Please note: This piece discusses my personal sex experiences in some detail. Family members and others who don't want to read about that, you may not want to read this.
And how can it be reached?
I've been thinking a lot lately about sexual intimacy. I wrote about it in my recent exegesis on masochism; I wrote about it in my review of the Japanese movie about the blow-up sex doll. I've been thinking about what sexual intimacy is, and how it's different from sex. And I've been thinking about why it's often so elusive... and what we can do to create it.
Thus begins my latest piece on the Blowfish Blog, On Intimacy. To find out what I think we can do to create sexual intimacy -- and what the paradoxes and pitfalls are that get in its way -- read the rest of the piece. (And if you feel inspired to comment here, please consider cross-posting your comment to the Blowfish Blog -- they like comments there, too.) Enjoy!
