Random sexual culture links

2008-07-14 16:21:39.135302+00 by Dan Lyke 3 comments

Figleaf points out that the success numbers on vasectomy reversals may be biased and that vasectomies are probably actually a good mechanism for young men to use for temporary birth control.

Don Mitchell looks at the biology of sexual "morality", why outrage against public figures and sexual scandals might be something rooted deep in our simian hind-brains. (Thanks to Brainwagon for the link to Don Mitchell's Blog)

I need to dig up the post I made on The Well from 1993 when I had my vasectomy done. I'll probably revisit that when I post about my reversal (November 2007) but that won't come until I've confirmed it's success.

In particular, when we see or imagine other's having sex, it is upsetting.

But then … how does this explain porn?

I think what Don Mitchell is proposing is that that's the reason porn is loathed as a cultural phenomenon, but, yeah, I'm not sure his hypothesis makes complete sense. Still processing the notion.
