Thursday 2nd June 2004 - Unexplained Powers: Sexual telepathy
Telepathy literally means distant feeling, from the Greek words “tele”, as in telephone and television, and “pathy”, as in sympathy and empathy.
Sometimes erotic feelings seem to be transmitted telepathically, as David and his girlfriend found. He told me: “My erotic thoughts about her stimulated her sexually at a distance of a hundred miles, with no prearrangement.”
Separated lovers may often think erotically about each other, and coincidences can happen by chance. Rigorous experimental research on sexual telepathy would be difficult to organise, and as far as I know, no one has even tried.
Less happily, some people seem to pick up telepathically when their partners are being unfaithful. Ben had just got home from work when he had a vision of his girlfriend having sex with another man. Ben phoned her. He said: “She was shocked to hear from me and didn’t want to talk because she had someone in bed with her.”
Kylie’s husband was on a business trip to the United States when she felt a sense of panic and despair. She told me: “I couldn’t sleep that night and saw images of my husband making love to someone else. I decided to write down what I experienced. The next night the same thing happened. When he came home he read what I had written in those sleepless nights and confirmed it all.” Fortunately, Kylie and her husband overcame this crisis and are still happily married.
Sometimes people try to communicate by erotic telepathy with their lovers, but probably no one attempts to communicate their infidelity. Telepathy does not depend on deliberate intention, but on emotional bonds. It is not surprising that it works with sexual feelings.
Rupert Sheldrake would like to hear from readers who have experienced sexual telepathy. Email Rupert Sheldrake's researcher, firstname.lastname@example.org with subject heading: Rupert Sheldrake.
