I came across this article today and I dug it and wanted to share.
Pleasure is one of the great loves of my life, so yes I think its fair to say I may just qualify as a hedonist.
Please have a read and I hope you enjoy it also.
Here’s a article that I found in Guardian Australia this morning as written by the author from her upcoming book:
Self Contained: Scenes From A Single Life by Emma John.
I really enjoyed this article. I am not a single woman but have danced around many of the subjects discussed in this article over a number of years because I feel that all the points presented are very important for both genders across the board.
The message that I have tried to communicate is that marriage shouldn’t be the only option in our lives. I strongly believe in this sentence.
And this article and I gather Emma’s book goes deeper to make this point albeit as a woman who understands the scope of the debate much better than I can and all the factors involved.
Please have a read of the article if this is something you think about on occasion. Its really good food for thought.
Its also a subject poignant at the moment as the current Australian conservative government and their friends in supporting organisations seek to try on a proposal for people to stay in relationships for two years after trouble makes itself known.
This in my opinion is a bridge too far and it will be interesting if they seek to give it oxygen in this term of government.
Anyway, that’s me for this one.
Cyndi L – Speaking Truth
This is a good read IMHO.
Michelle opens up about pornography and how it has affected her.
And I can see how Women can feel like this, living and existing in a highly sexualized world where Women have to compete against a patriarchal regime that seeks to control them and their sexuality at every drop of the hat.
Thankfully, times are a changin and those trickle changes will continue to bring balance to the gender spectrum as the years go by.
Please have a read of this link above (and support writers like Michelle) if you are interested in my primer noting that Medium is a paid subscription site.
I have barely touched on this massive subject with this post but maybe the subject interests you and you will dig deeper because to do so will take you on a great journey.
A journey that I hope makes our world a better place for all one day in the future.
