La mente erótica de Jack Morin: Resumen y revisión

Joseph Kramer Ph.D.


Introducción:

La primera vez que escuché algo sobre el psicólogo de San Francisco Jack Morin fue en la novela de 1978 de Andrew Holleran “Dancer from the dance”, donde se hace una breve mención a un grupo de hombres que hacían terapia anal juntos. Ese era Jack. Seguramente él más que nadie me aconsejó y guió a superar todos  los escollos hasta conseguir mi doctorado en Sexualidad humana.

Whitman's Child: Joseph Kramer - From The Red Thread of Passion

David Guy

The Red Thread of PassionJoseph Kramer is warm, friendly, affectionate, expansive, and just slightly – shall we say – hyper. He had recently turned fifty when I visited him at his home in Oakland, but there is something boyish about him, like a boy genius who can’t keep the words from flowing. He kept reaching out to grab me as we walked along the sidewalk to lunch, as if to make sure we were still in touch; he constantly - as a practitioner of rebirthing – took in large gusts of air and let them out with an audible sigh; he frequently burst into shouts of barrel-chested laughter; and as we sat together at a sushi bar he let out audible murmurs of pleasure at tastes. He took delight in everything, even – it seemed – our footsteps as we strolled along the sidewalk.

Pointers for Sexual-Spiritual Practice - From The Way of the BodyPrayerPath

Barnaby Barratt Ph.D.

The Way of the Body/Prayer/Path
Although no teaching about this path can substitute for our immediate experience in its practice, there is a role for tantric facilitators, who are neither priests nor professors, but individuals who can share some “pointers” derived from the practices of their own enlightening. Drawing upon the wisdom of many tantric facilitators, here are thirteen interrelated pointers. They are all different ways of expressing the same three principles of method. May they be helpful for our mindfulness as we dance into our spiritual practice.

Isa Magdalena - From Reclaiming Eros

Margaret Wade and Suzanne Blackburn

Reclaiming ErosIt’s been an amazing journey, really. The erotic exploration I started doing first came from my body, but I would also say that there were strands in the cosmic field that were helping me. When I think back, my mind immediately starts to see how those strands converged, leading me to integrate sex and spirit. I seem to have this particular path of stumbling along, picking pieces from here and pieces from there – pieces from various traditions. But ultimately, the way I work is not traditional. Perhaps not having a teacher or a guru gives my discoveries a fresh innocence.

A Social History of the First Ten Years of the Taoist Erotic Massage

Joseph Kramer Ph.D.

Joseph KramerIn my twenty years of teaching, my most profound experiences have involved a form of erotic bodywork called Taoist Erotic Massage. This massage often takes men and women into erotic trance states. The rhythmic breathing and genital stimulation of a Taoist Erotic Massage activate a prolonged, orgasmic glide. I have witnessed thousands of men and women access this astonishing state. This expanded full-body orgasm is the cutting edge of sex education today!

Joseph Kramer - From Reclaiming Eros

Margaret Wade and Suzanne Blackburn

Reclaiming ErosI grew up in a Catholic family that was very service oriented, very “other” conscious. My father was a lawyer who gave half of his time providing free service for the unprivileged and folks in trouble, so early on, I got this idea of service and connectedness to others. I was a very religious, I would say ecstatic, boy. Something my father and my grandmother instilled in me was a sense of awe and a love of nature. Even in my suburban neighborhood, I tried to get away and spend time in some little field or wooded area. As I got older, I channeled that sense of awe and wonder into mystical Christianity.

Taoist Erotic Massage - Ben Haggard

Ben Haggard

Ben Haggard

Ever since I learned Taoist Erotic Massage (TEM) sixteen years ago, I've been a man with a mission. Prior to that I was trained as a massage therapist, and I learned not only the strengths of massage therapy but also some of its prejudices and weaknesses. I have come to believe that one of the most profound weaknesses in the way massage is conventionally taught is the taboo against including erotic touch in the massage. This taboo is so widespread and so strong that it is hardly questioned within conventional massage modalities. However, I believe this taboo is actually harmful and runs counter to the deepest and most central principles of massage therapy.

Sexual Behavior in the Human Male by Alfred Kinsey: A Review

Joseph Kramer Ph.D.

Sexual Behavior in the Human MaleSexual Behavior in the Human Male: A Review
By Joseph Kramer, Ph.D.

The budding eleven-year-old sexologist in me found Alfred Kinsey’s 804 page book at the main branch of the St. Louis public library in 1958.   Over a three-year period, I made over a dozen trips from my suburban home to the heart of St. Louis to study what Kinsey discovered about male sexual behavior. I was especially interested in his sections on early sexual growth and activity, masturbation, homosexuality, and how religious background influenced sexual outlet.  I remember being surprised that an eleven-year-old could read and make sense of this adult, scientific text.  I also remember after each pilgrimage, sighing in relief at the diversity of human sexual behavior.  Thanks to Alfred Kinsey, I was able to let go of some of my early sexual shame.

The Erotic Mind by Jack Morin: A Summary and Review

Joseph Kramer Ph.D.

The Erotic Mind

I first heard of San Francisco psychologist Jack Morin in Andrew Holleran's 1978 novel, Dancer from the Dance where there is a short mention of a group of men in San Francisco doing anal therapy together. That was Jack. Probably more than any single person, Jack counseled and coached me through the pitfalls of graduate school to my exalted status as a Ph.D. in human sexuality.
