Not for nothing, but the latest fruits of the sexual revolution are even more bizarre than most of us imagined.
We knew things would get a little freaky, but maybe we didnt know it would involve an upswing in polygamy, amorous activities with plastic women, or cuddling sessions with electric candelabra.
But that is the state of affairs as we approach Valentines Day this year.
We shouldnt be surprised. When a society deifies sexual expression, it deifies a jealous god who will not be satisfied until every biological, social, and moral norm is overturned.
Consider the upswing in open marriages. In a recent edition of The Chronicle Review, Carrie Ichikawa Jenkins, a British-Canadian philosopher, argues that polygamy should be normalized. Jenkins practices polygamy (which she calls polyamory) with her husband, Jonathan Jenkins Ichikawa, and her boyfriend, Ray Hsu.
Jenkins and her husband have been open about their polygamy since July 2011, shortly after their wedding. Jenkins notes that people are judgmental, lecturing her for taking part in something they consider unnatural and immoral.
But Jenkins responds that polygamy is quite natural and moral.
She argues that polygamy is the most natural relationship of all, as can be seen in the fact that very few animal species are monogamous. Not even swans are monogamous, she says. Not even swans.
She argues that polygamy is a moral way of life, with open marriages consisting of nothing more than ethical individuals being faithful to their multiple true loves.
Or, consider the emergence of sexual love with multiple sex dolls. Recently, The Guardian ran a story on James, a 58-year-old from Atlanta, Georgia. James, it turns out, is married to a human woman, Tine, but is also the owner of four life-size silicon sweethearts.
Two years ago, James wife left the home briefly to care for her ailing mother. Months later, she returned to find her husband surrounded by four new ladies, remarkable for their physical dimensions and their willingness to remain silent.
In short order, she learned that James had been dating the robotstaking them for picnics, watching television together, and engaging in, er, nocturnal activities with them.
James plastic princesses are the fruit of an emerging industry of animatronic, AI-enabled silicon sexbots. These sexbots are custom-made, complete with silicon body parts, heating and lubrication systems, and changing facial expressions.
The idea of sex robots is not new. In 2007, futurist David Levy published Love and Sex with Robots, in which he argued that robotic love would soon be embraced in the West.
In a recent interview, Levy argued that robotic love has many merits, as it could make prostitution obsolete, teach humans a greater variety of lovemaking positions, and provide pedophiles an outlet for their desire.
Look. One has to accept that sexual mores advance with time, and morality with it, Levy said in a recent interview. Nothing can be ruled out.
Finally, consider the curious case of erotic love with multiple light fixtures.
Recently, Inside Edition ran a story on Amanda Liberty, 33, of Leeds, England, who married her favorite chandelier. Liberty, who identifies as objectum sexual, says she just knew she would marry Lumiere the moment she first saw her on eBay last year.
In spite of the marriage, Liberty remains in an open relationship with her collection of more than 20 other lighting fixtures:
None of my chandeliers are jealous of each other. They understand that I love them all for their different personalities. For example, I love kissing and cuddling Lumiere, but I sleep with Jewel every night, as she is portable and very nice to cuddle.
Relentlessly true to the inner logic of the sexual revolution, polygamy, sexbots, and object-sex are part of the relentless drive to redefine marriage, sex, and romantic love. We are hard-wired for sex, according to this logic, but society must not cast judgment on our choice of sexual union.
Other trends include Ivy League attempts to normalize sex with animals (bestiality) and dead people (necrophilia).
But make no mistake. These latest iterations of the sexual revolution are unnatural and immoral. Their public emergence might tell us what is happening culturally, but it cannot tell us what we ought to do.
For the ought, we must turn, as our Founding Fathers did, to the Judeo-Christian view of humanity and sexuality. From it, we learn that God created human beings in his image and likeness, providing us with spiritual and moral guidance so that we could flourish and experience lifes goodness.
Central to this moral guidance is the truth that marriage and family are the core social units of society. Together they form the most important context in which children are shaped to understand themselves and their relationship with the world.
So, on Valentines Day this year, lets make clear to our children and to society that marriage is between one man and one woman, and that any departure from that norm will leave us empty and pitiful in our attempts at sexual fulfillment.
“Polygamy, Robot Sex Are Consequences of the Sexual Revolution”
No, consequences of frigid women.
That’s not polygamy. Polygamy IS natural, although it leads to civilizational problems.
They are practicing polyandry, which is unnatural - because although two or more women can bond to one man, two men with one woman will lead to killing, sooner or later.
No. Jenkins fornicates with her boyfriend making her an adulteress and her husband a cuckold. Were she married to both she would be practicing polyandry.
We're supposed to be better than animals. Supposed to be. Some animals are also cannibals; should we strive for that too? Humans are different than all other animals, and with our intellect should strive to be above animalistic urges. What a bunch of sickos out there; they shouldn't lecture to others to join their ranks.
That’s right - back in the 50s, robots never had sex....
Yep agreed. This is dangerous ground, to start comparisons of animals to people, and then implying that people should behave like animals..
Animals behave in many ways which should not be encouraged in humans.
“she learned that James had been dating the robotstaking them for picnics, watching television together, and engaging in, er, nocturnal activities with them.”
Ok, doinking one is one thing. But going on a picnic with one, or hanging out with it is just wrong. It really defeats the whole purpose.
Why is it if we ‘Men’ ‘fall for’ a blow up doll we are declared to be preverts(thanks A Bunker) of the first degree.
Yet a female falls for a robot or even a piston driven device and they are considered to be progressive or modern.
No gap here....
So, apparently the ‘only’ way a man is to be ‘relaxed’ is either self gratification OR partner with another male.
Of course, ‘Snap on tools’ are not just restricted to the repair shop
“Jenkins practices polygamy (which she calls polyamory) with her husband, Jonathan Jenkins Ichikawa, and her boyfriend, Ray Hsu.”
Should have stuck with creating TQM Charts.
“No, consequences of frigid women.”
Or ugly, loud-mouthed, feminist females. Why would any man desire the average college educated, so-called woman today? A blow-up doll or a robot would be a huge step up.
I see no difference between polygamy and polyandry.
Do you actually believe that women in polygamous marriages dont get jealous and hate the other wives?
... until another "true love" comes along ... in the form of the Sixth Fleet.
Some silicone sister with her manager's mister told me I got what it takes.
Or tarts who’ve taken a turn on the tallywhacker train too many times.
She's actually right about the terminology. Polygamy is one man with several wives. Each marriage is still between one man and one woman, and the children know who their parents are without DNA testing.
