Rhythm of Closeness—Part III

If he had loved her he wouldn’t have minded the distance.”

—Confucius

Wendell has been in recovery for quite some time now, but his mother and father haven’t. Even though Wendell is forty-six years old, his mother’s influence sticks to him like a spider’s web. He realizes that his mother has been guilt-tripping him into doing her bidding for years, manipulating him to stay in contact with her. Some of her favorite sticky phrases: “Your father misses you. You should see him more often. He won’t always be around, you know.” “I haven’t been feeling well lately. I always feel better when you come for a visit.” Continue Reading

As alluded to in Salt-n-Pepa’s hit song from the early 90s, there is probably nothing that runs through a young adult’s mind more than sex. Yet it’s a topic that is rarely discussed outside the locker room and with credible sources.

Let’s face it, most guys learned about sex through online porn – and we all know how “real” that is.

Sperm + (Heart)x2 = Father

“Doc, should I bank my sperm to protect my heirs from going mad?” Wow, now that’s a question. He was wondering how he should handle the now credible link between older dads and their kids having higher rates of autism, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Although small, the increase in these conditions in offspring of older dads is significant, and guys without rug rats are now, officially, worried about them.

Take musician and writer Dan Crane, for example: “I never thought I’d write publicly about masturbating into a cup — particularly in The New York Times — but never say never, I guess.” In his “Diary of a Sperm Banker,” he laid out the whole issue, bare bones and all, for public consumption.
