Tawdry Sex 


Some people seem to have to think of sex as a bad or nasty or demeaning thing in order to get aroused. But why? My theory is it’s how they deal with their insecurities and embarrassments and fears about sex. If they felt comfortable with sex, would they need to fortify themselves with outlaw bravado, or take pride in their fancied naughtiness? Would they have to talk dirty, play games, depersonalize and humiliate anyone? These are the things about sex they find so much fun? Why not simply be themselves, just normal, decent people enjoying something that is perfectly natural?
