Description

Who is this for?

This workshop is for men and for those assigned male at birth.

Description

Many, if not most guys look at some version of porn on a regular basis, whether viewing XTube sites, pic-swapping on hookup apps, or scrolling through Twitter/Tumblr/Reddit feeds. But we hardly ever talk about it or compare notes with others.

What would it be like to take a break to evaluate and refine your porn practice?

“The 30-Day Porn Cleanse” is an opportunity to consider the Marie Kondo principles: how does porn bring me joy, and how does it not? How does it expand my erotic imagination, and how does it constrict it?

Facilitated by Don Shewey, author of The Paradox Of Porn: Notes on Gay Male Sexual Culture and Craig Cullinane, Creative Director and faculty member of the Body Electric School, this online workshop will invite you to examine your relationship with pornography in a non-judgmental and supportive environment.

This is not about “treating porn addiction” – this course views erotic imagery as a portal to pleasure and self-discovery and offers “the pause that refreshes,” so you can return with mindfulness and choice to the porn-watching practice that serves you best.

In this 30-Day experience, you will:

  • Have the opportunity to create space from your interaction with porn in ways that are potentially useful and refreshing;
  • Engage with resources, activities, and rituals that will help you to meaningfully “fill the space” of the void that the porn habit fills;
  • Attend weekly online gatherings to connect with others to examine and learn about your relationship with porn.


Required: Purchase the book The Paradox Of Porn: Notes on Gay Male Sexual Culture by Don Shewey.
