Sexuality & Power.
At this point the one little explaining line on this blog is “Awakening to my sexuality.” It occurs to me that I can’t clearly see what the word “sexuality” means. It can mean preferring same or similar sex organs to the ones a person has or different ones, as in someone who is “homosexual” or “heterosexual.”
But this is a very reduced sense of it in my view.
Yes, I am seeking out penises, or yes, I’m seeking out vaginas doesn’t really cover what I’m interested in.
Sexuality is about being physically open in the world. Sexuality has something to do with one’s capacity to feel.
And I think that when someone is sexually open and sharing sexually with themselves and/or others it helps with how this person is engaging with the world—more fully engaged, the cells of the body are awake and perceiving.
I am in pursuit of my sexuality because I believe it to be important. I believe that it can help support who I am even apart from sex acts themselves.
People who are choosing to be sexually open are powerful.
