Marc Barnes, a blogger i just stumbled across, wrote a fantastic piece about what he calls “sustainable sex.”

He writes with wit and wisdom, and is wicked good with images and turns of phrase.

For example:

Our culture is sexually schizophrenic.

All in all, we cannot make up our minds between getting our freak on and collapsing into an armchair, bored and dissatisfied.

In their death throes, humans fade into nothingness while flailing in fits of energy. At the end of all action, there is a panic of action. This saddens me to no end, for sex is awesome, beautiful, unifying, and life-giving, and yet we see mirrored in our sexual culture what we see in death — grotesque action on the way to final inaction. Is sex dying?

Pornography and subsequent masturbation have set an impossibly high standard for women. Men have seen hundreds of fake-breasted, airbrushed, aroused-to-the-point-of-myocardial-infarction pixels, all contorted into positions that would make an Olympic gymnast proud — before they have lain with an actual, warm-blooded woman.

Read the full blog post.  He makes some comments about contraception to which i don’t necessarily subscribe, but his point that it fuels what he refers to as a consequence-free approach to sex — which is very damaging to us — is well taken.

Barnes encourages his readers to, respectfully, give our culture the bird and walk away from what it is trying to sell us in terms of sexuality. Are we sexually schizophrenic? Absolutely.
