I have been blogging for a long time (although not a frequently as I am now) and the one subject I have not talked about is sex. For those who really know me that may seem a bit odd. But, I feel that sex is one of those subjects that can be very vague and almost all encompassing. Yet, it can be almost too easy to talk about. So, I find myself talking about subject that I feel are a little more difficult to articulate.
This is not a subject that I have avoided because I am afraid to talk about it. It is just the opposite. I can talk about sex all day. I would be lying if I said I didn't think about it because I do. Let's face it, I am a man, it is what we think about the most. The problem I have with blogging about sex is that the subject too broad.
Sex is more than just talking about positions and actions. It can be about sexual preference or orientation. Or, I can joke about it, and say that I do have sexual preference and love to be orientated whenever possible. But see, to me, that is too easy. I have never been the type of guy to talk about sex with my male friends. There are very few males that I have discussed the physical act of sex with. I am just not comfortable with it.
Then are the roommates that I have had that have heard pounding their girlfriend into the wall. Well that is what it sounded like to me. I didn't feel like getting into that subject. I wasn't sure there was much to talk about. Do I ask about technique? Or do I ask if the wall needs to be re-plastered?
In any case, I believe that sex permeates everything around us. It is on the Internet, it is on TV, in magazines, it is what we wear, and of course it is what we do...or for some people, what we don't do. I am always shocked how prudish this country can be when it comes to sex. Yet, just about everything we see and read has some sexual innuendo. However, people will be up in arms when you see a nipple on live TV, but you can see the crack of some one's ass in a Jay Z video.
Even though we are prudish (we as in America...not me), I do feel that with all the images in the media we have become a bit oversexed. I say this because of the fact that I have read and heard about many women who are just not satisfied with the man they are with because he is going for self. This could or be directly related to women being objectified. I know when I was a kid there weren't any video hoes.
My point is that talking about sex can be a grand task. There is a lot more to sex than who is doing who.
Sex blogs can have you writing for days. I was even thinking of dedicating a week to it just to see what we could come up with. If the topic is sex, you'll never run out of things to talk about...which may or may not be a good thing. Sex is only bad when it is used to punish, harm, control, exploit or objectify. Otherwise, it's all good :)
