Yeah, the recent porn thread at ND’s, where once again some meatsack is doing the whole all porn women are being raped crap again, ala Gail Dines, so on, plus the whole no one could like that, blah blah blah blah…same fuckin’ dance I’ve done 1000 times before and it still seems like my toes are swollen from all the stomping.
You know what, on Saturday I engaged in some serious heavy duty full contact wrestling. Like, actual wrestling and fighting kind of stuff (i.e., not sex). With…a dude. Who is taller and heavier than me by a fair amount (and when I say fair, I mean like a foot taller and prolly around 75-90 pounds). I twisted my wrist. I have skin missing from my knees and elbows. He does as well, and his jaw was sore. In short, this resulted in pain. I am sure the crowd over an ND’s would want to have him arrested for assault and battery. I, however, had an awesome time. It was fun. It was good exercise. It was cathartic. And behold….I consented to all of it and enjoyed it no matter what it might have looked like to any body else or what they would think of it… I had FUN. I do not regret doing it at all.
Eye of the beholder and all, and guess what, the only fucking beholder that matters on that front (or in a porn scene, or anything else) is the one who is engaging it the activity.
The peanut gallery can take a walk, you know?
