A Woman’s History of Vaginal Orgasm is Discernible from Her Walk.

Introduction. Research has demonstrated the association between vaginal orgasm and better mental health. Some theories of psychotherapy assert a link between muscle blocks and disturbances of both character and sexual function. In Functional-Sexological therapy, one focus of treatment is amelioration of voluntary movement. The present study examines the association of general everyday body movement with history of vaginal orgasm.
Aim. The objective was to determine if appropriately trained sexologists could infer women’s history of vaginal orgasm from observing only their gait.
Methods. Women with known histories of either vaginal orgasm or vaginal anorgasmia were videotaped walking on the street, and their orgasmic status was judged by sexologists blind to their history.
Main Outcome Measure. The concordance between having had orgasms triggered by penile-vaginal intercourse (not orgasm from direct clitoral stimulation) and raters’ inferences of vaginal orgasm history based on observation of the woman’s walk was the main outcome measure.
Results. In the sample of healthy young Belgian women (half of whom were vaginally orgasmic), history of vaginal orgasm (triggered solely by penile-vaginal intercourse) was diagnosable at far better than chance level (81.25% correct, Fisher’s Exact Test P < 0.05) by appropriately trained sexologists. Clitoral orgasm history was unrelated to both ratings and to vaginal orgasm history. Exploratory analyses suggest that greater pelvic and vertebral rotation and stride length might be characteristic of the gait of women who have experienced vaginal orgasm (r = 0.51, P < 0.05).
Conclusions. The discerning observer may infer women’s experience of vaginal orgasm from a gait that comprises fluidity, energy, sensuality, freedom, and absence of both flaccid and locked muscles. Results are discussed with regard to previous research on gait, the effect of the musculature on sexual function, the special nature of vaginal orgasm, and implications for sexual therapy.

The US dollar rose above the VND18,000 mark for the first time on the black market Wednesday.
It rose from VND17,600 Wednesday to close at an all-time high of VND18,020.
The rise in the value of the greenback in recent days has been hurting importers.
A representative from a Ho Chi Minh City computer distributor said he went to a private bank this week to buy US$5,400 to pay for his firm’s shipments imported from the US
But the bank refused to sell dollars to him, reportedly because it too bought greenback from the black market, and, instead, asked him to buy euro at the rate of VND27,058 and convert it into dollars.
“We had to buy dollars at the rate of VND17,350, VND1,000 higher than the bank rate,” the man told Thanh Nien Wednesday.
“Why does a domestic importer have to pay its US partner in euro? The central bank should investigate.”
He also said the bank should mention the rate of VND17,350 on the document so that his company could deduct it from taxable income and mention the exchange rate on the price tag.
Most computer shops carry dollar and exchange rates on price tags.
Analysts said the stronger dollar is also affecting the gold market since global gold prices are converted into market prices in Vietnam based on the dollar’s black market rates.
The black market rate for the dollar followed a similar pattern in Hanoi Wednesday.
At 11 a.m., the rates at the two largest gold shops in the capital, Bao Tin Minh Chau and Quoc Trinh rose respectively to VND17,750/18,000 and VND17,810/17,950.
The buying prices at some other shops see-sawed, rising to VND17,750 per dollar in the morning before slipping to VND17,000.
A gold shop on Hanoi’s Tran Nhan Tong Street said speculators booked profits by selling dollars, causing the price of the greenback to slide.
Nguyen Van Giau, Governor of the State Bank of Vietnam, said, “We have watched the market’s movements for a week and can be sure that speculation caused the dollar to fluctuate. We will continue to keep a close watch and announce timely measures.”
Banks, however, continued to maintain a rate of around VND16,220.
The central bank set the rate Wednesday at VND16,268, while the daily trading band is one percent

Some people think Japanese eat a lot of strange things. These cows in Hokkaido have every chew and swallow monitored for science.
Then they are, of course, eaten raw.
Pass the wasabi.

Here is a test of reaction times and racial prejudice from the University of Chicago. I didn’t think this picture was necessary, but I’m sure it was scientific.
I had just seen this lovely street scene from Chicago on Google Maps and was otherwise occupied with a (hippy)crack pipe, in a ready state for wanton wasting of motherfuckers for dressing bad, but my results were:
Your Score: 225
Average reaction time:
I didn’t see any gooks. I would have killed him. i hate them and i always will.
Next time I want to play Arabs vs Jews.

Okay, thanks for your $0.02 on international relations, Mr. President. But how do you feel about Persians?

of mellows peep
Now, Analog speaks
Its just a hobby
Talking all the time, A media lobby
Bustin your teeth with my elbow
to the words that follow
Like barry bonds ejaculaion
Albert Belle’s MVP discrimination’s
Disguised in Mellows Rhyming
But everyone sees you Lying
Analog was busy for a moment
Toten glooks, shooting folks,
Mountains from a fog
Is that fucking analog
hiroshma, Aushwitz, abugayrape
Your raps have timing
Of war criming
words like day old whores
Nutz Busted, so many holes
So listen closely
Because in the same rhyme
In due time?
Analog will open doors
Windows of perception
On mellow’s genetic infection
His Mama’s imperfections
you are delirious
to bust a rhyme
for all the stiens
on the a list
with a twist
a right to exist
unless my brother’s brother
and his mother
not a race
to live together
you’ve got the moves
to stop this flow
NYC Laawyer, in your mamas foyer, Brandeis Jew Boy
how your thoughts
an endless tale
a river rises
carrying the chosen people
(your mother blows joe libermam
her suck, gets fucked on his third circumscison)
but they cant stop ranten
smoking a pipe
can’t even concede
which do not
will never ever be one
because even liberal jews
worlds like never without tenses
you can have it
the jewish race
you will face
an end of time
an end of rhymes
a final solution
