Someone mentioned this, and commented, “Yes! Just what I’ve been saying, sex is NEVER just sex.”

And that’s cool. Except that it is.

For many people.

The prevailing viewpoint of “it’s not all about sex,” is valid and important. At the same time it can imply that sex-focused kinksters are doing it wrong or setting back “the movement” or whatever.

If you’re into “more than” sex, that’s cool.

If you’re not into sex at all, that’s cool.

So, let’s not do it.
