“ …arrayed in Purple and Scarlet color, and decked with Gold and Precious Stones and Pearls, having a Golden Cup in her hand full of Abominations and the filthiness of her Fornications: and upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, MOTHER OF HARLOTS, AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH “
( Revelation 17: 1-6 )
Sounds pretty harsh to me, I don’t know what it means but reading that scared the shit out of me when I was kid. But I wasn’t referring to that. I was talking about hoarders. The Oxford Dictionary defines them as “ people who accumulate more than one’s current requirement of food, money, ( gigs ) etc. “ …and sex?
In the 2010 New York Times Best Seller “ SEX AT DAWN, the Prehistoric Origins of Modern Sexuality, “ the authors Christopher Ryan, Ph D and Cacilda Jetha MD argue that in prehistoric times everything was shared, including sex!
“ Anthropologists have demonstrated time and time again that hunter-gatherer societies are nearly universal in their fierce egalitarianism. Sharing is not just encouraged, it’s mandatory. Hoarding or hiding food, for example, is considered deeply shameful, almost unforgivable behavior in these societies. We believe this sharing behavior extended to sex as well. “
That being said, to quote a favorite Beatles song,
“ WHY DON’T WE DO IT IN THE ROAD? “
