Monday Is Global Orgasm Day!

Homework, Lessons 4 Comments

Monday, December 21, 2009, 9:47AM PST. Prepare to cum.

I know you don’t need an excuse, but let me tell you about this anyway because it’s, like, whoa.

The Global Consciousness Project is an international group of scientists, engineers and thinkers across all disciplines that keeps a network of things called Random Event Generators (called EGGs), magical machines that produce streams of random numbers, which have been shown become less and less random during global, attention-focusing events.

Could it be? Could human attention have an effect on energy and matter?

Possibly. What the Global Consciousness Project wants to do is examine the subtle correlations that reflect the presence and activity of consciousness in the world.

“We have learned that when millions of us share intentions and emotions, the GCP/EGG network shows correlations,” their site reads. “We can interpret this as evidence for participation in a growing global consciousness. It suggests we have the capability and responsibility for conscious evolution.”

Imagine what would happen if a significant portion of the population focused his or her energy on orgasm?

It’s a cool experiment. Of course, then the Globalgasm page gets all The Secret New Age-y, talking about how cumming all together will be like giving the world an epic hug, but, hey, whatevs–maybe Causecast will pick it up.

Information from Globalgasm.

    I’m not entirely sure what they’re seeking to prove—this isn’t exactly a rigorous experiment (at least, not *scientifically* rigorous…)—but I suppose it’s a particularly accessible kind of communion (cummunion?) in any case. Even if there isn’t a global energy shift, we’re at least joining with other people (physically, emotionally, symbolically) to focus on peace.

    The world of spirituality is still trying to come to grips with quantum mechanics, through better and worse ways. Probably the most notably pop presentation is “What the Bleep Do We Know?” (http://www.whatthebleep.com/), but I really find Biocentrism (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biocentrism) to be the most interesting, especially since it seems to converge nicely with the philosophy of Descartes, Kant, and Heidegger. And, for that matter, ideas of will-magic laid out most notably by Crowley.

    So, in short, although these particular pages might seem a bit wacky and out there, I can’t say with any level of certainty that they’re totally off base. In fact, they probably have a lot more foundation than people give them credit for.

    Yum, yum, Robert! As always you add incredible depth! I think you should have a spiritual/philosophical column here at Sex and the 405. Seriously.

Gamers Won’t Be Seduced, Will Stare At Random Cleav Instead

That Steam allows the objectification and sexualization of female characters in a variety of its games but refuses to accept a game about actually engaging with women in a more interactive fashion is astonishingly backward.

FetLife Is Not Safe for Users

That the site doesn’t take measures to protect user content and has shown incompetence or negligence in regard to user privacy, all the while prohibiting victims from warning others about predatory behavior creates an environment where it is nearly impossible for members of the community to take care of themselves and one another. By enabling FetLife to continue espousing a code of silence, allowing the spinning self-created security issues as “attacks,” and not pointing out how disingenuous FetLife statements about safety are, we are allowing our community to become a breeding ground for exploitation.

Why You Should Vote No On Prop 35

Should people who benefit (parents, siblings, children, roommates!) from the earnings of “commercial sex acts” (any sexual conduct connected to the giving or receiving of something of value) be charged with human trafficking? Should someone who creates obscene material that is deemed “deviant” be charged as with human trafficking? Should someone who profits from obscene materials be charged with human trafficking? Should people transporting obscene materials be charged with human trafficking? Should a person who engages in sex with someone claiming to be above the age of consent or furnishing a fake ID to this effect be charged with human trafficking? What if I told you the sentences for that kind of conviction were eight, 14 or 20 years in prison, a fine not to exceed $500,000, and life as a registered sex offender?

Pretty and Calls Herself a Geek? Attention Whore!

If you are a woman, you might be given a chance to prove yourself in this community. Since there is no standard definition of what a “geek” is and it will vary from one judge to the next anyway, chances of failing are high (cake and grief counseling will be available after the conclusion of the test!). If you somehow manage to succeed, you’ll be tested again and again by anyone who encounters you until you manage to establish yourself like, say, Felicia Day. But even then, you’ll be questioned. As a woman, your whole existence within the geek community will be nothing but a series of tests — if you’re lucky. If you aren’t lucky, you’ll be harassed and threatened and those within the culture will tacitly agree that you deserve it.

Cuddle Chemical? Moral Molecule? Not So Fast

Zak’s original field, it turns out, is economics, a far cry from the hearts and teddy bears we imagine when we consider his nickname. But after performing experiments on generosity, Zak stumbled on the importance of trust in interactions, which led him, rather inevitably, to research about oxytocin. Oxytocin, you might remember, is a hormone that has been linked previously to bonding — between mothers and children primarily, but also between partners. What Zak has done is take the research a step further, arguing in his recent book, The Moral Molecule, that oxytocin plays a role in determining whether we are good or evil.

How to Avoid Pissing off a Stripper

Let’s talk about the strippers. Whether they like to be half-naked or not, whether they enjoy turning you on or not, there’s one thing they all have in common: they’re working. Whether you think that taking one’s clothes off for money is a great choice of career is really beside the point (is it a possibility for you to make $500 per hour at your job without a law degree? Just asking). These women are providing fantasy, yes, but that is their job. And as a patron of the establishment where they work, you need to treat them like you would anyone else who provides a service to you.
