They were forgetting rules 1, 3, 5 and 7.

Damn you shipload of fearless hard-drinking hookers! We could have had a beautiful Mecca, a whole continent of homo-gays.

I have a friend (whose mother still owns a whore house) who can trace the family madam heritage back that far. I expect that book to go for far more than £7000 if their family name is in it. Her great x 6 grandmother was a mistress that fell out of favor and was sent to Australia for being a whore.

If the book has the right signatures, it could be worth £50 million in blackmail potential alone.

Fixed.

So, they cured homosexuality in New South Wales eh?

So they organised for 226 women - mostly prostitutes - to be transported Down Under to stop sexual activity between the men male settlers and to populate the country.

Ladies, would you rather be a impoverished whore in Victorian London or the live-in girlfriend of a convict in a lawless penal colony, the absolute farthest point from Western civilization?

You hafta empty your balls into something, and they didn't have any of your fancy fleshlights or inflatable dolls back in those days. It was really a choice between sticking your goo bazooka into a man or a wallaby, and granted some of those wallabies were pretty damn sexy, but they didn't have the nice, glovelike feel of the insides of a man.

Sounds as if they were concerned that folks weren't obeying rules 1, 3, 5 & 7. And it makes ya wonder what kind of "abuse" they were referencing with rule #4.
 
2012-12-03 10:36:48 AM  
Something tells me that after a year at sea, numerous ports of call, and marrying the crew; that would have been a pretty sad lot

Full year to get there, what is that like 14,000 miles - so 38 miles per day - the ship was sailing at 1.5 knots??

Homosexuality is a Learned Behaviour. The instinct for sex involves thrusting and groping and kissing and so forth. If you get horny at the sight of a naked man, or if you get horny at the sight of a naked woman, it is only because you have been taught to make that association.

That's something I never understood. I've had some very long dry spells, but never once in my life did it led me to want to stick my dick in some guy's ass. I mean, is masturbation not a good substitude anymore ? Better my hand than my neighbor's butt.

Masturbation is better than sex, in my opinion.
Sex takes too long. Plus, it doesn't involve as much porn.

I'm sure that your statement is based on hard scientific research done in the dark recesses of your mind. So I guess there is no point in continuing on with this conversation.

Human sexuality is mostly a grey area, and while most people identify as either entirely straight or entirely gay people for the most part don't deal in absolutes, so people who are a little bit gay placed in situations without females are more likely to develop sexual/emotional relationships with males because of the environment.

so that's why New South Wales sheep are so attuned to the sound of dropping trousers. Makes sense now.

I keed, I keed

How long did the UK send convicts to Oz? Was it only the initial ships that were prisoners? Did they keep doing it for a while?

One famous woman convict was Mary Bryant, portrayed here by Romola Garai, left, in a TV drama. Nineteen-year-old Bryant became a cause celebre in London after escaping from a penal colony in Australia before being recaptured and brought back to Britain

I would totally colonize her with my penal.

/ Provided that she is first thoroughly bathed.

OK, so basically some women got caught doing some bad things and they were sent off to get raped by hundreds of dudes. I am sure these women were less than thrilled about leaving their children (Im sure they had children), lives and families to never see them again for the sole purpose of relieving sexual tension amongst a bunch of rugged men in a land with no existing laws.

That's a sad story with a sorry attempt to make it sound acceptable. Basically state sanctioned sex slaves. Seriously-- imagine the ship when it arrives at port-- the men on the shore waiting its arrival. Do you think they were there on their knees asking for date?

Well, I guess we should track down all the people involved and execute them. I'd be totally on board with that. It's terrible and we should make it so that nobody responsible is alive anymore.

If you've already established penal colonies to get rid of your undesirables, tossing in a few sex slaves really isn't going to cause further moral qualms, is it?
