The Really Big "O"

If you're looking for a way to contribute to world peace, I have some very good news via the Associated Press. On December 22, you can join people worldwide for the first ever global orgasm.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Two peace activists have planned a massive anti-war demonstration for the first day of winter. But they don't want marching in the streets. They'd much rather protesters just stay home.

The Global Orgasm for Peace was conceived by Donna Sheehan, 76, and Paul Reffell, 55, whose goal is for everyone in the world to have an orgasm Dec. 22 while focusing on world peace. "The orgasm gives out an incredible feeling of peace during it and after it," Reffell said Sunday. "Your mind is like a blank. It's like a meditative state. And mass meditations have been shown to make a change."

The couple are no strangers to sex and social activism. Sheehan brought together nearly 50 women in 2002 who stripped naked and spelled out the word "Peace."


By promoting what they hope to be a synchronized global orgasm, they hope to have people channel their sexual energy into something more positive. The couple said interest appears strong, with 26,000 hits a day to their website. "The dream is to have everyone in the world (take part)," Reffell said. "And if that means laying down your gun for a few minutes, then hey, all the better."

No comment.



they hope to have people channel their sexual energy into something more positive.

Really - is there something more positive than sexual energy?

My wedding anniversary is the Winter Solstice, and my husband and I are planning to be Away from Computers, Politics, Blogs and Phones....ahem....doing our part for world peace.

I guess what they are saying

is that people should channel their sexual energy into World Peace. I think having people channel their sexual energy into whirled peas is more likely.

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

Just when middle America was getting used to being anti-war....

Along come the hippies. They make the anti-war political movement all about them and their identity and have no interest in engaging in politics in any meaningful way that has a chance of being influential.

These freaks have been sucking the air out of a meaningful and mainstream anti-war movement since the 1960s.

Fucking hippies!


Why do you hate orgasms ibatheinthebayou? :)

Do you mean to say that middle America doesn't like to do IT? Is sexuality all about hippies and not everyone else? aw shoot... I could just go on and on with this one... :) No disrespect intended ibatheinthebayou.


I would say the rest of America just finally caught up with those who opposed the war from the beginning. The only reason this would be a big deal is if the traditional media makes it one, so they can say "See, all those who oppose the war are fucking hippies!"

It seems like you've bit, hook, line, and sinker.

There are people like Jim Webb that have been against Iraq since before it started, I would doubt he qualifies as a fucking hippie.

If you don't feel like having sex for peace, then just ignore it. Don't let the right-wing media in this country run your mind.

I'm having trouble separating this post from Screwie Hoolie and Beat Generation or Defeat Copulation


There is a school of thought/metaphysics that says you can channel energy to create change. I see no reason why a little sexual celebration in honor of the idea of world peace would be a bad thing.

Fucking hippies, however, is not such a good idea, until they bathe.

Be the change you wish to see

That's what I say to myself every time I put money in a vending machine. You never really know what is going to come out until you push some buttons.


In that case, Greg, I choose to be a Susan B. Anthony dollar. Small enough to get into a lot of tight places, and just different enough to piss people off - and worth more than I look like.

OK let me get this straight

A day or orgasms for peace as the public face of the anti-war movement isn't a bad move politically?

You DON'T see this as something that would turn people off to your movement?

If you were running a campaign you WOULD promote something like this?

These kind of "activists" are more into increasing their own esteem for themselves than actually working on a strategy that has a broad enough appeal to make a difference. They are the kind of people who are always too cool to support any actual living candidates (who have had to make compromises to get elected.)

I wouldn't participate in this crap. Not because I'm a prude, but because I know that our women and men in uniform wouldn't find this respectful and supportive.

I mean really: we have people in Iraq getting blown to pieces and you're going to stage some disrespectful bullshit like this? Way out of touch. The right gets to turn around and use it to rile up their base and we get more of the same.

Calm down already....

This isn't required and no one is going to grade you on either size or preformance. If you don't want to participate, don't. It's your choice....and our choice.

PS I'm ex-military and don't find this either disrespectful or non-supportive. What I find disrespectful is an administration that says "Support the Troops" out of one side of their mouth while not providing body armor, vehicle armor or IED scramblers, who won't listen to his own Generals and continues to put our precious treasures in harms way! So if I'm going to get FUCKED, i'd rather choose MY partner!

No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.


First...not "my movement" - I am definitely against this war, but I'm not part of an organized movement; I'm an individual who acts and thinks like one. This isn't Alice's Restaurant, dude.

Second...the people who are going to be turned off by this - are going to be turned off by a lot of the things I think are ok. And that's ok. Its America. We're supposed to agree to disagree., I don't think consenting adults expressing themselves sexually for a positive purpose hurts anything or anyone, including anyone's "movement", unless its someone's back if they try some particular move they shouldn't.

It sounds like fun

"The Right" will always find something to overhype and conflate into "the face of the anti-war left". I'm not imagining that my all-American peace-loving spermies will alter the course of the war, but it's not terribly strange to imagine that concentrated mental energy can alter reality.

A bunch of people want to get off and think they're doing something helpful? Whatever. No big deal.

Scrutiny Hooligans -

Spew warning next time Screwy

A girl only keeps so many keyboards in the top of her closet. :)

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

jerk off

IMHO anyone who finds this idea distasteful can go jerk off on Dec 21st to express displeasure and honor the namesake their act will bestow upon them.

So what happens if you don't agree with this and by some quirk of fate find yourself on the verge of an orgasm on Dec 22. Will you hold back while thinking of dirty fucking hippies and world peace.....that's scary.

And it's 1,2,3,4 what are we fightin for don't ask me I don't give a dam, my next stop is vietnam.....
