Have You Seen SEX?

Published

on

Where do you go to learn about sex?  Pornhub?  Your doctor?  That one friend who gets lube in bulk from Costco?  If you have questions about sex then you are in luck, Dr. Karen Rayne, Ph.D. and Sam Killermann’s show, “Have You Seen SEX,” will answer all your burning questions and then some.  The show is: part sex ed, part comedy, Q & A and BYOB…so you cannot go wrong with that.  Since it is Halloween, this show is a special costume edition.  Audience members are encouraged to come in costume.  I have known Karen for a while and was excited to talk with her about this upcoming show as well as her work as a sexuality educator.

What gave you and Sam the idea to put together “Have You Seen SEX?”

It’s a great story! If you come to see the show, you’ll see that we have three giant marquis letters behind us on stage: SEX. These letters were originally made by a conservative church near me to promote their narrow-minded sermon series as “fun”! I dropped in to see what the sermons were actually like and offered to buy the letters before I left. Months passed. I forgot about the letters. Then one day I got the call…and I knew that something big was happening, but I wasn’t sure what yet.

I’d been talking with Sam about how to reach out to adults who never really got a complete sex education themselves. These letters led us to creating a fun, sexy, date-night atmosphere that I think really works.

What can people expect from the show?

Our tag line is Learning, Laughing, Lasciviousness, which I think summarizes it very well!

The slightly longer explanation is that Sam is a comedian and I am an educator. We take turns teaching and making people laugh.

Every show has a theme, and this time it’s Halloween and costumes, so Sam will be telling appropriate stories and I will be showing a history of how All Hallows Eve and Dia de los Muertos turned into Sexy Ebola Nurse.

What makes sex a taboo topic for some people?

It’s all of the penises.

Not really. It’s actually about control. If you’re able to control sex, you’re able to control people and so our religions and our governments have worked hard to push sex off into the taboo in order to manipulate people.

What is the worst sex advice you’ve heard?

“Don’t want to get pregnant? Put an Aspirin between your knees.”

How did you get started in your field?

I got started through education and being an adolescent activist for adolescent rights. I thought that the way our culture treated teenagers was insulting – I still think that – and I thought I’d change it by going into education. Then, my last semester of college when I started working in the public schools – I ran away screaming and realized I had to go higher. I thought I’d go into policy or research or something, so I went back for my PhD. But neither academia nor policy were right for me. I landed in sex ed kind of by accident, but it’s been a happy, happy accident! I have the best job in the world! It increasingly takes me all over the world and helps makes the world a better, gentler, kinder, more accepting place for people young and old. How can you get a better job than that??

You recently had a book published, what has that been like?

It’s been fantastic! Sam, in addition to working with me on S.E.X., was my publisher for Breaking the Hush Factor: Ten Rules for Talking with Teenagers about Sex, and anything I do with Sam is always fun!

What has been the most meaningful to me is when parents read my book and drop me a note letting me know how it influenced them, how they have become kinder and gentler parents, how their dialogue with their teenagers about sex has started to flourish.

What is the biggest myth about sex?

Bigger is always better.

As anyone who likes to be penetrated and who talks with other people who like to be penetrated should know, there are a range of preferences around size. It’s fine to be a size queen – and it’s fine to prefer girth over length or length over girth or something smaller altogether.

What fetish are you most fascinated by and why?

What an interesting question!

I am more fascinated by people’s reactions to fetishes that they are just learning about than I am by the individual fetishes themselves. The range of reactions from “WHAT??? NO.” to “Tell me more…” That for some people a vibrator is considered racy and unexpected and for others it’s electric play and ball busting.

Humans are pretty cool creatures, and the range of ways that we’ve collectively figured out how to be sexy is fascinating on all levels.

What makes for great sex?

Attention to detail. Emotional intelligence. Equity rather than equality. Great sex is about being able to read your partner and communicate with your partner and provide for each other in the way(s) that you each prefer, whether those are the same or different.

What has it been like to work with the United Nations on the topic of sexual education?

A great honor. The work that people are doing around the world and under very different circumstances that we have here in the US is pretty amazing. My current take-away is that I cannot work on a global scale if I don’t speak at least two languages. I speak a little German and a little Spanish – so I’m currently bulking up on my Spanish. I don’t know if I’ll return to German when I feel like I’m ready for a third or move on to another altogether…

What should people look for in a sex toy?

Something that makes them happy. Whether it’s from Home Depot or Fun Factory, they should smile when they see it.

What do you think about PrEP?

It’s amazing. I can’t imagine what else anyone would say about it. Sure, there are issues with access and education and all sorts of other things, but the strides it’s taking us forward in preventing HIV transmission are extraordinary.

Remember what it was like at the beginning of the HIV horrors of the 80’s. Think about And The Band Played On and Philadelphia and Gia. Think about that world…and the world we have now with PrEP. In many ways I see PrEP as an indicator of how far we’ve come, in technology, awareness, advocacy, acceptance, and science, the fight against HIV and AIDS.

Does sex influence technology or does technology influence sex?

Yes.

What do you think sex education for high school students should include?

It would be easier to ask what it should NOT include, and the answer to that question is nothing. There are National Sex Education Standards, which are great if you’d like to get into specifics. (www.futureofsexed.org/documents/josh-fose-standards-web.pdf)

What advice would you give to parents before they talk to their teens about sex?

Well, I have ten rules that I outline in my book – so those are my favorite ones, of course. The ten rules in full are here: http://www.breakingthehushfactor.com/the-ten-rules-for-talking-with-teenagers-about-sex/, but if you don’t have the time to head over to the website, here’s a primer:

  • Know yourself.
  • It’s not about you.
  • Stop talking.
  • Start listening.
  • You get one question.
  • Do something else.
  • Pleasure and pain.
  • Be cool as a cucumber.
  • Bring it on.
  • Never surrender.

There’s more to each of those, of course, but you’ll have to read the book to get the details!

What are the best books on sex?

Oh! There are so many! I just can’t even…okay. Here’s a few of my top loves:

Maybe they aren’t all about sex, but they are all critical to understanding sexuality at this time and place that we live.

What is your current favorite sexual topic to study?

I tend to pick a side topic to sexuality and study it for a few years and then move on to something else. I was deeply engaged in the physiology of reproduction and HIV for a long time. Before that it was the anthropology of human sexual activities. More recently I’ve been reading about racism. Sexuality and race are deeply intertwined in our history and in our current experience of both things. Learning about that has been eye-opening and has encouraged me to become actively engaged in the racism present in the field of sexuality education.

Have You Seen SEX? will be a entertaining and educational night.  If you are interested in going here are the details:

Revamp Your Sex Life: 5 Tips To Reignite the Eroticism In Your Relationship

Published

on

#1 Self-Care-You Have To Feel Good To F*@K Good

It is hard to turn yourself on for sex if you don’t feel good about yourself.  There is a myth in our culture that our partner’s job is to turn us on, when in reality we have to feel good about ourselves to turn ourselves on. Think about it like this, let’s say you go on a week long camping trip where there are no showers, changes of clothes, or toiletries. Upon your return to civilization you are provided an all-you-can eat sushi spread. So, after you engorge yourself, you get home and walk into your living room. Standing before you is the person you find most attractive in the world, let’s say it’s Rob Lowe (because he is so pretty that he seems to cause people to bend their notions of their own sexual orientation). Rob says to you, “drop those drawers and let’s do this.”  Now, consider how difficult it might be to feel erotic smelling like a mixture of pit stank and pine cones while the rice bloat builds a home in your stomach. In that moment it would be challenging for many people to turn themselves on, and Rob’s blue eyes and forgiving bone structure would understand. One way to bring eroticism back into your relationship is to practice self-care.  That could mean exercising, spa treatments, eating healthier; whatever helps you feel good about being in your own body. This is not about getting dolled up, trying to morph yourself into what you think your partner might want you to look like; it is about feeling comfortable in your own skin. You have to manage the stressors in your life so that you feel open to sexual exploration.  If you’re comfortable in your own body, then it is easier to share that body with another person.

#2 Sexting-It’s Not Just For Horny Teenagers

In making a life with another person it can be easy to become so comfortable with them that they shift from being a desired muse who once brought out your sexual explorer to a background noise that distracts you from watching that episode of “30 Rock” on Netflix for the 8th time. So, if you have a general fondness for each other but have lost your erotic love, you can work on rediscovering it via sexting. (Just a side note here, if you and your love do not have a foundation of friendship and appreciation established, then focus on liking each other again before jumping into dick pics and words that make angels blush.) Sexting provides a platform where you can talk to your partner about what excites you sexually; a topic of conversation that people aren’t always able to easily have. Sexting allows for you to get creative and use words and pictures to reconnect with your partner’s eroticism and your own.  An eggplant emoji can mean much more than an “eggplant” when you’re sexting.  What is great about sending sexually explicit messages to a partner is that they can be sent and received at any time.  It can give you time to consider what you might want to send allowing more room for exploration and playfulness than sitting face to face and stating what you want in the moment.  Sexting helps to spark anticipation and curiosity. (Pro tip: if you choose to sext with your partner, consider locking your phone so that other folks might not stumble across your personal Danielle Steel novel.)

#3 Sex Is Much More Than An Orgasm

If sex is simply about climax, then we could just masturbate next to our partners to complete the mission. Orgasm is a ridged goal; and when it is not achieved it can lead to a number of difficult feelings and thoughts about yourself and your relationship.  What if the goal of sex was to explore yourself and your partner?  What if sex was about being present in the moment with your partner, and orgasm was simply the possible gravy of that interaction (pun certainly intended).  When couples are able to expand their understanding of sex they experience more freedom and connection.  Exploration isn’t about achieving a goal, it is about curiosity and wonder; allowing folks to take healthy risks so they might uncover more about their own sexual desires and those of their partner.  When sex is less about climax and more about exploration and intimacy in its many forms (physical, emotional, mental, spiritual), it has more freedom to develop.

#4 Life Gets Busy So Plan Frisky Times

One thing I often hear from folks who have lost the eroticism in their relationship is that they are too busy to find time for sex, to which I say: plan it.  Now you may be thinking, “Adam, I am not going to write down ‘6pm: ride the bologna pony’ in my Google calendar”, which is great because that might create a great deal of pressure to perform.  What I recommend is to set aside time for physical exploration, which could be anything from a massage to making out.  This takes the pressure off of the moment while allowing for new connections with your partner.  Even if you are only able to steal ten minutes from most days in your week, those ten minutes can stoke your desire; and when there is more time for connection it will be more intense due to all of the antici- … say it … -pation.  You might have to get a baby-sitter or forgo a choir practice on Sunday morning, but in the end your relationship will reap the benefits of eroticism.

#5 Take A Field-trip to A Sex Shop

A fun way to spark up a conversation about your sexual desires with your partner is to visit a sex shop together.  Talk about what looks intriguing and fun while noting what might be outside of your sexual template.  Exploring a sex shop together can offer you a chance to interact with products, try on merchandise and even learn a thing or two. Q Toys offers workshops on topics such as rope bondage; that is a surefire way to strike up a sex-tastic dialogue.  A trip to a sex shop can help break up the routine that you have settled into while allowing for a new and exciting purchase to find its way into your play.

Throughout the lifetime of a relationship, sex is bound to wax and wane, but the flame of desire does not need to stay out. If you have difficulty talking about sex with your partner then therapy can offer a safe space to work towards the erotic connection you are hoping to create.  In therapy, you can gain support, perspective and insight so that you can rekindle your erotic love.

Sex Addiction Or A Good Time: A Conversation With Sexpert Robert Weiss On Gay Male Sexuality

Published

on

Recently I attended the second annual Contemporary Relationships Conference held here in Austin.  The conference focused on topics specific to LGBTQ+ relationships and families; and this year the keynote speaker was Robert Weiss, LCSW, CSAT-Supervisor.  Weiss is an expert on addictions (he is the Senior Vice President of Clinical Development with Elements Behavioral Health) and technology.  His book, “Cruise Control: Understanding Sex Addiction in Gay Men” is already in its second edition.  Being a straight-friendly therapist, who works with clients around sexual functioning, I was ecstatic that Weiss agreed to sit down with me and speak about his work after his presentation.

When we sat down to talk about sex addiction and gay men, the first thing we acknowledged was how challenging it can be to talk about this topic because of stigma.  Many gay men have experiences of the world trying to make them feel shame for simply loving other men.  Laws, religion and families are only some of the sources of judgment.  Once a man develops pride and overcomes the irrationality of internalized shame, it can be difficult to have any discussions about healthy sexuality because those conversations echo of past judgement.

As a sex-positive person, I believe that sex can be healthy, good and fun in its many forms.  From monogamous to open, alone or in groups, vanilla to kink; do your own thing.  As long as it is consensual (animals and minors are unable to consent), non-coercive, and connecting (you to yourself or your partners).  So the first question Weiss and I explored is:

What is sexual addiction and what is a good time?

Weiss explained that he is also sex positive and that there are a number of indicators that distinguish sexual addiction from a healthy sexual appetite.  One factor is a person’s functioning.  Is the person able to have the life he wishes to have or is sex a hindrance to his goals?  For example, if a career-driven individual is consistently unable to accomplish duties at work because he is compulsively cruising Grindr then his functioning may be a concern.  Weiss went on to note that sexual addiction usually includes: shame, secrecy, hiding, self-hatred and denial.  Elements that are not typically a part of a healthy sexuality.  A man who struggles to keep commitments with friends because he gets caught up edging himself to porn in his free time will likely hide his behavior when talking to his friends about the reason for his absence.  Where healthy sexuality is about connecting to ourselves or our partners, sexual addiction is about escaping difficult feelings through obsessing about sex and acting on that obsession.  Successful treatment of sexual addiction is not about stopping sex or becoming a eunuch; according to Weiss the goal is sexual integrity.  That means feeling good about the sex we have with our partners and ourself with limited impediment of our professional and personal pursuits.

In his book, “Cruise Control: Understanding Sex Addiction in Gay Men” Weiss noted technology’s role in increasing the number of sex addicts. Prior to the internet there where a number of steps and risks involved in obtaining pornography.  A person would have to drive to sex shops where he would risk being seen and need to have money to purchase or rent materials.  Over time, pornography and dating sites (including apps) became more easily accessible (thank you smartphones) at little to no cost, while offering users anonymity.  This has increased number of people struggling with sexual addiction.  Weiss told me during our interview that we’d see an increase in cocaine addiction if one day every medicine cabinet in America magically had free cocaine in it.  Since technology has lead to more sexual addiction, I wondered:

How technology might help those in recovery from sex addiction?

Weiss noted how technology has made it easier for people to connect with each other, as well as resources to manage sexual addiction.  Folks in recovery from sexual addiction are able to maintain a consistent core support group via technology (such as Skype) no matter where their lives might take them. Recovery in rural areas is easy when a person doesn’t have to drive two hours to a larger city to attend a Sex Addicts Anonymous meeting.

As we finished up our chat I was interested in any new work that might be interesting.  Weiss recommended keeping an eye out for a book from his colleague, Lauren Costine, PhD called “Urge To Merge.”  He also noted that folks should check out the Global Pride Summit which is free online.

My hope is that people are able to have fulfilling sex, in any of its many wonderful forms.  If you think that you might be struggling with developing a healthy sex life consider talking with a therapist.  When guilt, shame and judgement are removed from exploration, you might just find the kind of sex for which you’ve been searching.
