Spicy Topic this week!
SEX, Masculinity, Authenticity, Identity, and more! I talk ‘Masc 4 Masc’ with my friend Hod Allen. What does masculinity mean to you? Check it out here!
Hod Allen is a total stud, I can say that because he is a good friend of mine! I interviewed Hod this week because Masculinity is a topic I have questioned for years, and I see Hod as someone extremely masculine. Buff, Bearded and deep voiced, Hod represents masculine to me, but when we dive into the topic, I soon realize that like all men, ESPECIALLY GAY MEN, Hod has struggled with the how masculinity impacts identity and how a need to appear masculine is a common desire among men.
Hod shares his journey from being a minister, coming out in his late twenties, to his current place of self-acceptance and self-love, which is extremely evident in his care and concern for those around him.
Gender Stereotypes & Gender roles in gay relationships come up, leading us to a pretty open chat about SEX & Sexual Position! Hot Stuff! TUNE IN!
