FacebookTwitterGoogle+PinterestTumblrShare

Hey sex fans,

This here is a SEX WISDOM podcast, don’t cha know. The series where we chat with researchers, educators, clinicians, pundits and philosophers who are making news and reshaping how we look at our sexual selves. And today I have something astonishing for you. What if I told you I could introduce you to someone who, through his photography, chronicled our cultural history for the better part of last half-century and is still doing so today? And since a huge part of our cultural history is our sex history, he is the ideal guest for this series.

My guest is none other than Andrew Epstein, photographer, artist, illustrator, art director and cultural raconteur. He is here to chat with us about his life’s work; the people he’s known (and loved) who have changed the course of our society. Among them; Richard Schmiechen, Edmond White, Teri Garr, Roger Ebert, Ann Landers Bette Midler, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Robert Mapplethorpe, Mary Kay Place, Ann Bannon, Grace Jones, Margo St. James, Jeff Bridges, Fred Halstead, Tom of Finland, Leonard Matlovich and Peter Allen. This conversation is not to be missed!

Sex Wisdom with Mark Zedler – Podcast #187 – 02/24/10

Hey sex fans,

I have some absolutely fascinating SEX WISDOM in store for you today. This is just the second installment in this new podcast series. We’re all about connecting with some of the movers and shakers in the field of human sexuality. We’re talking with researchers, educators, clinicians, pundits and philosophers who are making news and reshaping how we look at our sexual selves.

My guest today is Mark Zedler. He’s a sex historian, don’t cha know. And he’s here to help us demythologize some of our culture’s sexual taboos. He believes, as do I, that once we have a historical perspective, we are less likely to be manipulated by those who want to keep us from the truth. This is very interesting stuff, sex fans! Please stay tuned.

Mark and I discuss:

  • Being a sex historian.
  • Exploring the origins of sexual taboos and myths.
  • The history of the Bacchanalia — its zenith, persecution and downfall.
  • What this story tells us about what happens.
  • The resurgence of sacred sexuality.
  • The Sin of Sodom.
  • Comparing ancient Hebrew and early Christian interpretations.

Mark invites you to visit him on his site HERE! Explore themes like alternative lifestyles, erotica, adult humor, taboos and the history of sex.

Mark put together a little slide show for you

Sex EDGE-U-cation with Tony Buff – Podcast #168 – 11/18/09

Hey sex fans,

Did you miss me last week?  I know, I know; it was beyond my control.  Sorry to disappoint.  But, to make it up to you, I have the real deal for you today.  That’s right, we’re gonna get some mighty impressive Sex EDGE-U-cation from one of the luminaries of gay porn.  I’m talkin big, big star here people, and that’s both literally and figuratively, if ya catch my drift.tonyBuff_20091114_08

I have the pleasure of welcoming a tireless activist, compelling educator, masterful rigger and superb Dom.  He also directs as well as performs in his signature line of critically acclaimed fetish movies. He is the one and only Tony Buff.

If you know anything about BDSM, rope bondage or power play, you will probably know his name.  And if you are a connoisseur of cutting edge smut, well then, I know you are a huge fan of this amazing man, just like me.

Tony brings the same intensity and focus of his on screen performances to this interview.  And he adds his unique voice to the ever-growing chorus of prominent educators, practitioners and advocates of unconventional sexual expressions and lifestyles that is this podcast series.

Tony and I discuss:

  • Body double, or just a cock double?
  • The Pacific Northwest as a hotbed of perversion.
  • His on screen persona being the same as his off screen persona.
  • How he got his start in porn.
  • The workshops he and Derek da Silva present together.
  • His mentors — Max and Monk.
  • His collaboration with Titan Media, The Rough Line.
  • Challenges, opportunities and the future of porn.
  • The bareback phenomenon.
  • A More Nuanced Position.

Be sure to visit Tony on his kick-ass site HERE!

Hey sex fans,

I have something truly extraordinary in store for you.  As you know this Sex EDGE-U-cation podcast series takes a look at the world of fetish sex, kink and alternative lifestyles. We touch on topics both familiar and exotic.  And I chat with prominent smilewatermarkededucators, practitioners and advocates of unconventional sexual expressions and lifestyles from all over the world.

Well then, today, we add yet another unique voice to this growing chorus.  I have the distinct pleasure of introducing you to my special guest, the beautiful, talented and oh so smart, Sophie Hirschfeld.  She is a plus-sized model, a stripper, a camgirl, a phone sex actress and a writer.  But I think she’s best described as a philosopher of sex.  Oh, I should also mention that she is absolutely hilarious too.

We will be talking about her career as a sex worker, as an activist and as an educator.  You don’t want to miss a moment of this, sex fans!

Sophie and I discuss:

  • Where sex and science collide.
  • Magnus Hirschfeld and Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette.
  • Being an erotic entertainer.
  • Which is the oldest profession?
  • Getting into the sex industry.
  • Economic considerations of sex work.
  • Sex work on the front lines of sex education.
  • Her sex work and her intimate relationships.
  • The power of dirty words.
