Having Sex without Having Sex Part 2
Back in May, I decided to use my quiet time (aka, Covid quarantine) to research the possibility of having sex without actually having sex. My findings were originally posted on Throats to the Sky. Sources utilized include my own mind and marijuana.
Alright, Quarantine Sex Physicist Friends. Let’s continue.
I’d planned to center today’s studies around dreams, but then this occurred to me:
Obviously mutual masturbation, whether together or apart, is different than having sex without having sex. But why? Is it the physicality? The interaction? The acknowledgment? If it’s acknowledgement, what’s the difference between sex without having sex (heretofore referred to as SWHS) and two people masturbating to each other’s image without knowing the other is doing it?
I determined that the difference is that while unacknowledged mutual masturbation might be mentally and physically intense, it’s ultimately coincidence. SWHS is energetic. It’s spiritual. It’s the energy of sex stripped down.
Does that mean that touching oneself has no place at all in SWHS? It does not mean that. But solo-touch during SWHS isn’t masturbation. It’s the a spontaneous, energetic response to someone else’s actions. What follows is a bunch of excited and disorganized notes about nocturnal emissions and how Amir claims have sex and/or do yoga in my sleep.
