Gay Men & The Shirtless Selfie
Social media let's us pick and choose what we present about ourselves, but how can we tell when it becomes more indulgent and less authentic? In my latest video, I speak with my friend Raymond Braun who previously worked at YouTube and knows a little something about social media trends particularly within the gay male community. We talk about the need to get likes, how a lot of gay men get them, and some of the issues from it all.
Gay Men & Bottom Shaming
In this video, I break down the psychological nuts and bolts of how and why we tend to label ourselves and other gay men. I go on to describe how this common practice can be really limiting individually and collectively as well as begins to describe how we can challenge bottom shaming so we can grow and heal (and have better sex)!
