'Sojourn' excerpt: 'Takada's Cult of Love.'
In my upcoming book, 'Sojourn,' one of my main female characters runs a bizarre sexual liberation cult that focuses on a mixture of bondage sex and various religious themes from Islam, Christianity and Judaism. One of her most famous 'rituals' that she performs is a mocking reenactment of Christ's crucifixion, where she ties a willing victim to a cross and repeatedly has sex with him, while on the cross. The entire ritual is a mockery of how Christianity puts its practitioners in a sexual straightjacket, forbidding even something as benign as masturbation, let alone something like this.
