Can't begin to tell you how happy I am to see something so explicitly 'woman' written in our local daily, The Star. From as far back as I can remember, women are known as men's playthings and that the sexual act is merely an 'exercise' for women. For men, orgasm is a necessary thing but for women, whether they receive mutual sexual pleasure or not, did not matter. Women's need to derive pleasure from the act of making love has been supressed or swept under the carpet by our conservative society. Acknowledging that 'YES, I WANT TO HAVE AN ORGASM' or 'Yes, I LIKE HAVING SEX' is like saying 'Yes, I am a slut who is free for all'. In the Western culture, women enjoy sex as much as men because they acknowledge the fact that there is a need to. And women are more forthright about their right to enjoy the act themselves. Not that I condone free sex or unsafe sex but I just think that in acknowledging that we are women and human, we need to enjoy the pleasure of making love as well as men. Hence, the article I am woman by DR NOR ASHIKIN MOKHTAR in The Star came in a timely manner. In the article, the writer educates women (and ignorant men)about the clitoris, which is the female equivalent to the male's penis. Don't be shy-shy to read it and admit it lah....come on! Normal part of the body only what! But the thing is that our society don't often recognize or 'make full use of this part of the body' because 'ahem' it's dirty-lah to think of such things? Bull Shit.
Space Sweeper the Korean Sci-Fi Blockbuster hits Netflix 2021 Image Source: KoreaTimes Let me come clean. The first thing I thought when I saw Song Joong Ki leading the lineup for this movie was ' Is this OK?' ' Hhhmmm.....what about, you know...his personal life', and as a fan of his previous personal work, I had the same doubt I had when he was casted in 'Descendants of the Sun'. Sorry, Joong Ki. 😳 But the concept of a sci-fi movie in the Korean film platter was enticing. The trailer didn't look half bad either. When it comes to space movies, Hollywood has always been the Big Guy. We expect Hollywood to deliver the big guns and explosions while Kdrama land is all mush, love, arm grabs, ice-cold kiss scenes, love triangles, and of late, time traveling. So, sci-fi? Interesting. Honestly, I went in with an empty mind which is not necessarily an open one. Ditched the reviews, writeups, Youtube reactions and everything else and hit the 'watch' butto
