I pity those who long for tidiness. A clean house, a made bed, tidy hair, a structured lifestyle; all for what purpose? Those who are punctual when time is merely a concept. Carrying out mundane chores whilst fighting against a clock. Why make a bed only to return to it the next night…
If we stop defining our significant relationships only as those that are romantic or sexual, being single will take on a whole new meaning. If we broaden our emotional focus from the person we share bodily fluids with to the sum of our friendships, acquaintances, and colleagues, our communities will grow stronger. If we stop treating penetrative sex as the be all and end all of physical intimacy, we will experience greater heights of pleasure. And if we can accept that although sex can be ecstatic and affirming and fulfilling, it is not all those things to all people all of the time, we will relieve it of some of its cultural baggage.
