Frisky Friday - Ancient Self Love

So they discovered a man in Pompeii whose naughty bits were out when he died. Judging by the look frozen on his face, he did not suddenly die and fall that way, but decided to exit the world with a bang.

People are trying to protect this man's dignity saying that perhaps he was peeing or protecting his package by covering it with his hand.

Basically, they are ashamed for him and feel a need to cover up a natural human thing that has been demonized. Look, I get there are some weird things out there when it comes to masturbation like the sex robots that are being made to allow men to have a pretend relationship with a female seeming machine, but that doesn't mean there was anything wrong with this man dying the way he did.

Stop projecting your beliefs on a man who was part of an ancient civilization. He chose to experience a little pleasure when the world around him was blowing up with no hope of survival.

I mean, he could've chosen to grab the nearest woman against his will or something equally awful. He chose to touch himself. Babies do it in the womb. Children do it at young ages. Teens do it A LOT. Adults do it too.

Sure, it might be an odd sight in a museum that children would laugh at, but sexuality is a natural part of human existence and I've never understood why nearly all of it is treated as disgusting or taboo.

Some things may make propagation of the human species difficult, but I don't believe we should have the right to say someone can't like something like sexual spanking, as an example. We might not understand it, but we don't need to. As long as no one is being abused and no children or special needs individuals are involved, go enjoy yourself.

If you saw the sky that day and were smart enough to realize there wasn't time to run, would you just stand there and wait for death, or would you get it on with your partner if you had one? Maybe you'd just hold them close, but that's not what some people would do.

Salut,

The Gauntlet That Was October

I had a lot of things happen in October. I watched Frankenstein in the cemetery with friends. I had tea with a friend. I started a new sport: curling. This is really fun and I'm enjoying the level of activity it provides and all the strategic elements. I'll do a separate post on it soon. Unfortunately, soon after my first game, I came down with Covid and so did the friend who I had tea with, so I think we both caught it at the place we went to. That wasn't fun. I already posted about that. I was fortunate to be free of it in time to attend Can-Con where I took in lots of panels, saw some of the wonderful writer community, bought many new books, and volunteered to help out in the rooms. The following weekend, I went to the livestream for Danielle Allard's new album release, followed by the in person release. As part of this, she has a 6 video series that releases every Sunday on her YouTube at 1:15 PM EDT. Video number 2, Falling Into Place, is one that I feel fortunate

2023 - Week 40

I felt a touch rough on Monday. After exchanging some shoes, I needed electrolytes. The heat with the egg thing made me a bit nauseus. I had lots of fluids before having noodles for dinner. That made me feel better. When Tuesday came about, I was looking forward to what I might be learning at GSL curling in the evening. I was also excited to being on the ice as a break from the unseasonal heat. It's spooky season! It's supposed to be a cool and cuddly time. We should be wearing hoodies (or bunny hugs if you prefer). Instead, I was sweating in jeans as I simply walked from my condo building to my car. Wednesday's plan was streaming, but I also hoped to fit an exchange at Home Depot in as I got the wrong shelf size for a project. Really, my original plan for something didn't work, so I was choosing to go a different way. I did stream, but I didn't get to Home Depot. Thursday featured work followed by packing for my spooky weekend away with friends. I got my oil and my

Under Siege

My city is under attack. I wish I was being facetious.  The so-called "freedom" convoy is here and so far this is what has transpired: 1. They parked on the war memorial. These people who call themselves patriots. This is where the Unknown Soldier rests. This is where Corporal Nathan Cirullo lost his life in October of 2014. The cars were towed, but who knows what actual repercussions they will face. 2. Later, when asked to move away from memorial, one stood and jumped on the tomb itself while others cheered.  3. Despite having port-a-potties provided for by the mayor, they've been defecating on Parliament Hill, in snowbanks, and on streets nearby.  4. Flags being flown include the Confederate flag of the United States, Trump flags, the Quebec equivalent to the Confederate flag, upside down Canada flags, regular Canada flags, Fuck Trudeau flags, libertarian flags, and ones adorned with swastikas. Yeah, this is totally about freedom rather than racism, white su
