I think fireflies might be onto something.
Having just gotten my daily requirement of Starbuck’s venti coffee as I’m driving to work, two fire flies land on my windshield. It immediately caught my attention. I almost had an accident; I was mesmerized. Charcoal black bodies with bright orange around their heads. But what struck me was that as they were actively mating with their tails in twined … each of their heads were pointing in the opposite direction. Each looked around the world, never seeing its partner and simply enjoying the process of mating.
As I pulled into the parking lot, I shut off the engine to my mini-van and just sat with my coffee, watching. It was such an innocent, natural occurrence. It might have lasted 3 minutes. I just watched, thinking how simple their life is.
How many people in the world have had sex without necessarily wanting to face their partner? No conversation needed, no eye contact necessary, simply in deep thought, fantasizing, enjoying the sensations.

Me… I think I’m happily married so the thought has never really occurred to me,
but for those who yearn for pleasure without obligation… spread your wings, fly away and go meet a firefly.
