Speaking of the notion of femininity...

Heather Cassils Gets Ripped for LACE Performance Art Show

I anticipate some men (especially men) wincing and thinking, "She is not attractive" but remember that she is not there to attract YOU. Read more... )

York was luurvely. Despite all the screaming half term kiddos with painted faces (Viking festival was on that weekend). [ profile] captain_g and I were the youngest guests at the York Hilton. The clientele consisted almost entirely of middle aged couples or families with multiple children.

Best hidden treasure was a little caf off a bridge overhanging the river Ouze, we sat there for a few hours getting caffeinated and looking at the beautiful reflections from the water. And obviously a visit was paid to Betty's Tearooms, too. Love that crooked doorway, it makes the building look like it's about to collapse like a deck of cards!

On Saturday morning That Freak made me do strength circuits in the hotel room. We ended up doing chin-ups on the wardrobe (which was bolted to the wall, presumably for that reason!!), had to remove all the coat hangers first so they didn't get in the way. I entertained the idea of leaving them lying around and puzzling the hotel staff... I've worked as a hotel maid a long time ago and I remember just how DULL that job is - anything out of the ordinary can make your day. Although nothing would beat the state we left the hotel room at Inya Lake in Yangon click here for fluffy bunnies. )

This is a fascinating read. One day when I have more time I may get round to submitting my own...

The most touching story published in the blog is the one written by a severely disabled man who lost his virginity to a prostitute.

"The following morning I sent Ruby an email to thank her for her affection, and over the coming days, Ruby and I exchanged a few more messages. It was very uplifting for me to read what she had to say, in particular that she had enjoyed my sexual curiosity and how I had wanted to touch her and taste her. She also admitted to me that she occasionally had doubts about her decision to be a sex worker, but that after meeting me those doubts had gone and she felt this was a gift I had given her. That was a lovely and unexpected thing to read, because at best I hoped that her professionalism would help her to tolerate being with me physically, and I seemed to have made a better impression on her than I imagined I was capable of."

I just find it mildly amusing that I post a picture of a semi-naked butch dyke and suddenly I'm inundated with comments, whereas most of my other blurbs pass quietly unnoticed... That's proof if one ever needed it.

Should I follow this up by similarly styled pictures of myself? Maybe I should accompany it with a spectacularly boring post about the particular type of door seal that complies with acoustic requirements and adequately addresses the Disability Discrimination Act 2005. Or maybe something about collateral warranties? See what kind of response I get. Haha

There is no excellent beauty, that hath not some strangeness in the proportion. - Francis Bacon, Essayes: Religious Meditations. Places of Perswasion and Disswasion. Seene and Allowed

Here's the strangeness that appeals to me. )

Stan: Chef, how do you make a woman like you more than any other guy?
Chef: Oh, that's easy! You just gotta find the clitoris!
Stan: Huh?
Chef: Whoops!
Stan: What does that mean? Find the clitoris?
Chef: Uh....uh...forget I said anything!

The location of the clitoris is hardly a secret these days. However, women are still uncharted countries full of crazy mysteries. Or, to be more precise, one part of their body is...

"Andrea Burri, who led the research, said she was anxious to remove feelings of “inadequacy or underachievement” that might affect women who feared they lacked a G-spot."

I hope these words were taken out of context because otherwise that would be a bit of a shaky premise for an unbiased study. So what of the women who have experienced it - is it all in the mind, then? Because faking a G-spot orgasm would be pretty fucking difficult. And to what aim? Because I'm told I'm supposed to have it, alongside a bank account and a six-weekly haircut?

One of these days I'll verbalise my rant against the mainstream view of female sexuality and the misplaced expectations. Currently I don't have the time so it'll have to wait, but trust me I have plenty to say...

Anyway, fear not, because the sexually liberated, non-frigid French strike back, restoring the "inadequacy" of British women right back where it belongs! Hoorah!

Don't you just love the British media. Clever slogans, an unusual take on political correctness AND a British vs French battle all thrown in for the same price...
