I’ve decided to switch things up and jump in on the last day of Brigit Delaney‘s monthly Erotic Journal Challenge for March. The topic this month was CURIOUS.
Prompt for March = Curious
What are you curious about in regards to sexuality or eroticism?
I’ve always been a curious person, and I hope I continue to be, even as my lifespan continues to be measured in decades.
To me, there’s nothing more mentally titillating than seeking out the unfamiliar and cautiously exploring the unknown. (Note the use of the word cautiously in that last sentence.) This mindset has served me well, despite the old adage, ‘Curiosity killed the cat’.
Not only do I not find curiosity deadly, it has actually served me well in many areas of my life—particularly in regards to work, continued education, communication, and even parenting. However, I can’t think of a more alluring place to exercise one’s curiosity than in the arena of sexuality and eroticism.
There’s just so much to explore and discover when it comes to human sexually that I’d be lying if I said I could narrow it down to just one or two things that I’m most curious about. In general, I’d say I’m most curious about the things that turn other people on.
I mean, I can’t think of a better endorsement to investigate a specific kink or sex act than to hear someone talk about the ways in which a specific aspect of sexuality is arousing to them.
Being as I’m a consummate voyeur—which, I think, has a strong element of curiosity built-in to it—I’ve always been intrigued by the way others enjoy sex. That is to say, I enjoy amateur porn, podcasts, blogs and forum posts that go into details about specific kinks or entail people sharing aspects about their sex lives.
In any case, I find my curiosity also has a big impact on my open-mindedness. The more I learn about different kinds of kinks, particularly those that aren’t necessarily my cup of tea, the less judgmental I tend to be when I encounter real-life kinksters whose proclivities differ from mine. So, I hope I continue to be curious about all sorts of kink and sexuality…as long as it’s legal and consensual.
