Closing Thought–18Oct18

We had yet another round of the sexual assault of someone in the government or wants to be in the government…..

I found a Repub candidate that is the best example of the Party today, the party of ignorant old white men……

This guy thinks rape can be prevented by educating women……

When Senate Republicans voted this weekend to confirm alleged sexual predator Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, they proved once again that the GOP is the party of rape.

And just in case you thought that was a fluke, Republican congressional candidate Denver Riggleman stepped in on Monday to claim that rape and sexual assault can be prevented by “educating females.”

During the fifth debate in Virginia’s 5th Congressional District between Riggleman and his Democratic opponent, veteran journalist Leslie Cockburn, an audience member asked both candidates how they proposed to reduce incidences of rape and sexual assault.

Seriously?  Once again it is a woman’s fault that she is raped…the man is an innocent by-stander according to the GOP and its nominees…..

Have you heard anything so fucking ignorant in your life?

And then I did…….

former Indiana state lawmaker, who once proudly identified himself as the most “conservative member” of the legislature in the state that gave the country Vice President Mike Pence, used a passage in the Bible to dismiss women who claim they have been raped.

“Only fools or fanatics or feminists (but then I repeat myself) say that all female sexual accusations against men should be believed. Period,” Boys wrote, before adding, “A false accusation can destroy a man’s family, finances, and future. All sexual assaults should be seriously looked at and any rapist should be executed as in bygone years and any false accuser should be branded with an L on her forehead and horse-whipped out of town (figuratively).”

But Boys added a caveat by citing a few choice passages from the Bible.

“Some common sense definitions are necessary regarding this accusation,” he explained. “Rape is having sex with a woman while she screams for help. No scream, no rape according to Deuteronomy 22:23-24. Ford says Kavanaugh held his hand over her mouth so did she scream for help when his hand was elsewhere?”

Wow!  Only if the woman screams?  Wow!

Just wait another GOPer will open his mouth and insert both feet…..I have confidence in my prediction.

GOP is choke full of angry old men and the sooner they die off the better off the country will be…..a bit harsh I know….but as they say….the truth hurts!

Those Sex Dolls

I have been writing this blog daily since 2006 my most popular posts have been ones about sex….the post that has the most hits of all times is the one I wrote entitled “Watermelon Makes You Horny” (I just wish some of my more serious posts were that popular)….and since it is the weekend and I must post something that has nothing to do with a trial or a “tell all” book or some sand box pissing contest….I will go to an old reliable…..SEX!

It seems that there may be a problem brewing for Japan when it comes to sex………

As Japanese birth rates plummet amid a generational fertility crisis, experts have fingered an explosion in sex dolls as an emerging threat to the country’s already-dire population problem – with some even saying they will lead to the “extinction” of the Japanese race.

According to the RT documentary “Substitutes,” industry insiders say that around 2,000 life-like sex dolls – with adjustable fingers, removable head and customizable genitals are sold annually in Japan. Assuming costs come down and the Japanese workforce continues to put in 14-hour days, there could be tens of thousands of sex dolls floating around the island nation within a decade. Maybe don’t look in random closets when visiting friends in Japan.

Will this post become as popular as “Watermelon Makes You Horny”?

My day will be limited by strong Summer afternoon thunder showers…..but at least the weather will cool down a bit after the rain….it may go from 100 to 95……

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and thank you for your visits this past week and I hope to see everyone in the coming week……

Peace Out my friends!

The “Slap And Tickle” Effect

AS I surf through the news daily  I am amazed at the amount of news we Americans do not get because of the preoccupation the media has with all these sex scandals…..hour after hour of blind speculation and accusation….And it get worse with each passing week…..Lauer is the newest dastard.

Did Clinton scandal start this downward spiral?  Did Bubba start this fixation on the sex aspects of power?

I mean there is a whole story being built around a 21st century slavery ring in North Africa….and yet I know too much about the sex preferences of some weird judge running for an office he is NOT qualified to hold.

Yes, these are serious charges against these many diverse men…..yes their disrespect for women would fill volumes….but I ask….who did not know this was happening in our society?

Is the media going to adequately explain such behavior?

Hell NO!

This is just too easy to report than actual news….but I read an op-ed from Europe about this newest phenom for the US media….

While the Yemenis wonder whether the Saudi Crown Prince will ever stop bombing them with American weapons, and the President threatens to take on North Korea, the US media mainly talks about the sexual harassment of women by powerful men.

It all started with testimonies that a judge running for the US Senate from the fiercely Republican state of Alabama. had tried to seduce teenagers in the past. His accusers were rapidly followed by a complaint against a famous Democratic comedian turned Senator, followed by similar revelations about a famous television personality, Charlie Rose. Like broken records, the testimonies of women who were molested years or even decades ago, alternate with opinions as to the offenders’ proper punishments, superseding everything else going on in a world that the United States claims to lead.

The only mitigating factor is that the back story is more complicated than in other cultures, touching on both religion and politics. In the nineteen fifties, in boys’ fathers’ spacious cars parked in secluded places, American teenage girls allowed themselves to be ‘petted’, and the onus was on them not to ‘go too far’. In the sixties, the women’s liberation movement and the hippies brought ‘free love’ to communes and suburbia. Although the women’s liberation primer, The Second Sex, published in 1953, was written by French philosopher Simone de Beauvoir, it produced a much more robust feminist movement in the US than in Europe.

https://www.globalresearch.ca/only-in-america-the-medias-coverage-of-sexual-harassment-of-women-by-powerful-men/5619501

Then I read a piece in a Libertarian leaning site, Unz Review….

The current sexual harassment obsession may eventually subside but until then, matters will probably get worse. And by “worse” we don’t mean just additional victims accused of long past increasingly petty offenses. Rather, social justice warriors will soon join the crusade and their involvement will be far more odious than digging up dirt about celebrities behaving badly. But, the good news is that this involvement may eventually help cool the insanity.

Everyone in the entertainment business (and politics) knows that most young women flirt to advance their professional careers. Conversely, most men, whether straight or gay, are often governed by their libidos and usually welcome opportunities to score. The problem arises if women are a bit too sexually appealing and men a bit too amorous when a quid pro quo opportunity arises. In other words, the seduction urge is hard-wired into countless human encounters so it just a matter of how it is directed.

http://www.unz.com/article/a-modest-proposal-to-end-the-sexual-harassment-mania/

I say again…..I am NOT saying that these stories of sexual predators are not important but they should NOT suck all the oxygen out of the news…..and a real conversation needs to be had….as it is the talks are black and white and the grey areas are just ignored.

Updated:  Add an article in The American Conservative……

Is it okay to proposition a woman for sex after drinks? To initiate a workplace romance? To behave like a Casanova and bed as many partners as possible under the catchall excuse that you’re just “playing the field”? Twenty years ago those questions would have elicited a resounding “Yes! What are you, some sort of neo-Puritan?” Today the answers aren’t so clear. I keep thinking we’ve reached the eye of the #MeToo storm, only for another powerful man to be felled by lurid accusations and another think piece to spot fresh perils of untrammeled male sexuality. The topography of our sexual landscape is changing, with little indication of what it will look like once the winds have died down.

Closing Thought–Nov17

The “Slap and Tickle” Saga Goes On!

I have not written much about the continuous sexual allegations that have been pouring out of every pore of American society…I have a problem with these accusations…..they are older than my car….

I am not defending any of these pervs on what they have done but could we please get something a little more current than 1979 or 2006.

I am an old fart and in the 70’s and 80’s I was the manager of a bar….I am not saying that I was fooling around with children of 14 but I also did not ask for their driver license either…..plus being single and normal I would hit on anything on a bar stool…..

Okay let’s talk about a young woman of 14….that is is the age of my granddaughter and if Mr. Perv Moore had hit on her I would taken this dick apart at the seams.

All this “slap and tickle” is getting a bit speculative and redundant….and it is sucking all the oxygen out of other news stories of merit.

 

Closing Thought–28Jul17

Like What You See?

Warning:  This post is a bit graphic as well as a bit disturbing and may offend someone’s sensibilities…..please read at your own peril……

There are times when I read something while doing research that makes me shake my head and wonder what the Hell is going on in this world.

I could write a diatribe about the latest health care debate but why?  There are enough experts here on WP that I do not need to put in my two cents…..but I will post on a medical thing…..

We humans spend a lot of time worrying about our appearance……but it is women that have the hardest time….are they too fat?…are their breast too big?  Too small?  Should they be blonde or brunette?

For us dudes our biggest concern is our ………penis.

You know when you were a teenage dude you were never happy with the size of your penis……we young guys spent a lot of time contemplating our “Johnson”…and we really never outgrow that fascination…..

It seems that women or should I say girls appear to be having a similar problem.

I bring this up because of something I read and something that I have written about in the past…..

My past post……

Source: “….Lips Are More Like A Rose Petal.” – In Saner Thought

The more recent article…….

Doctors in the U.K say that girls as young as 9 years old are asking for surgery to change the look of their genitals.

Dr. Naomi Crouch, who is a gynecologist for adolescents, told the BBC that more and more girls under the age of 18 were seeking the surgery.

“Girls come in with comments, ‘I just hate it. I just want it removed. I just want it treated,’” she explained. “For a girl to feel that way about any part of her body, let alone a part that is intimate, is really upsetting.”

One girl told the BBC that she felt that her vagina “wasn’t neat enough or tidy enough. And I think I wanted it to be smaller.”

“Sometimes people around me were watching porn and stuff and I just had this idea that it should be symmetrical, and like not sticking out,” she said.

The British National Health Service reportedly performed more than 150 labiaplasties on girls under the age of 15 in 2015 and 2016.

“I find it very hard to believe there are 156 girls under the age of 15 who had a medical abnormality with the labia that meant they needed to have surgery,” Crouch remarked. “I think that’s extraordinary.”

“As a pediatric gynecologist, I have never seen a girl under the age of 15 who’s needed an operation on her labia,” she added.

(rawstory.com)

It is hard to believe that a young girl would worry about breast size but what brought her to the point that leads to this turn?

Really?  You do not put enough pressure on yourself to fit in as it were…..you feel you need to add this to the mix?

It is sad that we do this to ourselves……

What more can we say?  Time to shut the day down and get some rest….please be well, be safe….chuq

Thoughts From The “Food Nazi”

The weekend and as usual it is a chore to find something to blog about that does not include the politics of the day…..but I try….

From time to time I will post something that deals with food or cafe life….since I shut down my food blog, The Food Nazi, I have done a little food posts here and there…….Subjects like food trends, wine, etc……

Why the “Food Nazi”….that is easy…..I am pretty set in my ways…….I believe that food should be prepared the way it was suppose to be prepared……I guess a traditionalist would be a good description.  Fusion food is out for me!  The once noble profession of chef has now become nothing more than a cheap game show….in an age when insults are more important than facts I am glad I am no longer cooking for the public.

Sorry, I digress.

Many years ago when I returned from my overseas posting I opened a small cafe…..seated about 20 people, limited menu and a great place to have your coffee and schmooze with others.  It was called “Le Petit Cafe”……

So this weekend I will post on eating, food and other stuff……but the “other stuff” did not include placenta……yes I wrote “Placenta”…….

First, there seems to be a movement to eat the placenta after giving birth…..but is this a good idea?

You are what you eat……..

Kim Kardashian West has done it. So has January Jones. Now the CDC is warning new moms not to eat their own placentas. The Washington Post reports the unusual advisory came after an investigation into a mysterious illness that struck an Oregon newborn. Three days after a healthy birth, the baby was in respiratory distress, and tests revealed a deadly bacterial infection known as GBS. After a course of antibiotics, the baby recovered but fell ill again with the same thing. Tests revealed the culprit was pills made from the mother’s own placenta that she had been ingesting for weeks. Breast feeding transferred the infection to the baby. Once the mom stopped taking the pills, the infant recovered. While GBS isn’t usually dangerous for adults, it is perilous to a newborn’s immune system, reports ArtsTechnica.
Some new moms believe popping placenta pills eases postpartum blues, boosts energy levels, and stimulates breast milk production. Tens of thousands of new moms do it, per the AP. The CDC hasn’t take a stand on placenta pills, but there is no evidence to show that “placentophagy” has any benefits. The report states the unidentified company that dehydrated the Oregon mom’s placenta failed to heat the organ that attaches to the uterine wall sufficiently to kill germs. There are no standards for heating placentas, the CDC notes, adding that doctors should “educate mothers interested in placenta encapsulation about the potential risks.” Forbes notes that placenta recipes are rampant on the internet, with suggestions to add them to lasagna, chili, tacos, and smoothies. (Aussie company turns placentas and embryos into jewelry.)
Okay a warning here…the remainder of this post is of a sexual content and may not be suitable for all readers.
You know that people in business are always looking for that one idea that will set them apart……especially in the food market…..there were topless coffee houses, bikini clad waitresses, so on….but I believe these guys in Switzerland have hit on something special……
A “Fellatio Cafe”……

You’ve heard of happy endings at seedy underground massage parlors—now get ready for blowjobs at coffee shops. Yeah, it’s a real thing.

At the end of this year, a new coffee shop, Fellatio Café, will open up in Geneva, Switzerland, where you can get a hot cup of joe, with a side of blowjob. Seriously.

I wish I had something clever to add…..but I think I will leave it there for the day……..That is it for today….let the comments fly….

Next week I am going through a panel of tests so I do not know just how often I will be on-line…….please bear with me….hopefully this will not be a drawn out affair….chuq

Is Artificial As Good As Real?

Another Sunday and I do not have anything important to do…..my better half and I will spend it doing what adults do (take that anyway you choose)…..

Speaking of things adult do……..

Yesterday I watched a movie entitled “Ex Machina”…basically a thriller with a sexual cyborg…..after watching the movie I got to thinking…what are the chances of a sex doll that is that life-like?  I am not talking about a blow-up model but rather one that is totally life-like…..can do all the things required of it…….

And don’t you know I had my questions answered for me……

In the brightly lit robotics workshop at Abyss Creations’ factory in San Marcos, California, a life-size humanoid was dangling from a stand, hooked between her shoulder blades. Her name was Harmony. She wore a white leotard, her chest was thrust forward and her French-manicured fingers were splayed across the tops of her slim thighs.

Harmony is a prototype, a robotic version of the company’s hyper-realistic silicone sex toy, the RealDoll. The Realbotix room where she was assembled was lined with varnished pine surfaces covered with wires and circuit boards, and a 3D printer whirred in the corner, spitting out tiny, intricate parts that will be inserted beneath her PVC skull. Her hazel eyes darted between me and her creator, Matt McMullen, as he described her accomplishments.

“Her” name is Harmony and there is more about this “model”……

Her head, eyelids and lip movements are fairly crude and her conversation is even more limited.

But she is part of a new robotics revolution that is seeing artificial intelligence incorporated into an extremely human-like body.

Some think that it will revolutionise the way humans interact with robots while others believe that it represents the very worst in robotic advancement.

Is this the future of a sexual encounter?  Cut out the middle man altogether?

I am an old fart so this will be wasted on me….but you younger readers…….. the future is now.

Surely my readers have some thoughts on this turn of events……

A tune to go with the mood……

Have some fun and relaxation a new week starts tomorrow….I appreciate all the visits and new followers this past week…..you guys make this blog worthwhile….thank you  chuq

Closing Thought #2–19Apr17

EXTRA!  EXTRA!  Read All About It!

My second closing thought for the day….but this was just good to wait.

It is official the Mouth Of FOX News is out on his ass!

Embattled Fox News host Bill O’Reilly will not return to the air.

In a statement released Wednesday, parent company 21st Century Fox announced that O’Reilly had lost his job at Fox News Channel. “After a thorough and careful review of the allegations, the Company and Bill O’Reilly have agreed that Bill O’Reilly will not be returning to the Fox News Channel,” a statement said.

The decision comes after advertisers fled the O’Reilly Factor over revelations that Fox News paid out nearly $13 million in settlements to five women who claimed the host sexually harassed them. Last week, O’Reilly announced he would be taking a vacation that was planned “last fall,” prompting sources at Fox News to reveal the Murdoch family is considering whether to keep O’Reilly on the air. He was scheduled to return next Monday.

What will all those deep thinkers of the “Ignorati” do without their source of crappy news?

Not to fret you lovers of lies….there is always Breibart or Alex Jones or WND to turn to for your bullshit news.

You know all this could have been avoided he he had enough brains to pay a hooker instead of flexing his Johnson at co-workers….just saying.

Peace out…my friends….chuq

Sex By Another Name

Sunday begins and I had a difficult time trying to decide what to write about…this past week has been full of stupidity……then I decided on sex….

In the early days of IST before there were many followers I tried to increase my readership by writing about sex, everybody wants to read about sex, sadly two of my most popular posts in the last 10 years have been “Watermelon Makes You Horny” and “Do You Break Out After Sex”…I just wish that some of my more academic posts drew that kind of readership….but I digress….

SciFi has given us lots to think about when it comes to sexy robots…..Has our society come to the point where there will be sex robots?

There’s not a day that passes that we don’t have a new reason to suspect humanity is dying off. Scientists have warned of the ‘sixth extinction‘ for decades, but now there is at least one man who believes an ostensibly beneficial innovation — sex robots — could lead to the human race getting screwed.

This is not a Terminator scenario. If humans begin spending the majority of their intimate hours with sex androids, they will reduce both the energy and biological resources needed to perpetuate the human race. At the Second International Congress on Love and Sex with Robots, Swiss researcher Oliver Bendel issued the following, fairly simple, warning:

Source: Sex Robots are Becoming a Thing — and They Could Kill Off the Human Race

Really?  A Plastic Fantastic Lover?

One more shot at the world of sex…..

Back in yesteryear there were “snake oil” salesmen that sold all kinds of concoctions to relieve a wide array of ailments….and then there was the legend that “Listerine” would cure gonorrhea…..but do not discount the ancient myths…..

Listerine claimed way back in 1879 that its mouthwash could “cure” gonorrhea, Live Science reports. Now a new study published Tuesday in Sexually Transmitted Infections gives credence to that claim. Or at least that’s what the overly excitable media would have you believe. “A good gargle before engaging in oral sex may reduce the risk of transmitting the infection to the recipient,” states Forbes (which notes more research is needed to get rid of that pesky “may”). Researchers had 58 men with gonorrhea in their throats gargle with Listerine or saltwater. The men who gargled with mouthwash for a minute were 80% less likely to test positive for gonorrhea-causing bacteria afterward.

But don’t get too excited, Jezebel warns. Listerine was shown to be far more effective at getting rid of the bacteria around the tonsils than further back in the throat. And because the men were tested after only five minutes, it’s unclear how long the effect lasts. It’s also unclear if getting rid of gonorrhea-causing bacteria in the throat would do anything to prevent infections elsewhere on the body. While the study concludes that daily gargling may be an important preventative step, lead author Eric Chow says they “do not recommend it at any site and certainly not anywhere other than the throat” as a treatment for gonorrhea. That leaves Jezebel with its own conclusion: “Use condoms.” (Terrifying further reading: Gonorrhea may beat all known drugs by 2021.)

There is the post for a Sunday afternoon…..plus I got to drop a little history on you (smiles)….

Enjoy the rest of your weekend….see you guys tomorrow.

The 1st Pubic War

Not to be confused with the Punic Wars that Carthage fought with Rome…..(BAM!  Dropped some history on ya)…..

It is the weekend and as usual I try to find subjects that distract my readers from the terrible condition the world is becoming.  I think I found something unusual and strange enough to distract you…..

WE have had our War on Women and it is the time of year that we will be bombarded with the usual bullshit about this War on Christmas….but I found an even better war……

Pubes!

Huh?

We have waxing(ouch!)……and special lotions to make bare…..and utensils that trim and beautify….but for what?  Is it vanity?  Maybe a “fad” or even for good reason(?).

People who groom their pubic hair regularly are more likely to have a sexually transmitted infection, say researchers in a new study. To be clear, the researchers aren’t saying that the grooming itself helps lead to the STI, reports Live Science. While it’s possible that’s the case—perhaps because shaving causes small tears that lead to vulnerability—it’s also possible that people who groom down there are more sexually active to begin with and thus more likely to pick up an infection. In scientist-speak, this is all about correlation, not causation. Still, the study in Sexually Transmitted Infections found that regular groomers were about four times more likely to report having had an STI. For the study, researchers surveyed 7,580 people ages 18 to 65 and learned that 84% of women and 66% of men had shaved or otherwise trimmed their nether regions.

Of those, 17% fell into the “extreme” category of removing all hair once a month and 22% were in the “high frequency” category of trimming daily or weekly. The greater the frequency, the greater the link to STIs. The upside for groomers: They had fewer reports of lice. For the record, electric razors were the most common method for women and manual razors for men, notes the BBC. Also of note: Of the 7,580 adults, 110 said they were virgins. Given the lack of a definitive link, how might the findings be put to use? “If a clinician were to see evidence of grooming upon physical examination, perhaps that physician should inquire about safer sex practices or a sexual history,” says lead author Charles Osterberg of the University of Texas Dell Medical School, per Time.

In other news…. for those who live the “sex, drugs and rock and roll” lifestyle…..gonorrhea is on track to defeat all known drugs in another five years…

Have a lovely days and for god sake…..be careful!

This is it for the day…I have a tangerine crop to get off the trees…..please go out and enjoy your day and your family…..I will return tomorrow.
