A few weeks ago I received, via the LibraryThing Early Review program, a review copy of the English translation of the book Dare... to Try Bisexuality. Here is my review:

I was hoping for better and more. This book is, at best, a silly piece of popcorn. At worst, it tries to glamorize the worst stereotypes of bisexual people and the practice of bisexuality: that it is all about having multiway causal swinger orgies, that bisexuals will hit on anyone (even you!) they find attractive, and the only reason why someone isn't having bisexual sex is because they just haven't tried it yet.

For people who already understand their own bisexuality, or the bisexuality of someone close to them, this book is at best eye rollingly silly. For people who are curious, want to learn, or are struggling to understand their own bisexuality or the bisexuality of someone close to them, this book is dangerously wrong and misleading.

I woke up this morning with snippets of X-rated filks of songs and scenes from Disney's "Mary Poppins" running thru my head.

Read this only if you really mean to... )

At which point, a fuse blew in my erotic imagination.

New York Magazine just ran an interesting article, with a straightfoward concept. They gave 100 high school students a purity test, and then gave a 100 parents of high school students the same test, and told them to guess what their kids answers were.

There was, unsurprising to me, a significant gap between what the kids said they were doing, and what parents think their kids are doing...

I really have watched a lot of movies this week.

This evening, [livejournal.com profile] amythis and I watched my havnt-got-around-to-it-for-months NetFlix of Better than Chocolate.

It was cute, and sweet, and funny, and sexy.

It was worth watching. It was worth NetFlixing. It might even be worth renting.

I've listening my way thru Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, chapter 22 The Unexpected Task and chapter 23 Yule Ball. The agony of watching a pair of ignernt 14yo boys navigate the minefield of the battle of the sexes is... interesting.

I begin to wonder if there is anyone in the books possessed of a complete set of brains. Maybe Dumbledor, but his approach is annoyingly oblique.

At least it's not as bad as the Wheel of Time series got, where if any two main characters would have ever actually sat down together and had an honest conversation, the entire annoying artiface of tension would have come crashing down.

Bi/Slightly Gay
You scored -1 (-52 being completely gay, 0 being bisexual, and 52 being completely straight)
For the most part, you are bisexual. You have a slight preference for the same gender, but either gender would suit you. If you are sexually inexperienced, it is possible that this will change after you do some experimenting.

My test tracked 1 variable How you compared to other people your age and gender:

If I was a decade younger, I would have just stayed up this morning, and gone straight to Pride. But instead, I slept `till 1pm, and made it to the park at 3, where I met up with [livejournal.com profile] omahas, [livejournal.com profile] elfs, Kouryou-chan & Yamaarashi-chan.

Despite missing the parade, and even with the streams of people leaving as I was walking in, it was still a full crowd of interestingly dressed and appearing people.

It was free of MoveOn morons with bullhorns (the people who pissed me off to no-end at Pride a couple of years ago), and I was willing to forgive the Bubble Man his anti-new-housing and his anti-computer-game rants because he was so good at entertaining a crowd of enthusiastically blissed kids with his ersatz bubble makers.

Two hours was just about the right amount of time to spend there.

I met up later with [livejournal.com profile] tygereclipse, and she introduced me to a fun greasy spoon diner on Aurora that is known for good food and take-no-shit staff.
