SORT BY Relevancy
Speaking the truth to your family.
Telling your family that you were molested as a child is about the hardest part of breaking your silence. Many of us were molested by a family member who is respected and loved by most. You will begin to stack the reasons and excuses as to why you can’t or shouldn’t tell your family in your head and it sounds very reasonable in your head, but you know that it has to be done.
Breaking your silence to someone you trust is just opening the old infected wound and letting the poison out, but as adults we all know that our wound is not going to truly heal if we don’t let the doctor cut it open and clean it out completely. We are adults that were traumatized as children. We know better now. We are not little boys and girls and we have to set the example for others and show ourselves that we deserve being healthy and getting healing. We have to refuse to allow our molesters have power over us another day! You have to stop looking over your shoulder and walking on egg shells. This is what happened and it was not your fault and it is time to experience your life as it should be!
Monday - Release YOUR Pain
Let Go of YOUR Suffering
Break YOUR Silence
Monday’s show is dedicated to survivors who need to take that one step and reveal the truth. Please don’t think of this special step as being exposed to the world and fearing the worst from people if you tell us what happened to you as a child, but instead know that you have been traumatized enough. You never did anything wrong. You deserve and should demand that this load of crap that has been dumped on you be cleaned off of you and out of you!! This trauma is no longer yours!! Take your poisonous secret, put it in a bag and throw it in the trash. It is out, gone and never to return because you can’t be a victim ever again!!! He no longer has that power over you!!
It is very true that the damage that he or she has caused is very real and you probably feel tore up from the floor up, but that is just it! You are now able to heal. You have stopped the damage and the profuse bleeding and the painful recovery begins. The healing path is stretched as far as your eyes can see and in fact, the ending is never seen by our eyes, but the path is a different path. It is a life being surrounded by people who support us and we seek healthy people and make healthier choices.
Welcome! And it all begins with This One Step.

Tonight's special guest is Cheri Roberts from Lincoln City, Oregon. Cheri is a prolific journalist, who suffered many forms of (sexual, emotional and physical) abuse as a child and her series offers voices from other adult survivors supported by leading experts on the topic of pedophilia, incest and molestation. Cheri is a weekly talk-show host and producer for "Challenging the Rhetoric" (#CTR) every Wednesday. She also hosts a special First Thursdays series called, Sickness of Silence (#SOS) addressing childhood sexual abuse. The talk show description explains, "The culture of silence lives on in every generation molding each like the one that came before it. Silence enables abuse, but our words have always held the power to stop it. It is our inability to listen to and share uncomfortable truths that have allowed families to maintain their semblance of normalcy." Cheri suffered abuse as a child, but most notably was sexually abused by several uncle's and a couple of her mother's boyfriends. The sexual abuse began at the age of 3 when Cheri's uncle and aunt became her legal guardians amidst the drug-fueled backdrop of America's sexual revolution. Cheri has spoken openly on the topic of her abuse for decades and feels the shaming of the abuser is also the shaming of the child. As she says, "Shame is what keeps secrets." Outside of her personal life, Cheri is a much endorsed writer, investigative journalist, coach and marketer. As a freelance writer and prominent activist, Cheri lives her life “out-loud” challenging the system with her back turned against the status quo of the failed corporate media.
Men and women alike have endured abuse in their relationships. Tonight we will talk about how to spot an abusive mate and how to get away.

LOVE ... SEX ... TAROT
Find out what 2016 holds for your in Love, Sex, and Romance as Charlie and HiC do their annual dive into these areas.
From serious silliness to silly seriousness, they'll be offering up both insight from the Tarot into Love and Romance for each of the signs in 2016.
In addition to that, HiC and Charlie will see what the seminal classic, The Sexual Key to the Tarot, indicates regarding what hot and bothered sexual odysseys await.
"The SAFE Program also aims to unite Black and poor communities by actively recruiting and hiring a number of our youth to help implement these much-needed services. Both drivers and escorts will be recruited from among the young and unemployed in our community, a strategythat at the same time will cut down the number of youth who would consider snatching a pocket book just to get a little change. In addition, drivers and escorts will be given extensive training in their respective fields, with both groups receiving intensive safety and FIRST-aid instruction.
State, federal, and local funding of the SAFE Program will also mean additional transportation-at least five vans with a seating capacity of twelve per sons each, plus the hiring ofa full-time program director and assistants. All totaled, the proposed annual budget for the SAFE Program comes to slightly less than two hundred thousand dollars ($195,530).
E orts to acquire funds for the SAFE Program have not yet been successful. A formal proposal has been presented before Oakland Model Cities, a federally funded poverty program, but that agency has made no commitment. A portion of Oakland's $4.5 million in revenue-sharing funds has been suggested for the SAFE Program, but the city administrators have been typically mum. Complete and adequate funding for the SAFE Program was, in fact, an integral part ofthe Seale-Brown Fourteen-Point Program to Rebuild Oakland in the 1973 campaign and, far from being abandoned, it will be included in initiatives and referendums.
The SAFE funding proposal, like the program itself, is an argument for our protection instead of our abuse by public service agencies, which theoreti cally function on our behalf. SAFE is a simple but basic program designed to help and secure the lives of a very important yet often forgotten segment of our communities: the older people." HUEY P. NEWTON
You may have seen the statistics. One in five marriages are in the "no sex" category. That means they have sex with each other ten times a year or less. Another 15% are in the "low sex" category, which means they have sex with each other 11 to 25 times per year. That means 35% (or we can just round that to one out of three) married American couples between the ages of 18 and 59 make love to each other twice a month or less, and the majority of those are once a month or less.
Notice that these aren't folks in the nursing home.
Does making love this little have an effect on a marriage? On sexual health? On potential affairs? On use?
Yes to all of the above.
In this program, Joe Beam discusses how sex in a marriage is directly affected by the relationship the couple have. More than that, he discusses how to increase both the frequency of lovemaking and the enjoyment that both husband and wife can gain from it.
For those couples where one spouse wants to do something sexually that the other is resistant to do, he offers practical advice about how to solve that problem to the satisfaction (emotionally and sexually) of both spouses.
He also reveals the secret to changing bad sex (or even good sex) to GREAT sex.
Call in to talk with Joe about specific questions you have about lovemaking, anatomy, or anything you wish to learn. No questions are taboo. (Proper language is required.)
If you wish, feel free to use pseudonym to hide your identity. Use a fake British accent if you want, but be sure that Joe talks about what you wish to know by calling to talk with him during the program at 646-378-0424. The program airs live beginning at 9 p.m. Central on February 9, 2016.
