A Short History: From Islam to Sex Positive Feminism & Activism
With a background in Sociology and Women’s Studies and travels to 35 countries, Mojo has observed, how sexual dysfunctions in society affects the world.
Though he was born a Muslim, Mojo saw firsthand, the way Islam punishes women who dare to be different when it comes to her sexuality. Islam has harsh sanctions on a woman for exploring her sexuality outside of marriage compared to men who have much more freedom.
Mojo’s travels and education gave him inspiration, ideas, and insight to make a difference in the world but also to have fun!
In May 2018, the Kilauea volcanic eruption destroyed the Hedonisia community. The property is now covered in 75 to 150 feet of lava rock.
After the loss of his community, Mojo moved to Portland, OR where he created an apartment based ‘Micro-Community‘. He now lives there while he manages the Crowdfund to return and rebuild Hedonisia Hawaii.
Mojo developed Sex to Save the World with interns at Hedonisia. The volcano destroying the community ironically now gives him the time to bring these discussions out into Portland and the broader world.
Mojo in his own words!
During my travels, I’ve always looked for places where I truly feel at home. I like people who are a bit kooky, liberal, sexy, idealistic and quirky. Portland is that place. It’s like Amsterdam, Berlin or Copenhagen cities that also have that also have that ‘edgy’ vibe!
Portlandia is a show that affectionately pokes fun into the reasons this loveable town is so different from other cities in the world. It will give you an idea of why I love it so much! Portland is one of the most ethical sex-positive and feminist cities in the world.
I’m a member and volunteer at Sex Positive Portland, one of the most ethical sex-positive communities in the world.
I became a feminist because I like women; both as friends and as lovers. I have female friends with varying levels of intimacy. So I’m pretty happy! I’m always amazed why more men are not feminist. If you are a man and you like women, you should be a feminist. it’s that simple!
