The Wolves of War-REVIEW

SexuS Journal ● 2017 ● 2 (3): 021-054

KEY WORDS: mushroom, ergot, Thracian megaliths, berserkers, Dionysus, Apollo

Abstract:Archaeological evidence indicates that naturally occurring megalithic structures that resemble mushrooms throughout the region identified as Thrace in antiquity were the foci of religious observances. Wine was recognized in antiquity as the product of fungal growth and the drink was a cultivated version of wild intoxicants, among which was the mushroom. The rituals in celebration of the deity commemorated his primordial identity as resident in these wild plants, and the wine itself was fortified beyond its alcoholic content by the addition of these wild antecedents of viticulture. The legendary wine of Thrace was particularly potent through the addition of a psychoactive mushroom ... REST

Tantra, ESR and the Limits of Female Potentials-REVIEW

SexuS Journal ● 2017 ● 2 (3): 055-074

KEY WORDS: Expanded Sexual Response (ESR), Expanded Orgasm (EO), Altered States of Consciousness (ASC), Status Orgasmus (SO), Four nerve theory of female orgasm; Tantra, Female Orgasm, Vaginal Orgasm, Clitoral Orgasm, Taoist Love, Status Orgasmus, Blended Orgasm, Extended Orgasm, Expanded Orgasm, Tantric Orgasm

Abstract: Female orgasm and female ‘peak experiences’ are well recognized in the ancient historical literature of the India, China and Far East. Eastern cultures tried to discover the limits and extents of female orgasmic response for centuries unlike the Western cultures, where, for centuries, pleasure and orgasm of females were accepted as a sin and were notregarded as acceptable as they were in the Eastern philosophy. Tantric cultures and Taoist cultures encouraged the prolonged sexual activity, coitus and female orgasm for hundreds of year...REST

Abstract:  A 32 year old married man presented to a sleep disorders center with a chief complaint of “fondling my wife during sleep.” His wife of 10 years had urged him to seek help for this sleep-related problem that had begun four years earlier, when he commenced to snore and also grope and fondle his wife sexually while being sound asleep.  His snoring became progressively louder over time, and his wife reported that “he would keep trying to hump me while he was asleep...REST

The New Aphrodite-REVIEW

SexuS Journal ● 2017 ● 2 (4): 111-116

KEY WORDS: Aphrodite, Greek Myths, Dionysus, Mystery religion

 Abstract:The tale of Eros and Psyche is known from its Latin version as Cupid and Psyche, encapsulated in the novel titled the Metamorphoses or Golden Ass (Asinus Aureus) of the second-century CE Apuleius from a Roman colony in northern Africa. It survived antiquity perhaps in a single manuscript and excited great interest in Florence of the Medici Renaissance because of its Neoplatonic motif of the transcendent mystical escape from the Cave of delusionary appearance...REST

Female Orgasmic Consciousness: New Horizons-REVIEW

SexuS Journal ● 2017 ● 2 (4): 117-145

KEY WORDS: orgasmic consciousness, vaginal orgasm, clitoral orgasm, G-spot, A-spot, PC-muscles, blended orgasm, status orgasmus, expanded orgasm, four nerve theory, expanded sexual response, ESR, , deep vaginal erogenous zone, DVZ

Abstract:   Although there are many forms of female orgasms described in the literature, there are still debates about the female orgasmic response and no unified theory to explain those orgasmic reflexes and sexual responses have been proposed. Also, there are inconsistent reports and comments about the ‘vaginal versus clitoral orgasm controversy’. Recently, a novel form of female orgasms has been coined as “Expanded Sexual Response” (ESR), and defined as: “being able to attain long lasting and/or prolonged and/or multiple and/or sustained orgasms and/or status orgasmus that lasted longer and more intense than the classical orgasm patterns defined in the literature”. Expanded orgasms induce a different state of consciousness, or “orgasmic consciousness”, whereas many forms of altered states of consciousness (ASC) can be observed....REST

Femtheogens: Women and Sacred Plant in the Classical World-REVIEW

SexuS Journal ● 2017 ● 2 (5): 167-188

KEY WORDS: Aphrodite, Greek Myths, Dionysus, Eleusian, Eleusis 

Abstract:  Typical of male reluctance to accept the role of female involvement with entheogens, one recent authority on ancient wine has cast doubt on the very existence of the otherwise well-documented ecstatic rituals of the mountain revels of the women called bacchants for their celebration of the godDionysus/Bacchus, since it would not seem in the best interests of the town for the men to allow their mothers, wives, and daughters to behave in such a liberated and profligate behavior. These women in actuality were engaged in the ritual gathering of sacred psychoactive plants, which involved the experience of divine possession by the deity and was described in a vocabulary of traditional sexual metaphors, such as are common among herb-gatherers...REST

Brain Chemistry of Love and Sex-REVIEW

SexuS Journal ● 2017 ● 2 (5): 189-200

KEY WORDS: Love, romantic love, maternal love, neurobiology, fMRI, passion, dopamine, oxytocin, vasopressin

 Abstract:   No one knows when the story of love began in the history of mankind, though from a religious point of view it started with Adam and Eve and theForbidden Fruit. Scientifically speaking, love probably made its appearance with H. neanderthalensis between 350 and 30 thousand years ago. Neanderthal graves have yielded the pollen of brightly colored flowers brought from different regions, and these have been associated with some kind of loving relationship between the living and the dead...REST

Sexsomnias & Parasomnias: Sleep Related Sexual Seizures & Forensic Hints-REVIEW

SexuS Journal ● 2017 ● 2 (6): 257-288

KEY WORDS: sexsomnia, sleepsex, sexual behaviors of sleep, temporal lobe epilepsy, ictal orgasm, epi-leptic sexsomnia, polysomnography, non-REM sleep

 Abstract:  The first classification of sleep-related disorders and abnormal sexual behaviors and experiences was published in 2007. Parasomnias (abnormal sleep-related behaviors and experiences) and sleep-related epileptic seizures were the most frequent disorders, after Kleine-Levin syndrome (periodic hypersomnia with abnormal wakeful sexual behaviors). The first two conditions were named sexsomnia (sleepsex) and epileptic (ictal) sexsomnia, respectively. Sexsomnia usually emerges during confusional arousals (CAs) from delta non-REM sleep (N3 sleep), either associated or unassociated with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)...REST

Mushrooms and the Wine of Maron-REVIEW

SexuS Journal ● 2017 ● 2 (6): 289-308

KEY WORDS: Mystery, Great Gods, Samothrace, seafaring, wine, Maron, mushroom, Cyclops, Odysseus, Celtic fair-ies, Virgil, Aeneid, foundation of Rome, lycanthropy, Phrygian cap, Bassarides, fox cap, Draco, Dacians, berserkers, haoma, Persians, Kabeir

Abstract:Although the excavators of the sanctuary of the Great Gods on the island of Samothrace recognize that drinking to the point of intoxication was practiced at the Mystery, naively this has not been seen as an element in the initiation scenario. Numerous drinking cups have been found, inscribed as the property of the gods, and the ancient village of Keramidaria (‘Ceramics’) was devoted to the manufacture of amphorae, officially stamped as genuine provenance of Samothrace for the export of the wine distinctive of the Mystery, probably a version of Homer’s potent Maronian wine of the Cyclops. That wine still existed in the Roman Period, and on the testimony of the proconsul assigned to the province, it even required dilution with eight parts water to be drunk safely...REST

Neurons’ Secret Archaic Optic Language: Entoptic Images, Pshophenes and Archetypes-REVIEW

SexuS Journal ● 2017 ● 2 (6): 308-348

KEY WORDS: entoptic, phosphene, H-ASC, hallucinogen, archaic neurological language, paganism, shamanism, psycho-active plants, opium, cannabis, psilocybin, mescaline, DMT, ayahuasca, thujone, peganum harmala, phalaris, ibogaine, peyote, magic mushroom

Abstract: Psychoactive plants have been consumed by many cultures, cults and groups during religious rituals and ceremonies for centuries and they have been influential on the eruption of many images, secret and religious symbols, esoteric geometrical shapes, archetypes, religious figures, and philosophy of religions since the dawn of Homo sapiens. Some of the psychoactive plants used for religious purposes were: narcotic analgesics (opium), THC (cannabis), psilocybin (magic mushrooms), mescaline (peyote), ibogaine (Tabernanthe iboga), DMT (Ayahuasca and Phalaris species), Peganum harmala, bufotenin, muscimol (Amanita muscaria), Thujone (absinthe, Arthemisia absinthium), ephedra, mandragora, star lotus, Salvia divinorum etc. An important property of these natural chemicals is to induce the human psyche to perceive optical forms and shapes that are existent in the subconscious and presumed collective unconsciousness, and which emerge during certain trance states and ASCs (altered states of consciousness)....REST
