Incorporating ART into Our Living Spaces

So, you have finally got your dream house or apartment. All the fixtures and fittings have been impressively installed, and you have even bought the right decorative items to be positioned tastefully in your new home along with the furniture.

SEX IS ON MY MIND: AN HONEST DIALOGUE

YES, SEX IS ON MY MIND. Quite a lot lately, to be honest. Yes, seriously. It's all because of the"disturbing" and "interesting" articles I have been reading online. The "disturbing" reveals a rather "damaging" data on how porn is affecting the relationships between men and women, and how men's sexuality are warped by internet porn. The "interesting" articles offer insights and even possible solutions ...

THE WAY WITH WORDS

Words How they injure and maim The depth of each cut Slices through every vein Of our throbbing hearts Inflicting pains Without wounds A Bloodless massacre Surmounts All our scars Whence do they Reap such powers? Do hate and anger prey On innocent flowers Before they could bloom? Without warning They beguile and dazzle The unsuspecting minds Provoking the rise and fall Of raptured emotions Weaving beauty into every line Embedding soft caresses Into every whispered verb Reigning ...

Into the “Pleasure Domes” of Bangkok

The NST RED published my article today on this subject matter. However, the article that appeared in the newspaper was heavily censored.  IT WAS A HORRID HACK JOB, TO BE EXACT.
