BONUS: Feelings, Sex & Queer Hollywood - Celebrating Season 1

episodes show notes Jul 31, 2020
 
 

Hello GerleMen listeners!

I want to thank you for listening to the premiere season of the GerleMen Podcast as we wrap up Season 1.

On the show, we explored everything from “feelings” to “sex” to “spirituality” to “queer Hollywood” all sprinkled with the reality of the COVID-19 pandemic and a resurgence of social justice with Black Lives Matter protests.

A special highlight for me personally was the episode with my Momon Father where he told us about ‘loving-kindness.'

When this all started, I had no idea what was involved with producing a podcast. There were technical struggles. Like building an entire studio to host guests in-studio (only to have COVID-19 arrive the same month we started doing interviews), sorting out all the hardware and software, and then there was the content -- what were we going to talk about?

But that’s when our mission kicked in, lighting the path towards our desire to foster heart-centered...

EP017: Being a Man: Let's Talk About Sex

episodes show notes Jul 24, 2020
 

I need to get honest with you about sex.

Because I love it, and believe that celebrating mindful, “conscious sex” is essential for gay men’s dignity. 

My last "Being A Man," or BAM, episode was about moving from oppression to celebration; and I barely mentioned sex at all.

After a long discussion with my boyfriend regarding my struggle writing that episode, I realized that I had let my socialized, American, fear about sex, launch me into a clumsy, diatribe about fear itself, and my fear of just talking about what I really want.

So let’s talk about the sex we have and the reasons we can celebrate it.

After all, it just makes sense for a podcast “for gay men” to address the one and only thing that all gay men have in common, the urge to merge, the passion that surges in our balls, our gut, our brains, and our hearts, to seek out and touch other men, intimately.


We talked about:

  • Consent [6:25]
  • Sex and Relationships...

EP016: The Union of Sex & Spirit with Yogi Joel Benjamin

episodes show notes Jul 17, 2020
 
 

Today’s conversation with Joel our first deep dive into the connection sex and spirituality.

Joel helps us try on the ancient Tantra concept that everything about our experience on earth is spiritual -- including our sexual energy.

Prior to the pandemic, I visited Joel’s gorgeous studio in Seattle where I learned to celebrate, cultivate, and conserve my own lower chakra energy. The experience was an embodiment of transforming crotch-centered connections into a heart-centered community. 

Enjoy the show.


We talked about:

  • Tantra yoga [7:53]
  • Union of sex and spirit [17:13]
  • 3 Cs of sexual energy [27:39]
  • Who takes these classes? [40:31]
  • Special Gifts [47:33]
