Freudian psychoanalytic theory states that the opposite of the human death drive is the sexual instinct. I’m racking my brain and that’s the the only possible explanation for having a naked woman drape herself on a coffin. Polish casket maker Lindner, who put together the erotic calendar for 2014, hopes to make death sexier to consumers. “For this calendar we came back to nature, which we express with perfect harmony between Lindner coffins and natural wood, blue sea, red flowers, green fields and beauty of the female body,” said a spokesman for the company.
Yeah, Freud probably would have been way into this by this sexy coffin calendar, but the Polish Catholic Church is NOT. And neither am I. It’s causing me existential unease. [Daily Star UK]
