New Tingles from an Odd Altered State

July 27, 2015
I thought I’d heard of every route to an altered state, every alternative technology. Being married to a psychologist who specializes in clinical hypnosis and writing a novel about kundalini would seem a pretty good start. But I’ve just run across a new method…or at least new to me. It’s called ASMR; it reportedly can […] Read More

Why I Love Celebrity Gossip

July 15, 2015
…And why bring this up on a blog that supposedly deals with the intersection of sex and spirituality? Here’s the reason: If a person shows interest in royal babies or movie star divorces or Olympic decathlete gender identity, he or she is likely to be scorned for engaging in “celebrity worship.” It isn’t worship. Got […] Read More

Body Mind Spirit Art

July 8, 2015
There ought to be a word or term for it. For art that brings together sexuality and spirituality, the carnal and the religious, the sensual and the ethereal. There isn’t one. Maybe if there were a name for it, there would be more of it. And those of us interested in this topic would know […] Read More

The Mermaid Update

June 30, 2015
Much interesting response to the post last week about whether to wear the pin showing mermaid and merman in an intimate moment. A gentleman from Turkey contacted me privately with a thoughtful argument against wearing it: because things have more spiritual value if they are not public and available. I gave this some thought. He […] Read More

What Would Dr Ruth Do?

June 24, 2015
A few years ago, I bought a pin at a street fair for a couple of bucks. It’s the image of a mermaid and a merman in heated embrace. I think it’s kinda cool — not too terribly tacky. Wouldn’t put it on my skirt suit lapel the day I announced for president; but still, […] Read More

Redeeming Sex

June 5, 2015
Tantalizing title, since it can be read as sex-leading-to-redemption or the-restoring-of-value-to-sex. As it turns out Redeeming Sex, released in the last month, is mainly about how Christian churches need to value sexual diversity. This seems to me so thunderously obvious, simple, right, and long over-due that it was other bits and pieces of this hot-selling […] Read More

More and More Books on Sex and Spirituality

May 29, 2015
New nonfiction about the intertwining of sex and spirituality seems to be coming out at an ever-increasing pace. And some of these books, I’m happy to see, are by religious leaders. Two of the writers who’ve been steady on the subject for a number of years are David Deida,, author of Finding God Through Sex […] Read More

Self-Absorbed and Spiritually Seeking

May 19, 2015
Sometimes I get tired of myself. I start to feel that “I” am sealed in the Tupperware-like container of a “self” that is low-ceilinged and narrow. And here’s the worst of it: I fear I fit the damn Tupperware perfectly and don’t even feel especially guilty about being such a self-absorbed limited creature. However, I […] Read More
