The UK Angle & Sex Blogging

If a week is a long time in politics, in the blogosphere, it's like, what, aeons?

It's been too long, and I hate to disappoint the few quite loyal readers that I have -- viz:(New Age Harlot; Anchored Nomad;Laura the Tooth...) Hey, we can't all attract an audience of hundreds;-)

Incidentally, I just wanted to say a big thankyou to Daniel Hoffman-Gill, whom I recently met on the blogosphere, for having linked me.

I first came across his very peculiar and interesting site when he emled me regarding a comment I made on Psycho Soccer Mum's post on racism. Actually, she had posted something written allegedly by one Andy Rooney--to which she appeared from her comments to support explicitly and whole-heartedly.

The issue, for me, is pretty much dead and buried, but it did cause some controversy, followed by soul-searching, and some elucidations, which made me arrive at one conclusion: we are all, to a large extent, prejudiced in some way or another--and it doesn't necessarily come from upbringing all the time.

Like, I hate people who abuse power to profit, and I dislike the current US administration, and I hate those people who have never gone beyond their parochial worldview by travelling, yet see fit to castigate a culture that was there before their time.

Things like that. Oh, and I hate spiders too, but it's odd that at the age of 28, I am now mustering the courage to kill them without flinching. I can even squash the small ones with my hands now, and wash my hands thoroughly with Dettol(R) afterwards:-)

But...to be serious for a second, I think what I learnt from that episode above was that there arer many "shades of grey" around. Doesn't make it right, but changing the world never was an easy task!

Daniel is a writer, actor, director.

Sitting here in a now-rainy Accra, Ghana, makes it rather difficult to see some of his shows;-) Based on his commentary and people's comments, they sounded, as the Brits say, like a blast.

I'm rather perplexed, however, by the number of women asking for boobies and porn. I mean, WTF? Talk about role-reversal!

I enjoy Daniel's site because of the variety. From his private life to dare-I-say-it porn, to his strong convictions on race and whatnot, his is the way to go! He's a top bloke, really.

To boot, he's British, and I do not think that I have hidden my affinity for the Brits (my secondary school education, my love for BBC Radio Four, which I listened to all the time back in Brussels on LW198; other BBC programmes, and last but not least Eastenders which is a soap that has been running since 1985) , what with their legendary fair play and all.

I have always felt and believed that if it is true that the US rules the world, the Brits certainly rule the waves--both sea and air!

watch this space for more profiles...

On another note, I'm not quite sure where to start with Sex Blogging.

Let me put it this way. I started this blog in February. That's exactly the same month my girlfriend/significant other whom I am crazy about in a bad way started sleeping with each other. Before then, my sex life was a non-event.

Despite this public admission, I cannot even begin to write about sex on my blog, or my encounters; I just don't have the guts. Instead, I derive vicarious pleasure from reading the following. Let me preface the list by saying that none of these--bar one--has linked me. But I think the laws of the blogosphere are such that by hook or by crook, you'll get noticed somehow...

someday...

somewhere.

I understand WHY ther haven't linked; I am not a sex blogger, and maybe what I write is of no interest to them. Fine. But, like Laura the Tooth, variety is truly the spice of life, hence one reason why you will find that she has linked to existentialist theory and Foucault!

Yes, you read right.

There's no surprises why she's called the "Thinking Pervert". Her moniker says it all, and she deserves all the kudos as I feel she actually puts a lot of thought into what she writes, and that, for me, is the essence of blogging--in particular about sex, cos personally, much like watching porn, it just becomes oh-so nauseauting.

Homily over. Here's the list:
The Unknown Naughty Girl--a site I like for its honesty and the interaction of Joey Madison--as she calls herself. Besides, Joey almost always seems to be in a good mood, and that definitely always makes my day!;-)

Virgin Slut, who is also quite erudite,and who equally can interact with her readers. Her posts are interesting in the sense that she actually provokes some serious food for thought and gives readers respect by asking for their opinion

...and many more, which will be continued.

Hunger is taking the better side of me, so I will stop here and have my late lunch.

Thanks for all your wisdom; I shall be expecting comments!!:-)

I was never big on humility.

I don't like spiders either. I also have recently begun to kill them myself (if I'm all alone and have to, otherwise I try to get someone else to, somthing about the SQUISH concept that freaks me out).
