The other day my sister phoned me to complain (yet again) of the same old shit.
She said, ''People we both know keep phoning me, telling me how you post stuff of nude women and keep talking about orgasms on your fb''
I laughed out loud. Well, after I had started yelling like a rebellious teenager :''Orgasm, orgasm, orgasm, orgasm! I'll be posting and repeating it as much as I want to! Fuck those haters!'' Finally, it seems that I have succeesed in shocking half-numb-from-boredom people out of their drab existential everyday drudgery, havent I?
Being shocked is a good sign, good people. It shows you're still alive. Plus, it's the first-timid, but still- step towards the road to awe and wonder. So basically, I guess my work is done.
Folks, you're on the right track and you're bound to see results pretty soon, I promise.
But the burning question still remains unanswered:
Why do you keep pοsting those semi or butt-naked pictures of skinny models and talk about sexuality and orgasms on you fb wall, Eirini?
First off, because its fun.
Because I am a heterosexual woman that enjoys seeing human bodies of both sexes in all their God-made glory and Enjoys means I am not getting turned on by either of them, unless the context is explicitly pornographic or sexual.
I find it deeply DISTURBING, to say the least,not to mention hypocritical and unnatural IN EVERY SENSE the fact that we live in a culture in which parents of 13 year olds dont mind at all their kids' watching films and pictures of human bodies being violently and sadistically torn to pieces by every kind of weapon imaginable, and yet they object to those very same kids seeing a tasteful and beautiful picture of nude human bodies in all their God-like glory...
EROTICISM IS A BIG PART OF OUR LIVES, IT IS LIFE ITSELF...THOSE WHO DENY IT, SOON WITHER AND DIE OR STAY DEAD INSIDE UNTIL ACTUAL PHYSICAL DEATH COMES ALONG..
Having said all that, there is also the aesthetic part of the whole argument: a young healthy and fit person, just a few years out of God's hands, looks and is as close to physical perfection as possible. As we get older, because of our laziness, poor eating and lifestyle habits , bad thoughts and plain stupidity, we lose this perfection (if you dont believe this, see how athletes'bodies stay young and vibrant looking at an advanced age).
So, we try to justifty our bad choices by telling ourselves the convenient lie ''its all part and parcell of aging, so inevitable''. When we are presented with a perfect human body, no matter its age, our first though is ''''he/she's still young, that's why they look like that'' or ''they are plastic, this is surgery'' or ''sure, if I were as rich as they are or had all this time in my hands, I'd have the perfect body''.
Now here we come to the core of the problem:a naked body is usually disturbing for two reasons: because it arouses in us or in others sexual feelings that we deem as bad and inappropriate or because with its perfection it reminds us of our own imperfections (or a combination of both)
I suggest-and practice daily on my wall- we get over our petty insecurities and phobias and give life a chance...
Oh, and haters?
You needn't call my sister to hate.
Tell it to my face. I wont bite, I promise.Or kick.
