Anais Nin

May 15th, 2009

“I do not want to be the leader. I refuse to be the leader. I want to live darkly and richly in my femaleness. I want a man lying over me, always over me. His will, his pleasure, his desire, his life, his work, his sexuality the touchstone, the command, my pivot. I don’t mind working, holding my ground intellectually, artistically; but as a woman, oh god, as a woman I want to be dominated. I don’t mind being told to stand on my own feet, not to cling… but I am going to be pursued, fucked, possessed by the will of a male at his time, his bidding.” ~Anais Nin

Since the first time I found this quote I’ve been avoiding putting it up like the plague. Because everyone and their sister has it in their blog somewhere. And I don’t make a big deal of it, but I try not to be a follower.

But when it comes right down to it, if something is true for you – really, really true… not just true because everyone else says it’s true – then you’re not following. Not really. So here it is.
