Robots, do you think that who we are in our sexuality is our most "true" self? Or is it just a physical distraction?
For example: a person who is dominant in everyday life (e.g. a typical alpha man, a boss or something like that) but submissive in bed - is this person most truly dominant or submissive?
Society seems to think out sexuality is our true selves, "that's when things are reveled for what they really are". But I'm sure many of you recognize the feeling after you cum, when sex isn't on your mind and what you just did/fantasized about seems crazy.
That's a good question. Funny to think of how many dominate "alphas" are secretly little cuckbois inside the comfort of their own home. Life is hilarious like that.
It has a lot to deal with who alphas are as a person. They're used to being leaders, dominant and in charge. A lot of men who are in places of power whether its social or business power have a fetish to be dominated since it's the opposite of the norm to them
But does that mean that's who they really are?
If I got Putin to crawl on his knees in front of me, would that make him less or a macho man everywhere outside the bedroom? Is that his true self, then?
Well sexuality plays a big part in determining a person's true self, but a real test of self identity is fighting. It shows you what you are capable of and what you're willing to do, unfortunately fighting is one of the last dying forms of art. Instead you have people having "Facebook wars, or text wars" which is ridiculous in itself.
I actually thought about something very similar just a few hours ago. I'm a submissive and masochistic male, I'm also highly paraphilic. But I thought about how everything about me has changed multiple times over the course of my life, my tastes, my beliefs, my interests etc. But one thing has stayed constant throughout my life, since I first started to have sexual thoughts around the age of 8-9, which is my strong submissive sexual desires.
It's truly a core of me that hasn't changed and seems unlikely to ever change for as long as I live. There were long period after I first started to realize that my urges were abnormal around the age of 14 where I wanted to get rid of my preferences and be attracted to normal sexual relations but it never worked. Even today I still swing from episodes of hating myself for being this way to accepting it and living with it.
We all want something unchanging to cling to in this world of eternal flux and for me this seems to be the only thing I can really claim. It is who I am for better or for worse.
So, yes. I think sexuality reveals your true self.
people don't kill multiple times and then feel "genuine regret" except for themselves. Get real. Being a serial killer doesn't make you a psychopath, but it sure as fuck doesn't make you an ordinary human being
Is it ridiculous? That reveals how the person would fight. They're the sort who would only get into a fight if they were in a crowd. And they wouldn't actually fight, they would hang back until someone was knocked to the floor then they would run up and start stamping on the fallen guy's head.
If that guy managed to get up, they would run away.
What you do in front of other people doesn't determine who you are, its what you do when you're alone that shows your true colors. Take for instance litering, you may be pro environment around other people but when you throw cigarette butts and garbage on the ground when you're by yourself. Well it speaks for itself
I roleplay getting murdered on but I'm not suicidal and try to stay healthy.
DESU there is no such thing as a true self, human personality changes depending on your given environment and situation, most peoples lives are just really boring so they think they wouldn't change if they got new friends or moved to a different country or whatever.
