The sexual dynamics between the sexes aren’t something we address as often as we should. It’s something that impacts men and women on a daily basis, but we’re simply expected to know how to speak to the opposite sex in terms of sexual attraction and intimacy. This often leads to frustration in the bedroom and beyond.

My guest today is Jackson Hightower, and he is a sexual mastery expert who works closely with men in building intimacy and sexual connection between man and woman. Today, we talk about what women find sexual attractive and irresistible, why men struggle to communicate their sexual wants, needs, and desires, what is causing an increase in erectile dysfunction and lowering testosterone rates, how a man can improve his performance under the sheets, and learning to satisfy both your woman and have your own needs met.

If you’re paying attention even in the slightest, you know there is a clear and deliberate agenda to undermine and de-value men and the role they play in society.

My guest today, Mark Driscoll, has been doing this for decades specifically through his ministry of Christ. We talk about whether or not men are the problem in society, the balance between fearless courage and loving kindness, why submitting to proper authority does not make us weaker men, the key archetypes of masculinity, Christian weakness, and why curiosity will you put you on a path to becoming a better man.

Hunting has become such an integral part of my life and I can’t help but want to talk about all the stories and memories I’ve made and what hunting has done in my own life with other people.

Today, I share our conversation from the porch in Hawaii about his first archery experience. We talk about looking for and creating opportunities, the power of curiosity and inquisitiveness, how to get into hunting for the first time, being coachable and teachable and what that will do for your life, some of the lessons he’s learned, and whether or not he was able to get his first kill.
