They try to find out what makes each tick. What their secret desires are and bring it to the front. Jess C Scott shows that, what you write in blogs and show in your body language, can show your true self.-- Horror Author, Andy Love...I like the reality of [4:Play], and feel it must ring true with audiences, say, under 40. Im 64 and it rings true with me. America is totally twisted on the subject of sexuality, and I hope the next generations will handle that better than their predecessors. My gen. treats sex as appropriate only for:1) courtship (but abstain!),2) the first year or so of marriage (no longer!) and...most important,3) A marketing and sales device.-- email from a reader, May 2010EXCERPT:At her touch on his waist, Yins memory shot back to a time Julian and he had been on a field.
Yin was demonstrating a judo throw...Julian slapped the side of Yins waist in jest. You kicked my ass, man.Julians touch fired Yin up. A firm, solid touch. Yin wanted to jump in front of Julian and kiss him, once, smack on the lips. Julian went on humming and whistling, making some banal remark on how sunny the afternoon was.Yin got home in a partial haze.
I must be psycho, he thought. Having such thoughts about a best friend. Thinking so much about a touch. Maybe Ive grown up with not enough of them...maybe thats why I find PDA sort of stuff so annoying...Im not completely cold, am I. I accept hugs, I just dont...initiate. Maybe I should.From then on, he began to greet people with a hug.That was years ago when they were seventeen.But now, this was Maéva, not Julian.ABOUT THE AUTHOR:Jess identifies herself as an author/artist/non-conformist.
