Because I'm a hippie, I just had to post this and really, who doesn't like to have orgasms????
> The Global Orgasm for Peace was conceived by Donna Sheehan, 76, and Paul Reffell, 55, whose immodest goal is for everyone in the world to have an orgasm Dec. 22 while focusing on world peace.
''The orgasm gives out an incredible feeling of peace during it and after it,'' Reffell said Sunday. ''Your mind is like a blank. It's like a meditative state. And mass meditations have been shown to make a change.''
The couple are no strangers to sex and social activism. Sheehan, no relation to anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan, brought together nearly 50 women in 2002 who stripped naked and spelled out the word ''Peace.''
I have to object just a little bit to [the reporting here] as I do NOT think that stripping nekkid for photography and activism is a sexual act. The nekkid body is not overtly sexual, it's just flesh. I think the the American society is so tightly wound up about the nekkid body that people have a hard time differentiating between nekkidness and sexuality. They are not necessarily the same thing. In that vein, I suggest people check out (not at work) [Naked Jen's blog], especially, [this entry]. She rocks!
