Se o sexo é extremamente importante para nós, macacos humanos, então desejar sexo com alguém devia ser desejar algo importante com esse alguém. Mas ao invés, o desejo sexual é tido como o mais raso dos desejos.

Se a pessoa quer só sexo com você é porquê ela não te ama.

Como se o sexo não envolvesse emoções. Como se sexo com amor não fosse o melhor tipo de sexo. Como se “se importar com alguém” e “sentir o prazer desse alguém” não fossem quase a mesma coisa.

And in turn this means we all just want a hug, we just want to be loved, but since we can’t we try all sort of dumb stuff, like getting ultra-rich and super-famous and über-sexy and extra-learned, as maybe ways to be loved, and it all backfires monstrously and we get eco-catastrophe, consumerism, plastic surgery and Maffesoli.

The most precious thing in life is the fleeting, vaporous, light moment when we can see the world through the same eyes as someone else, when we are really together, when we share a thin slice of meaning with another person. But the world seems made in a way to spoil and destroy this shared meaning. Read More »
