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?

Fit young men ogle fit young women

This really is a massive surprise, isn’t it?

The author of the “scouting report”, as it was known in the men’s team, often included sexually explicit descriptions of the women. He wrote of one woman that “she looks like the kind of girl who both likes to dominate, and likes to be dominated,” the Crimson reported.

The “report”, which appears to have been an annual tradition, was circulated over the group’s email list.

Athletics director Robert Scalise has sent an email to student athletes announcing that the university will forfeit its remaining games of the season.

The mens’ soccer team would “rate” the womens’ soccer team.

This is such a horror that the rest of the season is cancelled.

Umm, yeah. Because groups of young men just do rate groups of young women. It’s rather what has perpetuated the species over the generations.

No Debbie, not really

Yet a male contraceptive is simply more sensible, in biological terms, than a female one. In her book, Sweetening the Pill, and in numerous articles, Holly Grigg-Spall points out that men have no fertility cycle, while women are only fertile for six days every month. Women take a lot of responsibility for those six days, while the constant risk is not from their ova but from ever-ready sperm.

Contraception only really make sense from the female side. Yes, sure, we can talk about being all modern and sharing stuff in a relationship and everything. But the costs to a woman of not contraception are vastly greater than the costs to a man of not contraception. At the limits, the cost to a woman are one of the ten possibilities in a lifetime to havbe a hild. That’s larger than anything a man would carry from a torn condom or whatever.

Agreed, even though we’re all the people who insist that evolution really happened we’re not supposed to go around talking about modern behaviour as being driven by it in any manner. But it is still true. The costs of pregnancy fall overwhelmingly upon the woman. Yes, even as we’ve constructed legal rights that insist the man must chip in and so on. Given that’s where the costs are that’s the hoke point to be controlled.

That’s before we get to the issue of chastity outside that relationship with the bloke with the snip….

About a effective as condoms then?

And less effective than the pill?

A contraceptive injection for men has been shown to be almost 100 per cent effective, and may also increase libido.

The hormone-based jab is designed to lower sperm counts by acting on the brain’s pituitary gland.

Over a year-long trial, nearly 96 per cent of couples relying on the injection to prevent unplanned pregnancies found it to be effective. During this time, only four pregnancies occurred among the men’s partners.

Slightly scraping the barrel, no?

Donald Trump faced fresh allegations of making unwelcome sexual advances, with his 11th accuser being Jessica Drake, an adult film star and director.

She also claimed that she was offered $10,000 for Mr Trump to come to her room, which she declined. She was unable to recall whether it was Mr Trump or a staff member calling on his behalf who proposed the alleged payment to her.

Mr Trump’s campaign dismissed her allegations as “totally false and ridiculous”, adding “Mr Trump does not know this person, does not remember this person and would have no interest in ever knowing her.”

Not that I wish to offer money to a porn star for a shag but it’s not exactly entirely out of possibility that she’d say yes, is it?

And this furore about “unwelcome sexual advances”…..it is still generally the bloke who goes ? and the woman who possibly responds ! isn’t it? Or not, as the case may be, in which case she’s just received and unwanted sexual advance, hasn’t she?

Well of course the Puritans liked sex!

They were undoubtedly odd but they were not mad:

The famously strait-laced 17th-century sectarians who helped settle America weren’t nearly as priggish as you might think.
A leading scholar claims that the Puritans were in fact sexy, and saw sex and love as important factors to help form a passionate relationship.
The claim is based on letters penned by Puritan forefathers including Colonial Gov John Winthrop, which are said to evoke more passion than prudishness.

They took a very dim view of sex outside marriage and a very hearty approach to it within.

One way to tell is to look at the size of their families……

On the gay pardon thing

What, exactly, is the offence that all are going to be pardoned of?

That gross indecency? Buggery?

The latter would be something of a problem perhaps. There was one year when England hanged more for buggery, or sodomy, than for murder so I’m told.
