Very cool piece, and I really relate to this part. After spending time on Medium I began wondering if I could do the self-help article thing now and then just to make a buck, but I couldn't bring myself to do it. I came here with the intention of writing about my sex and relationship life, and while I've branched into a few other topics, all my stories come from a personal place. This is the only way I can enjoy writing and I hope (and believe) it's valuable to others, even if it doesn't make big promises to fix your life like self-help does!
Also, I'm curious if you have any tantra book suggestions. I've been taking an online course and while I think that works better for me (having a human to guide me through exercises) I am curious to read more too.
Happy to have connected with you on here too!
