Making It

Making out is the most intimate sexual act, the mouth being the most vulnerable and enthralling orifice with words interspersed between lips. The Muslim Hijab is a recognition of oral hallowed ground. You might wonder why people can’t just be content with kissing, whipping their tongues into each other’s mouths with venom--like snakes. Why is there such an insistence on going all the way or at least getting to first or second base? The answer is simply that this is the state of humankind. Who's satisfied with what they have? Afterall, the agony of the romantic poet comprises the wrestling with the ineffable and unattainable—all that has yet to be whose mesmerizing hold casts a shadow over whatever is. Remember back to the dark bedrooms of adolescence where impassioned clandestine fumbling was governed by tantalizing parameters and rules. What could be better than that? Sexual intercourse, which is a little like parallel parking and requires a steering component (that many drivers fail when they first take their driving test), is not always what it’s cracked up to be. 

Read "Under the Skin" by Francis Levy, HuffPost
