In this show, part two of two, I continue my conversation with Galen Fous, a 70 year old kink-positive therapist, author, educator and sex researcher who self-identifies as a heterosexual, dominant erotic sadist. In this show Galen explains a bit more about his sexual identity, plus we talk about how to have good, healthy sex in the second half of life.
In this show, part one of two, I speak with Galen Fous, a 70 year old man, kink-positive therapist, author, educator and sex researcher. We talk about his journey of reclaiming his own sexual power, and in doing so finally feeling witnessed, seen, and loved. He developed a profound sense of trust and depth of intimacy he would have never experienced without some courageous personal honesty, something I’d like to think we all develop as we move into the second half of our lives.
I talk with Boomer Wendy Cobina Demos, founder of the Sacred Sexual Music Festival and JuicyYouJuicyMe about sex, dating and relationships in the second half of life.
Hemp advocate Daniel Roberto Ortega and I discuss what should people in the second half of life should know about this plant and its medical and euphoric effects, the variety of ways to use it, how it is helping veterans and others with pain and trauma, as well as some things to be careful of. The interview is chock full of useful information for anyone who has never tried cannabis or for those who tried years ago but might want to try again.
In this second and final part of my interview with death ritual photographer Klaus, we talk about food. That’s right! When the living come together, even for a funeral, food is often and important part of that ritual.
Danish photographer Klaus Bo chronicles death rituals from around the world, including Greenland, Haiti, Madagascar, Ghana, India, Indonesia and Nepal. I was so absorbed by tales of Haitian voodoo rituals, chicken caskets from Ghana, and Indonesian funeral feasts that I had to break this interview into two parts!
