I'm psyched on this theory ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bgd3m-x46JU ) that compares sex to a musical jam session, in that good sex is a collaboration where participants are invested in each others' enjoyment, and how to proceed together is determined by the cues and feedback that's happening during the experience. I think this applies relationships in general; I'm not psyched about prescriptive gender roles or following old scripts of what things guys and girls should do in dates/relationships. Let's instead figure out our expectations of each other together.
I love spaces where seemingly contradictory things overlap: Childlike whimsy and old-man cantankerousness; high-concept lowbrow food; mixing the sacred and profane; being simultaneously rugged and foppish; using humor to explain and process extremely serious things.
The struggle towards social, racial, and economic justice is a big part of my life, so feminist and radical politics are things I'm really into.
