Video of the Godless Perverts Panel Discussion on Atheism & Sex
I had a great time speaking on the Godless Perverts panel with Greta Christina, Maggie Mayhem, and Chris Hall. The questions that surround sex, spirituality, religion, and atheism have been on my mind lately, so it was a real pleasure to get to have a conversation with such amazing people.
Here’s the event description:
What’s it like to be a queer or kinky atheist? Alt-sex communities might favor calling the goddess or tantric rituals instead of a church revival, but the belief that a spiritual life makes you a better person is as common as in Middle America. The reality is that for nonbelievers, dungeons and Pride Parades can be as unwelcoming as the neighborhoods they grew up in.
Whether you’re a believer or a skeptic, come join us at the Center for Sex and Culture on Thursday, April 26 for a dynamic conversation exploring the role of atheists, agnostics, and skeptics in alternative sexuality. The panel features Greta Christina, Charlie Glickman, Chris Hall, and Maggie Mayhem speaking about how to be a good perv without God(dess), community attitudes that privilege religious and spiritual beliefs, how science can be ecstatic, what atheists call out when they come, and much more.
Maggie just uploaded the videos, so even if you couldn’t be there, you can check out what we all had to say. Enjoy!

I loved this panel. Have you written anymore about god/dess imagery as metaphor? This is exactly how I see such rites/meditations and I’d love to read more of your perspective.
Charlie, not Chris. Ugh 😛
