“Sex On the Wrong Brain”: Exploring the Link Between Misguided Reproductive Energy and the Global Rise in Extremism and Authoritarianism
The provocative book and website “Sex On the Wrong Brain” present the idea that sexism, racism, and authoritarianism are driven by improperly channelled reproductive impulses. They advocate that enhanced sex education could help curb these societal issues.
“When the health agencies of New York City and Australian states NSW and Queensland suggested masturbation as a safe sex alternative during the COVID pandemic they should have specified which hand to use,” asserts Ard Falten, the author of the book.
The concept of “Sex on the wrong brain“, or SOWB, is outlined as an encompassing theory of human thought and action. It operates on the fundamental belief that the hand used in sexual learning profoundly impacts human behaviour. The theory alleges that right-hand usage has been responsible for centuries of greed, authoritarianism, patriarchy, and warfare, contributing to the mindset that is now propelling global warming.
“COVID-19 was a mass sex on the wrong brain event,” declares Falten. He argues that the pandemic exacerbated the typical behaviours of authoritarian regimes, from Texas to Russia and historical empires. The underlying motive to suppress sexuality and control women’s reproductive rights is viewed as a strategy to amplify frustration among right-handed men, vital to the support of authoritarian leaders.
The theory suggests that using the right hand, connected to the left brain hemisphere, wrongly associates urgent reproductive impulses with left-brain thinking, which ideally should be patient and analytical. It identifies three major symptoms:
- When sexual energy influences cognitive functions such as reasoning and logic, it leads to hasty decisions, quick-fix solutions, and a predilection for conclusive answers.
- When sexual energy intertwines with numerical and quantitative thinking, it fosters a desire for greater numbers and sizes, escalating greed and materialism.
- Misappropriating reproductive energy for unrelated tasks could heighten sexual dysfunction.
The website discusses how authoritarianism is often measured using the Uncertainty Avoidance Index. It introduces the concept of Certainty Deficit Disorder (CDD), attributing it to a spectrum of extreme and anti-democratic behaviours driven by an irrational preference for certainty and a fear of uncertainty.
The dynamic between certainty and uncertainty is presented to explain authoritarianism:
- As the quest for certainty and closure intensifies, so does the aversion to uncertainty, change, diversity, unpredictability, and the natural world.
- The pursuit of certainty often overshadows the quest for truth.
- Authoritarian leaders are deemed to be certain, confident, decisive, and perpetually correct, qualities their followers equate with intelligence and strength.
- Authoritarian leaders and ideologies establish certainty by promoting order and reducing the world to simple binaries, fostering intolerance, bigotry, and extremism.
- Complex issues that generate uncertainty, like climate change, are typically denied or oversimplified.
The website posits that associating sex with punishment and guilt enables authoritarian cultures to develop thought patterns that redirect reproductive energy towards justifying illusory certainty, potentially leading to deceit, denial, hypocrisy, and sexual dysfunction.
Features of Sexonthewrongbrain.com include:
- Various factors influencing individual and population levels of SOWB, such as ancestry, gender, libido, frustration, etc.
- Observations indicating lower SOWB occurrences in females.
- Possible implications for the development of artificial intelligence.
- The tendency for SOWB to increase as people age, due to the entrenchment of SOWB-based thought patterns and diminished opportunities for real sexual experiences.
- The possibility that people from older civilisations may exhibit higher levels of SOWB, which may contribute to misogyny and bigotry.
- The role of culture, social hierarchy, discrimination, and religion in amplifying SOWB.
- The potential of SOWB to provoke violence and mental health issues.
- The evolution of human right-handedness and its link to SOWB.
- The rise of SOWB in densely populated areas in recent centuries, along with its evolutionary implications and research possibilities.
“There’s evidence that some of our ancestors knew about sex on the wrong brain,” notes Falten. He contends that, although the theory may be perceived as unconventional, it has significant implications for democracy, progress, and even the field of artificial intelligence.
To appeal to a broader audience, the book and a screenplay intertwine the SOWB theory with a science fiction adventure comedy set in a future facing global warming challenges. The book received a favourable review from Simon Barrett: “Yes, I like ‘Sex On the Wrong Brain’ a lot. If you like Douglas Adams and don’t mind a few ‘smutty’ bits, you will enjoy this book.” The screenplay has been recognised as a finalist in numerous contests.
“Sex On the Wrong Brain” is available for purchase from major online retailers, including Amazon.
