Purity Culture and Sexual Band-Aids (BDSM, Rape Fantasy, etc)

Purity Culture and Sexual Band-Aids (BDSM, Rape Fantasy, etc)
Purity Culture and Sexual Band-Aids (BDSM, Rape Fantasy, etc)

I talked about this a little in my book which is linked below, but I have observed a significant amount of people impacted by purity culture being drawn towards BDSM, Rape Fantasy, and other things that I would classify as sexual band-aids given the circumstances.

Sometimes They Fly Away

“I just can’t do this anymore, Ed.” She was serious. “It’s just not going to work.”
 
“But Kathleen,” I pleaded, “it’s not my fault!”
 
I knew it was pointless to argue – this wasn’t the first time I’d had a girl break up with me after all. When a woman tells you it’s over, it’s never because they’re looking for stimulating conversation. It’s an expression of power, not an invitation to discussion.
 
“I don’t want to hear it. We’re done, Ed.”
 
There it was, the brick wall statement I couldn’t hope to bust through. I hated to hear it – we were so great together, Kathleen and I. Well, obviously she didn’t think so, but she’s not the first, like I said.
 
My name’s Ed. Ed Thomas. Ed Phono Thomas. ‘Ed’ is actually short for Edison. Yeah, as in Thomas Edison, inventor of the phonograph which, incidentally, should explain my middle name. I know, parents can be cruel.
 
Speaking of cruel, as I stood there watching Kathleen walk away I could only imagine that maybe I’d rather be burned with irons than by females. Not that I’d ascribe the word “cruel” to my new ex, necessarily, but at that moment I couldn’t think of any more appropriate adjectives.
 
Oh well, win-some-lose-some. Trouble is, I can’t seem to get the “win” part right. My record stands at 0-5. And that’s only counting this year since January. And it’s March. Yeah. Maybe I should go after Kathleen and thank her for helping me keep my perfect record. Maybe I should just go home.
 
I went home.

An Atheist and A Christian Coming Together: Episode 1

My friend Raymond and I have started a new podcast. It is also up on iTunes and Stitcher! I got a bit uppity on this one so there is a language warning. Here is the synopsis:

“An Atheist and a Christian come together to discuss social issues in the world. We want to show everyone that a solitary belief does not make a person and that we are more alike than we think. No-holds barred, we talk about EVERYTHING, and we discuss topics from our entirely different backgrounds.”

Here is the episode synopsis:

“Today on our very first episode, Rebecca and I talk about the good that men do, silly things that we see on social media, gun culture and lots more. Come on in and have a listen. Rebecca and I plan to run this every week, airing on a Sunday night. We plan to show others that two people of different walks of life can have more in common than we are different. Tune in, judge for yourself.”

7 Fall Activities for Toddlers

My toddler and I are enjoying the fall weather that has made its way to Oklahoma. We’ve had quite a few rainy days where we’ve had to stay inside, but there have also been a lot of nice days to hang out outdoors.

7 Self-Care Tips For Content Creators

7 Self-Care Tips for Content Creators.png

Content creation is rewarding, but it can be a draining profession to be in. This is especially true if you talk about vulnerable topics like mental health, addiction, abuse, etc. Some people will welcome your content with open arms and thank you for all that you do. Others will do their best to be the nastiest, most vile creation that has ever left a slimy trail all over your comment box.

If you talk about religion or politics on top of the other topics I mentioned, the latter might be what you deal with the most. It can be hard to subject yourself to seeing some of the worst sides of humanity on a regular basis. I find myself envious of my friends who do not have a Twitter or Facebook, let alone a blog! But I know that what I do is important to the people who need it the most. That said, I do have to make sure that I take care of my emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being in the process.

I firmly believe content creators need to practice self-care, and while this may look different for every person, here are some of the things I suggest.
