Word Porn Pt II…

So it seems that my inner sapiosexual is scratching the surface once again… not that my desire for intelligence ever lessened, but today it is overwhelming! Maybe it’s because I’ve been wandering through this marvelous city where so many iconic writers and artists once lived… on the same streets and in the same cafés where they once drew their inspiration. Art and literature is so celebrated in the city of lights, and that has inspired your precious Phoenix to share another set of mentally mouthwatering words. I present to you: Word Porn Part II!

Let’s start with elysian… the way this one rolls off the tongue is almost enough to get me turned on. It means “relating to heaven or paradise; characteristic of perfect happiness.” You might have heard this one already in the phrase “Elysian Fields,” the place in Greek mythology reserved for the most virtuous souls. But you might reconsider “Elysian Fields” as my bedroom… after one night with me, you’ll think you’ve died and gone to paradise yourself 😉

There’s also clinomania… this one refers to the “excessive desire to stay in bed.” I think we’re all familiar with this feeling, especially on those idyllic weekend mornings when soft light filters through the windows, your lover caresses you with selfless dedication, and you have all the time in the world to let yourself fade into your deepest desires…  In addition to being a sapiosexual, I also happen to be a clinomaniac, although just because I want to stay in bed doesn’t mean I want to sleep the whole time! 😛

In honor of Paris and all the things I’ve discovered here, my final word for you today is a French one: dépaysement. This translates to several different things in English… it mainly refers to a change in scenery, but it can also carry other connotations such as disorientation or culture shock. This one I find particularly interesting due to its various meanings and interpretations. To me, dépaysement represents that electrifying (and sometimes nerve wracking) feeling of being transported from a familiar world into a new one with boundless opportunity and discovery. It’s something I try to experience every day, and I also try to make my sweet pets experience this as well 😉  So why don’t you come over and let me teach you a little something or two? Let’s embrace our clinomania and achieve dépaysement together…. I promise that you’re pleasure won’t be anything short of elysian…
