"Being sexually self-actualized is important, and once you've taken the time to understand yourself, your motivations, and your needs, there really isn't a whole lot limiting you but your own conscience."
The article seemed shallow and frivolous to me. Magazine writers need something to write about and because Lady Gaga said it, doesn't make it so. I feel irritated by reports of 'trends" of any kind because in the end, it's an individual choice who I screw, when screw, how much I screw and the only thing that matters is how I feel about myself before, during and after. And... now that I got that off my chest, I will say that my sexual liberation has done more for my whole person liberation than any other endeavor I've embarked upon including therapy, meditation, yoga, 12 steps, etc, etc.
Korindinos quote says it all.
