Fifty Shades 2.0 – Time to Upgrade Your Kink Sexuality Knowledge Base

4 critical guidelines to follow before you explore erotic dominance and submission.   Before the movie Fifty Shades of Grey unleashes another tsunami of sexual curiosity and exploration across the globe, I want to talk about how to consensually, potently and consciously release your and your partner’s Sexy Beasts via Erotic Dominance and Submission.   Fifty Shades of Grey has over 100 million in worldwide book sales and a hyper-anticipated movie coming this week. What this indicates is that Kink oriented sex is not only on the map, there is a global explosion of interest arising in all manner of alternative sexual expression.    I have not read the books, but it seems the general consensus from anyone experienced in conscious engagement of real time Dominance/submission and BDSM ( bondage, discipline, sadism, masochism) is that the depictions of D/s-BDSM in the relationship context (D/s) and the taboo sexual context (BDSM) are generally unsafe, abusive, non-consensual, immature and unconscious interactions between the partners.   Whatever you feel the truth about the books might be, the point here is to emphasize how critically important it is to [...]

Myth, Archetype, & Symbols of D/s Relationships & BDSM Sexuality

Understanding the compelling psychological undercurrents of our most taboo sexual desires and relationship structures. Our deepest erotic fantasies are shaped from the interplay of inner mythic stories, archetypes and symbols within our sexual psyches, activated during sexual engagement. Bringing these initially subtle inner elements into conscious awareness can open us to more fully experience explosive erotic intensity, access our deepest emotions, and ultimately strengthen intimacy and trust between partners. In a committed relationship, or even for a one-time negotiated scene with a play-partner, exploring our most taboo desires in a conscious manner offers the opportunity for both empowerment and healing. The challenge can be to notice these deeper, more vivid dimensions of our fantasies, often shrouded in shame, fear or trauma, and welcome them into our sexual expressions and relationships. To help in this regard, there are certain tools and techniques you can use, that can support you in discovering and inviting in what is personally sacred, authentic and meaningful to your sexual expression. Learning to use or create your own tools, sometimes called ritual practices, can open internal psychological pathways to deepen the physical, [...]

Sex-Negative Good Men Project Bans “The Sex Positive Male”

The Good Men Project site censors any discussion of Kink, BDSM or Fetish Sexuality from my popular column. The Good Men’s Project’s views on what defines sex-positive expression by good men and women, and what does not, was made clear to me recently. They censored my featured column on GMP, The Sex Positive Male. I was told I could no longer include any content referring to D/s-BDSM, Kink or Fetishsexuality. This censorship occurred despite their editorial claim that the Good Men Project’s mission is to have “the conversation no one else is having.” They further emphasize exactly how open-minded they consider themselves to be. They declare how important it is to be open to more than one view about what constitutes good –“the question of what is good opens the door to huge philosophical implications. Where does goodness start and where does it end? Who is the judge of what is good?” Well apparently the “who” in this case are the same people, who despite the above claim, ARE afraid of having me include this particular conversation no on else is having about kink and [...]

New Sex Research Maps the Explosion of Erotic Kinks Emerging in 21st Century Sexuality

Innovative survey helps people clarify their core sexual themes and avoid erotic mismatches in relationships. The “Discover Your Personal Erotic Myth Survey” (PEM) is a tool for individuals or couples to map out the nuanced depths of their sexual desires. Once recognized, they can then learn how to fit those desires into their everyday life in a conscious, healthy, fulfilling manner. Nearly 2000 people, generally from more sex-positive and sex-alternative populations have taken the survey so far. The results are eye-opening and reveal the great depths and variations of sexuality that are emerging in the contemporary world. My experience working with client's demonstrates that knowing your Personal Erotic Myth can open you to unimagined sexual ecstasy, deepen intimacy in your relationships, and help you avoid disastrous erotic mismatches in long term relationships. And since it is Adult Sex Ed Month, what better reason could you need to check deeper into your own kinks. A PEM contains the fantasy imagery, story-lines, mythic archetypal personas (such as Dom/sub Master/Mistress slave and many more), and the particular enactments that drive a person that has a PEM to orgasm, or other deep erotic states. It is often [...]

Is the Problem Sex/Porn Addiction or Sexual Dishonesty?

How to Get Honest About Your Own Sexual Norm --- There is a long unending stream of national news reports about politicians, teachers, religious leaders, entertainers, sports figures and other celebrities, caught in some variation of sexual dishonesty. Pundits and experts often label the behaviors, and the fall from grace that follows, the result of sex addiction. These cases are just the visible tip of the iceberg of our collective sexual shadow, and the secretive ways we attempt to express our sexuality. These highly publicized celebrity cases point to, but overlook a larger issue of rampant sexual dishonesty that is found at every level of the culture. These cases are just the visible tip of the iceberg of our collective sexual shadow, and the secretive ways we attempt to express our sexuality. Imagine all the rest of the population that are indulging their sexuality in covert ways. The stats are astronomical! Based on keyword searches for affairs, visits to hook-up sites like Craigslist ads and Ashley Madison themed websites, not to mention all the secret porning by men and women both, our level of sexual [...]

How to Welcome Your Male Sex Creature

5 keys to being a sexually authentic, conscious and empowered man. --- Being sexually authentic is your birthright. Sharing your deepest sexual truths with a trusted partner is one of the most loving, liberating, intimate and ecstatic of human experiences. Many men hide authentic aspects of their sexual desire…for good reason! Our sex-negative culture, family, religions and even our relationships often deny men a safe, welcoming place to honor and discuss the full spectrum of their sexual desires. They seldom honor, bless and respect any but the narrowest view of acceptable sexual practice or frequency. In fact, the tangible fear of being shamed, harshly judged, or of losing partners, family or friends can leave many men secretive or shadowy about their true sexual desire. Some men are so deep in shame and guilt they can’t get past the fear of speaking openly about their desires to those closest to them. Some men can become consumed by fantasy, masturbation or porn rather than risk openly expressing what’s true to their partners…or even to themselves. Many men were emotionally wounded (shamed or terrorized) as boys around their [...]
