I find sad to be the wrong word to use here because the only real sad component is the lack of realization the act is the issue rather than the lack of it. Intimacy, true intimacy, is something not even married couple all actually end up enjoying, so a random dude in the internet who found a bunch of weirdos to be weird with is just normal and, quite honestly, fine. Anna Karenina has far more profound things to say about the inherent failure in trying to force the ideal into our lives, but the gist of it all is that not accepting one's situation is what causes others to reject us in a basic level because what we seek and how we present ourselves due to it is false.>>91236155
Strange in what context? It's a perfectly logical reaction to a perfectly logical situation in life. Uncommon, in terms of the general population? Sure, but strange? I don't believe so.>>91236186
Plenty, I think I can safely say I am the only person in the thread that actively uses all the non-porn (as in, interded purpose rather than content) in a regular fashion rather than a handful. What are you trying to ask?>>91236283
It's not ideal, nor is it the best solution, but hey, personally, I find it harmless, in addition to the fact that emotional closeness, for better or for worse, doesn't actually know any real bounds beyond what we construct as a soceity to prevent possible abuses or false starts of it.
