Blogging As Erotica Revolution?

Thanks to one blogger, I was forced to remember the rukus with D.H. Lawrence: Lady Chatterley's Lover: 45 Years Later. Which makes me ponder the whole banning of adult materials, of which erotica is but one example.

Thanks to another blogger, I was then forced to consider "Is it possible that the opposition to pornography and censorship of books is rooted in the David syndrome?" That post puts the discussion/battle into yet another perspective.

While I cannot profess to know all the "why's" or motivations, I am certain that I do not want my erotica limited. I hope that by reading, I will some how be educated enough to find not just an understanding of the 'opposition,' but of a way to end the threat.

Given my inability to provide you, yet another blog reader, with any concrete information, I will instead leave you with some words by D.H. Lawrence:

"It is no good casting out devils. They belong to us, we must accept them and be at peace with them."

"The tragedy is when you've got sex in the head instead of down where it belongs."

"We don't exist unless we are deeply and sensually in touch with that which can be touched but not known."

"We are almost always guilty of the hate we encounter."

"Pornography is the attempt to insult sex, to do dirt on it."

...somewhat interesting are those lines, all on their own... just what did Lawrence think of erotica & human sexuality, anyway...?

(I'm still not sure what this whole blog will be about... I imagine it's going to take some time to find my way. I hope you'll stick around to see what it will become...)
