Choose your sexual story carefully—because you’re going to live it. Humans find meaning and patterns in everything we do. So everyone develops stories about themselves—why they’re always (or never) late; how they’re terrible (or great) with numbers; how a stove is something they’ve never (or always) felt comfortable around.
