Ultimately, religion, both Eastern and Western, both Christian Bride Mysticism and Tantra Yoga, focuses the divine adoration on the 'Lord', on Christ or Shiva. This is easy to follow when you are in a female body, but surely it gets very complicated when you are in a male body, or when you are in a female body, but your sexuality is of the same gender? And this regales the experience to the realm of the mind only, not an embodiment. And, in the hands of power, it becomes a weapon with which to inflict shame and judgement.
Thus the highly erotic mystical marriage, is used to not elevate the sexual or bodily experience to that of a sacred and holy one, but to an insubordinate position, along with women, devotees and members of the Church or Guru.
