"If both men and women masturbate more, they can bring more harmony to how they see the World."
Above are a marvelous comment and picture sent to me by a young man from Sweden. I am intrigued by the masturbation-harmony link. So just how might masturbation lead to greater harmony in how we see the World?
I believe that masturbation, like paired sexual acts, aligns me with my Eros, or erotic self: a highly pleasurable state reached via the action of sexual/creative energy on my body and mind producing feelings of bliss and love in its unconditional form. The sexual energy generated from masturbation vitalizes all the major systems in my body ultimately impacting how I feel, view, and interact with the World. Masturbation helps cultivate in me a passionate, intense desire for life and an appreciation of beauty in its diverse forms.
Masturbation is a pathway of self-discovery enabling me to love myself for who I am and who I can be. My self-love nurtures my gift to love as a spouse, father, son, brother, friend, teacher, and artist. I rejoice in the pleasure and joy from being fully alive.
In the picture I see a sage invigorated by his sexuality and projecting vibrant color and beauty in an otherwise drab and austere landscape. His erotic nature animates his experience of being a fulfilled, whole being. I would love to see this picture, some produced with vulvas, others with both sex organs; appear as billboards along the world’s major thoroughfares. This would serve as a reminder that a masturbating populace embraces and projects love, beauty, acceptance, harmony, and happiness.
One of the tenets from the About Us page on D&R states this concept beautifully and could serve as the billboard caption:
“Sexual pleasure and orgasm is the source of life and creativity. As we awaken our bodies through the senses, we awaken our minds to the knowledge that we are all related and connected to every living thing on planet Earth and throughout the vast universe.”
Harmony fulfilled. Imagine.
