Bene Gesserit and White Tigress

Postby jlacivita » 15 Jul 2008 00:00

Been reading a little bit about the Taoist White Tigress philosophies and I think there's some strong similarities to the Bene Gesserit: Sexual superiority of women, but they still need to train a man to complete them and give them the one thing they can't get themselves.

Check it out if you're looking for a new thing to see Dune connections in :)

PS: i prolly won't be around here often but wanted to share this with the dunenovels forum members I liked the most back in the day, and you guys all seem to be moderators here, so this place must be pretty cool (that and the chigger is allowed in)

:D Hiyahowahyahowyabeen?

Taoist White Tigress philosophies? I can't say that I've ever heard of this. I'm assuming it's Chinese. Which era?

I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA

I...had written a bunch of Star Wars and X-Files books...that proved not just that I'm a hack, but that I could write in somebody else's universe... —KJA

The White Tigress adepts use sexual techniques to increase their flow of chi. There are still some White Tigress chapters in existence now, and they're reserved to women only.

We shouldn't! :D

(But, um, who was it again spread around the idea we should? ;) )

Why, I'm sure there're some White Tigresses who could, uh...damn, there's no polite way to say it, is there? :oops:

I wish I could have been with you that one last time.
