Valentine’s Day

So Valentine’s day is Friday. This holiday is usually associated with romantic love or bloody massacres (or both!) I’m kinda a romantic at heart. I love the support, smooching, touching and physical and emotional intimacy that romantic love can provide. I’m also aware that romantic love is culturally loaded and full of unrealistic expectations. Valentine’s […]

Reboot

It’s been a particularly challenging week and I realized that I needed an evening to be in my body and let go of my mental noise. I made a date with myself for the evening. I’ve found that I need to schedule time for myself lately; yes, it’s a strange feeling for me to schedule […]

Alternate Realities

”If you don’t think that human beings are hard-wired to seek altered states of consciousness, just watch a group of children spinning around in circles and falling to the ground.” I don’t remember where I first read this, but it’s so true. I remember back in fourth grade when we would play spinning and hold […]

What’s Normal?

In a text I used the phrase ‘back to normal’ and got a reply of ‘Normal? What’s that? It’s been so long.’ That got me pondering what really is normal. When it comes to sex, intimacy and connection normal is a loaded term; it essentially means how others want us to behave. That’s not authentic; […]

Slow Erotic Self Massage

The most common area I help men with around our masturbation practice is learning how to slow down. We’re conditioned to go fast and furious. We learn this when we’re younger and many of us keep with this same speed throughout the years. Slowing down is one of the simplest things we can do to enhance our […]

Advice From A Masturbation Coach

I wrote this for men’s site that focuses, among other things, on our sexuality. I thought I’d share it here too… Yes, I coach men on how to make masturbation a more satisfying experience. Wait a sec, isn’t this something that most men are pretty accomplished at? Actually I believe that many of us need […]

May is National Masturbation Month

Best I can tell National Masturbation Month was started by Good Vibrations back in 1995. According to the GV website: Earlier that year, then-Surgeon General Dr. Joycelyn Elders was fired for saying that masturbation should be discussed as part of young peoples’ sex education. We were astounded. It was one of the most sensible things we’d […]

The Sacred and The Profane

Life is full of paradoxes. I’m very much in tune with the spiritual side of sex. For me, sex is most often a highly spiritual experience that offers me an opportunity to be grateful for the body I’m in. I’m aware that sex is a gift that offers many possibilities for connection with others and […]

Conscious Eros

Conscious Eros “Success isn’t the result of spontaneous combustion. You must set yourself on fire.” I saw this on a t-shirt someone was wearing at O’Hare airport while I was changing planes over the weekend. I was coming back from Easton Mountain where I was part of an amazing team of men leading a week […]
