Love and Ecstasy:
Ending False Scarcity


There is a sense of wholeness that comes through merging ecstatic body pleasures with loving human connection. With caring erotic exchanges, we can generate an embodied experience of linking soul and universe through our genitals. Many people have transcendent sexual experiences once in a lifetime, or early in an erotic relationship. But I know they need not be so rare. Through the erotic we have a techne of profound joy - an art and craft through which we can directly apprehend, breathe, embody and share a numinous reality where we feel at one, at peace, and fully alive. Learning to practice this techne of joy involves building our inner capacities. We build trust in our ability to feel fully and deeply, in both the realm of contentment and the realm of excitement.
     Learning to practice the techne of joy also involves building a world of relationships that can hold this. People learn, heal, explore and experience ecstasy in the context of relationships. Caring relationship and connected touch generate neurochemicals that help us feel peaceful, excited, euphoric, and fully alive. If we add safe experiments with novelty into the mix, we can access even more of our nervous systems’ ability to experience ecstasy. Loving relationships that welcome challenge and excitement are the context for evolving a personal and social capacity for joy.
     I am not suggesting we all need romantic love for that one special person. I think there is a false scarcity around love just as there is a false scarcity around sexual ecstasy. Part of the personal and cultural reconnection with sex involves imagining new forms of loving sexual relationship and creating new avenues for erotic expression - caring sexual connections that do not require romantic relationships. We can create erotic friendships, commission erotic service providers, dream and build erotic community.
