Burning Man considerations, wife-sharing in ancient Sparta, and A#s is the new vagina? The Physical and Meta-Physical Consequences of Anal Sex

Mia and I are leaving later today for a couple weeks out in the Nevada Desert, including a short stay at the annual art installation cum alternative expo, Burning Man, out near Gerlach. I’ve been irregularly visiting since the first events in ’89/90, when they were loosely organized and sparsely attended. Burning Man has reached a level of interest which I don’t really get a lot out of anymore, though the installations are increasingly amazing and the participants are all enthusiastic, sincere and generally of a good nature. My biggest complaint is the inevitable police presence and, having seen it early and watched how it has grown, I’ll add that the scale is now far more than I can enjoy. Have at it, though, if you’re going, ’cause Mia and I will attend at least later in the week but for the most part, we’ll be camped out high atop some nearby mountains and doing our best to wallow in solace and the blissfully crisp, clean high altitude air, ah…

We did go to an informal Burning Man send-off gig this week, however, and I got into a conversation with a young couple who I found are fascinated by the ‘300′ movies and were eager to soak up everything they could from me, a loudmouthed hobbyist with regards to all things Lacedaemonian…er, Spartan for you barbarians.

They wanted to know how marriage took place back then, as they’d been tantalized by some of the scenes in the first 300, so I laid it out:

The young man generally took his bride by force, carrying her into a darkened room and leaving her there until attendants clothed her in very rough work clothes; then, later that night, he would creep into the room and remove her ‘genital clothing’ and then take her with little foreplay, and afterwards, they would remain together till before first light, when he would silently leave her. It may seem odd by our standards today, but the couple did not openly show affection or walk about as newlyweds; everything between them was done secretly, and if anyone caught the guy going in or out, he would be whipped. Why? Lycurgus, the original Spartan Lawgiver, wanted a sense of both modesty and restraint to prevail, because he knew that in the young, their emotions and impulses are so intense, that to put a check on them would ensure the lasting health of the relationship. Why again? Because they never got the chance to spend their desire, they would always have something in reserve, something unfinished that was kept alight and because of the need for secrecy, their passion for each other was heightened even more, since it was only for a few fleeting hours in the dark of night when they could be together. This situation would last until the girl became pregnant, and then she was brought into another home where she would bring the child to term.”

I went on to describe a bit more of Spartan marriage customs before I dropped the bomb on them; oh yeah, lost of fun:

One of the more peculiar habits of the Spartans was that, if a young man fell in love with or simply wanted to have an oder married woman bear his children, the older married man almost always allowed the younger man the ‘use’ of his wife, since the idea was the Sparta was a community and that property, including wives, was to be shared. Sometimes very attractive wives were allowed to have younger lovers if their husbands weren’t capable any longer, and sometimes it was simply a matter of the husband wanting to please both wife and her stud by freely allowing it to happen, but never in his presence, which was considered a shameful act. One other thing that should be mentioned is that Spartan women only lived with their children until age 7, when the kids were removed from the home and put into perhaps the most severe military training regimen our planet has ever scene, really horrific by our standards but, Spartan men were produced, and there were no finer or more brave warriors than these of any era.”

I was, I will admit now, surprised only that it was his and not her reaction which was the strongest.

You mean, if some young guy wanted to screw your wife, you would just allow it?” he asked, astonished.

Sure, nobody batted an eye, Lycurgus did not want to foster an envious or jealous environment in Sparta, which he knew jealousy to be amongst the most destructive emotions, that’s why he had the young paraded about nude, modestly of course, but fully naked, and why he removed gold and silver form Sparta. He wanted nothing that would encourage greed, corruption and possessiveness, and it worked for quite awhile.”

His wife, who’d been silent the entire time, finally added her thoughts, “I think it’s a great idea, actually, people sharing each other without jealousy, it’s too bad we can’t do that here.”

I left them then as I watched the young man begin to lose his grip…on his jealousy!

Wait, you mean, you would like it if…”

When we left about an hour later, they were still going at it. Ah, shoulda been born Spartan, guys, and this little issue woulda never come up!

This week’s MiltnMia Show podcast:

A#s is the new vagina? The Physical and Meta-Physical Consequences of Anal Sex

Milt introduces their theme and shares some of the history of Sodomy along with the recent trend of young women almost exclusively engaging in anal sex, out of fear of HPV virus and pregnancy, and how many men today demand it. Mia says, “What is your anal area for? Evacuation, but now you’re putting something in the opposite direction, so physiologically it doesn’t make sense. Anal sex is dangerous, you can rupture a vein there, whereas the vagina is meant for that.” Milt asks, “What about long-term?” Mia replies, “Loss of sphincter control, which happens with homosexual males.” Milt jumps in, “Let’s talk meta-physical, a lot of guys are into it as a response to feminism, as a way to have power over women.” Mia, “It is power thing, and in a lot of countries, the girls save their vaginal virginity and yet do everything else, but it should be something done only on special occasions, not every day.”
