Comedian Paula Poundstone visited Marty Moss-Coane on Radio Times Thursday, and explained to Marty why one facet of life that is often a great source of happiness to many — sex — something that she has long been uninterested in.

Comedian Paula Poundstone wants to find the secret to happiness.  In her new book, The Totally Unscientific Study of the Search for Human Happiness, Poundstone tries all of the self-help tools available, from cleaning to exercising to meditation to charity.

She visited Marty Moss-Coane on Radio Times Thursday, and explained to Marty why one facet of life that is often a great source of happiness to many — sex — something that she has long been uninterested in. She says that her life is so busy and “the idea that I would go into my room at the end of the day and there would be someone in there with whom I would have to have an activity is just upsetting to me.”

Paula Poundstone appears Thursday night at the Free Library to talk further about her book and her career.
