Introduction traces the rise of solitary sex and its connection
with the new lust. Shakespeare’s penetrating insights into lust
in his Sonnet 129 set the stage and reveal the lust-violence
Part I makes the case for the new lust and pseudosexuality by
tracing the “lustification” of picture women in the media. The
image of woman, lust-intensified, is used to sell. So everyone
buys it—lust, that is. And we witness the progressive
transformation of the author’s own sexuality into
pseudo-sexuality. Imprinting is a crucial force in this process,
from sexual awakening to his “coming out” into full and
exclusive pseudosexuality (PS) at age 49. The “Psychology of
Lust” reveals the spiritual components of the new lust.
Part II describes how we are in the midst of a powerful, though
unrecognized, pseudo-sexual revolution. The work of gay and
lesbian historians is used to trace the origins and evolution of
the gay culture in American history. The author’s original
analysis of this history surprisingly reveals that the very same
forces shaping and driving homosexuality and the gay culture
have also been shaping and driving “heterosexuality.” The two
tracks parallel each other, as they evolve and are shaped and
driven by these forces.
Lust Virus exposes the delusion in so-called “straight”
sexuality by tracing the historical rise of the new lust and
pseudosexuality and by showing how this is exemplified in his
own personal history and that of others. And this exposes the
delusional thinking across the whole orientation spectrum,
putting us all in the same boat. The cultural seizure of our
sexuality across the board means that our sexuality is “likely
to stay vulnerable to manipulation.” Yes, our so-called
“straight” and “gay” mis-orientations have been manipulated. But
with the common grounds of our pseudosexuality, also come the
common grounds of our recovery. The Berlin Wall of orientational
apartheid turns out to be—pseudo.
In Part III Lust Virus reveals how we’ve become image junkies,
how our image-connection has become the prime carrier of the
lust virus, and how this has been shaping our sexualities. The
role of mankind’s new mis-connection with images is so crucial
to the spread of pseudosexuality that five chapters are devoted
to it. What we thus have in today’s total Image-Connection is
one of the most powerful forces shaping and driving our false
sexualities across the board. This explains the hypnotic and
addictive power of picture-mediated lust, which distorts our
perception of reality and creates a cultural and spiritual
predisposition to pseudosexuality in all its expressions. The
stark realization begins to dawn as to why pseudosexuality and
our addiction to lust are so widespread and all-encompassing,
have become so much the very fabric of our lives, and are
seemingly so impossible to overcome.
Part IV reveals other forces driving pseudosexuality, including
Darwin, Freud, Einstein, Kinsey, the “death” of father, and the
“death” of God.
Chapter 16, Implications for Recovery, is for those infected
with the lust virus who identify with PS and want out. Recovery
from lust and pseudosexuality must be counter-cultural.
Is it possible? What would it entail, and can we survive it?
