Sex Visions (not an R&B album)
March 21, 2014 11:45 AM Subscribe
I'm looking for information about visions or visuals experienced during sex. Not anecdotes, but 1. rigorous scientific work that contextualizes who gets them and why, and 2. artists, writers, or poets who have used them as inspiration in any way.
This forum has a good set of examples

to flesh out what I refer to. It's not a deliberate "close your eyes and picture Brad Pitt" thing, or a "squeezing your eyes closed too tight" thing. I get these, and they're always surprisingly poetic, sensory, and inspiring, as well as delicately personal, and so I'm curious about the history and basis of the phenomenon. I imagine other women (are there men ?) have incorporated them into spiritual or artistic expression.
Looking for leads on that and on the science of sex/brain/sensual hallucination phenomenon.
