new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

the internal clitoris episode iii

at the museum of sex:


"
consider this: in over five million years of human evolution, only one organ has come to exist for the sole purpose of providing pleasure – the clitoris. it is not required for reproduction. it doesn’t have a urethra running through it like the penis, and thus, does not urinate. its sole function – its singular, wonderful purpose – is to make a woman feel good!!


try asking the next person you encounter to tell you where the clitoris is located. having posed this question to others many times myself, i’ll guess that the majority of answers you receive will sound something like, “it’s that small bulb at the top of my lips,” or, “that’s the button up under the hood.” although these responses aren’t exactly wrong, the interesting truth is that the majority of the clitoris is actually within the pelvis – that is, it’s far more internal than external. even most of the women i coach, women who are generally worldly and well-informed about their own bodies, react with a combination of fascination and confusion when i explain that their clitoris extends deep within them.

  1. "consider this: in over five million years of human evolution, only one organ has come to exist for the sole purpose of providing pleasure – the clitoris. it is not required for reproduction."
    While not required for reproduction, the clitoris might assist reproduction. Desmond Morris wrote in The Naked Ape that perhaps women orgasm (and orgasm so powerfully) because, to aid conception, she has to remain horizontal so gravity doesn't make the semen dribble out. To stop her from getting up and walking around after sex, she quite literally has to be too f**ked to move. ;)

    I hope this comment isn't too graphic. o_0.

  2. i'd read about morris' idea as well, but i belief it had been rejected?
    i have to look it up.in any case, orgasm doesn't have to occur for pregnancy to take place.

  3. You're right. I think that book was more conjecture than fact. Sounded plausible, though. Something for Myth Busters Explicité? ;)
