There is a culture war in full effect in these United States and there are those who want to drag us back to the Dark Ages where dialogues about sexual identity and alternatives to sexual monogamy didn’t exist. Fortunately, we can’t go back — as much as these ignoramuses would like. We are in what the anthropologist Margaret Meade called a prefigurative stage. The myths and symbols that gave meaning and direction to our culture have lost much of their significance (and with good reason), and we are only beginning to create a new cosmology, a culture that respects sex, pleasure, and sensuality; new myths and icons that provide relevant models for a new consciousness of ourselves and of the earth. —( http://thefreshxpres...al-suppression/ )

An ad hominem (Latin for "to the man" or "to the person"), short for argumentum ad hominem, is an attempt to negate the truth of a claim by pointing out a negative characteristic or belief of the person supporting it. Ad hominem reasoning is normally described as a logical fallacy.

I hope so.

That reminds me of the ancient times of Egypt or the Roman Empire. You know these obelisk statues? In fact they were meant to represent the penisses of the Emperors/Pharaos (to "demonstrate" their power)^^. In my city there is one of those phallus statues and I can't pass that place without telling everyone what they depict XD.

If the revolution succeeds we might already have a lot of holy monuments^^

Hedonism is a dead end because it's only goal is to please the limbic system and that makes our executive functioning weaker in turn.

What is up with the infographic?

i'm not talking about outright hedonism. i'm talking about leveraging sexual energy into altered states of consciousness / interpersonal awareness.

i sometimes wonder at what state of development we all would be if there wouldn't have been religions that condemned sexuality as "dirty", "filthy" or generally "bad unless you intend to produce us some more baptized souls".....

Over populated with many fatherless children.

The medicine for my suffering I had within me from the very beginning, but I did not take it. My ailment came from within myself, But I did not observe it until this moment. Now I see that I will never find the light.  Unless, like the candle, I am my own fuel, Consuming myself. "

not necessarily....we came up with contraceptive methods and i know a lot of patchwork families in which the kids grow in happily, although one of their parents might not be their biological one. I have a daughter myself, i didn't "make" her, but met her mom when she was in her 6th month of pregnancy. I was there at her birth and the first to hold her in my arms. She is my daughter since then and i love her very much. Taking care of children has NOTHING to to with living monogamous or not and a lot of children are neglected although they came from (whatever) religious families.

A system to fulfill desires. The hippies gave way to many children who became without parents and panhandle for a living outside of the places you like to visit.

A really bright future bro.

These societies have come and they have not stayed for good reason. We go against the system again and again by trying to prove that is right. The average person goes through 8 people before marriage. What are you testing here with this ? The waters or how one limbos with your private part?

So you are in a monogamous relationship and takeing care of child correct? If there were no blocks to promiscuity ( without birth control) don't you think there would be many more children without parents and many more transfers of STDs.

It's fairly evident in circles where there are no social blocks to sexual promiscuity.

A 2nd revolution? I'm still recovering from the first! IMHO, back then, tantric sex was often just an easy to get into the sack, with little or no emotional attachment or commitment, despite the "spiritual" aspect of it. The spirituality part of it often disappeared after the act. And however the energy is altered, it's still the woman who gets pregnant and is often left holding the baby. Before one attempts to leverage sexual energy into  a greater consciousness the ground rules about commitment & responsibility should be made clear.
