"Human flight is not a simple matter of science and technology. It is a continuing epic of dreams and obsession, of yearning and striving to harness the intellect in the service of the emotions." In Like Sex with Gods: An Unorthodox History of Flight, Bayla Singer offers a unique approach to humanity's fascination with flying. Rather than merely tracing the factual prehistory of flight up to the success of the Wright Brothers, Bayla Singer considers the interaction and influence of our dreams, fantasies, culture, and technology on the age-old quest to fly. This enlightening study begins with the deities and other denizens of the heavens that humanity has created in its religion, literature, and art. At first a monopoly of the gods, flight came to interest humanity as a way to free itself from the physical and intellectual bonds of the earth. The myth of flight eventually gives way to the pursuit of actual flight. Singer shows in compelling detail the many flying machines that have been created, including balloons, gliders, and kites. The accomplishment of the Wright Brothers and our successful trips into space are merely stops on a continuing journey, as our ancient dream of flight continues to push us to new and loftier places. Filled with compelling stories and detailed illustrations, this book provides absorbing reading for aviation experts, those fascinated with the intimate relationship between technology and culture, and all of us who have even a passing interest in flying.

This is the true story of a self-confessed sexual zealot who, while satisfying his lust with bar girls in Hong Kong, Philippines, Vietnam, and Thailand, is compelled by the intensity of his libido to find its deeper meaning through Tantra. Tantra teaches that the fast track to enlightenment and to 'God', is not celibacy as Buddha and Jesus taught, but Maithuna or sacred sex. In Tantra, Go-Go dancers and escorts are avatars of the goddess Shakti and can be used as spiritual rocket fuel. His love of women eventually persuades him to marry a Thai girl that creates an impossible dilemma in his life. He is torn between his love for one woman and his insatiable need for Go-Go dancers, who in Thailand are beautiful, affordable, and abundant. He fears his sex utopia in Thailand is threatened by the Islamic insurgency in the south. Beneath the face of tourist paradise, Thailand is afflicted with divisive political and religious unrest. Thailand is waiting for the new Buddha to return to establish a golden age of peace. But Buddha is not coming back and only the sex gods of Tantra can save Thailand. Only the sex gods can save the world.

Gods Design For Sex is a practical guide exposing apologetically in graphic details the improper knowledge and usage of sex and revealing for the first time ever the dark sides of premarital sex. The Doctor using his numerous experiences, exposure, knowledge and revelations from God does a great and remarkable job especially in his efforts towards giving proper family and social advice.

There is not a topic more universal like sex. It is the strongest natural emotion known to man. It is the source of man's greatest achievement - that is reproduction. It is generally the source of life for all animals and human beings. It was given to man as a gift to enjoy and partake in by God's will and design. But most painfully, the abuse of it has been the source of man's greatest pain, loss of glory and destruction. It has something to do with every man, woman, king, pauper, rich, poor, dark skinned and fair skinned. The curiosity it generates has led to the right and wrong knowledge of it. Despite the popularity it has generated, many still lack the proper knowledge of it. Funny enough many are shy to discuss it openly. Because of this large measure of ignorance, Satan has used its unrelenting potential to perpetrate evil in our homes, churches and careers. This book will attempt to bring a practical guide and also attempt to correct all the wrong information about sex, and proffer a sexual rehabilitation to the misguided. As I believe that by knowing the truth about sex, sanity could be restored to our homes and churches. I pray that by sharing the revelations in this book, we will be released from the traps and the torments of sex that is creeping around us and be restored to peace, purity and sound mind. Gods Design For Sex is a practical guide exposing apologetically in graphic details the improper knowledge of sex and revealing for the first time ever the dark sides of premarital sex. The Doctor using his numerous experiences, exposure, knowledge and revelations from God does a great and remarkable job especially in his efforts towards giving proper family and social life, as it regards christian life. His efforts towards bringing sexual restoration and proper applicable techniques towards the sexually assaulted or abused is indeed extremely refreshing. The book is exceptionally important in the life of everyone (young and old) desiring a better relation with their self and with God and it is very essential for anyone desiring a more satisfying sexual life in the directions of Gods plan and designs.
20:2) God hated all these made-up gods, but the one who he truly despised was Baal, the socalled sex god. ... God discovered that Baal actually did exist, he would kill him, along with all the other, not-made-up-as-it-turned-out gods.

"Part Kurt Vonnegut, part Douglas Adams, but let's be honest, Matheson had me at ‘Based on the Bible.'" —Dana Gould, comedian and writer The Bible offers some clues to God's personality—he's alternately been called vindictive and just, bloodthirsty and caring, all-powerful and impotent, capricious and foresighted, and loving and hateful. But no one has ever fully explored why God might be such a figure of contrasts. Nor has anyone ever satisfactorily explained what guides his relationship not just with angels, the devil, and his son, but also with all of creation. Might he be completely misunderstood, a mystery even to himself? Might his behavior and actions toward humankind tell us much more about him than it does about us? Enter the mind of the creator of the universe, travel with him through the heavenly highs and hellish lows of his story, from Genesis to Revelation, to better understand his burdensome journey: being God isn't easy. After hearing his story—at times troubling and tragic but always hilarious in its absurdity and divine in its comedy—you'll never look at a miracle or catastrophe—or at our place in the universe, or God's—the same way again.

Do you like plain vanilla sex, sobriety, and a sense of normalcy? Then this book isn't for you.
Author: Brian Whitney
Publisher: Strawberry Books
Do you like plain vanilla sex, sobriety, and a sense of normalcy? Then this book isn't for you. In the tradition of Naked Lunch, Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas and Catch 22, comes a bizarre black comedy about power trips, insanity, and the dark side of sex. Brian Whitney – a dissolute, dead broke, alcoholic writer in Portland, Maine – is hired to ghostwrite the memoirs of Dylan, a deranged, fantastically wealthy sex addict, who lives in Samoa with his two female sex slaves. Dylan’s had a profound spiritual awakening during a vision quest he went on with a local tribe. He thinks he met God. Actually, he thinks he met God and had sex with Him. Raped Him, in fact. Working with Dylan is the job Whitney’s been waiting for. He can hardly wait to get started. There’s only one catch. Well, two catches. One is that Whitney must travel to Samoa, to hear Dylan’s stories, to live as Dylan does, drunk and high for days on end, with his own personal sex slave, so he can understand the world how Dylan sees it. Two is he must bring with him a photograph of an aging former porn star, nude, passed out, and wearing a moose hat. Whitney can get the photograph. But can he really live as Dylan does? Can he bring himself to take possession of another person, a slave so abject she will carry out every command, no matter how humiliating? What follows is a strange journey into the dark heart of man, in particular one man who lives as an all-powerful god upon the earth. “Brian Whitney’s first novel is weird, surreal, and at times so laugh-out-loud funny that you will cough up your breakfast. Imagine if Hunter Thompson and William S. Burroughs went upriver in a Navy patrol boat to visit Colonel Kurtz from Apocalypse Now. The result would be a lot like Raping the Gods.” -Patrick Quinlan, bestselling author of Sexbot, Smoked, and All Those Moments
