With the depth and speed of sexual harassment charges, firings, apologies, denials etc. RMF has been wanting a discussion with other men to talk about our reactions to all of this. Andy’s has continually been; “What the fuck?!”
This week on Real Men Feel, Andy Grant and Appio Hunter are joined by speaker, author and coach, Rev. Jody Bailey, to help men embrace intimacy and tap into their core life force energy for health, wealth and happiness.
We explore what intimacy is. That it is different from sexuality, and all the areas of life intimacy shows up in. Jody shares some of the most common challenges men have to intimacy which include social conditioning and fear. The fear of intimacy is much bigger than the fear of sex.
Authenticity is beautiful. Vulnerability is attractive.
Jody also shares a great exercise to develop more self-love by standing naked in front of a mirror. Appio has done this and talks about his experience.
This week on Real Men Feel, Andy Grant and Appio Hunter are joined once again by International Touring Escort, Kimberlee Cline, to answer a wide range of questions related to her life as a sex worker. Highlights include the most surprising things she’s learned about herself, differences between decriminalization and legalization of prostitution, and we even hear from a client.
Appio even shares something for the first time from his past!
Other questions addressed include: Is there an age escorts have to retire? If you had a daughter would you recommend she become an escort? Do clients ever fall in love with you? Do you ever fall in love with clients? Have you ever been scared? And many, many more. A very interesting and educational episode.

This week on Real Men Feel, Andy Grant and Appio Hunter are joined by International Touring Escort, Kimberlee Cline, to help men understand the etiquette of working with and treating sex workers. Kimberlee also shares her own story about getting into sex work and sex worker advocacy as a founder of Sex Workers Outreach Project. SWOP was created in support of sex workers advocating for sex workers by reducing violence and changing laws.
“Men are seeking sex workers for a lot more than sex.” ~Kimberlee Cline
Kimberlee discusses the three categories that she finds sex work falls into: entertainment, education, healing, and how they are all driven by the seekers.
This week on Real Men Feel, Andy Grant and Appio Hunter discuss the concept and share experiences of internalized homophobia. Thanks to an organic gathering of live listeners the perspectives of straight, gay and bisexual men are expressed.
Key topics include; that the put-down of “gay” has nothing to do with sexuality and is all about making someone feel “less” of a man, the notion of separation along many different attributes, and the fact that we are really of one race, the human race.
We also talk about how easy it is to mock a label or term you don’t understand, and that so many issues of attacking an “other” comes from a lack of self-love.
