People of my age will recall the song from the drug days of Jefferson Airplane (ask me where that name came from sometime) but this is about the sex blow-up dolls like Nikki the Greek Goddess (49.95 plus shipping and handling)…….and of course I had to know where did these inflatable lovers originate……you may be surprised……
The Nazis invented the worst thing ever: the assembly-line death factory. But they also invented something else, perhaps the only legacy of theirs that endures to this very day. During World War II, Hitler’s war machine created the world’s first sex doll: Borghild.
The “field-hygienic project” was an initiative of Himmler, who regarded the doll as a “counterbalance” to the sexual drive of his storm troopers. In one of his letters, he mentions the “unnecessary losses” the Wehrmacht had suffered in France, inflicted by street prostitutes. “The greatest danger in Paris are the wide-spread and uncontrolled whores, picking up clients in bars, dance halls and other places. It is our duty to prevent soldiers from risking their health, just for the sake of a quick adventure”. One assumes Himmler also wanted to stop any racial dilution of the great German army.
The world’s first sex doll – or “gynoid” – was built in 1941 by a team of craftsmen from Germany’s Hygiene Museum in Dresden. The project was supervised by a famous technician, Franz Tschakert. He was the “father of the woman of glass”, which happened to be the sensation of the 1930s International Hygiene Exhibition.
Between June 1940 – 1941, IG Farben had already developed a number of ”skin-friendly polymers” for the SS. Their special characteristics: high-tensile strength and elasticity.
Now I have given you the most useless information that you could possibly be exposed to in this life……do tell what thoughts are racing around your brain.
Keeping with a theme for this weekend……I will give you yet more of what we all craave…..SEX!
Newser) – One of the week’s most salacious stories got its start in the journal Plos One with this headline: “Cell Wall Assembly and Intracellular Trafficking in Plant Cells Are Directly Affected by Changes in the Magnitude of Gravitational Acceleration.” Of course, it wasn’t until the Daily Mail got hold of it that the story took off, with this slightly revised headline: “Bad news for 220-mile high club: Researchers find sex in space could lead to life-threatening illnesses.” This led to a spate of sex-in-space-can-kill-you stories. So what gives? It turns out that amorous space travelers probably don’t have to worry—unless they’re having sex for the specific purpose of producing offspring, explains Daily Kos.
Essentially, the researchers studied plant sex in zero gravity and found big problems in the reproduction process related to how cells communicate with each other. They did not draw any conclusions about human sex, but the possibility of similar problems affecting people can’t be ruled out yet, says LiveScience. “What does this mean?” asks Daily Kos. “It means we may not be able to colonize the Moon or Mars anytime soon, not until we lick many, many problems.” But at least the couple who might be blasting off to Mars should be able to … unwind.
What can I say? At least this is more entertaining than the speeches out of CPAC.
My last day of rest and relaxation……surely there is something that can pop a smile on your face before the new week begins……
Yes, there is! Well, it brought a chuckle to me……from the Newser.com website…..
Sometimes environmental toxins can come from places—and in places—you least expect. The Green Party of Germany is hoping you don’t forget about dildos. “Many dildos and other sex toys such as vibrators contain a high amount of phthalates, other carcinogenic plasticizers and toxic substances,” states a new report by 10 Green Party members in Germany’s parliament. The substances, which enter the body through mucous membranes, can lead to infertility, hormone imbalances, diabetes, and obesity, warn the reps. They’re demanding new laws to make sex toys safer for the 20% of the German population who use them, notes Der Spiegel. But the call for safer sex toys has already received a limp response from officials of the center-right government, who refer to the products in questions only as “erotic items.” Few if any scientific studies back the Greens’ concerns, says the government’s response. And if there’s a problem, it would be better to address it Euro-zone wide, officials add. “Ducking the issue is not an option when health risks are involved,” countered a Green spokesman. Denmark has already issued a health warning about sex toys. It urges covering sex toys with condoms for protection and to avoid products made of PVC.
So basically, a rubber wang is just as dangerous for disease as the real thing……about the only type of sex left that does not need a condom is…..phone sex! And I guess it would depend on whose phone you use, huh?
From time to time I try to lighten up the stuff to keep from going completely batshit….and in doing so I usually post of sex thingy…..oh well…today is NO different….
Do YOU need sex?
The short answer is you bet your ass you do…..but with that said….how can we tell if we are approaching critical mass?
First of all, Times of India is reporting:
Practically, a non-existing sexual life causes a lot of reactions, more or less explicable, and in some extreme cases it can lead to severe physical and philological reactions: skin itches, irritations, anger etc. You could end up hurting the ones beside you, emotionally or even physically, because you did not “read” one of your body’s cries for help.
Once you fully and completely understand your body’s message: “I need sex!” it will be a lot easier for you to identify the time periods these unpleasant symptoms occur. If you manage to do this, you will also be able to prevent them. Of course, these intervals vary from person to person, and they are dependent to certain factors, such as age, sex, lifestyle, physical condition, pregnancy, menopause etc.
All in all, make sure you take some time and really analyze yourself and your body, your needs and your desires, and that way you will manage to understand the course of action you have to take so that everything returns on its’ right normal “path” again.
Oh crap! But how can I know if there is a need?
- Excessive nervousness
- Long states of unjustified anxiety, migraines
- Permanent stress
- Lack of food appetite
- Lack of the need to sleep
- Contradictory feelings regarding certain persons
- Frequent sexual fantasies, especially during nighttime.
Check the list…check it twice……
Dammit! I need to get laid!
The Prez is talking…..the troops are shooting…..Congress is doing nothing….Teabaggers are ……well you know? So, I will attempt to lighten up the mood, at least for a day….it is Sexy Sunday!
Okay Ladies pay attention………
The exerpts are from an article written by Philippe Djegal:
Sex is known to relieve stress, lower blood pressure, and even lead to weight loss, but doctors say that, for some women, sexual intercourse can be harmful and sometimes deadly.”Hopefully, it’s caught early enough that it’s not fatal, but certainly as you go along in the natural history of this disease with continued exposure, symptoms usually come on faster and are more severe,” said Dr. Jonathan Buttram, a certified allergist and immunologist.
Itching, hives, difficulty breathing, vomiting, diarrhea, horrible uterine cramping and an inflammation of the lining of the rectum are all possible symptoms of seminal plasma hypersensitivity.
Doctors say the typical patient is a woman having intercourse for the first time. But, there have been cases where women who have been having sex with the same partner for years have developed this allergic reaction.
The best way to avoid this condition, health officials say, is to not have sex, which for some could be quite a stretch, or you could always fall back on old reliable. (That would be to take things in your own hands)
It’s an extremely rare, but painful truth for some women. Doctors say if you are allergic to seminal fluid.
See guys your wedding tackle could be a lethal weapon………does that mean that a tattoo should be on the twig and berries that says “use of this item could be hazardous to your health”?
It is another one of those weeks where there was a tempest of accusatiopns from both sides and absolutely NOTHING was accomplished in Washington….looks like all were just farting around until they can have yet another break from doing as little as possible and getting paid for that action…..not a bad job if you can get it.
For that reason I have another Sexy Sunday report for my readers enjoy.
This latest tidbit is from an article in Reuters:
Farmers in an eastern Indian state have asked their unmarried daughters to plow parched fields naked in a bid to embarrass the weather gods to bring some badly needed monsoon rain, officials said on Thursday.Witnesses said the naked girls in Bihar state plowed the fields and chanted ancient hymns after sunset to invoke the gods. They said elderly village women helped the girls drag the plows.
“They (villagers) believe their acts would get the weather gods badly embarrassed, who in turn would ensure Banke Bazaar town.by sending rains,” Upendra Kumar, a village council official, said from Bihar’s remote
Now if you think about it…the US has some of its worst droughts since the 1920′s…if this works in India…I say let us try it here….besides naked women doing work in the fields has got to be more interesting than watching some over weight redneck on a tractor….Just a thought. The only problem would be that we probably would not see all the “goodies” because of the massive tatoos. Oh well……..
The news is slow, so that makes room for another edition of Sexy Sunday.
In a report recently in the BBC:
A Polish Catholic priest has published a book which provides married couples with a theological and practical guide to spicing up their sex lives.
In his book, Sex as you don’t know it: for married couples who love God, Father Ksawery Knotz aims to sweep away the strait-laced attitudes many hold.
Sex in marriage, the Franciscan friar explains, should not be boring but “saucy, surprising and fantasy packed”.
The book, which has the backing of the Polish Catholic Church, has been a hit.
Father Kaswery Knotz says in his “Kama Sutra of the Catholiuc Church”:
“Every act – a type of caress, a sexual position – with the goal of arousal is permitted and pleases God. During sexual intercourse, married couples can show their love in every way, can offer one another the most sought-after caresses.”
“Calling sex a celebration of the marriage sacrament raises its dignity in an exceptional way. Such a statement shocks people who learned to look at sexuality in a bad way. It is difficult for them to understand that God is also interested in their happy sex life and in this way gives them his gift.”
But Father Knotz stresses the book does not differ from the Church’s view on sex. He discourages the use of contraceptives, saying they “lead a married couple outside of Catholic culture and into a completely different lifestyle”.
He also dismisses those that have questioned the competency of a celibate monk to write about sex, saying his experience comes from counselling married couples and from running a website giving sexual advice for almost a year.
There are just so many trashy comments that I could make right now but I will leave those to others. BTW, I am still shaking my head at this one.
All the political bickering has played out for the week……Specter will be on every channel telling his side of the story….and the flu……the flu is still the flu. So to lighten up things…it is Sexy Sunday!
Talk about men having a bad day!
The Women’s Development Organization says it is coordinating a sex strike by thousands of Kenyan women to resolve ongoing political turmoil.
Rukia Subow, chairwoman of the organization, said the planned weeklong strike could work as sex is an activity that spans social position, tribal affiliations and political parties, The Daily Telegraph (Britain) reported Wednesday.
“We have looked at all issues which can bring people to talk and we have seen that sex is the answer,” Subow said. “It does not know tribe, it does not have a (political) party and it happens in the lowest households.”
Sucks being a man in Kenya!
Teen sex is fraught with perils, and not just the physical kind.
While sexually transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancy are the two most talked-about risks, a new book says young people having sex may want to add this to their list of concerns: teenage sex is bad for the brain.
That’s what the authors of Hooked: New Science on How Casual Sex is Affecting Our Children are saying, anyways.
In a message clearly intended to promote abstinence in youth, the authors of Hooked say that young people should wait to have sex until their mid-20s, once their brains have developed fully, and are in a “lifelong relationship.”
Otherwise, neurochemicals released during sexual activity may cause problems later in life.
During sex, a woman’s brain produces oxytocin and a male’s brain produces vasopressin, hormones that cause the sexes to bond with each other.
Both sexes also experience a dopamine rush — dopamine is a hormone that makes you feel good and rewards you for exciting behaviour.
However, for young people whose brains are susceptible to pattern-forming behaviours, that may set them up for a lifetime of seeking the thrill and reward from sex, and make it hard for them to attach themselves long-term to a partner later in life.
Well, if one must be addicted, IU think that sex is much more preferable than, say, heroin. Just a thought.
Once again it is Sunday and not much new to report…..Sex is always a good subject…..It is Sexy Sunday!
Intrinsa was recently licensed in the UK for the treatment of women, who have gone through the menopause as a result of womb and ovary removal, and who are subsequently experiencing a drop in sex drive.
The condition is referred to as hypoactive sexual desire disorder or HSDD for short.
There is some evidence to suggest that a fall in sex drive after the menopause might be linked to low levels of circulating testosterone.
Intrinsa is prescribed for women with HSDD, who are receiving oestrogen replacement therapy. It delivers a daily dose of testosterone from a patch replaced twice weekly and worn continuously on the lower abdomen.
The key trials on testosterone patches have involved highly selective groups of women – excluding, for example, those with various mental or physical conditions that could affect sex drive, says DTB. And in some trials a diagnosis of HSDD was made on the basis of short, unvalidated questionnaires.
There was also a large placebo response in the studies, with significant numbers of women not treated with the patch reporting improved sex drive, which indicates that low hormone levels might not have been the problem, says DTB.
Furthermore, the improvements were small. And the fact that some of the women were already having sex twice or three times a month before they entered the trials, raises questions about whether they really had a poor sex drive in the first place.
