV. They also founded the Dr. Susan Block Institute for the Erotic Arts & Sciences. In 1993, Block’s show was syndicated nationwide on over 75 radio stations through the Independent Broadcasters Network. In 1996, after the owners of IBN were indicted for fraud, Block started one of the Internet’s first radio stations, RADIOSUZY1.com, where her show is still broadcast, live and taped, 24 hours a day. That year, she also hosted her first HBO special, Radio Sex TV with Dr. Susan Block, and published her third book The 10 Commandments of Pleasure: Erotic Keys to a Healthy, Sexual Life (St. Martin’s Press).

In late 1984, she met her husband-to-be Maximillian Rudolph Lobkowicz-Filangieri through KIEV. Though they became good friends, they were in relationships with other people, and didn’t get romantically involved until six years later. In 1986, Block started some of the first 976 and 900 number telephone dating, advice and fantasy lines. In 1987, Block moved her radio program to KFOX 93.5 FM, where it became less of a matchmaking show and more of a call-in talk show about sex, politics and culture with guests like Dr. Timothy Leary, John Densmore of The Doors and comedian Sam Kinison. During this time, she also contributed short stories to Dr. Lonnie Barbach’s anthologies, Pleasures, Erotic Interludes and The Erotic Encounter. She wrote the last story with Lobkowicz.

Also, in 1998, she moved her institute and production company from the “Villa Piacere” in the Hollywood Hills to “Dr. Suzy’s Speakeasy” in Downtown LA. “We call it a Speakeasy because we speak about subjects that are not so easy to speak about,” says Block. The Speakeasy Gallery of Erotic Art exhibits erotic art works from artists around the world. Block’s first gallery opening was featured on HBO’s Real Sex. The scene at Dr. Suzy’s Speakeasy is often described as “Felliniesque” and “Warholesque.”
