  1. How interesting that the penises are portrayed as ejaculating in the majority of the paintings; that's a root downfall in tantric practice, to be avoided at all costs. Does this mean the tantric rituals really aren't about some supposed spiritual sex for the sake of enlightenment, but are really about ordinary, mundane sex? It looks like these paintings reveal more than the artist intended.

  2. So true. Thanks for your obversation. My thought was, "It is all about sex afterall."
