I am not a teddy bear: a gender breakdown

image

So first of all my motivations and possible rewards as a mark are different than a man’s. I am not interested in romance, or confirmations of my virility. I am not interested in her tits or smile. I do not feel her beauty as an acquisition.

The physical sensation will never be the same because I do not have a lot of mass or a workman’s chest. We can snuggle,  but it’s not going to be as good. So the “rhythmic” style of dance now popular which is about having a hug with spectacular musicality, is not really open to me.

Someone asked me if I could enjoy that style marking a man. Problem is that if I find a man small enough that I can see over him to dance in close embrace, then he is probably a mark who I want to revel with, not to mark.

Again because of the mass I cannot delight a girl by hurling her out of axis.  I cannot support her unmanaged weight with a finger  or two,  only with good and mutual technique.  Girls sometimes ask me to dance expecting what  JT, wiggling her fingers in the air,  described as  “magic”.

So…

I am not a teddy bear. And two sets of breasts can get a bit busy.

Marking for me is therefore about art, and as an artist I’m a sculptor, so where other people are interested in rhythm, I’m interested in shape,  form, contrast, dynamic motion. And I need a revel who is ready to dance,  not be danced.
