Orgies de la Secte SodoOrgies de la Secte Sodo (Orgies of the Sect of Sodo) is a French art-house film from 1984. The story concerns a young woman who, after experiencing psychological problems stemming from sexual repression, is referred to a private institution for liberated adults known as the “Sect of Sodo”. She wanders from room to room, witnessing a range of erotic couplings including male-on-male, group sex and BDSM. She then allows herself to be initiated into the sect by one of the High Priests, after which she is ready to participate in an uninhibited group ritual with multiple male and female partners.

The film celebrates the spiritual liberation that a woman can achieve by freeing herself from the sexual fetters imposed by conventional society.

Trenecito circle sex ritual

The Sanskrit term Chakra Puja refers to a sex ritual undertaken by a group of participants. The word Chakra literally means “wheel”, and the ritual takes the form of a circle in which sexual energy is transmitted from one participant to the next.

The picture above shows a group of men engaged in a circular sex ritual. This particular ritual is known as Trenecito.

Taoist Sex: two dancing phoenixes

Shunga print of the two dancing phoenixes sex positionTaoist Sex is the ancient Chinese equivalent of Tantric Sex. But whereas Tantra is the Way of the Goddess, Taoist Sex is focused more on enhancing the health and longevity of the male participant. While the sexual positions of the Kama Sutra are designed to heighten and prolong the pleasures of the female , their Taoist equivalents are aimed more at the pleasure of the male. This is particularly apparent in the position illustrated here (in a Japanese shunga print of the late eighteenth century), in which a man is copulating simultaneously with two female partners. In this position, called “two dancing phoenixes”, one female lies on top of the other, both spreading their legs so that their vaginas (referred to in Taoism as “yin gates”) are easily accessible to alternate thrusts of the man’s erect penis (“yang spear”).

Bacchanal: a frenzied sex ritual

Bacchanal by Auguste LevequeThe Bacchanal was a religious rite associated with worship of the Roman God Bacchus, also known by the Greek name of Dionysus. Bacchus is often euphemistically referred to as the “God of Wine”, which makes him sound genteel and sophisticated, but in fact he was the God of drunkenness, self-indulgence and decadent sexuality. Accordingly, the Bacchanal took the form of an uninhibited, drunken orgy. The Roman historian Livy wrote that “More uncleanness was committed by men with men than with women. To regard nothing as impious or criminal was the sum total of their religion.”

Over the years, many artists have chosen to depict Bacchanalian revels in their paintings. The one shown here is the work of the Belgian painter Auguste Levêque.

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.
