Links Between Sexuality And Eating And The Second Chakra
Sex And The Second Chakra
There are definite links between sexuality and eating and the second chakra, the sacral chakra. The experience of taste is governed by the second chakra, as well as the emotions and sexuality, sex. At a basic survival level, taste helps determine what is edible versus what is non-edible. However, humans were living in groups and had developed a consistent food supply, a whole culture, as well as food rituals around the world, were developed. Family and group meal times became a time of bonding, food for special occasions, and holiday food traditions were created to celebrate specific events and rites of passage.
Are You An Emotional Eater?
There are definite links between emotions and eating. The very first relationship any human being develops is with its Mother. The suckling instinct helps forge this mother-child bond. In addition to eating, this primal relationship is also based on emotional communication. The baby has no language, but it has its feelings and the ability to make sounds to express itself. So a whole emotional dance evolves between the mother and child, and it is focused on feeding and other survival issues. For example, perhaps the mother will overfeed her baby if she wants it to sleep or feed it when it isn’t hungry when she wants it to be quiet.
Later on, people may take what they learned from the dynamic of this early relationship and continue to play the program. For example, if the mother provided food whenever the baby cried regardless of the cause of the emotional outburst then the child may learn to self-medicate unhappy feelings by over-eating. Or if the mother tried to teach the baby not to cry by leaving it alone, then a sense of unworthiness could be coupled with a tendency to under-nourish as an adult.

Did You Know – Sex And Eating Are Connected
There is also a link between sexuality and eating. We eat with our lips, tongue, and mouths, but we also kiss with them. Some scientists hypothesize that kissing evolved from feeding rituals between animal mothers and their young, wherein mothers would chew and break down food before passing it directly to their offspring by mouth. Out of that gesture grew a universal sign of love and affection.
Sex And Eating Stimulate Similar Hormonal Responses
There are biological reactions that are stimulated by a passionate kiss, such as increased levels of neurotransmitters (e.g. dopamine, which is involved in craving and desire; and serotonin, which elevates the mood). These same neurotransmitters are involved in food cravings and alterations in mood associated with food. So the film “9.5 weeks” was not so far off the mark, when it combined the idea of eating and sexuality.
Kissing also causes a jump in the hormone oxytocin. High levels of oxytocin in new parenthood foster lifelong attachment between mother and child, but its release during orgasm and triggers attachment between couples.
The second chakra is associated with the limbic system in the brain, a place associated with animal instincts and which is also associated with the hormones mentioned above (e.g. dopamine, serotonin, and oxytocin).
