In our post Sensual Research Dates – Part 1, Rebekah talked about how she got into this unique method of expanding one’s sexuality. It took us a while, but Part 2 is a ten minute video that really gets into the How-to.

In this use of the word, Man, I’m not talking about simply growing up and adulting, though that is part of it. In this case, I’m talking about what it means to be a Man in this world, as opposed to what society told me I shouldn’t be. I was born in ’73 and so was right in the middle of the ’80s when puberty set in and had it’s way with me. That was the decade of Pop Music, hair bands, and of course AIDS. I grew up in the South (southern USA) and the long hair trend of pop culture for men was directly against the norms for the heterosexual mainstream I was surrounded by. Those around me were vocal about what wasn’t considered manly, but I was never told how to be a man.
It was in the Fall of 2014 that I first began attending events facilitated by
Pleasure Evolution. I was struck by the vast difference between traditional social events and the structured methods taught at the workshop I attended. I was also taken with the confidence and charisma of it’s founder Rebekah Beneteau. It didn’t take long before I was volunteering to help and then was invited to chair an event. The themes of sex positivity and living an authentic life spoke volumes to me. I was not only intrigued but delighted about the prospect of working with Pleasure Evolution.
My educational background was primarily in Philosophy, but humanity had always fascinated me. I was in constant awe at the similarities and differences we all had and how they were expressed. I became ordained as a non-denominational minister the summer after university and made my spiritual growth a priority. I believe that one can learn from life as well as books and so make a practice of doing both. By the time I joined Pleasure Evolution,
We made this video last week for our Youtube channel PleasureEvolutionTV, to share some thoughts on how to have a great sex-life whether you have a partner or not.
I bet you were thinking, “this is going to be a post about letting go of a past lover.” It’s not. It’s my ruminations about what happens as relationships evolve. When we meet someone, we fall in love with who they are and how we feel when we are with them. It’s delicious, delirious fun. And if you are anything like me, you think the bliss will go on forever. Or at least you hope it does. Isn’t that what the stories promise, happily ever after?
And then somebody or some thing changes. If you are polyamorous, it
could be the emergence of a new lover, with all the new relationship energy (NRE) that comes from that.
It could be a change in the state of one of the existing relationships. Many things affect both poly and monogamous relationships. Aging, stress, health issues, family or job responsibilities. Maybe your partner develops a new passion for a hobby, or religion, or kink. And you find yourself wondering where the person you originally fell in love with went.
