"Most moral philosophers … assume the essential correctness of our cultural sexual code — family, monogamy, continence, the postulate of privacy… etcetera. Having stipulated our cultural code as a whole … they debate how the human animal can be induced or forced to obey this code, blandly ignoring the high probability that the heartaches and tragedies they see all around them originate in the code itself rather than the failure to abide by the code.."

physical intimacy

The physical realm is (probably) the latest creation in god's ongoing program of self-exploration. This does not mean that it is somehow baser or lower than other realms. The newest construction is more likely the cutting edge of divine creativity, and thus, of equal — if not greater — importance in the holy scheme of things.

As residents of the physical realm, we spirits are part of the creator’s advance research and discovery team, exploring the possibilities inherent in the material world. Ideally, this effort is undertaken with a playful attitude, unencumbered by fear or shame.

Unfortunately, some of us, who cannot resist the mammalian instinct to try and control the lives of others, have discovered that fear and shame are effective tools for manipulation. Thus, tyrants and would-be tyrants, in the guise of priests and politicians, continue to claim that our god-given bodies are tainted, our actions unnatural, and our thoughts shameful.

You can safely ignore such claims. Our physical bodies are as holy as any other part of the universal matrix.

Therefore, one of the objectives of Rational Spiritism is to promote healthy, playful, more satisfying physical intimacy among all people. To that end, we recommend the info provided here.

"Ultimately, of course, the case for sexual freedom is the same as the case for any other kind of freedom — political, social, or religious: liberty releases and fulfills human potentialities, while restriction cramps and distorts them."  — Dr. Roger W. Wescott, Ph.D.
