Definition - What does Erotic Power mean?

Erotic power is power from the erotic. It is something associated mainly with women and the spiritual plane. It is power that should be harnessed. After all, even today, women are still subject to abuse, vilification, and devaluation. By harnessing one's erotic power, one can fight personal and societal oppression that's rooted to male-centric notions of power.

After all, there is strength in the feminine, even as society continues to underestimate it.
