Okay, the tagline there about internal godhood being easy is total clickbait horseshit. I just wanted to get your lazy ass to read the article. Maybe I should have thrown a picture of bikini tits up there or a dude with a six pack or something about how you can get into heaven by sending me money (which I’m pretty sure would actually work). But this article is about Occult spirituality, and the bad news on that front is that everything involved with the Occult is complicated beyond any human being’s capacity for comprehension by its very nature. The multiverse of consciousness is not just stranger than we imagine it to be, it’s stranger than we can imagine it to be. But don’t let that sobering reality get you down, with a little bit of effort you can be well on your way to fucking with your own head until what’s currently considered impossible becomes quite deliciously “real”.… Read the rest

Here’s some counter-intuitive food for thought. A study in the Journal of Sexual Archives suggests that some women might fake their orgasms (and about 80% of women surveyed say that they have) because it turns them on. Perhaps related: Scientists think women (as well as some non-human female primates) moan and vocalize during sex to manipulate male behavior. Obviously, the findings of both of these studies are controversial to say the least, but if you want to learn more about the latter, you can Google “Female copulatory vocalization”.

A study in the Journal of Sexual Archives titled “The Faking Orgasm Scale for Women: Psychometric Properties” investigates a seemingly counterintuitive explanation: Women might fake orgasm to make their own experience more pleasurable. Authors hypothesized that a make-believe climax can actually be “relationship promoting and sexual pleasure-enhancing,” rather a performance to get sex “over with” or stroke a man’s ego.
Starting all the way back in 2004, the Vatican began releasing calenders featuring 12 of its hunkiest clergy. Now in its 10th year, the featured holy-men can be viewed at this link. Sorry to those hoping for something risqué: they are all dressed in cassock.

Now in its 10th edition, the annual wall calendar best known for its black-and-white photos of attractive priests continues to spark grumbles of controversy in Italy.
Officially, it’s called “Il Calendario Romano” — The Roman Calendar — but it is popularly referred to as the “Roman beefcake calendar.”
According to Piero Pazzi, the Venice-based photographer who takes the photos and produces the calendar each year, almost all of the men he photographs — many of them in front of churches or religious monuments — are priests or seminarians. But the religious connotations end there.
According to Italian media reports, the calendar has become a kind of icon for groups ranging from female Protestant clergy to gay men.
I have a feeling that a few of these might be the work of pranksters, but according to Addicting Info, the Casual Encounters section of internet want-ad page CraigsList get busy during CPAC. Apparently there are a lot of conservatives in town looking for some no-strings-attached play on the side.

CPAC – I need a MAN. NOW! – m4m – 36 (CPAC convention)
So. I spend so much time in rural Indiana, CPAC is my only outlet for this sort of thing.
What I’m looking for, you, a masculine Ayn Rand, me, the 47%. And I want you to slap me around hard and give it to me good.
Or. . .you could bust in my room, catch me trying to enroll in a healthcare market place/state exchange, and the punish me for it. Punish me good.
We can meet at the bar first, if you want.
The Independent reports on an accidentally invented orgasm machine that delivers climax at the push of a button:
… Read the rest
Scientists have devised a machine that can help women achieve ‘emphatic’ orgasms at the push of a button.
Slightly smaller than a packet of cigarettes, the device uses electrodes attached to the patients spine, with orgasms being triggered by a remote control.
The machine is not intended for a mass market looking to spice up their day at whim or expedite their sexual encounters however, but for women who normally struggle to achieve orgasm.
North Carolina surgeon Stuart Meloy told New Scientist how he conjured up the idea while performing a procedure on a female patient.
“I was placing the electrodes and suddenly the woman started exclaiming emphatically,” he said. “I asked her what was up and she said, ‘You’re going to have to teach my husband to do that’.” Spinal implant is controlled via remote control (Picture: New Scientist)
Clinical trials of the machine are due to commence later in the year, with Meloy adding that it could help couples with withering sex lives.
King Tutankhamun’s father was Ahkenaten, who among other things instituted a new heliocentric religion that led to the persecution of Egypt’s priestly class. Tut (incidentally, my favorite honky) rolled back much of his father’s radical changes, apparently something the priests wished him to continue in death.

Egypt’s King Tutankhamun was embalmed in an unusual way, including having his penis mummified at a 90-degree angle, in an effort to combat a religious revolution unleashed by his father, a new study suggests.
The pharaoh was buried in Egypt’s Valley of the Kings without a heart (or a replacement artifact known as a heart scarab); his penis was mummified erect; and his mummy and coffins were covered in a thick layer of black liquid that appear to have resulted in the boy-king catching fire.
These anomalies have received both scholarly and media attention in recent years, and a new paper in the journal Études et Travaux by Egyptologist Salima Ikram, a professor at the American University in Cairo, proposes a reason why they, and other Tutankhamun burial anomalies, exist.
Abby Zimet writes at Common Dreams:
The head of the Italian police officer’s union is charging Nina De Chiffre, a 20-year-old art student, with “sexual violence” and “causing offence to a public official” after she famously kissed a riot cop’s helmet visor during a protest against a new bullet train. Really. Despite his ordeal, the hero officer stayed calm, explaining, “When I’m wearing my uniform I represent the police institution, and I have an obligation not to react to provocation.” Critics of the charges argue he was just asking for it by being out on the street dressed like that.
Imagine if U.S. cops had an obligation not to react to provocation.
For everyone who thinks voting doesn’t matter I’ve got two words for you: legal weed. Okay, shut the fuck up now. Thank you. My state is currently not arresting people for up to an ounce of marijuana and it will soon be sold in stores, which is the greatest victory of the people thusfar in the drug war. Guess how that happened? One, some determined folks got it on the ballot and two, we voted for it. For the record, it wasn’t even close. Why am I bringing this up? For the most part I try and avoid politics in my writing (outside of the drug war) because I tend to think it takes away from a spiritual message that should be applicable to anyone regardless of political affiliation (man are people divided on politics in this country). But I just voted the other day and once again, had to endure a bunch of commentary from idiots on the internets about how “it doesn’t matter who you vote for man”.… Read the rest
Just what is Halal sex, you may well ask. Reuters explains:
A Turkish entrepreneur has opened what he says is the country’s first online sex shop for Muslims, selling everything from lubricants to herbal aphrodisiacs and offering advice on how to have “halal” sex.
Haluk Murat Demirel, 38, said he had been inspired to launch the site (www.bayan.helalsexshop.com) by friends who wanted sex advice and products but found the content on other websites and in specialist stores too explicit.
“Online sex shops usually have pornographic pictures, which makes Muslims uncomfortable. We don’t sell vibrators for example, because they are not approved by Islam,” Demirel said.
Sexual mores provoke frequent debate in the majority Muslim but constitutionally secular country. There are relatively few sex shops, even in major cities, although in parts of Istanbul those that do exist advertise themselves with neon signs…
