Join me for this engaging and important conversation about porn, sex, masturbation, and most importantly, pleasure. I’m talking with Don Shewey, a psychotherapist, pleasure activist and author of The Paradox of Porn: Notes on Gay Male Sexual Culture.

Tune in to hear Don and I discuss:

  • His journey to being a pleasure activist and Sacred Intimate
  • The integral yet complex role pornography plays in gay men’s self-discovery
  • How porn both helps and hinders our views of our bodies, sexuality, and relationships
  • Learning to distinguish sex, porn and masturbation
  • The role of pleasure and desire in addressing issues with porn
