Catharsis is a term which applies to enabling a person to have an experience without actually engaging in the act.
There is a story about life during the black plague in Europe; A woman is in her home one day and her son asks for permission to go out and play she
informs her son that he has chores to do and once he is done he can do as he pleases. The boy get angry and because of the extent of his tantrum his
mother sends him to his room and informs him that today he will have no supper.
That evening her husband comes home prepares himself for dinner and as he sits down for his meal his notices his son is not present, he asks his wife

There is a show called "That 70s show" on regular network TV. It's apparent that while all the member of the cast are not really under the age of
consent, the show presents to idea that sex between teenagers is OK as long as your
parents do not find out.
As well are there daily marijuana sessions between the principal characters (who again play the role of teenagers).
Its interesting when the issue of morality is brought up especially with respect to a comparison to the past.
The inclination seems to always point to the idea that in the past the morals were well above anything we today accept.
But that is until one actually begins investigating and comparing to aspects of history we do not always talk about. A good example is a thorough
review of Freudian literature some of the images of people in those days are quite startling. Entire sections of women's faces missing in an apparent
effort of there husbands to mark there territory.
One can look at even further in history and find babies born in torture chambers who spent there entire lives in agony.
And lest us not forget the matter of slaves whose' daughters by the month after there first menses were expected to do much more than feed chickens,
if she turned but dead it was no problem as they said in those days the soul was divine (they were pagans)
Pagans are defined as any faith outside a certain system of belief for the record ASE???
As far as cannibalism ASE would recommend you consider the potential advantages of labeling a human as an animal, again with respect to the past.
Pagans are not Satanist ASE and as far as TV well consider my opening statement?
Think of it this way ASE if you do what they show on TV to the extent characters are depicted doing it you would probably become HIV
Also when the facts are that in olden days Girls were considered women at 13 how old did they become prostitutes??
Check your facts ASE cause I known mine
