Sex ’emerged in ancient Scottish lake’

Artist’s impression: The researchers believe the fish had to be side-by-side to copulate

Scientists believe they have discovered the origin of copulation.

An international team of researchers says a fish called Microbrachius dicki is the first-known animal to stop reproducing by spawning and instead mate by having sex.

The primitive bony fish, which was about 8cm long, lived in ancient lakes about 385 million years ago in what is now Scotland.

Sex Strike

Leave a comment

Women in Togo are planning to use sex in politics.

They want the incumbent president out.

Togo women call sex strike against President Gnassingbe

Isabelle Ameganvi said holding the strike would ensure women’s voices would be heard

Women in Togo have been urged to abstain from sex for a week from Monday to push their demand for reform.

The ban has been called by opposition coalition Let’s Save Togo, made up of nine civil society groups and seven opposition parties and movements.

Opposition leader Isabelle Ameganvi said that sex could be a “weapon of the battle” to achieve political change.

The coalition wants President Faure Gnassingbe, whose family has held power for decades, to stand down.

“We have many means to oblige men to understand what women want in Togo,” Ms Ameganvi, leader of the women’s wing of the coalition, told the BBC.

She said she had been inspired by a similar strike by Liberian women in 2003, who used a sex strike to campaign for peace.

The Cod Piece is Next

2 Comments

The world of fashion oft repeats itself.

Rowan Atkinson as Blackadder

It appears as though ‘male body enhancers’ are on the comeback.

Heaven forbid.

Most of the English speaking world will be familiar with Blackadder (with the exception of the Americans because to understand Blackadder, you need a sense of humour) and his propensity for the cod piece; preferably one that puts the fear of God into the clergy and impresses Queen Elizabeth I.

GWB to impress America

Many fictional characters, and some non-fictional have resorted to the codpiece, Batman needed to impress Robin, King Henry VIIIth to impress his wives, various cinema aliens to threaten Earthlings, the ominous codpiece appeared in Clockwork Orange, Micahel Jackson to impress… well never mind that,  and George Bush to impress America.

The cod piece, a centre of male insecurity, and other body enhancing parts are returning; butt enhancers, testicle lifters, corsets and ‘mantyhose’ are all the rage on mailorder.

All is available for the discerning man who wishes to let the world know if he ‘dresses’ to the left or the right.

Check here for further details.

The world is so screwed up, because I fear it will all be to no avail. Reading last night it would appear that sex, love, pregnancy, etc are on the way out; superfluous.

So for the men it won’t be worth a damp cod piece whether you are hung or not; whether or not you have a squib or a banger.

I find the whole thing rather disturbing.

Mary is going to lose her place in Biblical history as virgin births become a daily event. Yes, virgin births, I kid you not.

The role of the male is diminishing, along with his sperm count because of tight jeans; unless you eat a lot of walnuts… apparently.

The technologies are available to remove reproduction from the sex equation.

It’s a tad more than disconcerting; bordering more on the disgusting.

Sex Sells

It doesn’t matter what. You use sex and it sells.

Look at this add, you’ve probably seen it before, but I bet it sells.

Sexy Advertising Collection

Whether it’s good or bad – sexuality is considered one of the most powerful tools of marketing and particularly advertising. A recent survey in the United Kingdom shows that about two thirds of women thought that advertisers had gone too far in using sex to sell product. Use of sexual imagery in advertising has been criticized on various grounds.

However in these days it is a quiet tough task to surprise people, but there is one thing which never tire people. It is sexuality….

Too Much Sex Makes Your Eyes Funny

This is just plain wrong

I can’t believe that anyone would want to use their cell phone during sex…

Reminds me of the old high school joke:

Psychologist: Do you ever talk to your wife during sex?

Patient: Only if she happens to ring me.

UPDATE

Call me, indeed

During a conversation this morning with my student on this unbelievable statistic. He pointed out that there is the possibility that the cell phone on vibrate mode could be considered a sex toy…

Now there’s a thought, maybe the 12% have discovered the same. Now the idea doesn’t seem so silly after all.

But then, girls discovered that Harry Potter’s Nimbus 2000 could offer a more than thrilling ride too.

Enough to make the mind of a 60 year old boggle. The ‘Playboy’ of my youth pales in comparison.

Sex was on Their Minds

“Mentally Enhanced”
by Chet Raymo
“Here she is, folks, from a report in the May 14, 2009 issue of Nature, the oldest known piece of representational art, a 35,000-year-old female figurine carved from mammoth ivory, from the Hohle Fels cave in southern Germany. Huge breasts. Explicit vulva. Tiny head. Are we surprised? The first images our male ancestors looked at were – porn.
But wait. Why do we automatically assume that the artist was male? Maybe while the guys were out hunting woolly mammoths, the gals were home carving figurines, magical talismans, meant to enhance their own fertility. Or perhaps the so-called Venuses (there are similar figurines) were religious icons, images of the Mother Goddess. Perhaps they stood in a shrine of sorts, a niche in the cave lit by votive lamps, were mostly women came to pray, the men milling about at the door of the cave waiting for the service to end.

In fact, archeologists don’t know who carved these figurines or why. All we can guess with reasonable probability is that sex was on someone’s mind, which comes as no surprise. Thirty-five thousand years ago is about the time that our direct Cro-Magnon ancestors were displacing Neanderthals in Europe. They had something going for them – more agile minds? language? imagination? Maybe the source of their success was not reproductive efficiency, as such, but eroticism. That is to say, maybe the conceptualization of sex was a driving engine of cerebral facility and language. The Playboy bunny. The Harlequin romance. Foreplay. Dirty dancing. Maybe sexual fantasy prepared the way for art and religion and technological innovation. Maybe the brain evolved as a sexual organ, and then found other things to do.”
