Sex Idiot

  Sun 6th February 2011

Erica suggested we go out for a drink the other day. We met up with a friend of hers. She was an adept at that skill that attractive women have to cultivate, of defusing the male gaze. In a crowded pub we got talking to this bunch of young men from a small town about an hour away by train who had come to Lancaster for someone's birthday. "There's not a lot to do in our town apart from drugs." They said they had some mephedrone with them - the "plant food" that was made illegal a few months ago. I passed my new pal twenty pounds, we went to the loos, and snorted a line each off the toilet seat. I liked the sordidness of it.

I wasn't expecting much from an industrial fertiliser, but it produced a warm wave of relaxation and mild euphoria. Everything brightened. Indeed, so calm did it make us feel that Erica and I then did something monumentally stupid: we tapped out a couple of little lines on the table and snorted them from behind a menu. I glanced up and saw the small black dome of the panotopic CCTV camera, feeling completely unconcerned. Worst than the legal penalities would have been the social ones: I know some of the people who run the place.

The rain was electric on the pavement. I set off for the theatre to see a one woman show called Sex Idiot, which turned out to be a rather whimsical recitation of the performer's relationships. Not enough sex, I thought, but that might have been the mood I was in. In bed, I texted Denise, my beautiful, curvy, redhead friend. The last shimmers of the drug in my system, it soon turned frisky. Everything felt bright and clear.

Blimey, Valentine’s is working its magic on you, isn’t it!

Thanks! Wish I’d started objectifying women years ago.

For some reason (*cough cough*) this made me think of you:

That’s quite good. She’s quite right about the chemically addictive nature of sex and physical closeness. I think romantic love is a cultural construct. I’d rather have something functional, that works and is mutually enjoyable, for as long as it continues to be so. I don’t want to get to the point where I’m getting texts saying “Have you remembered the bread?” Or “Where are you?”

“Working around a man’s fear and insecurity is big part of what you’ll be doing as a wife” is quite a depressing thing to be advising women in 2011. Come on Tracy, it’s not 1960s Ireland.

M / 58 / Bristol, "the most beautiful, interesting and distinguished city in England" -- John Betjeman [1961, source eludes me].

"Looby is a left-wing intellectual who is obsessed with a) women's clothes and b) tits." -- Joy of Bex.

WLTM literate woman, 40-65. Must have nice tits, a PhD, and an mdma factory in the shed, although the first on its own will do in the short term.

There are plenty of bastards who drink moderately. Of course, I don't consider them to be people. They are not our comrades.
Sergei Korovin, quoted in Pavel Krusanov, The Blue Book of the Alcoholic

I am here to change my life. I am here to force myself to change my life.

The more democratised art becomes, the more we recognise in it our own mediocrity.
James Meek

Tell me, why is it that even when we are enjoying music, for instance, or a beautiful evening, or a conversation in agreeable company, it all seems no more than a hint of some infinite felicity existing apart somewhere, rather than actual happiness – such, I mean, as we ourselves can really possess?
Turgenev, Fathers and Sons

I hate the iPod; I hate the idea that music is such a personal thing that you can just stick some earplugs in your ears and have an experience with music. Music is a social phenomenon.
Jeremy Wagner

La vie poetique has its pleasures, and readings--ideally a long way from home--are one of them. I can pretend to be George Szirtes.
George Szirtes

Using words well is a social virtue. Use 'fortuitous' once more to mean 'fortunate' and you move an English word another step towards the dustbin. If your mistake took hold, no-one who valued clarity would be able to use the word again.
John Whale

One good thing about being a Marxist is that you don't have to pretend to like work.
Terry Eagleton, What Is A Novel?, Lancaster University, 1 Feb 2010

The working man is a fucking loser.
