The Ride of Your Life

I've seen this book for quite sometime now.  And the catch phrase "The Japanese Bestselling Phenomenon" on the book's cover, even made me more interested.  I can't help but be fascinated with anything Japanese! (^0^)/ And so, I finally got myself a copy last week.  The book is called Kokology.  The title was coined from the Japanese word kokoro, which means "heart, spirit, feelings" and the Greek word logia which means "study".  In simple terms therefore, it is the study of your heart and soul.  The authors, Tadahiko Nagao and Isamu Saito, defines it as "a series of psychological games designed to uncover emotional and behavioral traits of the players."  It's quite an interesting read.  I bet it would be good for couples or groups looking for something different to do!  It's fun and at the same time, you get to know each other better - a peak at the psychological maze of those close to you.  Try this game called "The Ride of Your Life"

The Ride of Your Life

How do we bring thrills into our lives? Watching movies, traveling, and playing sports and games of chance.  Or maybe a trip to an amusement park, a world where thrills mingle with fantasies.  Let's take a trip back to that realm of childhood excitement and fun.

1. You enter the park gate, and a roller coaster looms before you with a line of people waiting in turn.  How long do you have to wait in line before getting to ride?

2. Your turn finally comes and now you're racing and plunging around the course.  What kinds of feelings does the speed bring out in you?

3. At the most exciting point in the course, the roller coaster dives into a pool of water and you're drenched by the spray. What do you shout or scream at this instant?

4. Next you decide to try the merry-go-round.  But during your ride, for some reason the horse you're riding breaks down and stops moving.  What do you say to the horse?

5. Your ride on the roller coaster was exciting, but it wasn't all that it could have been.  If you were going to design the perfect roller coaster, what would the course look like?  Draw a detailed picture of the course.

Key to The Ride of Your Life
(Do not proceed with this section unless you have already written your answers to the questions above.)

In psychological terms, rhythmical up-and-down motions represent sexual excitement.  So your responses to the five questions actually show your attitudes toward sex.

1. The time you spent waiting in line reveals how much time you spend, or would like your partner to spend, on foreplay. 

2. Your feelings during the roller-coaster ride reveal how you feel while making love.

3. In Jungian symbolism, water represents the source of life.  Your words at the moment the roller coaster splashed into the pool show what you might say at the moment of sexual climax.  Let's hope you didn't say anything you'll end up regretting in the morning.

4. The horse, in psychosexual terms, is a symbol of the masculine principle.  Your words to your broken-down steed reflect what you might say to yourself or to your partner in situations where the man failed to rise to the occasion.
     "It's all right, don't worry about it.  It's only a ride."  You have a truly gentle and forgiving nature.
     "I can't believe this.  I want my money back!"  You said it, not me.
    "Come on you stupid animal, giddyap!" Yikes!

5. Your plan for the ideal roller-coaster course shows your vision of the perfect sex life.
     The ups and downs of a roller-coaster ride are an exact metaphor for the thrills and lulls of lovemaking.  Was it a long, slow ascent followed by a terrifying plunge? A series of acrobatic loop-the-loops and 360-degree rolls? Or maybe you drew a course where you spend the whole ride turned upsidedown and backward? Don't worry, your secret is safe with me. (^o-)/
