Kai Cheng Thom on real sex talk
It is time to talk about sex – not just the ins and outs and how-to’s, but also the good and bad and ugly. To talk about our differences and how it is possible that for some, sexuality is a playground or an exciting new frontier, and for others it has been a prison. How it is possible to feel as though one has at once had too much sex and not enough. It is time to talk about the jealousy, the wanting, the waiting, the scared children that still haunt so many of us. About the sex we were denied, the sex that we survived, the sex that blew open the locked doors of our haunted hearts and made us scream and moan and cry with rage and ecstasy. The sex we haven’t had yet – the sex we have only begun to imagine. The sex that sets us free.
