It's All a Matter of Perspective

"My thoughts and prayers go out to my Babushka. I support her and adore her in whatever decision she needs to make."

At one time or another all of us have had one of those tough, soul-searching discussions where your faith, your morality, your values and your eternal damnation inevitably come into question. We all know what that leads to - introspection, second-guessing and general confusion.

Babushka just had one of those discussions. I could hear the weight of it in her voice. Being strong, supportive and understanding in a time of need - that is what any good man strives to do. That is what I strive for. That is what Babushka deserves and gets from me....until the topic triggers my own old tapes of fear and insecurity.

What could possibly trigger such a dramatic turn of events - sex of course. Sex is that paradox of beauty and beast; pain and pleasure. No other force can bring so much joy yet cause so much destruction........It's All a Matter of Perspective.

Babushka and I have felt that joy, that passion, that closeness and intimacy through sex that I never knew existed in real life. The type of connection many strive for but never reach. Yet this simple act can be a cause for celebration or a reason for concern........It's All a Matter of Perspective.

Perspectives of Sex are as varied as every snowflake in the frozen tundra. One persons sin is anothers' salvation.......It's All a Matter of Perspective.

What exactly is healthy sexuality anyway:
  • When is it appropriate?
  • When is it inappropriate?
  • What is allowed?
  • What is not allowed?
  • What is moral?
  • What is immoral?
What is the "Right" answer?

Is there a "Right" answer?

Perhaps there is no "Right" answer!

It all depends on who you ask........It's All a Matter of Perspective

Everything happens for a reason................................What is meant to be will be.
