Selling Myself: Sex Doesn't Always Sell

I fully intend to see my new part-time business come to fruition. I like knowing that eventually, I'll make good money with it. What I don't like, however, is the waiting - and there is a lot of that. 

The thing that frustrates me is that the world is full of sex. Everywhere. Advertisements. Movies. Books. Comedy. Hell, Bratz and Barbie dolls - and comic books. It's everywhere.

And yet, people are still so afraid. Oh, what if someone knew? What if someone was offended? How could I POSSIBLY be okay with that? 

People go home and have dreams about sex. People watch movies and television just for the sexual innuendo. Porn is one of the biggest industries out there. Hustler and Playboy are popular for a reason, y'all.

What's so different about sex toys and lubricants? If you're single, it's a good way to get the positive benefits from orgasms. If you're in a relationship, you can spice things up or maybe help with breaking some boundaries - and sometimes, those boundaries need broken. 

It feels good. Sex. Feels. Good. If it didn't feel good, I would understand - but if sex doesn't feel good for you, then there's probably a problem (and I'd recommend speaking to a doctor). If it does, though, why not enjoy it in every way possible?

If you like food, don't you strive to have the best, most delicious food? Why not have sex that's the best? Plenty of women can't orgasm without clitoral stimulation, and if you can do that while you're already having sex, it's a timesaver and makes the enjoyment more intense for both parties. 

And lube - seriously, it's more healthy for everyone. Without it, if you're not lubricated enough by your natural lubrication, you'll have tearing and excess friction, and that's not good! It's like if you have dry skin or dry eyes, do you just keep rubbing it and scratching it, or do you put on moisturizer or put in eye drops? 

But people are so afraid. They're so scared. Some people still think it's all immoral. I figure, the technology is there, and people are going to have sex anyway, so why not make it better?

And seriously, I've gone to parties with my sister, my mom, and even my grandmothers - if my 80 year old grandma can go to a party, then not be upset or judgmental about it later, why can't people in my own age group? 

Being open about sexuality and enjoying sex and knowing your own body through self-love is healthy! It's good for you. It helps you understand yourself and what makes you happy and what makes you feel good.

Now if I could just convince everyone else of this, it'd make my life much easier - not just in selling Pure Romance, but in having happier, healthier relationships with everyone I know. 


  1. I cover my face when there is sexual stuff on TV shows. Even the ABC shows when it's like just kissing and like they fall on the bed. Ask Dave. He always looks over at me to see if my face is covered.
