Do you think that kind of sex club is *sleazy*?
Yes. B. No. C. No opinion. D. I am too overcome by sensual
urges to respond articulately. E. I am too overcome by nondual
being to respond articulately. F. Question does not compute: what's the
difference between nondual being and sex?
Feel free to add your own
multiple choice answers.
Seems that, when it comes to expounding on
nonduality, that every other topic is fair game... donuts, incense,
photography, painting, hiking, dogs and other animals, martial arts,
physics, psychology, yoga/meditation, love and loss, gender, wisdom at
the Waffle House, gardening, the creative process from poetry to parenting,
metaphor after metaphor, on and on...
So, why not sex?
you cut one square from the quilt, calling it inappropriate?

carry that frankness into distant polite companies... such as at
the shower, when I made the 'mistake' of mentioning the color of poison
ivy scabs (green) and wound up silencing a roomful of people who stared in
It is that way with sex, as well. It is either not
mentioned, or mentioned in veiled ways, through jokes or
euphemisms. What would it look like to have as frank a relationship with
one's sexuality, as one might have with one's personality tendencies? There
is nothing innapropriate to be found, then.
It will be interesting to
see what comes from JP's club. Will it be more veils, or more views? Will
it further a greater understanding within community, and of oneself? Will
JP rise to the role of moderator, and support honest and even 'safe'
exploration and sharing? This all remains to be seen... until then, it
seems premature to label it as 'sleazy', or anything else... until then,
and perhaps even then, any label would be pure projection, more a
reflection of one's preferences, than the facts of the
