Sex Tips for Restless Youth

May 11, 2000

Do you experience sexual problems? Do you have trouble getting aroused, or having sex that is fulfilling, or simply meeting the right partners to share that aspect of your life? Chances are you do — just have a look at the magazine rack in any grocery store, and it’s clear from all the advice columns and feature articles just how sexually lost and frustrated modern men and women are. Unfortunately, these magazines only offer symptomatic treatment (otherwise, they wouldn’t have to run the same articles over and over every month!), no real, radical solutions. And to date, few people have really dared to be open about their troubles, thanks to the social pressures to be “successful” in all affairs. So, in keeping with our general program of providing aid wherever it is needed, we offer some tips:

Sexuality as art — now there’s a start. But more art “about” sexuality? It’s doubtful that the world of images will ever belong to us again… that’s just another diversion of our attention to that domain from this world, where we should be practicing doing, being, feeling with one another, not with the dangerous safety of an object. Make love and speak about your best kept secrets, your blackest needs, the demands the culture of fear places on your sexuality, held hostage as it is (never fear, you’re not the only one who thinks you have things to hide — your secret’s safe with all of us!)… We can get out of here, together, but first we have to be honest to figure out where the fuck we are!

To find indulgences that simultaneously satisfy and subvert our programmed, poisonous desires, and thus remake ourselves — that is the key.
