A podcast diving deep into the realms of INTIMACY, Romantic Relationships, SEXUALITY, and the plethora of issues, aha’s, TABOOS, Fantasies, and psychological impacts and many layers of these topics including: redefining our relationship to Intimacy; JEALOUSY; Infidelity; the secret sauce to Long-Term Fulfilling Relationships; OPEN  Relationships; Polyamory; Physical, Psychic, & Spiritual Attachments; MONOGAMY; Self-Pleasuring; the Freedom that comes with Transparency; Honesty vs. Dishonesty; the long term impact of KEEPING SECRETS; Communication; DESIRE; Chasing vs. Attracting - and more!

We will be featuring special guests, experts, and everyday people who’ve got stories to tell and opinions to share about LoveRomanceIntimacy, and Sexuality. The point is to get this conversation out there in a much bigger way. This is not a typical ‘interview’ style program - it’s an ongoing conversation. My guests and I will go back and forth and roll with the energy and topics as they present themselves.


Ready to turn on the conversation?!!

Did you know that worldwide, pornography rakes in anywhere from $57 Billion to $100 Billon annually?! In the United States it generates more revenue than ABC, CBS and NBC combined and more than all professional football, baseball and basketball franchises combined annually!* Wow! This is a LOT of porn being consumed!!

When I sat on the couch of some of my favorite people in the world recently, with the intention of recording this conversation, we wondered, 'hmmm... which topic shall we record our conversation on?! There are just sooo many things we could dive into!!'

And then I asked the question... 'Is porn bad?!' And there you have it... we got the mic, and with their 10 month son running around in the background (you'll hear his laughter and voice in the background of this recording) we dove deep into this topic. 

This is a powerful topic and a powerful conversation that you definitely want to tune into! We explore porn from a man's and a woman's perspective, discuss the impact easily accessible porn via the internet is having on the youth and our intimate connections in adult relationships and oh so much more!!

Now more on my guests....  

 

Hailing originally from Jamaica and Guyana, founding artistic producers/choreographers husband-and-wife team N’Jelle Gage and Guy Thorne are the creators of FuturPointe Dance, a genre bending Rochester, New York based dance theater company, created in 2009 by this dynamic duo. They are also some of the most evolutionary, mind/heart/soul expanding and amazing human beings I know!

Their company FuturPointe's work is called Reggae-Ballet© characterized by a sensory, multi-genre repertoire born of a sophisticated fusion of traditional and modern Caribbean dance forms, ballet, and Latin vocabulary. The company's repertoire incorporates elements of multi-media, fashion, and provocative performance art to produce an unusual and emotionally transporting dance experience.

 

Guy Thorne emigrated from Jamaica as a young man, beginning his career in the US as a scholarship student at the Dance Theater of Harlem & later joining Garth Fagan Dance ( 2002-2009). 

FuturPointe Dance co-founder, president and Artistic Director N’Jelle Gage-Thorne is an international dancer and educator that has worked extensively throughout the United States, Africa, Central America and the Caribbean. 

N’Jelle Gage-Thorne also teaches master classes in Caribbean contemporary dance techniques (Tecnica Cubana, L’Antech ™, Reggae ballet, Jamaican urban jazz) at college residencies, festivals, the Draper Center for Dance Education in New York State, and studios across the country.
