Kaith Ferrer: The Role of Imagination in Sexual Enjoyment: a Personal Reflection

It might cause some discomfort for some and find agreement with others regarding my perception of imagination in sexual pleasure; however, it is important to highlight that this perception is purely subjective, it is Kaith’s opinion backed by their experiences:Starting with a mention of a reading from the popular book "One Hundred Years of Solitude" by Colombian writer Gabriel Garcia Marquez, specifically the unexpected sex scene between Arcadio, I can notice the richness and complexity of the narrative. In the scene, Arcadio eagerly awaits his lover Pilar Ternera, but instead a different woman, Sofia, hired by Pilar, appears. It is evident to him that this woman is not who he expected, as she does not have the characteristic smell of smoke he associates with his lover. Instead, there is an aroma of little flower-scented brillantine emanating from her, and she possesses physical attributes that perplex him, such as swollen breasts blind with man-like nipples, and a sex as hard and round as a nut. Despite his inexperience and virginity, Arcadio is drawn to her, feeling an unexpected and visceral connection (Garcia Marquez, 1967).This detailed and sensory description of the scene manifests in me, being my first time experiencing a bodily reaction, accompanied by a slight exudation of pre-seminal fluid; Although this book contains little eroticism and is limited to a couple of scenes, it manages to provoke this reaction in me a couple more times: I thank in advance the author and his words for taking me beyond the purely physical, allowing me to reflect on such profound themes as identity, sexuality, and destiny, comparing it to what I experience when interacting with the words of certain users, both in public and private conversations, where they are able to create scenarios and situations that excite us, taking us beyond the boundaries of the everyday in a safe and judgment-free manner.Often led by the digital realm, not only because it is where we connect and meet, but because it is a phenomenon that, although may sound jocular, has been fundamental in expanding horizons and unlocking vast possibilities in a scenario where fantasies, desires, and expressions of sexuality intertwine, but, clarifying again that this alone is impossible, needing you, the star user, for challenging the boundaries of reality and for exploring and sharing experiences that can be liberating or challenging for our identity and perception of ourselves: exemplifying the changing nature of our relationships with others and with ourselves in relation to the environment, even satisfying physical needs.The discomfort of all this is how debatable it becomes in conservative societies the use of imagination and what it entails for our pleasure, resulting in complexity in these circles to talk about sex becoming much more difficult if it were about pleasing the other through words and the use of the mind: "The mind behaves like a chain where to reach others I must reach myself previously," How is this done? Simple, by putting aside external opinions to facilitate self-reflection (understanding my own needs and desires).It is important to recognize that imagination is not exclusive to literature or the digital world; it is present in all our sexual interactions, whether alone or with a partner, the ability to fantasize and visualize erotic scenarios can enrich our sex life and strengthen our connection with our own body and that of our partner.Thank you for reading!
