5-Point Friday #1
5-Point Friday - 10 May 2019
This is the first weekly segment of our 5-Point Friday series, a short list of things we're enjoying or pondering this week.
1 ― Article we're reading ―
We found an older article on the Daily Mail about Tantric Sex which we found very, very interesting. We had heard of it before but knew little about it. In a nutshell, Tantric sex is less focused on achieving an ejaculatory or clitoral orgasm, and more focused on circulating your sexual energy between you and your partner. If that sounds somewhat confusing, we thought the same thing.
2 ― Video we're watching ―
Vice magazine did a fascinating documentary on the Japanese Love Industry. In Japan, every aspect of intimacy has been compartmentalized and put-up for sale. In other words, if you'd like to hire a special someone for the evening just to cuddle or just to talk, don't worry, they've got you covered. You name it, they offer it.
3 ― Book we're loving ―
F*cked: Being Sexually Explorative and Self-Confident in a World That's Screwed. A really fascinating read that discusses past and present sexual norms and their relationship to us in the modern world. Finished this book in nearly one sitting. The authors―Krystyna Hutchinson and Corinne Fisher―are both hosts on their podcast Guys We F****d. It is somewhat crude, but we found ourselves laughing along with them. If you like sexual humor, this podcast may be for you.
4 ― What we're learning ―
Apparently, there is a somewhat popular sexual partner calculator to see how you stack up. Curious to see how you fare for your age group? Check it out here.
5 ― Quote we're pondering ―
“Everything in the world is about sex except sex. Sex is about power.”
― Oscar Wilde
That's it for our first episode of 5-Point Friday.
