Corinne Edwards Interviews: The Soul of Sex (Thomas Moore) – Part 2 (1998)
Thomas Moore and Corinne Edwards discuss the ins and outs of sex and the necessity of it in people’s lives today. Moore believes that the focus of today’s culture is obsessed with a fast-paced lifestyle, one that keeps us from taking time out of our busy schedules to feed our souls with love and joy. When we do what we love instead of what we think we should be doing, it brings a richness to life that can fulfill us in a way that makes sex a secondary priority.
He discusses the importance of friendship in a relationship as well as the importance of recognizing your partner’s emotional needs, even if it entails being patient while abstaining from sexual activity. If we slow our lives down and stop to really take a good look around, Moore suggests, then sexuality can be felt and seen in all the facets of life that surround us.
