Explore religion and its controversial history with erotica and sexuality.
Erotic Art of India
Perhaps the most shocking aspect of India (to Westerners, that is) is presented by their “erotic” art. Admittedly one can find such sculptures in the vaults and caverns under European cathedrals, but it is usually crude in execution and generally written off as the errant fancy of some bored sculptor. Anyway, it is considered “immoral” carving. Not in India. The temples flourish such sculptures to the glory of God, recognizing the highly developed consciousness of the connection between pleasure and life—between the natural bents and capabilities of the human being and his religion. God is the creator? Well, how else do mortals come to creation of the human race except by the way that, in the West, is hidden under shame? One school of yoga specifically declares, “Delight is religion.”
Vatican Sex Positions
How not to enjoy sex, brought to you by your friends at the Vatican. Sex has been a topic du jour for the clergy since the clergy became clergy. Like many rules of institutionalized religion, the do nots seem to outnumber the dos. Do not have sex with your neighbor's wife. Do not have sex until you are married. Do not watch porn on the internet. Very rarely in religious doctrine does it say, tho shalt have a blowjob or do unto her as she just did for you. The discovery of long lost manuscripts, dating back almost 600 years, shed light on another important do not. Do not enjoy sex was a common theme throughout much of the history of the Vatican. There are many thousands of positions in which sex cannot be enjoyed. There are hundreds more in which sex cannot even be attempted. Here are just a few of the most popular, originally published as "The Vatican Sex Manual" by Monsignor E.D. Gray, S.J., M.A., in The Rutland Dirty Weekend Book. By using these variations, you and your partner will be unable to have sex in a variety of ways, which will add spice and zest to your abstinence. Based on the old manuscripts found in the cavernous labyrinth beneath the Vatican, these variations are equally unuseful for unmarried couples, who may try them without fear of pregnancy, pleasure, or confession.
Sex in Witchcraft
Sorcery is a recurrent phenomenon in human history, as its contemporary manifestations attest, and always it is found to be amalgamated with sex. The universality of this age-old relationship explains the fascination it has exerted on theologians, historians, jurists, anthropologists, and psychologists, who have applied their combined energies to the study of the subject. In western culture, the classic eruption of witchcraft lasted from around the 13th century to the end of the 18th, and also involved important religious and political elements. That these factors were all cemented together by superstition, hypocrisy, and viciousness is just a testimony to the basic nature of the human animal.
Religious Sex Objects
Long, long ago, when man was very young, and the moon was still mistress of the night skies, the earth was a wondrous place filled with gods, demons, sorcerers, and djinns. Miracles were real, and magicians accomplished stupendous feats. There was no pollution, no smog, no nuclear sword of Damocles dangling over the green fields and blue seas. Best of all, there were no Kremlins or Pentagons where sleep was forbidden to enter. Although darkness provided cover for terrors and evils, it also afforded protection for lovers, who did the same things by the dying embers of fires that they do now in centrally heated apartments.
Origin of Sex in Religion
Before the dawn of civilization, man was little more than an animal, and he naturally had not even the tiniest part of a fraction of the knowledge which we moderns possess. But he did have a vast capacity for wonder—a capacity which, unfortunately, has drastically declined today. Early man was incessantly mystified, and given to pondering the mysteries. Things which are commonplace and explicable enough to us of today were uncomprehended, mysterious, and beyond exploration to him. All apparently complex phenomena filled our primitives with a kind of holy dread; and it was reasonable for them, in their ignorance, to ascribe all strange manifestations to supernatural forces. Sex was not immune to these superstitious beliefs. The origin of religion is uniquely linked to the sexuality of the culture it is attached to.
BDSM Torture Devices Invented by the Church
If you want answers fast, nothing beats torture. It was an integral part of all capital legal proceedings recorded as far back as the 12th century. Often practiced by the inquisition and in most European countries for cases of heresy, blasphemy, adultery, and many other ‘crimes against God.’ Besides beating, suffocating, and burning, ancient Roman-Catholic Churches used other, more depraved ways of extracting confessions from its victims. The clergy was into bondage. In fact, most adult industry BDSM products are quite similar to the torture devices Inquisition-era Christians devised to make the heretics repent. While Papal courts had some intense torture contraptions that dominatrices would never use on submissives, there is still a striking similarity in utility and design to contemporary BDSM devices.
