THINKING SEX

When you get what you want in your struggle for self,
And the world makes you king for a day,
Then go to the mirror and look at yourself,
And see what that man has to say.

Whose judgement upon him must pass,
The fellow whose verdict counts most in life,
Is the man staring back from the glass.

For he’s with you clear to the end,
And you’ve passed your most dangerous, difficult test,
If the man in the glass is your friend.

If you're wondering about the name of the page- Thinking and sex. Sex and thinking. It is an odd juxtaposition because quite often it is assumed that one doesn’t lend itself to the other. However, we think that thinking is a good idea in general. So, here we deploy our inner Descartes and look at sex. Closely.

Thinking Sex is a channel of contemplation of sex, from multiple points of view, and hopefully helps one understand sex, not completely, nor in most part but still quite substantially.
