Oh God!

The Madonna of Orgasm Church (Orgasmens Madonnas kyrka) took an important step toward official recognition in Sweden last week when a court ruled it had the right to be registered as a faith community.

According to the Skånska Dagbladet newspaper, the idea for the church came to Bebeacua, who is the church’s self-appointed cardinal, after a painting of his entitled 'The Madonna of Orgasm' sparked protests requiring police action during the 1992 World’s Fair in Seville, Spain.

“The orgasm is God, the orgasm should be worshiped,” Bebeacua told the Kvällsposten newspaper.

“The orgasm is the ultimate feeling of lust, it shouldn’t be limited to ejaculation. You can reach it through art or by looking at a landscape and thinking ‘Wow!’”

According to Bebeacua, the church has a few hundred followers, and he hopes that registering the Madonna of Orgasm Church will get more people to consider the orgasm as God.

The church only has priestesses and its scriptures are called the Catechism of the Orgasm. The only gospel preached is the gospel of sex.

“It’s so we do what we know is right and good,” Bebeacua told Kvällsposten


I'm generally not into trannies, so I wasn't going to post this Fleshbot gallery of t-girls but then I remembered how hot we all thought Kimber James was when I posted about her a few weeks back.

Unfortunately the original Kimber James gallery only had topless and not bottomless shots of her, so we were all left wondering what, exactly, this 90 pound size 0 girl actually had underneath her panties.

Since her photo in this gallery answers the question, I figured it's worth posting.

The other girls in the gallery back up my general feeling that t-girls do nothing for me, but I still think Kimber James is hot - even though I do wish she had a vagina.

So, what do you guys think? What is it about Kimber that so obviously registers for straight guys that the other t-girls seem to lack.

I mean she's the first t-girl offered a Playboy contract and the first to ever be featured in mainstream straight porn - so I'm not the only one who feels like she's somehow "different" from the typical chick with dick.

Writer's Block: Meat Cake

Happy birthday, Humane Society of the United States! A staffer here at LJ loves her dog so much that she made her a meat cake for her birthday. What's the most elaborate (and possibly not justifiable to non-pet owners) thing you've ever done for your pet?

Talk to her and then respond in "cat voice" with what I think she'd want to say if she could talk.

Also, when I get mad at her I'll say stuff like "Way 47" - because we all know there is more than one way to skin a cat. Then I'll have her respond "No daddy! Nothing is worse than Way 47." So, I'll cave and tell her "Ok! Way 45 instead!"

When she pees on something, I'll often tell her scary stories about the Vietnamese restaurant down the street.

Sometimes, I've also threatened to take her to the Used Cats Store and trade her in on a better model.

On Twilight

After reading tons of stuff about Twilight this week, from plot summaries to reviews to the Wikipedia entry to entries on Jezebel, Gawker, Drudge, etc... one thought occurs to me.

Isn't it great that there is a series of books designed for Mormon and Christian girls to read that acknowledges teenage female sexuality and desire.

I mean, seriously, in so many of these books it's the boy who wants to go all the way and the girl who uses her religious values to put a stop to his advances.

In these books, it's the girl who wants to go all the way and the boy who is resisting (because it's fairly obvious that him not wanting to get "too close" because he might "lose control" and bite her is a metaphor for the male trying to lead an abstinence lifestyle and not get tempted to penetrate things other than her neck.)

Also, isn't it awesome that she's not portrayed as a slut for wanting to get "too close" to him. From my memory in these types of books it's usually the minor female characters who have a sex drive and not the main female character - because she has to be pure as snow.

Sure, the series waits until the couple is married before they have sex - but that's not an awful thing really. It's not the choice most of us have made, but it is a valid choice for a couple to make if they want to.

Anyway, I think that this is maybe a step in the right direction - literature for teenage girls that admits that they can have naughty desires without feeling bad about them is a good thing, even if it comes from the religious right.


I was just talking to my stepmom who agreed to do a $6,000 job for a client a couple of months ago. The job has been done for weeks and she was bitching that the dude hasn't paid her.

While talking to her I discovered that:

She never asked the dude to sign a contract.
She didn't get a deposit on the job.
She's only ever dealt with this guy over the phone - never in person.
He lives on the other side of the continent.

I can't fucking believe she's been working as a freelance consultant for several years and has never gotten a client to sign a contract or give her a deposit. She didn't even know freelance contracts existed (which I guess means that when she was running newspapers she didn't offer contracts to her freelancers.)

So, I sent her over some boilerplate contracts for her to have clients sign in the future.

This gets on my nerves - because she's able to charge much more money for jobs than I am, simply because s he ran major newspapers for years, so people assume she's more professional than someone like I am. Even though she knows next to nothing about business, blows deadlines and doesn't even understand how to negotiate fees or payment schedules.

When, in reality, I treat this like a business, get deposits from everyone, document every step of the job and almost never miss a deadline.

But, since I've never had "Executive Editor" or "Managing Editor" as my title, I'll never get the level of respect she does.

Fuck me.
