I was just talking to neighbours over the back fence
keeping social distancing in place – of course
and it reminded me of this old blog that I wrote near the anniversary of WoodstocK.
(Which I have changed a bit.)
I was telling the neighbours how (long ago) I walked around the botanical gardens with friends, hugging trees and doing “Monty Python” silly walks.
My generation implemented many changes for the better.
When some female executive (or of some other once male dominated profession) treats me with contempt because I am old and disabled I feel like saying “If it wasn’t for me and others like me you would have no rights nor status and certainly not the job you have ” — but I haven’t said this as yet 😦
It amuses me when younger people think they are going to shock me by telling me they are gay or like to walk around naked.
Seriously I am Flower Power Generation
Here with sex education by John Cleese:
When I was growing up: as well as having no rights nor status: women were not expected to enjoy sex.
A woman was expected to stay a virgin until she was married:
A man was expected to be promiscuous:
Never understood how that worked:
When I was in high school we were discussing sex at lunch time and I said that there were double standards.
Several girls said “That is the way it is meant to be” —
What does that mean??? — (In actuality, it meant that it was a cultural norm.)
Once married the chances of a women climaxing was rather slim as (most) men of my age group are proficient at “wham bam thankyou mam!”
AND THEN CAME THE SEXUAL REVOLUTION.
Gays could stop pretending that they were heterosexual. 😀
And women could enjoy sex.
Before political correctness my first husband used to say that women who were in a bad mood were suffering from “lack of nookie”.
Embarrassed to say that I laughed but I also saw that this could be just as easily applied to men
I haven’t googled the health benefits of sex but I know there are many.
It is also great exercise and a fun way to lose weight.
Also ladies there is always B O B = Battery Operated Boyfriend: and to be politically correct there should be a B O G.– for the ladies, not the gents 😛
I have never read 50 shades – partly because I never read a “Mills and Boons” and was told that “50 Shades of Grey” is like a Mills and Boons novel but with sex:
Partly because I have “been there; done that”: who needs to read about it:
and partly because it is popular 😛
(I have never watched a soapie or a reality tv show or read a love story, as in “Mills and Boons”)
My Wiccan tradition works skyclad (naked):
When I used to go to our local nudist beach: people would be both disgusted and horrified.
I would say “Yes! If God wanted us to be naked we would have been born that way.”
On each occasion I was just given a blank look:
Seriously, who wasn’t born naked ?
I have not been to this beach in a long time:
In the days that I went there everyone was friendly, like people in a country town, but apparently, and sadly, these days, it has a few creeps with binoculars sitting on the cliffs.
Most things have changed for the better in my life time:
The problem is that there are too many humans, so unless we change our attitudes soon we will make all life extinct including ourselves.
and be kind to non human life forms
