Sex in Ancient Greece…

While browsing You Tube I found this presentation talking about sex in ancient Greece. I was especially of course interested in the description of prostitution. I was struck by how little things have changed and again by how much, sadly; things have changed. We still have a multi layered industry as in ancient Greece (something not celebrated enough within activism) but we have lost the appreciation of sex work and no longer understand the sacred and healing nature of sex. We have also lost the acceptance of sexual diversity and instead want to place everyone in safe little boxes ie gay, straight, bi, trans etc etc. I think it is sad that we no longer understand that pleasure is not something to feel guilty about. Monotheism really has damaged mankind and our relationship to each other and to the earth.
