Musical Stylings and Advice for Young Boys and Girls on Sex and Intimacy: "Take Time To Know Her" by Percy Sledge

I can only speak for myself. Perhaps, I can speak for some men. I will not dare to offer up insight into these matters of lovemaking, sex, rutting, the many pleasures of the flesh, and intimacy as I imagine women understand, perceive, and experience them.

Such matters are for the comment section. I will read and learn.

When prompted, Brother Daryl, our resident DJ, also offers up musical suggestions about those songs that improve intimacy and make a man better at taking his (lady) friends and partners to Space Mountain. He is a bit of a homophobe. Real talk. I do think his advice crosses lines of sexual orientation and desire. Please do not tell him I said that. He is a big dude at about 400 lbs, and would likely beat me something awful if he learned about my generalizing from his claims.

Tropic of Cancer tells us that an aroused penis is like a lead pipe with wings. I have preferred the analogy that a man in his teens and early twenties has a deadly sharp katana blade over which he has partial control. As he gets older, said young lingam warrior learns more mastery and control. At said moment, he should be a more deadly warrior. He may not be able to cut as often. But, he can cut with more precision, style, and effect.

Then again, I am in my late thirties and trying to make sense of my slowly diminishing abilities--self-deprecating humor does have its place: Do insert laugh, winks, and humor. Trust, I have found other ways to compensate.

I am old school in my loving it up mixtape tastes. For me, Sade tells your lady it is going down. R. Kelly or D'Angelo signals it is on like Donkey Kong. Al Green is making baby music. What of Daryl's suggestion that all men should listen to Percy Sledge before a romantic interlude, and moreover, that said song should be essential listening (and training) for young men who are developing in their erotic lives as journeymen lovers and/or Lotharios?

Ironically many people don't know that song was written by a Caucasian-American gent while most of the soulful music was also played by fellow Euro-Americans at either FAME or Muscle Shoals studios.

But the song is really not about having a slow hand so to speak and pleasing the ladies. It's about not being stupid and getting married to a woman who can't/won't be true. The singer's mother and preacher take one look at singer's wife and tell him to think twice before proceeding.. =)

naturally like your web-site but you need to test the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I to
find it very bothersome to inform the truth then again
I'll certainly come back again.
