Now that I have all of your attention…
So many of us out on this big floating bio ship, have created countless unhealthy distortions (some a bit more odd than others) about sex. If you believe in the 7 chakras of tantra and some other beliefs, then you are familiar with the Muladhara, the lowest chakra located at the base of the spine. Most people never manage to unlock all of their chakras because they get hung up on this first one, which Osho described as being made up of 3 separate parts; oral, anal, and genital. Our society is very skilled at getting people fixated on this Chakra, thus stunting their spiritual development.
What I wanted to ask was if anyone could shed any light on overcoming these fixations and restoring a healthy view of sex energy? Please mature answers only, unless you are really really really clever and funny. But seriously, I’d like to know what you all think on this.

@theskafish, hmm probably not, in this life. :) I don’t think I would be very comfortable doing it in public or watching someone. But that’s because of my perceptual lenses. I guess I do feel it’s a private thing as well, I’m kind of shy, but I don’t think it’s good to hide affection just because you’re out in public. For me it would definitely be more disturbing to see a violent act than a sexual one. But the principle is, showing violence is way too accepted. And this commodity-society’s sexual repression can lead to something destructive. Guilt and shame because of something natural. I would guess sex in itself isn’t all too harmful to see for a child, because it is as you say something beautiful. It depends. If the sex is happening for the right reasons. I think kids hurt more from watching repressed adults destroying each other. Media and advertising are seriously disturbing sometimes.
@theskafish, Do you fully understand sunlight, oxygen, and water?
So, by the logic you presented, these things should be hidden from you.
It’s hilarious how people hide the truth from kids, lie to them, fill their little heads with stories of falsehood… and then complain when somebody does this to them. “The system are telling us lies, they’re hiding the truth.” Hypocrites.
And yknow, these commoners did it to innocent children who didn’t know any better, their own damn children.
The “big baddies” do it to the people who have already done that to these innocent children, CONSIDER IT PAYBACK.
It’s been earned.
You don’t want to share, you want to keep it between you and your lady?
Well, that’s how a lot of people feel about money, knowledge, etc. If you don’t want to share things, don’t complain when others don’t want to share.
Sex is supposed to be beautiful? THAT is something the media has made up.
Sex is just an act of primal urges, for procreation. That’s all it is, it’s pretty damn ugly and nasty yknow.
That doesn’t mean it should be hidden.
Hell, sex in public being a crime, that’s a direct infringement on the freedom of expression/opinion. If you’re not allowed to show how you feel in public, then you don’t really have these rights.
Hiding things is ridiculous, and it dumbs people down.
And yknow, if people aren’t exposed to sex and violence in time, how will they be able to handle these things when it’s time?
This reminds me of a true story of a religious couple who wanted nothing more than to have kids. But the years went by, and they didn’t get any kids, they prayed and wished and asked God for help. They couldn’t understand why they couldn’t have kids when other people could.
Then one day the woman was talking to one of her friends about it, her friend said that maybe there’s something wrong “downstairs” and she should see a doctor about it.
The woman said that she couldn’t see a doctor due to her religion, and she asked what on earth the “downstairs” had to do with getting kids.
That’s right, she didn’t know that sex existed, let alone that it was required if you wanted kids. She grew up with only the religious people, telling her that genitals were bad and ought not be touched, they never told where babies come from, or about sex.
A person who values intelligence and truth does not ask for anything to be hidden.
(PS. Doing it in public is gnar, fucking awesome. Organic style)
There is a bunch of information on this site about what you’re talking about, and the need for you to trick people to read this post makes it clear that you enjoy public recognition regardless of substance
it needed to be said im sorrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry. I love you virtual wo/man
that funny nuff for ya?
@manimal, well, i understand stuff like sunlight, oxygen, and water enough that I have a reasonable idea that there’s a correlation between me having access to them and staying alive, and i’m not really hindered by anything that i don’t understand about them.
but i don’t think kids understand things like sex and violence. for instance, i don’t think a really young child would understand the difference between shooting someone and them being dead forever, and shooting someone fully expecting them to come back the next day, sans one life. and i certainly don’t expect a child to understand the ripples of pain set in motion from that action.
getting back on the topic of sex, again, i don’t think it’s something children could fully understand. i didn’t have any idea how i came into being for the longest time. but don’t you think that when the time is right, you figure it out? are we not born with sex instinct, like other animals, which turns on when we reach sexual maturity? that’s why i don’t understand your story….at some point, unless the lady was asexual, i’m sure she could just “feel” what to do, instinctively. just like breathing is automatic.
it’s debatable whether money should be shared, i’ll give you that (money doesnt matter anyway, its the stuff you get with money etc). but knowledge i think should be available….IF a person can use it well.
also, we’ve agreed that porn is a detractor, in the past…..how does sex in public not function more or less the same as porn, due to people’s automatic sex drives?
@iflookscouldkill, what do you mean by ‘unlocking’ chakras and getting ‘hung up’ on the muladhara chakra.
The sex is the yellow or the red? I get confused by sex and base chakra.
I agree that most society as a whole has a very immature attitude towards sex. The fact that its a societal taboo to walk around naked naked in public, censorship of sexual organs exists on tv. The existence of the term ‘private parts’.
Sex is both forbidden and exploited. Its a thing of great value that has been held back but cheapened. Advertizers use sex to sell things. Politicians and celebrities use sex to tar and feather others or to glorify themselves.
i think you guys are off topic
for me the chakras, raising the kundalini during sex is possible during the sacred act with someone who is experienced in this sort of tantric practice. with correct breathing and meditation and clear view one can realize an incredible bliss state.
this can of course be accomplished alone in mediation as well but doing it with a loved one really can be an incredible blissful experience.
most people do not understand this and sex is just for fun, fucking. that is.
or for procreation.
the bliss im referring to however wonderful is however not to be confused with enlightenment.
@cognizantelephant, Tricking people? The title of the post accurately fits its content. My question is sincere and i came here because I thought the community could shed some light on a subject that genuinely baffles me. So if you are not going to contribute and want to project your insecurities on someone, this post isn’t for you.
@d503, By unlocking chakras, I mean tantra teachings that one must free all seven of their chakras to realize the point of total nirvana. Basically a series of stages one MAY take if one chooses. I am aware that many people assign colors to the chakras, but personally I have never done that, it feels like extra fluff for me. What I mean by gettin hung up is that if you focus to much on one aspect of it, you stop moving forward.
Basically, my question is How does one go about removing unhealthy views of sex to reach the point where it’s pure ness can be fully experienced?
Violence is practiced in broad daylight, but we can’t make love in public. Which is fucked up (pun intended). Violence = sense of danger = sexual thrill. But sexual thrill without a release becomes “forbidden”, and therefore repressed and enhanced and destructive. We are being fed with violence and withheld from what already belongs to us, sex is being commodified and thus cracked up to be glorified and more important than it really is. And that’s how money is made out of victimizin’ people. If our surroundings were less tinted with death and saturated sex, maybe the chakras would balance almost by themselves?
@ARCANUS, would you really want to make love in public though, even if it were legal? One, I don’t think children should see it any more than they should see violence, because they are so young that they don’t fully understand either of these things. And two, it’s not something I want to share with anyone else, I’d want to keep the experience just between me and my lady.
On a separate thought, I really wish the media didn’t portray sex the way they do, it takes something that’s supposed to be nice and makes it cheap and crass. It’s supposed to be beautiful, but the media makes it seem like belching, or something like that. Ach, maybe I’m already turning into an old man. I don’t know.
