The Joy of Oral Sex, Raw Oysters and Mayonnaise

When I was a young 18-year-old man, I met a mature woman, 30 or so, who described the sensuous love of sensuous acts of love.

If these are treated as mechanical acts then they are just as enjoyable as repairing a John Deer tractor, and similar necessary and not terrible mechanical chores.

Making love with such a mechanical person is as unpleasant as screwing a lawyer, or worse, an engineer.

Why? Because of a lack of empathy, a disability to focus on another’s pleasure and to derive pleasure from it.

No one wants to be treated like a chore existing only for another’s mechanical use. Screwing, is a mechanical term, after all. porn versus Eroticism, advertising versus Fine Art.

Civilization at its best is both erotic and sensuous.

John the Baptist was against all this of course:

Masochistic self-sacrifice is an integral part of almost all organized religions: as shown, for example, in the various forms of ritualistic self-deprivation that Jews, Christians, Mohammedans, and other religionists must continually undergo if they are to keep in good with their assumed gods. Masochism, indeed, stems from an individual deliberately inflicting pain on himself in order that he may guiltlessly permit himself to experience some kind of sexual or other pleasure; and the very essence of most organized religions is the performance of masochistic, guilt-soothing rituals, by which the religious individual gives himself permission to enjoy life. — Albert Ellis
