How does one avoid putting sex on a pedestal? Page 1 of 2    (1, 2)
DarkStorm...nice posts!


Sure sex should be taken seriously in a relationship as a way of sharing love. But there are times that sex can be totally animalistic. That is sex just for the sake of having sex. Hey, why not? :)


I guess it all depends on how one looks at sex...some, myself included, see it as something you only do with the one you love, whether it's making love or having sex with them...while others see nothing wrong with having sex with anyone who's willing...and that can be when they're not in a relationship, or when they are in one. IMO, if one looks at sex as 'just for the sake having sex' I'd wonder if they're the type who would have sex outside of their relationship because 'it doesn't mean anything, it's just sex just for the sake of having it'.

If you have to ask, you need more information than a post in a public forum is going to net you.

but we are all mammals..people love tio place themselves on a 'pedestal' so far above all the other animals..which of course justifies chaining them, absuing them, killing them

when you get down to it we are all friggin' animals, look at the behavior of people as it really is when they are loose from civilization..'civilized' US soldiers raping & killing 12-year old Iraqi girls, etc.

Two answers:

1) Have sex on the floor in front of the pedestal. Knock the pedestal down during sex. Include the pedestal as mobile furniture and then blow it on the pedestal.

Sorry... the guy with the "blowing it... blowing it" post made me do it.

2) Look for more than sex. When you're just out looking for sex you look like a vampire to women. Look for some other value to intimacy with another person, or go look for sheep.

Any worthwhile sex would be pedestal worthy...don't know why this thread has been dead for a while, but would make a good debate!

Never tried a pedestal! Try the dining room table, living room floor, or stairwell!
