    Dr Block, I just read your article ‘Make 2015 the Year of the Bonobo on the Ecologist’s website. Can I say how interesting I found it? I don’t know much about apes, and nothing about bonobos (I’d vaguely heard of them, but that was it). But also, I loved all the sex references and the positive theme of the article. It was just what I needed. I’m 29, male, British and bisexual. I’m also, rather embarrassingly, a virgin (both with men and women). This isn’t something I’m proud of but a combination of a religious upbringing (I’m not religious any longer), and a shy persona has made talking to people difficult. The longer I wait the harder it gets. I also face the issue of women being put off by my sexuality and many don’t seem interested in virgins…. At our office Christmas party a drunk lass (I don’t drink) told me she had a secret crush on me and kissed me on the cheek twice. I went to the cinema with her, once, as what I saw was a date (she might have disagreed) and I’m due to go to movies again with her this Friday – well, her and a friend of hers. And whilst I do really want to be like the bonobos and have sex, it is also just an achievement for me actually ask a girl out, or talk to one (well, go on a date with one). So whatever happens, that’s sort of a victory for me, though the longer I leave it, the harder it gets and my first time will probably be pretty bad and quick anyway; they usually are (so I read).

    What I really loved about your article as well was the strong positive female theme running through it. I am so in favour of women being strong in the bedroom and boardroom. I think too many women today feel like they have to wait for a guy to ask them out – one woman at work, younger than me, was lamenting the fact her boyfriend hadn’t yet proposed. When I asked why she didn’t propose to him she was almost speechless, informing me she couldn’t do that. I wasn’t quite sure why. I find it sexy when a woman asks a guy out because a) I’m an introvert and b) it shows me that she is the kind of woman who isn’t really interested in tradition and we will, probably, get on, if she can look past my geekiness.

    I recently finished my PhD in History, and it was a difficult year last year, with it coming to an end and trying to find a job. So I’m hoping 2015 is a far better year, and what better way to start it than by reading your article?!

    So, Dr Block, thanks again for writing it. You made me smile.

    LOVED your #GoBonobos journal posting on a fitting New Year’s resolution. I lapped-up every word and could not stop reading it. So well expressed thoughts that resonate as always. One of the many reasons we love you and what you do!

    Great resolutions! I especially like this part: “Work towards eradicating sexual shame. Resolve to enhance the bonoboësque qualities within you, share more, judge less, empathize with others and eroticize your life. Resolve to break bad common-chimpish habits of getting mad when things don’t go your way, hoarding stuff out of fear and greed, shaming others out of envy or ignorance and/or raging (whether abusively or impotently) like a grumpy old ape. Resolve to express your natural urge to “party like a bonobo,” to savor and share the simple, most profound pleasures of life every day and night of the year with friends, lovers and, perhaps most importantly, with strangers. Bonobos love strangers. After all, the unknown can frightening… or sexually exciting. The common chimp in you is always in a state of fear and suspicion. You inner bonobo is always open to love.”

    Just finished reading your amazingly illuminating and wonderfully written book The Bonobo Way (can you tell I’m a fan?) and I just want to say thank you for your constant march towards a better and more peaceful world, starting with our own limited world of friends, relatives and loved ones. We may not be able to change the whole world but we can certainly change our own world. Thank you for showing the way. And hey everybody, read this book, I’m telling you it will touch you where no other book dares to go…go bonobos!
