For many, gay sexuality is reduced to stats and preferences. In an age in which our first encounters with potential sex partners are largely digital, we have encased the ethos of connection into strategic maneuvers advanced one message, one image shared, at a time - a function of numbers and where they fall on our collective continuum of acceptability. At the same time, like never before, we enjoy greater access to individuals who, like all of us, long for connection and who utilize apps to rendezvous. We are caught in an unfolding paradox: at once, we are both liberated as well as constrained. As well, like never before, the power of our intention is critical to move us beyond these domains of our physical attributes into spiritual union that we crave. Behind our personal stats lie our hopes and fears, and if we are to be truly free, we must express what we keep inside.
