Georgiy Sergatskiy Illustrations by Ruslan Agirba SYNOPSIS The book is a systemized compilation of comments by philosophers, writers, poets, psychologists and amorous worshippers dedicated to the hidden and shameful side of sexual love.
The collection tackles such existential topics as soul, lust, shame, attachment, loneliness and death. It accentuates conflict between lust and conscience generated by anogenital character of sexual intercourse, which gives reason to the advocates of universal justice to maintain that the seamy side of love is hatred.
A thorough insight into this contradiction brings a profound understanding of the less obvious facets of gender interrelation, starting with a grand lie permeating the foreplay and the intercourse itself and ending with fury of jealousy. A common thread running through the book is an idea that the notion of goodness is incompatible with lust which generates the intention to protect sexual intercourse from the prying eyes of others and excessive curiosity towards it. Sensitive persons, however, may feel that coition is a source of moral disease and dislike towards other bearers of the same sin.
The present anthology is dedicated to popularization of the ideas of S. Freud and his fellow-thinkers who took the liberty to expose sexual love as a crime against conscience and made a breakthrough into the innermost shadowed corners of human psyche. Quotations in each section are organized in accordance with the following approach: The central subjects are furnished with commentaries of the prominent scientists and religious leaders to provide both ministerial and scientific views.
