Book, Theory Blame Misplaced Reproductive Energy for Global COVID Spike in Extremism and Authoritarianism
SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO. December 12th, 2023 - The book “Sex On the Wrong Brain” and website of the same name claim sexism, racism, authoritarianism are fueled by misplaced reproductive impulses and can be reduced with sex education.

“When the health agencies of New York City and Australian states NSW and Queensland suggested masturbation as a safe sex alternative during the COVID pandemic they should have specified which hand to use,” says author Ard Falten.

Sex on the wrong brain, or SOWB, is presented as a paradigmatic unified theory of thought and behavior based on the simple premise that it makes a difference which hand humans learn sex with. The theory suggests using the right hand has caused thousands of years of greed, authoritarianism, patriarchy, and war, and is responsible for the mentality that now threatens Earth with global warming.

“COVID-19 was a mass sex on the wrong brain event,” says the author. “It’s a self-reinforcing problem. Social distancing and lock-downs accelerated what authoritarians always do. Whether it’s Texas or Russia, the Roman or British empires, Nazi Germany, Iran, Saudi Arabia, China, or the Taliban, the built-in reason to repress sex and control women and reproductive rights is to increase frustration in the right handed men that authoritarian leaders need to serve them.”

According to the theory using the right hand, which is connected to the left brain hemisphere, associates impatient satisfaction-demanding reproductive urges with left brain-dominant thinking that is supposed to be patient and objective.

Three major symptoms are described:
  • When sex fuels mental processes such as problem solving and logic it pushes for quick easy answers, premature conclusion, and the closure of certainty
  • When sex is associated with numbers, math, and measurement it wants more, bigger, faster, and that increases greed and materialism
  • Since reproductive energy is diverted and used for unrelated purposes it can increase sexual dysfunction
The website points out that authoritarianism is sometimes measured with the Uncertainty Avoidance Index. It introduces the Certainty Deficit Disorder (CDD) and blames it for a wide spectrum of extreme and anti-democratic behavior motivated by an irrational need for certainty and a corresponding fear of uncertainty.

The certainty/uncertainty dynamic is used to explain authoritarianism:
  • As the need for certainty and closure increases so does fear of uncertainty, change, diversity, unpredictability, and nature
  • Certainty becomes more important than truth
  • Leaders must be certain, confident, decisive, and always right and their followers interpret that as intelligence and strength
  • To create certainty, authoritarian leaders and ideologies offer order and control and simplify the world into binary absolutes - black or white, right or wrong, good or evil - which fuels intolerance, bigotry, hate, extremism, and radicalism
  • Complicated uncertainty-producing problems like global warming are denied, ignored, and simplified
  • As chaos and uncertainty increase so does the value of the certitude projected by autocratic leaders and their symbols
The website claims that associating sex with punishment and guilt helps authoritarian societies establish thought patterns that divert reproductive energy to reward creation and rationalization of non-existent certainty and that can promote lying, denial, and hypocrisy, as well as contribute to sexual dysfunction.
  • Lists numerous factors that effect SOWB levels in individuals and populations including ancestry, gender, libido, frustration, etc.
  • Explains why females generally have less SOWB
  • Suggests there may be implications for artificial intelligence
  • Claims SOWB can worsen with age as SOWB-based thought patterns establish and opportunity for real sex diminishes
  • Suggests people descended from older civilizations may have more SOWB and may people with less SOWB as inferior or threatening, contributing to misogyny and bigotry
  • Suggests culture, social stratification, discrimination, and religion have been used to increase SOWB
  • Suggests SOWB can trigger violence and mental illness
  • Claims SOWB explains why human ancestors evolved from 50% to 90% right handed
  • Claims SOWB levels were low for 99% of human evolution but increased significantly in recent centuries in heavily populated areas as civilizations began to increase sexual repression
  • Suggests a broad range of evolutionary implications and possibilities for research
“There’s evidence that some of our ancestors knew about sex on the wrong brain,” says Falten. ”It may seem wacky and even outrageous to some but there are wide ranging implications for democracy and progress. For instance, if artificial intelligence is based on human thinking, can it get sex on the wrong brain too?”

To reach a wider audience the book and a screenplay weave the SOWB theory and implications into a science fiction adventure comedy set in a near future threatened by global warming. The book was reviewed by Simon Barrett: “Yes, I like ‘Sex On the Wrong Brain’ a lot. If you like Douglas Adams and don’t mind a few ‘smutty’ bits, you will enjoy this book.” The screenplay has been selected as a finalist in various contests.

The book Sex On the Wrong Brain is available from major online book vendors and Amazon.
