A Bit More Detail

Assorted Personal Notations, Essays, and Other Jottings


The whole concept of “eye candy” is something quite new to me. Until very recently, I didn’t bother looking at people, of either gender, at all. I don’t know why: perhaps it was because I didn’t imagine having any kind of a sex life myself, so why look at the people I passed by on the street or in university halls or wherever?

This has changed. Firstly, because I came out (first to myself, then others) and realized that I may as well have a sex life, even if only by imagining and looking like everyone else.

Secondly, because I happened to come out to myself at a time when winter ended, spring began, and people began wearing lighter clothes, showing more flesh …

I notice individuals of both sexes, though I think the ratio is biased more towards guys than girls. Different places, too, which suggests interesting things. Didn’t Dan Savage ID bisexuals as people with a fetish? In a very odd kind of way, he might be right.

It’s raining now, which is good to ward off any possibility of drought. My sinuses are itching, but the partially-completed treatment must have done something, else I’ll look into acupuncture. I think I know how to tell my parents, but I’m still wary. I’m thinking of travelling far and wide, which is cool; I hate to say “personal growth,” but that’s what I’ll be doing.

So. Until later!
