Whither Hedonism?

Okay, okay… I can hear what your asking. Why Hedonism?

Well, in order to answer correctly, we need to understand that hedonism isn’t the belief that we should have sex with everyone. Not only would that be impractical, but a tad tiring as well.

Hedonism, according to Merriam-Webster, is simply “the doctrine that pleasure or happiness is the sole or chief good in life”. Or, if you wanna get a little philosphical, hedonism is our moral obligation is to maximize pleasure or happiness.

I found that I was doing that in my own life. I was aiming it in such a way that stress and grumpiness were at a minimum. But I was doing it ethically. I wasn’t pursuing it at the expense of others. And I was pursuing it in moderation. It has served me quite well.

So why this site? Well, this site is the next step. There are things in my life that I enjoy. Namely; food, travel, and sex (Not necessarily in that order). And as I get older, I find that I want to pursue these enjoyments to the best of my ability.

And I want to talk about it. Hence, this site.

It’s going to be a long slog. I am not an epicure, nor a world traveler…but I want to be. This site will help document that journey to see how far I can actually get.
