episode 85: I am taking a permanent hiatus from discussing porn

“Film-maker and previous award-winner Erika Lust hosted a talk and Q&A event at the awards, as she also had several films nominated this year. Lust sees her work in opposition to that of the mainstream, and wants to offer other ways of filming sex. Too often the films offer a weak setting and storyline before focussing on the sex, and one kind of sex at that. “Mainstream porn lacks creativity and a narrative...

episode 86: I am taking a permanent hiatus from doing episodes of constructive critiques of the church

“1) They threw aside God’s commandments and made the commandments of men and traditions into doctrines. (Mark 7:7-9). (2) They were more concerned with outer purity rather than the purity of the heart. Jesus said that they cleaned the inside of the cup but inside their hearts were full of wickedness! (See Luke 11:39; Matt. 23:25, 27, 28). (3) They tithed on herbs which is good but more important matters like justice and the love for God were overlooked. (See Luke 11:32; Matt. 23:23,24)...

episode 88: My permanent hiatus from discussing my church experiences

“1. A Hunger for Power & Dominance Both sociopaths and psychopaths are commonly found at the head of corporations, governments, and in positions of great power. This may be no coincidence. Sociopaths have a tendency to be power-hungry and may spend a lot of time and effort attaining positions where they can control, dominate, and have authority over others.2 Once they obtain power, they commonly misuse and abuse it in ways that are irresponsible, destructive, and harmful to others. 2...

episode 89: My permanent hiatus from discussing my Biblical concerns

“The followers of John Wycliffe undertook the first complete English translations of the Christian scriptures in the 14th century. These translations were banned in 1409 due to their association with the Lollards.[33] The Wycliffe Bible pre-dated the printing press but it was circulated very widely in manuscript form, often inscribed with a date which was earlier than 1409 in order to avoid the legal ban...

episode 90: Sexual assertiveness techniques part 1

“4. You're not counting. Whether you're doing it a few times a week or once a month, focusing on a number isn't a great way to assess your sex life, says Kristin Zeising, PsyD, a certified sex therapist in San Diego.

Compared to a control group that went about their lives as normal, those who did the deed more weren't any happier...
