Deep Throat Stole the Sexual Revolution

Look and you will find. It’s a law that’s inevitable. I’ve been looking for a long time, trying to find out what happened to the Sexual Revolution of the 1970s, and now I know. It all fits into place. I watched a documentary on the Sundance Channel called Inside Deep Throat.

Deep Throat stole the Sexual Revolution. Made in 1972 in the heat of American social upheaval Deep Throat, a “revolutionary” pornographic film became the sexual revolution. This porn flick was an automatic, instinctual patriarchal response to humanity’s deep urge toward authentic evolutionary liberation, unification and relationship. For women this had to include a casting off of the age-old male ownership, occupation and exploitation of their bodies, a dangerous and deadly notion to men in power.

I believe actions speak as loudly as words. Looking at the actions women took during the so-called Sexual Revolution you can see what changes they wanted concerning their bodies and lives. It’s about body-ownership.

First women burned their bras. This is significant because it was the human female who (by leaving estrus and developing the menstrual cycle) initiated intimate personal sexual relationship by making sex possible without reproduction. It was woman who eroticized her breasts for her personal lover. Bra burning was an act of reclamation.

Women let body hair grow. Hair Peace was a new phenomenon of the times. Divorcing themselves from beauty shops and hair stylists, make-up, and the wild caprices of fashion, women made a sensual statement with clothing of their own ethnic, body-liberating design.

Revolutionary females in the 1970s traded the restrictive confines of monogamous patriarchal marriage for an open live-in sexual partnership without a written contract. Women demanded reproductive freedoms, which in America they received and have been fighting to keep ever since. Women wanted to define their own sexuality, and not have it rigidly defined for them by men. (There were some important gains during this time for women concerning education and work opportunities, although today in America women still work for significantly less than men.)

Liberalization and liberation are not the same. One implies tolerance of views, the other emancipation from slavery and enemy occupation. Sexual liberation for women means the end of male power as it has expressed itself with females for thousands of years.

Think about it. Women wanted sexual liberation; what they got was Deep Throat, a manmade pornographic movie that liberalized sex by making a woman giving a man a remarkable blow job the centerpiece of the revolution. Fellatio, oral stimulation of the penis, co-opted the Sexual Revolution. You can see the direction the revolutionary energies were detoured into, and who it would ultimately benefit.

Where has all of this taken us? Into a massive, ever growing, ever male-liberalizing, ever woman-degrading, dehumanizing (for both sexes), socially and sexually female enslaving multi-billion dollar pornographic industry that moves farther and farther into the realm of common, everyday, socially accepted mass entertainment. What does this role do to the overall image of the human female?What does it do to her psyche and soul to be reduced to a trio of orifices with tits and an ass? What does it do to the human race? This is not a moral judgement about pornography or oral sex, it’s a statement about the wrong use and exploitation of sexual energy and power; it’s about the sexual degradation and exploitation of one to the profit of another. It’s about the domination and wrong use of sexual power.

It’s why the real Sexual Revolution is still a Female Revolution. A Sexual Revolution for the twenty-first century has to be a new casting off of patriarchal ownership and exploitation of female sexuality, on women’s own terms. The Sexual Revolution of today wants and needs men who burn to cast off the confines of a patriarchal system that now seeks to exploit all humanity, and the earth. What patriarchy does to a woman’s body, it can do to the world.
