Sex without love is an empty experience, but, as empty experiences go, it's one of the best.

No other form of sexual activity has been so frequently discussed, so roundly condemned, and more universally practiced, than masturbation.

Lust is rooted in biology, love is a matter of chemistry, and sex is a matter of physics. To really get kinky, however, requires engineering.

An 8-year-old girl went to her dad, who was working in the yard and asked him, "Daddy, what is sex?" The father was surprised that she would ask such a question, but decided that if she's old enough to know to ask the question, then she's old enough to get a straight answer. Steeling himself to leave nothing out, he proceeded to tell her all about human reproduction and the joys and responsibilities of intercourse. When he finished explaining, the little girl was looking at him with her mouth hanging open, eyes wide in amazement. Seeing the look on her face, the father asked her, "Why did you ask this question, honey?" The little girl replied, "Mom says that dinner will be ready in just a couple of sex."

A minister, a priest, and a rabbi went for a hike one very hot day. They were sweating freely by the time they came upon a small lake with a sandy beach. Since it was a secluded spot, they left all their clothes on a big log, ran down the beach to the lake, and jumped in the water for a long, refreshing swim. Refreshed, they were halfway back up the beach to the spot they'd left their clothes, when a group of ladies from town came along. Unable to get to their clothes in time, the minister and the priest covered their privates and the rabbi covered his face while they ran for cover in the bushes. After the ladies wandered on and the men got dressed again, the minister and the priest asked the rabbi why he covered his face rather than his privates. The rabbi replied, "I don't know about you, but in MY congregation, it's my face they would recognize."

(This comes from Australia...) I am in almost terminal shock at the revelation by the Republican Party that a politician lied to the public. And it was such an important lie. So much more important than Jack Kennedy's firm statement that the U.S.A. was not involved in the Bay of Pigs invasion. So much more important than Dwight Eisenhower's denial that U-2 spy planes were passing over Russia. So much more important than Lyndon Johnson's statement that a U.S. ship had been attacked by a North Vietnamese torpedo boat. So much more important than Richard Nixon's denial of any involvement with the Watergate burglary, and more important than Ronald Reagan's lies about almost everything. All of that is trivia. The Republicans have nailed Clinton on something that really matters: a sex act! An act that threatens the national security of the United States of America. I always thought a gentleman was supposed to lie about such things. Surely you wonder what impression all this is creating in other countries. The whole thing has been summed up by a letter-to-the-editor in Australia. In a letter to the Sidney Morning Herald, a writer nailed it in one line: "Thank God we got the convicts and they got the Puritans."

01:11 PM ET 07/10/99 Swingers Get Together in Nevada Swingers Get Together in Nevada By SCOTT SONNER= Associated Press Writer= RENO, Nev. (AP) _ There haven't been any Austin Powers sightings. But thousands of swingers have convened here this weekend to view erotic art, attend human sexuality workshops and do, uh, what swingers do. The hotel pool was dominated Friday by itsy-bitsy, string bikinis. One man wore a T-shirt that read, ``Guess Where I'm Pierced.'' Just don't call it a ``swingers conference'' _ at least not around chief organizer Robert McGinley, a psychologist from Anaheim, Calif. ``It is NOT a swingers conference. It is NOT a sex conference,'' McGinley, founder of Lifestyles Organization, said during an opening briefing Friday. For the record, it's the ``Lifestyles '99 Reno Rendezvous,'' which touts its educational programs, personal freedom and sexual equality. Workshops include ``Romance on the Internet,'' ``HIV Update,'' ``500 Unusual Sex Practices,'' ``Growing Up With Kinky Parents'' and ``Sex Without Guilt: The Morality of Sexual Pluralism.'' Porn star Ron Jeremy was slated to speak on ``Sex and the Law.'' There's a session called ``Introduction to Swinging ... for experienced and novice swingers alike'' _ consenting couples who swap spouses or practice other-than-monogamous relationships. It offers tips on how ``to handle jealousy, personal hygiene and safe sex.'' ``A lot of people here are involved in swinging,'' McGinley conceded. ``But the Lifestyles Convention sponsors no sex acts whatsoever. What it does is let people learn about it.'' McGinley said that after 30 years of study, he still can't define a ``swinger.'' ``We have nudists here. We have people involved in threesomes. We have people who are plain ordinary couples exploring the possibility of enhancing their relationship,'' he said. Janine Hansen, founder of the Nevada Eagle Forum affiliated with conservative Phyllis Schlafly, criticized the convention as reinforcing a negative stereotype of Nevada as the ``Sin State.'' ``It promotes the image that this isn't a stable community,'' she told the Reno News & Review. Reno Hilton officials said they'd had only one complaint, from two Las Vegas mothers traveling with a gymnastics team of girls ages 10 to 14. Women wearing see-through outfits with string-bikini underwear were parading through the hotel and casino Thursday night, Linda Levy and Jo Knapp said. ``Never in my 42 years of life have I seen anything like this,'' Levy said. ``It's horrible. It's disgusting. We were never told by the Hilton there'd be anything like this.'' Hotel managers agreed to transfer them to another hotel across town, although Hilton official Rhett Long said the team's tour director was notified ahead of time and that convention-goers haven't acted inappropriately. ``The worst thing they've seen are thong bikinis and those are not against the law,'' Long said. Steve Mason, a San Diego psychologist and convention speaker, said he thought about half of the 4,000 people at the conference were ``swingers.'' ``A lot of them drop their kids off at the grandparents and they're ready to kick their heels up for the night,'' said Mason, who first addressed the convention in 1989. ``I was amazed by the smiles on people's faces. They've gotten rid of one of the biggest sources of stress in our lives. They handle sex as a normal part of life,'' he said. McGinley founded the Lifestyles Organization in 1973 with a retreat attended by about 125 in Riverside, Calif. The group moved its convention to Nevada because of legal battles with liquor officers in California who won't allow erotic art exhibits in the same building with liquor sales.

MUSINGS...The Magazine Explosion Does it ever seem to you like the magazine racks at airports and grocery stores are running out of shelf space? A recent edition of ADVERTISING AGE carried a story about a college professor who tracks magazines. He found that during the last 15 years, there have been 10,201 new magazines launched! What intrigued me about this study was not so much the number of magazines but their subject matter and what it says about the interests of people and influences that are reshaping our culture. The top five subject matter categories were sports (954), sex (912), crafts, games, hobbies and models (750), special interests (674) and celebrities (594). Most notable launches of the last 15 years were COOKING LIGHT, ELLE, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, FAST COMPANY, GEORGE, IN STYLE, MARTHA STEWART LIVING, MAXIM, MEN'S HEALTH and WIRED.

While it is right to stress the dangers of the permissive society, the argument from danger is not in itself a good argument, because it seems to imply that, if the danger could be removed, if there was no risk of a child and no peril of infection, then the objection would be removed, too. It tends to imply that the objection is to the attendant dangers and not to the thing itself. But if sexual intercourse before and outside marriage is against the teaching of Jesus, then the thing is not only dangerous, it is wrong in itself.

Calf Birth A man was helping one of his cows give birth, when he noticed his 4-year-old son standing wide-eyed at the fence, soaking in the whole event. The man thought, "Great, he's 4 and I'm gonna have to start explaining the birds and bees. No need to jump the gun, I'll just let him ask, and I'll answer." After everything was over, the man walked over to his son and said, "Well son, do you have any questions?" "Just one," gasped the still wide-eyed lad. "How fast was that calf going when he hit that cow?"

No, John Quincy Adams did not sell an American girl to the Russian Czar from a collection of love slaves he supposedly kept at the embassy. But this did not stop his enemies from saying he did. Actually, the former minister to Russia was possibly the most prudish man to become president. Like his father John Adams, the second president, "Quincy" was overly serious, stuffy, and in his own words, "a man of reserved, cold, austere and forbidding manners." Still, the president had one burning passion, and that was skinny-dipping. Rising at 3 AM, Adams would sneak out of the White House, and frolic in the chilly Potomac. There were hazards, like the time someone stole his clothes. One dark morning Adams heard a cry, "Come here!" He looked up out of the water to see a woman on the riverbank, seated on his clothes. Adams swam over. She introduced herself as Anne Royall, a newspaper reporter who hoped for an interview on the major issue of the day, whether or not to have a national bank. Adams begged her to go behind the bushes so he could dress, promising that afterward he would gladly grant the interview. "No you don't," Royall refused, as the president bobbed in chin-deep water. "I stalked you from the Mansion down here," she said firmly, explaining she had repeatedly "hammered at the White House" with no response. She told Adams that if he rose from the water, she would scream, alerting some fishermen around the bend. Considering the scandal that could create, the shivering president quickly granted the interview.

· Virginity Pledges Work...For A While: A study published in the American Journal of Sociology reports that teenagers who publicly pledge to remain virgins until marriage delay having sex by about 18 months in comparison with their non-pledging peers. Among those who make such promises, about 50% remained virgins until age 20. Among non-pledgers, 50% were no longer virgins at age 17. While the study admits many factors play into decisions of when to have sex, the study shows that the pledge did in fact add to the delay. At age 15 82% of non-pledgers are virgins, compared with 90% of pledgers. By 18, 32% of non-pledgers remained virgins, while 54% of those who had made pledges had still not had sex. Columbia University sociologist, Peter Bearman says it is "pure pledge effect." The study does point out that when pledgers break their promises and do have sex, they most often do so without any form of contraceptive, since it would be illogical for a student to both pledge abstinence and carry a contraceptive. (AP, January 4, 2001).

· Survey Reveals Sex Practices of Boys: A recent study by the Urban Institute provides the first national data on the sexual practices of 15-19 year old boys. While much has been made of pregnancy prevention, sex education programs have talked little about behaviors which don't lead to pregnancy. The study found that while 55% of the boys claimed to have had sexual intercourse, over 2/3 had participated in some other sexual behavior such as oral sex, anal sex, or masturbation by a female. The study found that most boys do not consider these "activities" as sex, but do see them as a precursor or substitute for vaginal intercourse. A separate study of college students also found that more than half of undergraduates do not find oral sex to be a break of abstinence. Regardless of the exact definition of what constitutes "sexual relations," health experts are concerned about these behaviors which can be risky. Incidents of pharyngeal gonorrhea have increased dramatically in adolescent girls. Experts are looking into revamping sex education to include information about these other sexual behaviors.

A woman takes her 16-year-old daughter to the doctor. The doctor says, "Okay, Mrs. Jones, what's the problem?" The mother says, "It's my daughter Darla. She keeps getting these cravings, she's putting on weight and is sick most mornings." The doctor gives Darla a good examination then turns to the mother and says, "Well, I don't know how to tell you this but your Darla is pregnant. About 4 months would be my guess." The mother says, "Pregnant?! She can't be, she has never ever been left alone with a man! Have you Darla?" Darla says, "No mother! I've never even kissed a man!" The doctor walked over to the window and just stares out it. About five minutes pass and finally the mother says, "Is there something wrong out there doctor?" The doctor replies, "No, not really, it's just that the last time anything like this happened, a star appeared in the east and three wise men came over the hill. I'll be damned if I'm going to miss it this time!"

There is an old story told by Jewish Rabbis. It tells of a man in a boat full of people, drilling a hole in the bottom underneath his seat. The Captain tries to stop him, by telling him that if he makes a hole the boat will sink and they will all drown. 'But,' the man replies, 'it is my own seat; I can do whatever I like under my seat.'

By AMBROSE CLARK TEHRAN - Arab men are going wild over an outrageous new entertainment craze that's taken this city by storm - wet burqa contests! Drooling, cheering men are packing makeshift nightclubs where shapely gals get hosed down while wearing the burqa - which clings to every curve and corner of their bodies even though they're wearing a garment designed for the ultimate in modesty. Modeled after the wet T-shirt contests that show off America's most buxom young beauties, the burqa competitions award cash prizes in categories including Best Breasts and Butt. "No one ever said a woman in a burqa couldn't get wet and shake it," shrugs Mohammed Benradi, who runs the racy contests. "They tell us that women have to wear the burqa in public. That's what they're doing. "They're just doing a little more for us, that's all." You can find a wet burqa contest in at least six different locations in Tehran on just about any night if you know where to look - and whom to ask. Fear of reprisals by strict religious officials keeps the contest locations secret and ever-changing. "You have to work a little to find the party, but it's worth it," one man sighs during a break at one of Benradi's contests. "The girls are really built, and Mohammed uses so much water on them they might as well be naked! "But they're not naked, that's the wonderful thing," he adds. "We get all the fun of sinning, but we have not really sinned." It's not just men who are cramming into the sexy shows. Women are also lining up to compete. "Mohammed is very good to us - he doesn't let the men touch us or use bad language," says a 20-year-old contestant who identifies herself only as Resa. Resa says Benradi awards generous prize money: The equivalent of $100, which is an enormous sum to many of Tehran's poorer residents. "I have won three times," Resa says proudly, "and my family has been eating very well because of it. And no one can tell it's me under there, so I am not ashamed. "I'm glad Mohammed came up with this idea," she adds. "We've had to wear these awful things for years now - it's about time we got something out of it."

On the first day of college, the Dean addressed the students, pointing out some of the rules: "The female dormitory will be out-of-bounds for all male students, and the male dormitory to the female students. Anybody caught breaking this rule will be fined $20 the first time." He continued: "Anybody caught breaking this rule the second time will be fined $60. Being caught a third time will incur a hefty fine of $180. Are there any questions?" At this point, a male student in the crowd inquired: "How much for a season pass?"

Hook Ups On Campus: Perhaps the name communicates how non personal and fleeting these relationships are in the minds of most students. The term has been common for over a decade, but only recently has research confirmed the prevalence of the behavior on campus. In 2000 Elizabeth Paul published the first academic look at the ritual of the college hook up. Her research is startling. In a survey of 555 undergrads, she found that 78% had "hooked up" - a term defined as a one time sexual encounter the could range from making out to intercourse, in which the two partners had no plans to pursue a relationship - or perhaps even talk again. 77.7% of women and 84.2% of the men reported having hooked up. Of those 60% said that their hook up included more "genital touching" than "meaningful conversation." The vast majority involve alcohol. A "good hook up" is defined as one about which no one finds out or talks about later. Some researchers feel that this generation may learn a lot about sex in college, but come away with very little knowledge of how to build a meaningful relationship. (MSNBC.com October 4, 2004)

http://www.christianitytoday.com/bc/2005/001/3.8.html American Christians live in the richest nation on earth and enjoy an average household income of $42,409.17 The World Bank reports that 1.2 billion of the world's poorest people try to survive on just one dollar a day. At least one billion people have never heard the gospel. The Ronsvalles point out that if American Christians just tithed, they would have another $143 billion available to empower the poor and spread the gospel.18 Studies by the United Nations suggest that just an additional $70–$80 billion a year would be enough to provide access to essential services like basic health care and education for all the poor of the earth.19 If they did no more than tithe, American Christians would have the private dollars to foot this entire bill and still have $60–$70 billion more to do evangelism around the world. ... Fully 26 percent of traditional evangelicals do not think premarital sex is wrong, and 46 percent of nontraditional evangelicals say it is morally okay.24 And extramarital sex? Of traditional evangelicals, 13 percent say it is okay for married persons to have sex with someone other than one's spouse. And 19 percent of nontraditional evangelicals say adultery is morally acceptable.25 ... Only 9 percent of born-again adults and 2 percent of born-again teenagers have a biblical worldview

<b>Unbalanced cohabitation:</b> Apparently commitment isn't all a man is avoiding by living with a girlfriend outside of marriage. Among cohabitating pairs, women contribute more than 70% of the couple's income. Both formal and informal surveys indicate that in such situations, most women expect the relationship to lead to marriage, while most men do not. (Touchstone April 2006 p. 48) Glen's takeaway: more evidence that sex outside of marriage is not primarily an expression of love - it's an expression of selfishness and self-delusion.

The conception of the relations between men and women in ante-bellum America idealized an inseparable blending of sexuality, companionship, tenderness, loyalty, and mutual respect. This combination, which defined love, was regarded as the richest gift nature had given humans. The sexual component in this ensemble has ascended to a preeminent position in this list, as well as in the larger set of life's delights, because other sources of happiness have descended. The third-ranked chimpanzee in a troop becomes the alpha male if the two more dominant animals suffer mortal wounds, even though his inherent characteristics remain unchanged.

Martin Schein and Edgar Hale, of Pennsylvania State University, devoted themselves to studying the sexual behaviour of turkeys in the 1960s, and discovered that the birds are not choosy. Taking a model of a female turkey, they progressively removed body parts until the males lost interest. Even when all that remained was a head on a stick, the male turkeys remained turned on.
