Take a closer look at the life of Mary Magdalene and other archetypal images of the primordial sacred-sexual role as filmmakers Kenneth Ray Stubbs, Ph.D. and Sarah Sher attempt to uncover the truth about one of the Bible's most compelling figures. Was Magdelene a redeemed prostitute as many believe, or is it possible that she was, in fact, a high priestess of a different religion with a special focus on fertility rituals. In a time when the contemporary prostitute no longer has a public arena in which to share her ceremonies openly and the death of tradition has effectively stifled the sacred mysteries, a variety of intimate practitioners including tantrikas, sexual healers, a porn star, a Native American shaman, and an Episcopal priest share their lives and visions while exploring one of the greatest mysteries ever known to man.
