THE SEX AND DEATH PROJECT

We ain't gonna give it up
as long as we got breath:
Sex and Death!!

The answer to life's mystery
is simple and direct:
Sex and Death!

Runnin' down the highway
and we ain't tired yet:
Sex and Death!

Motörhead, "Sex and Death" 

In the 20th century . . . there seems to have

been an unremarked shift

in prudery; parallels between the fantasies which titillate our curiosity about the mystery of sex, and those which titillate our curiosity about the

mystery of death.

Geoffrey Gorer,"The pornography of death"          

Sex is kicking death in the ass

while singing.

Charles Bukowski                          

The femme fatale, witch, or vamp represents an  outlawed form of female divinity, potency, genius,  sexual agency, independence, vengeance, and death power.
