If you’re not yet familiar with Geoff’s videos, now’s a great time to become acquainted.

I always feel a bit better after listening to Geoff speak on a subject.

“Candid Conversation with Elliott Hulse”

Getting to know Elliott Hulse:

I really appreciate his videos and am a subscriber. His inspiring and intelligent content helps reinvigorate my faith in human potentiality. smile

The parts where he talks about partnerships and later sex are very insightful. On the woman’s role in developing the virtue of saying “no” through building up one’s character to better guard one’s soul — I get it and very much agree. It really isn’t about what clothes we wear or whether we’re chaste; it’s more of an issue of what we allow, what we seek out, being cognizant that we each lose a small piece of ourselves to each person we’re sexually intimate with. Yes, that is so true.
