Excerpt from My New Book “Sex, Lies & Religion”

Chapter 9

Sacred Sexuality (A Relational Spirituality)

“Don’t have sex, man. It leads to kissing and pretty soon you have to start talking to them.”
-Steve Martin

Sex begins in the kitchen and you don’t have to be a good cook to find it there. Simply gather a handful of the succulent fruit described in this chapter and your mate will be literally eating out of your hand while racing you to the bedroom for an endless time of wild and abandoned lovemaking.

Does this sound too good to be true? It’s not. This is what can happen when you enjoy the freedom of unconditional sexuality. Making love becomes a way of life. It is the spiritual essence of each day. And in this sense every day is foreplay. The soft brush of a fleeting kiss as you awaken, a brief time of thoughtful conversation over a cup of coffee, a warm and close embrace at hello and goodbye, showing affection to unruly children, expressing exuberance about life, practicing serenity in turbulent times, and displaying a sense of compassion to others, are all as much “making love” as when actual sexual intercourse takes place.

If you have any experience with the Bible, these words should sound hauntingly familiar. The previous paragraph is simply a paraphrase of Galatians 5, which describes the character qualities of what is called “the fruit of the Spirit.” The thought-provoking and controversial words contained therein provide the spiritual essence for this aspect of sacred
sexuality.
