from Chapter 3, LOVE VS. SEX
Being in love is without any doubt a beautiful thing. It makes you extremely happy, endorphins run wild, you want to hug the whole world and that’s a great emotional mind frame to be in. It’s one of those emotions that give you an incredible high. If that feeling is reciprocated, it’s even better.
If the physical attraction is as strong as the emotional and you can melt the two into one, sex can be truly magical but even in very loving relationships sex eventually seems to become an issue. The main reason for that is the shift of emotions. That feeling of being in love gradually turns into “just” love. Often, once that first high is gone, people start to take in the environment more, things that didn’t seem to matter beforehand, while you were in that “in love” mind frame. You’ll also start to see the person you’re with in a more realistic way (recognizing their flaws, for instance.) In that state, you find out if that person is a true match for you or not. I’m talking about the personality as well as sex. That’s the time when people often start to take the other person for granted (since you’re used to having them in your life), and things get a bit more complicated. Sexually you’ve tried it all, and it becomes a bit more of a mundane routine, and eventually, a certain level of boredom will set in.
By then, it is crucial to relight that spark, otherwise your relationship will become a very mediocre affair. Everything that made it something special once will go down the drain. Obviously there’s much more to a relationship than sex, but make no mistake, it is the one thing that separates your romantic relationship from just being platonic friends. Many people with more life experience will tell you that this is just part of the process, that things change, and for that reason, it’s important to be best friends, first and foremost. While that is important, it is a big mistake to base your relationship only on that. In many ways, it doesn’t make any sense either. Why would you want to give up on that unique bond, solidified in a mind-blowing sexual connection and exchange it for being just friends and the occasional sex (because as a couple you’re obligated to do so)?
Yes, there are immense challenges to keep a love affair going. Once you’re used to each other, many distractions will come your way. On top of that, another big issue will surface: Humans are not genetically equipped for monogamy in the first place. Therefore, if your love life is not exciting anymore, temptations will definitely become a growing issue. For some, that might take a while, sometimes years, but eventually it’s gonna happen. I’m not suggesting that monogamy isn’t possible, but it is a choice, rather than something we’re naturally programmed to be. So how do you prevent that from happening?
If I gave you a choice to pick between a mediocre relationship and one that is truly unique, where you both stand in opposite corners of a room, packed with people, and you feel your lover looking at you from afar with eyes filled with desire, anxiously waiting for the moment to finally rip your clothes off – which one would you pick?
If the two of you are a real match personality-wise and the love is strong on both sides, you can have that. The key is the kind of sex you’re having. People don’t drift apart or cheat as easily when they’re completely sexually satisfied. I’m talking about the out-of-this world kind of sex, where the two of you are so connected that nothing else matters. This book will give you a lot insight in how to reach that.
The lack of good sex is the main reason – by far – why relationships fall apart. I’ll elaborate on that in a later chapter much more in depth.
Who is L.G. Erikson?
"L.G. Erikson was born on a warm, beautiful day in the spring of......." - hold on, you can't tell them that!
Okay, let's continue: "She.... He grew up with one brother, mother and father in....." - never mind, can't tell them that, either.
"He.... She had the opportunity to experience a lot of different cultures. From early childhood on, she.... he was very outspoken and curious about the world and the people in it. That continued while growing up. He.... she formed many friendships with people from all kinds of backgrounds, and learned a lot about.... well.... a lot. In time, it became clear to her.... him, that his ability to think outside the box needed to be shared with the world, so he started writing down his observations. Finally, he.... she realized the time had come to write the first book: The Uncensored Truth: Let's Talk About Sex." - Done. The End.
Wait....What?? Isn't this the section where you're supposed to tell your readers more about you personally? You're just gonna leave them in the dark?
Yes! That's exactly what I want!
See, my gender, race, origin, age or real name are completely irrelevant for the context of my book. How would revealing that information help me to open their minds?? If anything, it would tempt them to draw the wrong conclusions if they knew all this stuff about me. Besides, there is a lot more to come - yes, there will be more books - and I want them to keep reading without prejudice.
But then again, who knows.... Maybe someday in the future I will reveal my identity....when the time is right.
