It's sexual health day again.

Yawn. Here's a picture from last year:



One thing about blogging is you remember these annual events. Oh, yeah, that came up again. I'm not photographing it again.

I must say the picture I'm reposting here is what came to mind when I heard Jane Fonda describing the entryway to her loft.

I think sexual health days can pretty much always be summed up in one word:

"Classy."

I didn't say the word had to be sincere.

At my college the event planners try to make everything as trivial as possible, which is more annoying than it is accomplishing anything.

That's one event I think I'd care to forget!

PS: I made you some extra dough while visting here, I finally saw a Blog Ad that I was interested enough to click on.....New Mexico Artists. Don't spend this windfall foolishly! :>]

I've posted over 3,000 pictures to Flickr and Mac.com in the 14 months I've had my digital camera, and I consider this one the least sexy image.

It's just so boring. Not even vulgar any more. Just as if people haven't been humorlessly discovering sexual health (good!) and being against repression (bad!) for a hundred years. God, as if at this point there haven't been generations of ultra-earnest social workers exclaiming over our liberation from repressive social conventions and contraining sexual mores. This is the abyssal plains of tedium now. Can you imagine Lady Macbeth or the Wife of Bath apostrophizing the audience every line or two, to make sure we don't overlook their vaginae and confound them with people? Oscar Wilde prefacing each paragraph with a little note to the reader to be sure we don't forget even for a moment his 'orientation' while reading his ideas and his wit? It would be so much easier to put up with this drivel if we weren't expected to be surprised and shocked at how bold, explicit, and socially advanced it all is.

When a woman has a rash that bad chlamydia is the least of her problems.

Even so, her problems are as nothing compared to the man whose unit is shaped like one of those squared-off doorways that have Jane Fonda all bothered. That mohel will never work in this town again.

Paul: Funny. Someone wrote something similar in the email: 'We all know *male* genitalia are so "squared-off." Lord knows that if my husband rolls over on me in the middle of the night, all those sharp corners are just murder.'

Ann and Paul: At night, I'm not worried so much about The Guy's genitalia as I am his Elbows or Knees - both of which form some nasty right-angles. (ouch)

The thing is, the rectilinear=masculine imagery that Fonda started out with is perfectly all right. If she hadn't lost the thread and gotten genitalia mixed up in it she'd have ended up with a round hobbit-door, and none of us would have cause to say anything more snide than "if anyone can afford the fancy joinery it's Jane Fonda".

That picture reminds me of a girl I dated in college once.

Thanks folks! I'll be here all week!
