The Velveteen Sophia

I know what it feels like to be an old stuffed playtoy that can no longer service its owner. Or maybe I was dreaming.

You are my Princess, and my best friend in the world!

"He may even be content to display his dependent females to his group without bothering to copulate with them."

Been reading about sex, Super-sex, and Status-sex.
Very interesting!

Sophia said...

Jim,

Thanks, Love. You make an old toy feel like new. :)

If you've ever wondered, there's a big piece of my heart that is labeled "Jim".

Sophia said...

Siegfried,

What group are they talking about?

You'll have to tell me all about it.

Sophia said...

Siegfried,

Are you reading _The Human Zoo_ by Desmond Morris?

Mi Corazon es Su Corazon!

Sophia,
Group here can mean anything from the World, if he is a World-class teacher or leader, rock-star, or athlete, country if he is a ruler, prince or president, community if he is a struggling cult leader, or company if he is into occupational sex. Etc, etc, etc.

And yes, finally I am totally and sexually enlightened.

"The Velveteen Sophia"

That is really cute, and a great analogy. It might even be truer than you think. Let us try to be real, right now.

Siegfried said...

"Once a pair-bond has been successfully formed, sexual activities still function to maintain and reinforce the bond...they usually become less intensive than those of the pair-forming stage, because the pair-forming function is no longer operating."
-- D. Morris

Jim,

Nuestros corazones son uno!

(Luckily I remember a bit from my years of Spanish education.)

Sophia said...

Siegfried,

What does it mean to be sexually enlightened?

Sophia said...

Mossy,

I'd feel compelled to ask you what is real!

Sophia said...

Siegfried,

From the quote you've presented of Mr. Morris's, I'm guessing he's talking about sex getting less exciting when with the same partner for a long period of time.

Mossy said...

What is real?

Feeling my feet on the floor and knowing that I am doing it.

At least this is a real experience. I think that we have a way to go before we can experience anything real.

Sophia,
The Big O.

Siegfried said...

Well, I mean I found out what SEX is all about.

Siegfried said...

Yes, I guess that's how I understood it too.

Well, at least I still get sexcited.
