A “Higher Purpose” for Men and Women

February 25, 2012

(This will be the “Author’s Note” in The Alchemy of Erotic Love… for Guys.)

kissing  When it comes to women, men are taught to view them as either “brood cows” or “Pleasure Palaces.”  It wasn’t always this way.  We are taught to penetrate them as we did the enemy long ago, with sword and spear from behind a shield.  Even the word, vagina, means “scabbard” or “sheath” in Latin.  The bedroom is not a battlefield!  We treat them as a glass of beer, sipping only the frothy head, leaving the delicious nectar beneath to go flat and stale.  We do this at our own peril!

Join me as we look at woman without the perfumed blinders of pleasure and/or procreation.  We will look at her scientifically through the magnifying lens of love.  This lens is not the mushy gushy stuff of chick flicks, rather the lens that focuses the sun’s energy on us to ignite the creative flames of men’s souls.

I will not lead you down some primrose path of ethereal foo-foo talk.  I have been there and they all dead-end for me.  I wanted hard-core answers!  However, science hasn’t been there yet.  The flame in me can only suggest what science might find when they get there.  If my scientific speculation on what might be going on in the human body is wrong, it doesn’t make any difference.  The results are there, if you want them.

Many Gurus will tell you, ”I am right.  Believe me.”  I won’t.  As the old saying goes, “The proof of the pudding is in the tasting.”  Don’t believe me!  Try it for yourself.  Only when you have the results, will you believe me, and my speculative mechanisms still could be wrong.  I don’t think so, but it makes no difference.  The results are there, if you want them.

Oh, yes.  Our higher purpose?  To love and be loved.  That simple!

The Messenger.

January 25, 2012

I would ask, “Who the hell is this guy trying to teach us something about sex and love?”  Then I would answer I have no academic credentials in this field.  My Batchelor’s degree is in Ocean Engineering and my Master’s is in Business.  I am a teacher, once holding the academic rank of Associate Professor.  But, I have something better.  Experience!

Experience by itself is of no value until it is analyzed.  So, I went to the best in the business of sexual science, Dr. Beverly Whipple, and started asking questions.  With my academic background, I was able to understand much of what I read.  I received answers and leads.  My experience went far beyond the state of sexual science today.  My questions started with female ejaculation.  Most of Dr. Whipple’s work was around Neurophysiology with a more scientific focus on orgasm and female ejaculation from the prostate.  I knew there was more.

In the past couple of years, there are scientific papers on orgasmic discharge from the urinary bladder (not urine) and from the vagina.  My experience was finally validated by science.  “But wait,” as Billy Mays used to say.  “There’s more!”

I had also experienced a form of Transcendent sex and orgasmic bioluminescence.  Through other leads, I found information on these subjects as well.  I also read material on sexual practices of the occult, sexual archeology and anthropology, sexual history and politics, and culled a little information on love.  Not much information on love, but there are clues.

Over the years, Dr. Whipple and I have become friends.  We can tease each other, but she allows me to get away with nothing!  On a recent visit I was telling her that transcendent sex was altered brain chemistry.  She asked, “Which part of the brain?”  Were science-speak more a part of my vocabulary I would have responded, “It’s idiopathic.”  But, I just said, “Duh! I dunno.”  On reflection, I wrote her and said I guess it depends on the form of transcendence.

A few things I have learned from or through her are:

  1. There are 3.5 billion women on this planet and they are all different, to one degree or another.  So are we.
  2. There is a lot more to sex than the Big O.
  3.  Sexual intercourse is not necessary to get any of the sexual responses, including the Big O.
  4. We’ve all been conned out of sexual love, and
  5. Perhaps most important, all of the “experts” including me, come from their own agenda, based on their experience and the lies they’ve been told over the centuries.  So do the rest of us.

Some of the “conclusions” at which I arrive, are simply my own thoughts on the subject: conjecture and speculation.  But I tell you.  And, like others, I pick and choose the science that validates my experience, but I try and let you know varying opinions.  For example, love is defined as a “feeling.”  I find the definition limiting.  Feelings come from brain chemistry due to certain genes being activated, or expressed.  I look at love as a form of energy all about us, which we can allow, or disallow, to express, or not express those genes.  If it is a feeling, then we are responsible for that feeling.  If it is energy, then we are only responsible for allowing it!

Why don’t we allow it?  Brainwashing!  Centuries of brainwashing.  I’ve traced some of it and quite frankly it pisses me off!  We’ve been inculcated to live under a sexual paradigm of pleasure and/or procreation.  I tell you from experience, there is a third “P:” power.  Napoleon Hill called it “access to infinite intelligence.”  My speculation (see what I mean?) is when sex is coupled with love, and the focus of the act is on giving and receiving love, rather than pleasure, we become empowered!  I again speculate that these energies express new, or modify old, genes, altering our brain chemistry positively.

Before I learned a lot of this, I wrote The Sacred Female, my first novel.  I wanted to share the experiences so that others might also share them with their beloved and become far more empowered than I.  Now I share the mechanisms, and possible mechanisms that create this experience and the power.

I am just a messenger.

On Circumcision

December 15, 2011

 Let me start by saying misogyny is not about putting women down, it is about keeping men down!  And men bit into it hook, line and sinker!

 To figure all this out, I take a bio-energetic view of sex.  Let’s face it.  During sexual intercourse, we are stimulating nerve endings to create electrochemical energy.  This energy expresses genes that give us the sensation of pleasure and OTHER SEXUAL RESPONSES, by altering our brain chemistry.  Transcendence, in its many forms, is one of these responses.  Transcendence is defined as “altered brain chemistry.”

 Now, let’s add a little salt to the bland stew of sex.  (Yeah, it’s bland by comparison.)  Let’s add love.  Can love express genes to alter our brain chemistry and transform us into “super human” beings?  Sounds like something out of fantasy.  Worse yet, just a bunch of romantic BS.  Unfortunately history, both modern and ancient, tells us otherwise.

 Circumcision is an operation that removes 50% of our penile skin tissue and 50% of the nerve endings attached to our pudendal nerve.  The operation leaves scar tissue that can become painful after orgasmic ejaculation.  How many of us guys have said, “Stop!  Stop!  Don’t move!  Don’t move! Oh God?” Yeah, it’s painful.

 Some girls say the same thing, but for a different reason.  Some during the onset of orgasm have the “urge to void,” as Masters and Johnson said.  Some don’t.  They don’t know that this urge may precede their orgasmic discharge, either from the urinary bladder or prostate or both, and they think they are going to pee on you.  The bladder discharge is also called Amrita (“The Nectar of the Goddess,” believed to give immortality) and is not urinary stress incontinence.  So, they tell you to stop.

 Compared to women, guys don’t have anywhere near the number of sexual nerve endings.  The penis is our main stick!  And then they cut off half the nerve endings!  They diminish our capacity to create electrochemical energy!  Bastards!  The good news is it didn’t work.  All we gotta do is add a little more love.

 I’ve heard the excuses.  “Covenant with God.”  “Cleanliness.”  If God didn’t want us to have a foreskin, He wouldn’t have given us one, and did you ever hear of soap and water?  Skin it back and wash it!

 I’ve also heard women say, “Ouuh!  Yuck!  Uncircumcised?  Yuck!”  Well, ladies, if men in their infancy had not had this MALE genital mutilation forced upon them, you wouldn’t know the difference!

 Now, take a look at this video.  It is just Dr. Ken McGrath in Australia talking about it.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=DD2yW7AaZFw  Consider it, then add some more love.  Just let it flow through you.

Three Jewels in the Crown of Female Orgasm

December 10, 2011

 I have known, observed and experienced things long before there were studied by science.  Many still have no scientific validation.  They are “bracelets” and “necklaces.”  But now I have science for these three, which I view as a gift of love.

 In 1999, Zaviacic wrote, The Human Female Prostate[1], essentially describing its function the same as the male prostate: ejaculation of about 5 ml +/- of prostatic fluid on orgasm.  Although Galen, around 200 AD said the same thing and Reginer de Graff, in 1660 also described and sketched it.  De Graff also noted his female patients described this as more pleasurable… in 1660!

 In the very near future, Emmanuele Jannini[2], will have a paper published in J. Sex. Med regarding orgasmic discharge from the urinary bladder that IS NOT URINE!  In his one subject, there was 127 ml (1/2 cup) of fluid discharged.  I have seen, but not measured, apparently greater quantities. In Tantric Sex, both act and fluid are called Amitra.  Many women were told this was “urinary stress incontinence.”  Not true!  There is less that ½ the concentration of urea in the fluid from baseline urine studies of the subject.  I would imagine this would decrease on subsequent orgasms.  (You don’t stop at one, do you?)

 Finally, there is a ring of glands inside the vagina, just in back of the hymeneal area (where the hymen used to be) that also quickly secrete a fluid.  In Uganda, this is called, “spraying the walls.” This was presented by Dr. I. Goldstein[3] at the AASECT convention last year and is also in the J. Sex Med.  I don’t have a copy yet and will update this blog when it comes in.

 Jannini noted prostatic ejaculation followed the bladder discharge.  Sherri Winston[4] told me in some women, vaginal discharge followed this.  I do not know if there is a “set” order for this, but I do know ejaculation can occur independently.  I wonder if Master’s and Johnson’s “urge to void” preceding orgasm was a precursor to bladder discharge or ejaculation or both?  Probably, “yes, depending.”  If you have the “urge,” let it go!  You’ll enjoy it!

Joyful Bioluminescence

November 11, 2011

ArtNobleFireflies Who am I?

I am a man blessed by knowing some fantastic women in my life and cursed with curiosity.  When I say, “knowing” I mean both in the Biblical sense and over the Internet.  The original title of this piece was “Orgasmic Bioluminescence.”  Because I observed it on orgasm as did the people I contacted or who contacted me to validate this experience. I quote two of them on the back cover of The Sacred Female.  A woman in Arkansas told me when she wanted to glow, she’d call a certain fellow in town, he’d come up the mountain, they would get it on, she would glow and that was it.

BUT, a woman recently shared with me she glowed while singing “And the Glory” in a chorus performing The Messiah.  Additionally, she was carrying a “bundle of joy” in her belly at the time.  Afterward, people asked her why the spot light was on her during that song and she had no idea what they were talking about!  The good news is it is not just about sex! And, we can be joyful in being with our beloved.

So what is it?

Bioluminescence is the opposite of photosynthesis.  You know, the process that takes light to activate chlorophyll in leaves to turn them green.  We also use light energy to run our bodies.  Sunshine is a “natural” Vitamin D.  Not really.  We take on the photons (light energy) to manufacture Vitamin D in our bodies.  Bioluminescence is simply the giving off of photons rather than the taking on.  We see it normally in fireflies and certain marine organisms.

What causes it?

Scientists, in their study of fireflies, etc., don’t know, but believe it to be associated with Adenosine Tri Phosphate (ATP).  ATP is like a wallet for energy, produced by the cells.  I don’t know about fireflies, but it carries energy through our bodies.  It this specific case, when we create an excess of energy, it is given off as photons through the skin.  It is rare and there is no money in it so science doesn’t study it.  Few have even heard of it.

How does it occur?

I learned from Chyna Pi in the ancient Sacred Shamanic Sexual texts it is called, “Dragon’s Fire/Breath” and is the result of a breathing exercise.  Think of hyperventilation.  When we engage in rapid, deep breathing, our fingers and toes go numb.  I imagine this exercise is something like that.  We build up O2 and reduce CO2 in our bodies.  But, there is more to it.  It also has to do with mental discipline and clearing the mind.  But consider, when making love, where you are focused on giving love through your body to your partner and open to receiving love from them, And there is not much else on your mind.

Now consider as you approach the orgasmic plateau, with a love focused mind, the autonomic nervous system takes over and naturally sets up the breathing rhythm to produce these results, mimicking the Shamanic breathing exercise.  Further, PET scans of humans having an orgasm show oxygen flow to the brain is shut off, where fMRI’s show an increase in blood flow.  There are a lot of things happening in the human body about which we have no knowledge.  We can only speculate, as I just did.  Let’s just say humans are fantastic creatures.

Here we can see how singing, a task that requires specialized breathing, can play into this.  We can also see how joy of singing this particular piece and the joy of being physically bonded with our beloved can produce this.  So, here we have a phenomenon that can be produced out of pure joy and the breathing associated with it, or simply by breathing alone, essentially mimicking the joy we feel.  Of course, this is speculation, but I like speculating this way.

Chicken or egg?

None of the men and women I contacted who claim to have observed or done this, ever mentioned “Dragon’s Fire/Breath” or “Shamanic Sex.”  Until I met Chyna Pi.  So, I’m thinking the non-sexual breathing exercise arose from sexual experience, not the other way around.  But, I also think the animal headed humans we see in ancient carvings from around the world arose from a transcendent sexual experience called Trespasso.  But, who knows?

This should not be considered a “goal” of sex, unless you have studied for years under a shaman who is familiar with it.  (There are few today.)  This is probably an expression, a physical manifestation of love and joy: the joy of being bonded with your beloved.  Simply focus on love and let go of everything else.  Something else just as wonderful may happen.  In the mean time, let us light up the world with the joy of being with our beloved.

An Overview

October 22, 2011

Sex is at the root of life: without it, there would be no life!  It is a part of life we generally put into “boxes” of different shapes, colors and sizes, isolating it from the rest of life.  For the most part, we remain ignorant of values other than pleasure and/or procreation and even limit ourselves in these areas.

 

Love is a “many splendored” spectrum.  Scientists all over the world contribute to knowledge of aspects of this spectrum and its beneficial impact on humans in specific areas.  We talk about “making love” which for many is simply a justification for having sex.  Our concepts of love vary from person to person as do the boxes into which we put sex.

 

We are at a point in history where science is making inroads into discoveries about the human body from sub-microscopic discoveries about our genetic code to gross anatomical and physiological discoveries about our sexual bodies.  Even our “psychological bodies” are falling into the realm of science.  Perhaps, as the saying goes, “God isn’t finished with us yet.” 

 

Since Einstein and the field of quantum mechanics, everything seems to be about energy, even life itself!  Energy, then, may be a common denominator for viewing love, sex and the impact of these things on the human body.

 

In reality, it makes no difference what science discovers.  Science can only put names to what happens; it will happen with or without names.  However, science can show possible mechanisms for our continuing evolution, beyond the standard gene pool theory.

 

At this time, there is little or no integration of the various disciplines bringing these topics under the umbrella of life.  Perhaps it is time to begin to integrate the fields?  The average man on the street requires no knowledge of quantum mechanics or anatomy or genetics to accomplish the improvements in his life.  As Hill put it in 1937, “The combination of love, sex and romance can raise a man from mediocrity to the altitude of genius.”[1]  It happens!

Chyna Pi

October 18, 2011

I “met” Chyna Pi on My Space a few years ago.  She is a “sex worker” practicing Shamanic Sex.  When I met her, I didn’t know there was such a thing as Shamanic Sex.  In that it is a discipline, it is like Tantra.  Some would call Chyna a whore, prostitute, and other derogatory names.  I don’t.  She is a teacher.

 It was Chyna who explained to me what I call “Orgasmic Bioluminescence” is the same thing as “Dragon’s Fire/Breath,” a Shamanic breathing exercise that results in bioluminescence.  Sex isn’t necessary.  (Bioluminescence is the opposite of photosynthesis.  In photosynthesis, the body takes on light energy, photons, to perform a task.  Bioluminescence is simply the release of photons from the body.)

 I observed this in my partner of a few years ago and I think I was too awe-struck to be scared!  I’ve chatted on line with women around the world who have experienced this; one told me her husband also glows.    I also mention this response in The Sacred Female.  The only thing I can figure out is that as we reach the orgasmic plateau, our breathing sometimes naturally mimics the Shamanic exercise?

 I have a dream!  I want to get a bunch of multi-disciplined scientists together for a conference on Love, Sex and God, then start the conference with Chyna Pi demonstrating Dragon’s Fire/Breath.  I’m thinking of Dr. Beverly Whipple in sexual science, Dr. Bruce Lipton in microbiology, Dr. Lissa Rankin, Ob/Gyn, Dr. Francine King in Psychiatry, Dr. Gina Ogden in Psychology, a couple of Russians who are working with thought energy impacting our DNA, Karen Burke, the woman who teaches the Kabbalah in Southern California where God is energy, Dr. Ted McIlvenna at the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality, and a few others.  I’m mean.  I just want to warp their minds.

 We humans are fantastic creatures, especially women.  When men begin to let go of all the BS ideas we’ve been fed over the centuries, we’ll know how fantastic we are too!

ILLUSTRATED SEXUAL ANATOMY – A DIFFERENT VIEW.

September 29, 2011

ILLUSTRATED SEXUAL ANATOMY – A DIFFERENT VIEW.

Sexual science, and even society today, views sex as a pleasurable activity.  It is for many, and for many, not.  Perhaps this is because we put the cart before the horse.  The cart is pleasure and the horse is love.  Even science focuses on sexual anatomy as structures or areas that produce pleasure.  Further, they refer to various proteins (neurotransmitters and receptors, enzymes and hormones) as the source of this pleasure.  But, the creation of these proteins is a function of our genes and science is beginning to show our thought energy is one of the major factors in gene expression.  (Genes are like switches.  “Expression” simply means turning the switch on.)

This different view of sexual anatomy looks at the various anatomical structures as energy producers, a more basic approach.  This is because our “thought energy” as reflected in our attitudes, along with physical stimulation, can not only express various genes, but also prevent their expression!

One of the attributes of energy is that it can be transmitted.  In this different view of sexual anatomy, we will look at the major nerve pathways from the genitalia as “transmission lines” from the various “power plants” in the human body and represent them as an electrical schematic.   Where previously we viewed love as some unknown energy to get a better handle on it, now we are dealing with “hard energy:” generally electrochemical energy.  Most of it is specifically unknown in terms of which ion is doing what to whom, but it is recognized as energy, though some of the terminology is euphemistic, like “chemical signals.”

We will show the structures in the human body that generate this “hard energy,” the sensitive areas, and the nerve pathways by which this energy is transmitted to the brain.  There may be more, but science hasn’t found them yet.  For clarity, we will show the structures in one diagram, and the sensitive areas with the nerve schematic in another.  I apologize for these draft sketches, for which either an artist or anatomist would shoot me, however they do convey two points: 1.  The female genitalia are far more complex than male genitalia, and 2.  The electrical schematic shows a possible biological mechanism for the Kundalini sexual response.

Fig1.  Female Genitalia.

 

Fig. 2 Electrical Schematic of Female Genitalia Nerve Pathways

 Pudendal nerve. 

Now, you don’t have to know these nerve-names, but as long as they have them, we’ll use them.  They are viewed as simply different transmission lines.  The pudendal nerve pathway innervates, or serves, the clitoris and the perigenital skin.

The clitoris is the first structure.  This is not an appendage, or something that is just stuck on.  We only see a little of it on the outside.  The nerve endings in the external clitoris are covered with Pacinian corpuscles.  These are like little socks over the individual nerve endings, making them very sensitive to vibration and pressure.

The drawing above shows only about 30% of the clitoris.  This is a magnificent structure and metaphorically representative of woman: there is a lot more inside than what we see on the outside.

The clitoris has roots on the inside.  It splits over the urethra and has two legs, each called crus, giving it a wishbone shape.  These legs insert on the anterior, or front wall of the vagina near the bottom.  The internal “legs” of the clitoris not only insert on the anterior wall of the vagina, but wrap around the whole darn thing.  And that is not all.  Alongside each crus, or cura, are bulbs of erectile tissue.  Gentlemen are familiar with erectile tissue.  During the arousal phase, many women will have this erectile tissue engorged, just like men’s.  Where the male’s sticks out, facilitating our entry of them, these wishbone legs may spread, opening the vagina slightly, also facilitating their entry by us.  This is commonly referred to as a “wide-on,” but scientists might call it “female erection?”

 clitoris

This sketch only shows the part wrapping around the vagina.  The next one shows even more of the structure, but not as complete.

 clitoris sketch

(Courtesy, Museum of Sex. New York, NY.)

The penis also has about 2/3 of the structure inside.  So, the average guy can now honestly claim eighteen inches.  But, what really counts is the size of your love, not your love organ.  The more conditions you impose on your beloved and yourself, the less love you can allow to flow through you.  And it is apparently our love that transforms us.  Sex alone may not do it.

In males, the pudendal nerve is associated with penile skin, scrotum and perineum (perigenital skin).  We lose 50% of our penile skin on circumcision.  The word  “penis” comes from a word meaning “animals tail.”[1]  Think of a dog.  (Many women do, so it won’t be difficult.)  The tail might stick straight up, or straight out as in pointing to prey, or hang between its legs.   It also wags when it is happy.  The word for penis in Sanskrit is “lingam,” which translates to “wand of light.”  One cannot help but wonder, if the word “Lingam” was originally the “wand of enlightenment?”  Or perhaps, the first “magic wand?”  So, gentlemen, have a little more respect for that thing.  And get a lot more respect for the yoni, or sacred place.  Right now, most all of us just see pleasure and there is so much more!

Right underneath the clitoris is the opening for the urethra, or “pee hole.”  This is also the orifice through which female ejaculate comes.  Around the opening of the urethra (meatus) is a very sensitive area called the “U” spot.[2]   It is not known if it is innervated by the pudendal nerve or not, but it would make sense.  Further, this is also a sensitive area for men on the glans penis (head).   It is best to point out here that all the “spots” are simply areas of greater sensitivity than the surrounding area.  These are not anatomical structures and therefore cannot be surgically modified.

Fig. 3 Electrical schematic of Male Genitalia

Perigenital skin.  The skin in this area is very sensitive and generally responds to light stroking, either digital or oral-lingual.  The pudendal nerve ties into the sacral nerve at the base of the spine at S-2 and S-3 (second and third vertebrae in the Sacral area) and the nerve impulses are transferred up the spinal column to the brain.  The term “sacral “ nerve comes from the word “sacred.”  Again, in ancient Sanskrit, the word for the female genitalia is “yoni,” which means “the sacred place.”  Also, this area, at the base of the spine, is the home of the Hindu “sacred life snake” named Kundalini.

The pudendal nerve enters the spine between L – 4, and 5, as well as S – 1, 2, 3 and 4.  L is a designator for the Lumbar area of the spine, and S is for the Sacral area.  These are being mentioned and shown for a specific reason, revealed in the next chapter.

So far, we only have three highly erogenous zones for women.  We are going to wind up with 16 for women and only six for men.  Are you beginning to see why women are such fantastic creatures?  And this is just the beginning!

Pelvic Nerve.

The pelvic nerve innervates the perigenital skin, the vaginal barrel in front of the prostate, the cervix and the rectum.  It is also believed to innervate the female prostate.  Note the perigenital skin is served by two major nerve pathways: pelvic and pudendal.

The first third of the vagina seems to have a higher concentration of pelvic nerve endings than the rest of the vaginal barrel. The sensitive area through the anterior wall near the opening where the swollen tissue or glands from the female prostate protruded onto the wall, was known as the “G spot” from 1982 on, and brought a great deal of attention to our sex lives in terms of additional pleasure for women.   It was thought, but not scientifically shown, to influence the “vaginal orgasm.” As sexual arousal increased, the prostate became engorged, which may increase the “size of the G spot.”  The G spot is not an anatomical structure.  It is the Sexologist’s term for a sensitive area where a response may be elicited when stimulated.  Not all women like, or respond to this stimulation, and prefer other areas to be stimulated.  The terminology of “G spot” did a great deal of good by focusing the general public’s, and science’s attention on female sexual anatomy.

Since we have mentioned the vagina, the origin of the word might be inserted here.  In 1559, Matteo Realdo Colombo, an Italian anatomist, writing in De Re Atonomica, described this anatomical structure as akin to the sheath or scabbard that holds the sword, literally in Latin, vagina equals scabbard.[3]   This is in keeping with the later, ancient thought that men are “penetrators.”

Female Prostate.  Galen, the famous Greco-Roman physician, first described the female prostate before the year 200 AD.  The female prostate is not as well defined as the male prostate.  The male prostate is composed of about 10 to 20 glands and ducts, nicely packaged in the Prostatic Capsule and snuggled up next to the bladder at the back end of the urethra.  The female prostate is composed of up to 100 glands and ducts, or more, around the urethra: hence the interim name, “periurethral glands.”  “Pariurethral” simply means around the urethra.  So, from that standpoint, the male prostate is also a “pariurethral gland.”

This drawing shows the arrangement of ducts common to about 10% of women.  Sixty-six percent have these ducts bunched up toward the meatus and 6% have the distribution more bunched up in the center of the urethra.  That percentage is based on over 200 autopsies of Caucasian women.  In different parts of the world, the percentages may vary, to the point where we say that the female prostate is like the nose: they are all different, some small, some large, some with bumps and some without.

While we are here on the G spot, if you will turn the drawing on the side, face up, it is easy to see how with the standard missionary position it is easy to miss, or not fully engage this area.  Various modifications of the missionary position can help alleviate this oversight.  We will mention that Grafenberg, for whom the G spot was named by Dr. Whipple and Dr. John Perry, suggests rear entry, or doggie style, to fully engage the G spot.[4]  When stimulating the G spot digitally, it is generally best to use two fingers, one on either side.  This also picks up the insertion points of the clitoris’s legs, or cura!  The pelvic nerve enters the spinal column at S-2 – S-4.  This is simply between the 2nd 3rd and 4th vertebrae in the sacral region of the spine.

The pelvic nerve only innervates one area in the rectum for men.  That’s four more for women totaling seven and one for men totaling four.

Hypogastric nerve.

The hypogastric nerve innervates the cervix and the uterus.  The cervix opens into the vagina.  While we are in the vagina—interesting thought—let’s go all the way to the top-front near the cervix.  This part is called the fornix and it also has been shown to contain a sensitive area.  The nerve connections are not known.  It is called “the A spot.”  That’s five.

On the posterior, or back wall of the vagina, there are a group of cells called the interstitial cells of Cajal.[5]  These are energy producers: calcium ions.  They are referred to as “electrical wave producers.”  Energy!  They are generally, or were first found, near the heart and in the intestinal tract.   From their proximity to the heart, they are called “pacemaker cells.”  Calcium ions trigger dopamine and serotonin neurotransmitters and receptors among other things.  These cells are additionally stimulated by pressure, which may be sexually induced.  Then we not only have nerve endings but also these little rascals producing ions, if we don’t hold them back.  These are connected to some unknown nerve nexus.  They are also found in the corpora cavernosum (penis “muscle”), so we have them too.[6]  This gives us two more specific, but suspected areas for women, possibly innervated by the hypogastric or pelvic nerves, or both.  We also have one for men.

There are now a total of four different areas (two just suspected) associated with the hypogastric nerve, some working in conjunction with other nerve pathways.  So the total for women is 12.  In men, the hypogastric nerve is associated with the testes and the prostate.  This totals 7 areas for men and we haven’t finished with women!  The hypogastric nerve has three different insertion points in the thoracic area of the spinal column at Th-10, Th-11 and Th-12.  “Th” refers to the thoracic area of the spine.

We have to understand that for the past few hundred years, there has been a guy here, or a guy there, that has scientifically looked at specific parts of female sexual anatomy and physiology.  But only in the past 50 years or so have these people come together, comparing notes and arguing over the “rightness” and “wrongness” of various scientific conclusions in this field.  As an example, a Malaysian physician, Chua Chee Ann, discovered the “A” spot in 1993.  Prof. Ali A. Shafik, from Egypt, wrote on the interstitial cells of Cajal in 2007!  This is what advances science and they have a long way to go!  But, many of the detrimental myths that we currently live with, now are being shattered by science.

Vagus nerve

The ladies have one more major nerve pathway in the genitalia: the Vagus nerve pathway.  It innervates the cervix and the uterus.  The vagus nerve doesn’t go up the spinal column.  It wanders around a woman’s body, leaving a path like some women on a mall-shopping trip!  “Vagus” means wanderer.  Now, of course, the male vagus nerve is much more squared away.  Just as our prostate is neatly packaged and squared away.  We are so squared away that sometimes we could think our vagus nerve travels at right angles around our body.  We are so interested in being squared away, we forgot to stop and ask for directions.  You know us guys. So, our vagus nerve never got connected to our genitalia.  Really, the male vagus nerve pathway pretty much follows the same path and connects to the same structures as the female, excluding the genitalia.

But, thanks to women, all is not lost!  The Vagus nerve is known as the “nerve of compassion.”  “In a series of controversial papers, physiological psychologist Steve Porges has made the case that the vagus nerve is the nerve of compassion, the body’s caretaking organ.”[7]  Although ours is not hooked up to our genitalia, we have many other ways of showing compassion.  When we compassionately say, “My heart goes out to you,” we aren’t kidding.  The vagus nerve is connected to many of our anatomical structrues, including the heart.  Perhaps women feel compassion more “deeply” than men simply because of this connection at the cervix.

Note that we have three major nerve pathways in the area of the cervix: pelvic, hypogastric and now the vagus nerve pathways.  It is the stimulation of this area, along with the others, that creates what Dr. Barbara Keesling calls The Super Sexual Orgasm.[8]  It could also be called an Optimal Blended orgasm.  We have all four major nerve pathways being stimulated sending impulses to the brain.  But, be careful.  There are some areas around the cervix where the “skin,” or epithelial tissue, is only one cell thick!  It can be easily damaged.  And guys, with the woman on top, gravity pulls her cervix down, so you can save your money on Enzyte.

In her book, The Super Sexual Orgasm, she describes this orgasm as being something much more different that a vaginal orgasm and believe me it is!  The likable thing about her book is that it gave exercises for women to become more comfortable with their own sexuality and with their partner.  It is this comfortability with our sexuality that allows for these orgasms to occur.  That brain of ours is so cluttered up with a bunch of garbage, it just automatically shuts down our pleasure no matter how much energy we are sending it.  Our thoughts, even the ones we don’t know we have, do a lot of controlling in our lives and especially in our sex lives.  And gentlemen, it is a part of our job to help our partner become more comfortable with her sexuality as we become more comfortable with our own.  And make her comfortable with who we are.

So what is the bottom line?  Women have a greater capacity for generating this electrochemical energy than men.  They have at least 14 structures and areas, served by four major nerve pathways where we have 7 structures and areas served by three major nerve pathways.  We exclude the hypogastric and vagus nerve connection in the uterus because the stimulation may be secondary, rather than primary.  This energy, when released does work and work over time is power.  That is a simple engineering definition of power.  And it can be believed by some to be the power that alters our brain and body chemistry to make us better human beings, to raise us to the altitude of genius, by “building the muscles” of our consciousness.

There may be more structures in the female genitalia that are “activated” in a secondary fashion: that is not by direct contact, such as those in the uterus.  The female genitalia are amazing and we have just begun the scientific journey.

One last note: the most important sex organ is the brain.  All of these above won’t work as intended without the involvement of the brain and the mind!  We will continue to discuss the impact of this organ as we continue.  For example, the nerve endings in the uterus are not mechanically stimulated, but they work anyway.

So they have it.  Power.  How do we get it?  It is a gift that we must be willing to receive, just as her love is a gift to us.  How this is transmitted, we can only guess.  It is idiopathic.  (Don’t you love that word: “idiopathic?”) It is as though some of this energy escapes the unshielded parts of the nerve’s axon, or trunk and it goes through her vaginal wall onto and through the thin skin of our penis, our wand of enlightenment, enabling us and providing us with an experience, beyond our wildest dreams.  Or perhaps it is excess energy from the interstitial cells of Cajal.  Then again, it may simply be our own love-energy, reflecting off the polished mirror of her love.  If for no other reason than this fantastic anatomy and physiology, this capacity to generate this energy and power, women deserve to be treated with much more dignity and respect than has been afforded them over the centuries.  It is time for a change.  Let’s hope we make it.

On Transcendent Sex

August 31, 2011
I mention a few episodes of transcendent sex in The Sacred Female, but I did not know what they were called until I read Transcendent Sex.  My descriptions there came from experience.

 Dr. Jenny Wade’s book , Transcendent Sex,[1] gives a detailed description from 91 different people who experienced this phenomenon.  Here, we leave the realm of physical pleasure and sex.  It is truly a mind-altering experience, implying a significant change in our brain chemistry, and our lives.  Sexual love is for some, simply a pleasurable pathway to this ecstasy, although actual intercourse may not be necessary.  There are many forms of transcendent sex.   These are altered states of consciousness, due to a change in brain chemistry, which may also be accomplished by years of ascetic living and meditation or with drugs such as LSD and other methods.  We may think of them as “stepping into another world.”

 As our consciousness grows, we may think of it as living in another world, while still connected to this one.  One cannot help but wonder if we treated our beloved mates as sacred, it would work for us?

Dr. Wade categorizes many different types of transcendent sex and different experiences within the types.  The following list is excerpted from her book only to show the many different types occurring to individuals.  Since this survey was limited to 91 respondents, and the list is but a “headline,” her book is recommended reading for further information on this subject.

First she hits is with the bad news:

  • Sexual techniques and mechanics may have no bearing on transcendence. 
  • Transcendence may occur between couples without sexual congress.
  • Orgasm is not a causal factor.  It may occur without, before, during or after orgasm, and orgasm becomes a non-event.
  • Sexual abuse is not a causal factor.
  • Transcendence may occur in the later years of a marriage or on a one-night stand.
  • It “transcends” religious beliefs and sexual orientation.
  • It is not a guarantee of “true love,” nor should it be a goal in sexual love.  It is just something that happens, sometimes.

She relates the various experiences as follows:

Fireworks, Light and Electricity: stars—lightening—emersion in various colored lights— golden lights shooting upward—sensations of heat—actual elevated body temperature (105 F).  Also, a man reported tingling sensations in his hands and feet for weeks afterwards, interfering with his sleep.

 Kundalini:  Science defines the Kundalini as, “nonodinary percepts of energy fields in the absence of any discernible stimulus, especially sensations of heat, subtle force fields, light and liquefaction, congruent with descriptions in various mystical traditions.”[2]  Kundalini is also the name of the “sacred snake,” coiled near the base of the spine, or the Serpent Goddess, in the sacral region.  In English, the experience is like a hot snake uncoiling up your spinal column, plus!  Kundalini has a multitude of spiritual meanings and here we only focus on the sexual experience.

                                              The Spinal Column

 

Here is one place where the insertion points between Th-10 and S-2 of the various nerve pathways come into play.  The Kundalini experience may be a rhythmic, cycling flow of additional neural impulses at the various insertion points along the spinal column, working their way up the spine.  As we are focused on transmitting love to our beloved, thinking of nothing else, all kinds of wondrous things happen!  However, the Kundalini can be extremely painful if, as we surmise, there is an excess of this energy trying to cycle and flow.  It is as if a “log jam” of neural impulses occurs at these points on the spinal column.  It can also lead to madness!

Deity Presence:  angels—the presence of God (the Third in the room)—visitations of the deceased.

Gaia:  feeling of oneness with blades of grass or flowing like sap in trees—magical connections with plants or animals—sounds of silence as a permeating feeling.  One man reported a transmission of intelligence from a dolphin with whom he had been lovingly playing.  It was a red beam of light focused on the center of his forehead, pineal gland, he described as a “virtual transmission implant that could code a 60 gig, 60 bit DVD ROM streaming video that portrayed all of evolution.”[3]   (The occurrence was years before the web and only after the web did he have words to describe it.)

Trespasso:  seeing extra faces on your lover—seeing a sequence of other faces, or people—angelic or demonic faces—spirits trespassing into partner’s body, obscuring the face—animal faces, usually bear, wolf or bird.  (I speculate this is the source of many animal headed archeological artifacts: totems, figurines, petroglyphs, etc.)

Merging:  becoming one with—filling with the others energy—spiritual awakening.  Usually occurring with deep love.  Sometimes in long term relationships.

Shapeshifting: animal possession—sense of being an animal with all the attributes.  One woman saw her limbs grow, her body hair grow as she became a wolf with no recollection of humanness, but later was able to recall her wolf-ness.

Transport: out of body, where the body is seen objectively (generally afterwards)—spatial dislocation—becoming an animal or plant—transport to another time and/or place.

Past lives:  who you were, when in that experience or past lives intrude into current friendships.

Nothingness: a sense of nothingness—dissolving—a loss of boundaries—nothingness AND everything-ness—no sense of self.

Deity uno:  being one with God—into the white light of God—dissolving into God—merged into the fires of God—felt alive—apparitions of the dead—residual “sensitivity” or ability to see the essence of others.

These are but a few of the experiences discussed in much more detail in Dr. Wade’s book.  When we don’t know transcendence is a possible outcome of a sexual encounter, regardless of how ecstatic it may be, the experience can be frightening.  Now, you know.  In the presence of fear, these experiences can be interpreted as “bad trips,” or even “evil” depending on the individual’s belief system.

Generally speaking, transcendent sex can lead to positive spiritual outcomes: instantly or years later.  Not always.  There is one story of a former Catholic priest who was psychologically destroyed by successive transcendent sexual experiences.[4]   “A transcendent experience can tap into unhealthy complexes and magnify them.”[5]    One woman had an extra-marital affair with a cross-country colleague, ending in her divorce and a psychotic break, thanks to transcendent sex.[6]   This is an altered state of consciousness and not to be trifled with!  Dr. Wade also warns that many western “gurus” simply use their addiction to transcendent sex as a mechanism for seduction.  There is a strong spiritual discipline that accompanies most teaching for this form of divine enlightenment.  On the other hand, sometimes it just happens.

If any of this has happened to you, please feel free to comment and please tell others about this blog.
