Managing the Male Sex Drive (Updated)

When I wrote this article in 2004,
I didn't realize I was describing 
a form of satanic possession i.e. sex addiction.
"Sexual liberation" 
used our sexual desires
to degrade and enslave us.  
Hollywood Jews hooked us on porn
and they haven't looked back.

Satanists believe sex is the highest 
experience life has to offer. 
Now society believes it too.

Many men have turned to pornography which has made live women redundant to them. The difference between having sex with a slut and masturbating to porn is negligible. Certainly the latter is much easier and safer. Over time, men learn that the real satisfaction of sex is not physical release. Men get off on a woman's response to their lovemaking as part of a close relationship.

(Revised from Feb 2014)

At age 12, in 1961 I saw the movie Spartacus, directed by Stanley Kubrick.

simmons.JPGIn 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 female body is mystical. 

We don't appreciate the extent to which we are programmed by the Illuminati Jews who control Hollywood. Most of our ideas about romance, sex and marriage come from the movies.

The Illuminati is a sex cult. It programs us to worship the fertile young female, bestow her with wisdom and virtue she does not have, 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. In essence, I became dysfunctional, unable to relate to women as they really are. I put them on a pedestal and my love life was a disaster.

hqdefault.jpgThis 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."

The Seekers' "We'll build a World of our Own" was my favorite song. 

We were taught to be "alienated" from society and to seek fulfillment 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."


Uprooted from our true historical and spiritual context, we were told life is meaningless: find meaning in sex. Thus sex assumed a hugely disproportionate place in our lives. This is a satanic possession.

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 that controls the world.

"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, consecration of Life to a higher aim, must give way." ( Imperium, 297)

This pervasive message has not changed. Sex is the way to God. Human relations are reduced to "hot or not." Paradoxically this focus on sex prevents it from happening. A couple needs to first establish a human connection, not based on sex. 


In Plato's Republic, Socrates says that when he finally lost his sex drive in old age, he 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 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.

 Men are programmed to think they need a woman's love. We are actually taught that satisfying a woman is a prerequisite to manhood!  What nonsenseThis inflation of women is debilitating and, by weakening men, actually impedes successful relationships. This is because heterosexuality is based on the exchange of female power for male power expressed as love. Power is the essence of masculinity. It is non-negotiable.

As long as a man craves a woman's (or anyone's) love, he is not a man. He can mark his coming-of-age from the moment he stops seeking female love.

Men are under the illusion that a woman will recognize and appreciate his sterling qualities - character, personality, skills etc.. Women used to love men. Today they are generally looking for a man to give them what they think they need-- a good time, sex, security, status... 

Instinctively, most want marriage and family but they have been tricked into squandering their short period of fertility by seeking power instead of love, career instead of marriage. 

(left, a satanic cult inverts healthy & unhealthy)

They have been taught to trade on their sex appeal instead of the qualities of wife and mother. Many men have turned to pornography which has made real women redundant to them. The difference between having sex with a self-proclaimed slut and masturbating to porn is negligible. Certainly, the latter is much safer.


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.

Jsinclair.jpgThis 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.
----------- Sex Obsession is Satanic Possession

golden-calf-in-10-commandments (1).jpgFirst 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. 

I had 'made out' with a few girls in high school.  When I got car keys in my senior year, I got a steady girlfriend, and a cheap motel on wheels.   After War War Two, the car and the drive-in movie outdoor theater empowered high school boys privacy with their prey -- uh, I mean girlfriend -- for hours after dark on Friday and Saturday nights.

Hollywood cranked out soft core smut called 'B' movies for the drive-ins.  Teenage boys had access to 'dirty magazines' in the back room of the sleazy little 'Newsstands' that were little but cover for porn shops even in the small towns, if they had a college.

I had a 'nice girl' for a senior year girlfriend.  But because I could so easily get her off to myself in the car after dark, she became the object of the fantasies provoked by Playboy and Penthouse, and the Newsstand porn I hid under my bedroom dresser at home.

Now you must understand that my relationship with this girl had begun the old-fashioned way.   We met at the burger shop where we worked after school that summer of '72.  The attraction had begun with enjoying conversation with each other; having similar interests and opinions about life.   But once I got the car, and found the dirty bookstore, I began to morph into Mister Hyde.   I recall becoming obsessed with finding girls in porn that looked like my girlfriend, so I could take it take it home and use it for fantasy of things I hadn't got her to do yet.   She didn't know about that, but she became stressed by the change in my behavior.  I skipped the conversations we'd enjoyed having and turned every date into a tryst.  I had become obsessed.

I was aware of it, and I did feel a vague guilt about it.  But at seventeen lust is very easily triggered and stoked.  Girls don't break up with sexually obsessive boyfriends. It ends up corrupting them too.   Her innocence was damaged, but that wasn't why she broke off with me.  A week before Prom she caught me making out with another girl after school.
I've never seen a look so fierce, and she slapped me so hard my ears rang.

I saw her again that fall on campus.  She'd become a feminist.

Hollywood, 'B' movies and 'R' movies in the 60's and 70's.  The Drive-in Movie.  Porn.  A diabolical subversive conspiracy?

You bet!

Scruples - the game of moral dillemas

In our meaningless life, sure, why not meaningless sex? Masturbation (sex with yourself) is sex outside of marriage (the context of mutual self-giving). Together with choosing your own gender, this is being sold to eleven-year-olds in Sex Ed class across the country. For the record, masturbation in the Bible is part of the sin of Oman, who angered God by ‘wasting his seed.’ Unfortunately, God never claimed that pleasing Him would be easy.

James C said (October 10, 2018):

IMO, the ultimate purpose of humanity is to populate the universe. So the Creators had to come up with a means to make this possible. Ergo sex. You can search the bible from Genesis to Revelation and you will find only one command that humanity has ever even remotely obeyed: "Be fruitful and multiply" (Genesis 1:28). The command was to have sex. A global population of nearly 8 billion indicates widespread compliance.

SP said (October 10, 2018):

I can relate to that article you posted. I am the type of guy that has a very providerish and protective attitude. I do want to look after a woman and be loved for that. So in a way I do seek a female’s love. Feminism and the constant media brainwashing through shows like ‘Sex and the City’ has destroyed the aspect of a man to be a provider, and now these girls care about is the bad boy types who provide nothing to them except the shallow things.

I had this discussion with a friend recently. It’s really sad how these girls literally go for these guys who treat them like they are pieces of shit. It just reflects upon them and it makes me totally disgusted. Girls from broken backgrounds, feminism and the media have literally destroyed the natural male-female dynamic. So any guy who is still connected to that is just going to be left hanging and frustrated. I have a big sex drive, but I don’t go on one night stands or casual stuff, so I have myself under control because I respect myself. I have come to the point where I am like a lot of guys who just prefer to be single because it’s just the better option. Look at the girls and the hangups, immaturity, entitlement and selfishness they bring. The gynocentric culture is poison to men. But I also believe that if you put yourself into the top 5% of men and live like that (having high morals, standards, integrity, honesty, etc.), you will automatically go through a lot of heartache because if you dwell in that percentile all you really deserve is a woman who dwells in that same percentile. To me it looks like it will take a lot of time for that women to cross my path. So maybe there is still hope. On a bigger picture, I think the only thing now that will correct this anti-biological attack is a massive war that will wipe out the feminists including the male feminists.

You amaze me with your insights.
This time it's on girls.
No matter how old they are, they're just girls.
You are so right in your observations.
Once upon a time women stood in the shadow of men.
She was to be his "helper" to create and nurture his family.
The satanists in Hollywood have turned that plan upside down.
Sure when females are young, some are very beautiful, so what.
They all get old, they wrinkle, their tits sag and most get fat.
Physically, not so good look-en. So what.
Real women become great spouses, mothers, and grandmothers.
Bulwarks of families.
The rest just become old whores.

AS said (August 29, 2015):

I think you have many insights to offer harried men (and women) of our perverse culture, the result of an unrelenting culture war instigated back in the 19th century by secret societies.

Writings of the Alta Vendita stated that, since they had been unable to defeat the Church and the moral law by direct confrontation, they would resort to subversion, and in particular the corruption of morals. (Think of the young man who knifed to death Maria Goretti, an eleven-year-old Italian girl who would not yield to his porn-induced advances.) When the hearts of women would be corrupted, there would be no more resistance; society would fall under their domination.

I must write to you today because you are unwittingly, perhaps, entangling men in mortal sin, sin that will send them to hell for all eternity unless they have the grace to repent beforehand.

All deliberate acts against purity are gravely sinful. Masturbation is a sin against the sixth commandment, a mortal sin. There are means for boys and men to overcome this real challenge to self-mastery, but without the help of God's grace, it must be nearly impossible.

So, I repeat, you are telling men to commit a mortal sin to relieve sexual pressure. They should talk to a traditional Catholic priest about the means that Catholic men for centuries have used to tame the promptings of the flesh.

Marco A said (August 28, 2015):

Abstinence isn't a option, its totally necessary for young men in this day and age. If you listen to the satanic media and follow what they deem as normal you will risk ending up as a sex fiend, and/ or totally lethargic, lazy, sinful and worthless.

Abstinence even from masturbation is what is necessary to defy the sex cult that rules the world, with this young men will find that they will recover lots of vigour that they squandered on their lusts. Masturbation should not be encouraged, being abstinent is a more moral and path that is more free.

Anything that violently blinds a man, or turns his will towards a deadly sin (lust) should be deemed evil and conquered.

It may seem impossible remain abstinent, but its not. Its a moral path and does not have to be difficult. For it to not be difficult you must always be alert to all the hidden triggers that are placed everywhere; traps to make you a slave to lust, weak and a worthless casualty in the Illuminati's war against mankind - think magazines, commercials, clothing etc.

There is a war going on, and men must take steps to conquer themselves first totally, so as to be able to resist against the Anti-Christ system.

This is my opinion, I'm no saint, I don't follow it flawlessly. But, its a battle plan to defy and resist the evil subversion going on.

Tony B said (August 28, 2015):

The once common "no" has been pretty easily replaced by "yes" using simple propaganda which should have been just as simply recognized as such. Probably because it so often comes from "authorities" which women are naturally programmed to trust but they don't know those authorities who had their best interests at heart have been replaced by satanists or near satanists who wish to corrupt by the easy misuse of sex.

Bruce said (August 28, 2015):

There is a line the movie about Howard Hughes. When he was talking with Kate Hepburn's family they mentioned that (paraphrase) it's not right to talk about money all the time.... And the actor portraying Hughes said "that's because you have money.".

Women now a days are decided into so many distinctions that one can not through a stick now and hit a lady. They are all forms of green haired, tattooed, rotund, demanding, slutty, washed up, women that men have to be anything but themselves to find where they for in. If they powerful women demands that the man jumps and he doesn't, he's nexted.

Or if he does not find fat beautiful, he's shamed. If coloured haired and tattooed is not his thing, this is a large portion of women who hell never be comfortable with. And if she was to sleep with the man that night, and he refuses, she's not going to offer herself as marriage material to him let along offer to sleep with him after his rejection of her lust. Courtship is long gone. What use to be called courtship , is now called stalking. What is to be love is now lust.

What used to be called responsibility is now called, being a sucker or chump. And what use to be called the head of the household is now just a " yes are a-man" divorce laws make men fearful of saying no. The system has truly been deliberately broken to profit the few. It will never be fixed.

Vintage Makow,

In answer to a prayer your article on managing the male sex drive arrived. Very interesting indeed!

Charles said (February 21, 2014):

This is some deep stuff Henry. We are a world in turmoil. I can tell you I was abstinent for 8 years, and can verify I was never closer to God. I had doubted my faith for a while, but God wasn't going to let me go (Thank you Lord!).

Men CAN do this. I did this between the ages of 18-26. That was tough, but I was dedicated! I later met my wife, and have been married for 20 years since. After my re-awakening, I couldn't believe everything I was seeing on T.V. and movies.

EVERY SINGLE commercial, show, and movie is either something to do with the Supernatural, or sex! I do feel we are in the last days. Only God knows the exact time, but it's clear we are wrapping things up. They have all but made Homosexuality normal now.

Thanks for your website. Lots of great info, and I certainly appreciate the perspective you bring! Thank you!

JG said (February 20, 2014):

Lust is a deceiver, it is in direct opposition to love. There IS such a thing as loving someone without having sex. And, how very often a relationship becomes disposable after sex.
The pornography attraction is a lusting of the eye. And what very often follows is the lusting to satisfy the flesh.

Female attire can also be a deceiver. So very many women today look better with their clothes on than off. Just walk along the beach on a bright sunny day and gaze at the women wearing bikinis. That's when you see all the flaws of the flesh. Photography hides these imperfections as well as makeup and clothes. Sorry, you've been duped!

As stated in The Book of Genesis, it's the "imagination of the heart" that's evil.
