Join Us As We Discuss The Unedited Truth About Sex
In a sex-saturated culture where kids are exposed to nearly 14,000 sexual references per year on television, and 70 percent of teenagers have encountered ography on the Internet, parents can't rely on the traditional one-time "sex talk" that their own parents muddled through. Kids need to know that it's natural to be curious about sex and that their parents are the most reliable source of information. Otherwise, their friends and smartphones will be more than willing to give answers that are likely to lead them down the path to sin and heartache.
· Is hooking up really wrong?
· What about living together if you fall in love?
· If the Bible bans sex before marriage . . . is everything else fair game?
· What about same-sex relationships? Since when does God deny any kind of true love?
Great questions . . . but who has the answers?
Our culture creates a lot of confusion about sex. Honestly, sometimes it's difficult to know who's telling the truth. On one hand, when we read our Bibles or go to church, we hear how God's design is to wait for sex and save that kind of intimacy for marriage. But on the other hand, when we go to school, turn on the TV, or listen to many of the songs on our favorite playlists . . . they say quite the opposite. Naturally, this makes many of us wonder. Who's right? Sex seems fun. How can something so natural be off-limits?
In Jonathans new book Sex Matters, Jonathan McKee tackles all of these questions, giving you the frank, unvarnished truth about sex--regardless how awkward or embarrassing.
Vince McKee was on the Sports Beat with Nick Camino & Andre Knott on WTAM 1100 in Cleveland last night to discuss the excerpts on SheridanHoops.com this week from his new book “The Redemption of the King.”
Highlights from the interview include the meaning behind the title, and McKee's original inspiration to write the book.
They also covered the best parts of the book -- but also the most difficult parts of the book to write.
Among topics discussed were LeBron's epic Game 5 of the 2007 NBA Eastern Conference finals, as well as the hard fought series loss to the Orlando Magic in the 2009 Eastern Conference Finals.
It was a fun and informative interview that will keep fans excited about the excerpts on Sheridanhoops, as well as the book in general.
Soft Sexism, Sharp Elbows and How to Play Nice with Others and Not be the Bitch in the Boardroom. Also, let's please stop calling strong assertive women bitches. Sharona and special guest co-host Jessica Luther talk about being a woman these issues, being a woman in the media and much more. Special guest this week is Yahoo's Sports' Eric Edholm.

Wait, Whet? The past few days I've decided to do these Pop Up Envy McKee Shows in a somewhat random fashion. Last night it was at midnight. On Monday, it was like an hour before. Today, I decided, not but an hour after I finished broadcasting my last episode. We'll assume my desire comes from the quality of the content that crosses my FB feed. Congratulations. Somebody whack hit the Pop Up Envy McKee Show jackpot.
So the plan is to break some things down about Voldemorts and their relational reindeer games for once and for good so that it shall foreva eva be broke broke. Articles like the one mentioned in the title, make me tired. For one, it swirls around the mind wave that the only thing people who are in relationships are up to is to be married--which is so dumb it's actually just, so dumb. For B, it suggests that being inauthentic, manipulative and superficial is a promising idea when it comes to forming life partnerships. Like, huh? Why does that even make sense at all? Who writes these things? Where do they even live? 1952? And also, whet?! My brain cells are draining fluid right now because I have half a mind to do another pop up show this second. But I won't. Imma marinate for the evening. But be forewarned, what I have to say, just may change the way you view most things marriage and relationships.
I'll also share another excerpt from David Cameron Gikandi's awesome e-book: A Happy Pocket Full of Money. Cause clearly, lots of folk need wealth consciousness in their lives like pronto. B'cause they broke. Pfff.
Tune in and plan to call in tomorrow, will you? NOON! K?

We started out today's The Envy McKee Show Pop Up Show re-defining the word co-parenting. I got the inspiration not only from yesterday's pop-up show, but also from this article:
It's so worth the read.
Also, I do get sick and tired of being sick and tired of the kinds of things people do for their self-loathing, rather, self-esteem challenges. I don't even think people know how they look when they go against the grain of their natural gorgeousness. All in an effort of finding their pretty. Often times, we discover--as I eventually did--that our pretty is exactly underneath all the bullshat we keep telling ourselves. Turns out 30 minutes was NOT enough time... Welp.

Oh, there was another Envy McKee Show Pop Up Talk Show. Oh,yes. There was. We covered "two" things:
1) Don Lemon. Ugh. The fuckery that happens to be respectability politics.Charles Barkley speaking about how "unintelligence and unintelligent Black people be hating on successful Black people" to a white talk show host. Why a "light-skinned" "light-eyed" Black woman who also happens to be Republican thinks Black people are RACIST against her for her "lightness". No, not Stacy Dash. Oh, and why Van Jones was probably not thee best person to come to the conversation's defense.
2) Then we capped up with wealth consciousness-- If you haven't yet read A Happy Pocket Full of Money by David Cameron Gikandi, you can read it now by going here. For Freeeeeeeeeeee! http://digitalbankroll.com/go/happypocket/ahappypocketfullofmoney.pdf <~~ Spread the word. Blam!
