Right!?!?! I feel like most of American sexuality is an emphasis on BEING sexy rather than HAVING sex. Sex is messy and animalistic. Sexy is clean and reproducible. It is as though we envy our mass-produced consumables rather than enjoying the unique perspective and experience of being a particular human.
“to perform rather than to feel sensuality.”
That’s some real talk right there.
