In previous journal posts I've mentioned some negative things I don't intend to take with me--shame and limitations. Feel me? Cool.
So now I'm thinking about the opposite.
In general, I want flow. I want life to feel easy. I want to desire things and get them, and I don't want anything to get in my way.
And for this month, I am focusing on more physical matters than I usually do.
What's Not Good about the past:
Societal Shameball of Body and Sex Issues
Something really struck me. Pornography is a $ huge $ industry. People pay others to act out public fantasies. It's a service. Not one everyone will offer, but it's a service to others.
People (mostly guys) will pay a lot of money to enjoy these films in secret. But afterwards, the stars are thrown away like trash, and due to rampant judgement can lose the ability to have a career or a long-term love. Even though a huge number of people bought their movies.
By 2013 it's time to embrace sexuality. Considering that it's the reason humans still exist--we should probably stop punishing ourselves for liking it.
I'm not a big fan of porn, let me be honest. Nor fashion magazines. A beauty standard should not be based on vaguely humoid pictures that've been professionally diced, groomed and manipulated.
So here's a new way to look at it.
How about we are all born sexual, but it comes to be expressed in different ways as deemed appropriate for our station in life. It may be more comfortable to think of it as sensuality.
According to me, sensuality is the enjoyment of being in one's body and the senses.
If you think women haven't been sensual or sexual their whole lives, despite the possibility of shame or judgement, you are flipping blind.
