Calif. couple calls for orgasm for peace

Calif. couple calls for orgasm for peace
By MARCUS WOHLSEN, Associated Press Writer Sun Nov 19, 9:05 PM ET



SAN FRANCISCO - Two peace activists have planned a massive anti-war demonstration for the first day of winter.

But they don't want you marching in the streets. They'd much rather you just stay home.

The Global Orgasm for Peace was conceived by Donna Sheehan, 76, and Paul Reffell, 55, whose immodest 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, no relation to anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan, brought together nearly 50 women in 2002 who stripped naked and spelled out the word "Peace."

The stunt spawned a mini-movement called Baring Witness that led to similar unclothed demonstrations worldwide.

The couple have studied evolutionary psychology and believe that war is mainly an outgrowth of men trying to impress potential mates, a case of "my missile is bigger than your missile," as Reffell put it.

By promoting what they hope to be a synchronized global orgasm, they hope to get people to channel their sexual energy into something more positive.

The couple said interest appears strong, with 26,000 hits a day to their Web site, http://www.globalorgasm.org.

"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."

Whew!! this sounds mighty dangerous.
Six billion orgasms in one day could wipe out all humanity.
Ohhh...but what a way to go!

Re: Calif. couple calls for orgasm for peace

make love and not war uh?
Great idea I think!

Laissez nous créer, une arme en amour, une bombe à lumière, un fusil à fleur, une vie sans barrière.
Laissez nous rêver, d’un enfant président, d’un roi sans couronne, d’un Jésus indien, d’un Dieu qui pardonne, même ceux qui l’oublient.

Re: Calif. couple calls for orgasm for peace

If anything, wouldn't that lead to more "my missile is bigger than your missile" arguments?

What a terrific way to gather and direct collective positive energy on the first day after the winter equinox.

There is nothing more beautiful than Evonne Goolagong in full flight moving across a tennis court.

Re: Calif. couple calls for orgasm for peace

Now there are six billion people on this planet. We surely don't want an increase of 50% in a year's time

So, do the right thing, and wank yourself crazy
