Temper-Tantrum (the day after) Tuesday: Sex

It’s funny how things work sometimes. I had the idea for this post on Monday, Tuesday morning I ran across a news story that dovetailed it nicely. I opened up Word to write it up and I got a call from work asking me to pull a 10-hour shift. So here is my Temper-Tantrum on Sex a day late.

Sex and the Reason People hate it:

At the Value Voters summit Sen. Tom Coburn's (R-Okla.) Chief of Staff: “All Pornography Is Homosexual Pornography."
"Now, think about that," he said. "And if you tell an 11-year-old boy about that, do you think he's going to want to get a copy of Playboy? I'm pretty sure he’ll lose interest. That's the last thing he wants! You know, that's a good comment, it’s a good point, and it's a good thing to teach young people."

Setting aside the shear stupidity of a saying looking at naked chicks will turn a boy gay, why is it that Republicans (and most tyrants through history) think sex is a bad thing?

George Orwell said in his book 1984 that ‘the sex instinct creates a world of it's own’ out of the Government’s control and therefore must be destroyed.

Sex causes problems for control freaks in Government is two ways:

First in couples, couples that have sex regularly tend to be happier together (no duh) not just because of the mutual satisfaction of boning, but because it is a shared activity. If a couple starts to drift apart but they have to get back to together 3 or 4 times a week to get off, that’s 3 or 4 times a week they have to be together and remember what they love about the each other.

If you constantly have to think about someone’s good qualities, it’s tough to hold the little irritants against them. This makes people in relationships respect each other. This leads to holding their views in higher esteem than authority figures.

If that authority is based on lies, it is tougher to sell those lies to two people than one. As one person might let something they know is false slide by the first time they hear it, the second time they hear it, it reminds them of the first time, by the third time they just accept it because they’ve heard it before.

If someone you respect says “that’s bullshit” at a lie, every time you hear it you’ll remember they think its bullshit and in order for you to accept it, you’ll actually have to research it, not just blindly accept it.

If people only accept facts they can verify, they have no reason to watch Fox News.

That’s why people who want the authorities to control the people’s actions try to push the idea that sex is the worst, most disgusting thing you can do to someone and you should only do it to someone you love.

If you think of sex as a “wifely duty” or worse as only a means to procreation, as opposed to a mutual activity that fucking rocks. Then instead of thinking about not having sex as denying your partner pleasure, and of course yourself, you are sparing your partner the unpleasant task of having to orgasm.

This makes it so when couples start drifting apart (over the decades it happens to all couples) they don’t have that common pleasurable activity to bring them back together.

The ideal state of marriage for the tyrant would be to have all couples hate each other, that way no lie would be checked and the peasant would hear no dissenting voices.

So if you are in a relationship strike a blow against tyranny. Go down on your partner, today. Remember orgasms are the best way to defeat tyranny.

The second way sex is a problem for the tyrant is they lose control of people’s emotions.

The easiest for a tyrant to control the masses is by fear, mostly fear of others. The tyrant will tell you only they can protect you against “the scary others”. They want you to lock yourself into home afraid to go outside, afraid of all other human beings.

Sex (for single people) destroys this fear. First it isn’t as fun alone, even if your doing it alone it’s a lot more fun if someone watches. So you actually have to leave your house and interact with other people. Whenever you interact with other people you find out that 98% of them aren’t monsters, just people with needs and desires just like you.

Then when you get down to having sex, you actually have to be vulnerable and trust another human being. (Or two or three, depending on your tastes).

When you find you can be your most vulnerable to someone you met an hour or so (or 5 minutes) earlier, and they don’t hurt your insecurities and respect your boundaries then it is hard to believe every stranger is out to get you.

By making people fear sex the tyrant accomplishes makes people fear others in two ways, they limit the very personal contact someone has with other human beings, and they reinforce the fear of others by making people have their worst fears come through.

If you go out to meet other people (we are social animals that desire can’t be stopped) but aren’t planning on having sex, then you haven’t thought about where your boundaries are. When the endorphins kick in you find yourself unable think about where the line is until its been crossed and you find yourself naked with a pineapple up your butt as the crowd cheers your partner on. Having your boundaries crossed like that can put you off sex for a week.

As an example, I knew a girl in college who was a devote Fundamentalist, sex before marriage is a sin and all that. Until she got drunk, after a few drinks she would be naked in the hall having unprotected three-ways with whatever two guys were closest while the rest of the dorm watched.

The next morning she would talk about the sins of alcohol that forces people to do things against their will. Needless to say she never had to pay for her own drinks and she would be talked into having “just one drink” about every other week.

If she wasn’t convinced she wasn’t going to get laid when she drank, she would think to carry around some condoms at the very least and learn to enjoy her drunken fucks.

The point is when you think about sex as a positive thing, you have to start thinking about other people in a positive way. When you think of other people in a positive way, you no longer fear them, and without the fear of others the tyrant is powerless.
