Movies, Reality, and Sex….

Life in the State of Mania

From here to EternityHow many of you, in your dreams see that sandy beach, and the waves lapping onto your body – and the body of your significant other; as you make love

NOT! In that case have you seen the picture of Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr from the movie From here to Eternity? Supposedly this is one of the top romantic movie scenes of all time. But is it reality? Could it happen to you? The odds are better that you could to win a small lottery, but by only a few percent I’m sure.

popcornMovies put in to our heads the possibility of what sex could be in our daily life, and that; at some point, you and your partner could come together and become one flesh. Wow! – I’m all a quiver now, one flesh, one soul, a magical bond for that – perfect – moment. Then after every fight with your significant other, the perfect make up sex, and the next morning all is right with the world — again. The hope is; that in our real world we could have the happy endings that is scripted in to the movies that we go to every weekend. But it doesn’t happen that way, and that is why I don’t go to the movies every weekend unless some beautiful female vampire is killing people.

Now you’re saying; “This guy is just a disgruntled possessor of life”, maybe so; but for me there is nothing better than a movie that is a comedy, and the plot is a romantic love story, how ironic is that! I would take one of those movies over a shoot’em up movie any day. I crave, need, want romance, but cannot make it work in my life. So, am I disgruntled, or just dysfunctional?

heebie-jeebiesEither way; the desire for romance in my personal life spills over my working life, affecting me in undesirable ways. It is as if I had “Sex” written, and pulsating in neon on my forehead for all to see! EGADS!!!  The fact is that I work in an environment that is mostly women, my aura enters a room before I do, and you can see it in the expression on the faces of the women, Eww, it is him …” you literally see their skin crawl with the heebie-jeebies. I have to force myself to think of kittens, and puppies, and wipe the sexual tension off my sleeves, where I wear it.

elfIt is hard working as a professional with this going on, I have been reported to HR (Human Resources) 2 times for sexual harassment, both times were dismissed because of the fact that the comment made was deemed as not sexual, but that of a person who has not entered the twentieth century. So what does that say about me? It states that; although not dangerous; I might be an old pervert.

(my head shake disgustedly)

“Damn this isn’t good!”

(muttering to myself out-loud)

(A momentary reflective pause; the screenplay continues…)

BAMBI-AND-FALINEThe movies, yes, it is the movies that are to blame for bringing me to this low point in my life, it’s probably a good thing that I didn’t like shoot’em up movies. So how do I get control over my reality of sex, hmm …? Or should I say “Sexual reality” that in real life is never as good as the movies, Bambi had it better.

If I could adopt the notion of reality vs. movie reality, then I could move on with my life; thus “Transmuting my sexual desires into personal aspirations”, Napoleon Hill would be proud! But I am still left with how to fix this? I thought that with age my primal urges would subside, a natural neutering, so to speak, but this hasn’t happened — yet.

from-here-to-eternity-end-title-stillSo I guess, I will continue on, fighting with the earthly man, until my sexual drive diminishes; which I hope I have until I am dead!!!

What??? — The Mystery of Sex Transmutation??? (Musings 1)

Life in the State of Mania

Have you heard of writer named Napoleon Hill, and the book he wrote, “Think and Grow Rich” well you haven’t, it was first published in 1937. It is one of those so-called “Self Help” books based upon his work on The Law of Success. Actually not a bad read, but for me one chapter has always left me asking questions, and that chapter is, chapter 11: The Mystery of Sex Transmutation. Then as you can guess I am not the only one to question what Napoleon was trying to say, and there are as many answers as there are questions, and my question to this chapter is:

What does my sex life; have to do with prospering in my life?

That is a pretty simply stated theory of that chapter. But that is the goal of my writings on The Mystery of Sex Transmutation, and this site, is to put things in a simple perspective. So this is where my journey will begin, and I hope when I stop writing about sex transmutation that I; and maybe some of you will have a better understanding of the question of sex, and the good life

The Ground Rules

Life in the State of Mania

Before I start with the following posts I want to lay out some ground rules. When I First started this blog I had two topics in mind, and they were;

  • My life.
  • My life, and the depression that I have labeled with.

So now as I am going to start these new postings I see the need for some pre-intervention because I am going to add one more subject to this list, and some of my email subscribers may not like what I’m going to say, and here it is;

  • Sex, and what it has to do with having a successful life.

Honestly I have a good idea about the first two topics, but the third one don’t, but I want too. So before I drop any bombs on the innocent eyes out there you may want to unsubscribe.
Next lets put out there a new definition on a old word, or slang word I’m sure, but here it is; OOPs, and here is my new definition; It is my Opinion, and my Observations, from my Perspective, on the situation… Otherwise noted as OOPs… But don’t give up the old usage just yet. So why you ask did I have to go that? Because always remember that my writings after all are OOPs’s. Well I hope those that do hang around enjoy what I am going to write.

Shades of… Gray??

Life in the State of Mania


I just finished the audio book of “50 Shades of Grey” I’m mot really sure of how many hours that took, but it was many! What all the hoopla was about the sex, is a mystery to me… Of course there was sex, but in audio time it amounted to about 30 minutes! I’m 55, and I can do better. I listened to that audio book for an estimated time of 12 hours, and to only get 30 minutes of sex! Ok, I have digressed, I guess that for the few acts of BDSM  (look that up) it was, just — well — ok. As for me, buying the second audio book — well — no….
