Monday’s Musings: “In Bed with Gandhi”

“Are God and Sex Incompatible?”

Gandhi with his bedtime companions. From http://www.independent.co.uk

Gandhi apparently slept with his nude grand-nieces beside him to prove the depth of his chastity. Claims are he was never aroused, even when watching the supple dames undress. I’ll put my take on it this way – no daughter of mine is being sent to sleep in all her disrobed glory next to any 70-year-old man, no matter how Holy. God of course will judge. Read a little more on Gandhi’s sex life here.

Writing for the Huffington Post, Kate Fridkis explores the separation of God and sex and the often implied polarity of body and soul, flesh and spirit. It’s certainly something I’ve queried in thought and conversation and the article is good food for thought. I encourage you to have a read.
