"I'm gonna have to cut it open. Cut it open because I had trouble opening my bag. I was not able to open my bag until I was 25. And only under the circumstances of a young woman targeting me and staying in my home until the wee hours of the morning multiple days in a row before I finally was good for with her and okay, I've made it through the bag. Okay, I've never heard of this book. It's called every man's battle, winning the war on sexual temptation. One victory at a time. One victory at a time. And there is a workbook included. Anna with a workbook. More than 4 million sold, this is the 20th anniversary edition. That's right. Kind of, you know, the cover is beautiful. Tasteful. Did you read this book in high school? I read this book in high school. And it had a different, let me see the cover real quick. If you could show that up to my screen here, it had a different cover. It had the cover was more of a white was the dominant color with some bluish dreamy, bluish writing on the front. But I got a copy of every man's battle from a friend of mine and he was much more of like a devout kind of syn conqueror than I was when we were young Christians. And he, I think, felt very guilty about his sexual desires. I of course felt guilty constantly about having developing sexuality. And so we read this book at the same time. And I don't know if we discussed it. But there are loads at all. That would have been too hot, I think, if he and I got together to discuss these things in Google. I think it would have been too hot. So but I remember reading it and there are things that I read in this book that for some reason, even after I've deprogrammed from sort of the hardcore Christianity, I used to be such an eager participant that I still these thoughts still come up and these things that I learned in those books still sort of like one of the things in the book is and by the way, it's a completely hetero, normative heterosexual book. It is written for Ben to avoid looking at women. And there's a giant loophole. I know. And the author also, you can't help, but when you read this kind of stuff, the guy always ends up tipping his hand at what he finds sexual deals. And so this guy talks a lot about runners in the morning. So I think one of the things that he talks about is bouncing your eyes. Learning to learning to is the minute that you're your eyes are about to land on a juicy ass or a great set of hands that you bounce your eyes away real quick. I remember I remember practicing this. I remember trying to learn how to be so respectful of the women around me. Do not do not stare. And then I grew up and I was like, oh, to everything there is a season. Now you've developed a lifelong tick. I've developed the steak, and it's like, this may be not the worst thing in the world, not just sexualize every single one of the crosses your path. But the assumption is that that's what you were doing. The assumption is that just layering perfect. Yeah, you're in this lobotomized sort of walking boner. And so these Christian books about sexuality always have this really weird like, have you ever had sex before? They have these really weird perspective on all this stuff. And I find it fascinating. I thought you might find it fascinating. Oh, my God. I love the idea of me getting this book in high school and just being like, gotcha. Gotcha. I'm on top of all of this. Avoiding way ahead of your hair, avoiding women in every possible way. This is fascinating. So you read this book with your friend. Did you do the workbook? What does that even involve? I didn't know it came with a workbook. That's part of the anniversary. Okay. Is it a separate book? It looks like I'm seeing victory with your eyes. There are discussion questions in case you have a group that you meet with. I had heard about these groups when I was maybe 13 or 14. These are like these are like porn and masturbation accountability groups that some young men thought that they needed to be a part of. I remember hearing about these, I was never a part of when I even at my most fervently Christian despised Bible studies and I went to church because in my family, we were part of the political structure of the church of the nazarene. Which is this denomination of the church, similar to methodist, but more strict and more weird. And so we were an important family in that church. I'm like the grandson of two important nazarene figures. And so we went to church twice on Sunday once on Wednesday and then three more times various times for various reasons. And then my whole family life revolved around a nazarene college. And so we were always on the campus of the college and so the thought of going to a fucking Panera with 8 hopes who are all talking about, I saw a boob and I and I shit my pants. Is the last thing on this goddamned earth that I would ever have wanted to do. Even at the height of my Jesus, I was like, that sounds so fucking awful. I don't want to do that. And also, I will say this. I did pretty good on my own. I did not masturbate, bridger until I had completed a year of college. I never. Wow. So the book worked. You've come on here to kind of sell books. He asked the book work. If what you want to work is to never experience pleasure and to associate sexual pleasure with fear and tension. Which I'm still like, I'm still working through that that I. Of course. Screwed up my sexual development to be in this very unfree unfun zone. So it's weird. But my wife is from that world too, and we both left it and it's fucked her up and interesting ways too. So we're always talking about, can you believe this should be used to do? And so it's good because both of us are in the same boat. So we have a pretty. Bridger, what I'm saying is, obviously, we've got a baby coming. My wife and I have a very healthy sex life. You've had sex at least one time. I've had sex at least once and I need the world to know that. Wait, what are you, can you say what you're naming the baby? Okay, so one of those grand pause was the president of Tribeca, the nazarene college that I grew up around. So his name was doctor Homer Adams. So we're naming the baby Homer..
