On this episode: Aaron caps that. Nate shops amazon. The guys interview Chris Bruno, counselor and author of Sage: A Man's Guide into His Second Passage and Man Maker Project: Boys are Born. Men are Made. Nate shares his experiences from the Italian Samson retreat.

“The task of the second passage, is to find the boy within the man, and bring him home.”

“When we are hijacked in this phallic state, we are not looking for sex, we are looking for connection.”

“The more we dissociate, the more it’s a flight from the goodness of God.”

"It's not because the sage knows all the answers to all of the things. The sage is not a sage because he has good advice."

"Porn is like the junk food of healthy sex and relationships."

Aaron and Rob interview Ian Henderson, founder of the Naked Truth Project. about how he got involved in this work of opening eyes and freeing lives from the damages of porn. While Naked Truth is based in Manchester, UK, they work with people all over the world.  The "open eyes" aspect focuses on education to combat the normalization of porn by presenting in schools and elsewhere to raise awareness of the dangers of porn.  The "freeing lives" portion focuses on those who have already been trapped in addiction, and also help for their partners.  The work goes well beyond just stopping the behavior, moving individuals to healthy growth and reclaiming what was lost.
