Between Rightwing Rumble buying up Callin & META’s mega-“positive” (but not SEX-positive) Threads tying up Twitter into Musky knots of nastiness, our little Love Train is on its way from the Capitalocene to the Bonobocene. Warning: Explicit Conversations About Politics, Culture, & Sexuality! Highlights include: Hopeful news on the censorship front! An Instagram lawyer has admitted that IG committed a grievous error in disabling my account! Stay tuned to find out if my wrongfully disabled account(s) are restored, or if I get social-media-suckerpunched once again. Chris G. calls in to give a rousing speech to restore my accounts, & remind us that it’s Disability Pride Awareness Month—which we always celebrate but, having had my social media accounts “disabled,” I'm feeling the solidarity even more this year. Chris himself sets an admirable example for other people with autism, & we are so proud of his SUZY Award-winning activism… David, aka “Hybrid Bonobo,” calls in to talk about my amazing 1996 interview with Harvard anthropology Professor Richard Wrangham +other questions about rare hybrid bonobo-chimp offspring & books about now-taboo sexual practices among our prehistoric ancestors for which I suggest Dr. Christopher Ryan’s classic "Sex at Dawn." Brady calls in with questions about chemicals that kills your sex drive… AND it’s my Mom’s birthday during the live 7/8 broadcast, so I give a little tribute to the wonderful artist, teacher & low-key socialist who would have been 104, if she were alive. RIP John Clark, my old friend (who I met through Dr. Toni Grant), KIEV radio show, ex-husband of great actress Lynn Redgrave & Dad to Janelle Hopkins’ son Derek Wilder. What a character John was! +Our Vice TV documentary on Dr. Susan Block’s phone sex therapy, & featuring our Bonoboville Reunion, will premiere August 8! Go Bonobos for the Urban X Awards & vote for me for “Most Popular Sex Educator”: https://urbanxvoting.com/voting/voting-9/ . Meanwhile, Rumble, the new Far Right internet channel named for dirty street fighting, has purchased Callin. What to do? Instead of dwelling on our differences—which are many— we focus on our common interest in Free Speech… And there’s a Rumble in the Social Media Jungle between Elon Musk’s abused adoptee, Twitter, and Marky Z’s Goody-Two-Shoes brainchild, Threads. We all know what a mess Musk made of Twitter—& it’s getting worse, especially if, like us, you don’t buy Elon’s blood-sucking blue tics. But the Bird is the only major social media site that hasn’t banned me—& it’s always been best for Free Speech on sex-positive topics and images—so we’re still there. The new Threads app is more of a mystery, but we’re there now too, albeit slightly bored. Is Threads an empty suit? Apparently, the new platform is a no-fly zone for news-and-politics AND seems cut from the same erotophobic clothe as IG—relentless self-promoting “positivity” without sex-positivity. Are these Threads the Emperor’s New Clothes? Naked or not, have a Bonobo Summer of Love with great beach-reading: The Bonobo Way! Make Kink Not War!
