Why is this called “integral” sexuality?

I’ve been studying integral theory for a while – it’s basically the philosophy of Ken Wilber and I’ll oversimplify by saying that it helps you see things from a number of different perspectives.

This blog looks at sexuality from lots of angles (gee, why is everything a double entendre when you’re writing about sex?) It’s informational but also about how sex and relationships fit into living a great life.

It seems that we’ve focused a ton on how men and women are different in their approaches to love and sex. Clearly the physiological differences are pretty important and our culture (all the world’s cultures) have taught women and men very differently about sex.

Every comedian has a bit about how different men and women are. But are we focusing so much on that that we’re losing what we share? That we have this potential for pleasure together that is very different from what we can have apart? That we can support each other in utterly fundamental ways?

So this is integral in that it’s looking at sex from women’s point of view and men’s point of view and it’s about physiology and love and even spirituality through sex. And it’s thinking about envisioning a world of sex and love that’s not a zero sum game – where the more I get what I want, the more you get what you want, too.

Possible?
