The Sexual Shadow is the set of pre-conscious impulses that stimulate the libido but counter your morality. Dissociation is common in men and seen in the ‘Madonna-Whore Complex’— the categorization of women as either pure sources of love, or as naughty sex objects… but not both.

To stay in this dichotomy robs you of your full integrated expression (AND robs your partners of a full-spectrum sexual experience.) I personally have experienced this conflict for awhile. Recently it came up in my relationship, so I decided I finally needed to confront it…

This episode covers:
– Why dark stuff often shows up in sexuality (And how male and female taboo fantasies complement each other.)
– How to integrate dissociated “dark” archetypes in a way that is safe and constructive
– Perspectives from evolutionary biology and “chaos magick” that surprisingly mirror each other
