Vegans Say Sex With Carnivores Stinks?

I wonder how much of New Zealand’s public money went into this study.

Vegans say sex with meat-eaters stinks

NEW YORK, Aug. 2 (UPI) — Strict vegetarians known as vegans find sex with meat-eaters repulsive, or as one New York vegan described it, “pungent” and “stinky.”
New Zealand researcher Annie Potts, of the University of Canterbury’s Center for Human-Animal Studies, interviewed 157 vegans, 120 of whom were female, on their sexual preferences.
In an interview with ABC News in New York, Potts said all of the female vegans “didn’t want to engage in intimate sex … because of the smells and tastes of their body fluids.” Full Story

6932594Well, dear readers, Mr. Vanessa enjoys a vegan diet, while Vanessa chooses to be an omnivore. Mr. Vanessa says he hates when vegans make comments like this…because it “ruins it for the rest of us” and makes all vegans look like elitist assholes.

And Mr. Vanessa has, to date, registered no complaints about the taste of Vanessa’s love honey.

This whole argument, however, makes one wonder whether vegans should be consuming any human bodily fluid in the first place…though you won’t hear me complaining.

Sex or Fashion? Ummm, that’s a toughie.

Are women seriously more interested in fashion than sex? Guys, you might need to reconsider that birthday gift…

Study suggests women value clothes over sex
According to a pre-Valentine poll taken by consumer products company Unilever, the average woman would prefer to abstain from sex for up to 15 months in exchange for a closet full of new clothes.”

I’m not really all that concerned with clothes. All I can say is…can I show you my new Gucci bag? It’s to die for!!

The Benefits of Pornography?

Studies like this fascinate me.   I’m not entirely convinced that there is a causative relationship, but it’s cool, anyway!

From James McConville, onlineopinion.com:

In a paper just released in the United States titled Porn Up, Rape Down, Northwestern University Law Professor Anthony D’amato crunches the numbers to reach the conclusion:

The incidence of rape in the United States has declined 85 per cent in the past 25 years while access to pornography has become freely available to teenagers and adults. The Nixon and Reagan Commissions tried to show that exposure to pornographic materials produced social violence. The reverse may be true: that pornography has reduced social violence.

Who knows?  I’ll be interested to read reports twenty years from now about how the seemingly limitless availability of porn on the internet has affected the rate of social violence.
