Terje Brought Pansexuality to Us All

Betty and Terje

This past week we lost a champion of sex and wonderful soul, Terje Gammelsrud. 

His magazine, Cupido, was everything I always wanted...beautiful, authentic images of sexual expression inclusive of gender, orientation, and preference.  I remember the first time I thumbed through Cupido.  It was a journey.  Sex acts and people of every persuasion titilated by senses and I found myself drawn to specific pages that I never thought I would find stimulating.  That was his art - he presented democratic sex that left the reader more compassionate and self aware than they were before experiencing his magazine.

Terje and Cupido were pansexual before we knew what that was...he was one of the greats. 

Each time Betty and I traveled to Norway, Terje would swoop in and take us to the most amazing restaurants, introducing us to the sexual intelligentsia.  We ate, drank and talked into the wee hours of the morning.  Those sort of heady conversations about sex and the state of humanity don't happen often enough.  

Terje made you think...and feel...the world was a better place because of him.  He will be missed.

Sorry for your loss

I was sorry to hear about your loss: we seem to be living through "interesting times" as the Chinese curse says, which makes every piece of bad news even harder to bear.

It also makes every bit of positivity, especially the work you do here at dodson&ross, raising awareness and helping strangers, just more & more important, a true light shining in the darkness.
