The images the Greek poets used to represent the erotic experience, figured as a type of suffering, a violent and intense aggression, are emphasized in the myth. When I was staring hypnotically at the painting, feeling a bit uncomfortable with Venus’ nudity, but mesmerized at the same time, I started to think of Aphrodite’s dual nature.

Sexual Normality Is Not Necessary Or Sufficient For Sexuality

- Sexual normality implies the innate amalgamation of one’s sexual drive, or libido, with a predetermined sexual goal, i.e., copulation. This ossified concept of normality produces a fragmentary view of sexual theory. Therefore, normality is not necessary or sufficient for sexuality; human sexuality is individual, not universal. An innate association of sexual drive with a specific sexual goal is incompatible with a comprehensive examination of human sexuality. As mentioned above, sexual normality is ossified....   [tags: Sexual intercourse, Human sexuality]
