Today, December 26th, is our last live episode of Sex Out Loud on Voice America (don’t worry – I’m not leaving radio/podcasting forever, just ending an amazing run on the Voice America Variety channel). I’ll be live chatting with a dear friend of mine, Dr. Winston Wilde, sexologist and therapist discuss our experiences with sexual fetishes. We will discuss why they scare people, how to safely act on them, and what place they have in the diverse spectrum of human sexuality. Dr. Wilde will also discuss his work with the Desert Center for Sexuality whose public services promote sexual health and happiness, provide sex education to diverse audiences, create and sustain community, and expand the awareness of sexual culture through art.

As a psychotherapist, he is licensed by the State of California (#MFC39060) at the Board of Behavioral Sciences in Sacramento and is a member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists.

Born in Hollywood, raised in Santa Monica, Wilde has travelled many places in the world, but always come back to Our Village of The Angels. His life has been circuitous, taking him into paths untrodden, into radical sexualities and diverse spiritual practices. Other adventures include sexology conferences in Cuba and India, radical faerie gatherings and Old Guard traditions, trekking the Himalayas, observing days at a time of devotional silence, Buddhist monastery stays, and helping mid-wife people as they die.
