IN SERVICE OF THE SPIRIT OF SEXUALITY: SETTING BOUNDARIES AS AN ACT OF TRANSGRESSION

Annelise Erasmus

Abstract


In this contribution, the condition of the Spirit of sexuality, which can also be read as a proxy for Spirit found in all spheres of life, is discussed. This Spirit has a specific definition arrived at by merging the most pertinent aspects of spirituality, Rausch, the erotic and Will to Power. It is argued that Spirit is in trouble and that the human rights movement may have inadvertently been one of the reasons for its demise. Optimal conditions for calling forth the Spirit of sexuality as well as the conditions for its weakening are suggested and the actions and philosophies which lead to this weakening analysed. Boundaries as transgression in a society, which insist on openness, are ultimately proposed as a way to rehabilitate Spirit.
