In addition to an increasing appreciation for the feminine principle, both mortal and divine, the eleventh century saw a revaluation of physical love. Some poets had discovered that being in passionate love could change their consciousness, and so they began to see love and sex as means of spiritual illumination. Ancient texts such as Ovid’s works on love (The Art of Love and The Cure of Love), which dealt with love’s transformative power, were read with new appreciation, but the empire was officially Christian, and so these ideas had to be fit into a more or less orthodox Christian framework.
"Bien sûr, il y a des femmes qui sont moins fortes que les hommes. Mais il y a aussi des hommes qui sont moins forts que les femmes. Tout le monde n’a pas les mêmes capacités physiques (ni mentales). Reste à savoir si ces capacités sont réellement inférieures chez les femmes, en raison de leur sexe."
"In the Bible: An angry mob shows up at the door of a man’s home demanding gay sex. Rather than sacrifice himself to the desires of the angry, horny mob, the man heroically offers to throw a woman to them instead."
"Ce qui fait la contrainte, c’est l’autorité, la domination physique, les menaces, le chantage affectif. On ne peut pas comprendre le viol si on ne comprend pas la sidération. Cette paralysie liée à la peur de mourir qui fait que, par exemple, une femme ne va pas mordre le sexe de l’homme lors d’une fellation imposée."
"A very consistent pattern was observed across all six countries we surveyed. The more decisions a woman reported making on her own, as compared to joint decision making, the less likely she was to have sex and the longer it was since she last had sexual intercourse."
"Barbara Lamb has hypnotically regressed almost 800 supposed UFO abductees. She has found that ETs enjoy having sex with earthlings, and not necessarily just in a saucer. Indeed, we heard much about some peoples’ fantasy sex lives involving these latter-day incubi and succubi. She has been researching the matter of ET-human “hybrids,” many of whom according to Lamb are already living amongst us. Indeed, she has interviewed some of them (many do not realize they are hybrids, and still think themselves human). Others embrace their ET heritage as a sort of badge of distinction."
"Some people are raised in a Catholic family. Some people are raised in a Jewish family. I was raised in an Orgonomy family. And despite Reich’s insistence to the contrary, Orgonomy is a religion, filled with sacred truths which can never be experimentally verified, a single central theme which tries to explain everything in the universe, a Fall from Grace in the mythical past, and even a Christ figure in Reich himself. I was forced to endure years of orgone therapy the way many other children are forced to go to church. I became a “convert” to Reich’s works in late puberty thanks primarily to his pro-sex attitude. I was a “true believer” until the late 1990s, when my skeptical instincts finally caught up with me, and I at last acknowledged the similarities between the writings of Reich and the ravings of various other cantankerous crackpots who were trying to hawk their own all-encompassing theories."
"Again she bought his £10 train ticket because he had no cash and said he didn’t want to use his credit card in case his movement was being tracked. He spent most of the 45-minute journey surfing the internet on his laptop, reading stories about himself and twittering or texting on his mobile phone. ‘He paid more attention to the computer than to me,’ she said bitterly."
"Les jupes, destinées à maintenir les femmes en état d’accessibilité sexuelle permanente, permettent de rendre les chutes (ou de simples attitudes physiques atypiques) plus pénibles pour l’amour-propre, et la dépendance mieux installée par la crainte qu’elles ne manquent pas d’entretenir insidieusement (on n’y pense pas clairement) sur le maintien de l’équilibre et les risques de la liberté motrice. L’attention à garder sur son propre corps est garantie, car il n’est nullement protégé mais au contraire offert par cette astucieuse pièce de vêtement, sorte de volant autour du sexe, fixé à la taille comme un abat-jour.” Colette Guillaumin, Sexe, race et pratique du pouvoir."
