Re: Aikido and Libido

"sort of like dancing"

Good title for a book that
Only joking, I agree, though I think some people don't stay with aikido for the same reason. The close contact freaks them out. I heard of a dojo where everyone hugs each other at the end of class, thought that was sweet, though maybe a bit OTT.

I think that that the need for/fear of, human touch is a separate issue from libido though. Different drive, but obviously they're grey areas.

Do it often, do it well, do it carefully,
