Here Is A Happy Friday Thought

perhaps this entry is a bit blush-worthy, but whatever.

so anyway, i had just read in the Times about a new book, wherein we learn that science is awfully hard-pressed to provide evolutionary explanation for the female orgasm. didja see that?

but then i read this delicious take on the findings by the illustrious mr. morford and thought i should share:
Woman's orgasm has no evolutionary purpose? Bull. Woman's orgasm is proof of evolution, baby. Spiritual, karmic, celestial evolution. It is what propels us forward, brings us light and awareness and deep laughing cosmic moan and makes much of life worth living. And if we lose our grip on that notion and insist on devolving at our current rate, we will be in deep trouble indeed.

  2. While this is a very good explanation in itself, I've also heard that the female orgasm aids in conception.

  3. shananigans,

    the book discusses that point and shows, apparently, that it doesn't.

  4. Hmmmm The book says it doesnt. I say it does - here is my point - I am more likely to copulate with someone who is going to see that I reach that point rather than someone that is going to wham-bam me. So - guy sees that I have one=he gets to go again. Guy doesn't see that I have one = he doesn't get to go again. Therefore, frequency aids in reproduction!

  5. Agree.

    If sex didn't feel so good, we would never do it. And then, in theory, humans would eventually die out. So the fact that sex is pleasurable definitely aids in evolution. There's no question.

    I'm definitely imaginary

  6. Thinking about it, sex is pretty important to evolution. This makes me think of the Shakers, a religious sect at its peak in 1840.

    Of course, "the Shakers were celibate, they did not marry or bear children"

    Wow, I wonder why you don't see many of them around these days?

  7. And, uhhh, girls having orgasms is pretty cool too.

  8. A woman's orgasm has been proven to increase the chances of conception.

  9. The book is wrong. I have other books, with plenty of scientific testing and research that suggests it DOES aid in conception. The contractions of the uterus help draw the sperm in and move them towards the egg faster.

  12. I was a little taken aback by his comments on Christians and Republicans... that we're supposed to just lie there and think of paint colors for the kitchen ceiling? NOT TRUE! I am both a republican and a Christian and I love to have the crazy kind: hairpulling, backscratching, dizzy, passionate kind of orgasm... anything else is just... well... I don't know, I've never had any other kind.

  13. Don't tell me... they are planning to prove that evolution doesn't exist by destroying the value of the female orgasm...

  14. erm, i was kinda hoping we could just enjoy this post in a sweet and simple way, acknowledging that the female body is pretty amazing in ways science doesn't even need to explain. you know?

    I had just read the remarkable mr. morford's column and was about to email it to all of my friends (imaginary and real...you included) when I stopped by and found that you'd already read it...and even better, shared it with all of your friends.

    *raises a glass to our local hero* To the illustrious Mr. Morford, thank you for being the defender of our spritual, karmic, celestial evolution! Now drink up and get out on the town and find yourselves a deep laughing cosmic moan.

    Have a great weekend everyone!

  17. there is nothing finer in the world than the female body....

    now if they could just change the mood swings of the female that would be perfect

    ReplyDelete
  18. I think the orgasm is tied to the moodswings. More orgasm, less mood swings....therefore to make the world a safer and nicer place we men need to maximize the f'gasm.

  19. 1/ Love, I mean LOVE your blog!
    2/ Great link to a great article! I would argue, though, that you didn't quote the best line of it, which really has to be the one about how a female orgasm is "at once directly hardwired to the deep chthonic Earth while at the same time has the bright shimmering cosmos on speed dial." I mean, honestly, how many people do you know who can use "orgasm" and "chthonic" in a sentence, no less the SAME sentence?!
    Keep writing!

  20. Just getting caught up on the blog...but this was also on SFGate about 2 weeks ago.... B/S I bet it was a guy that wrote about this crap!

  21. Counsel from elders seems to be a lost treasure. Lost are lessons learned that may contain pearls of wisdom that could have benefited the seeker. Having survived my share of hazardous crossings, I am pleased to be able to share a thought or two. The main lesson is to keep on learning. Read and seek out other points of view like visiting your blog. Finding what is ultimately important has lead me to appreciate actuality, efficiency and mindfulness. Helping others to see some of the forest through the trees is a rewarding benefit of age and maturity. happy thought
