In today’s world, one of the biggest issues facing anyone who is trying to be sex positive, live an alternative life or to be an activist is the issue of time or lack thereof.
Having the time to enjoy life was not always so uncommon. In the sixties when societies were relatively prosperous, rents were cheap and salaries were higher, people had time to experiment and enjoy more. They also engaged more with the political system. As a result, the changes started in the sixties are still being felt today.
However, rents and home prices are skyrocketing in all the major progressive cities of the world; Seattle, San Francisco, London, Amsterdam, Paris, Copenhagen and so on.
In many developed countries, life has become much more of a struggle just to keep your nose above water getting the bills paid.
People work two or three jobs just to make ends meet. And then of course there’s commuting. So to think of having another lover or volunteering or simply finding the time to be sexual, often involves scraping out precious hours from a packed day.
