My conversation with Walker Thornton starts here.
“Maybe as we get older one of the wonderful things we gain is the confidence to follow our own desires and thinking around what feels right for our bodies. And to defy convention?”
Perhaps because I’m a bit of a fatalist to begin with, I tend to go with the much maligned Freud and believe that “anatomy is destiny.”
If you accept that we are human animals, then like all animals, our purpose is to reproduce, and that means we are subject to the inevitable mating dance of life that we are programmed to dance.
Men are forever attracted to young women because they can produce off-spring, young women have to attract the best mate, thus old women, yadda yadda…
I remember when Billy Crystal remarked about Susan Sarandon’s breasts, calling them “puppies” at the Oscars years ago.
Though others may disagree, I thought it was a sweet remark, because her breasts really did look like two sleeping puppies nestled in her bodice.
