It has been suggested that the experience of consensual sex is the experience of God.

It is doubtful that one can understand the experience of God if one does not understand the experience of sex.

On this view, the more sex the better, because more sex is more God. And the better we get at sex, the better we get at God.

Feel-good spirituality is feel-God spirituality.

Perhaps pleasure is holiness.

And perhaps the most important book in the Bible is the Song of Solomon.

A work by the Italian baroque sculptor Gian Lorenzo Bernini (1598-1680) may be relevant here. Sited in an out-of-the-way location in Rome, it is called "The Ecstasy of St Theresa".

A good image of this curious artwork can be found online here.

Or, a detail from a slightly different angle here.

In full frontal view here.


And a two-angle collage here.

I've never looked at the Song of Solomon before tonight. I haven't read the whole thing - only skimmed it so far, but how poetic it appears to be! I'm putting it high on my list of things I need to read. (Your blog couldn't have come into my life at a better time.)
