|The 'My Sexuality' Poll
||[Jan. 3rd, 2007|07:42 pm]
Well, here is the poll at last, and it's huge! You don't have to, of course, but I'd recommend reading (or re-reading, if you need the reminder) the following 100 Days of Love and Hate posts, Human Sexuality, My Penis, Needing Intimacy. For other posts that may influence your answers look here.
Naturally, the My Sexuality post is required reading for this quiz.
I'm trying to accurately reflect myself and the sorts of liasions I've had over the years, which means a poll simply listing sexual situations and asking if someone wanted to do me was never going to be an option.
I'm fine with intimacy at all sorts of levels with various different people. What feels right or comfortable varies from person to person, and changes over time. There are folks where I've had a more teacherly role, where the idea of things being done for me was never an option. There have been people where they wanted more but what I needed was less about sex than it was about needing to be close. I'm fine with casual nudity as well, though it takes me a while to stop automatically averting my eyes. So the concept of cuddling naked in bed, with no sex expected or needed, had to fit in there too.
So the poll tries to progress from just subjects to talk about, to levels of intimacy that are non-sexual like handshakes, building to the sexual, then on to actual sex questions. From there I'll probably also throw in a few things that can be incredibly caring/intimate/sensual, but not necessarily sexual, like showering together or massage.
A special thank you to my helpers in getting the poll together. You guys rock!
If, after the poll, you'd like to talk about any/all of this, just comment to that effect. Any other thoughts, comment as well. All comments will be screened.
As usual, I will only unscreen comments that finish with the word 'Yes'.( Not Safe for Work!Collapse )
