Sex Meditation ebook by Alvin AvalonFor two thousand years, Tibetan Buddhists have sought spiritual enlightenment by meditating on images of deities copulating with one another. In the Kundalini Yoga of India, meditation is used to sublimate internal sexual energies and achieve a state of supreme bliss. But sex meditation isn’t just about mysticism. By concentrating deeply on a single thought or image, while remaining physically calm and serene, you can learn to achieve extreme states of sexual arousal and earth-shatteringly intense orgasms. You can enter vivid and sensuous worlds of the mind that make ordinary masturbation fantasies pale by comparison. With practice, you can even develop extra-sensory powers that allow you to tap into the sexual thoughts and activities of friends, colleagues and strangers. This short illustrated book tells you everything you need to know about the theory and practice of sex meditation, including plenty of step-by-step exercises that you can try out for yourself!

The demon Pazuzu depicted with an erect penis (ithyphallic)Ithyphallic is a word meaning “with an erect penis”, but it is normally only used in the context of artistic representations of gods and demons. In the Christian world, the Devil is often depicted in ithyphallic form, particularly in images dating from the Middle Ages. A number of ancient Egyptian gods are also depicted in this way, most notably Min-Amun. In Graeco-Roman mythology the most common ithyphallic gods are Pan and Priapus. The popular Hindu God Shiva is often depicted in ithyphallic form, as were the ancient pagan gods Baal and Moloch. The image depicts one of the less familiar ithyphallic figures: the Babylonian demon Pazuzu.

Intercourse with the Devil

Sexual intercourse with the DevilAt the height of the Puritan era in the 17th century, belief in the Devil was widespread and completely literal. For most people, Satan was a symbol of evil to be feared and avoided, but there were those who believed they could attain earthly power by seeking out his company and engaging in sexual intercourse with him. A young French woman named Jeannette d’Abadie described the Devil as a large man with horns and a tail, and the most massive penis she had ever seen. It was almost a metre in length, covered in scales and cold to the touch. Copulating with the Lord of Hell was as painful as childbirth, but infinitely more satisfying than sex with a human male. When the Devil ejaculated inside her, Jeannette said that his semen was as cold as ice.

A few years later, a native of the Scottish Highlands named Isobel Gowdie echoed many of the same sentiments as Jeannette d’Abadie. She said the Devil was as heavy as a malt sack and endowed with a huge, icy cold phallus, and that when it came to sexual intercourse “he is abler for us that way than any man can be”.

Erotic Indian Temple Sculptures

Erotic sculpture at the Lakshmana temple in KhajurahoThe photograph depicts one of the many explicitly sexual carvings that can be seen on the walls of the Lakshmana Temple at Khajuraho in central India. This is one of several Hindu temples at the Khajuraho complex, dating from about a thousand years ago, that are decorated with erotic sculptures of this type. They are often described as a “Kama Sutra in stone”, but this is an understatement. The Kama Sutra is predominantly concerned with monogamous, heterosexual intercourse performed by married couples in the  privacy of their own homes. The Khajuraho sculptures, on the other hand, depict orgiastic scenes of group sex such as the one seen here. Given their location on a temple, it is likely that they refer to religious rituals rather than purely sensual or hedonistic activities.

Salome and the cult of John the Baptist

Karita Mattila as Salome performing the Dance of the Seven VeilsAccording to the Bible, Salome was a young woman who demanded the execution of John the Baptist after performing a seductive dance for her stepfather, Herod Antipas. In the Richard Strauss opera Salome (1905) the dance is performed as a striptease called the Dance of the Seven Veils. The picture shows a performance by the Finnish soprano Karita Mattila.

Although generally thought of as a Christian saint, John the Baptist developed a pagan cult following of his own, called Mandaeism. The Mandaeans believed sex was the holiest mystery of life, and conducted sexual rituals called Zubia in their temples.

Homosexuality in the Mystic East

Old Indian print depicting homosexual kamasutra-style sexThe sacred sex rituals performed in places like India, Tibet, Thailand and Japan were as likely to be homosexual as heterosexual. In the enlightened, non-materialistic culture of these countries the issue of sexual orientation was seen as irrelevant when it came to the mystical applications of sex. Francis Xavier, a Christian missionary who visited Japan in the 16th century, was shocked to find Buddhist monks openly indulging in gay sex: “We frequently tell the monks that they should not commit such shameful sins, and everything that we tell them amuses them since they laugh about it and have no shame when they are reproached about so vile a sin. These monks have many young men in their monasteries, sons of nobility whom they teach how to read and write, and they commit their corruptions with them; and this sin is so common that they are not upset by it.”
