Monika, Brandon, Paul, Francesca + Janet  Janet W. Hardy, author of the Ethical Slut and Radical Ecstasy; S/M Journeys to Transcendence, joins Sacred Courtesan & Tantric BDSM Priestess Francesca Gentille with sex educator Monika and Comedian Paul Brumbaugh for further exploration of funlightenment, meditating on the sensations of erotic exchange. How do you make hooking up at a kinky play party safe & healing? Even if that does not sound like your scene, how would knowing how to make edge play safe improve your sex life?

Francesca & Janet take us on a deep dive into the mind states that can be achieved through conscious BDSM play. We discuss how the work of Dr. Joe Dispenza (quantum field healing), and Dr. Peter Levine (trauma & somatic experiences). In retrospect, this mind state beyond time/space and a sense of self reminds Monika of a TED Talk about neurologist Dr Jill Bolte Taylor who had a stroke and as parts of her brain shut down, she describes an experience of a right-brain *only* mind state beyond time/space and "self" or ego. 

This Sexploration with Monika episode is warming us up for "Confession: A 5-Course Sensual Feast - Beauty, Bondage & Transcendence" in a gorgeous stone cathedral in SF's North Beach November 23rd. Let's Make sex sacred again, because sex is proof that God loves us and wants us to have fun!

Inches for Charity a cockumentary, and Erotic Breath Play w/ Dr. Kemi

Inches for Charity, a "cockumentary" about penis size, intends to raise money for an orphanage in South Africa for children with AIDS. We spoke with director Nicholas Sher about "the penis rack" - the only proven method for permanent penis enlargement, and Dr. Kemi Ando just happens to be in the studio to tell us if in fact stretching your penis is really safe. Token Straight Guy Jim Stone gets double-bonus points for trying on the penis rack. (makers of holy objects for your pleasure parts) has donated the craziest and most beautiful silicone wang I have ever seen, and yes it is holy. Meanwhile, Dr. Kemi Ando, who did her dissertation on erotic breath play, is chock-full of helpful information, as then she tells us some harm-reduction tips on how (if you are going to play with breath control or choke your partner) not end up brain-damaged. We also have a very interesting conversation about breath play and sitting-on-your-face and nitrous oxide, aka whippits or "hippy crack." Jim gets even more gold stars when he surprises us about what he did while wearing the extender. What a guy!!! Dr. Kemi and I are impressed and giggling at the same time. Somehow we manage to get back on track with Dr. Kemi's events like "Cum for a Cause" and the Society of Janus "Munch."

Kinky Salon: of boobies and cupcakes (part 2)

Kinky Salon is San Francisco's most colorful sex-party. Are boobies and mini-cupcakes a recipe for fun or is that just the sugar talking? Sexploration with Monika host Monika Thomas continues her journey into Kinky Salon, a sex party in San Francisco--and there's lots of frosting. Monika infiltrates the secret backroom bedroom of Kinky Salon founders Professor Violet and Polly Glamourous, where people - get this - people are ACTUALLY sleeping. It is shocking. We discuss how playing Dungeons & Dragons leads to throwing sex parties for a living, boobies (again), and "the Beauty Engine" a pet social engineering project. Polly and I talk about the importance of creating an environment where people feel safe to experiment. Professor Violet even channels "Monsieur LeFrite," a deranged French Fry who defenestrates swingers who linger too long in "the pink room" (yes, it *is* decorated to be reminiscent of the interior of a vagina), but that's not until well, well after midnight.
