Brazilian Town Declares 'Orgasm Day'Oh I am sure that will go over well. Not.
RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil(AP) Sex rarely makes the news in Brazil's conservative Northeast until a small town declared an official Orgasm Day on Monday. Espertantina Mayor Felipe Santolia endorsed the May 9 holiday, which he said was intended to improve relationships between married couples.
"We're celebrating orgasm in all its senses. There's even a panel discussion on premature ejaculation."
"But from what I've seen, women have more trouble achieving orgasm than men, especially in marriage," Santolia said by telephone from Esperantina, 1,300 miles (2,100 kilometers) north of Rio de Janeiro. Santolia said the remote town of 38,000 people has been unofficially celebrating orgasm day for years, but that the town's former mayor had vetoed a bill making it an official municipal holiday.
Wow the mayor has seen that married women have trouble achieving the big O. What a guy! How progressive. I like him.
And why is it that many (but not all) married women have trouble reaching orgasm with their husbands but not the handy man? Could it be that after a while, married or commited men just don't give a shit? You know, like when you're first going out, they are all about pleasuring the woman "I want you to come first, darling" and then it goes downhill from there "Would you hurry up so I can watch the game?" Should women just keep getting new lovers every year or so? Just to keep the male population on their toes?
The city council passed a law Saturday creating the holiday. Santolia, who took office earlier this year, said he would sign the bill later Monday.A holiday! Why Pat Robertson would have a stroke at the pulpit if anyone in Murka would suggest a thing like this. Someone should suggest it. I'm sick of him.
Orgasm Day celebrations include a series of panel discussions by sexologists from across Brazil and a presentation of Eve Ensler's play "The Vagina Monologues." Santolia said the idea of celebrating Orgasm Day at first created a scandal in this poor region, known for its religious fervor. But he said residents gradually residents warmed to the idea.
"I've seen scientific studies that show when a woman is unloved, when her husband can't bring her to orgasm, it affects all aspects of her life, her relationships with her children, at home, with the city and at work," Santolia said.
Hmm interesting. I had no idea that my whole female being and the well being of the community is based on my orgasms. My mother forgot to tell me that. But I like the concept.
Where do I sign up?
