Human Sexuality

A major confusion

Published on: 29 Dec 2015 updated August 20, 2018

There is about as much consensus in society about sexuality as there is about spirituality, and more sex happens in peoples minds than their genitals.

Confusion arises because those who assume moral leadership say one thing and do another. Couple this with the ongoing deconstruction of our societies by social and economic forces.

Sigmund Freud described sexuality as the driver of our psychology and a motivator for all our behaviour which remains relevant today.

But the primary drive to have sex comes from a base biological desire to pass on our genes and perpetuate our species. The desire to breed is an instinctive and powerful force

Understanding Menopause

A time of change

Menopause is one of the major changes that happens in every woman’s life. It begins when the ovaries reduce production of oestrogen and progesterone which causes biological processes in the body to change.

Medically, menopause is defined as the time after 12 months have passed since your last period. It is a biological process, not a medical illness, which involves a process of change – physically, emotionally, psychosocially, sexually, and even spiritually.

Menopause is not a disease, rather, it is a beginning of another journey towards self-realization. Many changes occur in a woman’s physical, emotional and psychological aspects during menopause. Many of these changes often cause stress and depression among women.

Some women may experience a

Amenorrhea

Irregular periods or cessation of the menstrual cycle

Remember that a normal period begins sometime between age 7 and 15 and if it doesn’t then this is unusual and some investigation is advised. The period cycle is defined as the number of days between the first day of your bleeding until the first day of your next period.

A normal period cycle is typically between 21 and 35 days but often around 27-29 days with the period or time of bleeding (flow) and occasional discomfort lasting from 2 to 7 days. The amount of bleeding or flow varies for different women, however that experience should be fairly consistent every month.

Why do periods sometimes stop?

If your periods stop unexpectedly

The Marriage of Children

A crime against humanity

Marriage is a global institution and if we step back into history there was a natural pairing off mostly between young men and women as they reached a balance of physical and mental maturity that enabled them to live happily and raise a family.

It is probable that there has always been some deviant or criminal behaviour within tribal groups but more so in the field of conquest. But the majority of the world’s population who had achieved a sense of balance and purpose in life would instinctively know when the time for marriage was right and this time was defined as when the girl is capable of bearing children and caring for them.

Women who have regular spontaneous orgasms, also called Restless Genital Syndrome (RGS).

PGAD is a very rare condition thought to affect about 1 in 1,000,000 women. This condition can begin before puberty and continue throughout life. Or it can start any time, like sometimes just before menopause. The medical establishment can find no cause or treatment, and any woman suffering from this condition may be subject to some experimentation at the hands of the medical establishment.

This condition makes many woman’s lives a misery and the fact that they are having a multiple of orgasms every day precludes them from enjoying normal sexual activity.

Not only are there no known

The Woman's Moon

Harmonising the menstrual cycle

The name menstruation comes from the Latin word menses which means “menstrual flow”, it is also the plural of mensis meaning month and is related to the Greek word “mene” meaning moon. This indicates a historical relationship between the lunar and menstrual cycles.

The moon is a symbol for primal female energy as associated with the goddesses of pagan times like Diana the queen of witches, huntress and protector of the wild and free who was worshipped in ancient Rome. Like the Indian Goddess Kali, she is still respected and admired today as a symbol of woman’s prowess and capacity to love and protect. (Details below)
