The Paradox of Porn (pt 2) w/ Don Shewey

Don Shewey

Don Shewey’s latest book, THE PARADOX OF PORN: Notes on Gay Male Sexual Culture, takes an insightful look at how porn has played a role in our identity and sexual development as gay men.

It looks at the benefits of porn as well as the destructive tendencies it can have on our lives and relationships.

If you haven’t listened to part 1, go back and listen as we discuss the basics of this paradox while part 2 goes into some of the questions of how we can navigate our lives with porn.

Don’s contributions into how we understand gay-male identity cannot be overstated, and this book does not disappoint. I highly recommend it for anyone who has ever looked at porn.
