I am willing to bet that at times in our distant past cum was treated not as an object of embarrassment or shame but of worship. After all, it is the stuff of vitality and creation, and we feel this with every orgasm. Yet for way too much of human history, the idea of not using cum for procreation has been condemned. Well, the time for waking up the planet is long overdue, and with over 7 billion of us mother earth is showing signs of collapse.
Evolutionary anthropologists have noted societies in which homosexual relationships were crucial factors in building social cohesion. Who knows, maybe even in Cro-Magnon times people worshipped cum as a sacred gift from the gods. For me, everything about sharing orgasm has the feel of a sacred rite – from building up feelings of excitement and pleasure to the magical release when every atom in our bodies is tingling with life.
Isn’t it interesting that we so often use the word release to describe an orgasm. For the most part, release is used in the sense of letting go, or of relieving tension. There is, however, another aspect to it which has to do with opening ourselves to energy stored deep within our bodies – an energy that needs to be cultivated and brought to the surface. One of the wonders of orgasm is not just the build up and spewing of cum but of the ripple effect as the energy continues to flow through every cell of our bodies. If this isn’t what creation is about, then I have no idea what is.
As I noted in my pervious post, The Moment After, all too often we stop short of truly enjoying the full effects of orgasm, the ripple effects. Just when we are ripe to reap these rewards, shame and guilt jump in. But, we don’t have to let them in the door, I don’t mind kicking unwelcome guests out of the house. There’s enough negative energy around without the vampires of negativity. Cum has life enhancing powers that should be enjoyed by all of our senses, with the exception of getting squirted in the eyes! Instead of a quick run to the shower, next time linger a bit with your buddy, take in the euphoria of erotic energy. Let it enliven your bodies. Let the sight, taste, smell, and feel of cum, along with the sounds of your bodies relishing it stay with you. These are sacred times that we should be giving to the ones we want to experience them with. If the fear mongers try to barge in, close the door for they have no place in this space.
