2 of 8 – Snippets of Eros – When a “No” Becomes a “Yes”

Dear Earthlings:
The year of wonders is what 2012 is supposed to be.  Yours truly offers snippets of her favorite books.  All on yesterday’s forbidden themes.  Let’s see if their mysteries are revealed.
Eros is a story that staved off the loneliness of her first years in the Caribbean, when she was missing her former Matrias, California and Italy.  
Can a “no” become a “yes”?  That’s one of the main themes.  Many a “no” has turned into a “yes” since time immemorial.  Yet the very question became taboo.  Why?  If we respect a “no” that becomes a “yes,” we will respect a “yes” that becomes a “no.”  Isn’t that a win-win?  A world where love can change our minds is a world where love abounds.
Here are yours truly’s reflections back in 2007.  Eros: A Journey of Multiple Loves, has the full story. 
Eros Cover“Campus culture was increasingly aware of rape, and Stephane and i could not help but notice that the rapist was always male, the raped female.  . . . “There must be a way in which a woman can rape a man” I commented.  And that’s how we came to see our erotic performances, especially those in which I was the initiator, as examples of male rape. . . .
But when a man’s voice says no, his body might be saying yes with a flamboyant erection.  In this case, the man’s voice and his genitals make two opposite statements.  “Which one is more correct?” we wondered.  In the past, rape had been a crime against the woman’s family, often repaired with the rapist marrying the girl” (17).
The narrative continues as Stephane and Gaia bask in their amorous erotic play.  Oh blessed be! 

Dear Earthlings:

Education is the heart of democracy.  And that includes education to love.  It comes in many forms.  Including learning about Eros and journeys of multiple loves.


Eros: A Journey of Multiple Loves was a Lambda Finalist in 2007.  It is now being considered for translation in to Spanish by a press in Madrid.  Access to this memoir would be a great gift to Spanish speakers across the globe.  If you agree, leave a comment and we will let the publisher know.  Gracias!  

Did you enjoy the post?  Let us know!  Yours truly appreciates your attention.  The comments box is open.

Come back!  And stay tuned for more wonders.


Namaste,
