The Christian Fundamentalist’s Erotic Dream

by Chicago Man Flickr/creative commons

"[T]he erotic dream of Amreican fundamentalism: a restoration of chivalry, a cleansing of impurity, a nation without sin, an empire of the personal as political." From Jeff Sharlet's The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism at the Heart of American Power (2009)

This dream is especially important to understand, particularly as we await the pending Supreme Court decision that is likely to authorize federal same-sex marriage without interference from the states. Either way the court goes, this singular decision promises to further divide the christian right from everyone else. This dream, this sexual fantasy, helps explain the root of the intense, ...

Park your formulaic sex at the door

Like a lot of people, I took note a couple of weeks ago when Cosmo, Cosmopolitan Magazine, the fun girl's bible, ran a story with pictures laying out 28 Mind-blowing Lesbian Sex Positions. The modern Cosmo was the brainchild of its brilliant editor and author Helen Gurly Brown in 1965, who started dialogs on topics unheard of in print at the time, skillfully merging sexuality with a commercially available mainstream magazine. Long considered a sexual freedom advocate, she told women they could "have it all." With this article on lesbian sex, and few ...

Women Like Sex (a lot)

  "Women like sex. Stop making ‘health’ excuses for why we use birth control” --  Jessica Valenti, author, Guardian columnist, and founder of Feministing.com (@JessicaValenti) Once again, Valenti has focused her laser-sharp analysis to challenge popular arguments on behalf of free access to reproductive health. She urges everyone to stop saying that birth control is necessary for the small percentage of women who use it for medical health reasons, and deal with the reality that 99% of women use birth control, mostly because they like sex, and shouldn't have to make excuses for it. It's amazing that in 2014 ...

Here is small clip* from A Course in Immortality, (en espanol, Un Curso En Inmortalidad), written as an Appendix for our upcoming book, The Unseen Journey (working title), about the erotic connection to cosmic technology.

The most direct, basic, physical manifestation of the reality of Love is experienced in erotic joy, in the intense experience of neurological orgasm, in which the stimulated sensorium explodes with joy ...

Appendix available on-line for upcoming book

by Alice Popkorn Flickr/creative commons

A Course in Immortality was written, and translated to Spanish (Un Curso En Inmortalidad), almost 2 years ago as preparation and background for our planned book on the erotic connection to cosmic technology. This course is an explicit, prescriptive guide to navigating the paths of individual and collective erotic destiny. When published, The Unseen Journey (working title) will have this series of papers (number 0.0 - 0.9) as its Appendix. (Dan Massey and I cowrote A Course in Immortality, and just before Dan set out for higher shores unexpectedly in early 2013, we completed the first working ...

The Erotic Vitalizes Life

Here is another excerpt from our upcoming book, The Unseen Journey (working title), all about the connection between the erotic and spirituality. A first step is to start you thinking analytically about sex, reproduction, and the erotic senses so you can understand their distinct differences. We are still editing the final manuscript so all comments are welcomed. Sex is most definitely not about penis-vagina copulation, although that is the one expression of sex everyone learns about and most people will practice, thinking that there are no alternatives. In fact, penis-vagina copulation is not really about sex at all—it is about reproduction. ...

Gospel According to Goldilocks

Earlier this week, we released another excerpt of our upcoming book, The Unseen Journey (working title) about the unification of eros and agape, only possible by stripping away thousands of years of disinformation and human superstition about the sexual basis for all spirituality. Our book is a declaration that eros and agape are one with unified Love, and that the erotic is a major component of cosmic Love, physical and spiritual. By unpacking and dispensing with the social stagnation and oppressive belief systems that characterize human society today, the erotic's functional purpose in any vitology (way of living in dedication to destiny) asserts ...

Eros and Agape are One, another excerpt from The Unseen Journey (working title)

Anira/WikiCommons Fair Use/Educational

The primary reason we created VenusPlusX a few years ago was to establish a repository of our solutions for freeing humanity of its many misconceptions about an individual's direct connection to cosmic technology. It is also the reason we decided to capture the essential premise of our work in book form. Here is another excerpt of our upcoming book, tentatively entitled, The Unseen Journey, that may prompt some comments and criticism, both of which we crave and adore. We declare that eros and agape are one with unified Love. We declare that the erotic is a major component of cosmic Love. We ...

Religion: Real and Fake

For more on Transhuman Erotic Freedom... Society suffers from a severe misunderstanding of the nature and role of religion. Nowhere is this more apparent than in ongoing arguments about the “separation of church and state.” Blame the Puritans. The basic idea in the U.S. Constitution is one of freedom FROM religion, expressed as “freedom of religion.” The tenets of any religion may not be imposed on its citizens who disagree. This concept is fundamental to the unalienable human right to absolute privacy of person, and pillar of sexual freedom and the bedrock of all other freedoms. The pilgrims who came to Plymouth imagined ...

For more on Transhuman Erotic Freedom... Editor's note: This is one of a series of position papers Dan Massey and I are creating and will soon index on our home page. They briefly explore the evolution of our points of view about a range of issues related to sex, gender, and racial freedom. Your feedback is always welcome. The world’s secret history is strewn with tales of visionaries and pioneers who have advocated for the primacy of erotic joy in connecting each person with the universe at large and endowing each of us with supreme power to shape our own destiny (however ...
