Sex and Sexuality

 
Sex is one of those taboo subjects.  Funny things taboos.  But it's all part of the disease of an oppressive culture.  Taboos include things like money, sex and politics.  Funny how the three go so well together.  Rich politicians in sex scandals! But if you can control people's thinking you have gone a long way to controlling them.

There was the sex revolution of the 1960's which was an attempt to break out of the sexual oppression of the western capitalist consumer society.  It was very important and it did achieve a lot of success.  But it also fizzled out in many respects.  Many people think of the sexual revolution and sexual liberation as all about sex and orgies but it was far more important than that.  It helped break down the taboos and the prejudice around sexuality.  It helped people become more authentic as human beings.  There are those weird religious leaders and dictates that attempt to suggest that sexual liberation and freedom are immoral or generally not a good thing.  But that is so contradictory it is hard to believe they get away with it.

For example, Christianity is all about being authentic and being true to yourself.  The suggestion is that God made people in (his/her/ho/hum) own image.  But to be what you are becomes sinful.  Weird stuff.  It is interesting to note that on the one hand there was the tendency to suggest that homosexuality was immoral and it was (and is) generally oppressed.  Then there was the onset of the Aids epidemic in the 1980's and a tendency to suggest this was God's judgement on the immoral behaviour of homosexuals and promiscuous people.  But it turns out that what drives the aids problem into those communities is the secrecy and the oppression.  Liberate the population from the confines of the taboos and you get access to beneficial medical assistance and a reduction in Aids.  Education is the key and education must be liberal otherwise it is indoctrination which we all recognise is no good at all.

It is also interesting to notice that it is the most oppressed people and the poorest populations where the disproportionate population growths occur.  Educated and financially balanced societies generally have population stability.  Given that amongst the many problems humanity faces population explosion is a very serious one it is hard to believe that all around the globe there are religious leaders and politicians (and thick skulled people) who suggest that the continuous oppression of sexuality is somehow a good thing.  Liberate people to be authentic and at peace with themselves and others and what you get is a paradise of sensual experience in a sustainable environment.  So if you are concerned about saving the world for goodness sake start being liberated and enjoying yourself.

Being in touch with the sublime reality of being human is probably the only way to save the world.

I have compiled a list called Sexy Stuff of places which are sometimes euphemistically referred to as "Adult" sites, where you can buy sexy stuff, but I prefer to call them "Liberal" sites.  Adult sites on the internet often include pornographic web sites and I do not promote pornography.  See the pornography page for a perspective on this.
