REMARKS

Since in my own mind many of these posts have been "chapters," I'm splitting some of them out to separate blogs. But also, my audience is divided and quite different, one part from another. Many have dropped out and many have newly arrived. There are recognizable paper "book" versions of some of the posts that fit together.

I find that some people still assume that a blog is a sort of diary. This one is not. It is not for children, either in terms of subject or writing style. It's not written "down." Think academic magazine or column without footnotes.


SOCIAL MEDIA

My name shows up on google+ and twitter, but I only monitor and will not add you. I do NOT do Facebook though someone with the same name does. Please use plain email. My phone landline is in the phone book. I have no cell phone.

"Sex," she said. "SEX."

The computer claims I have posted 2415 different pieces since I began this blog one April Fool's Day.  I soon formed the intention of gathering the posts into something like books, whatever they might be by now.  I wasn't really diligent about standardizing tabs, but on some subjects I did well enough to make a start by using the search strip.  This is the list I'm working with for "sex."  If anyone is hoping to be titillated, they'd best move on.  Mostly this is just generalized discussion of most confusing matters.  No photos.  I may not use everything on this list and I may find others that weren't tagged.  I don't know who writes these little blurbs.  They just appear, the same as the snippets on Google.

Men love sex and women love babies. You could start there. Both drives are very strong or there would be no people by now. If the economy will support the parents and babies (a family) then everything is harmony and ...

But what I want to note is the candification, the Disneyizing, the infantalizing of sex. Did you know that one of the most popular sex-cruising clubs in Paris features pacifiers and baby bottles for the booze? The desirable ...

No, it's not about sex, though when I googled the phrase a large number of those entries came up, demonstrating once again that eroticizing and commodification have modern Western life by the throat, if not some other body ...

When I was “doing education” for animal control, I used to complain that the four main things I needed to talk about were all taboo in polite society: Birth, death, sex and shit. Of course, the reason they cried out for education ...

The kids, full of personality, are capable of having relationships that are quite intimate, but having sex with them will really -- to coin a phrase -- “screw them up.” Why is that? I'm going technical and medical now, which is not ...

Dec 03, 2012
Some strands lead to vampires and werewolves, as well as the confusion of mixing sex and violence, either in actuality or in media. The whole genre of mutilating, sexy fantasy comes into play. So does our fascination with ...

Believe me, this doesn't even come close to the videos of Russian children living in sewers like packs of rats, doing sex acts for food money. No one can see them from any terrace, but try YouTube. The premise of the book is ...

(Historical reference. Look it up.) Or is it in the consumer, who doesn't want all the fuss and bother of having to develop full-scale relationships in order to have sex ? (Why is it always about sex? Why isn't it about money?

Another example: many men may like sex, but if a specific opportunity to engage in a quickie is so risky that it may destroy his family and career, he may pass up that opportunity. This ability to properly assess risk and ...

It's 1985, his centennial year, and the writer of the movie wants you to know there's more about this guy than sex. Switch sides from red pieces to white -- this time it's love, not sex. But the point of origin is the same: love of an ...
