A good stone is like a drawn-out, low-intensity orgasm.  You end up smelling like a burnt rope, but at least you don't get a wet spot on your bed.

susiespeculum: Warlordtrooper: "over half the men and a fifth of the women reported thinking about sex at least once a day"

50% of men apparently lie

4/5 of women lie as well


And 3/5ths of slaves.

In the 1960s, researchers exposed young men to sexually arousing images along with knee-high boots. After the exposure, these men found boots sexually arousing.

And here I was thinking those boots were made for walking.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Quantum Apostrophe: You guys all know about that tongue biter thing that eats a fish's tongue and then takes its place? My only chance to get sex is if I were a penis biter and I crawled up Russell Brand's pants. Sure, I'd have to eat his penis first but once I'm attached the fun starts.

Are you that fat and greasy??


Worse. I have no social "game". I just blurt out what's on the surface of my cerebral cortex. I've learned to shut up instead.

I'm not reading multiple pages of someone's lame introductory blathering to then watch them dance around vaguely described facts and details which are probably things I already know.

Wait, was tolerating all the blathering supposed to be part of the test?

Lets talk frankly about internal cleanliness: TomD9938: FTA :Lest you think this propensity is a peculiarly human obsession, it turns out that male rhesus monkeys also watch pornography

[i1.ytimg.com image 480x360]

"The drug... It's made from monkey cum. They keep these monkeys locked in a room all day, you know. And then they make them jack-off. And then they take the cum and they boil it or something. And that's what the drug is made of."

But it makes you feel like it's 72 degrees in your head... all the time.

Once you've committed to eating someone's penis and living in their underwear, I think the occasional chocolate surprise is not a big deal.

Bennie Crabtree: This article is written by a startlingly illiterate scientist who obviously has never looked at pictures of death or religious art, and is therefore completely ignorant of what sex means to people. In other words, the comment about death and ecstasy betrays that he literally does not know what sex actually is. He seems to only know about penis-vagina-neurochemistry, which is definitely not, and historically has not been been, equated with sex.

Although he should get some credit for noticing that sex does not happen in laboratories and therefore anything that happens in brains during sex is connected to lots of cool shiat, like paintings, sculpture, music, poetry, novels, essay-writing processes, the inflection of words,  the contemporary cultural anxieties about plague and famine, to name just a few things that affect the mind and body, the position of limbs, the power dynamics, during sex.

This article would have been relevant to discussions of sex if it did not take such an ignorantly snarky tone about the actual context for actual sex. Instead it was like trying to define what a jack-o-lantern is by talking about the seeds that get scooped out of it, and only the seeds.


The entire article is about the neurophysiology of attraction, desire, sex, and post-coitus, with particular emphasis on post-coitus, since that's the biggest unknown today. Everything else was little asides to spice up an otherwise dry technical article, not a treatise on the wider cultural significance of sex, so I'm not at all sure what you're trying to criticize. The death mention was two lines - just an excuse to bring up the French euphemism for orgasm for no particular reason.

That'd be useful.

Why ignore though?  There are a load of colors available for coding fellow Farkers.

Personally, I use Yellow #1 (I call it 'suspended in urine') for people I might otherwise ignore.

It's a reminder that what I'm about to read shouldnt be allowed to ruin my day/mood.

3000 words.  three thousand words.  three hundred, multiplied by ten.

That article would take longer to read than a week of foreplay.

I have at least 40 Farkers in bright yellow, partly for amusement and partly for the reason you stated above, and they range across a number of issues, from music to politics to movies to basic generalities. But bottom line, 'cos they're an asshole, NOT because they disagree with me.

Cheers. You're now a bright green.

FTFA: Neuroscientists can conduct studies of how dopamine regulates the anticipation of sex in rats with a detail not possible in humans. By inserting very small catheters, they measure the chemical environment in areas important for rewards. When a male rat is separated from a receptive female by a barrier, his nucleus accumbens is flooded by dopamine. If the male rat is then allowed to copulate with the female rat, dopamine levels plummet. However, if the rat then  sees a new female,  his arousal and the dopamine levels rise again.

In short. Even rats want...

Since this article did nothing to enlighten Farkdom, I will and with humor.

A man comes home from work and tells his wife "There was a terrible accident work today. I cut my finger off."

The wife in shock says "The whole finger?" To which he replies, no thank goodness, the one next to it."
