The Perry Bible Fellowship – Boy Scouts

26 07 2012

Thanks to an Australian friend for finding this on The Perry Bible Fellowship.

Never let it be said that Scouting doesn’t move with the times and stay relevant to the interests of the youth…

Quieter Elephant:

Lies, damned lies, and statistics!
Despite the title seeming to claim men are NOT promiscuous by nature, the body text merely says that women are just as bad.
Main point of course being that if a flawed study seems to “prove” what we expect, it is less rigorously checked… for decades!!

A new study has shaken the foundations of sexual selection theory as it has been understood since 1948.

New research at UCLA examined the famous fruit fly study conducted by English geneticist Angus John Bateman.

The findings undermine the long-accepted theory that men are hard-wired to be unfaithful while women seek monogamy.

Monogamy issues: A new study finds huge flaws in the research that has informed the way we understand sex and promiscuity in males and femalesMonogamy issues: A new study finds huge flaws in the research that has informed the way we understand sex and promiscuity in males and females

Led by Patricia Adair Gowaty, a professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at UCLA, and thanks to the help of advanced DNA analysis, the report found that females may be just as promiscuous as males.


In fact, Dr Gowaty, told Science Daily, Bateman’s study should never even have been published.

Musing on the reasons…

6-legged doggy style

Summer’s a bit late in White Rock. It’s been damper than usual of late. Very damp on some days. Downright soggy on occasion. So anyway, many flowers have held off on their blooms until just now. The cherry blossoms were late too, now I think about it. Anyway, this afternoon I’ve been trying to finish off one of those documents that just seem to not want to be written. It’s dragging on a bit. And the sun’s been shining. What was I to do? Plainly I needed to sit on the patio and consider the various ways of making 42. (Life, the universe and everything). And then of course, since I was there, I might as well take some photos. And perhaps even play with my new-found macro options. Couldn’t let my new 50mm feel unloved on the DSLR though, so I took a couple of snaps with that too.

And then of course I need to justify the whole diversion by sharing the results with you, so I can avoid it being “wasted time” :)

Lies, damned lies, and statistics… #3 – 13%

God, I love this 3sex5 blog site I’ve recently discovered – kudos Christina, kudos!

More statistics: #3 – 13%.

This one shows that 87% of women withhold sex when they’re happy.

Cosmo, via 3sex5: #61 – What his type says about him.

Explains why I like to get to the bottom of things, I suppose.

I love statistics.

This one over on “365 secrets, stats, and sexy facts” shows that 86% of American women make love in places other than bed… obviously!

Any Plans Tonight? Sexual health posters hit Manchester streets | The Drum

13 01 2012

Now I’m all for having a good night out. Or a naughty one for that matter. But as my mum always used to say (before she gave up entirely on me)… “If you can’t be good, be careful!”

There’s a new series of sex health advertising being launched in Mancheser, UK, targeted at the young and sometimes TOO spontaneous youth of the city.

Check out the full story right here on The Drum: Any Plans Tonight? Sexual health posters hit Manchester streets | The Drum.

Any plans tonight? Make sure you're ready to rock

And here’s some trivia for the Canadian (and potentially US) readers…

Note how the cars in the photo are parked facing the camera… on the RIGHT hand side of the road? The UK drives on the left, but there it is quite OK to park on the wrong side of the street. I remember getting a right old rollocking when I first came to Canada and did the same thing. The back of the street sign on the top/right of the photo shows it’s not a one-way street, BTW, for those amongst you who were about to type “but what if…”

Also – can you see the woman adjusting her stockings in the office window? No, me neither…
