  • Wayne is all about connection and travel focusing mainly on men who love men to create the greatest adventure of their lives

  • Self-care has become more vital-emphasis is on essential oils, touch-massage and touch therapy, classes
  • Oxytocin takes 20 seconds to release during a hug, a “bro hug” is not effective or long enough so hold a hug for longer than 20 seconds
