Celestial Body 2: Entering the secret rooms: BDSM, Underground Sexuality . . . and God

November 18, 2015 @ 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM



Moderated by Perry Brass (The Manly Pursuit of Desire and Love, Belhue Press), Celestial Body 2 is part two of a three-part series of discussions, readings, and even demonstrations on this intriguing, often controversial topic. Feel free to attend one, two, or all three Celestial Body meetings.

Joining the conversation at Celestial Body 2: the Rev. Steve Parelli (Other Sheep) on submission to God; Craig Cullinane, honoring the Sacred Intimate (“Cosmic Orgasm”); Christopher Trevor on Deep Fetishes; and Gymnos Alitheia on ecstatic nakedness.

Let’s separate spirituality from religion and discuss the question: IS GOD STILL A LOT KINKIER THAN YOU THINK, OR WHAT ARE THE SECRET ROOMS IN YOUR HOUSE?

The third and final session will take place on Wednesday, December 16, 7 to 9:30 PM.

Perry Brass has published 19 books, including poetry, novels, short fiction, science fiction, plays, and bestselling advice books (How to Survive Your Own Gay Life, The Manly Art of Seduction, The Manly Pursuit of Desire and Love). Active in the movement toward lgbt rights (gay equality) since 1969, Brass’s work continuously deals with issues of sexual freedom, personal authenticity, and personal politics coming out of his involvement with the movement for gay liberation. He is especially interested in that connection between sexuality and spirituality; with the world of the body, the mind, and a deeper “soul” consciousness connecting the two. Aside from his books, poetry, plays, and essays, he also regularly blogs for the Huffington Post. For more information:
