Hi everyone! I am a long time lurker at this site, and have read Marnia's fantastic Cupid's poisoned arrow book. I don't intend to come here to moan about being single. Because my last relationship was emotionally traumatic, it has taken me some time to begin to heal. I think I am finally coming back to "myself" after 1.5yrs of feeling I had lost my soul when it ended with my ex.
I assume you've all seen Gaile's information: but here it is in case you haven't. I thought her talk was really relevant.
Her TedX talk titled "Growing Up in a Pornified Culture | Gail Dines | TEDxNavesink"
Gail's website here:
She describes herself as part of the only anti-porn feminist group in the country.
This is so sad. And so true.
I have been reading here since about 2012, and been in a couple of relationships since that time. One was with what I feel was a sociopath, and one was just brief and probably with a relatively normal person who would never go near karezza.
This may be slightly off topic but I've been wondering about it for a while and wondered if anyone else had input.
I see how I am affected in short term and longer-term ways by orgasm and higher-heat sex. I literally get sick. It's not a fun thing to re-experience over and over to learn the lesson!
One thing I have been seriously wondering about, is how a person can tell the difference between post orgasm symptoms in a partner and intentional manipulation if the partner has a personality disorder like sociopathy?
I don't really know where to start here. Apologies if this is disorganized.
I've been aware of karezza/ post orgasm principles thanks to stumbling across this amazing website a couple of years ago. I've been in my current relationship for three years.
