So, AliceSkary and I were having a conversation the other day about how the majority of people don’t really know what they like sexually until they’ve had a lot of sex with different partners, and experienced different sexual/play styles. Specifically, she commented on how much my own sexual tastes have changed just in the year-plus we’ve known each other, and the likelihood that they will continue to change as I continue to live and love.
In light of that, and the fact that recent events have feeling like putting myself out there a bit more, she donned the mantle of Dr. Sexy and wrote this for me:
Prescription for: M
Start date: 12-4-2013
End date: N/A, Until Therapeutic Regimen Completed
Therapy: New sex partners
So, yeah, this’ll be a thing.

When you use phrases like, “as long as you’re healthy” these are just a few of the people that your language is excluding. No one owes you health. Being healthy does not make you a good person, and being unhealthy does not make you a bad person. The state of a person’s body does not reflect their soul, their mind, or their worth as a human being.
I might have to try and make this costume for myself.
