Naked… Nude… Pornography…

(WARNING: Content for persons over 15 years old and may offend :-)) Naked… Nude… Pornography… What’s the difference? Not a lot, and a matter of perception.

Selfish loving – Ayn Rand

50 shades of grey

I asked Florence to write a piece about 50 Shades of Grey since she had both read the books and seen the movie. With her therapist and lawyer/professor background I thought it would an interesting and intelligent experience for us all. Did it turn out as I expected? Read and find out. If you dare.

Talking dirty (A) Advice

Talking dirty? To put this in context, see the first post in this series of how this began. This is by the interesting, often controversial and sassy Mae West (1893 -1980):   "A man can be a great lover, but no matter how well he performs, sex won't compensate for personality, intelligence, consideration, and whatever… Continue reading Talking dirty (A) Advice

Talking dirty (A) Acting

Okay, I've got to be honest, this isn't what you think it is. In fact it wasn't what I thought it to be either.

Soul experience of sex

Sex, sex, sex… that got your attention, 🙂 ? We know what ‘it’ is, don’t we? And how disappointing some of ‘it’ can be. There IS more to sex than what's being portrayed in the media and beyond the discourse of rights and freedom. Sex has soul.
