    Just Another Day....

    I sit with my workmates in silence. The still of the flat ocean in the harbor harmonized us. When our little break is over, the talk is abrupt, and disconnected about the work and about their lives. I sit, stand and work in silence, I've learned over the the years that when I...

    I Find Intelligence Alluring In A World That Seems To Be Getting Less And Less Intelligent

    i am afraid to say that the world is progressively becoming a shallower, more ignorant and generally stupider place. It is partially because of this that when i find someone that shows some sentience, particularly in the face of what i've just mentioned, that i am drawn to them...

    Are You Looking For A Clear, Meaningful Understanding Of The Concept Of Sapiosexuality?

    Hi there, my name is Damian and I am Sapiosexual. Not to say that I do not have an orientation towards gender, or physical appearances, but to me a person's mind is of prime importance when considering partnership. There is a bit of contention over the proper meaning or use of...

    Cerebral Exchange - The Ultimate Sexual Stimulant

    There is nothing like intelligent banter and discourse laced with innuendo and suggestiveness. It targets the brain so that the body can enjoy.Indeed, sex is a very physical act, but there is no doubt that it is experienced mentally.
