Here’s Erwan’s Facebook post from the other day, copied here and posted with his permission (along with a few edits).
Yesterday my wife Jessika posted this graphic on Facebook….and somebody reported her for “pornography.” This world is really filled with utterly pathetic people, who can’t enjoy art, who can’t enjoy beauty, who can’t enjoy pleasure, who can’t enjoy nature, who can’t enjoy freedom—theirs or others; who can’t…enjoy much in life.
You have a body, you were born naked, and you have sexual desires and they are healthy and beautiful. I’m sorry for you if you have learned to feel shameful for having a body and sexual desires, if you have learned to judge and repress them, because you’re going to miss out on a lot in life.
Pornography means visual material containing the explicit description or display of sexual organs or activity, intended to stimulate erotic rather than aesthetic or emotional feelings. Pornography can be extremely disgusting when violence, defilement, and destruction are associated with it, and when indeed all notions of sacredness and deep connection have been removed from the act of physical love.
By posting this artistic expression, Jessika intended to stimulate erotic, aesthetic, emotional and spiritual feelings altogether. Why? Because so many people need to see love, including physical love, in a healthy way again; without shame, and actually with confidence and appreciation…and respect and depth. This is how it should be. It is easy to look at anyone and guess who’s having good sex and who’s not. One of the primary reasons why people are unhappy and depressed in life is because their sexual life SUCKS. And it often sucks not because they don’t have a functional body that can’t do it, but because they’re morally and ethically dysfunctional, along with a warped perception of sexuality and their own body that prevents them from enjoying it. BOOM.
If you can’t stand a simple picture of a couple making love, then probably you have a very poor sexual life, if any sexual life at all, and you’re unable to see the beauty, the liberation and energetic empowerment that a healthy, deep and sacred sexual life can bring. And for this reason you are a sad person. And because you can’t stand others enjoying sex, very confident with their sexual life, you’re utterly pathetic. And I wouldn’t be surprised if, actually, you were one of these many people who secretly consume actual pornography, when nobody’s around. Sexually frustrated people consume pornography. Sexually fulfilled individuals enjoy their body, their sensations, their pleasure and their physical, emotional and spiritual relationship with their partner with grace, honor and respect…and do not need pornography.
Learn to be happy and confident with your own body and your sexuality. You will make the world a better place, starting with your own internal world, which secretly CRAVES for sexual healing and satisfaction. And above all, learn to let others alone and keep your OBSOLETE “morals” at bay.
If you are one of my Facebook “friends” and have issues with people healthily enjoying the gifts of nature, please-please-please do un”friend” me, do un”follow” me, as there’s little chance I could have actually ever met you in person…and if I ever did, I would have zero interest in interacting with you because you might be one these super boring, internally repressed people I avoid like the plague.
Do you hear me? Having an issue with representations of the naked body and sexuality IS having an issue with the naked body and sexuality, and if you’re having an issue with the naked body and sexuality then maybe you are the deviant person?! Yes, maybe YOU are!
I don’t care who you love and how you love. But you’ve got to love and let love, love and let live, or at least live and let love.
“We live in a world where we have to hide to make love, while violence is practiced in broad daylight.” ― John Lennon
Amen, and amen. My 5-day MovNat experience with mon copain Erwan begins right here. Each evening after all the events and awesome paleo dinner, Erwan and I would drive into town to a restaurant parking lot with WiFi, so I could draft the day’s post while he got caught up on business.
- MovNat Day 1
- MovNat Day 2: This aint no picnic
- MovNat Day 3: Not Boot Camp
- MovNat Day 4: Integrating and combining skills
- MovNat Day 5: The Gauntlet and a Wrap
I was one of the first people Erwan contacted when he decided to establish MovNat as an international natural movement phenomena that involves challenging movement over ground, in the trees, over rocks and other obstacles, carrying heavy things, swimming, underwater endurance, and even hand-to-hand self-defense combat. Here’s a post about our first encounter in 2009: We Live in a Zoo. And here’s Ewan in the original 3-minute video that made everyone insanely crazy and excited. You’ll probably watch it more than once.
I can honestly say that Erwan Le Corre is among a very small handful of the coolest people I’ve ever enjoyed the pleasure of befriending. He doesn’t have a fake cell in his body, he’s impeccably honest, thoughtful and kind—though immensely confident, steadfast, determined.
He walks the talk…barefoot.
