Sex and Love Are Not New This Valentine's Day


Sex and Love Are Not New This Valentine's Day
You did not invent sex and you are not the first person to experience love and you are not the last

Sorry to disappoint you, but love is not new.  You did not invent sex and you are not the first person to experience love or to discover a certain sexual position or a specific way to please your partner.  Believe it or not, whatever you can imagine, conceive, or indulge in, you are not the first person to do this.

I had the pleasure of being on a panel at the pretigious Soho Beach House in Miami Beach.  This unique hotel is home to the creative arts, a place for artists, photographers, authors and others in the creative arts fields to meet and socialize while enjoying private events and peaceful self-reflection on the ocean in Miami Beach, Florida. 

The first panel member to introduce herself was Naomi Wilzig, a delightful ageless woman who became probably the world's largest collector of erotic art.  She had collected so many erotic paintings, scultpures, wood carvings and more that she had to continually expand her space until she opened the doors to the World Erotic Art Museum in Miami.  She explained, in her simple and jokingly serious manner, that just one sexual act is not portrayed the same way by any two artists.  Each artist interprets the same behavior in a slightly different way.  Her description made the whole audience become eager to visit her museum and explore this facet.  She also explained that she had images of the most unexpected types of sexual scenes that dated back throughout the centuries.  In her erotic art exhibits, what we might believe is a 20th or 21st century discovery, is a human behavior that has been around since the life began.  Since humans have always engaged in the sexual act to propagate the species, they have also engaged in all the different types of acts that are possible.

Give The Gift Of Love


"LOVE" is the most precious gift we can give to anyone at any time.  Far more valuable than the most expensive diamond, the most exotic vacation, the most luxurious home or the most sporty and powerful automobile.  With love as the basis, of couse, all of these gifts would probably be most welcome.  But without love as the foundation, ...
