50 Ways To Lose Your Mind (To Leave Your Lover)

by Susanna Mittermaier

The number 50 has become quite sexy recently… All from Simon and Garfunkel´s “50 Ways to Leave your Lover” to 2015´s “50 Shades of Grey”, book and movie. Now ladies and gentlemen I am introducing you to the new black: “Losing your mind”! You might wonder about the sexy part of this… well let me show you! Are you ready?

Don’t worry I am not going to torture you with an article of 50 points about your mind, although some minds might appreciate an article thoroughly written with details and with footnotes and it might even turn them on. Those I would call the mental masturbators, the people who get a kick out of using their minds excessively. But, hey, honestly, don’t we all have those moments where it seems so cozy and safe to be in our brains and shut out the world to the degree where we do not have to receive more than we can control? Don´t you like the control your mind gives you? You are the dominator of the world… at least the one in your head? Would you admit, at least to yourself, that this gives you a kick? Its like having Mr. Grey and Miss Steel all in your brain, every day and every moment!

Minds are great lovers! No wonder most people have their primary love affairs with their minds! The mind does not challenge you with new information, the good old and known information is at hand at all times and any new comers are strip searched upon entry. Doesn´t it sound perfect? Happy end?
