This topic is truly confusing when you mention it on the surface. A lot of people think this subject is fairly disturbing… until they get the chance to engage in it themselves. We try to keep our young kids from knowing about it, only to discover they learn it before we can teach them anything. For some people it can be the most disgusting thing on the planet, but yet many of the great artworks in history exhibit it. It is “sex.” Prostitutes are often vilified for selling it, but if you go out on a date (and pay for everything) and then have sex afterwards it is perfectly legal. Some people will withhold sex until they are married. I have heard from some of those who did and many of them actually regretted that decision. It is one of our basic needs. How can one thing that is often declared to be so nasty be something that we all essentially need? When you think about it, the entire human race would become “extinct” without it. Have you looked around at how many people you see in the world? That means that there must have been a “whole lot of sex” going on. How do you feel about it? Do you consider it to be taboo? Do you have a great desire and need for it? Many people don’t want to see it, but yet many of those same people love to “engage in it.” Men crave it, but then again I believe that women do too. A lot of what we do often becomes centered around the concept of sex. Of course, most sex drives are strongest during your earlier years, but does that mean you no longer need it after a certain age? Maybe we all need a different perspective on it. For example, most men love to see a naked woman. Yet, when I sent to the southern beaches of France (and South Beach in Miami, Florida) and saw women topless it seemed to be “perfectly normal.” Why was that? I think a lot of our values and beliefs come from what we are “taught” and many people look at sex from what they have “learned.” If sex were so evil then why is so much of it happening around the world? Is it impossible to believe that if we lessened our restrictions on sex there would be less rapes and physical abuses? I don’t think anyone knows the real answers to this question, but if people have a general addiction for sex then it seems obvious that they would go to exorbitant means to get it. As much as we preach against it, we all need it. Maybe we all need to change our perspectives on it or maybe we should just keep things the same. Only you can determine what works best for you. Thank you for checking out my Daily Thought and always I wish you the very best that life has to offer.
