Managing the Male Sex Drive

At age 12, in 1961 I saw the movie Spartacus, directed by Stanley Kubrick.
In one scene, the camera focuses on Kirk Douglas' face as Jean Simmons sheds her gown. His face is full of wonderment and awe, lighted by the mystical glow seeming to emanate from her naked body but actually from the fire.
The scene made a profound impression on me, a boy just entering puberty. Clearly, the sight of the naked female body is religious experience, I thought.
The Illuminati is a sex cult. It programs us to worship the fertile female, bestow her with virtue, and regard intercourse as the highest experience life offers. This is what Satanists want us to believe.
Romantic love is our ersatz religion. Sexual intercourse is the holy sacrament.
I subscribed to Playboy and devoured nudes with Spartacus adoration. Henceforth, I judged females primarily on sex appeal; all others were invisible. I also equated sexual desire with love, and love with religion. Idealization results in impotence. I became dysfunctional, unable to relate to women as they really are, flawed insecure human beings. I put them on a pedestal and my love life was a disaster.
This subversive verse from Paul Simon's "Kathy's Song" (1965) became the anthem of my dysfunctional generation:
"So you see I have come to doubt/ All that I once held as true/ I stand alone without beliefs/ The only truth I know is you."
We were taught to be "alienated" from society and to seek fulfilment in romance. A reader, JJ, writes: Frank Zappa said that the vast majority of mental illness comes from love songs in popular music, songs that depict a reality that will never exist for the listener. These songs program you into thinking that you'll be happy forever with someone, thus making you disappointed when it doesn't happen. You can't go anywhere without hearing them. When you're awake, they're just annoying sonic wallpaper, but otherwise, they affect how you think and feel, believe it."
We were brainwashed to think sexual intercourse was a mystical experience that united us with God. This is based on Cabala, the dogma of the Illuminati sex cult.
"An erotomania is abroad through our civilization," Francis Parker Yockey wrote in 1948. It is "the identification of 'happiness' with sexual love, holding it up as the great value, before which all honor, duty, patriotism, the consecration of Life to a higher aim, must give way." ( Imperium, 297)
This pervasive message has not changed. Sex is the way to God. All human relations are reduced to "hot or not." Paradoxically this focus on sex is an impediment. A couple needs to first establish a human connection, not based on sex.
PROCREATION OR RECREATION?
In Plato's Republic, Socrates says that in old age he finally lost his sex drive, and felt as if he had been " released from the jaws of a wild beast."
Nature did not intend for sex to become a lifelong obsession. It is part of the courtship and procreation phase. We are meant to marry young, have children and then focus our energy on more important things.
For men, the goal is to control our sex drive rather than to be controlled by it (or by women.) How do men do this if they cannot find a compatible mate?
Obviously, most use pornography to masturbate. Most men would think of nothing else if they didn't relieve the pressure.
But, as a sensible teenager said to me recently: "If I need to look at pictures, well then I don't really need to do it." His focus is on managing his sex drive, not on dissipation. By masturbating every few days, he can be "cool" with girls.
One acquaintance doesn't masturbate very often. "Why stoke the fires?" he says. He keeps his mind off sex and focuses on more exciting pursuits.
This is called sublimation. The prodigious American writer Upton Sinclair (1878-1968) left, wrote in his Autobiography (1962):
My chastity was preserved at the cost of much emotional effort...What did I get in return for this? I got intensity and power of concentration; these elements in my make-up were the product of my effort to resist the tempter.
I learned to work fourteen hours a day at study and creative effort because it was only by being thus occupied that the craving for woman could be kept out of my soul. I recited the Wisdom of Solomon: "he that ruleth his spirit is greater than he that taketh a city. (p. 46)
According to Sinclair, and many religions, the energy goes right to the spiritual bottom line:
Imagine anyone wanting a lot of money or houses and servants or fine raiment if he knew how to be happy as I did! Imagine anyone becoming drunk on whiskey if he might become drunk on poetry and music, sunsets and valleys full of clover! (56)
The masculine sex drive is a powerful creative force but it needs to be controlled and steered. We can do this by applying the brake (sublimation) and then releasing it (masturbation.) Every man is different and must find his own formula.
The world is run by a satanic (Cabalist i.e. Masonic Jewish) sex cult based in London which controls brainwashing (media and education.) They use sex to distract, degrade and control both men and women. The New World Order plan is to restore the feudal model in which we are serfs at best. They undermine resistance to their plot by destroying our sources of cohesion and identity: nation, race, religion and family.
Slavery begins with the mind. We can resist by not being controlled by sex.
First Comment from Dan Butler (1955-2017):
For me, it was the orgy scene in Cecil B. DeMille's "biblical' skin flick, THE TEN COMMANDMENTS. I was probably SIX. (I got a woodie)
I bet the studio after-party was x-rated.
