Becoming Cock Conscious through Male Sexuality

Posted · 7 Comments

Male Sexuality

I had an amazing weekend on Male Sexuality,  I grew a cock, well not literally but virtually and empathetically.  I was at the Men’s Weekend Somatica training which is a somatic based approach to male sexuality led by the amazing team of Celeste and Danielle.  The weekend started with a powerful somatic visualization of what it would feel like to have male body parts. I was humbled by how vulnerable I felt walking around with my sex on the outside of my body, of how I was unable to hide my desire and physically felt my body change, of how easy it was to become aroused and how frequent my desire was.

In some of my Tantra work, I have experienced having an energetic cock and the feeling of penetrating a man.  In fact I frequently take people through this type of exercise so they can experience the difference between male and female energy.  But this was a new level of sensation and consciousness for me.  And that was just the beginning…

For the rest of the weekend I played the role of a man and experienced all the pressures and inconsistencies that are foisted upon men in intimate and sexual relationships.  The socialization from birth that boys are not supposed to cry or have emotions and that they are touched differently than girls are.  Male to male touching, if it occurs at all, might be a pat on the back, but it is rarely tender.  Sex becomes the only place that men can go to experience intimacy and access their emotions. That is why so much of work that I do with men is about healing the heart and helping them access and embody their emotions.

And the pressure that men have to perform, to take charge of the sexual encounter from beginning to end, even to ask a woman out on a date.  I understand better what it feels like when your cock isn’t in sync with your desire and how frustrating and disempowering that is for a man especially in the early dating stages.  Even the process of moving a women’s body around during lovemaking, which is something I completely took for granted, was really challenging for me and yet we expect men to be able to do this effortlessly.

Constantly having to navigate women’s shifting boundaries creates tremendous confusion for men.  Fearful that they will cross a boundary, men hold back their desire wanting to be the good, respectful guy, when in fact most women crave to be taken by a man. If you don’t believe me about this, ask some women that question or better yet throw your partner up against the wall and see what kind of reaction you get.  Teaching men how to be passionate, romantic, and powerful with women was a huge part of the weekend.

So what was my take away from this weekend?  I will continue to give men permission to have their desires, to help them practice self acceptance and self love and learn how to survive rejection.  I will teach them how to be passionate and provide them with the skills necessary to be in an intimate relationship.  I will help them heal the wounds that women and society have inflicted on them.  I will give them love, nurturing, and empathy.  I will help women understand better how to communicate with men, how to help men experience their emotions, how to be mindful of the mixed messages we send and clarify our own needs, and most importantly, how to love men fully and unconditionally.

  1. “Sex becomes the only place that men can go to experience intimacy and access their emotions.” Yeah, we’re kind of broken that way.

    “I understand better what it feels like when your cock isn’t in sync with your desire…” Well, when it happens there’s usually a reason, and I ignore it at my own peril.

    “Even the process of moving a women’s body around during lovemaking, which is something I completely took for granted” Wait, what? Really? 🙂

    “I will help them heal the wounds that women and society have inflicted on them.” Women? That feels a bit out of place.

    Anyway, thanks for this. It’s interesting seeing oneself from the outside like that. 🙂

      Nicola, I am using “women” in the archetypal term of grandmother, mother, daughter, sister, etc. There isn’t a man alive who hasn’t suffered some sort of wounding (abandonment, disrespect, heart break) etc by some woman in his life and those are wounds that men carry in their heart until they can be accessed and healed. These are usually the wounds that prevent men from experiencing true intimacy. Society has done a number on men as well but that’s for another blog post.

    I’m really glad you took the time to look at this side of the fence. I rarely put myself out there in this arena because I rarely feel that I’ll be taken seriously. Having struggled with everything you hit on in your post it’s good to see there is progress in the area of male sexuality.

    Just to have a woman say “I will help them heal the wounds that women and society have inflicted on them.” Is very important to me from a personal stand point.

    “Constantly having to navigate women’s shifting boundaries creates tremendous confusion for men” Is the most stressful part of dating next to asking someone out.

    Everything you mention in this article is spot on.

    Thank you

      Thanks Micheal: There is a lot of male bashing out there which I don’t understand. Very hard to be a man these days and few women are willing to stick their necks out and admit that that we have done a terrible disservice to society by disempowering men.

    It’s immeasurably encouraging to see at least one woman who’s aware of these issues. I was over fifty before I realized my issues with male sexuality were common, and that the disconnect between popular perceptions of it and my own experience could be addressed. Thank you.

      Thanks Don. This is something that I have always felt strongly about, perhaps b/c I have raised 2 sons. I am happy to be able to give it a voice and be the advocate for men!

    Spot on. Thanks for standing up for men. It has almost never happened in my life. I think lot if us are good men out there and we try our best. It is sometimes good to be appreciated.
