Taboo sex: sadism

Meet the new edition of our immoral history. Last time we wrote about incest, but this time of sadism.

But first explain why do we need this series of texts, as it was not entirely clear to some readers. So, I often say that history is a very fickle thing, the norms of society is also fickle, and what is now considered acceptable, before such was not. With this opinion many may not agree, but then in the course are a real proof of the fluctuations of the norms, which are abundant in history. This is more clearly show the oscillations, of course, porn, sex, and intoxication.

Maybe you have noticed that most people are sincerely convinced that there are any eternal values and eternal «horrors» that the society do not change. However, if you look at a person’s past and try to look at a traditional society from a different angle, it becomes clear that all this is nonsense. Even more interesting seems to us the fact that the rate can vary significantly from country to country, from region to region, from city to city. Even if the analysis of public sentiment the last 5 years in our country, it becomes a little scary how much can change public position on some issues. God knows, but we are interested in this track.

In addition, the category B YS’! assumes that there will be some reasonable information that can be found in some scholarly articles, and historical works. And to learn something new is always interesting, especially if we are talking about taboo topics, because they are trying to get other publications that we think are strange. At first embarrassed to talk about sex, then about politics, and then would be embarrassed to have an opinion. There is nothing cool, just full of oppression and darkness.

The essence

Our guide to legitimate beating friends was popular, I can read it again. However, the very nature of sadism in human culture is much broader than just reflections on the philosophy of the Marquis De Sade. So, the controversial French writer was able to introduce to the masses the idea that the process of violence is able to deliver erotic pleasure, although before him were people who felt exactly the same.

We will not address biological basis of pleasure from causing physical harm to strangers. Suffice it to recall the Milgram experiment, where subjects hit each other a fictitious current, or the experiment, which was conducted in 1971 by American psychologist Philip Zimbardo. If interested in the last case, we recommend reading the book Zimbardo «the Lucifer Effect. Why do good people become villains.» In General, the conclusion is the following: «the Situation, the environment significantly stronger effect on the person in such cases than any personal qualities». In other words, each is inclined to sadism, if it is in certain circumstances. If we accept this assertion as a given, it becomes clear why among a huge number of frightening killers are so many normal people and so few madmen to help. And you may recall the famous Serbian accionista Marina Abramovic, who in 1974 spent, it would seem quite a simple performance, which subsequently became the most terrible in her life. The essence of the performance, which was called «Rome 0», lay in the fact that Abramovich has placed on the table 72 of the object (there were a bunch of things, some of pleasure and others pain), but the artist herself was absolutely passive. The audience had to interact with the object, that is, by the artist. What do you think? First, the audience was interested, hesitated to do something, but the more time passed, the more aggressive became public. Visitors to the Museum began to cut and remove clothing, to aim a loaded gun according to the artist, cutting the body. It lasted all of 6 hours, after which the artist was «revived» and people suddenly began to understand what they were doing some illegal trash together and ran. Such is by nature human. The beast is just one step, and sometimes we are pleased to available monsters.

In any case, we all know that anywhere our sadistic tendencies have not disappeared. They have even evolved into something big. We were able to put on stream the cinema of sadism, which is considered acceptable. We have developed the concept of pain to incredible heights. We are always interested to read about the horrors of our town, one guy has killed his family and hanged himself, than to read about how one man saved the family and extinguished the fire. The real heroes now no one likes, they do not collect their viewers, but his viewers gather video of the Islamic State, is banned in Russia organization where we can contemplate how the flying heads, burning people and make bombs. You might say that the world has become too cruel, but what if we tell you that all of it has always been, man? No, we do not condone this shit, but sex and hell, the violence was linked a long time. However, otherwise it could not be.

Primitive

About any romance in a primitive society speech could not be. But it was really only a plus primitive man. Hard to imagine that people could pass through the period of its formation, if I spent time on wooing and flirting with females. In a previous article we talked about the fact that people lived in families, and sex between members of the same family was not uncommon, and he was perceived as an adequate form of family relations. In addition, many studies show that Patriarchal society is a more recent form of social organization, and primitive tribes were generally matriarchal overtones. This, of course, quite controversial, but not unfounded theory can reveal some aspects of sex of ancient man.

You probably know that man in prehistory was the breadwinner and the female homemaker? Physical qualities made themselves felt. Also in the primitive world, people lived by barter, no credit cards, bitcoins or even gold coins. The very manifestation of love, according to many researchers, was alien not only men, but women tribal communities. The main task of the ancient man to survive, and this requires meat, skins and the like. Most likely the guy just traded hard-won food for sex with some more or less pleasant woman. Prostitution as the norm, then there is the usual mutually beneficial market relations. I don’t think the process of getting pleasure from violence has taken place, for the reason that people lived in perpetual violence, cold, hunger, disease.

Antique

Vice is born of satiety.

– The 120 days of Sodom, So let us turn to another theory, which is close to many minds of the nineteenth century and the present psychologists. Its essence can be described briefly: sexual sadism arose when there were first state. At the very moment when there was the possibility of repletion of the benefits of civilization. Common was among the nobles, had to learn the basics of fun and at some point moved on to more subtle games with their sexy partners. With the usual rape sadism has not much in common. And the ancient era it shows fine.

Luxury and good, full life always leads to some oddities in the person, from the point of view of a hungry and destitute. And always has been. Greeks – living proof. Rich of his time and culture. The most powerful Navy and army, the mighty Commonwealth cities, which is the European and in particular Russian culture. Their myths is a completely different story to talk about, but sexual relations of the Greeks can be described in one sentence: everything is permitted. Despite the progressive, at that time the state system of the Greeks was full of slaves, a good part of which was intended for sexual pleasures.

The ancient guys are not trapped in their sexual fantasies, they are not weighed down by strict dogma, and religion have served as another example of the fact that all of the current deviation is just a different approach to excessive tenderness. The cult of Dionysus, which, besides Greece, is reflected in Thrace and in any other place, where untouched of the Greek, threw wood on the fire. In a crazy, half-drunk dancing people had sex and beat each other, sincerely rejoicing in all this madness, releasing their irrational «I am.»

Dionysism means the liberation of the boundless desire, the unbridled explosion of the dynamics of animal and divine nature; hence in the Dionysian choir man appears in the image of a Satyr, the top God, from the bottom – goat.

– Psychological types, Carl Gustav Jung –I got a little sidetracked from the topic. And I would like to cite a real historical examples of popular sadists of antiquity, of which you probably already know.

Nero

Deserved reputation as a monster and pervert, but did so much for Rome. The first half of his reign may boast of such things as limiting taxes and penalties, facilitating the lives of slaves, the adoption of the part of the freedmen, when the Senate decided again to take away the freedom these guys have. Fought corruption, was not afraid to arrest major public figures for her, denounced Christians who at that time represented a huge threat to the state, has determined to cancel all indirect taxes, but limited the Senate decrease, also abolished fees for marine merchants, and thoroughly settled in Rome, gymnasiums, theatres, baths.

But such a policy that enhances the lives of ordinary Romans did not like the highest class. The result was a plot that played havoc with the entire ruling class of Rome. The mass terror against the senators and the aristocratic families. The originality with which he killed some opponents, is remembered much better than all the good deeds that he did for the eternal city. Finished my history of Nero by suicide. 9 years of the reign of Nero, subsequently cursed all subsequent ages.

Caligula

However, Caligula know more. And all because he is a Prime example of the consequences of absolute power in the hands of an unworthy person. If you want to get closer to what was happening at the court of the Emperor, enough to see the same film Tinto Brass, which made a lot of noise in 1979, and has caused particular resentment in the Vatican. In General, the first Imperial dynasty is remembered by many for the very reason that its representatives possess excessive power, were inclined to sadism, feeling his impunity, completely not realizing that at any moment they could kill with their own Praetorian guard.

The middle ages

Weird, but the stiffness in sex, which generated a total Christianization of Europe, have seriously strengthened the position of sadism in society. Debauchery disappeared, but then came the understanding of mental suffering, shame for the depravity of his body. The dogma of the Church during the formation of Christianity was fragile. On this basis, a large number of cults, the Christian offshoots that tried to link the old order, the pagan beliefs and the teachings of Christ.

The middle ages is remembered not only for the plague or the Crusades, knights and magnificent castles. It was a dark time, where violence over the helpless man was common. The majority of the population took it as a given, because the dogma was said: «the value of human life and suffering mean nothing, but the Kingdom of heaven is so great.» Do not forget that the middle ages gave rise to ingenious devices of torture, many of which were purely sexual in nature. Take «the Cradle of Judas» (the Vigil), which was at the time of the late middle ages a fairly light form of torture. «The cradle of Judas» was used by the court and the Inquisition, was a pyramid, over which hung person. The tip of the pyramid, looking at or in the anus or in the vagina. The point is that the victim (let’s call a spade a spade) some time held their own over the pyramid then the hands loosened and the man slowly fell down, lost consciousness, was in terrible pain. You remember «the Chair is of the Jews» which had a similar engineering solution. It only remains to ask the question was considered whether such torture is the norm in medieval society? I think it was.

The perception of sadism now

With a light filing of the thinkers of the XIX century the attitude towards sadism became too easy. Somehow, psychologists have found that some degree of gaming violence in family relations is only good. And if incest is sanctioned, a manifestation of sadism is evaluated on a personal scale. Physical pain becomes a form of fun that unleashes many people who are prone to sadism. In addition, our culture is very good for a modern human trait: the ability to let off steam. In a world where a lot of ordinary people that are guaranteed not to be able to achieve social status, which is a dream, sadism in bed is the only form a sense of power, without which it is difficult to manage the man. But to treat this phenomenon graciously is not easy, because the loss of control on this front is a direct result of the evening crime news. And there we only see dismembered bodies and destroyed people’s lives.
