Coming To A City Near You

Saturday afternoon and the weather is warm and humid…..I have been hanging with the newest member of the family and puppy named Mojave….MO for short.  Damn!  I wish I had half the energy as this little girl.

Training a new puppy is just frustrating at times and other times it is just fascinating…..and a lot of fun.

But I need to move on to today’s second post……keeping with my tradition of posting stories that are not in the headlines is difficult at times for the MSM drives the conversation and does not like stories that bring them no notoriety…..

So onward,,,,,,,,

The digital age is approaching the climax (in more ways than one)…..you see sex is everyone’s favorite past time and droids are making it interesting….and I have written about this on several occasions…..

All this is the introduction to the “dolls” because very soon they are coming to a city near you…….

“Sex Robot Battle” sounds like the name of a B-movie one might stumble on during late-night channel-surfing, but that’s actually how KTRK depicts a war brewing between the mayor of a Texas city and the owner of a “sexbot business” out of Canada. The owner of KinkySDollS, which already has a location in Toronto—where patrons can pay for a private room and sex doll for anywhere between 30 minutes and two hours—tells the station he’s bringing his sex shop to Houston, and KHOU reports that Mayor Sylvester Turner is definitely not in a welcoming mood. “It’s not the sort of business that we advertise for, or we seek to attract,” Turner says. “Or quite frankly, from my point of view, the sort of business that I want in the city of Houston.”

A petition that so far has more than 9,000 signatures lays out the underlying issues—namely, that bot brothels will “ultimately harm men, their understanding of healthy sexuality, and increase the demand for the prostitution and sexual exploitation of women and children.” It also notes health risks, as there’s “no proven safe way to handle the disinfection of the humanoids.” But there may not be much the city can do to stop KinkySDollS from setting down roots. “There’s a difference between human prostitution and artificial prostitution,” a KHOU analyst says. “And therefore, there’s no law, that I’m aware of, that prohibits this.” Lawyers who talked to KTRK agree, though Turner says he’ll at least try to update local ordinances and make sure the business isn’t located near schools, day cares, or “faith-based institutions.”

I guess anything one can find to relieve tension is a good thing because tension can lead to gun violence (sorry just had to make the connection between sex dolls and gun violence)……

And now for a small musical interlude…….

May your Saturday be as relaxing as you wanted….peace out my friends…..chuq

Saturday–08Sep18

I try to make IST something for everyone and a good source of FYI…

As the weekend begins news comes that my state has the second highest incidents of sexual transmitted diseases (STDs)……another list that my state should be embarrassed of ….if it is a “Good” list we are at the bottom, if it is a “Bad” list we are at the top and it has been that way for a very long time.

http://backgroundchecks.org/these-are-the-most-sexually-diseased-states-in-the-us.html

All that comes with more terrible news about STDs…..

A record has been set in the US, but not one to celebrate: Almost 2.3 million cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis were diagnosed last year—more than 200,000 over the record set in 2016, per the CDC in a report released Tuesday. One CDC director says there have been “steep and sustained increases” in sexually transmitted diseases over the past five years, a “very concerning” trend that hasn’t been seen in two decades. Experts suspect that with newer drugs lowering the risk of HIV infection and making the virus itself less lethal if it is contracted, condom usage has declined, leading to the rapid rise in STDs. But experts tell NBC News that other factors likely contributing include less funding for agencies focused on STD prevention, doctors failing to test patients for STDs, and a general lack of awareness about sexual health—including the need to get tested even if no symptoms are present.

These are the estimates of the number of people with new and existing cases of eight STDs in the United States. The estimates are based on 2008 data.

Another fact is the Deep Red South has 10 out of the top 15 states with the highest cases of STDs.

Sad that in the 21st century that this health issue should be in the news…..and as an aunty of mine use to always say…”keep in your pants and you will always smile”…..

As long as sex is the subject of this post…..there is another aspect of the exercise…..this study is one that I would never have considered…..some of this is not news that is uplifting….actually it is kinda sad.

Daniel Noah Halpern checks in on the state of the world’s sperm in a lengthy piece for GQ, and the upshot at its worst is that there is “the possibility that we will become extinct.” That line comes from Hagai Levine, who co-authored a 2017 Hebrew University/Mount Sinai meta-analysis of 185 studies that involved more than 40,000 men’s sperm and found a worsening picture, and sharply so: In 1973, sperm counts were about 99 million sperm per milliliter of semen; by 2011, that count was down to 47 million per milliliter, and it’s still dropping. “We are producing half the sperm our grandfathers did. We are half as fertile,” writes Halpern, and the numbers prod him to ask: “Would 40 more years—or fewer—bring us all the way to zero?”

Halpern explores a number of other questions, among them, why haven’t we noticed such a drastic change, and what’s the cause? In his view, the answer to the latter question is clear, and “the scientists I talked to were less cautious about embracing this explanation than I expected”: chemicals, which we’ve been ingesting since the industrial revolution but even more so since WWII. He offers a primer on endocrine disruptors like phthalates and BPA, which are found in more obvious places like water bottles, less obvious places like grocery store receipts, and far, far less obvious places like pasta and eggs. He also talks about the significance of a man’s anogenital distance (that’s the distance between the genitals and anus) and how it interrelates with those endocrine disruptors. What’s the solution? IVF, perhaps ultimately. Read his full piece for more.

The “Anogenital” distance?

chuq is out….I will relax today and tomorrow…..there is a “honey do” list waiting…..a really long list……have a good day.

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!

Closing Thought–11Jun18

Since the 60’s and the “Free Love” Movement sex has become a source of many things…..ad agencies use it to sell products, Hollywood uses it to get the attention of their products and then there are some people that blame sex or more specifically “porn” for all the ills of society.

One of the best (that term was used sarcastically) statement about “porn” came from a GOP Congresswoman (go figure)…..we have had a rash of school shootings well a rash of all kinds of shootings and people look for a logical reason for these horrendous acts……the Congresswoman has hit it out of the park (again….sarcasm)…….

Republicans have long insisted that porn is destroying America, and GOP lawmakers have been quietly waging war on it in state legislatures for years—even if some of them seem to enjoy the stuff themselves. Now, a Tennessee congresswoman is taking the unfounded claim that porn is evil to new heights—arguing it’s somehow a “root cause” of America’s school shooting epidemic.

Diane Black, a Republican representative running for governor of Tennessee, made the comment at a listening session with a roomful of ministers last week, the Huffington Post reports. Discussing what she called the “root causes” of school shootings, she brushed off the fact that America is home to more than five times as many guns as any other country, instead pinning the blame on violent movies, the “deterioration of the family,” and smut.

“It’s available on the shelf when you walk in the grocery store,” Black said. “Yeah, you have to reach up to get it, but there’s pornography there. All of this is available without parental guidance. And I think that is a big part of the root cause.”

Speaking of smut……the governor of Missouri got caught with his pants down……figurative and possibly literally……he took pics of a woman without her consent……

Just hours before he left office Friday, Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens signed scores of new laws, including a measure that makes it a crime to try to threaten a person using a private sexual image—the same allegation that led to his downfall, reports the AP. In the flurry of last-minute activity, the scandal-plagued governor approved 77 new laws, granted several pardons and commutations, and won at least a temporary reprieve in a court battle over campaign records. He posted a long Facebook message touting his accomplishments—without any mention of why he was quitting—and quietly left Capitol about an hour before his resignation took effect.

A short time later, fellow Republican Lt. Gov. Mike Parson was sworn in as Greitens’ successor and immediately pledged “to bring honor, integrity (and) transparency to the governor’s office.” The “revenge porn” law signed by Greitens creates a felony that will apply to cases when someone threatens the nonconsensual dissemination of a private sexual image by coercing another person to refrain from an action. The governor has been accused of taking a nonconsensual photo of a partially nude woman with whom he had an affair in 2015 and warning her he would distribute it if she ever spoke of their encounter. He has acknowledged having the affair but denied criminal wrongdoing and refused to directly answer questions about whether he took the photo.

If you thought they could get no worse than these two toads…….

Nathan Larson, a self-declared racist and ex-con who advocates for pedophilia and rape, is running for Congress in the 10th Congressional District of Virginia.

While speaking to HuffPost on Thursday, the 37-year-old independent candidate from Charlottesville told the publication he identifies as a “quasi-neoreactionary libertarian” who is open about his pedophilia so as to remain unconstrained by “political correctness.”

“A lot of people are tired of political correctness and being constrained by it,” Larson told the outlet. “People prefer when there’s an outsider who doesn’t have anything to lose and is willing to say what’s on a lot of people’s minds.”

Least we not forget the GOP governor of Alabama got caught having an affair on the state’s dime…..

And yet the GOP is suppose to be the moral high ground in politics…….now that is a big joke that only the GOP can believe….most are pervs of the first degree.

I use to give the “B3 Award” (Babbling Buffoons Of Babylon Award) in the earlier days of In Saner Thought….an award for those people that let their mouths overload their ass…..and there are many.

Sexual Revolution

I have been visiting rt.com for several months now….they have some interesting stuff once you get past the propaganda…..And I have another sexual post but with a bit of history for you to learn….

I am an old fart so I was there for the sexual revolution…..and boy was it something (he states with a wide smile)…..rt.com asks an interesting question…..”at what cost?”…….

This year marks half a century since the May 1968 events in Paris (and elsewhere) which launched a youth-driven liberal movement that changed the world.

Thus, now is a good time to reflect upon the similarities and differences between the sexual liberation and feminism of the 1960’s and the protest campaigns that flourish today, from LGBT+ to #MeToo.

In the aftermath of ‘68, the French “progressive” press published a whole series of petitions demanding the decriminalization of paedophilia, claiming that in this way the artificial and oppressive culturally-constricted frontier that separated children from adults could be abolished and the right to freely use one’s body be extended also to children. They claimed that only dark forces of “reaction” and “oppression” could oppose this measure and among the signatories were iconic cultural figures such as Sartre, de Beauvoir, Derrida, Barthes, Foucault, Aragon, Guattari, Deleuze and Lyotard.

What Happened To The Accusers?

For a couple of months the big story has been the sexual exploits of popular and famous people.  It even invaded the senatorial election in Alabama….one Roy Moore.

Mr Moore is a religious zealot that got thrown off the Alabama Supreme Court because he would not follow federal law.  It seems that a woman has come forward and told the world that he was a pervert…..

I am sure that most everyone knows the story…..The Right wing defended Moore…well he lost and most Right wing blogs puke up the same reports….now it is they are asking what happened to these accusers…..

There is an answer for the babbling buffoons…..

One of the women to have accused Roy Moore of sexual misconduct saw her home burn down this week in a fire authorities are investigating as arson, AL.com reports. “I am devastated, just devastated,” Tina Johnson says. “We have just the clothes on our backs.” The fire started at Johnson’s home in Gadsden, Alabama, on Wednesday morning while she and her husband were at work and their grandson was at school. Neighbors and utility workers called 911, but the fire department was unable to extinguish the flames before Johnson’s home and possessions were destroyed. Her family is currently living out of a motel.

The sheriff’s department says it has spoken to a “suspect of interest” and doesn’t “believe that the fire is in any way related to Roy Moore or allegations made against him.” Instead, Johnson says neighbors saw a man with a history of public intoxication walking around her house prior to and during the fire. “He’s been trouble in the neighborhood for a while,” one neighbor says. In November, Johnson joined a number of women in leveling sexual misconduct allegations against Moore, who was running for US Senate. She said he groped her and made inappropriate comments when she visited his office in 1991, the Washington Post reports. He was married at the time. “I was so humiliated and sickened,” NBC News quotes Johnson as saying of the incident. (Another Moore accuser sued the failed Senate candidate for defamation this week.)

Interesting right?

I post this for all my Right wing brethren that say that once the election was over so was the star quality of the story…..the accusers are still there it is just that they are NO longer headline material for the MSM….

Once Again–More Sex

Once again it is the weekend and I needed to find something to post that did not take us back to the previous week….and I found SEX……and no it will have nothing to do with the antics of the rich and powerful……

First, it is about something I have posted on in the past…..sex love dolls…..

People say there’s no such thing as loving an inanimate object,” says James, solemnly. “I don’t necessarily think that’s true.” James is a 58-year-old from Atlanta, Georgia, and the owner of four life-size dolls. Every morning he carefully gets them dressed and puts on their makeup. One day he might take them for a picnic; on another they’ll stay in and watch television. The latter involves a painstaking process where he must bend the dolls into a sitting position and adjust their eyeballs. But that’s OK, because there’s nothing James wouldn’t do for his synthetic companions, with whom he shares a bed and has sex up to four times a week.

James is among the protagonists of The Sex Robots Are Coming (30 November, 10pm, Channel 4), an investigation into the development of animatronic, AI-enabled silicone sexbots, and part of C4’s Rise of the Robots season. While James’s silicone sweethearts remain resolutely inert, change is afoot in the world of sex dolls, with a drive to make them ever more lifelike. First stop is Realbotix, the throbbing heart of the sex doll industry in San Marcos, California, where – on workstations spilling over with custom-made nipples and wobbling artificial labia – researchers are utilising new technology to persuade their dolls to smile, pout, flutter their eyelashes and tell jokes. Down in the dolls’ nether regions, heating and lubrication systems are in the early stages of development for a more “authentic” sexual experience, along with muscle spasms to simulate female orgasm. “Pubic hair is making a comeback,” offers company owner Matt, running his hand through some plastic pubes.

Digisexuality is the next thing…….there is a study….believe it or not…….

With the rise of technology, so too comes the rise of a new category of intimacy. Digisexuals, or people who primarily use technology for sexual satisfaction, could soon become more prolific in society, according to experts.

“It is safe to say the era of immersive virtual sex has arrived,” said Neil McArthur, the director of the Center for Professional and Applied Ethics at the University of Manitoba and the author of a new scientific study on digisexuality.

Second, 2020 will be an election year here in the US and as of right now there will be a porn star running for president…..

Cherie DeVille reasons that if a reality TV personality with zero previous political experience can be voted into office, then why not her? She feels just as qualified, if not more. The physical therapist has firm opinions on immigration, education, environmental reform, and how to handle the war on drugs.

She’s also a porn star.

The 39-year-old caused a bit of a stir when she, during a press conference, announced her bid to run for President of the United States in 2020. She was joined by her running mate Coolio, the rapper of “Gangsta’s Paradise” fame; Press Secretary Alix Lynx, herself a porn star as well; and DeVille’s bodyguard, the WWE wrestler Virgil, who will serve as head of security.

Well that ends my Sturday’s posts….do hope you were entertained…..

Time for me to adjourn to the drawing room for snifter of brandy and a few snacks….TTFN…..chuq
