This entry is about sex.
Have you ever noticed sex being mentioned in a serious context, away from WB dramas and teen romance novels? and conversely, How many times have you noticed sex being passed off, flung away, thrown out into conversations as jokes or to impress someone? Thats all i know about sex nowadays. A blatant remark about sex is now tied with "how do you like your coffee?" or an inquiry about how your day was. Is that not incredible to anyone else?
I know we all "talk about sex" (baby), but its becoming less and less about sex and more about sexual gratification. Sex is something that is a leap of faith, utter trust and dependancy. If you can have comfortable silence you can have sex. If you're mature enough to know that you're too immature to have sex, then you can have sex later. If you can allow someone to see you looking your worst, if you can come off as a complete idiot, if you can just listen or depend or feel safe, then you can have sex? I'm not sure, exactly. There is no guidebook, no sparknotes, no set list of rules for sex.
Where is the line between "Making Love" and "Sex"?
In all honesty, i dont really think there is a line. Maybe one of those jets of lights that you see in Mission Impossible movies that if you cross some sort of silent alarm goes off to signal intrusion. Can there be something tangible, a true marking point, between these two very blurry poles? It wouldn't make sense if there was. I think there comes a breaking point, an impulse, because no matter how much you think about it, it will be an impulse of some sort, and should be, and when that breaking point comes, somehow, someway, you just know. Of course, this comes solely from my thoughts and not experience.
I want teenagers having sex to be shocking again. I just think it's just more fun that way.
