Exploring the wisdom of the brain between your legs.

All roads of a man’s identity—masculinity, sexuality, confidence, intimacy—inevitably trace back to his relationship with his D*.

And yet, few men have more than a surface level understanding of the deeper workings of this surprisingly complex—and wise—organ that dangles between his legs.

While the focus is on men, women are very much welcome and an essential part of the conversation.

The Discerning Dick Presents: John Wineland

For our 10th Discerning Dick… 

Bryan and I have the special privilege of bringing OUR teacher – John Wineland – to our community for a special workshop on intimacy.

John’s 30 year practice in this field includes 10 years of intensive study under the legendary David Deida, author of The Way of The Superior Man (1 of the 5 most influential books of my - Dominick’s - life).  

 Join us if you’ve ever wanted to take your deeper steps into:

The “Why” of The Discerning Dick in 3 minutes

Recorded LIVE at our very first Discerning Dick at The Assemblage NoMad in New York City.

  • Dominick reveals his very first encounter with a Playboy magazine at age 8.

  • How Dominick’s first introduction to (previously foreign) sexual sensations unwittingly shaped the trajectory of his sexual life for the next 3 decades.

  • Confronting the reality that the majority of men never do more than a surface level exploration of the potential weapon of mass destruction that dangles between their legs.

For the women: More than half our audience ends up being women.

Take a listen and see how this discussion may connect with you.

A discerning dick “Greatest hit:" Max Stossel

Max Stossel, award winning spoken word poet, delivers a raw, jarring and brilliantly honest poem on his default sex (and masculinity) education: pornography.

Men: Listen to this for a wakeup call on how porn has unwittingly shaped your beliefs about sex.

Women: Listen to this to understand how your partner’s worldview has been shaped by porn.

Parents: If you are raising young men (or women), you need to know how your children will find porn regardless of how hard you try to snuff it out…and what’s at stake if you don’t handle it differently.

Warning: Not at all safe for work ;-)
