MRI Reveals Organs During Sex
Live Science ^ | 21 August 2009 10:50 am ET | Live Science Staff

Posted on 09/05/2009 7:18:24 PM PDT by Candor7

Submitted by LiveScience Staff This video (scroll down) is making the rounds the past week on respected science sites like New Scientist as well as geek blogs and YouTube. It's based on not-brand-new research that involved a video that is said to be of interest to scientists who study these things and, perhaps, to anyone in the general public interested in sexual anatomy. Dr. Pek Van Andel and colleagues, in 1999, made the first MRI images of male and female sex organs while couples were having sex under, as it was put, cloistered conditions. MRI machines are said by some to be much like coffins. The purpose of the "observational study," as explained in the British Medical Journal in 1999: "To find out whether taking images of the male and female genitals during coitus is feasible and to find out whether former and current ideas about the anatomy during sexual intercourse and during female sexual arousal are based on assumptions or on facts." In all, 13 experiments were performed with eight couples and three single women. The results, as stated in the journal: "The images obtained showed that during intercourse in the "missionary position" the penis has the shape of a boomerang and 1/3 of its length consists of the root of the penis. During female sexual arousal without intercourse the uterus was raised and the anterior vaginal wall lengthened. The size of the uterus did not increase during sexual arousal." ......

Only if you work in a hospital...or maybe for a manufacturer of fine adult latex novelties.

My gracious, that's an awful lot of verbiage. What it means is: (1) "Can we get pix?" and (2) "Whoa - what do they look like?" To be honest, the mechanics of this fundamental physical procedure aren't really in a great deal of doubt, unless you happen to be a scientist who needs a really great excuse for getting laid on camera. Of course it ended up on Youtube. Where else would it be?

I just had an MRI. Unpleasant experience on the whole. That being said there was not enough room for me. The thought that they think two adults good somehow be positioned to fit in the torpedo tube is laughable regardless of the amount of Vaseline used. The further suggestion that they then perform some kind of sex act, Hell, any kind of act which could remotely be associated with sexual behavior “strains the limits of disbelief.” And I had my MRI done in a Siemens “Big Bore” which is about 40% larger than a standard MRI.

Organs during sex?

Last thing I want to hear is some guy playing "Take me out to the Ballgame" on a Wurlitzer like the 7th inning stretch while I'm making whoopee.

Something with a nice rhythm is good though.

The MRI’s are like coffins. I could never go into a “closed MRI” (which are the coffins). They have several places to go for “open” MRI’s” which are quite nice...never would have thought of it as a place to have sex though.

Back in the 1980's there was a government funded study to determine if MONKEYS enjoyed sex, and whether they enjoyed it more with a partner, or just masturbation. Truly!!!! I recall specifically, because I wrote a poem about it for a joke.

Now, how they determined if the monkeys liked it or not, I don't know. Who talks monkey talk?

But, in some scheme of things, some insane scientists determined, and convinced our government that this information was important. Abba, dabba, dabba, dabba, said the chimpy to the monk.

I see this was done in Germany.

One can imagine the pillow-talk:

“Ach, Ilse, you ist so hot!”

“Ah, Gunter, vas you in der Navy in der missile u-boat?”

“Um, no... why?”

“Vell, I could not help but notice, ist ein Boomer Vang!”

Try Bruce Cockburn's (sorry, that's *really* his name) Sahara Gold or Lovers in a Dangerous Time from his 1984 album Stealing Fire.

(Warning: he's a Canadian Commie lib, but still a gifted musician. Definite *BARF* alert on most of the other songs on the album.)

Cheers!

...and that makes me happy I was only a technician.

"You" got to plan, interpret, and publish; but "I" got to do the setting up, running, observing, and recording.

Just glad neither of us were the cleaning lady.
