AFRO-FUTURISTIC VISION #19 Sex in Sci-Fi and the Impending Nubian Sex Scene
Sex and Sci-Fi
Rise in Excellence,
I was never one to blog or share my thoughts about the concepts of this world and how I experience them. However, I’ve grown fond of taking a few minutes of my time to write down how I feel about a topic and share it…it becomes like therapy.
SO this weekend I was thinking about Sex and Sci-Fi…maybe it should be Sex in Sci-Fi.
Sex or the sexual act is a topic that every age group opens all ears to. Yet, their ears are open and attached to the extreme nerve stimulation in and about the sexual organs coupled with the stream of erotic images that run across their mind. This is just how we been groomed about sex for the past 30 years or so. The idea is the more you have it the better, however, it seems what inevitably follows is boredom which causes an individual to explore.
Let’s take a moment to define sex as it was introduced to this world and acknowledge that sex, like any other word is a construct with attached meaning not something to attach previous cycles to. Once again a word is an attempt to explain an operation, the operation has always been in effect and cannot be limited by a definition of it.
late 14c., “males or females collectively,” from L. sexus “state of being either male or female, gender.” “Commonly taken with seco as division or ‘half’ of the race” [Tucker], which would connect it to secare “to divide or cut” (see section). Meaning “quality of being male or female” first recorded 1520s. Meaning “sexual intercourse” first attested 1929 (in writings of D.H. Lawrence); meaning “genitalia” is attested from 1938. Sex appeal attested by 1904.
For the raw sex appeal of the burlesque “shows” there is no defense, either. These “shows” should be under official supervision, at the least, and boys beneath the age of eighteen forbidden, perhaps, to attend their performance, just as we forbid the sale of liquors to minors. [Walter Prichard Eaton, “At the New Theatre and Others: The American Stage, Its Problems and Performances,” Boston, 1910]
The Oxford English Dictionary is conservative in its etymologies. They tell you if they are offering mere speculation, and speculation is all we have for the ultimate origin of the word “sex”. It entered English from Middle French (“sexe”, meaning the genitals, etc.) around 1400; Chaucer was unsurprisingly among the first to write it down in English. The French word and the similar words in many Romance languages stem from the Latin word of the same meaning, “sexus”, “of uncertain origin”.
As we can see from the definition above, the usage of the word sex originated from the 14 century to state the obvious differences between ‘genders’ and as you can see that definition evolved. However, the reference does not include so much the sexual act, and in this day and age when someone says sex they are more than likely referring to act not the difference in gender.
mid-15c., “communication to and fro,” from O.Fr. entrecours “exchange, commerce,” from L.L. intercursus “a running between, intervention,” fromintercursus, pp. of intercurrere “to run between,” from L. inter- “between” (seeinter-) + currere “to run” (see current). Meaning “sexual relations” first recorded 1798, from earlier sense “social contact and relations” (1540s)..
It is the word intercourse that refers to the act and as we can see it refers to communication. So this is a communication of ‘sexual’ energies between the genders in order to produce or reproduce new constructs of physical shells for spiritual bodies to plug into. Of course, this is my Afro-Futuristic perspective and deserves a chance to be reviewed and researched.
Now of course there is also the Fuck which is the more accurate expression used today.

until recently a difficult word to trace, in part because it was taboo to the editors of the original OED when the “F” volume was compiled, 1893-97. Written form only attested from early 16c. OED 2nd edition cites 1503, in the form fukkit; earliest appearance of current spelling is 1535 — “Bischops … may fuck thair fill and be vnmaryit” [Sir David Lyndesay, “Ane Satyre of the Thrie Estaits”], but presumably it is a much more ancient word than that, simply one that wasn’t written in the kind of texts that have survived from O.E. and M.E. Buck cites proper name John le Fucker from 1278. The word apparently is hinted at in a scurrilous 15c. poem, titled “Flen flyys,” written in bastard Latin and M.E. The relevant line reads:
Non sunt in celi
quia fuccant uuiuys of heli
“They [the monks] are not in heaven because they fuck the wives of [the town of] Ely.” Fuccant is pseudo-Latin, and in the original it is written in cipher. The earliest examples of the word otherwise are from Scottish, which suggests a Scandinavian origin, perhaps from a word akin to Norwegian dialectal fukka”copulate,” or Swedish dialectal focka “copulate, strike, push,” and fock “penis.” Another theory traces it to M.E. fyke, fike “move restlessly, fidget,” which also meant “dally, flirt,” and probably is from a general North Sea Germanic word; cf. M.Du. fokken, Ger. ficken “fuck,” earlier “make quick movements to and fro, flick,” still earlier “itch, scratch;” the vulgar sense attested from 16c. This would parallel in sense the usual M.E. slang term for “have sexual intercourse,” swive, from O.E. swifan “to move lightly over, sweep” (see swivel). But OED remarks these “cannot be shown to be related” to the English word. Chronology and phonology rule out Shipley’s attempt to derive it from M.E. firk “to press hard, beat.”
Germanic words of similar form (f + vowel + consonant) and meaning ‘copulate’ are numerous. One of them is G. ficken. They often have additional senses, especially ‘cheat,’ but their basic meaning is ‘move back and forth.’ … Most probably, fuck is a borrowing from Low German and has no cognates outside Germanic. [Liberman]
French foutre and Italian fottere look like the English word but are unrelated, derived rather from L. futuere, which is perhaps from PIE root *bhau(t)- “knock, strike off,” extended via a figurative use “from the sexual application of violent action” [Shipley; cf. the sexual slang use of bang, etc.]. Popular and Internet derivations from acronyms (and the “pluck yew” fable) are merely ingenious trifling. The O.E. word was hæman, from ham “dwelling, home,” with a sense of “take home, co-habit.” Fuck was outlawed in print in England (by the Obscene Publications Act, 1857) and the U.S. (by the Comstock Act, 1873). As a noun, it dates from 1670s. The word may have been shunned in print, but it continued in conversation, especially among soldiers during WWI.
It became so common that an effective way for the soldier to express this emotion was to omit this word. Thus if a sergeant said, ‘Get your —-ing rifles!’ it was understood as a matter of routine. But if he said ‘Get your rifles!’ there was an immediate implication of urgency and danger. [John Brophy, “Songs and Slang of the British Soldier: 1914-1918,” pub. 1930]
The legal barriers broke down in the 20th century, with the “Ulysses” decision (U.S., 1933) and “Lady Chatterley’s Lover” (U.S., 1959; U.K., 1960). Johnson excluded the word, and fuck wasn’t in a single English language dictionary from 1795 to 1965. “The Penguin Dictionary” broke the taboo in the latter year. Houghton Mifflin followed, in 1969, with “The American Heritage Dictionary,” but it also published a “Clean Green” edition without the word, to assure itself access to the lucrative public high school market.
The abbreviation F (or eff) probably began as euphemistic, but by 1943 it was being used as a cuss word, too. In 1948, the publishers of “The Naked and the Dead” persuaded Norman Mailer to use the euphemism fug instead. When Mailer later was introduced to Dorothy Parker, she greeted him with, “So you’re the man who can’t spell ‘fuck’ ” [The quip sometimes is attributed to Tallulah Bankhead]. Hemingway used muck in “For whom the Bell Tolls” (1940). The major breakthrough in publication was James Jones’ “From Here to Eternity” (1950), with 50 fucks (down from 258 in the original manuscript). Egyptian legal agreements from the 23rd Dynasty (749-21 B.C.E.) frequently include the phrase, “If you do not obey this decree, may a donkey copulate with you!” [Reinhold Aman, “Maledicta,” Summer 1977]. Fuck-all “nothing” first recorded 1960.
Verbal phrase fuck up “to ruin, spoil, destroy” first attested c.1916. A widespread group of Slavic words (cf. Pol. pierdolić) can mean both “fornicate” and “make a mistake.” Fuck off attested from 1929; as a command to depart, by 1944. Flying fuck originally meant “have sex on horseback” and is first attested c.1800 in broadside ballad “New Feats of Horsemanship.” For the unkillable urban legend that this word is an acronym of some sort (a fiction traceable on the Internet to 1995 but probably predating that) see here, and also here. Related: Fucked;fucking. Agent noun fucker attested from 1590s in literal sense; by 1893 as a term of abuse (or admiration).
DUCK F-CK-R. The man who has the care of the poultry on board a ſhip of war. [“Classical Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue,” 1796]
We can see from this definition where sexual intercourse took on a more crude expression and involved more violent and insatiable intentions in the process of ‘communication.’
From an Afro-Futuristic point of view, sexual intercourse always (for the most part) in Nubian expressions/cultures (and I am going to include Kemet, Kush, Interior of Afrika, Indus River, Pre-Ainu, Xia and Shang, Harrapans) was a reflection of creation.
Something always referring to the dynamics of gender (gods, netchru, deities) meeting and communicating their energies so that creation can take place through the sexual act. Although, there are just as many stories told of these beings being very active with one another, one may also see this as the interplay between forces of nature in constant contact.
Somewhere along the lines in Science Fiction or Sci-Fi, the majority of times Sexual Intercourse takes place in these films, is the result of the danger that ensued and triggered the response for the body to reproduce. When a species of life feel their seed/genetics/bloodline is in danger, they will seek to further their genetic line consequently experiencing a heightened level of sexual arousal. And this is usually the reason why sex takes place in a Sci-Fi Film and why so many Sci-Fi Films have the most alarming rate of one-night stands. This gives the audience an added thrill to the overall experience meanwhile deepening the idea that Love may be taking over the idea of Lust. Who is to say which is actually taking place when an Alien just killed your entire team and you are left with the only male/female on a barren planet, barren being the key word. Or maybe an overwhelming number of machines are but miles away from your compound and seek the lives of those in it.
It never fails…and apparently it never grows old.
Sensual movement of the body, heavy breathing, tears and theatrical music strewn against the backdrop of a darkened room with only minutes to be one with each other, will stir up the mind of any movie-goer. And the underlying fact is that society’s idea about sex and sexual intercourse is running its ideal in the back of the person’s mind while watching these movies. In addition, the assurance of life having an opportunity to continue (due to the chance of reproduction) plays in the subconscious as well, the mind is relieved is filled with hope seeing the hero and heroine lay in the sheets together. And they always seem to have some sheets. They could have just barreled through an army of zombies, but as long as there are some sheets around, the audience will feel a sense of relief. Even if there is a bit of sensual batter, that is more than enough for the on-looker hyped up on high corn syrup and cheese.
Here are some examples:
Howard the Duck (yes, Howard…the Duck)
Super Nova (which is interesting b/c that is going to be an interesting baby)
The converse to this is that when a Nubian actor plays in these roles, there is very chance that they will get some sexual healing or even a chance at reproducing their seed. I do not know if this makes the film more realistic or if there is some undercurrent statement being made, however, it does happen:
Prometheus (and he tried)
I am Legend
Dawn of the Dead (the other dude seed lives though)
Night of the Living Dead
De Ja Vu (maybe he does)
Book of Eli
Sometimes I think there is an integrity of not having the sexual energy playing out in Sci-Fi Films, an integrity of the character and his role. However, in order for a story to have the true expression of creativity and roles, there must be a coupling of energies (male and female). One’s counterpart must be represented in order to play on hue-man emotion and reasoning. Otherwise the character will appear imbalanced without their mate and feed into the martyr complex. Yet, it is interesting to note that when a Nubian actress plays a role, they do have their counterpart in most cases and usually it is rarely they are seen with their counterpart of the same ethnic and = cultural background.
It is my intention to bring the energy of sexual encounters into my Afro-Futuristic writing with the intent to produce creativity of new beings, healing and the interplay of cosmic and terrestrial forces. And to show the counterparts (male and female) working together to solve their challenge. I am not waiting for Sci-Fi to accept our concept of sex within its folds.
With all this in mind, when we look at the Principle of Gender, we can see how our roles in Sci-FI are a bit imbalanced:
*result from a search –
7) Principle of Gender
The Principle of Gender embodies the idea that there gender is manifested in everything. The authors state this does not relate to “sex”, but to “… beget; to procreate, to generate, to create, or to produce” in general. Gender is manifested as the Masculine and Feminine principles, and manifests itself on all planes.
Mental Gender is described as a Hermetic concept which relates to the masculine and feminine principles. It does not refer to the physical gender of someone, nor does it suggest that someone of a certain physical gender necessarily has the same mental gender. Ideally, one wants to have a balanced mental gender.
Gender exists on all planes of existence (Physical, Mental, and Spiritual), and represents different aspects on different planes. It is also stated that everything and everyone contains these two elements or principles.
The Masculine principle is always in the direction of giving out or expressing, and contents itself with the “Will” in its varied phases.
The Feminine principle is always in the direction of receiving impressions, and has a much more varied field of operation than the Masculine. The Feminine conducts the work of generating new thoughts , concepts, and ideas, including the work of the imagination.
It is said that there must be a balance in these two forces. Without the Feminine, the Masculine is apt to act without restraint, order, or reason, resulting in chaos. The Feminine alone, on the other hand, is apt to constantly reflect and fail to actually do anything, resulting in stagnation. With both the Masculine and Feminine working in conjunction, there is thoughtful action that breeds success.
This is an important point…
We have a movement…it is called Afro-Futurism.
N Eternity Reclaimed –
Khnum’s virility poured out from his skin, causing my arousal to heighten.
“I am going to leave you with a part of me.”
His strong fingers gently crawled in between my legs, I could not help but to shiver. Khnum parted my legs and entered in between my lips. They kissed my husband’s manhood with no recollection of when they’d last enjoyed its presence.
At first his firm strokes were a bit unpleasant due to my inactivity but then my womb yielded to his insistence and opened its walls…
I held him by the waist as he drove deeper and faster. At this moment if I were to suddenly lose all awareness of myself for all time to come, I would not care.
Every part of me was stirred up with an intense fire that imbued all my cells. Our eyes met and became one, then within that meeting we became unaware of each other. We were whole.
We moved together, giving and taking of one another until our sweat became sweet.
“Take care…of me.”
Before I could pull myself from ecstasy to respond, his life-germ flooded my walls. The warm sensation of his fluid spread throughout my womb and raced up my spine bringing about my own climax. Just then, a cool rush of air filled the chamber…
