Worship a Whore in 2019

Make this the year of the Divine Whore

In the beginning of religion, there was no higher representation of spiritual service than the Sacred Whore. Devotees and disciples would travel great distances for the opportunity to merely be in the presence of a Divine Whore. In this capacity, all followers of the Divine had free access to their sexual power from this conduit. Over time, modern religion has seen fit to destroy this conduit and remove your access to your sexual power through it.

Fuck. That.

One of the core things we trust in at the Abyssian Union is the power of this question, “What if society worshipped whores instead of virgins?”

Sex workers are sacred in the Union. After the criminalization, slut-shaming, and prosecution of sex workers, people who continue to carry the flame of sacred sexuality at their own peril are worshipped here.

Do we mean worship all whores?

Yes.

All sex workers are Divine, whether they realize it or not. Our society has pinned them against each other through slut-shaming and purity culture in order to create an arbitrary system to determine who deserves respect and who doesn’t. It’s called the whorearchy, and it looks something like this:

“I’m just a topless dancer, so I’m way better than a stripper.”

“I’m just a stripper and therefore ‘cleaner’ than an escort.”

“I’m a high-end escort and way better than a street walker.”

We submit to you that this whole idea is false. Modern sex work is often rife with abuse and perversion of power.

Think of the last strip club you went to - it was probably pretty sleazy, right?

Most strip clubs function on an exploitation economy. Dancers usually have to pay to work every night they dance, mandatory uniforms and outfits tend to be expensive, and the women become dependent on an insecure source of income. A slow night leaves a lot of dancers owing money, and a lot of clients underwhelmed by a shitty experience.

Diving into modern prostitution, the situation is even more grim. The criminalization of your sacred rites has created an adverse working environment where those that choose to carry the sacred flame are in constant fear of abuse, trafficking, and mistreatment by customers or pimps. What’s more, sex workers are constantly harassed by the police, and when their rights or physical person is harmed, very often those same police refuse to offer any protection.

In the world today, something once so powerful and sacred has been marginalized. And usurpers have diverted its power for their own personal gain. Stealing from the well spring.

So what is a Sacred Whore?

A Sacred Whore is someone who heals through sexuality - who allows you to penetrate their mind, body, and spirit. Modern society would have you believe that the exchange of money for anything sexual is an abomination. There are two main problems with this - 1) sex is power and connection to that power is extremely valuable. Not allowing women to capitalize on that value is robbing them and making them dependant on a system that doesn't respect them 2) Prostitution is called the world’s oldest profession for a reason. It was the first thing that humans recognized as having value not just in the world, but in the marketplace. Anyone born with access to their sexual power has a built-in autonomy and sovereignty in their ability to market access to that sexual power. The Union is of the opinion that a lot of the patriarchal toxicity that pervades many modern societies is a direct correlation of robbing the Sacred Whore of her marketplace.

When done with intentionality from its sacred roots, sex is incredibly healing and transformative. No one bats an eye when it comes to paying a doctor or a therapist. Why should this form of healing be treated any differently? Sexual healing treats not just the body or mind, but the entire human spirit, and can be one of the most transformative experiences available. Modern sex work is sacrilege.

Imagine instead a world where strip clubs and brothels were temples, and it’s priestesses were treated with reverence and respect (think of Inara from “Firefly”).

So are you saying I should be a whore?

No, of course not. That decision is a very personal choice, and we would never want to arbitrarily force someone to choose that calling.

But there’s a lot that you can do right now to help create a better environment for everyone involved. You can stop making whores and strippers the butts of your jokes. Stop talking behind your stripper friend’s backs. And challenge yourself to be compassionate to something that you might not fully understand.

It’s a new year, people. Start it with a new frame of mind.

The Abyss loves all.

We love whores.

 

Happy New Year :)

We love whores.
