Sex for Peace!

Make love, not war!

How often have you heard people mouth platitudes about world peace?

There's the beauty pageant contestant offering to use her celebrity status to secure world peace if she wins (although admittedly, Stephen Colbert has found out a link between beauty pageants and middle-east peace).

Seriously, though, do you really want world peace?
Did you say yes?

Well then, that's easy- just have more sex!
Scientific observation has revealed that social interactions among bonobos are far less hostile than among common chimps. This is not to say that bonobos never fight; they just do so a lot less. Unlike common chimps (and humans, of course), bonobos have never been observed deliberately killing members of their own species. Among bonobos observed both in the wild and in captivity, sex and mutual pleasure are keys to keeping the peace, reinforcing social relations based upon the give and take of sensual, erotic pleasure rather than on pain and force and fear.
Apparently, all that hot sex just cools ‘em out.
Apparently what we need for world peace is the same thing that we need for a little peace of mind- sexual healing (lyrics).

Listen up people. We all know how well make-up sex works after a fight, dont' we?

Well, just switch to having sex before a fight- and you might just decide not to fight after all!

Citibank's junk mail opt-out is like jumping through hoops

I have a Citibank NRI (non-resident Indian) account which I don' t use much. But I get a ton of email from them - all marketing messages. I tried "unsubscribing" (still trying to figure out how can you unsubscribe when you didn't subscribe).

The reply I got back from Citibank shows their callous attitude towards their customers and particularly regarding the issue of spam:

Sex, Rape, and God

There's an interesting article in Washington Post that discusses the nuances and history of Mormon polygamy. I found the comments below it sufficiently compelling to respond. I'm reproducing here what I said there:

All this talk about what the religion or the sect says is a red herring in my view. The only issue is what is legal, and what should be illegal.

The core problem with this incident and others before it isn't whether polygamy is or should be legal.

* The problem is adults having sex with children *
* The problem is _systemic_ RAPE of children. *

No society should condone in any form sex with children.

Polygamy, Polyandry, Polyamory, Bigamy and any kind of sexual union between *consenting adults* is not the issue, and shouldn't be illegal in the first place.

The problem is that laws exist on books in several US states that make these various kinds of sexual activity illegal - including fellatio and sodomy - even between consenting adults.
