Whistles and Cat Calls

What’s a girl to do?

There’s a story going around about the aspiring actress Shoshana Roberts who walked the streets of new York and got 108 cat calls over the 10 hours of her experiment. But who in their right mind is going to spend 10 hours a day walking the streets just to make the point that some guys have bad manners and she doesn’t know how to deal with that?

In contrast, the New York Post writer Doree Lewak who would you believe was brazen enough to walk by some building sites bra less in an otherwise fairly modest dress and she says that cat calls are flattering and

Saving The Goddess

Women of the Light and Sexual Healing

Goddess Laurel

by Goddess Laurel

I work with men. I don’t mean in an office. I work with them on my bed in my healing room. I’m what we call a “Tantrika” but the new sexual healers can now be called “Women of the Light.” My sister Goddesses have many names these days, sacred prostitute, temple priestess, sexual healer, sacred whore, etc.

I teach the basics of Tantra, an ancient spiritual teaching that harnesses pleasure and ecstasy. Tantra is a wide body of knowledge and of course I can’t teach the entire body of knowledge connected to the various forms.

I spend two hours with my clients, teaching them how

Exploitation of Women

An age old practice

For the past 6000 years women have been second-class citizens although since the Industrial Revolution, it seems as if they have been allowed a degree of freedom. Allowed away from the kitchen and child-minding provided they look pretty and don’t have an opinion.

When times get tough women most often find themselves confined to the kitchen except on rare occasions as when back in the 1700’s, women stormed the palace of Versailles and demanded social equity. They didn’t get it then and it wasn’t long before French women became the most oppressed in Europe.

In today’s Middle Eastern war, it is the Kurdish and Yazidi women who have taken up weapons against daesh as have other

The Sound of Mantra

Connecting and uplifting

In contrast to music and song designed to soothe or stimulate one’s heart and mind towards some short-term happiness, the intent of mantra is to help an individual to transcend the mundane and enter a super conscious existence.

Much of our modern music can stimulate right action towards greater peace and harmony that like the brokenhearted cowboy songs it serves to reinforce a sense of hopelessness and limitation. Some music will set your body free to move and dance while some music facilitates greater reflection.

Mantra if you like is the most sophisticated of reflective sound. The melody or arrangement of sounds is conducive to brain function and the activation of intelligence rather than emotion. The words

Seeking Heaven - Seeking Pleasure

Reward for service or escapism

Sometimes we wish life could be more heavenly. but what is heaven and where do we find it? Across the Middle East during a time of growing desertification, Heaven was most often described as an idyllic paradise with lush gardens, an abundance of food and no responsibility, all one’s needs are taken care of.

If we look at the temple Art from north-west India across North Africa, it depicts this idyllic heaven as something akin to the mythical hanging Gardens of Babylon. So perhaps we can say that this was in response to harsh living conditions and indeed those with means either created their own miniature paradise or spread and conquered other lands.

The Importance of Pleasure

A temporary release from suffering

Sharing pleasure

When we consider the nature of our lives, a great many of us are trapped in some kind of suffering as a result of external politics and conditions as well as problems we create for ourselves. Pleasure involves our senses of perception be it physical, mental or emotional with spiritual pleasure or ecstasy the highest emotion.

Suffering and unhappiness is not what we are designed for, it’s simply a consequence of a whole lot of stuff either real or unreal. The baseline for human well-being is peace from which happiness, joy, bliss and ecstasy can flower.

However when people are suffering, pleasure offers a temporary respite and yet it has also become

Sex as a Career?

Women have been counselled to become sex workers

A Tumblr image

The concept of a woman offering sex for money and other favours is generally thought of as the world’s oldest profession and as far as we know, there has never been a time in human history where this has not occurred.

Today in many countries despite the cries of some moralists, what many regard as prostitution has been legalised in many countries. Yet when we look at many marriages, they are often little more than agreements validating sex for money.

Yet moralists around the world even though they may be prostituting themselves condemn the activity of the women who make themselves available to men, but

Massage methods from around the world

Starting a massage

Massage is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body and a broader definition may include the manipulation of a person’s energy. However the manipulation of the joints is confined to osteopathy and chiropractic.

Massage is a universal treatment yet around the world people have different approaches because they have different understandings of the human body and how it works.

Massage is also instinctive because when we hurt, we rub the hurt area and we feel better. So every country has it’s own massage style and popular styles have spread around the world to be offered by gifted friends and amateurs, or by trained professionals.

Male Continence

The importance of saving your sperm

John Humphrey Noyes came up with the idea of Male Continence back in the 1840’s as a means of preventing unwanted conception, without injury to either husband or wife and ended up with some 250 people living a communal lifestyle where all men and women of the community were married to each other which stirred up a lot of negative criticism at the time which one would expect as the US is a fairly puritanical country.

However he had a great many enquiries from intelligent men and women in ordinary married life seeking information about Male Continence after seeing and suffering the miseries of involuntary propagation which at the time was remarkable for its
