He excites me
and that scares me
There is no going back now
label or no label
He has written his name
forever upon my soul
In blood and cum
an indelible magic seal
That cannot be broken
‘be cool’ I tell myself
No need for vain affirmations
or trinkets of promises
But what harm could there be
in one little vow?
Behind the Scenes
Many of the women I work with have been cut off from their longing…
…Oh it’s still there, but they feel like they can’t admit it out loud, let alone express it to the object of their longing (*gasp!*).
But here’s the thing – psychologically, that fear (whatever that fear is), is an ILLUSION. You’re not fooling anyone by attempting NOT to put a label on it.
Even fuck buddies are what they are.
And I would argue, that is highly unlikely to have a fuck buddy without having some sort of affinity for them. So why not just openly admit that to yourself?
Like…hey, out of all the men or women in Pensacola, if suddenly this building were on fire or the zombie apocalypse hit, I would probably care more about YOUR safety than a perfect stranger’s. 😉
What consistently hurts the psyche, emotional, and spiritual fields the most is living in denial or repression.
It becomes a prison of your own making.
So do the thing already!
Have the feelings. Share them if you want. And if they’re rebuffed, don’t shit on yourself for having tried.
It’s their loss. Maybe they’re not ready or they’re just unwilling. Doesn’t matter. This is YOUR adventure. Make it count!
