Motherfucker


'Motherfucker' as a title is a tribute to all the 'Hieroduces of Heaven', the sacred prostitutes and the goddesses they embodied. It's indicative of the misogyny in our culture that 'motherfucker' is a term of abuse.

In ancient cultures the fabric of society was held together by the 'sacred marriage'. In these times the metaphysical ideas were embodied in sexual intercourse performed ritually in temples.
Creativity of the goddess was a constant state, and the fertility of all aspects of creation was her epiphany (i.e. her manifestation as a super-human force or creatrix). The well-being of human, animal and plant life depended on this ritual.

I feel that this primal longing still exists, and although godess religions were wiped out by Christianity, one can see goddess worship submerged in some ways in phenomena such as pornography.
