I know that this could be potentially offensive to some so I am putting the rest behind the cut. I know this subject has the potential to be very volatile. And for many it is hard to talk about sex and sexuality with maturity and respect, period. However I think there is a lot to be said on the subject. My boyfriend helped me to see how contortion could be sexy. I don't think that he fetishizes me for doing contortion but he definetly has enjoyed watching me.

But why is there this association? Also, contortion training is too technical to be sexy, at least on a day-to-day training basis. What I take issue with, really, is that we do not seem to have any choice about whether we want to be associated with something sexual or not. There is this automatic association of contortion with the perverse, the abject or the uncanny. Personally, the association of extreme flexibility with the bizarre, abject and uncanny is part of its appeal for me.
