Everything You Never Learned About Sex Episode 223, January 26, 2021
Author, mentor, and speaker, Michael McPherson is on a mission to powerfully upgrade men and women’s relationship to sex, especially millennials. We explore topics of sex energy, sexual desire, masculine power, and sacred sexual union.
“Sex energy is something we are born with. It is primordial energy. It is an energy we are gifted to by our Creator. Sex is something different. Sex is as simple as all the right things going into all the right places.” ~ Michael McPherson
Michael shares his views on the difference between sex energy and sex. Sex energy is our creative life force. Anytime a man is creating or building something, he’s using his sex energy. You don’t have to be having sex to experience your sexual power.
This episode includes a frank discussion of first experiences with masturbation, sex education (or lack thereof), and turning to pornography. Michael is part of the first generation to have unlimited access to porn thanks to the internet, while Andy had to resort to finding porn in the woods.
In addition to masturbation, Michael and Andy discuss their experiences with ayahuasca. Listen in to explore how to enjoy sex as the spiritual and energetic experience it is. Michael stresses the importance of setting an intention before sex and even for masturbation. He also is remarkably open about sexual shame.
