To me this was the most important conversation I had with my kids when they were teens. I wasn't able to keep them from seeing it, and frankly, I didn't really want to. They're post-millennial, so they were online early. Kids believe what they see and hear. I didn't want them to think porn sex was how most of us experienced sex. It is entertainment with actors made for a specific audience. This was just as important for my boy to understand as my girl. I have nothing against porn. I'm an avid consumer of porn, but as with all my purchases, I spend wisely.

I enjoy your reflections. It's tough to come out in any way as you get older. It always feels like you've been deceptive or unfair, but things change. You change. Desires and goals and situations change for everyone as we age, right? My god, coasting on everything I was at 20 until I'm 80 would not be living. All we can do is be honest in the moment.

Chasing the return always compromises the craft. A lucky few of us thrive on writing what is popular. Most of us sacrifice the journey for the destination. And then there are the disillusioned and the liberated who walk a path with no destination in sight. This is where joy lives.
