(via smoot)

Ada dua wanita yang paling menakutkan di muka bumi ini, yang pertama yang selalu berlari jauh sekali ketika diajak serius. Yang kedua yang selalu ngajak serius tapi sama sekali tidak tahu caranya.
Yeah

Yeah

A story about a man who used to be alone, that’s not used to be lonely.
Teaser

Entah memang baru-baru ini saja, atau cuma perasaan saya saja. Saya kurang tahu.

Entah kenapa, sekarang itu jomblo tampaknya hina (red:dihinakan) banget ya. Tampak seperti jomblo atau single (klo g terima dibilang jomblo) itu adalah suatu nasib sial yang seburuk-buruknya sial.
Orang jomblo bakal dibully habis-habisan dan dijadikan lelucon pleh lawan-kawannya, apapun alasannya. Apalagi yang mendekati jomblo perak. (Red: ga pernah pacaran blas)
Orang jomblo bakal sering melamun, mengasihani dirinya sendiri yang tak kunjung diberkahi pasangan oleh tuhan.
Orang jomblo bakal sering menyanyakan pada semesta, kenapa dunia begitu tak adil padanya.
Orang jomblo bakal minder, bakal bertanya-tanya apa yang salah pada dirinya.

Jomblo atau single (g usah marah lah dibilang jomblo), nampaknya dekat banget sama satu kata yang paling ditakuti oleh orang-orang. Satu kata. Kesepian.

Persepsi masyarakat tentang kejombloan ini, sangat berbahaya. Lebih bahaya daripada bahaya laten komunis.
Terutama buat muda-mudi. Kenapa?
Karena persepsi ini bakal menyempitkan arti cinta, menyempitkan arti kebahagiaan, dan orang milih pasangan lebih asal. Haha

Muda-mudi sekarang bakal mengira hanya dengan melepas kejombloannya lah ia bisa mendapatkan cinta dan kebahagiaan.
Bakal mengira, ketika dia putus cinta, berakhirlah dunia itu seisinya.
Bakal mengira, sendiri bakal terhina, asal punya gak masalah.

"All you need is love, all you want is sex, all you have is porn"

Persepsi kita tentang jomblo ini akhirnya merasuki kita, meracuni hingga tulang belulang. Menodai hingga ruh.
Kita bakal melakukan segala apapun cara agar tidak menjadi jomblo, kita berikan semuanya walaupun sadar kalau dirampok. Waktu, uang, harga diri, atau yang lainnya. Apapun dilakukan, untuk menghindar sejauh-jauhnya dari satu kata, jomblo atau single (ga usah ngotot klo artinya beda deh).

Entah sejak kapan dan apa yang mendorong„ jangan-jangan ini konspirasi dari zionis supaya kita gak peduli sama permasalahan- permasalahan yang lebih penting untuk digalaukan?

Atau sekedar pengalihan isu ?

Jangan-jangan band-band yang mendayu-dayu cinta itu dibayar untuk menggalaukan kita, sehingga kita lupa masalah bensin, beras, LPG, daging, kedele, dan lainnya.

Haha!

Lakukan apa yang ingin dilakukan, kejar segala apa yang diinginkan. Gak ada yang untung atau rugi selain diri sendiri. Gak ada yang bertanggung jawab selain diri sendiri untuk kesalahan yang diperbuat
Berhenti dengarkan orang lain, untuk keputusan yang berdampak pada diri sendiri.
“Kenapa kamu takut dibilang sendiri dan kesepian?
“Kenapa kamu takut menjalani cinta tak sama seperti yang orang lain jalani?”
“Kenapa kamu takut merayakan kesenangan dan kebahagiaan atas ketakutan dituduh kafir?”

“Masyarakat menciptakan parameter-parameter itu; mesum, alim, bejat, jahat, baik, kesepian, bahagia, dan yang lainnya.” “
Kenapa kamu takut menjadi diri sendiri karena takut ditinggalkan oleh yang lainnya?”
“Kenapa kamu takut berbahagia sebagaimana sejatinya kamu berbahagia?”

Setelah banyak bertanya pada bayangannya sendiri yang ada di cermin, iya tampar mukanya sendiri. Yang kanan, kemudian yang kiri. Barulah ia mulai berteriak dan memukuli cerminnya sampai pecah berkeping

Seks. Iya, saya sekarang mau bahas soal seks. Yang menurut saya sudah mengalami suatu penyimpangan. Haha

Kalau kawan-kawan punya waktu iseng buat tanya, silahkan tanyakan kepada orang yang pernah melakukan hubungan seks, apa tujuannya?

Kalau di pelajaran biologi dulu, manusia melakukan hubungan seks adalah untuk reproduksi, Membuat keturunan, menjauh dari kepunahan.

Tapi, dari sekian banyak orang melakukan seks, kira-kira berapa orang yang melakukannya untuk tujuan reproduksi? Membuat keturunan?
Bahkan setelah menikah pun, saya rasa juga tidak jauh berbeda.

Tampak sudah,tujuan seks menjadi tidak semestinya, tidak alami. Atau malah berevolusi?

Menjadi sarana komunikasi, menjadi budaya, perlambang cinta, sekedar olahraga, atau malah bersenang-senang.

Sebenarnya ini bukan hal baru, sudah sejak jaman dahulu kala. Kamasutra contohnya, variasi gaya, variasi teknik, untuk meningkatkan kenikmatan dan menaikkan value seks menjadi perbuatan seni.

Kemudian muncul yang namanya bokep, film porno. Atau kalau bahasa kerennya sex entertaiment. Seks menjadi suatu hiburan tersendiri buat para muda-mudi yang penasaran.

Menelan Pil KB, mengetatkan kondom, instalasi spiral, atau bahkan sekedar withdrawing. Dilakukan untuk menghindari kehamilan.
Wow!
Kita melakukan seks, tapi menghindari yang namanya reproduksi.

Apa yang membuat hal ini terjadi? Nafsu?
Kalau saya lulusan pesantren saya mungkin bakal bilang ini adalah godaan setan yg ingin menjerumuskan kita ke perzinahan. Tapi saya bukan. Haha

Tingkat survival spesies kita tinggi, sehingga memberikan anggapan bahwa reproduksi itu bukan lah suatu keharusan. Bukan hal utama.
Dan bisa jadi dibarengi tingkat kecerdasan kita lebih daripada spesies lain, sehingga ingin menaikkan value seks dengan berbagai macam gaya dan selera. Ditambah lagi, cukup menyenangkan.

Sama seperti makan, yang menjadi tak sekedar asal kenyang, tapi juga sebagai kesenian dan hiburan buat panca indera. Seks pun juga mengalami evolusi

  • Z : klo menurut mas, diam itu apa?
  • A : klo menurutku, diam adalah menyadari bahwa sebanyak apapun kata tak cukup untuk mengungkapkan

Saya yang sekarang, selalu menertawai saya yang 2 tahun lalu, yang pernah percaya bahwa cinta sejati itu ada, yang mudah percaya dengan dengan rencana-rencana imajinatif yang kau buat.

Saya yang 2 tahun lalu, selalu menertawai saya 4 tahun yang lalu. Yang bodoh memperjuangkan hal-hal semu. Yang dengan bangga meneriakkan satu nama, dengan angkuh.

Saya yang 4 tahun lalu, selalu menertwai saya yang 7 tahun lalu. Yang dengan ekstrim mengutuk wanita-wanita tak berjilbab, orang-orang yang pacaran, dan bercita-cita semu beraktif peran dalam kekhalifahan. Haha

Saya yang 7 tahun lalu, selalu menertawai saya 10 tahun yang lalu. Yang baru mengenal internet, masuk ke usia pubertas, kemudian mencari gambar di google, “jennifer lopez” dan “pamela anderson”

Saya yang 10 tahun lalu, selalu menertawai saya yang 14 tahun yang lalu. Yang sok nantang anak MTs, padahal diketak sekali nangis.

Saya yang 15 tahun lalu, menertawakan saya yang 18 tahun yang lalu, yang suka berlarian bugil di halaman rumah, mengejar anak ayam.

Jadi, saya begitu meyakini. Kelak 3 tahun yang akan datang, mungkin saya bakal menertawai apa yang saya lakukan sekarang. Termasuk menulis hal di tumblr seperti ini. Haha.

Kita sepertinya selalu merasa besar, merasa mampu, wajar kan?

  • A : kamu percaya takdir?
  • B : percaya. Kamu?
  • A : tidak, sampai akhirnya aku bertemu dirimu.
Kan. Sakit itu perlu

Kan. Sakit itu perlu
