I have never written a blog before but as part of my character research in preparation to portray a "sex blogger" I should know what it's about. So this is not a blog about my own personal experiences with sex with strangers, but rather about the idea that all sex is sex with a stranger. Let me explain.
While reading this play I was forced to ask myself how well do we really know anyway in a world where everyone wears a mask, our friends, family and spouses included. We are often most attracted to people who simply mirror our own body language, beliefs and opinions. And we are least attracted to those whose ideas and tastes don't match our own. It is a natural human instinct for us to attempt to mirror those whom we wish to attract and seduce and thus we wear our masks. We know instinctively that people are more susceptible and attracted to our ideas when we seem to be a lot more alike than we probably are. This is why you often times hear people who have divorced even after more than a decade of marriage, say things like "I didn't know him/her at all." This is why sex with strangers is often the best kind of sex, because our partner is wearing the perfect mask: The one that is a reflection of ourselves.
I look forward to hearing your well thought out responses to this idea. After all, good conversation is best when it's constructive!
