Wess Haubrich’s Call to Join The Nu Romantics

Wess Haubrich is a 31 year old self-trained photographer and visual artist who is no stranger to NOL . Listen to Wess’s first appearance on the show, where he shares how he kicked an addiction to Dilaudid and used art as a catharsis, to treat his depression, anxiety, and chronic migraines.  Listen here.

Wess returns this time to discuss a new project he is a part of: The Nu Romantics, a group of like-minded lovers of art of all kinds, including books (especially erotica), pop art, photography, film, music, humor, poetry, culture and more. Founded by authors Mystk Knight, Ashlee Shades, Tori Jo Dean, and R.B. O’Brien, their goal is to help new, as well as more experienced artists, tap into and focus on their creativity, and especially to develop a more expanded version of the concept of “romantic”.  As a matter of fact, they say they formed the group to revolt against the preconceived notions of romance as a happy ending.  Instead, their group spreads the message that romance can be found in everything, from nature to pain to the erotic…and even death.  The Nu Romantics passionately believe that, like in Wess’s story, art truly does save lives.

The Nu Romantics are an active and growing presence on Facebook and Twitter (join the creative fun using #NuR or #NuRomantics as hash tags), with many writing and art prompts every week, with the explicit goal of getting the public to participate, and a vibrant online publication where Wess is an editor. 

Join in on an enlightening discussion about art through their dynamic weekly schedule at The Nu Romantics Facebook Group.

HG Tudor, Self-Described Narcissistic Psychopath, Shares Powerful Tips On Spotting and Dealing With His Kind

In the past, I’ve covered the topic of narcissism with psychologists or narc survivors, i.e. empaths or victims, however this episode shares extremely powerful information from the perspective of a highly self-aware narcissistic psychopath himself.

His pseudonym is HG Tudor, and he writes extensively about his situation and mindset to enable people to understand how he and his kind think, behave and operate. Through this, he dispels myths about his kind, unlocks many of the secrets, and enables readers or listeners to understand, counter and escape the clutches of their personal narcissists.

He conveys this unique perspective through ‘Knowing the Narcissist’, a blog which has attracted 5.6 million hits in under two years, and through similar platforms, including Facebook and YouTube. HG also has an extensive catalogue of books which address varying aspects of the narcissistic dynamic. HG’s desire is to weaponize empaths on a global scale, and he’s already helped thousands and thousands become empowered with information you can’t get anywhere else.

Please visit his blog at www.narcsite.com, his YouTube channel ‘Knowing the Narcissist’ and his collection of books on Amazon.

We discuss the varying levels of narcissism and the categories, the sources of fuel they seek, the typical pattern of a narcissistic relationship, how narcissists are created, why they target empaths, why empaths continuously get sucked back into a relationship with a narcissist, how narcissism sometimes plays out between siblings, whether or not a narcissist can change, and much, much more.

I encourage you to find a quiet spot to really listen and focus on what HG shares. There is a TON of very useful information that you won’t want to miss. This episode will help you with family, friends, work colleagues and your romantic relationships.  If you need additional assistance, I encourage you to consult with HG.

Enjoy.

Cristina Shy On Genetic Sexual Attraction

Cristina Shy is an activist fighting for the rights of ALL consenting adults to share love, sex, relationship, residence and marriage, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, number of participants and whether or not they are related. Cristina’s activism is focused on Genetic Sexual Attraction and consanguinamory, and she joins NOL to explain why it’s important for people to know that not all incestuous relationships are abusive. In fact, many are completely consensual, loving and intensely special, as a result of what she explains further in the episode as the “double love bond”.

This is the first episode of two personal cases of consensual incest. Both episodes will shine the light on the flip side of Dr. Wish’s discussion, which zeroed in on non-consensual incest, specifically early childhood sexual abuse and the long-term effects of this trauma on adults.

Cristina, whose name and voice has been changed to protect her identity, tells her story of meeting her half-brother for the first time when she was 33, how she discovered GSA and was relieved to find that she was not alone, and why she is now one of the leaders of the movement of consanguinamorous people fighting to change the incest laws and gain the right to be in a relationship, have sex with, live with, and marry a relative. She also dispels the “Mutant Baby Myth”.

While she does not claim to be a professional counselor or lawyer, Cristina offers confidential one-on-one assistance to anyone experiencing GSA or consanguinamory who needs support, particularly when it comes to adoptions and reuniting with biological family members, or the legal issues associated with being consensual adults in an incestuous relationship.

To connect with Cristina and her consang-positive community, go to her website www.lilysgardener.com, visit her blog at cristinashy.tumblr.com or email her at lilysgardener@protonmail.com.  You can also join her Kindred Spirits forum ks2016.forumactif.fr

In the next episode as part of this series, you will hear another leader of the consanguinamorous movement, Jane Doe, as she describes her consensual incestuous relationship with her dad as a result of a lack of the Westermarck effect.  She will discuss incestophobia and their community’s cry for acceptance, how porn is fetishizing her people and why the fetishists are NOT the same as consanguinamorous couples, and much more.
