Somewhere between porn and Puritan lies perfectly hilarious.
I have never been interested in pornography, and honestly, even less drawn to the life of the pilgrim.
Human sexuality is comical. Actually, it’s downright silly.
Even though some people videotape themselves having sexual intercourse, most of us would run away from such a viewing in a combination of embarrassment and horror.
Why? Because for those brief moments when we’re seeking pleasure, we also tend to reject all forms of pride and civilization.
All I know is that when we trivialize sexuality and make it merely a physical act, it normally develops tinges of violence.
When we say it is sacred and must be blessed by God’s presence, we repress our sexual instincts and invite perversion to create a playground in our being.
I am often bawdy.
Raising a bunch of sons, I joked with them and made it clear that sex was not a taboo subject, nor was it hatched in the heavens, surrounded by prayers.
It is one of the most important balances we can achieve: to land our understanding of human sexuality somewhere between monkey and angel.
