Please join fellow freethinkers on Sunday, March 7th for a panel discussion on the subject of where your morals come from. Three panelists with very different spiritual backgrounds (an atheist, a monk, and a witch … and no, this is not the beginning of a joke) will discuss the sources of their own moral sense and how it applies to their daily lives. The whole thing will be on Zoom and YOU are especially invited!
Erotophobia: My Threat of Pleasure
A persistent and annoying social phenomenon of Erotophobia hamstrings many people, denying them light-hearted sexual playfulness as well as bone-deep erotic pleasure. Erotophobia is an irrational fear of various aspects of sex that manifests as discomfort, disgust, or just unsettledness. It impacts society and our quality of life more than we know. Surprisingly, we likely experience erotophobia every single day.
We’ll explore the most common social manifestations of erotophobia, some suggestions of its source and why it persists, and a couple of tips on how we might overcome it and enjoy the sexual facets of our lives more fully.

On Wednesday, January 20th, at 5:30 pm we will gather via Zoom to share a meal and the camaraderie of fellow freethinkers for a couple of hours. Don’t miss it this month!
