Erosian Treatise on the Physical Self

          Erosian Theory And Practice may at some points be
          abbreviated as ETAP.

          As an Erosian is well aware, our theory and practice stems
          from the physical act of sex. Sex has been defined on many
          levels, detailing its influence in love, family, lust,ect.
          However it is in the best interest of the studied Erosian
          to separate the levels of his/her sexuality and come to an
          understanding on each level. By following the above listed
          order of sexual definition, we will look at how Erosian
          Theory can apply to all levels of sexuality.

          LOVE -  Erosian Theory finds its biggest opposition, as
          well as it's biggest supporter in the love relationship.
          Unless both parties are involved in the Erosian study,
          growth, desire, and demand will differ. However when two
          compatible people, who both work and understand Erosian
          Theory join together in an EXCLUSIVE EROSIAN RELATIONSHIP
          they join together to grow, experience and build on the
          Erosian concepts together, exploring to the desired growth
          potential.  Erosian concepts do allow for non-Erosian
          relationships, at which time the Erosian should be aware
          that he/she will need to limit the physical experience
          growth, and expand mentally, or look to physical self
          growth via self gratification.

          FAMILY - Although Erosian Theory takes a backseat to the
          proper way to raise children, many of it's ideals can
          apply. Personal respect for ones's thoughts and actions,
          dignity in sexual relationships, respect for the thoughts
          and actions or others, as well as the non-judgemental
          aspect of Erosian Theory makes for strong teaching tools
          when working to define a child's attitudes toward sex.
          Once again, it cannot be stated emphatically enough that
          Erosian Theory and Practice in no way espouses any sexual
          activity amongst children.

          LUST - This is the cornerstone of the Erosian Theory.
          Although we have grown to respond to lust as a negative
          term, usually defined as base sexual instinct, this is
          merely another program set by narrow minded individuals
          who cannot understand the natural goodness inherant in
          sexual activity. When we understand that so many of these
          individuals see sex as the original sin, it is easy to
          understand the misdefinition of the word LUST. Lust is
          merely the physical side of sexual desire, divorced
          somewhat from love. Love details the emotional state of
          two people together, whereas lust defines the physical.
          Lust can be experienced without the trappings of love very
          rarely in our society. ETAP allows us to change this. With
          ETAP as our motivating focus, we can recognize desire, and
          channel it independent of a love interest. When the lust
          motivation is present in an individual who cannot
          differentiate between lust and love, or can differentiate
          but feels guilt associated with the lust not love

          relationship, the focus of desire is diminished, guilt
          replaces happiness, and sadness and confusion grow where
          there should be happiness and enjoyment. One of the first
          questions an ETAP follower should ask him/her self is
          this: "Am I in love/like with this person, or do I desire
          a physical experience(s) with him/her?" When the answer is
          determined, and if it is the latter of the two choices,
          then the Erosian should be very aware that the
          relationship is fun, enjoyable, growth oriented, but
          should not place love-valued emotions into play. False
          love can build unnecessary jelousy, anger, guilt and lack
          of self worth. You need to remember what you are and why
          you are doing what you do. Don't be afraid or guilty to
          call a sexual relationship what it is; a sexual
          relationship. If both parties define the terms, it becomes
          comprehendable to forsee relationships where two or three
          people get together because of a specific sexual desire,
          and work toward fulfilling that desire. It is not
          impossible to forsee special interest groups formed where
          the members would exchange ideas and work toward a
          guiltless group that could interact together. The key to
          this is honest and open communication and participation.

          Philosophy aside, there is also a certain degree to be
          said about performance and satisfaction. If an Erosian
          recognizes his or her sexuality, they must also have a
          desire to increase their abilites. In otherwords, a
          by-line to ETAP is increased sexual prowess. Please
          remember that this is not a measure of how much you please
          youself, but how much you please your partner.  Mutual
          satisfaction leads to greater input from each partner, and
          makes positive growth faster and stronger. (For more

          But to the focus of the treatise: The Physical Self. To
          paraphrase Stephen Hayes, reknowned martial artist and
          author, "I have experienced many things that people would
          say go beyond the physical realm. However upon closer
          examination, I have found that they are inherently
          physical." The purpose of his statement was to show that
          many times we associate the occult and the unknown with
          magic and evil, when in reality, these things are the most
          natural, and most assuredly of the physical realm.

          In my concept of the physical plane, I find that all
          things come from the state of the physical self. Our
          body's organs, glands, nerves, etc are the instruments of
          our passage of this plane. The health of these tools and
          our ability to utilize them for our own pleasure is the
          focus of Erosian Physicality.

          If we conceive of the power that drives our physical
          bodies as energy, or the aura as I call it, then positive
          reinforcement of the structure that houses that power can
          only be good. The pleasure associated by the experience of
          the focused power in action is often seen by a runner's
          "high", an adrenalin surge, or in our situation, the

          orgasm. To enhance this pleasure, we should follow a
          course that stresses health, fitness and training of our
          sexual selves. When the physical self is honed to a fine
          point where we can experience the pleasures of orgasm in
          depth and focused, then we can begin to channel the energy
          released at this point for positive use in our lives.

          The point of physicality and the physical self is of value
          to the Erosian only. Sadly in today's world, many people
          experience orgasm like a fast food meal. Quick and tasty,
          but lacking in nutrition, and with no real value to the
          senses. Orgasm should be the dessert in a seven course
          meal, the coup de' gras of the experience, to be savored
          and remembered. However unlike a seven course meal, an
          orgasm should be a frequent and common activity.
