POST 7: TACTICS OF THE “HORNY” BEAST WITHIN

Welcome back! From my last post, just to remind you, I mentioned how the body employed either one of two tactics to attain five essential elements for making babies – namely: (i) the “search and seize” and (ii) the “advertise to acquire” methods. Knowing exactly which of these tactics is being employed can be achieved by identifying the impact of the environment on the subject body – whether that subject is human or animal. To truly appreciate the strength of this proposition, however, you must first review human sexuality in its most primal form, i.e. when humans innocently roamed the Earth naked, aeons ago. This perspective is paramount because it removes much of the social variables that came afterwards, due to physical and social evolution. Hence, I will expand on these tactics in this context first, then expand on the nature of these tactics in a modern day context.

-Identifying Primal Sexual Tactics
“Proactive erections”, the first of my key concepts that I’d like to present, can be explained in a few different ways. I have chosen to explain it to you in comic and discussion form so that you could better imagine the mechanisms at play, in this context. N.B. The following comic (Comic 7.1) is meant to be taken light-heartedly, so in no way is it meant to be taken literally or offensively.

Comic 7.1: This is an untold story of Adam and Eve and their good ol' neighbor Steve.

From the comic, as simple or strange as it may seem, I demonstrate how early man would have utilized both the “search and seize” as well as the “advertise to acquire” methods for attaining the five elements necessary for reproduction. In panels 4 and 5, for example [see Figure 7.1], we see Adam “searching” for Eve and then capitalizing on his discovery of her. In panels: 15, 16, and 17, on the other hand, we see that although Adam and Steve are both unaware of Eve’s presence, Adam’s body still acts so as to attract Eve – by “advertizing” both a larger penis and a more vibrant libido than that of Steve. In this way, Adam is able to trump the physically superior Steve, in the mating game.

Figure 7.2: Adam's body, in the presence of the physically superior Steve, “advertizes” a more vibrant libido (panel 15, i.e. top) so as to “attract” the on looking Eve, for copulation (panels 16 and 17, i.e. middle and bottom, respectively).

Yes; I know what some of you are thinking … “This comic is offensive to literal believers of the Book of Genesis (a.k.a. The First Book of Moses) and is also demeaning to women, etc.” Like I said before, it’s not meant to be taken literally. Instead, Adam represents early man while Eve represents early woman. Then, of course, there are those of you reading who would be asking questions along the lines of:

  1.  wouldn’t Adam think he was gay or bi when he noticed his erection while addressing Steve?
    And
  2.  wouldn’t Eve think Adam was gay after seeing him erect while standing near Steve? And
  3.  why would Eve be so shallow as to simply choose to “play” with a man with an apparently bigger “package?”

The answers to these questions stem from the connotations pertaining to the Garden of Eden, mainly, innocence due to ignorance. Question (i), to demonstrate, is answered with a simple “NO” because Adam in Eden represents humans at a time when sexual interaction between people was governed not by the mind but by the body – or in other words, instinct. This means that even if “Adam” did notice any of his erections, chances are he would not have questioned their function most likely because he lacked the intelligence to do so – this appears to be the case with animals today. Fair enough, you may be wondering, but then why don’t Adam and Steve “get it on” in panel 15 (see Figure 7.3)? The answer to this question is again, due to instinct (the body) and the mind. Remember, [human] sex in our own era is typically a voluntary act – we choose who to have sex with and how we want to have sex because our minds allow us to do so. Adam, on the other hand, would have not engaged in any sexual activity unless, his instinct perceived to have come into possession of the five necessary elements of sexual reproduction – which can only happen when Adam notices Eve.

Figure 7.3: Adam and Steve, as shown here (i.e. panel 15), will not have “got it on” because copulation (in such a primal era) would have been instinctually initiated and therefore reliant on the acquisition of the five necessary elements of sexual reproduction. In other words, Adam (and Steve, for that matter) could not have initiated sex at will because the earliest humans would have lacked the will-power to do so. Instead, instinct would have driven Adam (or any other primal man) to have sex only when Eve (or any other woman) appeared to be in front of him.

instinct would have driven Adam (or any other primal man) to have sex only when Eve (or any other woman) appeared to be in front of him.

Given all that I’ve said, so far, questions (ii) and (iii) can be answered, as follows. First of all, Eve would not think Adam is “gay” or “bi” because in the “Garden of Eden”, “Eve”, like “Adam”, is not intelligent enough to question the reason behind Adam’s erection. All she knows, instead, is that she “desires” to be with Adam or Steve because her instinct perceives that they possess the essential reproductive elements lacking in her own body. Given that then, question (iii) can be answered by saying that Eve is in no way shallow for choosing Adam over Steve because of “package” size. Instead, it was only natural that Eve pursued Adam’s larger package, rather than that of Steve’s, because bigger, it seems, often translates as better, in nature – people have always known this, hence, penile and breast enlargement surgery.

Obviously, women today are a lot more sophisticated than “Eve” or their primeval ancestors,
in the sense that penis size no longer completely determines a man’s worth (or at least I’d/we’d like to think). However, it is interesting to note that scientific research has shown that many women today, still involuntarily fixate on a man’s groin area before any other of his body parts. Human instinct, therefore, has not exactly let go of its primal past despite the generational development of the human mind.

Okay, I think that’s enough for this post. Obviously the key point today is that a man’s erection served not simply as a tool for transporting sperm to women but also served to attract women in primeval times. Thus, what looks like “gay desire” in men today, is in fact, an instinctual habit which evolved to attract primeval women, who may have been looking at a group of primeval men. Really, there’s a lot more to say about this matter so I’ll continue with this in my next post. See you then and thanks for reading!
