Outrageous Sex Tips from my own COSMOS

johnskylar:

Recently I read this article about hilarious sex tips from Cosmopolitan magazine.  It was pretty funny!

So I said to myself, “Self, you too have COSMOS.  You should look inside it for outrageous sex tips.”

And I did.  Here’s a top 10:

  1. “Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.” 
    Ten inches, you say?  Prove it.
  2. “We are a way for the cosmos to know itself.” 
    You know, in the Biblical sense.
  3. “Other things being equal, it is better to be smart than to be stupid.”
    Stupid in bed is like stupid with a chainsaw.  It’ll turn off when you make a mistake, and it won’t be safe OR fun.  Protect yourself; hit on a scientist!
  4. If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe.” American Pie would’ve been much better if it had been that way.  I’m down.
  5. For a long time the human instinct to understand was thwarted by facile religious explanations.” Facile: superficial, simplistic, quick, and easy.  Had to look that one up.  Apparently that’s religious sex for ya.  Science: complex, comprehensive, and, ah…deep.  Well, I think we have a winner.
  6. The suppression of uncomfortable ideas may be common in religion and politics, but it is not the path to knowledge…”
    For a list of uncomfortable ideas to try, go here.
  7. Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere.”
    I think we can all imagine how to put THIS to good use in bed.
  8. But those with the courage to explore the weave and structure of the Cosmos, even where it differs profoundly from their wishes and prejudices, will penetrate its deepest mysteries.”
    It takes courage to penetrate those deep mysteries!
  9. “Where we have strong emotions, we’re liable to fool ourselves.” Remember that part about extraordinary claims?  Don’t forget in the heat of the moment!
  10. It is probably here that the word ‘cosmopolitan’ realized its true meaning…”
    See.  True meaning of Cosmopolitan.  Sexy science, not fashion magazine.  Told you.

John Skylar, you are a prince among men.

Please read this very good article about sex ed in the USA.

In its breadth, depth and frank embrace of sexuality as, what Vernacchio calls, a “force for good” — even for teenagers — this sex-ed class may well be the only one of its kind in the United States. “There is abstinence-only sex education, and there’s abstinence-based sex ed,” said Leslie Kantor, vice president of education for Planned Parenthood Federation of America. “There’s almost nothing else left in public schools.”

Across the country, the approach ranges from abstinence until marriage is the only acceptable choice, contraceptives don’t work and premarital sex is physically and emotionally harmful, to abstinence is usually best, but if you must have sex, here are some ways to protect yourself from pregnancy and disease. The latter has been called “disaster prevention” education by sex educators who wish they could teach more; a dramatic example of the former comes in a video called “No Second Chances,” which has been used in abstinence-only courses. In it, a student asks a school nurse, “What if I want to have sex before I get married?” To which the nurse replies, “Well, I guess you’ll just have to be prepared to die.”

How did sex ed work in 1930s Britain? A pensioner recounts.
