Top 10 Horny Documentaries

No, this isn’t a compilation of my favourite porn. Here is a list of my top 10 grab life by the horns documentaries that inspire action taking and the search for flow states.

I watch more documentaries than fictional movies as I find the human condition infinitely more fascinating and complex than aliens or superheroes. Here are real people that are outlaws, misfits, risk-takers and adventurers in the name of flow and peak performance.

Daygame is my flow state but the same principles apply across all these documentaries. If you’ve got other recommendations then let me know below.

Onwards & inwards!

    I think you’d really enjoy Tom Ford’s Visionary documentary as well judging from the list. It’s one of my favourite documentaries as well.
