Pornography

both porn and the church distort man’s perspective on women

I like pornography, most especially on the boundaries of where art becomes porn.

All healthy men like porn.   A man who says otherwise is most probably a liar or sick.  From personal experience I know that women like pornography too.  But there are limits.  Just as in real life there are some things that an honourable man will not do, in pornography  there are some places I will not go.  Some people like pornography that would get them arrested in real life.

However, the whole thing about porn is that it lets people explore stuff outside of their everyday lives.  I have a friend who likes dog porn  I’m more than certain she would not have sex with a dog but she gets off on watching other women being mounted.  Or maybe she is more than friends with her Labrador.  The whole thing gets very blurred.  Dog porn and animal porn also have their own communities and websites.  k9dating.com

I also know that my very best friend watched porn with her partner when their relationship was jaded.  I have no idea what kind of porn that was.  It sort of doesn’t matter because then she went far beyond porn and fucked a lot of younger men, and he is very dead.

For porn comes in many flavours and colours.  Some is hard, and touches the extremes of human behaviour.  The porn I watch is very soft, and is called glamour porn.  Mostly you would get far more erotic in a strip joint in Carson City.

Just because you are reading this I know you have used internet porn.  Which is cool.  If you continually wank off  over porn that is not so cool.

When I was so sick with pneumonia I wanted to die I had internet porn playing on my TV all the time.  I was too ill to react.

But, do I use porn now?

No.  I don’t believe that watching porn is healthy.  And I also believe it objectifies women.

I’d watch porn with you.  But not on my own.

Some say that all women are sluts.  And that a married woman is a whore trying to find a way to escape.  All I know is that a good guy has some limits.

what it is to be young, fit, and attractive

although older women don’t like that sort of thing

Love’s Lost Friendship

whatever you want from me only love and friendship can give

~

I learned that I can still cry

sorrow is the other face of joy

to grieve silently is to be human

lost and broken and yet I’m a man

now all this friend can say is goodbye

you were the only love I’ve ever known

a better time to say farewell

Sails and the Sea

Life is like sailing, you can use any wind to go in any direction

~

scattered like butterflies

under grey autumn skies

reflected and mirrored

haze shimmered and silvered

riding the send of the sea

against a rising tide

ignoring our dreams

our plans and schemes

the sea has a life of it’s own

seems we can’t have it all

for I’m I’m no Bogy

and sadly you’re no Bacall

 

this is not Key Largo

I must go down to the sea again

Dreams and Seascapes

My melancholy soul matches the grey sea

~

Haunting music of the wind, wave counterpointed, grey sky echoed

Frames the seascape seascape bowl with solitary figure walking

A lonely man struggling, changing but ever the same

The loneliness of a beachcomber

now that she’s gone

I pushed her away, into the evening light, a million miles away

~

from afar

where the night ended

a happy cry said it wasn’t over

and all at once I had it all

nothing else mattered

but my tears

wait ’till you see me cry

with tears of joy over my smile

Hobbies for Health

for me, saving the world and everyone in it is only a hobby

Now that I’m recovering from a bloody awful mental affliction, a good friend has suggested that I take up a hobby.  You know what?  After a moments reflection I decided that was a brilliant idea.  So I will take up a hobby.

But what is a hobby anyway?  Where do other ordinary normal day-to-day pursuits become hobbies?  And does a proper hobby have to be mostly harmless, inefficient, laborious, and useless?  I confess I googled hobbies and found a few incredibly long lists of hobbies, some of which activities I would have just taken to be everyday pursuits; like watching television.  No!

But I have a first stab at a short list of potential hobbies which may occupy my time, give me pleasure, be relaxing, and stop me having suicidal thoughts;

  • Art, and I mean doing it, most probably painting.  Thus far in my life the only things I’ve painted were walls, doors, cars, and boats.
  • Angling / Fishing.  I used to fish and gave it up because I felt sorry for anything I caught.
  • Calligraphy.  As it goes I have very good classical penmanship ~ but calligraphy takes that to a whole new level where writing in pen and ink becomes art.
  • Model making, although this seems a bit of a kids pastime.
  • Photography, which I already do a lot of but I could do more and do it better.
  • Reading.  I do a hell of a lot of that, but I’m certain there’s a way to turn casual reading into a constructive hobby.
  • Survivalist.  Not that I live in an earthquake zone, but add some of the other hobbies I’ve already thought about and I’m already a fair way to being a survivalist
  • Travel.  I love to travel, but is it a hobby for me, and could I turn it into one?  Maybe by mixing it with photography and writing.
  • Walking.  On average I walk 5 miles a day, but that’s not serious hobbyist walking.  More serious walking includes hiking, backpacking, and trekking.  So I have joined our local Ramblers Club, (how very English), who meet a couple of times a month and do some serious miles in all weathers.
  • Writing, and I already do some of that too, including being in a local writers group.

I’ve already realised that if you want your normal everyday activity to become a hobby you have to add a lot of time, money, and obsessiveness into the mix.  I can’t even turn my 5 miles a day walk into a hobby without buying a lot more expensive kit.

But, if you have any other ideas for a healthy, relaxing, challenging, difficult, self-improving activity, then please just tell me.
