African & European Cultures Differ Sexually: One is Over Sexualized,

The Other Isn’t

Archbishop CarlsonSt. Louis Archbishop Carlson said he’s not sure he knew sexual abuse was a crime

No Word For SexIn this live presentation, Malidoma Somé and his wife Sobonfu take us into the Dagara village and give us their tribal view of intimacy, relationships and marriage.  In spite of Western influence, there still is ‘no word for sex’ in this African Village.

Which is ‘over sexualize’…which isn’t?  The only culture most African Americans know is Western ‘over sexualized’ culture and, so they too are sex addicts.  We can only be what we know.  For the sake of our children, is this not enough reason to learn African culture?


Referencing intimacy, not sex, a good place to start is The Spirit of Intimacy by Somonfu Some’  Born in Dano, Bukina Faso, a remote West African village that has perserved traditional Africa village life, with family structures, spiritual practices, and methods of living that’ve been place for more than 10,000 years…including the nature of intimate relations (review from Amazon).
