If you were asked, “what is sacred to you?”, what would your answer be? A walk in the woods? Listening to your favorite tunes? Your yoga practice or time at the gym? A five-mile run? As gay, bi or queer men, would your answer be sex? In this series of videos, we propose that sex - our sex, our gay sex - is sacred. And recognizing the sacred nature of what we do with our Erotic Bodies is the first step in countering centuries of being told that we are sinful, impure or, the church’s favorite word, ‘disordered’. Those words have taken their toll on our community and many of us have experienced the shame and trauma that comes with them. Maybe we can generate positivity and healing by beginning to think of our sexual experiences as moments of grace, of blessing, or as opportunities to have deep gratitude for what our bodies give us.
It’s time to take back words and concepts like ‘blessed’, ‘holy’, ‘consecrated’ and ‘sacrament’, to reclaim the truly sacred nature of our desires. In this video, Baptism, we reclaim what it means to be washed clean, to initiate sex through the element of Water. It’s playful, fun, erotic, even sacred time between two lovers.
