Christmas Mistletoe and Arthur & Merlin & Women

Pliny the Elder connected the the people of the old way of the druids and mistletoe.

The Christians tended to be against sex because they were over-engrossed with the supernatural and sex was all too natural for them. 

The people of the old way of the druids were naturally for sex because... well, because it is natural to be for sex.

And so, among Christians, the druid-mistletoe connection gave mistletoe sexual connotations: these still echo in the Christmas tradition of kissing under the mistletoe.

What has this to do with Arthur and Merlin?

One reason Arthur and Merlin are famous is because they were among the last prominent men [sic] standing for the old way of the druids before Christianity took control.

There were women druids too, of course, but they were written out of the picture, mores the pity. Like mistletoe, women connoted sex to Christian men, and so... see above re Christians and the supernatural.
