Come Find Yourself

In the old days, men were men and women were women. Men were assertive, driven, and protective. Women were radiant, nurturing, and trusting.

Then -- for good reason -- women rose above the trappings of their limited roles. Women cultivated more masculine qualities. They wore less make-up, dressed for success, and learned to move through the world with direction and purpose.

Men responded by exploring their feminine qualities. Success wasn't everything. Men took pleasure in longer hair, colorful clothing, and shameless sensuality. They learned to relax -- to enjoy nature, dancing, and the power of a skilled massage.

Women and men grew by recognizing that we have the same basic drives, desires, and vulnerabilities. Relationships grew by acknowledging our mutual need for respect, empathy, and trust. We seemed well on our way toward authentic intimacy.

But look at today.

Independent women complain of wussy men. Where is the strong man who can accept a woman's power and still have a spine of his own? Where is the self-aware man who has enough dangerous passion to ravish you in bed?

And what's with these independent, yet hardened women? Where is the woman who can be successful without guarding her heart and tensing her body? Where is the woman who can surrender to the massive presence of masculine ravishment?

Nobody wants to go back to the days of narrow gender roles, but it's time to take the next step in your own sexual revolution.

When was the last time you met a man so confident in his desire for you that his dominant words drew you into a kind of purely sensual moment where the past and the future lost meaning?

When was the last time you met a man who's desire for you was so intense that there was no time for hesitation, no reason for restraint, you just had to let yourself open to his presence?

When was the last time you met a man who skillfully opened you to the penetration of pure pleasure that you had no choice but to give yourself fully to the sweetness of surrender?

I am here, and you are mine.

Come find yourself,

Even the words are sexy, GS :-)

As a woman, what I want is both. I've said before that I refuse to choose, and I stick by that now.

I want a man who can ravish me, and I also want a man who will commit to me and to us. I want excitement and the most sublime connection in the context of deep trust and commitment. And I'm never, ever going to settle for less...

eloquently put. "words drew you into a kind of purely sensual moment where the past and the future lost meaning?" - that's what I strive for in each interaction now. finding permanence in a moment, in an instant, in a conversation, in a night.
