Frenchman and MovNat Founder Erwan Le Corre Gives Some Americans a Needed Moral Lesson in Being Prudish Little Crybaby Children

I don’t do NSFW (not safe for work) warnings. If you don’t work around other adults, get a real job or start your own company.

Here’s Erwan’s Facebook post from the other day, copied here and posted with his permission (along with a few edits).

Sexy Time
 

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.

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.

    If a drawing of a Satyr boning a hot chick is wrong, then I don’t want to be right.



  4. yien on November 23, 2013 at 14:01

    Facebook is just another forum where so called adults who believe in imaginary friends get to put there world view on top of yours. Better to vote with feet. The world is managed by these people, and owned by people who cynicslly manipulate them.



  5. Ronald Pottol on November 23, 2013 at 14:16

    I’m with you, but it’s going to be a long fight, nursing babies are barely tolerated there.

    Sigh.



  6. Steven on November 23, 2013 at 16:01

    Have you ever read Dune, by Frank Herbert?

    There is a part where Paul has to prove he is “human” and not an animal. It basically comes down to animals do the knee jerk thoughtless thing. Humans will first understand something and then react.

    Take what you may from that lesson. frank Herbert was right in my opinion. e are surrounded by animals.



  7. Richard Nikoley on November 23, 2013 at 18:50

    “nursing babies are barely tolerated there.”

    What do I always say? America is solid proof that you ought never allow a bunch of Puritans to get in a boat.



  8. Richard Nikoley on November 23, 2013 at 18:52

    “If a drawing of a Satyr boning a hot chick is wrong, then I don’t want to be right.”

    Ingramatic!

    It’s weird because it’s a faun with a woman.

    Did you take a hit, Andre? Fess up.



  11. Dennis on November 24, 2013 at 18:21

    Plenty of judgement of other people in this man’s writing.



  12. Leo Desforges on November 24, 2013 at 07:14

    Quality rant, erwan. Facebook is the ultimate safe haven for cowards and internet superheroes.



  13. Leo Desforges on November 24, 2013 at 07:15

    And nice drawing. I wish my balls were that smooth.



  14. CCM on November 24, 2013 at 09:56

    Regarding couple: is that a visual of genesis 6 and Nephilim? Folks are wondering if that is how Rh negative blood type got into the human population. The mating of different human species.



  15. bornagain on November 24, 2013 at 10:48

    Looks like too much hard work to me – I’d rather put the effort into a gym routine.



  16. Tyro on November 24, 2013 at 11:35

    Porn can be part of a healthy sex life, alone or with another person or people. Other than that, I tend to agree. I shared it on Facebook with the following:

    NOTE TO FACEBOOK: Yes, this is pornography. It is also art. Sooner or later you’re going to have to change your policies. Now would be nice – people will just keep reposting these things until you capitulate or are overwhelmed.



  17. LeonRover on November 24, 2013 at 12:30

    In Occitan Provence – as also in Spain – there is a tradition of siesta.

    Debussy wrote a piece about the naughtinesses done during Siesta

    “Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune”

    (Anyone can find it on utube.)

    Sounds like this guy needs to be more on the bottom with his wife. Good truths, but ya know what I’ve learned? When you’re name calling and using aggressive words towards someone it usually reflects yourself at a point along your path t some point. My guess is that the writer of this article, has been sexually repressed somehow during his life and still feels angry/upset about it. But I could be wrong. Just saying, have compassion, show compassion to people who are repressed. We are all on the cosmic universal journey to balancing the feminine masculine, lets speak our truth without polluting it with negative connotations to where people are in there life. We are all in this together homies. Bless life.



  19. Richard Nikoley on November 24, 2013 at 16:48

    “Sounds like”

    Thanks for letting me know you’re a moron fucktard in the very first two words.

    “ya know what I’ve learned?”

    No. And I dispute your premise.

    “it usually”

    Moron fucktard talk. You don’t know, you’re lying, trying to get people to buy it.

    “My guess”

    My runny shit. The difference is I don’t peddle it.

    “has been sexually repressed”

    Who say’s that, except someone with his or her own hammer (sexual repression) and everything henceforth is a nail?

    “But I could be wrong.”

    You could have also just shit your fucking mouth.

    “Just saying”

    That’s a lie.

    “We are all”

    Go fuck yourself. I want nothing to do with you ever. You ever end up on my spaceship, and it’s out the airlock with you.

    “lets speak our truth”

    Liar. “Our”

    “We are all in this together”

    Go fuck yourself.



  20. Karen on November 24, 2013 at 19:03

    Ha ha! Richard Nikoley – Talk about a rant!! Exemplary! First of all, anyone who posts hours of footage as if he were in a Calvin Klein underwear ad, has some issues he’s trying to make peace with his body. And if he needs to advertise his proclivity for shaved genitalia (Pan and girl), he might have some juvenile issues to work out as well. Anyone who has had to work hard with their body to make a living will not have this romantic delusionary attachment to their bodies. Yes, it feels amazing to have a young functional fit body. What a blessing. I have been blessed with both, wild fucking and a young strong fit body. Do some good with yours, not criticize people because they aren’t fucking or moving the way he thinks they should be….how sanctimonious.



  21. miss-tique on November 24, 2013 at 20:35

    Yay to sexual liberation and images of lovemaking! I agree with parts of this but karen has a point. when you point a finger you have 3 pointing back.

    And yes, the porn industry is way problematic in the ideas it sells us about sexuality, about men, about women, women’s pleasure and women’s bodies. similarly, the puritanical values this country is carrying (with objectifying hyper-sexualization in tow) is doing terrible things to our ability to relate to ourselves and each other. These are systemic problems that go way beyond porn to how we relate in general to the feminine and to ourselves as a part of nature. I can’t help but notice the hairless vagina shown here is very much in keeping with the systemic non-human-as-animal and systematically infantilizing images women’s bodies in of porn. It is one of the major reason that young (and older) women are largely ashamed of their diversity of naturally perfect vaginas. The narrow beauty ideal that is popular in porn is mirrored in this image of a hairless white woman who is all muscle no fat except on her breasts…. Don’t get me wrong, she looks like a beautiful healthy woman (who is freshly waxed or has chosen to make pubic hair removal a major part of her life), but not divergent from the images we already see that present a very narrow and limiting scope of what is normal or healthy or beautiful, when there are so many kinds of beautiful women, not all fitting into a well muscled beauty ideal that leaves women thinking that a woman having a six pack and no thigh fat is somehow the ideal of health and femininity. I know several women who have become infertile by working out enough to fit this beauty norm.



  22. miss-tique on November 24, 2013 at 20:42

    …all this to say lets not get too self righteous without doing something really transformative. this does not qualify.



  23. Richard Nikoley on November 24, 2013 at 21:27

    “Plenty of judgement of other people in this man’s writing.”

    Absofuckickinglutely.

    I’ll bet you didn’t think of that yourself. Are you one of those follower types who like a little chicky birdy only knows anything because it was regurgitated and fed to you?

    If you didn’t make judgments—including of other people—every day, you would be dead. And that’s why you’re a dismissible moron. You can’t even grasp a core essence of success in life…judgment.

    “Judge, and prepare to be judged.” – Google it

    Moron.



  24. Richard Nikoley on November 24, 2013 at 21:29

    “anyone who”

    Karen? You’re a fucking moron. Anyone who ever uses that is encephalic and worthy of summary dismissal without a second glance.



  25. Richard Nikoley on November 24, 2013 at 21:37

    Moreover, Karen, the essential difference is that Erwan’s post is entirely general.

    …Which makes you a moron as you take it personally when not intended, and then attack him personally with assumptions that are so laughable to his friends it’s like….well, like I said: fucking moron. There is no question that there are people exactly as he describes.

    Since neither he nor I know you, there’s no way to tell why it is that you took it personally when it was entirely an “if the shoe fits” deal….or, is that it?

    How about come clean? So do you enjoy the drawing? If not, can you explicate why not? Do you harbor religious beliefs and if so, which ones? Etc.

  27. Vic on November 25, 2013 at 04:15

    Viewing explicit sexual content in an office environment can lead to dismissal and is against most company’s IT policies that you sign when joining, so doing it is a breach of contract. I understand that the reason is to prevent sexual harassment, but I don’t like this ban too much. In that context I think NSFW warnings are good and useful.



  28. Mike on November 25, 2013 at 11:23

    “If you don’t work around other adults, get a real job or start your own company.” – I’m a high school English, Digital Media, and Film teacher and you can go fuck yourself asshole.



  29. Richard Nikoley on November 25, 2013 at 12:36

    Mike:

    As a high school teacher I would hope that you brush up on your sense of _context_ so as to have some idea of when and when not to take something exactly literally.

    Take “asshole,” for instance. It’s quite impossible to take literally. See what I mean?

    Cheers.



  30. Justin Wisor on November 25, 2013 at 12:47

    Love this…Richard, I doubt you pay attention much to the PUAs since your married, but this is a lot of what the Daygame people advocate like Alan Roger Currie, Sasha Daygame, James Marshall etc. Any opinion?



  31. Richard Nikoley on November 25, 2013 at 13:27

    Can you give me a synopsis of what day game is (I understand the bare gist) and how this relates? Then I’ll offer and opinion.



  32. Justin Wisor on November 25, 2013 at 14:22

    Apologies for the vagueness. They emphasize being very forward in sexual intent and never manipulating women to get sex because both parties are usually DTF if honest with each other. They are all for going up to random women you find attractive and expressing your sexual desires as a man and then respecting a woman’s decision of your offer. No tricks, no ‘game’ per say, just human animalism at its finest just as many other animals behave. I hope we’ll get there one day so future generations don’t have to suffer the shame brought upon youth who even think of sex thanks to feminism, religious zealots, etc.

    A little bit off topic, but I read somewhere or maybe in a podcast how you, in your mid-20s, started to actually read the works of history’s most famous philosophers. Any works/people in particular you think a 20 yr old like myself should read to really get some perspective on how to be the best damn human animal I’ve been designed to be…besides your blog of course 😉



  33. Heidi Pungartnik on November 26, 2013 at 00:44

    “Pornography can be extremely disgusting when…”
    While (I think) agree with your overall point, this is where I stopped reading. Talking about pornography in a positive light and including this sentence just makes you slighly less judgemental than everyone else.



  34. the twisted melon on November 26, 2013 at 01:55

    I’d say Erwan & Richard are a pair of cunts that wouldn’t be very enjoyable company for anyone except maybe each other. (Assuming that they are two persons, not just the one.)
    “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.”
    This is not a simple picture of a couple making love. It is a depiction of an unnatural union between a nephilim and a human, which makes it neither healthy or sacred. And it certainly isn’t beautiful. It isn’t pornographic but it is disturbing and so are Erwan and ‘Richard’. And honestly, if I had ever been a facebook friend of Erwan’s, I certainly would have unfriended him long ago. Stuck up wanker.



  35. the twisted melon on November 26, 2013 at 02:02

    Fit body though. Video was great.



  36. Joshua on November 26, 2013 at 06:11

    I wanna see hooves!



  37. butterfly on November 26, 2013 at 09:01

    I’m going to go ahead and disagree with a lot of what this person said. While I DO agree that sexuality and the human body are incredible and beautiful magical things, and pure and simple nudity is something that people should be able to be around without issue. This picture is not pure and simple nudity, it’s a picture of people fucking. The fact that it is also a beautiful piece of art does not change the subject matter.

    “I don’t do NSFW (not safe for work) warnings. If you don’t work around other adults, get a real job or start your own company.”
    The people in your place of work have not CONSENTED to look at your sexually oriented content. Unless they have, in which case you work at a rare and amazing place. Non-consensual sexual activity is never ok, including non-consensual voyeurism and exhibitionism.
    The whole reason this person wrote this lengthy article is a big boo-hoo because his wife’s picture got taken down. Hiis suggestion to find a new place of work if your co-workers aren’t interested in seeing people making love when they walk by your desk is childish, and HE is the one accusing people of not being adults.

    “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.”
    Some people who have perfectly healthy sex lives prefer to keep it private. It is what works for them, and turns them on, and the exclusivity makes the sex act all the more special for those people. He is essentially yucking their yum in a very insulting way.

    “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.”
    Oh really, you think everyone who enjoys sex in a healthy way doesn’t also enjoy pornography? I am an active member of the kink community, and make love on a regular basis. I am actively cultivating healthy sexual relationships in my life. I love my beautiful body, and I love sharing it with those I love. Guess what? I also like porn! I am not one of those individuals who likes to keep it private; I really like watching other people fucking, be it in person, or in pictures or videos. So again, this asshole is just yucking someone else’s yum.

    “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.”
    -Being happy and confident in someone’s sexuality doesn’t mean you have to enjoy everyone else’s sexuality. Sexual healing comes from within not from others (though others can help in some ways), yes your own INTERNAL world. It does not necessitate you look at pictures of other people enjoying THEIR sexuality.
    -Sorry you don’t like my “moralistic” courtesy and consideration for others who may not like the same things you and I do. Sorry my morals prevent me from insulting strangers just because they’re not into the same kind of art you and I are.



  38. Linds on November 26, 2013 at 13:00

    Who is this writer to dictate what other people find to be distasteful (or not)? Really– he seems to think that just because he has an opinion, he should force it on other people, and other people should take heed. People have a right to feel however they want about sex. Implying that those who disagree simple aren’t “getting any” is something a 12 year old would do. Nobody’s mind is going to change after viewing this snarky little article, clearly it was just written so the writer could assert his opinion to no one in particular and feel important.



  39. Richard Nikoley on November 26, 2013 at 15:15

    @justin

    Right on. That’s the best way to do it. De direct, honest and totally accept the reaction.

    Start at Socrates, move forward. I didn’t bother with Plato, or any other philosophers who apologize for the state. Nietzsche. Bastiat. Rand. Jefferson. Lysander Spooner. Ayn Rand. Murray Rothbard. Too much to list. One ought kinda lead to the other. Google ‘enlightenment thinkers’

    @Heidi

    “While (I think) agree with your overall point, this is where I stopped reading.” ??? How does one agree _overall_ without reading it?

    @twisted

    How about visit the links to the MovNat retreat. You’ll find tons of pictures to both assure yourself that Erwan and I are separate people, and see that we’re in lots of company and everyone is smiling. You can also check with the 600+ people who attended the Ancestral Health Symposium 2011 at UCLA, or, simply watch Erwan’s an my presentations on Vimeo where we each had several hundred clapping attendees.

    @butterfly

    Nobody needs to consent to what I do with my own computer. If they don’t want to see what’s on my screen, they should be snooping.

    Her picture did not get taken down, nor did his when he posted it, nor did mine when I posted it (on FB). It was the complaint of porn we was rebuking.

    “Some people who have perfectly healthy sex lives prefer to keep it private.” Non sequitur. Those two can’t keep it private. They aren’t real. They are drawings. Erwan didn’t post a picture of two real people engaging in sex without their consent.

    “Oh really, you think everyone who enjoys sex in a healthy way doesn’t also enjoy pornography?” He is talking about sexually repressed people who resort to porn as a crutch, substitute, catharsis, not people who have good sex lives where porn is a part of it. Obviously he wasn’t speaking of you or people like you.

    “Being happy and confident in someone’s sexuality doesn’t mean you have to enjoy everyone else’s sexuality.” Irrelevant. Non sequitur. Nobody has to follow Erwan’s or Jessika’s timelines.

    @Linds

    Who [are you] to dictate what other people find to be distasteful (or not)?

    “force it on other people” That’s false to fact (see above).

    Finally, everyone see this comment regarding the whole ridiculous confusion so many people have about Facebook. It’s not the same Facebook. It’s now a blogging platform.

    No idea. Does that look like rape to you?

  44. Matt on November 28, 2013 at 07:08

    Well said by mister Le Corre.
    The picture though could do with more pubic hair, particularly on a Satyr who evidently has rather hairy legs.
