i'm wondering if perhaps Varitek seeks a sexual experience to satisfy the physical senses, and you are looking for something abstract and symbolic? maybe that's where this clash of ideals comes from?


i could be way off... it's been awhile since i've studied human development. my current job doesn't allow me to put any sort of theory into practice. so i'm perhaps trying to make something out of nothing.
I think I'm probably

Introversion
Intuition
Feeling
Perceiving

You could be right.

What is your line of work?

I agree. At least it is part of the picture.

(overshare time: it took me a really long time to have an orgasm after being sexually active. it was so built up in my mind as the be all end all of the human experience that for a while I couldn't believe that what I was experiencing was an orgasm...it just didn't seem good enough)

I think it is what happens when the world is cut off and it is just you and your lover that shapes my opinions. The spirit and the flesh are one in an attempt to create palpable love. That is why I think from a romantic point of view. Sex is an experience of oneness.

Not in that sense, but overall, being a permanently single 17 year old ... I am kind of missing some things.

I am just about the opposite of Screwtape so you are probably onto something:

extrovert
wtf is the difference between intuition and sensing?
thinking
probably judging but again not clear on the difference

I do see sex as a way to satisfy the physical senses, also I must admit some satisfaction in the "conquest" / sealing the deal with a very attractive man, it's a fun game to want something and then get it. (not that I do so deceptively, I try to treat people fairly and respectfully and such, but I like saying "he's hot, I want him" and then 5 hours later having him.)

But as I told Screwy yesterday I have had sex in a loving relationship. It was nice, and had something that random/NSA sex doesn't, but angels did not come down from the heavens to serenade us.

There is way to much of a mystique put on sex, especially when you're young... There is a U2 song that comes to mind when I think of my first time:

"Is That All?"

Awww, I didn't have an easy time of it in high school either. College kicks ass. You select a place where other people you are already likely to get along with/be on the same page as have also selected. Good way to clarify the pool.

HOW DO YOU KNOW THIS?
