1. SHAME & CURSES! RELEASE MY SEX WORDS!

If You Lisen Closely by Midori 2009

There’s something really sad and wrong about the common insult and anger words. I’m not saying don’t deride another or scream curses in frustrations. As if I’m some saint! Hardly! I want some seriously cutting slams and hateful retorts when a truck cuts me off on the I-5, or a loser makes some creepy sexist comment at me.

What I’m pondering is this… Why should expletives, hate words, slights and put-downs be terms for healthy sex and well-loved body parts?

Think about it. It’s weird that a person who desperately wants any contact with women’s vulva would insult another as a ‘pussy’. When they’re muff diving they’re in awe of that grand pussy, yet the very next day they’ll still use that term pejoratively. The intention behind the most common use of “cunt” is hardly celebratory. It’s an injustice to all the amazing cunts - the source of so much life, pleasure, and joy.

The same goes for “asshole”. Anal sex is beloved by so many! (I suppose an “ass” could mean a frustratingly slow plodding equine beast.) If a person loves cock, whether theirs or that of others, why use “Dick” as a slur? If you love to give or get cocksucking, then calling someone a cocksucker might reveal some serious ambivalence on your part.

(Maybe we should change that to “You Chaney” or “You’re such a Nixon!” Ok, I’ll be bipartisan, “He’s such a Lyndon B!”)

And then there are the words “jerk”, “jerkoff” and “wanker” and their cousins. Hey, that’s the glorious practice of masturbation that you’re equating to a lowlife loser! We’ve done so much to reduce shame and encourage healthy sex lives, especially around masturbation, that it’s counterproductive and regressive to keep these words yoked down with hateful negativity. It would be so nice if we took a moment and thought about the insults we use and what it may imply. We’re effectively challenging the harmful use of phrases such as “That so gay”, it would be nice if we could de-stigmatize healthy pleasure words. Let’s stop dishonoring words of consensual joy, and the wondrous human body, by equating it to rude and mean people!

It doesn’t feel that sex-positive to carry on using body and sex words like that.

If you like to fuck / screw / shag / bonk / intercourse / have coitus / hump / make the beast with many backs, then calling someone a fucker really ought to be a happy invitation, no?

The next time you hear all these words, think about this just a teensy bit. I bet it’ll seem stranger and stranger.

Yeah, I know. I’m weird. But you knew that.

With love and lunacy,

Midori
