Kinsey

I just saw the new movie about Alfred Kinsey and I highly recommend seeing it. Heh heh, although it's not a good date movie (trust me, you won't want to get it on with your date aferwards), the film gives a great account of how in the dark the American public was about sex.

It's really sad how misinformed people were about sex (and sad to realize how even today, many folks are still misinformed), and the film does a great service in reminding us that one of Kinsey's findings was that there is a wide range of human sexual behavior. There problem is that institutions (the church, mainstream media, parents, magazines, etc) put out the notion that there is a certain standard or norm for sexual behavior and everyone should behave the same way, when in fact, humans are very diverse when it comes to sexual behavior.

Agreed good movie, but you wouldnt believe how many people dont think so, although, like Fahrenheit 911 these people probably will never see it. I wrote blog about right after it came out, check it out: http://toadthoughts.blogspot.com/2004/12/kinsey-sex.html

Humans are very diverse when it comes to sexual behaviour.

When are we going to see a film about Kimberly Quinn a randy American women setting her own individual sexual standards. She has gone through London's Metropolitan elite like a hot knife through butter, not only bringing down a government minister but ruined Simon Hoggart, (Guardian journalist)well they are all a bunch of hypocritical old farts anyway.

Rumoured to have had four men on the go as well as her husband, the fourth man at present unidentified. What a woman!
