1913 “Futurist Manifesto of Lust”

E-Flux Conversations recently posted  the historical feminist manifestos :Futurist manifesto of list by by Valentine de Saint-Point (pictured above), written in 1913. For those who’ve spent some time contemplating the nature of Babalon or delved into the philosophy of Solar Phallic Worship in any depth (a-huh huh huh!) will find many sentiments here they’re familiar with. This manifesto is delivered as:

A reply to those dishonest journalists who twist phrases to make the Idea seem ridiculous;
to those women who only think what I have dared to say;
to those for whom Lust is still nothing but a sin;
to all those who in Lust can only see Vice, just as in Pride they see only vanity.
Lust, when viewed without moral preconceptions and as an essential part of life’s dynamism, is a force.
