Continuing a prior essay, this effort attempts to explain why deception and applied antipathy prosper as functions of maladjusted sexual development. It integrates social, physio- and psychological aspects of human developmental wholeness to suggest that trust is at the core of human consciousness (sensorium) and essential to individual and commonweal health. Robust evidence shows that trust is vital to human sexuality and that diverse erotic and sexual orientations are exogenously caused anomalous dysfunctions or maladjustments that increasingly plague a continuum of otherwise normative development and variation. The writer suggests the great sexology muddle supports a post-modern mindset that supplants beneficial and justly informed social order with mistrust and misguidance. The paper is essentialist in that it describes ‘what is done’ in and by a society that cannot be trusted in contrast to ideals that cannot be attained in the face of mass deception, ignorance and narcissism. I therefore agree with Foucault that the political sphere derives from sexuality’s primal manipulation and/or influence on all of human commerce. This essay therefore informs an emerging discipline of political ponerology with a view to improve our understanding of the hetero vs. LGBT sexology perspective and political dynamic.
