make love

Be present. Make love. Make tea. Avoid small talk. Embrace conversation. Buy a plant, water it. Make your bed. Make someone else’s bed. Have a smart mouth, and quick wit. Run. Make art. Create. Swim in the ocean. Swim in the rain. Take chances. Ask questions. Make mistakes. Learn. Know your worth. Love fiercely. Forgive quickly. Let go of what doesn’t make you happy. Grow.
—  Paulo Coelho
Fate l’amore fino a perdere il respiro, con il cuore che vi batte tra i denti. Fate l’amore, unite i corpi e legate le anime, fatele vibrare insieme come corde di una chitarra, fatevi trasportare da questa musica in un infinito vortice di libertà. Non sono volgari i corpi che si amano, volgari sono i pregiudizi dell’invidia, le voci mortali dominate da una morale illogica. Quindi fate l’amore, con l’anima, il corpo, gli occhi, amatevi fin che la carne non si consuma, fin che ha un senso, e anche oltre.
—  Fate l’amore

“When sex becomes a production or performance, that is when it loses its value. Be mutual. Be loud. Be clumsy. Make noises, be quiet, and make a mess. Bite, scratch, push, pull, hold, thrust. Remove pressure from the moment. Love the moment. Embrace it. Enjoy your body; enjoy your partner’s body. Produce sweat, be natural, entice your senses, give into pleasure. Bump heads, miss when you kiss, laugh when it happens. Speak words, speak with your body, speak to their soul. Touch their skin, kiss their goosebumps and play with their hair. Scream, beg, whimper, sigh, let your toes curl, lose yourself. Chase your breath; keep the lights on, watch their eyes when they explode. Forget worrying about extra skin, sizes of parts and things that are meaningless. Save the expectations, take each second as it comes. Smear your make up, mess up your hair, rid your masculinity, and lose your ego. Detonate together, collapse together, and melt into each other.” —Corissa Marie #ArtidoteAndChill
