A hermaphrodite and a woman are making love in a public place. They are standing completely naked. The presence of the hermaphrodite arouses me and I find their act provoking. It's a tasteful presentation of sensuality, something between a political statement and an art performance. It's the political aspect I find provoking.
Comments: This is the answer to my question for further directions.Go figure. It must be an important dream because it's followed by Cracking the Ice. To me the dream has many associations, but not really one that summarizes it all. I don't want to bore you with pages of not so convincing annotations. If you have any thoughts or associations about this dream, I would like to hear them. You might keep in mind however that because CFS blows away all possible distractions, it is in some sense a very sensual disease. I'm aware of my body 100% of the time. I feel all the tiny and not so tiny pains, the changes of body temperature, the stresses in my muscles, the raging of stress hormones, the tinkling in my nerves, changes in the blood circulation, ebb and flood of energy and the relaxation and the sheering of my body when I lay down again.
