More SEX WISDOM With Darrel Ray — Podcast #346 — 09/12/12

Share


Hello sex fans!

Today I welcome back, Dr. Darrel Ray, therapist, educator, lecturer and author of The God Virus and Sex and God: How Religion Distorts Sexuality to this SEX WISDOM show. And I’m so glad he has more time to spend with us, because Part 1 of our conversation, which appeared here last week, was a real revelation, no pun intended.

Darrel and I discuss:

  • The religious mythology of sex;
  • The guilt cycle;
  • Sexual maps;
  • The shift from theology to biology;
  • How sexuality once was a means of encountering the divine;
  • Cultural anthropology;
  • Making god in our image;
  • The people who inspire him and his sexual heroes.

Darrel invite you to visit his site HERE! You can also find him on Facebook HERE! And he’s on Twitter HERE!

SEX WISDOM With Darrel Ray — Podcast #345 — 09/05/12

Share


Hello sex fans! Welcome back.

Well we’re all back, safe and sound, from our late summer vacation. Although I must say, I think I could, given half a chance, easily get used to all that leisure. But there’s no rest for the wicked, don’t cha know, which is pretty ok with me because I like being wicked at lest as much as I enjoy the leisure. Besides, I have another very interesting SEX WISDOM show for you today.

I welcome the celebrated author of The God Virus and Sex and God: How Religion Distorts Sexuality. My guest is Dr. Darrel Ray. He is a psychologist and has been for 35 years. Curiously enough, he once planned on becoming a minister, but then that plan changed rather dramatically and he’s here to tell us how and why. You won’t want to miss this discussion.

Darrel and I discuss:

  • The similarities between his life voyage and mine;
  • Spirituality and the supernatural;
  • The rift between religion and sex;
  • The unstated goal of religion;
  • The toxic trio of key religious beliefs;
  • Moving from ministerial student to atheist;
  • Why religion needs information control;
  • Pioneering sexologist, Albert Ellis;
  • Atheistic humanism;
  • Sexual maps.

Darrel invite you to visit his site HERE! You can also find him on Facebook HERE! And he’s on Twitter HERE!

Hey sex fans, welcome back!

The bad boy of erotica, the extraordinarily talented, Mathew Klickstein, is back for Part 2 of our conversation for this The Erotic Mind series. Mathew has a knack for riling up folks, don’t cha know. I love that about him. There’s nothing namby pamby about this author; he speaks his mind not just eruditely, but with passion and conviction.

And since last week’s reading from his novel, Rag Doll, caused such a stir, I will insist that Mathew read again this week. You can be sure that it will leave you at least a little bit unsettled.

But wait, you didn’t miss Part 1 of this controversial conversation, did you? Well not to worry if ya did, because you can find it and all my podcasts in the Podcast Archive right here on my site.. All ya gotta do is use the search function in the header; type in Podcast #333 and Voilà! But don’t forget the #sign when you do your search.

Mathew and I discuss:

  • The reviews his new book, Rag Doll, is getting;
  • Why he hit upon horrotica his first time out as an erotica writer;
  • Erotica as fantasy;
  • Channeling his frustrations into his writing;
  • Marketing Rag Doll directly to that horror audience;
  • The cathartic value of gory horror;
  • 3rd wave feminism.

My New Book

Share

Dear friends and colleagues

I am pleased to announce the publication of my new book The Amateur’s Guide To Death And Dying: Enhancing The End Of Life.

(Click on the book art below for a synopsis and to purchase the book.)

The Amateur’s Guide To Death And Dying is specifically designed for terminally ill, chronically ill, elder, and dying people from all walks of life. But concerned family and friends, healing and helping professionals, lawyers, clergy, teachers, students, and those grieving a death will also benefit from reading the book.

The Amateur’s Guide To Death And Dying is a workbook that offers readers a unique group/seminar format. Readers participate in a virtual on-the-page support group consisting of ten other participants. Together members of the group help each other liberate themselves from the emotional, cultural, and practical problems that accompany dying in our modern age.

The Amateur’s Guide To Death And Dying helps readers dispel the myth that they are incapable of taking charge during the final season of life. Readers face the prospect of life’s end within a framework of honesty, activity, alliance, support, and humor. And most importantly readers learn these lessons in the art of dying and living from the best possible teachers, other sick, elder, and dying people.

The Amateur’s Guide To Death And Dying engages readers with a multitude of life situations and moral dilemmas that arise as they and their group partners face their mortality head on.

The Amateur’s Guide To Death And Dying offers readers a way to share coping strategies, participate in meaningful dialogue, and take advantage of professional information tailored to their specific needs. Topics include spirituality, sexuality and intimacy, legal concerns, final stages, and assisted dying. The book does not take an advocacy position on any of these topics. It does, however, advocate for the holistic self-determination of sick, elder, and dying people, which can only be achieved when they have adequate information.

Facing your mortality with the kind of support The Amateur’s Guide To Death And Dying offers does not eliminate the pain and poignancy of separation. Rather it involves confidently facing these things and living through them to the end.

This innovative workbook on death and dying is now available on Amazon and in bookstores. I welcome your thoughts, comments, and reviews.

All the best,
Richard

The Erotic Mind of Mathew Klickstein — Podcast #333 — 05/21/12

Share


Hey sex fans, welcome back!

We’re back with more of The Erotic Mind series, but today we return to our roots, the world of words. After a couple of weeks of chat with a noted erotic visual artist the series resumes with my conversation with a relative newcomer to the world of erotica. The curious thing is, in the past, when I’ve interviewed an author new to the erotica scene he or she would speak demurely of finding his or her way in this genre. Today’s guest is totally different. I have the pleasure of welcoming the extraordinarily talented, Mathew Klickstein, who’s as combative as he is accomplished.

Mathew has a unique take on the role of erotica in our culture. He is filled with the fervor of a man poised to upset the apple cart. And his new book, Rag Doll, is making big waves throughout the industry. You will soon understand why that is, because I will prevail upon Mathew to read from his new work. This will blow your socks off, don’t cha know.

Mathew and I discuss:
