Ritual And Release

Here's another collection of festival and sensual scenes. I love the contrast between the two, how context can change a near-naked body from an object of traditional reverence into an object of primordial lust. These things are deeply wired in us. On an instinctual level, we need both sexuality and ritual.

Not only do we need both sexuality and ritual, but the two are themselves deeply interconnected. Most ancient ritual (Hindu, Buddhist, Shinto, Taoist) has many elements of stylized sexuality and sexual intercourse, in all its diverse variety, can be sacred ritual too!
