Who owns your body? It is assumed that if you identify with the Left Hand Path, where the individual seeks to manifest their will to be the master over their own life, that the Satanist considers they are the primary authority and master of their own body, and what they might wish to do with their body. With this in mind, it amuses this writer, that there are so many groups, religions, laws and arguments in society by people who think they have a stake in my body. Lets consider some of these issues relating to my own body, or the body of any Satanist.
If anyone wishes to use their body as a vehicle to make money through selling sexual services, or two consenting adults wish to participate in paid sexual activities, why not?
Like prostitution, any individual over the age of 18 might legitimately like to make money through image or video through the use of their own body to paying clients.
Bondage, S&M, swinging
Consenting adults might participate in a variety of sexual activities including extreme violence, including image and video. Yet, so-called liberal nations such as Britain would jail and place a person on the sexual offenders register for having content showing sexual violence, even if the participants are over 18 and were consenting.
The simple situation of adults taking their clothes off seems to attract volumes of argument and legal activity.
Body modification and tattoos
An increasing fashion in many modern nations, especially in the Left Hand Path. Yet, authority figures want to have a say in opposing the individual’s desire to modify or tattoo their body.
Gay sex, relationships and marriage
That same-sex partners wish to participate in consenting sexual practices, relationships and marriage with the same rights as heterosexual couples. What authority has anyone else to say what they can or cannot do?
Drugs, alcohol and tobacco
I include e-cigarettes, all substances that provide a desired reaction in the individual’s body. What an individual wishes to put in their own body is their own right, and surely as consenting adults aged 18+ anyone should have the right to trade in such substances.
If the individual for whatever reason wishes to terminate their own life, why are others wanting to oppose their wish?
For any Satanist, or anyone who identifies with the Left Hand Path, it is a simple position in my opinion, that you are the master and authority of your own body, thus on all the above issues, no law or external authority should be placing any restriction or have any say in the Satanic body, and how the Satanist uses their body.
