The unwanted advantage

Anything that draws us out of the mainstream is a good thing. The mainstream is a near-total state of identification with work, relationships, politics, religion, sex, dogs, cats, money, cars, boats, travel plans, dogs, money markets—even furniture! Sickness takes us out of the mainstream. So does rejection, loss, crisis, sexual confusion, left-handedness and loneliness. We can also step out of the mainstream in silence. In silence we don’t know who we are.

The unhappiness of the young

According to a recent Canadian study, 79 percent of young men and 84 percent of young women report significant sexual problems, including low levels of satisfaction, low desire, erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, an inability to achieve orgasm and injurious pain. The study suggests they are having sex not because they want to but because they think they should.

In “should” is the death of innocence.
