About “agapetica”.

So, the ancient Greeks supposedly understood several different forms of love.

“Philía” or friendship-love, “storgē” or family-love, “éros” or sexual-love, and “agápe” or transcendent-love.

Obviously, the term “erotica” is derived from “éros”. Due to the sexual nature of the love being depicted or poetically transmitted.

However, the concept of “agápe” could indeed be utilized as the basis for a new kind of “erotica” which goes beyond the bodily pleasures of “éros”, and aims towards the pleasures of profundity.

That would be “agapetica”.

Now,
the full-length story "Yggdrasylvan Yden And Ylyzion", that I just released here,
only has a certain amount of “agapetica”, in comparison with the volume of “erotica” that it contains.

But…
…it seemed important enough to make a clear note of this concept,
because I feel that there is MUCH more worthwhile territory to explore with “agapetica”.

Way beyond what I’ve managed to do.

So,
for the sake of anyone who might become inspired, I wrote this little message.

For a little extra reading on those four concepts of ancient-Greek love-conceptualizations,
this article is helpful:

From there,
I think that the ideal of "agápe",
in conjunction with the Buddhist notion of "metta" or loving-kindness compassion for all beings,
has a huge wellspring for creativity,
and even beyond erotic MMD,
if people put these forms of love into use in their own lives...
this world would become a MUCH better place.

Finally,
I'd just like to impart my sincere appreciation to all the artists who have shared their videos & images.

As well as the rest of the community for sharing their thoughts.

You have personally impacted & inspired me in various ways.

Hopefully my humble "gifts" can reciprocate that, even to a small extent.
