This particular series of lectures addresses sexual compulsions that offend, solicit and provoke. Sexual violence, perversity, paedophilia, pornography, and obscenity. Conversations on such matters come with a high emotional charge. They challenge us to find our stand amidst heated opinions. Nevertheless, these subjects demand attention and must be entered into.

The study course comprises a collection of essays towards the book ‘Strange Loves’. Each talk explores the dark images and mythology of complex sexual behaviours, seen through the lens of Archetypal Psychology. They are intended both as an introduction for those who are interested in depth psychology and archetypal philosophy, and especially as stimulation for those more familiar with these ideas, whether as curious thinkers, or as passionate professionals.
