This is an interesting advice column regarding desire outside of the marriage bond.
Whence does this desire spring? Leonard Cohen seems to be the best poet of this topic. I really want to see the L Cohen documentary -- it hasn't screened in Tucson yet. If you have a quick connection, here's a primer on this salacious Buddhist monk, the video of which also gives a taste of the Asian fetish that the comments on the Salon article center around.
Thank G-d I've got no inner fascist; all I've got is this inner L Cohen, altho' I admit I'm not a septuagenarian Canadian Jew.
Bob, this is good source material on Cohen's aging, art and spiritual practice; it appears to be taken from the documentary.
