p. 77 "since the 1930s at least, Heinlein had been an adherent of [quoted from Gifford : Robert A. Heinlein, p. 187] “the philosophies of Bertrand Russell and H. G. Wells that stated that free love would cure many of the world’s ills”."

p. 89 literary derivation of the 5-sacraments system in the Church of All Worlds : "Four of the five practices… ["‘Thou are God/ess’, sharing water, nests and sexual freedom"] derive directly from Stranger in a Strange Land, the 1961 science fiction by Robert Heinlein in which the name‘Church of All Worlds’ first appears." (quoted from Gabriel 2006, p. 268b)

{This system of 5 sacraments is also in accord with the Kaula system of the 5 ma-kara-s, wherein, "mudra" (stamping a name as sigil) = "Thou are God/ess"; "matsya" ('fish') = "sharing water"; "mamsa" ('meat') = "nests" (because in the Bird-Nester myth ("B-NM") the nest is that of eagles, meat-eaters); and "maithuna" ('coupling') = "sexual freedom".}

Another Author of Erotic Utopia Approved by Heinlein : namely, J. Neil Schulman

"His 1983 novel, The Rainbow Cadenza – which portrayed a future that replaces conscripting young men for military service with conscripting young women for sexual service – received accolades from Nathaniel Branden, Robert A. Heinlein, and Colin Wilson."

The plot of this novel, The Rainbow Cadenza  :- "the pandemic incidence of sexual assaults resulted in the rationing of sexual contacts between men and women, which evolved into the Peace Corps. i.e., prostitutes for the state."


"Every libertarian should read it. It should win the Prometheus Award."--Robert A. Heinlein, at the 1983 L-5 Society Conference, to Libertarian Futurist Society Chairman Michael Grossberg

"I found it absolutely fascinating ... A splendid book."--Colin Wilson"

[Colin Wilson is an author whose book Alien Dawn we have excerpted.]


the writings of Robert A. Heinlein, are frequently credited with coining the term ‘polyamorous’. ... “Robert Heinlein depicts a group where bacchanalia, mate-swapping, and communal living are wholly moral” (Murstein 522). The fictional Martian, Valentine Michael Smith, formed the Church of All Worlds ... . ... In 1968, Zell and his followers incorporated The Church of All Worlds, the same name used by Valentine Michael Smith in Stranger in a Strange Land”.

[/Valentine Michael Smith/ ("M.V.Smith") is furthermore the pseudonym used as name for the author of Psychedelic Chemistry (Loompanics (1981) --<>, P.O. Box 1197, Port Townsend, WA 98368). ]

Tropical sites of promulgation of "Sexual Freedom League"-style doctrines (viz., temporary spouse-trading) include the French Congo, Irian Jaya (west New Guinea), and Amazonia.
