Warning: Explicit Conversations About Politics, Culture, & Sexuality
Like anyone with a brain, we’re going insane from Putin’s Rape of Ukraine. Of course, our poetic angst is nothing compared to the Ukrainian people being attacked by this power-mad bully. Trumpty Dumpty calling Putin a “genius” is just one bully impressed by a bigger bully. As always, we’re for peace, love and The Bonobo Way, though we admire the Ukrainians’ passionate resistance to tyranny.
Putin claims that Ukraine is run by “drug addicts and Nazis,” but their President is a Jewish Comedian. Putin’s unprovoked attack has turned Volodymyr Zelensky, the “Little Yiddishe Comic Who Could,” into a remarkable real-world leader, and the joke is on Putin. Sort of. Who knows how the whole horrific situation will evolve or (more likely) devolve? By the time you listen to this podcast, all the news could change—hopefully to peace and diplomacy… with good sex for all—especially Putin, who seems to need some nookie… gagged and straitjacketed. Though it could all go the other (nuclear) way…yikes!
To help us make “sense” of the crisis, joining Capt’n Max and me on the “Ukraine Love Train” is multiple SUZY award winner Luzer Twersky, recently in Ukraine making “Dovbush,” a film in which he plays the Baal Shem Tov, founder of the Hasidic movement, giving us a very intense, personal glimpse into what is happening in Ukraine right now, updating us with friends’ messages & Telegram newsflashes.
Sorry this show is more about war than love, though we do talk wartime sex, makeup sex and sex workers in Ukraine - plus NATO’s unsexy “Poking the Bear” provocations. Also, it opens quite lasciviously, with Max spilling his beer in a gush of foam. And our anthem is still: “Make KINK Not War!”
Speaking of which, thank you Xbiz for a nice review of KINK: Another Guide for the Perplexed (with apologies to Maimonides). And don’t miss my State of the Sexual Union address 2022. Of course, that other State of the Union is important, but so is sex, love and the antiwar Bonobo Way of peace through pleasure.
Being antiwar is not an easy position right now, with almost everyone salivating to fight “the Russians.” It was not easy during Vietnam (ask Jane Fonda), nor the first Iraq War, nor right after 9/11, but we were antiwar then and we are antiwar now. We were proven right then, and we are right again: War is NOT the answer.
Maybe kink will save the day. Putin once claimed (absurdly) that there are no gays in Russia, so perhaps the shock of seeing that the Ukranian military is tracking Russian troop movements by monitoring Grindr will awaken this foolish imperialist bully from his toxic war trance.
