It’s strange to me how humans sometimes perceive of sex. It’s almost as if it’s a separate entity from us that exists parallel to our consciousness. It hangs there casting shadows on our minds. Rustling up dust in dark corners and shining light in places the sun has dismissed.
When animals engage in coitus they are supposedly just following their instrincts. Whether or not that is the entire truth of it we may never know.
When humans have sex we are making a decision. A choice. We are seeking to obtain one or more of its many benefits.
The fact that animals masturbate tells me they are not simply going on instinct. That like us they are pleasure seekers.
The most interesting thing of all about sex is how powerful it is. It’s like a tiny nuclear warhead lodged in each of our brains. It can build us up. It can just as easily destroy us. It can be leverage or weakness. It’s heaven and damnation depending upon your situation.
That’s what makes masturbation so crucial. All of sex’s power comes from the craving for a mate. When we ‘fuck ourselves’ as it were, we overcome this basic limitation and take control back from hormones and instincts. In many ways masturbation is liberation and therefore is to be praised and embraced.
Give me mastubration or give me death!
