Another post from Great PC Games, discussing, this time, sex.
What more wondrous discoveries in life than the joy of sex? It permeates every aspect of our modern life from ads in the morning paper to the 900 channels on Sky at night, sex is the one true link with all of our ancestors. It links us to our fellow animals and the act is primitive and necessary for our species survival. Without is there is no human race, but what is it and what drives us to do it?
Sex usually falls into 2 categories, with various states between. There is sex for love and sex for lust. It is possible to love someone and have lustful sex. We will look at lust first.
Lust is that sex you want with Rihanna or Cheryl Cole. The sex that is urgent, vital and all too fleeting. It’s the sex that you want with someone you don’t actually know, but want because the biological imperative tells you that procreation is part of your reason for being, and without it there will probably be no lasting legacy once you are gone. It is the carnal desire that leads to passionate embraces, monkey sex in public places and oh so many restraining orders. It is the animal part of us that fights to get out and that is restrained by such a delicate leash, and the part of all of us that has kept the human race going for the last 200,000 years (or 6000 years if you are a creationist). Without lust there would be no passion, no desire and practically no modern advertising or pop videos.
Love is all together a different kettle of fish. Love is the bond between 2 people that makes them not mind getting a crick in their neck as they continue to pleasure their partners pubic portcullis long after they would normally have stopped. Love is the drive to let your partner try putting things where they probably wouldn’t normally go just to see if it is enjoyable. Love is the reason that men will go shoe shopping for 93 hours straight just to end up back at the first shop looking at a pair that look exactly like the other million pairs but with a small bow on the vamp (and yes, I had to look it up) Love is the part of you that looks forward to seeing that one special person next, and dreads when they are going to leave. All this makes the sex especially rewarding, because you are so much more forgiving when they accidentally knee you in the groin when they are trying to get better purchase, excuse them grabbing your penis and almost pulling it off when they slip in the shower and forgive the hairs that are almost impossible to pull from between your teeth. Love makes all of that worth while. It is what you hope is left when the lust has gone.
So what have le learnt? Lust is great but love is better. Oh, and just in case you were wondering, masturbation fell well outside all of this because self pleasure is not what the mean when they say you should love yourself, and if you lust after yourself you are probably a narcissist. I’m not criticising, just mentioning. Oh, and self pleasure is OK, or at least I hope it is!
