December 11 • Gather 'Round

Day 520

Hey... Let's get some guys together to talk about how much they try to avoid acting out while thinking about things they've done or want to do, or scenes they've seen in pornography. And let's do it every week, or multiple times a week.

Yeah, that's the ticket!

I can think of very few things that are more anathema to every way of thinking I have ever pursued than getting a bunch of guys to pull down the proverbial pants of their souls and share their embarrassments and shames. Sometimes rising to the level of criminality, these acts and their unwanted repetitions have driven people that many of us know to suicide, substance abuse, and worse. So let's talk it out and make some lists and tell some stories, and we'll all feel better.

I cannot even find words to express how ridiculous that idea is. Welcome to the journey, or at least part of it.

I'm so thankful for the absurdities I do not understand.



That's just my heart talking

It's talking

Sometimes I don't know what to say

Pretend to look the other way

Are you talking, are you talking to me?

–Ron Sexsmith, ”Just My Heart Talkin'"
