Stockham, Alice Bunker - Karezza - Men sow seed habitually where they do not wish it to grow
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Karezza – Ethics of Marriage 1903 second edition – Dr Alice B Stockham
The useless expenditure of seed certainly is not natural. God cannot have designed that men should sow seed by the wayside where they do not expect it to grow, nor in the same field where it has already been sown and is growing; and yet such is the practice of men in the ordinary sexual relation.
They sow seed habitually where they do not wish it to grow.
This is wasteful of life and cannot be natural. Yet is it not manifest that the instinct of our nature demands congress of the sexes, not only for propagative, but for social and spiritual purposes?
Our method simply proposes the subordination of the flesh to the spirit, teaching men to seek principally the elevated spiritual pleasures of sexual connection. This is certainly natural and easy to the spiritual man however difficult it may be to the sensual.
