Quote for February 10th, 2012

"We settle for so-so sex because most of us don't know how sexual we could be; we know only how sexual we are. How sexual we are has been shaped by decades of indoctrination by ... family and friends, teachers, religious leaders, and romantic partners, not to mention a society that worships a bewildering fusion of childlike sexual innocence and cynical, nihilistic hedonism.... So what is normal? It all depends on what's normal for you." -Anita H. Clayton, Satisfaction: Women, Sex, and the Quest for Intimacy

Quote for February 5th, 2012

"We made love. How pedestrian the words look--trite, worn, practically featureless with use--but how can one better describe that which happens when it happens? that creation? that magic blending? I might say we became figures in a mesmerized dance before the rocking talisman of the moon, starting slow, so slow ... a pair of feathers drifting through clear liquid substance of sky ... gradually accelerating, faster and faster and finally into photon existence of pure light ... as my whole straining body burst like fluid electricity into hers." -Ken Kesey, Sometimes a Great Notion
