5 thoughts on “#001 – What is Secular Sexuality?”

  1. Enjoyed the podcast. Just wanted to share my definition of a Fundasexual. I first heard the term used by author Brian McLaren in one of books. I came up with my own definition. Fundasexual: Someone who seeks to shame and humiliate anyone who does no conform to a strict code of sexual conduct found in the Bible and promoted by fundamentalist Christians. Fundasexuals believe in the notion that Adam and Eve were married in the garden and represent all of human sexuality in both form and function. They actively prompt their agenda to force everyone into hetrosexual marriages and gender role conformity. Their latest strategy is to pass legislation in the name of “religious liberty” that would allow them to go on the offensive against anyone or any group that does not adhere to their narrow interpretation on sex and sexuality.

    1. Thanks for listening to the podcast. I like your definition, and may quote you in a future podcast. I think “Fundasexual” is a great way to package it. Take a look at my recent talk on the myth of sex addiction. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zzmQsjeqOyk The Fundasexuals are the ones pushing that notion.

  2. So, I’m @ 10 mins in… and have a problem with a base assumption you are kicking things off with regarding all sex. Namely, that it can be objectively considered to be “harmful” to the well-being of another based on x standards or moral code.

    Now, the quotes surrounding harmful are purposeful. You need to delve into the neuro-psychology of it all…

    Perhaps rigorously explore questions like: can that which is fundamentally physically healthy for the brain- as sex is- ever really be harmful for the psyche? or do we all just make assumptions based on cultural indoctrination and our instincts surrounding sexual habit?

    Explore the psychology of disgust/repulsion,-in -out group mentality

    Explore how marriage/sex used to occur between adults and kids…IN the USA.. legally! 12-15yo’s getting married! And still can in PA and HI I think… For shame! where’s the outrage?

    Be more like Howard Stern meets Jesse Bering and I’ll keep listening..

    1. I am not sure what I said in #1 that would indicate a sex negative approach on my part. What you state or argue with seems to be exactly what I wish to accomplish. I do hope you will listen to some of the interviews. You might also find my recent talk on the Myth of Sex Addiction interesting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zzmQsjeqOyk
