(isn't it a pity that people don't have to know what they're talking about to talk about it to other people who don't know?)Televangelist Claims It's The Wife's Job To Keep Men Faithfulwww.huffingtonpost.comPat Robertson has many opinions on subjects including homosexuality, politics and the coming of the Mark of the Beast, but it was the famous televangelist's opinion on marriage that took center stage during Wednesday's episode of his daily television program, "The 700 Club."
So from me to you, welcome to our world, where sex is beautiful, people are friendly, and life is made to be lived to the fullest. Hope more clergy follow your lead so that one day everyone understands more about the importance of sex -- even for priests.
Someone in Vatican City had better get to confession.
Torrent Freak has unearthed the download history from an IP address in the Pope's place of residence and some of the movies are of the porn persuasion.

Rev. Debra Haffner of the Religious Institute told The Huffington Post she's "not surprised" at the Vatican City findings...[and] pointed to the Religious Institute's survey which found that "one in five clergy reported intentionally visiting a sexually explicit website in the past six months."
The 2012 study also found that "an additional 16 percent replied that they preferred not to answer the question about their personal use of these sites."
If you were able to listen to it all, however, you'll recall I talked about how desperately repressedresearch on sex has been for the past 100+ years, trailing all the other human/health sciences by decades in terms of advances because of the cultural anxiety and fear of sex which continually freezes funding for worthwhile research.
Here's a piece discussing some new advances in condom technology -- one of only a tiny handful of areas where we could be doing so much better. This new "origami" condom looks amazing.
Our civilization has explored outer space. We have cars that drive themselves. We've created a world connected by computers. But despite the astonishing innovations of the last 100 years, the latex condom remains woefully old fashioned. It practically hasn't changed since its invention in 1918. And I think we can all agree that condoms are universally hated—a necessary evil of safe, protected sex.
SFist: How does it feel to be the representative cookie of the Castro?
Penis Macaroon: It feels great. I'm not the only penis you see walking around here, which is nice. I feel like everyone accepts me for who I am. No one is asking me to "put it back in my pants", for example. No one is covering their kids' eyes when they walk by. I feel totally supported by the community and that's really all I can ask for.
Why I Study Duck Genitalia, By Patricia Brennan
In the past few days, the Internet has been filled with commentary on whether the National Science Foundation should have paid for my study on duck genitalia, and 88.7 percent of respondents to a Fox news online poll agreed that studying duck genitalia is wasteful government spending. The commentary supporting and decrying the study continues to grow. As the lead investigator in this research, I would like to weigh in on the controversy and offer some insights into the process of research funding by the NSF....continue reading

I'll be in San Francisco from this coming Saturday until the following Sunday and have lots of amazing plans lined up. If you're in the Bay area, you can hear me talk about my life-work, volumes I and II of The Truth About Sex, at the Leather Discussion Group, on March 27, 7:30 to 9:30
What I don't know is if or whether I'll have much time for the blog. So if you don't hear from me before April, 1, enjoy this last show and I'll be back before you know it.
Beyoncé is a "slut." She "gyrated her pelvis," "humping the air for 13 minutes." She "dressed like a stripper" dancing in "erotica fashion." Her "breasts protruded out, her butt almost completely showed." She "showed her vaginal area to all the world." Some people had very different reactions to the Super Bowl than the rest of us.
Generally speaking, it makes me livid when politicians, censors, and policy makers opine ignorantly about the dangers of sex and meddle with us consenting grown-ups who don't need anyone to tell us what we should and should not do in bed. They have the power to curtail our personal freedoms and frequently use it without regard to reason or science. My contempt for them is boundless.
I don't feel the same about ordinary people, though. I feel sad for them. When you read the letters that ordinary adults write -- not just to the FCC but all over the Internet --angrily denouncing completely harmless, natural and sexy behaviors, and claiming how it is inappropriate for children you realize that they themselves are the children they're trying to protect. They are the ones who are shocked and traumatized because their mommies and daddies made them feel guilty and ashamed about their own genitals and completely freaked out by vaginas. Now they are passing that sick point of view along to their children, and, in their own mentally unbalanced ways, perpetuating misogyny and rape culture.
Particularly poignant to me: it's FOOTBALL! A brutal sport, where men are routinely injured in ghastly ways and spend all their time on the field engaged in a ritualized war. Oh yes, it would be so much more wholesomely American if they were carrying unconscious men out on a stretchers and not destroy it with a woman wiggling around in a bathing suit, right guys?
I pity them; I pity their children; it only makes me want to write more and work more towards the day when our culture agrees that sex is less obscene than violence.
But do it the natural way. In my new book (coming by June!), I have a section where I talk about using lots of clear water instead of artificial cleansers and potentially toxic chemicals to keep your genitals fresh and sparkly.
Though we all want to believe that over-the-counter products are safe for use, the facts show otherwise. Pulling things off the shelf based on what the box says is not enough. When it comes to personal health, you should google it and research products before you shop. This new study confirms my own concerns that lots of the drugstore products sold to women simply are not safe.
NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Two thirds of women in a new U.S. study reported regularly using cleansers, lubricants or petroleum jelly intravaginally - and some of the products were linked to a higher chance of common vaginal infections.
Those mundane yeast and bacterial infections, and the inserted products themselves, can damage vaginal tissue and raise a woman's susceptibility to sexually transmitted diseases, such as herpes, chlamydia and HIV, researchers said.
If you're new to googling info on drugs or treatments of any kind (from sex lubes to cosmetic surgeries), here are my tips
1. To get info on a product, type the product's name and the words "reviews complaints." For example, "Vagisil reviews complaints."
2. If you are looking for a product, type exactly what you want, as if you were talking to a sex-positive druggist, for example, "I need a good sex lube."
3. If you have a pre-existing condition or allergies, add your individual concern to any search you run. For example, "sex lube diabetes."

WASHINGTON (AP) — The largest genetic study of mental illnesses to date finds five major disorders may not look much alike but they share some gene-based risks. The surprising discovery comes in the quest to unravel what causes psychiatric disorders and how to better diagnose and treat them.
The disorders — autism, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder or ADHD, bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder and schizophrenia — are considered distinct problems. But findings published online Wednesday suggest they're related in some way.
"These disorders that we thought of as quite different may not have such sharp boundaries," said Dr. Jordan Smoller of Massachusetts General Hospital, one of the lead researchers for the international study appearing in The Lancet.
Gambill recently told The Daily Tar Heel and a variety of other outlets about her traumatic experience reporting her assault to the administration. From a December 5th, 2012 article:
"It's incredibly clear that those people had no idea what sexual assault is, what consent is," said Landen Gambill, a sophomore whose assault case was processed by interim procedures.
The issue here is CONSENT. We in the BDSM community know all about the importance of mutual consent and how consent alters BDSM from potential assault into potential bliss.
In The Truth About Sex --both volumes, in fact-- I discuss my theories about the central emotional role that consent plays not just in BDSM but in ALL TYPES OF SEX AND EROTICISM.
In a nutshell: consent always matters. Whether it's someone touching you, kissing you, fucking you or whipping you, unless there is informed mutual consent, any and all of it may feel traumatic if you didn't want it to happen. When violence, threats, coercion or manipulation enter into it, the growing sense of victimization can escalate to sheer terror.
I wish Gambill good luck in her battle against the ignorance displayed by those handling her case. She's fighting an entire system of bad assumptions about sex and my heart truly goes out to her. I think she's heroic.
Alligators use bizarre, permanently erect penises that pop out of their bodies and are sucked back in just as quickly.
Unlike many other reptiles and mammals, alligators sport permanently erect penises that hide inside their bodies, new research reveals.
The reptiles sport fully erect penises made of tough, fibrous tissue that shoot out of their bodies and get pulled back in just as quickly, according to the study, which is detailed in the March issue of the journal Anatomical Record.
"It is really interesting and really bizarre, very different from anything we've seen in vertebrates," said study author Diane Kelly, an anatomist at the University of Massachusetts.

I was doing a vanity search for something *completely* different when this popped up (with my name at the end). They didn't interview me, so they must have found that comment in Different Loving .
Really delighted to read this guy's story. What amazing bravery!
He’s a husband, dad, factory foreman, loves rugby and braais and wears a nappy under his jeans.
Jan-Hendrick Terblanche, aka Poopoo-nappy, sounds like a typical Boer.
But this 40-year-old is an infantilist – a grown-up who chooses to escape to a baby world where he feels emotionally safe.
“When I don’t [wear my nappy] I get aggressive. To calm down, I put on a nappy and suck a dummy until I fall asleep,” he told the Daily Voice in an exclusive interview.
Locally, adult baby syndrome is still under wraps, which is why Jan-Hendrick started his own website.

Well, yah. Ho hum. I'm counting on regular readers to be as jaded as me about stories of anti-abortionists having abortions and anti-gay'ist cruising men's rooms and gay conversionists being gay rapists.Could someone please put American society out of its misery and send these sociopaths to a maximum security facility somewhere so they can all just lie to each other and quit fucking up the sane-i-verse?
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Republican U.S. Rep. Scott DesJarlais of Tennessee testified during divorce proceedings that he and his former wife made a "mutual" decision for her to have two abortions, according to divorce transcripts released Thursday.
On Tuesday 20 November thousands of members of the Trans community and their supporters will gather together at locations around the globe for the Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDoR). They will do so to commemorate the hundreds of individuals murdered each year simply for being transgender.

When Different Loving came out in 1993, the New York Times adamantly refused to review the book or attend the press-laden book signing party that Random House held at an SM club because, well, as they snootily implied to our bodaciously brave publicist, Sharyn, they were the New York Times and BDSMers were perverts. End of story.
Yesterday my oldest scene friend emailed me the link to this candid confession by a spanking fetishist, A Spanking Fetish Is Not Revealed Easily, just published in the "modern love" section of the Times.
Wow. Kind of amazing we've come this far. And yet...Kind of frustrating we haven't gone further. I mean it's very sweet that a young woman who is fearful of rejection chronicles her anxiety and ultimate relief in coming out to her lover. I heart her.
Still, I hope one day the Times will publish articles by people who have overcome all their shame and anxiety and can speak powerfully and meaningfully to the experience of BDSM, and not just their fears about being sexually different. Then I'll feel like we're having the kind of public dialogues about kink we should be having.
STOP DRINKING THIS CRAP.
Thank you. I feel better now.
You know those little vials of who-knows-what that TV bills as a healthier alternative to energy drinks. Turns out they might make you die. Or to be more specific, the flavored energy shot "has been mentioned in some 90 filings with the F.D.A., including more than 30 that involved serious or life-threatening injuries like heart attacks, convulsions and, in one case, a spontaneous abortion," according to a New York Times investigation.
Do you remember the world before legalized abortion? Women dying because of botched abortions in sleazy clinics, because they tried to abort on their own, and because they couldn't legally terminate a fatal pregnancy? That's what the end of choice would mean to us: a lot of women dying. Just as this woman died in Ireland.
DUBLIN (AP) — The debate over legalizing abortion in Ireland flared Wednesday after the government confirmed that a woman in the midst of a miscarriage was refused an abortion and died in an Irish hospital after suffering from blood poisoning.
Prime Minister Enda Kenny said he was awaiting findings from three investigations into the death of Savita Halappanavar, a 31-year-old Indian woman who was 17 weeks pregnant. Her case highlighted the legal limbo in which pregnant women facing severe health problems can find themselves in predominantly Catholic Ireland.
The intravaginal massage can be very helpful to women in their first pregnancy. You really don't need anyone else to do it for you (unless you want him/her to do it). But if someone wants to charge you for it while pretending it's a wellness procedure, call the cops.
A Washington State chiropractor is accused of sexually violating three female patients.
Greg Summers, founder of Summers Chiropractic and Massage in Federal Way, Wash. had his medical license suspended this week after being charged with sexual contact with three female patients and with changing the medical records of a patient, according to MyNorthwest.com.
Summers allegedly told two of his patients that "intravaginal massage," would benefit them because of the "invasion of their personal body space" that occurred when the chiropractor inserted his fingers in their genitals.
Bitterly disgusting on every level. Converters are quacks whose ministries are based on greed and ideology. The law should go after these charlatans for advertising services that NO ONE can deliver. They are some of the most cruel and harmful people in the anti-sex communities.
An Isanti County pastor who participated in a ministry devoted to helping people put their homosexuality behind them has been charged with sexually assaulting two men he was counseling.
Lakeside Christian Church's senior pastor, the Rev. Ryan J. Muehlhauser, 55, of Cambridge, appeared in court Tuesday on eight felony counts of fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct and remains free pending another hearing next month.
Muehlhauser also was a counselor through Robbinsdale-based Outpost Ministries, whose website says it was founded more than 30 years ago to help men and women "break away from gay life" and declares that "all homosexual behavior is sin."
Today in adventures in television news: graphics gone wrong. An ABC affiliate in Denver, Colo., said it was a “mistake” to run an image of Paula Broadwell’s David Petraeus biography that listed the title as “All Up In My Snatch” during a story on the former CIA director’s extramarital affair.

Male bruchid beetles, also known as cowpea weevils, have spines on their penises that puncture the female reproductive tract during mating, causing significant internal damage to females.
According to an article in the journal Behavioral Ecology, the sex is so unpleasant that the females are known to kick their mates off them to make the deed as quick as possible.
If you haven't already heard of this viral news, you should. It's the true story of a guy who peed on a pregnancy stick and laughed when it showed he was pregnant -- until people on Reddit said it could mean he had cancer!!
Here is the follow up toon ....
CIA Director David Petraeus has resigned, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said in a written statement Friday. The former Army general, who rocketed to global prominence as the man in charge of the "surge" in Iraq, quit over an extramarital affair, MSNBC reported.
Nowadays, you can't swing an IUD around without it smacking a pro-life evangelical Christian right in the bloody fetus protest sign. But did you know that all of these eternal Biblical truths religious conservatives trot out in making their argument that life begins at conception are actually at odds with much more reasonable, pro choice stuff in the Bible? And did you know that until until about 30 years ago, many prominent American evangelicals believed that life didn't begin until birth?
