Milo’s in a bit of trouble then

Reading around it appears that a bit got lost in translation. He using British (and possibly slightly gay) English and referring to boys with older men, meaning twinks of 16 to 18 with 30 and 40 year old boyfriends. Americans leaping in and insisting he means 13 year olds with adults.

Hmm. The problem with the case for the defence here is that Americans are odd about age gaps anyway. Not entirely but in general they think people should only date within their own age group, a couple of years different perhaps. A decade gap is looked upon as really rather odd, especially late 20s reaching down into late teens.

Don’t insist that’s it of course, just that’s my reading of it so far.

Hmmm

‘Get your t*** out, show us your m****’: Drunken yob hit with £8,400 bill for abusing stewardess

Most impolite to be sure but if those stories about those who work for the airlines are true that seems very expensive for a peek at something widely shared, no?

The perils of impotence

At one point he fretted to his analyst that he thought he might be impotent after a disappointing encounter the night before.

“You tell me that you had sex 29 nights in a row with different girls. On the 30th, you say you’re impotent,” his doctor replied drily. “You know, even God rested after six days.”

This is something that needs proving Owen, not assuming

Despite the transformation of attitudes because of the work of LGBT activists, LGBT people are still exposed to homophobia and transphobia from the earliest of ages. A society that still fails to accept LGBT people as genuine equals causes much higher levels of mental distress among LGBT people, along with its grimmer symptoms: alcohol and drug abuse, even suicide.

Which way does the causality run?

No, I don’t know either but that is what has to be shown, we cannot just assume it.

Entirely amazing this, just flabberghasting

A transgender model, who has spent almost $300,000 on 127 surgeries to become a ‘desirable’ woman, has told of her struggle to find love with a man who accepts her.
Kelly Star, from Perth, says she has been single for 12 years, despite receiving lots of male attention for her curvaceous figure and 32K breast implants.
The 46-year-old said since beginning her transition into a woman at the age of 16, she has struggled to find a compatible partner who will openly date a trans-woman.

Entirely impossible to understand, isn’t it?

Stereotypes do come from somewhere

Isn’t it the greatest finding of the social sciences that there’s a truth at the heart of stereotypes?

Sometimes even a declaration is ignored by an uncomfortable practitioner. Straightness is still automatically assumed, unless you’re lucky enough to have a doctor who doesn’t see heterosexuality as the default for everyone they treat.

Somewhere between 98% and 96% of the people who walk through the door will be straight. The assumption thus seems fair enough.

Err, whut?

San Francisco Asks: Where Have All the Children Gone?

NYT headline. To which:

The San Francisco metropolitan area has a higher percentage of adults who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender than any other city in the country, a new survey found.

Gallup’s poll of the 50 largest metropolitan areas in the U.S. found that 6.2% of San Franciscans identify as LGBT, which is 2.6 percentage points higher than the national average.

And amusingly that’s not in fact the answer. The disparity between gays and no children is just too large for it to be more than a minor contributor. The actual answer is that people get out of Dodge to go have and raise their children. Rather like parts of London in fact….

So, it’s Vova who understands these things then

Speaking at a press conference with Molodovan president Igor Dodon in the Kremlin on Tuesday, Mr Putin said the dossier was “an obvious fake” and ridiculed the suggestion that the Russian secret services “chase after every American billionaire.”

He also suggested Mr Trump would not have fallen for a honey trap if one had been laid, asking: “He arrived here and immediately ran off to meet Moscow prostitutes?”

“This is an adult and, moreover, a man who for many years has organised beauty contests. He socialized with the most beautiful women in the world. I can hardly imagine he rushed to the hotel to meet our girls of lower social responsibility -even though they are the best in the world, of course.”

“We are witnessing an ongoing acute political struggle in the US, whose task is to undermine the legitimacy of the president-elect,” he said. “The people doing this are doing enormous damage to American national interests.”

And isn’t girls of lower social responsibility such a lovely way of phrasing it?

You can’t blackmail a known adulterer with tales of adultery

The most convincing proof to me that the Russians weren’t involved is that said Russians are not idiots:

Within seconds Trump was throwing punches, suggesting it would be a “tremendous blot” on the record of the intelligence agencies if they were responsible for leaking the now notorious kompromat dossier, which alleges that Russian intelligence has evidence of perverted sexual behaviour by Trump.

It’s been generally known for decades that Trump screws whatever he can. He’s been known to seat his wife (of the time) and current mistress at the same table at parties just for the joy of it. Kompromat of his having odd sexual tastes is not in fact kompromat therefore.

It doesn’t really matter what the odd sexual tastes are either. Golden showers or that he gave Michelle a blow job, doesn’t really matter. It’s just not compromising in the way that, say, an evangelist getting it on with a hooker is.

And people who do blackmail know this. Evidence that James Bond shags stunners does not provide a hold over James Bond now, does it?

Fascinating case

A minor from Hyderabad, who was forced to marry a 35-year-old man last year, was served a legal notice for not leading a “marital life” with him and discharging “the duties of a housewife.”

The girl — presently pursuing polytechnic diploma course at a private college — received the notice from lawyer D Narender Rao, representing her husband Palsam Srikanth Goud a few days ago. Having no resources to fight the legal battle, she wrote to State Child Rights Association on Wednesday seeking help.

“She passed Class 10 in March last year and going by her school-leaving certificate, she was born on March 3, 2000. It shows she is still a minor. So, the marriage itself is illegal and demanding conjugal rights from her is all the more illegal. We are planning to move the high court against Srikanth and also the lawyer, who issued notice without even bothering to know her age,” association leader P Achyuta Rao told HT.

OK, so it’s an illegal child marriage and so on. But the fascination bit:

However, in the notice dated December 24, 2016, the lawyer accused the girl of behaving in a highly objectionable manner with Srikanth and his family members. “You have developed the habit of disliking your husband and not giving due respect to him. You never bothered to live marital life with him and failed to perform duties of a house wife,” he said.

Indian law has a procedure by which a husband can demand pussy?

The truth about the British Midlands

Residents of Wolverhampton claim they have had close to 50 sexual partners in their lives making it the most promiscuous city in the UK, a survey found.
The average person in the West Midlands city, which lies 17 miles from Birmingham and has a population of just over 250,000, claims to have had a staggering 48 lovers.

Difficult to find a decent date up there, got to keep looking…..

Erm, no luvvie, you’ve got this the wrong way around

Once again gay people, single women, the non-monogamous, the kinky, and many other people whose sexuality does not conform to the heterosexual, child-producing marital bedroom, will be forced to articulate their right to sexual freedom. For many adults, merely having sex, and being sexual, will become a political act. Welcome to the year of assertive sexuality.

98% of the human race just doesn’t give a damn who you have sex with nor how. The other 2% are morons of course.

However, there is a more general complaint out here. Which is that you do indeed make your preferred method of rubbing uglies into a political act. And no, really, we just don’t care whether the preference is for playing the pink oboe or rug munching, upside down from a trapeze or while wearing a squirrel suit.

We really, really, don’t care. Good luck to you, have fun and all that, but could you stop with this insistence that your preference is a political act? It ain’t.

It’s a sexual preference of no greater import than my stirrings for redheads or her over there’s to be ravished by someone dressed as a liberal.

It’s all tremendous fun, it’s a basic driving urge of humans and it’s also intensely personal, not a societal and thus not a political matter.

By all means get on with your preferred method of getting flushed and sticky. But it’s got absolutely bugger all to do with the public square now, has it? It’s a bedroom matter, not something to be done in front of the horses for fear of frightening them.

I might have to help them with this

Interesting new research:

The morphology of human female breasts appears to be unique among primates due to their permanent fat deposits. It has been previously suggested that female breast morphology arose as a result of sexual selection. This is supported by evidence showing that women with larger breasts tend to have higher estrogen levels; breast size may therefore serve as an indicator of potential fertility. However, breasts become less firm with age and parity, and breast shape could thus also serve as a marker of residual fertility. Therefore, cross-culturally, males are hypothesized to prefer breast morphology that indicates both high potential and residual fertility. To test this, we performed a survey on men’s preferences for breast morphology in four different cultures (Brazil, Cameroon, the Czech Republic, Namibia). As stimuli, we used two sets of images varying in breast size (marker of potential fertility) and level of breast firmness (marker of residual fertility). Individual preferences for breast size were variable, but the majority of raters preferred medium sized, followed by large sized breasts. In contrast, we found systematic directional preferences for firm breasts across all four samples. This pattern supports the idea that breast morphology may serve as a residual fertility indicator, but offers more limited support for the potential fertility indicator hypothesis. Future studies should focus on a potential interaction between the two parameters, breast size and firmness, which, taken together, may help to explain the relatively large variation in women’s breast sizes.

This was done at Charles University in Prague.

Brother of a mate of mine is Rector of a Czech University. I think we should study this question more closely. Proper field research. Intensive, detailed, field research. Possibly using the local subject matter to hand. Can think of a few that would be suitable.

Perhaps into whether the male human hand is a suitable measurement device for checking breast firmness. Repeatedly. Over several cycles perhaps for one potential subject.

So, this solves a bit of Genesis then

It can be as long as a finger in a monkey. In the walrus, it can be two feet long. But the human male has lost it completely. And researchers are a little stumped.

Known as the baculum to scientists with an interest, the penis bone is a marvel of evolution.

Just a translation issue here. As we know, men and women have the same number of ribs. Thus the taking of Adam’s rib to make Eve isn’t quite right. It was, of course, the baculum.

Which explains why we spend so much effort chasing pussy of course. We just want to be reunited with our missing dick bone. Further, this also forbids any female complaints about floppiness at crucial moments. For the only reason that floppiness is possible is the reason you exist m’dear.

My story and I’m sticking with it.

Have these people ever met any humans?

Size matters when it comes to safe sex.
A southern Swedish health clinic is offering services to men to measure their penis in order to fit them with the correct condom size.
Specially designed tape will measure penises in diameter rather than in length and the clinic hopes the unique opportunity will help boost the number of young men to visit youth clinics.

Youth clinics here are of course for teenagers. And some bird who might offering to measure some male teen’s penis will get an enthusiastic agreement, perhaps too enthusiastic. Some doctor or nurse insisting that it be presented vibrant so that it can be measured is going to get a rather different sort of reaction.

Erm, I though we knew this?

While male orgasms have a link to fertility, until now, female orgasms were considered to occur simply for pleasure.
But new research suggests female orgasms could play a key role in fertility.
The study suggests reaching climax could increase a woman’s chance of conceiving by as much as 15 per cent.

I wouldn’t say that, being childless myself, I’ve ever proven this but it’s certainly one of those bits of “knowledge” that’s been floating around the brain for years. And when I read stories of those super sperm donors one of other of the women involved always seems to mention this as at least a folk belief.

This isn’t to say that humans operate like cats, where it’s the shagging itself which causes the ovulation, but the idea that sex with someone liked enough to be enjoyable increases fertility doesn’t seem outrageous, dos it? It would also neatly explain the lower pregnancy rate from rape which is so often mooted (no, I don’t know whether that is true and aren’t particularly interested in whether it is).

About this sextortion stuff then

The National Crime Agency (NCA) said it believed it was also significantly under-reported and actual numbers of victims were likely much higher.
The National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) said the rise in cases was “worrying”.
“Sextortion” is a form of blackmail where criminals use fake identities to befriend victims online before persuading them to perform sexual acts in front of their webcam.

The images are recorded by the criminals who then threaten to share them with the victims’ friends and family unless they give in to their demands for payment.

Err, wise advice therefore being don’t whack one off to a stranger on the internet.

Going to rather kill Chat Roulette’s business model but still…

Asexual may not actually mean asexual then

People who identify as asexual may not experience sexual attraction, but that doesn’t stop them from masturbating and even having sexual fantasies.
A new study has found that nearly half of asexual women and three quarters of asexual men reported having these experiences – and, they’re just as likely to fantasize about fetishes and BDSM as ‘sexual’ people.
The findings shed new light on this little-understood orientation and suggest that, while sexual fantasies are not ubiquitous, the ‘asexual’ label may capture a more diverse group than previously thought.

No doubt there are people who are truly asexual – humanity encompasses many rooms after all. But to put forward an idea – most of those identifying as asexual aren’t, they’re just the people who find real people a bit icky.

Owen, it’s because humans are racist – and most likely to be so over the subject of sex

Racism is a serious problem within the LGBT community and needs to be addressed. Despite the determination of many minority ethnic LGBT people to do just that, it is not happening. “How can I be a bigot when I am myself a member of an oppressed minority?” is a prevailing attitude among some white LGBT people. But another far more pernicious reason is that the LGBT world revolves around white gay men to the exclusion of others. The rainbow flag is whiter than it appears.

“I’m sexualised for my skin tone and never treated as a person,” Saif tells me. “The community is trained to accept a white, ‘masc’, muscled gay man and the rest of us are not really accepted or ‘one of their own’.” It’s not the individual he blames, but being conditioned by a community that venerates the “sexual image of a white gay man”. According to research by FS magazine, an astonishing 80% of black men, 79% of Asian men and 75% of south Asian men have experienced racism on the gay scene.

Who we get to rub uglies with is a matter of some choice and noting which choices people do make tells us something about, umm, the choices that people make. No, this isn’t to say that we should be pro- or anti- miscegenation nor in fact that we should do anything collectively at all. But we should actually note that people do what people do and one of the things they do do is distinguish between people on those grounds of race when choosing to rub uglies. Some in favour of particular types, some against of course.

But there’s absolutely no point whatsoever in decrying basic fundamental behaviour of this sort. It’s not just how this does work it’s how it should work too. We’re supposed to, when deciding upon whom to rub uglies with, discriminate on outward signs of genetic markers. Rather how evolution works really.

This manifests itself in numerous ways. Some are rejected because of their ethnicity; on the other hand, some are objectified because of it. On dating sites and apps, profiles abound that say “no Asians” or “no black people”, casually excluding entire ethnic groups. It’s like a “bastardised ‘No dogs, no blacks, no Irish’ signs”, as Anthony Lorenzo puts it.

“On apps like Grindr,” writes Matthew Rodriguez, “gay men brandish their racial dating preferences with all the same unapologetic bravado that straight men reserve for their favourite baseball team.”

And?
