Study shows that even male animals lie to get sex…

The full study is published in the journal The American Naturalist.

A study of topi antelopes in Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve Park reveals that male antelopes deceive females in order to increase their chances of mating. Scientists from the University of Liverpool discovered that males snort and look intently ahead if an ovulating female starts to leave its territory. These signaling behaviors falsely indicate that a predator is nearby and suggest that the female should remain in close vicinity for protection. According to researchers, this increases the likelihood of mating for the lying males.

“Our study showed that males quite frequently pull this trick on the females in heat and one might ask why females keep responding to alarms at all. The answer seems to be that females are better off erring on the side of caution, because failing to react to a true alarm could easily mean death in a place like the Masai Mara where it is full of predators,” explains Dr Jakob Bro-Jorgensen.

Bishop of Tenerife blames child abuse on the children
Bernando Álvarez said that there are 13 year olds who are wanting to be abused, and ‘if you are careless they will provoke you’
There is outrage in parts of Spanish society following declarations made over Christmas from the Bishop of Tenerife, Bernardo Álvarez.
His comments were that there are youngsters who want to be abused, and he compared that abuse to homosexuality, describing them both as prejudicial to society. He said that on occasions the abuse happened because the there are children who consent to it.

‘There are 13 year old adolescents who are under age and who are perfectly in agreement with, and what’s more wanting it, and if you are careless they will even provoke you’, he said.
A later statement from the Bishop’s residence on Tenerife explained that the Bishop did not intend to imply that ‘an event as condemnable as the abuse of youngsters’ could be justified.

Here’s a Tuesday Morning Housecleaning report for my Lady Readers…

This from CBS:

Since I’m unemployed, this kind of thing implies a future possibility. Since I am also outrageously overweight, it is not likely.

I found this over at Carnal Nation (enter with care if you are edgy about sites dealing with sex in America.)

Ironic news for the day after Valentine’s Day…

Why you should never steal a condom in Thailand… courtesy of the Chicago Tribune:

A Swedish man vacationing in Thailand was so excited about the potential for a sexual encounter that he forgot to pay for the condom he had rushed to a nearby drug store to purchase. After being badly beaten by the store’s clerks, the 20-year-old was arrested and faced a five-year sentence in a nation known for its harsh justice. On what specific Thai island did this costly crime of passion occur? Phuket, of course.

Study: McCain Voters Lost Testosterone
Young men who voted for John McCain lost more than a presidential election last November. A study says their testosterone level plummeted.

As polls closed on election night, researchers at Duke University and the University of Michigan had 183 men and women chew gum and spit into test tubes and analyzed their hormones.

A few hours later, as Barack Obama supporters began celebrating, they tested hormone levels again, and then later, at two more intervals.

Men who voted for Obama maintained stable testosterone levels, while men who voted for McCain saw those levels drop more than 25 percent.

“What this study shows us is how stress and outside stimulus influences our physiology,” said Duke University spokesman Karl Leif Bates.
We’ve tested men playing video games, and we’ve found the same temporary drop or rise in testosterone,” Bates said. “We’re soon going to repeat this test at a Duke-UNC game.”

A Quote for the End of the Week

From Esquire

“Your primary objective must be to make her very, very, very happy. Because it is easy to make you happy. You can do that all by yourself–even with one hand tied behind your back.”

Men are so easy to define.

Bill’s Favorite Quote for the Week:

This was from Chris Kelly who is a writer for Real Time with Bill Maher:

Hemingway said that the problem with Henry Miller was that he got laid in the afternoon once and thought he invented it. Governor Mark Sanford got laid in Argentina two weeks ago and the way he continues to go on about it, you’d think he cracked cold fusion. The man won’t shut up. If Henry Miller talked about his sex life as much as Governor Mark Sanford talks about his sex life, people would have started thinking he was some kind of perv.

And that’s the best summary I have seen of the Sanford situation.

The Humor Of History

This quote from the Washington Post in 1999:

“Christian politicians and evangelical leaders commonly follow an unspoken rule not to meet behind closed doors with women staff members or travel alone with them… John Ensign, who is running for senate in Nevada will not be alone in a car with a woman.”

— Washington Post, September 30, 1999

And now, Ensign, who is a Republican, is caught up in a sex scandal and has stepped down from his committee chair.

Isn’t life a hoot?
