King Solomon Meets Annie Sprinkle

Given that we now have a method of sorts—hooker hermeneutics—I would now like to apply it, retrospectively, to another text concerning Solomon; not the one concerning the two prostitutes (1 Kings 3:16–28) but the one about the Queen of Sheba (1 Kings 10:1–13), albeit set within those fascinating first 11 chapters of 1 Kings.1 However, I propose to give these hooker hermeneutics my own twist, first by means of three psychoanalytic concepts (the censor, libidinal investment, and the return of the repressed), then by uncovering the repressed sexual codes of 1 Kings 1–11, and finally through a ficto-critical encounter between Sheba-cum-Annie-Sprinkle and Solomon.
