Oyster Issue 116: The Obsession Issue
The Obsession Issue.
Sensations are fixed on things that don't directly serve us positively — post-truths, comparative scrolling, bad behaviour and their un-cancellable effects. Enough is never enough. So, let's redefine it.
Adoring the self and being grateful for one's existing base-level dopeness is compelling and contagious — celebrating the success of both mate and match is illuminating.
This issue, we engage in conversations that urge this; we talk to people about passion and sexuality; we unpack things that consume us; we acknowledge what impresses us to the point of envy; we document what feels good; we thrive on fixation; we open our eyes and we see more.
