O boy!

I just got a facebook invitation from one of my students for this event:

"Global Orgasm for Peace Day: The mission of the Global Orgasm is to effect change in the energy field of the Earth through input of the largest possible surge of human energy. The intent is that the participants concentrate any thoughts during and after orgasm on peace. The combination of high- energy orgasmic energy combined with mindful intention may have a much greater effect than previous mass meditations and prayers."

I thought this had to be a hoax, but it appears to be the conceptual love-child of a pair of aging 60’s hipsters (it’s the only kind of conception resulting from sexual relations by such types) whose main website is http://www.globalorgasm.org/.

Here’s a snippet from their home page:

“The intent is that the participants concentrate any thoughts during and after orgasm on peace. The combination of high- energy orgasmic energy combined with mindful intention may have a much greater effect than previous mass meditations and prayers.”

And lest you think this is just a bunch of New Age mumbo-jumbo, there is a link to assure you that Quantum Field Theory shows that this project is based on the latest greatest science. After all, these guys aren’t anti-science like fundamentalists!

The event is supposed to come off on Solstice Day. Indeed, the website has a clock that counts it down to the second.

Now *that’s* romance! I’m supposed to be with the lover of my choice “ready to go” watching that clock and thinking about the fact that “there are two more US fleets heading for the Persian Gulf with anti- submarine equipment that can only be for use against Iran.” Maybe they should try this again on Saint Valentine’s Day!

Not directly related to the substance of this post, but I have to say: you gotta hand it to a student who has the courage to ask his professor/TA (whichever you were for this student) to join him for an orgasm!
