It’s time for mid-week link surfing.
Denouncing the study carried out last year by British researchers as fundamentally flawed, the French scientists insisted the fabled erogenous zone did exist in many women – around 60% according to Sylvain Mimoun, the organiser of the conference.
But, they said, it had fallen victim to an Anglo-Saxon tendency to reduce the mysteries of sexuality to absolutes. This attempt to set clear parameters on something variable and ambiguous, they said, was characteristic of British scientific attitudes to sex.
“The King’s College study … shows a lack of respect for what women say,” said Pierre Foldès, a leading French surgeon. “The conclusions were completely erroneous because they were based solely on genetic observations and it is clear that in female sexuality there is a variability … It cannot be reduced to a ‘yes’ or ‘no’, or an ‘on’ or an ‘off’.”

- I can understand safe sex education but I don’t get this obsession with abstinence. The Washington Post has an article discussing an abstinence study and how programs encouraging abstinence can delay sexual activity. But in my mind, delaying doesn’t really minimize issues like STIs or pregnancy. The WP article also discusses recent policy changes, such as funds eliminated for abstinence education programs. Nothing small groups of researchers, with small sample populations, to put a dent in progress, sexual or otherwise.
Blind sexual items may be so yesteryear, written for gawkers (and often by Gawker), but they’re goddamn entertaining tidbits of momentary lapses of celebrity logic that make the rest of us feel thankful we don’t have stalkers, who think they’re journalists, shadow our every move and write about our every fart.
- Did you hear about the ultimate Valentine’s Day present? It actually talks. It’s another sex doll that talks. Read about it here, and tell me, doesn’t the sex doll in the image remind you of Ann Coulter?
