Sexual Creativity and the GSP
A participant at the Graphic Sex Project wrote me to say making a graph inspired them to think of other different and creative ideas to express their sexuality. This made me so happy! Success! I really believe the Project helps you harness your creativity as a powerful way to realize a more fulfilling sex life.
Just look at the “two-lady love sesh” above: an artistic endeavor is their foreplay.
Good sex is itself a creative endeavor – and I don’t mean biologically pro-creative. Being a good lover is so much about thinking of new ways to give and receive. You are listening to your partner’s body and responding creatively with your own – such a dance of pleasure. How can you touch them in a different way than you have before? What subtle shift will cause more pleasure? What rhythm will bring your bodies in a more perfect synchronization?
It’s paying attention to now, not simply doing what you’ve always done before. It’s improvisational.
The combination of your mouth, your fingers, the heel of your hand, the pressure of an elbow, the slide of a leg, the genitalia – all are instruments in a symphony you are playing on their body, and they on yours.
So if it is creative, then it makes sense that all kinds of creativity can speak to the sexual experience, and become a tool for a deeper understanding of your desires. You create the connections in your brain. If you make art and think about sex – then when you have sex that art becomes a reference.
Haven’t you danced to a song you love and it made you feel sexy? Same thing. The Graphic Sex Project connects your creative brain to sexual brain. How else can you wake up your creative/sexual spirit?
Deepak Chopra famously said “Creativity is ultimately sexual.” Sex is clearly the inspiration for a lot of creative output, but I’m suggesting the opposite: that creativity with can inspire sex. As long as you are thinking about sex while you are being creative.
Write a poem about sex. Take arty pictures of your partner’s skin. Draw your partner. Draw your genitals. Write an erotic short story. Paint the flow of your love-making. Improvise music to your partner masturbating.
Here’s a cool idea. Alexander Esguerra and Tyler Peters make art by covering lovers bodies with paint (non-toxic) and putting them on a canvas to have sex.
Get the Magnetic Graphic Sex Kit and play with the colored squares and words. Each time you play, are making a piece of art and inspiring your next sexual encounter.
