How is sexuality viewed through pagan beliefs?
« on: February 16, 2012, 07:53:35 PM »

I have always had a distorted view of sexuality due to christian beliefs being pounded into my head and also other unhealthy sources. So I am wondering what the pagan viewpoint is on sexuality...

I think Live and let Live sums it up. Criticism is not tolerated. If this doesn't give you the answer you were looking for, you will have to explain exactly what it is that is worrying you.

To each their own , with no judgement by others. Like they uses to say " If it feels good do it".

I  think most pagans attitude to sexuality and sexual preferences is akin to Frederick the Great's attitude to the peasants

"I don't care what they do as long as they don't do it in the streets@ and frighten the horses!"



@Actually doing anything in the stables with the horses would be a little weird too but apart from that......

It's too "open" a question.  As marisol suggested,

Care to narrow it down a bit?

Yeah. We've even accepted Serp without (much) judgement taking place. We have a v high tolerance level for "out there" in this joint.

 I don't think anyone can speak for paganism and it's views on sexuality.

 My own personal view .....  as long as what somebody else is doing isn't affecting me then it's not my concern. There's a lot of diversity out there in what turns people on. I just don't feel that it's my place to judge.

 Of course there have to be reasonable limits, but as long as everyone is over 18 and nobody no innocent is being harmed ?

First time for everything eh Blue?

Good to see you're taking notes during the She-Shaman lessons you've been forced to attend.

Well I'm a homosexual and pagan so I suppose my answer is pretty obvious, eh?

 Perfect example of diversity. Now some folks would consider that to be foreplay ! 

 Sorry kiddo ...... not my thing and i'm not looking for someone to play with.

That wasn't foreplay it was more like why don't you go away?
No sexually oriented remarks unless you're on the thread made just for you on Kiva.

 Just as long as we're clear. You don't have a say about who comes and goes.

 Now i'm going to go back to ignoring anything you have to say.

 It's what i've been doing for the past few months.

No I don't have a say in who comes and goes. But I do have a say in how you treat people and what you say to them and where you say it. Go to your own thread to insult people, I'm sure you have read it.
