Eroticism

A celebration of life

One of the most commonly shared views of what constitutes erotic is the female body and eroticism could well be defined as an interest or even an obsession with what people perceive as being erotic.

To break this down further, the erotic generates a smile and stimulates desires that may not necessarily be sexual. Erotica consists of the wide range of subject material, and eroticism the passion that people have to appreciate and seek out what they perceive as being erotic.

When we look at life, human sexuality is an essential part of life and the act of sexual intercourse between consenting persons is one of the greatest joys in life. But when we bring

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

Sacred Sexuality

Into the Realm of Bliss and Wholeness with Sacred Sexuality

Sacred Sex Art from Khajuraho, India

Sacred sexuality has had a great deal of press in recent years however with new avenues of research and new understandings, these ideas are spreading within the wider community. There are those who continue to disparage this work, but they are an increasing minority.

It is hoped that the casual reader may get that sexuality has nothing to do with morals or social rules, it is more to do with a divine connection which occurs in the hearts of lovers and is fuelled by real intimacy and sex is only a part of that conversation.

Sacred sexuality is not about having

Sensual Massage

The gentleness of touch

Before getting into this touchy subject, please remember that we experience the world through our senses and our entire perception of life depends on our sense perception. In other words, everything we see, hear, touch or taste is conveyed through our senses to our minds for interpretation and sensual massage increases our ability to perceive.

Our senses are those of vision, touch, hearing, taste and smell. Just think, we exercise our bodies so that they perform more efficiently. We do mental exercises to keep our minds sharp and alert so why not sensual massage to enhance sensitivity?

Sensual massage is generally a soft massage over the entirety of the body that stimulates all the sense receptors

When “No” Means “Yes”

The most infamous contradiction

We live in an age of confusion where very few people know their own minds or even have control over their desires. The majority are locked into compulsive behaviours and unable to be truly responsible.

All human beings have an underlying desire to perpetuate our species through the passing on of genetic material. We have evolved the system of marriage as a way to do that which ensures that children have some stability in their lives and every young man and young women has an inherent desire for intimate connection with another human being.

Unfortunately human desires and human sexuality have been been hijacked by capitalism into a great deal of confusion in the population.

Pleasure and Beauty

Beauty; an interaction that pleases the senses

Bob Marley

Beauty is a trick of the mind

Our minds and lives continually seek balance and beauty is seen when there are balanced proportions. We look for it in everyone’s face and body, and we feel pleasure at the sight of balance as balance equals beauty and beauty is related to the golden number.

Not everyone remembers Bob Marley, the charismatic and popular musician. If you did not know him and passed him in the street, he may pass unnoticed. Like all people, there is beauty in the face but in Bob’s case, the beauty in his music; the sound, the meaning and the delivery. The beauty in the person has

Sleep Walking

Nocturnal wandering

Sleep walking can happen to anyone, but of all the sleep states, it occurs less commonly and is more likely to be encountered by watching discovery channel than in real life. Yet like so many things about ourselves we don’t understand, sleep walking is such an interesting subject that it has featured on global television.

Sleepwalking, contrary to most belief, apparently has little to do with dreaming. In fact, it occurs when the sleeper is enjoying his most oblivious, deepest sleep; a stage in which dreams are not usually reported. According to the US National Sleep Foundation, sleepwalking is prevalent in 1–15% of the general populace and is most prevalent in children between the age of 4–8 years

Problems Sleeping?

Why Can’t I sleep?

There are many reasons that we have difficulty sleeping and a lack of sleep over time causes the body and mind to become less able and more susceptible to physical and mental illness. But sleep deprivation is a cause of suffering.

How much sleep do we need?

Babies can sleep over 12 hours per day, but by the time we reach 60 years of age, many get by happily with 3 or 4 hours per night. There is no hard and fast rule, but most adults get by with 6-8 hours per night. Those who don’t need as much sleep have more time to do the things they enjoy.

What keeps as awake?

Factors like noise,

Confession 103

Dealing with other peoples attitudes

Introduction: When we look at the world around us, we see that life and death simply cycles on through what seems like eternity. Throughout the history of human sexuality for the most part has been fairly basic. When people have the urge to have sex and there was a consenting partner, there was usually no problem and although sometimes pregnancy may have been inconvenient and dangerous, a new life was celebrated until the arrival of morality.

In historic times I like to think that people were more attuned to nature and for the most part most of what today are considered crimes against girls and women were committed by invading armies. Yet over the past

And a new freedom

Introduction: receiving a story like this in my mailbox is another insight into the strange beauty of human life and relationships. If you read this story, you may may weigh up the pros and cons from a moral perspective and yet we need to celebrate people like this who find joy in human companionship outside of the moral stereotype that many people are trapped in.

Hello Diana, I heard that you are looking for stories to illustrate that morality is not all that it’s cracked up to be and that people can find happiness and even spiritual fulfilment outside of what are considered to be normal societal boundaries. You could say
