From Islam to Sex Positive Eco-Feminism! Bio of an Ex-Muslim Traveler!
Sapiosexual Activist: One who is turned on by intelligence and works to heal in the areas of human experience where frustrated sexuality leads to societal dysfunction.
Many people want to make a difference in the world but also want to have fun! What could be more meaningful and enjoyable than by working in the field of sex to help others?
With a background in Sociology and Women's Studies and in his travels to 36 countries, Mojo has seen firsthand, the many areas of sexual dysfunction in the world.
However, Mojo's travels and education gave him inspiration, ideals and insight to broaden Hedonisia’s goals.
Though he was born a Muslim, he became disenchanted with the religion and the way it treats and punishes women who dare to be different from what their religion expects of them. This is especially true when it comes to sexuality where Islam harshly sanctions a woman for exploring sexuality outside of marriage compared to men who have much more freedom.
Sexuality is one of the few remaining areas where it is possible to apply ethical social entrepreneur principles to sexual products or services in ways that are beneficial to the planet and to society. However, there was no code, philosophy or set of principles on how to be an ethical erotic entrepreneur. This website is Mojo's attempt to write about how to be an 'ethical eropreneur', working with sex in ways that are healing and beneficial to society.
Mojo in his own words!
Since my travels around the world in the nineties, I've been looking for a place where I truly feel at home with people who are a bit kooky, idealistic and quirky like me. Portland turned out to be that place. It's like Amsterdam was from the 80's to the 90's.
Portlandia is a show that affectionately pokes fun into the reasons this city is so different from the rest of the world. It will give you an idea why I love it so much! Statistically, Portland is one of the most ethically sex positive and feminist cities in the world.
Currently, I'm a blogger and volunteer at Sex Positive Portland, one of the most ethical sex positive communities in the world. Slowly building bridges between this city and our eco-feminist community in Hawaii.
I am a man who does not practice the 'double standard'. I understands that strong, equal women are some of the most amazing lovers for the simple fact that whatever they do in bed is something they WANT to do. This is different from so many women in patriarchal cultures who have sex because it is their DUTY.
I'm really having fun working towards all the causes I am passionate about with people I really like.
I became a feminist because I like women; both as friends and as lovers. I have female friends with varying levels of intimacy. So I'm pretty happy! I'm always amazed why more men are not feminist. If you are a man and you like women, you should be a feminist. it's that simple!
