I’ve been seeing the story of MMA fighter, skateboarder & radio host Jason Ellis opening up about sex with men and being bi-sexual popping up all over my computer on all platforms. Completely intrigued, I immediately followed the links and fascinated at what I found. Beyond the obvious, Jason Ellis being a complete stud, he has a interesting story to tell and book out called Still Awesome: The Trials and Tribulations of an Egotistical Maniac,.
“The audacious MMA fighter, and former pro skateboarder, has taken to his popular radio show to share aspects of his life including drug use, the abuse he suffered as a kid and sex with women. Lots of sex with women.”
“In the last couple of years he’s opened up about sex with men. Lots of sex with men.”
“Now in his new book, Still Awesome: The Trials and Tribulations of an Egotistical Maniac, Ellis pulls back the curtain on the now-not-so-secret life of a married man — in love with and sexually attracted to his wife — who at the same time is having sex with men.” Out Sports
“I have a tough exterior,” writes Ellis in a personal essay for The Advocate. “I fight MMA. I’m a skateboarder. I’m tattooed from head to toe. But if you get to know me you know I’m a sensitive man.”
Picking up the moment his action-packed first autobiography left off, Still Awesome: The Trials and Tribulations of an Egotistical Maniac takes readers on a whole new adventure through the life of outspoken SiriusXM host Jason Ellis.
In the New York Times bestselling I’m Awesome: One Man’s Triumphant Quest to Become the Sweetest Dude Ever, readers learned Ellis’ inspiring backstory: Surviving a troubled childhood in his native Australia and becoming a professional skateboarder, then moving to America to realize his dreams, first as an athlete and then as a radio personality.
In this highly-anticipated follow-up, Ellis details his subsequent divorce, substance issues, and most importantly, a series of startling realizations about his childhood sexual abuse.
In remarkably frank terms, Ellis addresses the struggles to embrace his sexual identity, nurture a successful relationship with the love of his life, and transcend his many demons.
Still Awesome is a gripping, hilarious, and ultimately inspiring story that is sure to captivate Jason’s fans – and create plenty of new ones.
