Does anyone ever even know what they really want from their lovers?

I think many would just answer "more." I want to stop asking what I want because that's the banal answer I will give myself. We are so muddied and conflicted. But how to banish these undefined and gluttonous wants?

Complacency

We play along to make our days feel lighter, while ignoring that our months are becoming heavier and heavier. Years? They will drown us. Why are we committing such a crime against each other and ourselves?

The death of an ex-lover's lover

can be both a funeral and a wedding simultaneously in your heart. Not a celebratory wedding, but one with a feeling of interconnection with that person who held your former lover.

Ethical Slut

"[Wilhelm] Reich theorized that without the suppression of sexuality and the imposition of anti-sexual morality, you could not have an authoritarian government, because people would be free from shame, and would trust their own sense of right and wrong. Such people are unlikely to march to war against their wishes, and we would like to think they would be unlikely to agree to operate the death camps too."
From The Ethical Slut by Dossie Easton and Catherine Liszt (pen name of Janet Hardy).
