I'm the son of Holocaust survivors and grew up in New York and New Jersey. In high school I performed in musicals and became a football "hero" winning the Homecoming Day game with a 65-yard touchdown. I've enjoyed a varied career in the arts: acting on stage, appearing in films, and even doing performance art on the streets of New York. While producing television in Los Angeles, I created a new cable network, The Game Channel, the precursor to GSN (the Game Show Network). I've also written several books. Years ago, with my first wife, Daphna, I co-authored a groundbreaking book about women. BREASTS: Women Speak About Their Breasts and Their Lives (Simon & Schuster) was hailed by the Washington Post as "an important contribution" and the subject of an entire Donahue Show (the Oprah of its time). In my recent memoir, JOYride: How My Late Wife Loved Me Back to Life, I described my year of grieving after the death of my 2nd wife, Joy. A remarkable thing happened-she began communicating with me from the Afterlife and led me on an incredible journey to heal my grief. Ultimately, like the final scene in the movie, Ghost, she found someone, a willing medium, through whom she literally loved me back to life. Had I not experienced it myself, I wouldn't have believed it possible. Those sacred, sexual, supernatural encounters, which I call the Rites of Joy, occurred ten times during that year and helped heal my inconsolable grief. During these other-worldly sexual initiations, I was shown some of the secrets of human sexuality.
