When we were conceived, a unique blueprint was made for us. Nature took the human genome and wove it with our distinctive phenotype to produce a plan for each of our organisms; and yes, it included a plan for the coveted family jewels at the centre of our body. We were totally mapped in that cosmic moment, nine months before birth, and this is what our spirit was given to work with.

The human genome gave us a basic design for our brain circuitry preloaded with know-how for the complete governing of our organism throughout life. In it was information we needed to surive like how to regulate the body’s organs in any situation.

The genome equipped our penis and brain to work in tandem to…

  • regulate our urinary system
  • produce erections rendered operational in the womb
  • experience pleasure by penile stimulation
  • initiate puberty at a time prescribed in our phenotype but carried out in a standardised sequence dictated by the genome and which we all share.
  • activate and regulate the male side of the human reproductive system, and
  • initiate and maintain throughout adulthood the running of the male drives after their pubescent upgrade.

Last in the list, our drives fill our minds with objects of male interest, curiousity and desire which compel us into an endless variety of social, sexual, productive, reproductive and fraternal relationships. Through consciousness, these compulsions play a major part in the spontaneous invention of positive intentional acts that produce penis power. Freud theorised that these drives – including the complementary drives of women – motivate us, are biological and innate. It is through our drives that we come to possess a dynamic set of cooperative connections to other human beings.

Our drives are constant, spanning the generations, ensuring that stories and tales from thousands of years ago are as enthralling today as the day they were written. No matter what or when, Greek mythology or Shakespeare play, the nuance of narratives which turn on characters’ jealousies, envies and desires endure. A hallmark of our primate species, these constants have aided humankind to achieve more than any other species we know of. How, then, did civilisations diverge so greatly in their presence? And why, despite the centrality of the penis to our drives, do we find ourselves in a society deeply fearful and anxious about the penis and male sexuality?

“Our drives are constant, spanning the generations, ensuring that stories and tales from thousands of years ago are as enthralling today as the day they were written.”

But our penile male drives merely set us in motion. The actions we render are only partly spurred by the momentary glimpses injected into the mind by our penis, itself uniquely born out of the marrying of the human genome with our particular phenotype. Add to this, the inspiration from the sum of the knowledge and experiences we have accumulated which no other person on Earth has ever previously possessed. The resulting acts are unique, seemingly of our own invention, and in-turn they set us outward along divergent paths.

No sooner did we evolve, did gatherers, hunters, outliers, explorers and conquerors scatter us across Earth’s surface through innumerable acts. Many found themselves isolated from whom they came first by distance and changing geographies, then by the passage of time. Through them emerged a plethora of civilisations with differing perspectives. However, one system of authority, order and control today dominates which sees the nation-state “embody the people” and assume responsibility for righting wrongs by balancing them with fear, in contrast to love and compassion arising from consciousness. In such a system, the Puritan and Capitalist reconfiguration of Western societies which sought to reduce human sexuality to procreation and growth, and labeled everything else indecent or a crime against nature so that where there had been the sex of the penis, there was now a state of fear, anxiety and powerlessness – in other words, shame.

In their excitment for a new era of knowledge, people were most likely over enthusiastic about applying it through civil statutes to regulate not only the economy, but Nature too. Sweeping prohibitions against chunks of sexuality borne out of the Instinctual drive and seen in other primates species like us, include sex not with ones spouse, sex with multiple partners, same-sex partner sex, exposure of any sex whatsoever only extended to include masturbation, the erection and simple nudity. A new source of fear, shame, guilt and embarrassment weakened the penis of otherwise normal men, and out of this weakness many a crime was committed.

Acts that know not what they destroy are deeply unconscious and ego driven like in the saying ‘to cut off one’s nose despite their face.’ Laws which make sexual expression as a crime thereby replacing them with the fear of punishment in all men are like this too. Thus the penis, in directing thought, compelled civilisations into action but left men themselves to decide on the direction they shall take. And, no one believed that once squashed our sexuality will only burst from the sides.

Compare today with Ancient Greece. For a period of 1000 years or more, Greek men were encouraged to mentor adolescents in usually sexual relationships. Today, Greek men and men throughout the World are prohibited from such activity almost at pain of death. Which society betrayed mens’ drives?

The irony of all this is that that the only way forward is the return of the penis to the man. Without freedom we cannot discover all the fruits of our loins such as superpotency and new socio-sexual innovations at a societal level. Only free men can return an inner power to their penis, restoring harmony to their sexual, social and productive relationships. We can start now transmuting shame by developing consciousness and spiritual wholeness through contemplative practices such as naturism, mindful masturbation and root chakra meditaton. It is incumbent upon us to develop consciousness so that our actions are free from unconscious pettiness, and are true to our genome.

The human genome details a blueprint for a male connector to Nature, the penis. But we have forgotten how to use it. Against the compulsions men experience naturally, men find themselves in a hostile world entangled in layer upon layer of repression and societal unconsciousness. But darkness is admonished by the energetic light of penis power and consciousness. Men can and do step beyond in order to return, reshaping manhood, forging meaningful sexuality – returning us little by little to the penis, to the human genome, and to the progression of Nature.


Soooo, yea I bit off way more than I could chew with this post. I plan to follow it up when I can with a more detailed exploration of Freud’s drives which would illuminate the main theme of the content in more compelling and scholarly prose. That said, I would hugely love and do invite corrections, wonderings or elaborations on any of the above to help me and other readers… even if to reject or perhaps tease out the idea of the penis as a connector to something external to the body that is not visible to our other senses. This idea emerged very late and I, perhaps unwisely, changed the title and other bits though the article does not address this much. Amazed if this is read – thank you, Nat.
