10 Things You Didn’t Know About Orgasms

Transcript:
Alright. I’m going to show you a couple of images from a very diverting paper in The Journal of Ultrasound in Medicine. I’m going to go way out on a limb and say that it is the most diverting paperever published in The Journal of Ultrasound in Medicine. The title is “Observations of In-Utero Masturbation.” (Laughter) Okay. Now on the left you can see the hand — that’s the big arrow — and the penis on the right. The hand hovering. And over here we have, in the words of radiologist Israel Meisner, “The hand grasping the penis in a fashion resembling masturbation movements.” Bear in mind this was an ultrasound, so it would have been moving images.

Orgasm is a reflex of the autonomic nervous system. Now, this is the part of the nervous system that deals with the things that we don’t consciously control, like digestion, heart rate and sexual arousal.Read the rest

Guy Known as “Captain Beany” Gets 60 Baked Beans Tattooed on His Head

Captain-Beany2

It’s Friday, so here’s an absurd story of baked bean tattoos to get your weekend started.

Barry “Captain Beany” Kirk loves baked beans. So much so that he sat in a bathtub full of them and set a world record. Now he’s decided to take his love a step further and get beans tattooed on his head. It’s all for a good cause, mind you, each tattooed bean has a sponsor who pledged £60 to charity.

Sumitra via Oddity Central:

But the crazy stunt wasn’t all about him and his strange fascination with baked beans. 30 years ago, through his original bean stunt, Captain Beany not only managed to set a world record, but also raise a considerable amount of money for charity. The experience inspired him to quit his computing job and become a full-time fundraiser. For his 60th birthday, he came up with the idea of having baked beans tattooed on his head and asking people to sponsor each individual inking, with the proceeds going to a good cause.

The Indigestible Fleshy Sculptures of Cao Hui

I’m a big fan of grotesque art and I suspect that many of you Disinfonauts out there in interwebsland are as well.

“When you can assume that your audience holds the same beliefs you do, you can relax and use more normal means of talking to it; when you have to assume that it does not, then you have to make your vision apparent by shock — to the hard of hearing you shout, and for the almost-blind you draw large and startling figures.” Flannery O’Connor, Wise Blood

Six of one, half a dozen of the other…

Tuesday

3:45am:
“I know that I know, and that I don’t know.”

My Ram Dass alarm-tone wakes me early. I’m on the schedule today, but with no assigned medallion. So, I call-in to Citizen’s to let ‘em know to hold a cab.

But Barn-the-Stoner’s working the office and my alarm-tone has proven all too apt.  At the lot, Barney looks at me and bloodshot-eyes go wide as he turns to stare blankly at the peg-board of keys and medallions, then drawls,

“Uhh. Shit… I for-got yu were co-ming.”

 

4:25am:
I’m out in the lot sterilizing an Escape spare Barn dug up when I get a dispatch to the bowels of the Mission.… Read the rest

Clavis Artis — Over A Skin Of Dragon

ClavisArtis.MS.Verginelli-Rota.V3.118

Clavis Artis is the title of an alchemy manuscript created in Germany in the late seventeenth or early eighteenth century, attributed to the Persian Zoroaster (Zarathustra). The work is in three volumes of medium format, two of which are illustrated here. The text is in German Gothic script cursive and is accompanied by numerous illustrations in watercolor depicting alchemical images. There are also some pen drawings depicting laboratory instruments.

A copy of the manuscript was also present at the Duchess Anna Amalia Bibliothek, of Weimar, but was destroyed in the 2004 fire that hit the German library.… Read the rest

Raping the Gods: The Most Deranged Book of the Year?

raping whitneyBrian Whitney writes a lot of articles for Disinfo.com. He also is crazy, although not quite as insane as frequent disinfo contributor Thad McKraken.

Just in the last year Whitney has written, or had a hand in, books about sex robotsserial killersporn stars, and American terrorists.

He also has written the bombastic, highly offensive, and ridiculous Raping the Gods.

You might feel like you’ve probably been added to some kind of sexual predator watchlist after reading this book. But honestly, at this point, what’s one more?

Whitney’s Raping the Gods reads like the drunken ramblings of a borderline homeless drifter who sits next to you at a bar on a Tuesday afternoon. He sits right freaking next to you even though every other seat at the bar is empty. And after bumming one of your last three cigarettes, he starts in on this impossible and unbelievably offensive tale of moral and sexual deviance that you want to hate and run away from screaming like your hair is full of bees, but, like the narrator, you can’t — or at least I couldn’t. … Read the rest
