Sex, Sentimentalism and Philosophy

The choices seem to be limited somewhat in our new times. Sex without emotion and emotion without lust, still the only philosophical choices of human experience and existence. And what if these were not the only options? How far and how much can human sentiment be stretched? I wonder. The rules still stay what they have always been...

And yet human emotion is not linear. It does not always have a beginning and an end, but often flows between extremes like an alternating current. Most often, the inner war never truly occurs: it is suppressed, educated and re-educated, sometimes indulged and then punished...

Women continue their submission to either the "whore" or the "mother" and men, to either the "leader" or the "follower". Love is expressed as possession, and sex as domination. The body and mind are in continuous conflict, battling each other for the highest "order", and masking the greater war.

And yet, what if all that were really just another construct...another philosophy manoevred into norm?
