Erotic Morality

“Erotic morality reaches deep into the heart and into the community for guidance. It allows time for wisdom to be revealed. It doesn’t define itself against desire or pleasure. It is woven tightly into a whole fabric of values rooted in an affirmation of life and a love of one’s own soul. It is comfortable and in no way exploits or condemns. We discover this erotic morality by knowing our life story well, owning up to our prejudices and negative influences, and embracing our past wounds and failures…it is only in the bittersweet embrace of life that we can find our way to pleasures that complement our moral sensitivity.”
