But this holiday season, we're going to try! The Woodhull Sexual Freedom Alliance works year round to help bring the dream of sexual freedom closer to fruition. Now we need your support. We are crowdfunding to built a stronger infrastructure to support our plans for future growth and greater visibility. How much do sex, gender, and reproductive justice mean to you? Join my team at the Woodhull Sexual Freedom Alliance's Holiday Fund-Raising Challenge on CrowdRise.
Updated 11/20 -- listen to Hardy Haberman and me discuss the holiday drive.
Picking up where I left off the other day on the value of male bonding and the importance of letting men know it's okay to be affectionate and physically warm.
Alas, Jen couldn't join me since she's got the same headcold as me. She's trailing me by a couple of days so is currently at the pinnacle of bronchial ugliness, poor thing. But I bravely forged on without her! I think it's one of the better shows I've done thus far -- what do you think?
It was dawn before I hit the sack last night, still catching up after a week away, and I woke early to give an interview to Women's Health magazine about male sexual arousal (yeah, it does not suck to be me), then fell back into a coma for a bit, but I'm finally able to spend some blog time with you.
Thought I'd start with some photos from the event, shot by Louis Shackleton, our fabulous official photog.
I podcasted continuously during afternoon workshops, and got to speak with some of the sexiest, brightest minds working in sex today. Here I am with "professional sex geek," Reid Mihalko.
I was delighted to interview a woman who is my new hero, Carmen Vasquez. Carmen delivered a brilliant and deeply moving keynote speech this year. She was the spirit of sexual freedom incarnate! The excitement and emotion her speech elicited from the audience was palpable.
It was pretty exhausting yet I felt like I could go on and on, because the topics were fascinating and the people inspiring. I can't even recall who I was interviewing here (I think that's Ricci Levy's sleeve!) but each new person was filled with energy, optimism, and commitment to the cause of establishing sexual freedom as a fundamental human right. It was like protein for my brain!
It was an honor and a joy that my friend Hardy Haberman, Chairman of the Woodhull Sexual Freedom Alliance Board, listen in on many of the podcasts and, of course, my faithful Jennifer was always by my side to lend moral support (and fetch a whole lot of coffee-on-demand). Here they are listening intently to one of the interviews.
And boi did they keep me busy in my role as Social Media Diva for the Summit. After doing so many podcasts at the Sexual Freedom Summit, I feel like I could podcast in my sleep now. Here's a photo by Louis Shackleton of Seduction Photography (official photographer for the event) of me interviewing one of the many caring activists and sexual freedom fighters who dropped by my Social Media station.
