Close your eyes. Imagine a melody in your head. A new melody, something that you haven’t heard before. Did you? If you are like me, you probably came up with something trivial or nothing at all. Now, click on this link and watch Vanessa Mae play Sabre Dance.
The difference between the simplistic music that we came up with and the glorious Sabre Dance is “human ingenuity”. You and me are untrained and we probably never thought about creating music. If you worked that violin for twenty years, under the supervision of an able teacher and pushed yourself to your limits, then Sabre Dance won’t be so unimaginably distant for you. Now, answer this question with utter honesty:
What would be the Sabre Dance of your sexuality? Can you even imagine it?
If you were like me, you probably can’t imagine what the Sabre Dance of your sexuality would look like. But can you at least imagine that the expression of your sexuality today is trivial compared to what is possible when you apply your ingenuity?
The ‘zero-risk’ sexual policy that we have for thousands of years has kept our sexuality from progressing the way human ingenuity progressed in every other spheres of life. In this area of life, we are all still amateur violin players, struggling without guidance, working on our skills in a haphazard manners. But we wrongly assume that we play at virtuoso levels.
It is as if we think that the best musical performance is done in our bathrooms when we sing. Whereas, the possibility of Sabre Dances of human sexuality never crosses our mind.
