For millennia, women have entered the red tent to bleed, long before sanitary napkins and tampons, they sat on the ground and returned their blood to the earth. This needs to be celebrated, not hidden as has been the will of the masculine, to bring shame upon women for their bleeding. -Goddess of Sacred Sex (facebook)

If you want to change the world…. love a woman.
Only compassion is therapeutic – because all that is ill in man is because of lack of love. All that is wrong with man is somewhere associated with love. He has not been able to love, or he has not been able to receive love. He has not been able to share his being. That’s the misery. That creates all sorts of complexes inside. -Osho.
Feminism is to blame, clearly. ‘The steady rise in the numbers of women joining the workforce reduced the number of women able or willing to stay at home and cook meals from scratch. To address this social change, there were new developments in labour-saving equipment, and the introduction of convenience food, ranging from an entire meal needing simple heating to snack foods that can be eaten directly from the packaging’. Take the woman out of the kitchen, and BAM, unhappy, sick people.
The encouragement, permission, and invitation from a man to express authentically whatever she’s feeling is a step to amazing foreplay, because she can actually trust you. If some damage happened to us at the hands of a man, as it has for almost every woman, we need to trust that a man can be with our bodies and our yonis without having to fuck us. It’s your hands, heart, lips, spirit that brings healing. ~Naomi Wolf in ‘Vagina’.
