We’re tackling the complete absence in our society of an open, honest, healthy, and truthful conversation about sex in the real world. Our mission is to socialize sex and to make real world sex socially acceptable, in order to make it easier for people to talk about sex in public and with each other, to make better connections and get to better sexual relationships. Porn is purely masturbatory material. As one young member put it, ‘Watching porn makes me want to jerk off. Watching your videos makes me want to have sex.’

You don’t know anyone at the party, so you don’t want to go. You don’t like cottage cheese, so you haven’t eaten it in years. This is your choice, of course, but don’t kid yourself: it’s also the flinch.
Your personality is not set in stone. You may think a morning coffee is the most enjoyable thing in the world, but it’s really just a habit. Thirty days without it, and you would be fine. You think you have a soul mate, but in fact you could have had any number of spouses. You would have evolved differently, but been just as happy.

You can change what you want about yourself at any time. You see yourself as someone who can’t write or play an instrument, who gives in to temptation or makes bad decisions, but that’s really not you. It’s not ingrained. It’s not your personality. Your personality is something else, something deeper than just preferences, and these details on the surface, you can change anytime you like.

If it is useful to do so, you must abandon your identity and start again. Sometimes, it’s the only way.

Set fire to your old self. It’s not needed here. It’s too busy shopping, gossiping about others, and watching days go by and asking why you haven’t gotten as far as you’d like. This old self will die and be forgotten by all but family, and replaced by someone who makes a difference.

Your new self is not like that. Your new self is the Great Chicago Fire—overwhelming, overpowering, and destroying everything that isn’t necessary.

Changing the way we talk is not political correctness run amok. It reflects an admirable willingness to acknowledge others who once were barely visible to the dominant culture, and to recognize that something that may seem innocent to you may be painful to others.

Feelings of envy, ill will, prejudice, and resentment are nasty little emotions that can befall you as a poet when you refuse to respond to what arouses your own imagination and focus your mind there, and not begrudge or mock what arouses someone else’s imagination. When you compare the success of others to yourself, you risk fostering an imagination of despair.

I read this exactly two seconds after experiencing such a feeling of bitterness-from-comparison.

[Note: When J. Elliot refers to her being classed as one of ‘your people’ in relation to black people of color, it’s based on her reputation of being an outspoken, anti-racism ally].
