Let’s get to know Jorge a little more:
INSTINCT: How did you get into podcasting?
JORGE SANCHEZ: We started the “Men of A Certain Age (MOACA) the as two guys in our 40s(one straight, one gay (me)) having the conversations to promote wellness. We have a great time every time we get together and talk.
INSTINCT: What’s the story behind the Men of a Certain Age podcast?
JS: My co-host Carlos Escanilla and I are friends from the gym and we would alway find ourselves having some pretty insightful conversations which really helped me out. One day I suggested we record them and put it out as a podcast. The rest is history.
INSTINCT: How do you keep that thicc and beefy bod so fit?
JS: I follow a powerlifting program as the foundation of my strength training. It’s fun to go lift big weights and feel myself getting stronger as I push for more PRs. It not only builds my physical strength, it also builds up my confidence.
INSTINCT: What’s something about you that most people wouldn’t know?
JS: I just started graduate school pursuing a masters in mental health counseling.
INSTINCT: What brings you joy?

INSTINCT: What do you find you are complimented on the most?
JS: People really get into my salt & pepper hair.
INSTINCT: What, to you, defines sexy?
INSTINCT: What is your proudest moment in your life thus far?
JS: Making the decision to go back to school and begin the change in my career path.
INSTINCT: What haven’t you accomplished, personally or professionally, that you are wanting to do in the next 2-3 years?
JS: Over the next few years I’ll be completing my MS in Counseling at Nova Southeastern University with my goal being to attain my Licensed Mental Health Counseling certification and go into private practice helping people with their own personal and professional development.
INSTINCT: Have you found love? If so, what is the best part of your relationship and what do you love most in your partner?
JS: I’ve been lucky to have found love more than once. Today I’m with a really great man, Robbie Elias, who brings me so much love, support and laughter. We have a great time together and I’m really lucky to have him in my life.
Rapid fire question time:
- What is your all-time favorite movie?
- Who is your biggest celebrity crush?
- Henry Cavil
- What is your favorite cheat meal or snack?
- Pizza & French fries
- If you were stuck on an island for eternity, what music album would you want to have with you?
- This is probably the hardest question on this list. I love music and there are so many great albums… but as a (gay) man of a certain age I’d have to choose Madonna Immaculate Collection
INSTINCT: What does it mean to be featured as our Instinct Hottie?
JS: It feels nice to be recognized by my community and grateful for the opportunity to share a little bit more about me with the world.
