Hello B77ers...it's been awhile since i have last submerged.

For Elves, sex = marriage:

Maybe because of Tolkien's deep Catholic religious devotion?

I think I picked up on this on my own as I read Tolkien....that sex in ME is not something taken lightly; that it is always associated with love.

Should this thread be in "Thinking of England"?

But yes, that is the way things are. What of it?

It's elf sex let's not be so puritan :salmon:


And might I just add good thing I'm not an elf, I'd have been married a few times *wink wink nudge nudge* :heya: :P

Your sweet and weary head
Night is falling
You’ve come to journey's end
Sleep now
And dream of the ones who came before
They are calling
From across the distant shore

Why do you weep?
What are these tears upon your face?
Soon you will see
All of your fears will pass away
Safe in my arms
You're only sleeping

lol...TheMary


Good point, maybe this does belong in Thinking of England.

What of it? Good question...

I just thought maybe this would start some interesting conversation. The essay is sort of formal, and at a glance, seems to be well referenced. Just thought maybe this would bring forth a sex ideal conversation.

For me, I have an ideal of sex only with love, but it never seems to work out that way in my life. "Is this because I'm weak?" I ask myself... But it has always seemed to me that Tolkien's work has appealed to my heart, not so much my ego. And i think it is my ego that is caught up in sex without love. Or maybe it is my ego that is caught up in saying "my ego is caught up in sex without love." :suspicious: ;)

Ok, yes, let's move this to Thinking of England. :D

Then you could quote the article. I can't access it without bypassing my screening filters.

Presumably then it's just an oral contract.
