Orgasm, Orgone, Or Not PDF Print E-mail
Swift
Written by Jeff Wagg   

bigoTime is running out. There are just hours left to participate. DO NOT DELAY. At 7am Eastern Standard Time today (Dec 21, 2008), you can create world peace in the comfort of your own bed, shower, or.. well wherever.

The world of the woo-woo can be harmful in many ways. From silver colloid therapy which can leave your skin blue to alternative cancer treatments that can leave you dead, unfounded beliefs are often best left ignored. However, it has been brought to my attention by The Sex Tech that a movement is afoot with the peculiar belief that a certain physiological response will bring about world peace. And while I don’t actually believe that, I can’t think of a reason not to go along.

She is, of course, referring to the Global Orgasm For Peace, a project by Donna Sheehan and Paul Reffell. The Sex Tech says:

So, what is having an orgasm going to do in order to bring world peace according to the Global Orgasm for Peace?

•    lower birth rates

•    reduce dependence on "stuff"

•    create more harmony amongst:

•    sexes

•    races

•    species

•    the rest of the world

According to their website, the creators of Global Orgasm for Peace want people to practice 'conscious intent' in order to bring peace to the world. To support their claims that this works, they claim that scientific studies, including studies with Random Event Generators, support the idea that positive energy from people will change the earth in such a manner as to bring peace to the world. According to the creators, Donna Sheehan and Paul Reffell in their video on the site, each individual cell of a person has energy and quantum energy runs through everything so that if there is an awareness and a conscious intent to change things, then focusing on that during orgasm could lead to change.

To me, these all sound like good things. I mean.. why the hell not? However, The Sex Tech has found some very good reasons not to participate in this project:

I see the efforts of Donna Sheehan and Paul Reffell as not only misinformed but also dishonest and harmful. Their site not only spreads information that is untrue, but they are also conning people out of money for a book that reinforces sexist attitudes. They are guiding people to do something far less productive toward bringing on world peace than so many other activities that we have available to us that might actually make a difference. Now, I'm not one to discourage orgasms - orgasms are healthy and we need them as humans. However, orgasms are not going to bring world peace in the manner that Sheehan and Reffell claim they will.

Ahh, there's a book to buy. Perhaps their "intent" is less than pure. And dammit, they use the "Q" word. That's "quantum" for the unitiatied. If you find a site that says "quantum" and "intent" on it, you can be fairly certain there's woo-woo about.

I’ll let your read her full report, and yes, as you may have guessed, the site contains sexual content.

I’m sure Wilhelm Reich would approve of this project, though he’d want you to perform in a box of some sort and save your orgone energy for the questionable practice of cloud busting.

I have a better idea though. I suggest you elicit this physiological response at whatever opportune and appropriate moment you choose. I assure you blindness, hairy palms and a diminishing of your vital fluids will not afflict you. World peace? Well, you’ll have a moment’s peace for yourself, and if everyone had more realistic attitudes towards sex and self-pleasure, there just might be more peace in the world as well.

I'll stick to *praying* for world peace.

I know, I know....man has been praying for it for thousands of years, and despite the great power of unified prayer, it has not yet come to pass. BUT--maybe this is the year.

Keeping fingers crossed.

Phew, not much ogone ernergy left after last night. We forgot about the box.
Still, it comforts me to think we've done our best for world peace.

I like the basic idea. If all those stick in the muds would regard sex as natural and healthy, and not a sinful act best performed once every nine or ten months in the dark and under the supervision of a clergyman, the world could be a better place.

Hmmm?

So how does working towards world peace *wink* *wink* *nudge* *nudge* help with interspecies harmony, and if it does isn't that against the law? Now with that thought on your mind isn't lowering birth rates counter productive towards continuation of your genetic line?

practical results?
written by Trish, December 21, 2008
If increased sex creates energy that can be harnassed for the goal of world peace, maybe we can get the FCC to stop scaring all the cable stations into blurring/beeping all the good bits of our fav shows.

One fly in the ointment [or lube], orgasms are not generally associated with lower birth rates...

Wow. I mean, just, wow.

Look, if you're not getting lucky, this isn't going to help you. I'd recommend a good mouthwash, and perhaps a little more attention to other areas of personal hygiene. And a better pickup line.
