Brazilian Town Declares Orgasm Day
abcnew.com ^ | 5-9-05 | ap

Posted on 05/09/2005 3:41:03 PM PDT by Rakkasan1

Sex rarely makes the news in Brazil's conservative Northeast until a small town declared an official Orgasm Day on Monday.

Espertantina Mayor Felipe Santolia endorsed the May 9 holiday, which he said was intended to improve relationships between married couples.

"We're celebrating orgasm in all its senses. There's even a panel discussion on premature ejaculation. But from what I've seen, women have more trouble achieving orgasm than men, especially in marriage," Santolia said by telephone from Esperantina, 1,300 miles (2,100 kilometers) north of Rio de Janeiro.

Santolia said the remote town of 38,000 people has been unofficially celebrating orgasm day for years, but that the town's former mayor had vetoed a bill making it an official municipal holiday.

In other news, I have decided to spend May 9 in Espertantina, Brazil.

I hear it's a lovely g-sp - um, I mean, vacation spot.

In Espartantina, be careful when someone tells you it's "Hump Day".

It's good for people to ask "what's an orgasm?" in that education in the matter is critical to normal development.

It's bad when it's the woman you've just had sex with.

I think the idea was to have orgasms, not prevent them.

Nope. That's pretty much got "Not getting any" written all over it. In big, red neon letters.

Do I hear a call for an official "Headache Day"?

"I've seen scientific studies that show when a woman is unloved, when her husband can bring her to orgasm, it affects all aspects of her life...

This sentence lost something in translation. I thought orgasm was a good thing.

Have you heard of a movie called Orgazmo!?
From the Creators of "South Park"

Plot:
Joe Young was a simple young man trying to spread the word of the Book of Mormon when he picked the wrong house to preach at! The owner, a porn director named Maxxx Orbison, tells his henchmen to kill the guy at the door who interrupted their scene, but Joe fights off the guards with great skill, which impresses Maxxx so much that he offers Joe the lead role in the movie he's making at the moment: Orgazmo, which is about a sex superhero who fights crime with his Orgazmorator and ChodaBoy, his sidekick. Joe, against his beliefs, takes the job so that he can pay for the wedding he plans for he and his fiancee, who he doesn't tell about his risque new acting job.

NC-17 - FYI

If this works the way those New York City Brown/Black Outs worked in the 70's, I predict a dearth of new Baby Brazilians in about 270 days. :)

Can't WAIT to tell DH about this one. He's out being a Manly-Man right now, splitting firewood. He "cleans up" real nice, though. ;)
