#5: Porn, Vasectomies and Sex Magic - with Baba Des Nichols

Season #1

This week's episode is a conversation from inside The Fathers Sons Brothers founder's circle. Baba Dez Nichols has been supporting men (and women) all over the world through his work as Daka and transformational guide. 

We get into a range of topics in addition to the ones in the title including the importance of healthy self-pleasuring practice, the shadows in the brotherhood and how our sexual energy has been used to control us.

It's rich, it gnarly and it's beautiful to be able to talk openly about these subjects. 

Enjoy the conversation!
