Summer Eclipse

In this photo of Summer Eclipse, I attempted to show a combination of beauty, glamour and female authority. I guided her and other models in their standing, posing, and facial expressions. No more sweetie pies, 'Don't smile!' I would exclaim time and again. The cigar emanates an 'old time businessman' - symbol of authority. The beautiful frilly bikini and pearls are 'feminine divine.' And the pose is pure 'masculine authority' which is not going to be 'masculine' any more. Women are now becoming the authority, and our demeanor must reflect this.


The second issue I will address is the one called 'Boots and Leather,' where we take a look at an aspect of femdom (female domination of males.) Although the males say they are 'into' the boots and leather, they are really saying they are 'into' the female who wears them. They may get a mild kick out of handling the articles themselves, as they remind them of the female, but they get a mega-charge from the woman in them. This is, once again (as are all aspects of female domination) looking to MotherGod as AUTHORITY. Anything that evokes authority - be it a uniform that signifies one in charge - (or cigars which at one time evoked men in power), when coupled with the female, reminds the male of his Mom. Naturally, Mom was at one time authority and discipline, whatever form it took. And that means MotherGod.

Here Autumn Equinox depicts pure dominance, with all symbols pointing to authority and even punishment. She has the thigh-high boots, the latex outfit, all black, and the whip. The pose sets it off. Why are men seeking authority? Why do women prefer this pose over the 'bimbo' look? First, because men are looking for Mother and MotherGod. Second, because women would rather equate with power than passivity. The passivity we've had to take on in the past was due largely to Patriarchal programming as well as institutionalized sexism. It is being shed now, slowly or too fast depending on who's measuring.


Now there's a huge language of articles connected with femdom. There are whips, paddles, chains, locks, restraints, collars, - all instruments of restraint, punishment and the like - which are connected with Mother.

'Toilet slavery,' another aspect of femdom, naturally connects with toilet training by Mom. (There is an absolutely fanatical following for this 'fetish.')

All three of these photos, although they look quite different, are featuring the boots. The boots just jump out of you. They are also a symbol of authority and thigh his are the ultimate. Patriarchy has taken the dominant person - women - and programmed her to comply. This is not the real personality of a woman, and the mask is peeling away quickly.


The man who is attracted to femdom is attracted to feminine authority, which at base is the feminine divine, which means God as Woman. Now if we had legitimate Churches wherein the male could look to women as authority they probably would not be so much femdom! He could wait after Church and shake hands with the Pastor and have a chat with her, and he could seek her out for counseling and volunteer service. This would satisfy his longing to some degree. But because there is no such outlet available, this whole underground movement has been around for a long time, probably since Patriarchy got started.

There are of course, numerous 'fetishes' which can be body parts of the female and any number of other things. There are as many reasons why these get started as there are males. Usually it is connected with early emotional/sexual experiences. Not all of these can be directly traced to Mother, but many are. There are some that simply connect with early memories and first loves, and even negative experiences of sex or lack of sex. Then a fetish is created that the male can't eradicate. Women don't seem to get fetishes, studies show, although obviously they have interests and tastes.


I shall not elaborate on the femdom scene any more than necessary to make my point. The point being that when a male is in femdom he seeks AUTHORITY, DISCIPLINE, RESTRAINT, PUNISHMENT (usually this is mere play acting with little pain or discomfort) and all the things that remind him of Mommy Dearest. Naturally, this is not a conscious decision. It comes out of the wellsprings of deeply rooted and hidden emotional needs.

There is a relatively new aspect of this 'femdom' scene. It is the worshipping of females as physical power symbols. This sprang up only after women became extremely athletic in sports - especially wrestling and bodybuilding. Sometimes these tie in together, as women who were worshipped as bodybuilders are now pursuing wrestling, and from there come paid 'sessions.' Now in the wrestling sessions, you can imagine what happens. A powerful woman turns on a male. They wrestle. He gets sexed up. Where it goes from there is up to the woman. It may or may not end up in sex. Whatever happens, the woman gets paid for the 'session.'


In bodybuilding, it is truly an amazing phenomenon. Things have happened in this muscle game that no one could have imagined. First, beautiful women entered beauty contests, along with the men who showed all their muscles. (The women were given no money, the males a little money. I recall the first Mr. Olympia contests where Arnold received $750. to win. Today, the males get $120,000. The females, by the way, get only $10,000. for Mz Olympia. A horrendous sexist reality.)


All the barriers of beauty have now been broken.

A woman can develop all of herself, including her muscles, and still be accepted as female. Who made the rule that only males could do muscles? Then who made the rule only males could take muscle drugs? Since women make far less money than males in professional bodybuilding, even top champions augment their income by modeling, galleries on sites, webcam interaction, and 'muscle worship' sessions. The men are lining up! This power worship is another aspect of MotherGod. Woman, Thou Art Power!


In the early contests, the women had to be conventionally beautiful, like let us say, Rita Hayworth or Hedy Lamaar or some imitation thereof. They had to have great but not amazing bodies. An average thin girl with a good figure and pretty face could win easily. Now you see a transition. In 1979 there are about two or three contests where women flex muscles, and as soon as that happens, you don't have to be conventionally beautiful and a different sort of woman has a chance. You have black women entering for the first time and those who excel in muscles, but might not be pretty. At first, the prettiest muscle girls win the contests. Soon, that goes by the wayside. Pretty gives way to more and more muscular.


Enter today - 2005. What is reality now? For quite some time a hybrid female has emerged. She is drugged up like the male, she is starving and dehydrated, and at 1 to 3% fat, she has no breasts. So the majority of female champions have to have implants. (Because it helps them win, a costly and dangerous operation considering how little money these women are paid when they do win.) Her face, which might have once been beautiful, is now a shambles. The skin has thickened and has peculiar downward lines. It is covered in acne, concealed by makeup, so her face is all bumps. The face of an angel is now harsh and contorted. But her muscles? They make some blush, because this is not a woman; she is a chemically altered female with both male and female traits. Her voice sounds like a transvestite and her clitoris is two inches long. The muscles, of course, are 'to die for.' And she almost did.



Through their use of power, women have now broken the standards for beauty. The power itself is beauty. Age is also no object. Where Patriarchy controlled the age in which women were considered beautiful (they had to be young) this has been defeated. Now men lust for power. They don't care how women get it - if drugs are used it is alright. They are turned on by the women with the biggest, strongest muscles and by those who show machoism in wrestling and other forms of athletics.


Now thirty years ago, most people would have run away from this creature. But we easily adjust. The men are lining up for worship! What do they see in such a woman? It is POWER. What is power? It is Mother, it is Authority, it is MotherGod!


These amazing women, who have suffered so much, given so much, spent so much time and money, what happens to them? What glory do they get and how much money? Does the business compensate them royally? Do they live on easy street? No. In order to have the privilege of competing, these women must support themselves. Most cannot hold down regular jobs. All their time and energy is spent in the gym and all that goes with competition. They have to do something similar to the women in the sex trade - those God-awful 'sessions.' The lucky ones have internet sites where they sell galleries of photos or live webcam interactions. The others put up with the 'muscle worship.'

'What goes on in these sessions?'

I asked a friend who knows.


'They feel her muscles and worship them.'


'And then what?' I ask.


'And then whatever. Use your imagination .'


But my point here is, men are lining up for these sessions. The women do make a decent living, but all on their own, not from the sexist bodybuilding establishment where resources are reserved for men.





Before I move on with my discourse I would like to address a few issues, because the naysayers are already wailing. People are saying this 'body worship' and 'woman worship' has nothing to do with MotherGod. It is all sex, addiction, perversion, bondage and has nothing whatever to do with spirituality.



Now hold on! Please take a look at the big picture I am seeing, not the one of the individual male to female exchange. In sessions (on the surface) only one thing is happening - gratification for the male and money for the female. But this is not what I am addressing. I am talking about what is happening in the unconscious and not only on an individual basis, but a global scale!


The social reality that I am purporting is this:

MotherGod worship is natural - it is within the marrow of our bones. We are bonded with Mother, who is the first and foremost image of MotherGod. We come out of her egg, then gestate in her womb, and then remain at her breast and her maternal care for years, intimately associated with her. She is Mother, Goddess, God, for a long time. For some, always.


Please put aside the concept of 'horny men - sex' for a moment and see a human need - one that is as deep as the child within, and the need for God. Each human longs for Home, for Center, for Absolute Truth, Love, Power, Harmony, Peace. All these qualities are of God and also of MOTHER. Now humans crave the SOURCE of all goodness, and MOTHER is the symbol of that source. It has been outlawed - banned - reviled - this symbol of Spirituality. It has dug deep into the trenches of hibernation as a legitimate, mainstream Church.

In order to understand my reasoning you have to see the big picture, not the small. This is a mankind that for thousands of years has been told IT CANNOT WORSHIP ITS MOTHER AND IT CANNOT LOOK AT GOD AS ITS MOTHER. Now think of that. Think of a mighty river dammed up and that river is seeking a way to continue, to move on. That river of MotherGod love has turned to alternative ways of worship - when worship in Church is not available. It is the women that can be seen with the eyes. These women now replace what once was MotherWorship and although no one calls it that, IT IS RELIGION.


I know eyebrows will raise, but it is the big picture.
