I believe that our lives are the richer for the diversity of our acquaintances, so I have always been open to people of every background and vocation. I delight in the idiosyncrasies of others, as they provide the edge that make relationships work.
I am passionate in everything I do, from my work (as a scholar and professor of Chinese and East Asian cultures) to my politics (an aggressive progressive with an early background in activism) and my pastimes (cycling, hiking, music, literature, film and theater, etc.).
Nowhere, however, am I more passionate than in sex, which I regard as the fullest expression of the poetics of body and mind. I am open to any encounter, and I am a passionate, playful and affectionate partner, whose greatest pleasure is in giving pleasure to my partner. I attend with great care to his every response, anticipating from the heave of his chest or the flutter of his lips the precise touch or kiss that will ignite him.
