YouTube, I love you.
The more you learn, the more you realize how little you know.
Lately, I have been spending a lot of time on YouTube. My fondness for this site started fairly recently when I found myself incapable of setting up a product that I had just bought on the Internet.
The accompanying instructions were poor, printed on a minuscule piece of paper and extremely difficult to decipher. I logged into YouTube, looked up the name of my product and voila!
A jolly guy popped up on my screen and demonstrated how to set up my gizmo and make it do what it was supposed to do.
But YouTube does much more than that. It offers useful instructions about a large variety of subjects. Name it, and you will probably find it on YouTube. Once in a while, my Amazon Echo Wall Clock or Alexa refuse to do their job properly. The best way to fix the problem, and many others, is to consult Professor YouTube.
I just read that some of the most important life survival skills are not taught in school. A shame! Among them nutrition, basic money management, cooking, basic first aid, and human sexuality.
Yes, human sexuality. And this subject is very different from how babies are made. It is undeniable that sex is a very important factor of a relationship. But there is good sex and bad sex; if one of the partners finds the whole thing unsatisfying, there are good chances that this association will implode.
After all, this is specified in the Constitution… or somewhere else.
If you want to be proficient at anything you do, you first must learn about it. And if you are a tenderfoot in the carnal area, you can learn about the most common sexual practices on YouTube.
Doctor Lindsey Doe is a clinical sexologist and sex educator who hosts a series called Sexplanations. She is well-spoken and a vocal advocate of carnal knowledge and sexual health. There are no taboos in her dissertations and she tackles any subject with brio.
She is straightforward and not afraid to use some common street vocabulary. She calls a spade a spade and that is the way it should be.
Frankly, I was a little taken aback by the things she talked about. But I could have used some of her knowledge when I was a very green young man.
In my days, you became familiar with the subject through pathetic experiments or by visiting a house of good repute.
Doctor Doe (and her pioneering colleagues) are true benefactors of humanity by breaking old taboos and senseless religious proclamations.
