Standing in the River Too Long

Inspired by Søren Kierkegaard (1813–1855)’s quote, “To dare is to lose one’s footing momentarily. Not to dare is to lose oneself”. The titled responsion is…

If identity of the self is the way forward, I dare you to dare, to challenge yourself but please do so within an Ethos of your ideal moral character. Virtue is, in part, a act, a performance and a destination worthy of living.

Or is Important — Sex on TV is Porn

Inspired by Gore Vidal (1925–2012)’s quote, “Never pass up a chance to have sex or appear on television”. The titled responsion is

Crossing the Rubicon alludes to no going back. Once you appear for the world to see in a sexual context, the act defines you in sotto voce. Can you hear the whispers blowing in the wind? You can’t undo the wind, entropy doesn’t work that way, however deterministic complex systems may be.

Is it important for us to know what porn and the sex industry are all about — especially if it’s so hard to find a porn movie that has a plot? Well, it really depends.

If you are a guy who wants to see sex and porn on TV then it’s important to know that what you are watching is porn, and not pornography. There’s nothing wrong with seeing sex on TV, but the truth is that there is no real sex in porn movies. This is true not just of porn movies but of all porn.

What people like to do is say that porn is real because it looks real, and it has a story behind it. This is not true. It’s important to look at pornography and sex on TV in a completely different way. People who do porn movies for fun are usually doing it because they want to.
