The State of Things

Posted in Uncategorized by bigsleytheoaf on January 10, 2013

I use Google Reader.
In Google Reader I have a folder labeled “sexy.”
The folder labeled “sexy” draws from a number of tumblrs & blogs which serve content that I sometimes find sexually arousing.
Google Reader indicated that my sexy folder had two unseen posts – I looked at it and discovered that one of these posts is a picture of a woman with a zipper piercing being pissed on.
There are many men in the world who are looking at the very same picture, stroking their penises.
Each of those men had a mother and a father.
You are reading about this, and you have a mother and a father.
Some of those men who I referenced are reaching climax just now. They are both reaching climax when I wrote this originally and now, as you read these words, though likely the ones reaching climax during the former now are different from those reaching climax during the latter now.
There are also women masturbating to this picture.
This picture has inspired many erotic and sexual thoughts in those who looked at it.
The woman in the picture had a mother and a father.
I recognize her. She’s a rather famous kinky porn actress named Cherry Torn.
Her contribution to the world is public humiliation. She has inspired over one million orgasms – perhaps closer to a billion. A billion orgasms. My blog has been viewed thousands of times. She has inspired over a thousand times more orgasms than the number of blog views that my writing has inspired over its history.
I am afraid that I do not have anything as inspiring in me as her ability to get pissed on.
What do I do with this belief?
How can I even begin to think of my “value” except w/r/t my ability to interact with other people and somehow change them?
Such thoughts lead to suicidal urges, sometimes.
Are we all condemned to be valuable to only a few people?
We must be. It’s the nature of attention.
Perhaps the world would be a better and more friendly place if everyone were assigned an audience, and you could only pay attention to the person you were assigned to.
This pissed on woman is getting way too much attention, yeah?
Fuckin’ hell.

    You must know that Mills said that there are greater and lesser pleasures. That we all seek pleasure but the man reading Shakespeare or curing cancer is experiencing greater pleasure than the man getting infinite blowjobs or heroin rushes. Attention is boring. I know that when I go on and on about the things I care about people listen out either out of politeness or because they think that what I am saying will ultimately benefit them. This is attention. The meaning is slightly different but soldiers stand at attention because they are told to. You’re valuable to me, I would say invaluable. Immeasurable. You’re cavernous, you project N dimensions on your N-1 dimensional surface. You know we’re all animals.

      Yeah, we’re all animals.

      Yeah, but some part of me just wants lots of ATTENTION. I’ve been thinking about ways to perform, maybe. I dunno.

      I don’t even think I’d like it if this blog got a lot of attention. I have like 10 regular readers, or so, who give really awesome feedback – I’d much rather have that sort of situation than 1000 readers who bicker and misinterpret, etc.

      Attention is strange. I should think/write more about attention. Mrrrrrrrrr.

    What she is doing is visceral and appeals to the lowest common denominator, no different from the advertising you see telling you to buy calorically dense food, sexy clothing, or what have you. What you are doing requires forethought and dedication. Would you rather be remembered for thoughtful writing than for getting pissed on or inspiring orgasms? I feel like the difference of those two attentions, is one form appeals to many people who will retain the idea less. Eventually an equal or more extreme pee-woman will come along and replace her. The other attention is more informative, thought-provoking and long-lasting. Can you compromise with quality over quantity?

    I also want to say that I am inspired your intellect, and the raw honesty of your writing.

    And don’t get me wrong, I am not downplaying orgasms. Orgasms are the goddamn best but they don’t really provide any long-term physical or mental sustenance. I can’t eat an orgasm or live in one. And if I valued them over everything else, I just wouldn’t get anything done, like at all.
