Crazy Sex on the Brain: Cultures that Fall into Orgiastic Sexual Obsessiveness Are Ripe for Decay

Sex, sex, sex, sex, and also sex. We live in a paradoxical culture characterized by both a profound Puritanism and a deep lasciviousness, though one may simply be the obverse of the other. Our new Puritans see sex everywhere they look and pursue it remorselessly in theory and doctrine while simultaneously igniting a vendetta against all that is normal and fruitful in the relation between men and women.

The feverish obsession with sex in all its myriad forms and embodiments, as I once wrote, has led to some very bizarre ideas and mind-numbing outcomes, of which gender (or non-biological) self-identification and gender fluidity are among the most conspicuous. The pathology, of course, doesn’t stop there.
