Hello sex fans! Welcome back.

June is indeed bustin’ out all over. And that can mean only one thing here at Dr Dick’s Sex Advice. IT’S LGBT PRIDE MONTH! Hurray!

Benjamin Law-1

To kick off our celebration we’re gonna take an audio fieldtrip to the land down under to visit with one of the most interesting men I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. And seeing this is the SEX WISDOM show, you can be certain that my guest is among the movers and shakers in the field of human sexuality. Because this is the series where we meet researchers, educators, clinicians, pundits and philosophers who are helping us take a fresh look at our sexual selves.

My guest is none other than Benjamin Law, the author of the critically acclaimed book, Gaysia; Adventures in the Queer East. Benjamin is a journalist, columnist, and screenwriter. And has a Ph.D. in television writing and cultural studies, don’t cha know. His passion is evident in all he does, but he is also funny as all get out. I can’t wait for you to meet him.

Benjamin and I discuss:

  • His way with words;
  • Cleis Press, his North American Publisher;
  • His international audience;
  • Modern gay consciousness is linked to a certain economic class;
  • Bad reviews;
  • Sex tourism;
  • Living on the sexual fringe;
  • His travels throughout south Asia;
  • Religion, family responsibilities, and sexual minorities;
  • Sex work can come from a place of pride or from a place of desperation;
  • The double standard for women and men.

I’m going to make sure that Benjamin reads from Gaysia; Adventures in the Queer East, so you won’t want to miss that.

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.

Podcast #131 – 06/17/09

Hey sex fans,

Buckle your seatbelts, my friends, because Monk is in the house.  That’s Monk of TwistedMonk.com, don’t cha know.  He is located here in Seattle, but his reputation, well APR07COTMthat’s international.  You’ve seen him all over the freakin’ internet — on his websites, on youtube and twitter; you’ve seen him at the Seattle Erotic Arts Festival; and today you see…well hear him right here on Dr Dick’s Sex Advice.  Monk is the consummate bondage performance artist, who is nearly as thrilling to listen to, as he is to watch.

This incredibly sexy and oh so entertaining bondage artist adds his voice to this Sex EDGE-U-cation series.   As you know, in these podcasts, we’re looking at the world of fetish sex, kink and alternative sexual lifestyles.  We chat with prominent educators, practitioners and advocates of unconventional sexual expressions and lifestyles from all over the world.

Oh, and here’s something you should know.  Monk is gonna try and convince us that Twisted Monk does not describe him, but rather is simply the name of his company.  Well I beg to differ, sex fans.  I mean, please!  As you will soon hear, this boy is as twisted as his company’s name implies.

Monk and I discuss:

  • The Pacific Northwest’s history as a hotbed of perversion.
  • Twisted Monk, the oldest and largest bondage rope factory in the world.
  • His mentor, Max of BondageLessons.com.
  • How he came to be know and Monk.
  • Monk the performance artist and The Bindings Project.
  • The high of being the bondage top.

Monk invites you to enter his world HERE!
