Desire vs Protection is the dilemma of the century (in my opinion).

It has evolved conscientiously and unconscientiously, in the mind of most people, since the early stage of the sexual revolution, also known as sexual liberation, back in the 1960s.

The movement started in the US, then rapidly spread out to the rest of the world. More especially in the Northern European countries, even in France, where the university students of May 68 shouted in the streets "Make love not war" while demanding a right of visit to the opposite sex in the rooms of university residences, which was forbidden back then. They obtained it and pushed the sexual exploration and demand even further...

Sexual activities became more opened, accepted, normalized, expressed, acted, and experienced, liberating both the body and the mind, especially from the sexual restrictions, cultures, and traditions in place and firmly established pre-liberation.

Then, gradually evolving through the 70s, 80s, and 90s, sex rapidly became a game, a business, even a competition. Pornography became a huge business. The woman's body was not seen, nor respected the same way. Everything became sexualized, from books to movies to radio shows to music and even TV shows and entertainments.

Nowadays, 60 years later, sex is perceived in many different ways. More opened for some, engaged in more libertine attitudes and behaviors than ever before (on both sides, not only men). And yet, more closed and restricted, even unhealthy to a certain extent, for others denouncing and accusing the excess and abuse and violence sex may have led to.

And, in between, due to all the display of images and videos generating preconceived ideas, competition, pressure, and stereotypes, you have more and more people, especially late teenagers and young adults, who are in limbo, having no more or very awkward relationships, as they do not know what to do or how to do it anymore, and don't even know how to talk to each other and express their feelings and emotions.

A weird combination of Desire and Protection on both extremes, where parity, respect, communication, and understanding could be the medium to satisfying each camp.

Take good care of yourself and your loved ones, partner, wife, husband and kids, and family, and stay safe.
