Howie Gordon, a.k.a. Richard Pacheco, returned for Part 2. He and Dr. Diana discussed more in “HINDSIGHT.” Did his films educate men to please women? What kind of closure did he get as a result of the WORLD PORNOGRAPHY CONFERENCE – where Betty Dodson and Nina Hartley played significant roles?  Here is a part of his talk at this conference: “People were all uptight about sex, but there was no reason to be! We were like noble rogues in some divinely human struggle to make life in a body easier. It was important work! My generation tried to make lust respectable!” We discussed Howie’s life post-porn – including the documentary “After Porn Ends.” Howie and Nina have important messages here. At the end, we discussed a final chapter which looks at his 14-year-old first love, Sally. There was “forty-four years of foreplay.” Of this experience, Howie writes, “Life gave us a pass. We were the fourteen-year-old kids again. Only this time, we were not afraid of sexual pleasure. We had the benefit of knowledge and appreciation. There was no fear and there was no shame. There was consummation. There was completion.”  What a way to end this program!

Bradley Coates, Esq. returned to the program. He is the author of the award-winning 4th Edition of “Divorce with Decency – The Complete How To Handbook and Survivor’s Guide to the Legal, Emotional, Economic, and Social Issues.”  The topic we discussed was the 7 Mega Trends of the New Millennium – which include the women’s movement, cohabitation, the impact of social media and the internet, the proliferation of porn, civil unions, “gray” divorces, and the possible “end of marriage.” Brad is articulate and has a sense of humor…He’ll be back for sure! Meantime, you can get his excellent book through AMAZON.

Marc Gilmartin spoke knowledgably about his specialization: working with adult men with sexual abuse histories, who may be erotically conflicted – often with problematic sexual behaviors. What does “out-of-control” sexual behavior look like? What can compulsive viewing of porn teach a man? How can he integrate this in a sexually healthy way with his partner? In the second half of the program, we discussed the clinical presentations of men versus women with sexual abuse histories. How are the genders typically different? Fortunately, Marc will return for Part 2 on October 15thwww.MarcGilmartin.com for more information.
