A Thousand Tiny Sextapes (Part 2)

Read: A Thousand Tiny Sextapes (part 1) here.   Porn as community Today, porn on the internet is a well that never dries out. Although much of ”commercial”, mainstream pornography is produced in California, porn can also be seen as a growing do-it-yourself movement. Some search-engine-youtube-like sites, such as Pornhub, also has a division of what they are doing called Pornhub Community. The Community in this case consists … Continue reading A Thousand Tiny Sextapes (Part 2)

The Cure #2: Acceptance Commitment Theology

In my post The Sickness I bashed psychoanalys and different strands of psychology for being in service of capitalism; of an ideological production of a self-sufficient individual. However, when I’m now turning to formulating a remedy, there are different aspects of this where I think that Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) is productive. But I would like to advance this to Acceptance Commitment Theology. It’s all the … Continue reading The Cure #2: Acceptance Commitment Theology

A Thousand Tiny Sextapes (Part 1)

Desire, in Deleuze’s understanding of the word, is productive, it drives us forward, the amalgamation of the in some sense heretofore singular, or at least separable, into a new totality is how desire works. Desire … Continue reading A Thousand Tiny Sextapes (Part 1)

Sex, Money & Theology

What is theology? I know, had that been the ”sexy” headline this may become the least read piece I’ve ever written. However, I believe that there is much to be said on this topic. One way of thinking about theology is to align with a tweet from theologian David Capener: Contemporary theology seems to be about answering questions no one is asking. I believe this has a painful … Continue reading Sex, Money & Theology

The Cure #1: Control+Alt+Deleuze

In my last post I posited that capitalist individualism may be seen as a sickness. I wouldn’t do my job as a deleuzian philosopher if I didn’t take the mission command to introduce new problems and dream up new concepts, new worlds even. Here is one idea that has been floating around in my head for some time. How to merge a libertarianism (verging on anarchism) … Continue reading The Cure #1: Control+Alt+Deleuze

The Sickness

We live in a world where we are told by forces (I know, it sounds ominous but bear with me) tell us that the individual should be self-sufficient. In their seminal works on Capitalism and Schizophrenia, Deleuze and Guattari talks about how psychoanalysis ‘works’, but is no neutral practice. I would argue that the same holds true for not only psychoanalysis but principally every strand of psychology … Continue reading The Sickness
