Frank Dunn and Michael Kerosky open May’s edition of Jonathan’s Circle Live with a quesion:  what does “comfort” mean to you?

Most if not all people have an idea of what's comfortable.  And even though a pattern or behavior is not “comfortable” to someone looking on, humans, like any other species, are engaging in behaviors for which there is some kind of payoff, a kind of “comfort” to them, however strange it might seem to an observer.  

In these hard days of quarantine, lockdown, and social distancing, a raft of customary ways of giving and receiving comfort have swiftly and radically changed.  Without touch, what are we to do if touch is our primary way of giving and getting comfort?  What happens when the sunny extravert, used to making eye contact, suddenly hides his expression behind a mask and sees unresponsive, impersonal people surrounding him?  We are social animals, unused to and untrained for living in isolation for long periods.  

Yet, like all living things, we try to survive.  How resilient are we?  How adaptable are our resources for thriving?  Above all, are there ways we can generate comfort for ourselves with some to spare for others who are as hungry for comfort as we?  

• Let’s share our ideas drawn from our erotic and spiritual experiences, needs, and desires and see how we refresh our bodies and spirits

Listen to others whose perspectives may be helpful 

Connect with men like you who need companionship in a hard time.

We hope you’ll join us.
