In “The Soul of Sex” Thomas Moore refers to ‘lovemaking as the ritual that invites the goddess of sex to be present.’  Yet he acknowledges that ‘in our society sex is wounded by a deep-seated masochism, which finds distorted satisfaction in the suppression of desire.’  Organized religion hasn’t always been helpful as we embrace sex as something that ‘keeps us connected to our deepest natures and links us to our roots.’  As Moore exclaims: “At the very heart of sex lies a profound affirmation of life, giving us reason for living, optimism, and energy.” Yes. Let’s talk about sex and call it a (potentially) spiritual practice if you like.
