How About Sex On The Beach?

Have you ever fantasized about having sex on a beach?  If so then maybe you should reconsider it………

A Florida jury on Monday convicted Jose Caballero, 40, and Elissa Alvarez, 20, on charges that they had sex on Bradenton Beach in broad daylight. They face up to 15 years behind bars and will have to register as sex offenders.

Each of them faced two charges of lewd and lascivious behavior, carrying a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison, the Bradenton Herald reported.

OKay I have a problem with this…….maybe they should have been a bit more discreet….but 15 years and a sex offender?  That should put the limber in his joint.

Witnesses watched them have sex……did they think about turning away?  The kids that may have seen the act…….most were under the age of five……bet not one of them had any idea what was happening until the parents went ape shit…….

The sex offender thing is what I question most.  It is like a good that wakes up from a hard drunk and has to pee so he goes to the nearest tree to do his business….the problem is the tree is located just outside a school yard…..should he be labeled a sex offender?

I say no…..because he did not set out to involve children in the act of peeing…..he did not do it intentionally because it was a school.  Why ruin this man;s life for being a boneheaded drunk?

The same with these two……I bet they did not pick the place to have sex because there were children there….it was probably a spur of the moment thing…….

This crack down on sex offenders is a good thing to protect children but at the same time they can ruin people’s lives that had NO intention of involving kids in what they were doing….they just had a brain fart..

I say if we want to crackdown on stupid activity then maybe the best place to start would be with our politicians……then move on from there……

Any thoughts?

But wait!  There’s more!

Does having lots of sex make you happy?  Wrong!

You’ve heard the message, seen the magazine covers: Having more sex will make you happier. A new study out of Carnegie Mellon University, however, suggests that the opposite is true, according to a post at Phys.org. In their experiment, researchers asked one group of married couples to have twice as much weekly sex as usual over a three-month period, and they gave no instructions to a second group. All the couples filled out surveys along the way, and, as Bustle notes, “this is where things get weird.” Those who had double the amount of sex reported lower levels of sexual enjoyment and happiness at the end of the experiment than they did at the beginning.

The lead researcher is the first to acknowledge that the reason might be because the couples were instructed to have more sex as part of a research experiment, not the most thrilling of circumstances. He elaborates, with some oddly specific advice: “If we ran the study again, and could afford to do it, we would try to encourage subjects into initiating more sex in ways that put them in a sexy frame of mind, perhaps with baby-sitting, hotel rooms, or Egyptian sheets, rather than directing them to do so.” Another researcher adds that couples should be less focused on numbers and more on creating the right environment when they do have sex. Or as Wired sums up: “The moral of the story, folks, is that it’s all about quality over quantity.” (Another study finds that millennials will have fewer sexual partners than their parents.)

May I see a show of hands of the people that believe this?

I will do my own research, thank you……..and to the researchers……BITE ME!

The Fascination With Sex

I am beginning to think that the GOP can only talk about sex when they are trying to define it for the rest of us…….like what Florida is trying to do……

What does “sexual intercourse” mean in Florida? The state’s Supreme Court justices are pondering the question in a case that threatens to weaken a 1986 law requiring HIV-positive people to reveal their infection before having “sexual intercourse.” A defense lawyer told the court yesterday that Florida’s laws have always used the term to describe traditional sex between a man and a woman, and not any other sexual activity by either gender. The case involves a man charged with a felony after failing to tell his male sex partner he was HIV-positive. The record shows that Gary Debaun’s partner asked him to take an HIV test, and that Debaun, who knew that he was infected, gave him fake test results showing he was free of the virus that causes AIDS.

“In the history of Florida law, the specific term ‘sexual intercourse’ has always been interpreted to mean reproductive sexual conduct,” said Debaun’s public defender, who’s trying to get the charge dropped. “It’s not the way that I’d want to define it, maybe—maybe not the way you’d want to define it—but that’s the way it’s always been in Florida law.” Most states legally require people with HIV to disclose the infection to sex partners, but the public defender told the justices that other states’ laws use the term “sexual activity” or specifically spell out sexual acts, rather than use Florida’s narrow language. Assistant Attorney General Jeffrey Geldens argued that it was clear that the statute was enacted with the intent to protect people who engaged in any kind of sexual activity.

This from the party that thinks the government has no business telling people what to do….as long it is what they, the GOP,  believe…..

But hold on!  Utah had to be part of the conversation……..

A Utah bill stating that unconscious people cannot consent to sex proved to be more controversial than expected when it came before a legislative committee earlier this week. Rep. Brian Greene wondered if it meant that somebody who had sex with an unconscious spouse could be charged with rape, saying a rape charge “makes sense in a first date scenario, but to me, not where people have a history of years of sexual activity,” the Salt Lake Tribune reports. After at least one other Republican voiced similar concerns, an attorney from the Utah Prosecution Council explained that under the bill, “consent is a decision that has to be made at the time of the act” and you “cannot give consent to sexual activity if you’re unconscious.”

Sex with an unconscious person “is rape. Period. End of story,” Democratic Rep. Brian King told the committee, according to the Tribune. Greene ended up voting for the bill and apologized for his comments yesterday, saying he abhors “sexual assault under any circumstances, including within marriage.” The director of the Rape Recovery Center tells USA Today she hadn’t expected a debate and was shocked by Greene’s comments. “He’s a lawyer, you think he would know better,” she says. “But with the kind of work we do, we realize that so many people don’t understand this issue.” The bill was introduced after a 2013 case where a man claimed he had sex with an unconscious neighbor on her porch to keep her warm and “save her life,” Politico reports.

See…..the GOP is a prudish bunch of sex addicts……..I know that sounds like an oxymoron……but the GOP still thinks it has a right to intervene in the bedroom……..

World Cup Best Celebration?

For if you are one of all but a handful of people that are unaware that the World Cup is going on……….it is and the US is still alive but they have a powerhouse coming up next week, Germany……..

Last World Cup I reported on what a Dutch porn star was doing to celebrate their wins…….and now with this World Cup there is another person willing to have sex for each win…….

Are you wondering why Chile is going so bonkers at the World Cup? Fans flocked to Brazil by the thousands, even though they didn’t have tickets. They stormed the stadium fences prior to today’s win over Spain, and were arrested by the dozens.

Seems that they’ve been worked up by one of the country’s biggest porn stars: Marlen Doll (above). Ms. Doll, in a moment of brilliant strategy, promised to engage select Chilean residents in an eight-hour “sex marathon” if her country defeated Australia in its first World Cup match. That of course happened, and she, reportedly, made good on the promise, even increasing the duration to 12 hours.

Then, she upped her game prior to Chile-Spain today. (Photo link NSFW).

And according to Doll, that is now also going to happen.

Keep an eye on it, because if Chile makes waves in the knockout stage, things could get more X-rated than they’ve ever been before.

Soccer fans re just so much better at celebrating than say Baseball fans……makes you want to be more of a fan….for oh so many reasons…….

It Makes A Comeback

Keeping with the weekend’s topic….SEX.  Many of history’s notables have died from a historically reoccurring disease…….Columbus, Capone, some say Pasteur….and No one is sure where it originated…..some say in monkeys and others are convinced with sheep……..whatever….it is making a comeback…….

Syphilis cases are rising sharply in the US, especially among gay and bisexual men, reports the CDC. The highest rates were among black men, but white and Hispanic men also saw noticeable increases, reports Reuters. From 2005 to 2013, the number of syphilis cases nearly doubled from 8,724 to 16,663, and 91% of those cases occurred among men in 2013. Over that same stretch, the annual rate rose from 2.9 to 5.3 cases per 100,000 people, reports NBC News.

“After being on the verge of elimination in 2000 in the United States, syphilis cases have rebounded,” says the CDC report. Researchers warn that the increase among gay men is worrisome because it suggests unsafe sex practices that could also spread HIV. The CDC recommends that men who have sex with anonymous or multiple partners get screened for syphilis at least once every six months. While rarely fatal, the disease can lead to blindness and stroke.

It looks like there is only one relatively safe form of sex…..if you want to avoid herpes or the clap or HIV and now syphilis…….the only safe form is……Phone sex!  Where’s the fun in that?  That gives a whole new definition of….oral sex……..

But this disease is NOT alone…..making a comeback are polio, TB, Measles………and others……….what could cause this resurgence of disease?

Surely someone would like to weigh in about here.

The More Noisy The Better?

It is the weekend and let’s talk about mankind’s favorite past time……SEX!  They may not admit it but everyone likes sex…..what’s the old saying…..”sex is dirty only if you are doing it right”.

most of us have had a noisy partner at some point in our life…..but there can be consequences for too much noise……….

There’s a noisy romp between the sheets and then there’s sex so loud it’s considered “stalking” your neighbors. That was the charge an Italian man apparently faced in court, after a dozen of his neighbors filed a civil suit complaining of his loud lovemaking sessions. They took issue with “screams and moans” that “disturbed the peace in the condominium and the building’s decorum,” the Local reports. Some translations of the local report on the case, like this one from the New York Daily News, indicate it was actually his girlfriend’s screams that those in the building found so offensive.

The 42-year-old reportedly tried to convince the judge that “stalking” and “noise” weren’t the same thing, and apparently claimed that he can’t help that he’s “too good at sex.” But for all his (noisy?) protestations, he ended up with a six-month jail sentence, which he plans to appeal. Believe it or not, this isn’t the first time noisy sex has resulted in a conviction. (Nor is it the only unusual sex-related case to be heard in Italian courts recently.)

Personally I think that is a bit extreme and here in the US could be considered……cruel and unusual punishment……

Remember back in your youth when they use to say….”he is thinking with the little head”?  Well there seems to be some evidence that brains are wired for sex……..

UCLA researchers say they’ve got the first physical evidence to support the notion that some people’s brains are wired for sex, reports the Los Angeles Daily News. In the study, they asked men and women how many sexual partners they’ve had, and they also showed them images that ranged from non-sexual to slightly sexual (like kissing) to explicitly sexual. The more partners a person had, the more likely their brains were to light up on EEGs when looking at those last two categories, reports Medical Xpress.

The researchers weren’t surprised that their subjects reacted to graphic images, but they were intrigued to find the correlation with the G-rated images, too. “If your brain responds very strongly even to very tame pictures of sex, then you seem to be easily sexually excited in the real world, too,” says lead researcher Nicole Prause. The results could help those naturally inclined toward the risque to be safer, she says, as per Time. “Being aware that if you are going out, and there is the possibility of having a new partner, and thinking about ways to not get too excited may sound silly, but managing that rather than ignoring it may help with better ways to control risky sexual behavior.” (Click to read about a recent survey finding that 17% of us would be OK having sex with a robot.)

Mississippi Leads The Way

Most of my regular readers are aware that I reside in the great state of Mississippi or as I call it…..”the cultural Wasteland”…….there is a sign at the borders of the state that read…..”Welcome to Mississippi….Set your clocks back 150 years”……….Mississippi has always been at the bottom of most lists like poverty, education, income and health…….and the state has a large portion of the population that is incarcerated or has been in the past……..and in my incessant desire to know all things political I ran across this little tidbit about my state…..

(Newser) – Only six states allow prisoners conjugal visits—and the state where the practice began roughly a century ago, Mississippi, is poised to halt (but not legally ban) those visits Feb. 1. The prison commissioner in the state, where 155 of some 22,000 inmates had such visits last year, blames budget issues as well as “the number of babies being born possibly as a result.” The New York Times speaks to the spouses who treasure the time, even if it’s brief and less than comfortable. “It’s not romantic, but it doesn’t matter,” says the wife of an Arkansas inmate; she drives eight hours to see her husband, who is due for release in 2022. “Obviously they did something wrong. But they are human, too. So are we.”

Another spouse notes that ending the practice denies her the ability to have children in the future. “I feel like they are taking away my choice,” she says. Vocativ and the Times offer the basics on how such visits work:

  • They’re still also allowed in California, Connecticut, New Mexico, New York, and Washington; that’s down from 17 states in 1993. (The Times piece implies Connecticut’s program is not currently active.)
  • The practice began in the early 1900s at the Mississippi State Penitentiary, whose warden thought they would prod black inmates to toil harder in the fields; prostitutes were often brought in.
  • Today, inmates must be married and have a clean behavior record (generally no fighting, swearing, etc., in the last six months) to qualify; they usually have to apply for the visits, which occur only in medium- to lower-security prisons; federal prisons allow no such visits.
  • “Extended family visits” can last up to 24 hours for well-behaved prisoners nearing release. Mississippi has recently allowed only one-hour visits, the Times notes.
  • The visits occur in private apartments inside prison walls, which are usually outfitted with sheets, soap, towels, and condoms. The prison does not provide food.
  • California and New York allow same-sex couples to participate in the practice within marriages or civil unions.
  • The visits are largely free; Washington state participants pay $10.

Conjugal visits are permitted in some other countries—not always successfully.

And now you know way too much information on whether inmates get nookie or not…….happy?

I bring this up for a reason, I personally do not give two shits in Hell if inmates get laid or not……I bring it up because of Mississippi.  The state sucks and this is the best the GOP controlled legislature can do.  This is a prime example of the type of government you get when you let one party control everything.

One party rule will destroy a state or a nation…..keep that in mind.

Is It Really An Addiction?

There are many addictions….like drugs, booze adrenalin and of course that addiction that all men love to hear about….SEX ADDICTION!

It is fought with many different solutions….therapy, hypnosis, drugs (but that could create a whole new set of addictions) and just go about screwing your brains out…..every man looks for that perfect nymphomaniac to keep him smiling for a long time…..but there is a new study and research that may shine some light onto the subject…….

(Newser) – The term “sex addiction” might get tossed around a lot these days as a way to explain some not-so-classy behavior of the Anthony Weiner-Tiger Woods variety, but is it really an addiction on par with drugs or alcohol? The first study to explore brain responses in people who describe themselves as hypersexual suggests otherwise, reports UCLA. Researchers there showed the subjects—39 men and 13 women—sexual images, and discovered that their brains didn’t respond in the same way that, say, a cocaine addict would respond to images of cocaine.

“Most people describe high-frequency sexual problems as an ‘addiction’—that’s how the public and even many clinicians talk about it,” one of the researchers tells Slate. “But this data challenges the addiction model and forces us to reconsider how we think and talk about these problems.” The subjects have higher libidos, or sexual desire, but not necessarily a clinical medical problem. They still need help, but if further studies verify this first one, then the type of help they’ll get will be affected. All of which might be OK, writes Jillian Keenan at Slate. “If we turn every single quirk of human sexuality into a ‘disease,’ after all, then we’re all screwed.” The study is in the journal Socioaffective Neuroscience & Psychology.

Now I know my loyal readers will an opinion on this turn of events……speak up!
