1. We learn from our mistakes. What sex or sexual mistakes have you made and learned from, What was the lesson learned?
I learned, when I was much younger and far more stupid, that sex is not synonymous with a relationship or love.
2. What risk (sexual or not) would you take if you knew you would not fail?
I would perform for a living.
3. At what time in your life have you felt most passionate and alive?
This. Right now.
4. What one piece of advice about sex would you offer the virgin you?
Wait. Wait until it means something. Wait until its a story worth sharing.
5. What are you avoiding?
I’m not someone who avoids things. I tend to be the jump in with both feet after careful consideration type.
6. By what age should you know what you want to do with your life?
Twenty. Any younger than that is impractical. Decisions made in one’s teen years very rarely translate into adulthood.
Bonus: Do you think you’ve experienced true intimacy in a relationship?
Intimacy requires both partners to share all with each other. I have found that, generally speaking, one partner loves more than the other and one partner shares more than the other. It seems that one or the other always holds something back, no matter how small – a piece of their heart because of the crushing heart break years back … the painful story because that part of their history is simply too difficult to talk about … something. It is possible to be intimate with someone while not having complete intimacy with them.
