Posted by on May 25, 2017 in Podcast: Sex Education | 2 comments

Masculinizing Society. Masculinizing Sex. It’s an age old story. Males win. Females lose. It happens in our society. It happens in our beds. And when it happens, everybody loses. In the East there is a way of thinking that offers us a path forward. There is a way of non-oppositional cooperation between masculine and feminine energy. Have a listen. Have better sex! Doug 1.

Religion and Sex: We’re in a Pickle

Posted by on May 11, 2017 in Podcast: Sex Education | 0 comments

Christian Sex: Doubling Down on a Bad Hand Back in the 1960s, the sexual revolution presented an opportunity to Christians. It invited us to rethink the “dirty sex” instincts we picked up back in the second century. But that’s not what happened. Instead, church folk doubled down on a bad hand. Now, fifty years later, we don’t have much moral authority to speak about the subject. If we’re going to get out this pickle, we’ll have to… 1. revisit where we went wrong, 2. recover our ancient wisdom, 3. make...

Christians and Dirty Sex: Subtle Like Cancer

Posted by on May 4, 2017 in Podcast: Sex Education | 4 comments

. Saying sex is dirty, is pretty uncool these days. So Christian folk don’t say it out loud. We’re much more subtle now. However, instincts as ancient as our dirty-sex ones, don’t go away easily. In our case, they just went underground. Which makes them harder to deal with, because we don’t see them (or their toxic results). Have a listen, Doug 1. Subscribe to the podcast:  click HERE 2.

Christians and Sex: We Owe Folks an Apology

Posted by on Apr 27, 2017 in Podcast: Sex Education | 5 comments

. We’re Sorry! Through the centuries, we Christian folk have gotten pretty twisted up about sex. Most don’t know how it happened, which makes it really hard to get untwisted when we try. But we’re trying. You’ve probably never heard of Clement of Alexandria. He died way back in the second century, but he really messed us up. He’s still messing with our heads (and our beds).

How Sex Got Dirty (Thanks a Lot, Plato!)

Posted by on Apr 20, 2017 in Podcast: Sex Education | 4 comments

Church folk have a reputation for being sexually repressed. Thank goodness it’s not always true! But unfortunately it’s true often enough. All that sexual repression came from somewhere — and Greek philosophy played a major role. If we religious folk are going to have a place at the table as our society rethinks sex education, we have to come to grips with the toxic parts of our heritage. Have a listen, Doug 1.

Talking About Sex is Tough!

Posted by on Apr 13, 2017 in Podcast: Sex Education | Comments Off on Talking About Sex is Tough!

The sexual journey is a tough one. Young folks could really use someone who has been on the journey a while. They need a road map to help them navigate what’s coming. But that’s easy to say . . . not so easy to do. There are a lot of reasons it’s tough to talk about sex. Not least, our society no longer has shared sexual norms, or a shared sexual narrative. That’s what this project is about, framing a viable narrative together, that works for us. If we succeed, we will have something helpful to offer our young people....

Going All The Way: The Sexual Journey

Posted by on Apr 6, 2017 in Podcast: Sex Education | 5 comments

. The Climax of The Sexual Journey… Doesn’t Happen During Intercourse The sexual journey culminates in our deep and primal desire to connect being fulfilled. Erotic hunger serves that deeper desire. Biology, and loneliness, and chemical madness — all serve our deeper desire to connect. Uninformed of the journey’s destination, it is easy to get lost along the way. Many do. In this podcast, we are looking at how our deepest human desires are fulfilled — and how rethinking our approach to sex education can help get...

Sex for a Lifetime: Finishing Well

Posted by on Mar 30, 2017 in Podcast: Sex Education | 3 comments

In the last several episodes, I’ve been making the case that our sexuality thrusts us forward on a journey much more expansive than the singular experience of eroticism. When we don’t see the whole picture, we limit our sexuality — which costs us. It inevitably shortchanges the full experience our sexuality offers us. Finishing well, then, demands a full understanding of the destination. Thus informed, it’s much easier to get there. Have a listen, Doug 1. Subscribe to the podcast:  click HERE 2.

Sexuality Interrupted: A Story

Posted by on Mar 23, 2017 in Podcast: Sex Education | 4 comments

There’s More to Sex Than the Orgasm Sexuality is a life-long journey encompassing a profound depth of our humanity. Over a lifetime, eroticism comes and goes. Even romantic friendship waxes and wanes. The ancient Greeks taught us an important stage on the sexual journey — that doesn’t look sexy at all. However, by ignoring it (as our culture has), we limit the full experience of the sexual journey. Have a listen, Doug 1. Subscribe to the podcast:  click HERE 2.
