The trailer for Darren Aranofsky’s much-anticipated new film, Black Swan, was released this week. And I’m disappointed. This summer has sucked pretty hard for movies, and I’ve been hoping desperately that the fall was going to bring a sweep of much better films to make up for it. But apart from Never Let Me Go and Harry Potter, Black Swan was the only project on the horizon that looked promising. It looked like a taut psychological thriller with not one, but two female leads.
Aranofsky is the mind behind The Wrestler, The Fountain and Requiem for a Dream. Of those three, I’ve only seen Requiem, and felt like it was one of those movies that …
Okay, just want to get out there that oral sex, both giving and receiving, is a source of great pleasure for me and millions of women all over the world. The idea that oral stimulation is gross or wrong or whatever is just so far off my radar screen it’s ridiculous (unlike Paris Hilton, I’m not a hypocrite).
Oral sex is increasingly common for young women to partake in, both in addition to and as an alternative of intercourse. Researchers out of the University of Alberta recently conducted a study on oral sex (must have been a lot of fun), concluding that it’s unquestionably part of what researcher Brea Malacad refers to as “the sexual revolution of the 21st century.”
Anyway, an interesting conclusion to be drawn from Malacad’s work here is that researchers, sex educators, and safe-sex marketers need to get on the cunnilingus caboose. The fellatio freeway. Route 69. Whatever.
According to a study completed by researcher Dr. Colin Hendrie from the University of Leeds in the UK, the practice of kissing dates back to historical times not so much as a courting effort, but as a function to possibly desensitize a woman against the Cytomegalovirus germ.
Sounds lovely. Mama wasn’t lying when she said that it wasn’t just babies that boys could give you.
The bug is allegedly dangerous during pregnancy and allows the woman in question to develop an immunity to the germ by incubating itself and offering protection in later months of pregnancy. While male to female kissing generally likens the woman’s immune system each and every time a kiss is swapped, no matter the amount of kissing partners, the study research proves that kissing the same individual over a period of six months offers improved protection against the Cytomegalovirus germ.
As the “germ” remains in the woman’s system throughout the duration of the relationship, the woman’s immunity to the germ and other germs heightens, thus proving men useful to women in building her immune system.
