Since 2016, thousands of people in New York City have attended the touchpoint town hall, an open forum conversation about love and sex. It's real people sharing the things they've experienced in bed and in love amongst a room of a hundred perfect strangers. Everyone can be anonymous and anyone can share. This podcast will feature some of the stories that are shared as well as some narration from touchpoint founder, Jared Matthew Weiss.

At touchpoint, our mission is to cultivate emotional, relational, and sexual intelligence by creating space for people to learn from each other. In addition to our town hall, we are also working on a deck of cards that will make it easy to have a meaningful conversation about love and sex with the ones you choose.

The Most Courageous Love Story Ever Told
On today’s episode of Touchpoint, I sit down with two of the bravest people I’ve ever met. Their life stories both individually and collectively stand as prismatic examples of the messes we create when we do not show up as ourselves and the magic we experience when we do. I first met Nick and Katherine North in Marfa, Texas at a week-long creative conference called Yeah Field Trip.  I was hosting a town hall about love and sex––obviously––and they were sitting right up front.  When I asked people to share what comes up for them when I said the word “sex,” Nick shouted out, “This morning!”  He and Katherine were all cuddled up together. It was very cute. Everyone laughed.  I turned my attention their way.   “How long have you two been together?” I asked. “About five years,” said Katherine. “And how was the sex you were having five years ago different than the sex you had this morning?” They looked at each other lovingly. “Well for one,” said Nick, “I was a woman then.” The room was still. It was a powerful moment.  They proceeded to share a few bits of what I consider to be one of the most courageous love stories I’ve ever heard.  It’s a story of overcoming poverty, shame, gender and sexual oppression, while cultivating friendship, family, intimacy, and above all things, the bravery to be yourself.  I’m grateful that Nick and Katherine agreed to sit with me and share their story.  It has changed my life.  They have touched my heart.  And I’m honored and privileged to bring this story to you.  I hope it gives you more permission to be whoever you are––in bed, in love, and in life. Thanks for listening. Here. We. Go. Love, Jmw.   Insta: @lovetouchpoint Web: lovetouchpoint.com  
Danger, Touch, & Transformation In Bed

What Does It Mean To Be A Man?
Andrew Horn wants men to get more vulnerable.  He’s the founder of a new organization called Junto, a not-so-secret club for men to explore emotional mastery where he curates workshops and weekend retreats for bros to come together, take off their macho masks, and get real about their feelings.   In a #metoo world, this work is very important.  And that’s why I wanted to chat with Andrew about his personal journey.  In this episode, he shares stories of being bullied as a child, how he’s learned to be in partnership with a very powerful woman, some of the books that have guided him on his way, and ultimately, what it’s like to raise a son in the modern world. Andrew is a good friend, so we also share a lot of laughs.  But his humor and charm are well-balanced with his insights, and of course, his vulnerability.   Andrew Horn itsandrewhorn.com @itsandrewhorn   Touchpoint lovetouchpoint.com @lovetouchpoint
