WHAT'S ON YOUR MIND?

Guilty Pleasures

8 comments | February 8th, 2012

Some years ago we were asked what our guilty pleasures were.  We stopped to consider the question, thought about things like french fries, airplane books, mindless TV, and boy bands…but then we wondered why we should have any guilt whatsoever over anything that gives us pleasure.  Really, why?  So we've decided – for us – there's no such thing as a guilty pleasure, becuase pleasures can be so few and far between (not that they should be) and guilt is such a waste of NOW.  After all, why do it if it makes you feel guilty?

And so here's a couple of questions for you…are there any pleasures that make you feel guilty; and if you feel guilty how is it you get pleasure form them – unless of course it's the guilt that makes you feel good in kind of a self-hate way (and who are we to judge?).  So, to some it up, guilty pleasures…you have any and why do they make you feel guilty?

    I’ve always felt a little guilty when I engage in mindless activities as if I’m chewing bubble gum with my brain. You’re right though. Why feel guilty if they feel good?

    I hate making this about food but food is my nemesis. I eat healthy usually. I always pay attention to calories, fat, all the FDA pyramid things. My indulgence is rich foods though. They taste so good but make me feel so bad.

    Not sure if this counts. Sometimes I worry about what turns me on sexually and it makes me feel a bit guilty.

      Hey, Anonymous. Here’s our 2 cents. What turns us on sexually is so much about how we’re each wired, that to spend time feeling guilty about it rather than good seems to be fighting who you are. Assuming that your tastes and wants are legal and consensual, we say indulge whatever feels good – and don’t judge it, or let anyone hate on your happy. Again, our 2 cents from here.

    Not feeling guilty about our pleasures is such a great point. I have just decided. I have no more guilty pleasures just pleasures. Though I probably could use more of those!
