24:05 Kerwin Kay, editor of "Male Lust: Pleasure, Power & Transformation", is a writer and antiracist, anti-imperialist, and feminist activist, active in the men's movement, as well as bisexual and queer politics. He is working on a master's degree in anthropology with a focus on male prostitution. We talked about "Male Lust" and his essay in it, "Infernal Dreams". Kerwin talks about his purpose in this anthology, to break the silence surrounding male sexuality and challenge dominant images of men as unemotional sexual predators. He also talks about his own struggles with pornography, and his feminist and queer politics.

47:47 Boston area (and some national) announcements
51:26 Steven Hill is an author and activist speaking from a heterosexual perspective. His essay is titled "G.I. Joe and Barbie K-i-s-s-i-n-g: Competitive Economics, Competitive Sex", and Steven tells the story of how (at 9 years old) his GI Joe beat up Ken and ran off with Barbie as the prize. He uses this as a metaphor for how men and women are conditioned to relate to each other. He talks with keen insight about the central role our highly comptetive and indivualistic economic system plays in the development of our sexuality, and how buying into women's beauty images and men's success images serves to separate us from ourselves and each other.
67:32 Special Message
68:43 Eliyahou Farajajé is a professor of cultural studies, who is of African/First Nations and Ibero-Celtic ancestory. A widely respected and popular public speaker, he has created rituals for queer people of color towards linking the erotic and the sacred, transcending the Euro-puritan racist world view. His essay in the book is titled, "Holy Fuck". We talked with Eliyahou about sex and spirituality and how to connect the two, and he read for us a powerful poem about decolonizing our bodies.
