  •  sexual repression and power (1+ / 0-)

    quoting myself:

    I like the sex on the wrong brain (sexonthewrongbrain.org) interpretation of fear and its use in power and politics for thousands of years.

    That theory proposes that the need for certainty, or the need to avoid uncertainty, is exacerbated when sex energy goes to the left logical/mathematical side of the brain instead of the right orgasmic/creative side- where it was supposed to go. The left side likes the powerful sex energy and will trap it there.

    Unfortunately, sex energy brings with it the need for satisfaction and logic is supposed to be patient and objective. The closest thing to satisfaction for logic is finality. It wants the thinking to end. It wants certainty. It wants the order and predictability that brings certainty. But nature surrounds us with never ending uncertainty and the stronger the need for certainty the easier that uncertainty turns into fear.

    Since little or nothing is certain, it has to be created. To satisfy that need for certainty, logic partners with creativity to make up or rationalize quick easy answers that can ease the uncertainty and fear.

    When logic opens the gate to the creative side to let in the easy answers some of the sex energy finally escapes and has its way in the pleasure centers of the right side. That is the pleasure of certitude.

    So stupid feels good and the uncertainty and fear is relieved. Certainty becomes more important than truth. As long as sex on the wrong brain rules, those with the royal authoritarian certitude will have power and followers needing their certitude and easy answers.

    The uncertainty/certainty power dynamic has dominated Earth since humans became 'civilized'. That's when reproduction needed to be delayed and serious masturbation began. Without sex education the default hand is the sword and hammer hand, the right hand, which is connected to the logical side of the brain.

    That's why sexual repression is the primary goal, by design or default, of all traditional power structures- so that we don't talk about which hand to use.

    The Koran goes so far as to mention it- 'man can only have sex with his wife and that which the right hand possesses'. Since the poor couldn't afford to possess slaves and captives or to get married there was only one interpretation remaining for 'what the right hand possesses'. And the paternalistic warrior classes perpetuate, fighting over who's certainty is better, 'dominating' females, for whom the right hand is not necessarily the default hand.
