I was a guest host for Hotline, Fusion’s live sexual health call-in show hosted by Cleo Stiller. I rarely talk about my personal relationships – even on After Dark, but I thought this was an important topic. We talk about how many aspects of this election or politics, in general, impact our sex lives.
People buy into the idea that love or at least passion will conquer all, but I think it’s unrealistic to expect to keep up a healthy sexual relationship with someone who doesn’t share your core values. Especially when those values include things like equal rights, or not wanting your extrajudicial killing justified by your skin color. There’s nothing wrong with admitting that certain politics dry your walls or itch your balls. I feel sick when I think about getting stroked and providing pleasure to a bigot that thinks basic human rights are up for debate.
Personally, I’d rather go orgasm free than contribute to the ejaculation of a person with a hateful heart.
Have you ever had to dip out on someone because of conflicting political beliefs? Tell me about it in the comments!
