Yeah, it's clearly trying to tap into and commodify the virgin/whore dynamic. What you were saying about Mary's sexuality revealing that all sexuality is holy is interesting. I'd say, via the lens of reading later (but still early) Christian theological reflection on this, that there is something about the Theotokos that is seen as a sign of the *transformation* of sexuality, specifically that it isn't contained by sexual complementarity. But the question is how open-ended the Theotokos symbolic allows that transformation of sexuality to be -- I'm honestly not sure.
