There is an argument in support of the sex industry that goes like this: The people who work in the sex industry end up “checking out”, they become drones, numb to the sexual acts they are expected to perform over and over again. This also happens in the “mainstream” workforce. There are so many people who go to work in “legit” professions, who check out mentally every day and hate their jobs. So, what is the difference between this [...]
Sharing a Quote, Confession, and a Question every Thursday
When my mom presented this quote/question to me, I’ll admit, I didn’t get it at first. Maybe its because I was reading it with an audience of one (my mom) and I can’t concentrate with anyone watching me while I read. Not that she was peering down my neck or anything. I just always need time to process things.
Or maybe I didn’t get it at first because we were sitting in [...]
The universe, God, Jesus, Higher Power sure does work in the most amazing, mysterious ways, don’tchathink?
A friend of mine introduced me to this site:
Yes, people, it’s a church that shouts ‘Jesus Loves Porn Stars!’ This is not the type of love I expected from a church, nor is it the love I experienced when I was in the sex industry (and I am extremely grateful to never have been involved in the film industry!)
Through XXX Church I found this site:
Absolute silence leads to sadness. It is the image of death. – Jean-Jacques Rousseau
I hate silence. I write to discuss things. And when there is no dialogue I freak out. When people don’t talk to me, I make up reasons for their silence.
I assume they don’t want to talk to me anymore because I’ve said something they disagree with but don’t want to be impolite.
Or my views don’t match up with theirs anymore.
Or I’ve offended them and was stupid enough [...]
I think people who were addicts make amazing soldiers for God. When we used, we experienced mind altering highs through drugs or sex or gambling or eating, overwhelming experiences that took us out of this world and into another reality. Then we kept chasing those highs. Sometimes we’d settle for a mediocre mind-altering moment, some shitty weed or a quick diddle in the bathroom or a sleeve of Oreos. But, that was just to tide us over. To get our [...]
Sharing a confession, quote, and question every Thursday.
I let my kids eat cake for breakfast this morning. As much as they wanted. It didn’t have frosting on it, so it’s just like pancakes, right?
Letting them help themselves was heavenly. Saying yes to them was heavenly. No arguments. No negotiating. No thinking about what to feed them for one meal. Heavenly. And guess what, it may have been GOOD for them! Not just because it made me feel more at ease [...]
We are reading this for book club. Who isn’t, right? This “mommy porn” novel is so seductive. So naughty. So incredibly…not something I can get into. And I’m bummed!
It’s not that I can’t enjoy really rough, dirty sex. In fact, I prefer it.
It’s not even that the writing is so juvenile and obnoxious that I can’t get into Fifty Shades. Despite the horrible writing, this story is actually a complete and total page turner (or page clicker, since I’m reading [...]
Sharing a question, confession, and a quote every Thursday
I think had an anxiety attack yesterday. I hallucinated a little. My brain froze up. I had to pass out on the couch for a few minutes.
Sometimes I get so overwhelmed.
If I don’t stop, my body takes over and makes me stop.
Today I still have too much on my plate. Don’t we all? Any perceived free time and my brain starts stuffing it full with tasks and goals and creations as soon as my [...]
