Can Your Dildo Make You Psychic?

intuition.” D.H. Lawrence

Yesterday morning, I felt sexually satisfied.  Not that I’d had some amazing one-night stand, or an orgy in a luxury hotel…no, this was the glow that comes from solo-sexual time when it is put to good use.  Anyway, I was rushing to an early appointment, and was just on my way out of the door, when my intuition stopped me.  It said, Go back and get a pen.

A pen? I replied.

Yup.

Well, over the years I’ve learned that I mustn’t ignore the intuitive thoughts that come from nowhere and feel like they’ve been suddenly dropped into my head, so I went back, got myself a pen, and rushed out again.

Later, on my way home, I entered the subway station and was stopped by a young woman who seemed worried and breathless.  She was trying to ask me for something, but I couldn’t understand — I’m guessing she was deaf or had difficulties with her speech.  She seemed to be saying, “Water?” but when I spoke the word back to her, she shook her head.  She was sweet with me, but clearly upset.  I wanted to help, so I reached for my pen.

“A quarter?” she wrote, on her hand.

I suddenly realized that she needed the money for a ticket.  When I gave her the coin, I swear, I’ve never seen anyone look more relieved.  She thanked me, over and over, as she raced towards the ticket machines.

I tell you this story, because I’ve so often had these kinds of intuition since I embraced my sexual self — and of course, you don’t need a dazzling relationship that changes your world in order to do just that.  If receiving a hug from a friend can make you feel loved and better, then so can your solo-sexual life.  And that’s not all.  Psychologists like Jung (whose theories contributed to the Myers Briggs personality test) suggested that whatever we repress becomes deep, powerful unconscious material.   So as our society pushes us to suppress our sexual longings, calling them “crude” or “dirty”, such feelings are pushed down into the deep, dark unconscious, where intuition and creativity often find their roots.  In other words, when you release yourself sexually, without shame, you also tap the creative parts of yourself.

For me, that “creative part” is often intuition.  And my intuition helps both myself and others.

So while I’m not saying that your dildo* can make you psychic, I am suggesting that it can make you you. And when you’re sexually you, deeply and entirely, whole parts of you can bloom.

*Of course, you can substitute “dildo” with whatever tools, toys and techniques make you sexually aglow.  A butt plug, a vibrator, a fucking machine, a partner wielding a whip, a hot erotic movie…  It’s all about whatever feels pleasurable and freeing for you.
