I’m in the midst of researching for a novel I want to write sometime this year. It’s been bugging me for the past year and a half. I’ve been watching and taking notes on documentaries about love, sexuality, marriage, and divorce.
This documentary is a very solid one. It’s a quick trip through the history of mankind’s relationship with sex and love. Have you ever wondered where the concept of “hot blondes” comes from? Have you ever wondered which cereal was invented to deter masturbation? You’ll want to watch this.
It’s crazy how sex was once out in the open and then became a shameful act. Some dude decided this biological urge was wrong. And then everyone had to follow that dude’s rules for hundreds of years. That sentiment lingers today.
Cultural inertia is a powerful force.
