Ivan’s Site of the Week

Following on from our recent discovery of treehugger porn in Norway, we find another group that is adding new dimensions to the concept of “single-issue” politics - masturbateforpeace.com.

As with the environmentalists of fuckforforest, the creators of masturbateforpeace rely on constant self-abuse to purge any aggressive instincts from their audience, so spreading peace, love, and crumpled kleenex in all directions.

While there’s probably some merit to the logic, I can’t help feeling that they’re scraping the bottom of the barrel for an angle here. Why not find a like-minded partner to achieve the same flushed and sticky end, like their eco-friendly counterparts at fuckforforest? “Make love not war” is hardly a new idea. But I dare say that, given a target audience of webby nerds, the authors have a shrewd idea of the social limitations of their clientele.

It’s just another sad reflection on the precipitate decline of community spirit in modern human interaction. The internet has a lot to answer for.


A public service announcement from masturbateforpeace.com, yesterday. Not sure what a cooter is, but I suppose you’ve got a 50/50 chance of guessing right…

There are some very disturbing masturbation horror stories on that site.

Really? Hadn't looked. Maybe we should hold a little contest of our own - a story contest that is, not a milk race. Anyone want to share?

Thanks but no, thanks, Ivan. I won't let myself be walked down that path. :-)

Other people have had the idea of having people play with themselves in the name of racial harmony. Yeah, it's true. I guess they thought there's an upside to masturbation making you blind -- then you're also color-blind.

What will happen, if everybody dors now for peace, what he liked most anyway? Nothing different at all, except perhaps that it's now done without feeliongs of guilt. And, having said that, this might be the really bad thing!

Sorry for the typos, got a new keyboard!

Well, Des, masturbating while walking down a path is the kind of thing that's pretty much guaranteed to end in tears.

And TP, if that was all it took to turn sin guilt-free for me, I'd never leave the house. Except to go looting. Unfortunately I have been cursed with an overdeveloped ethics muscle. Perhaps surgery might help?

I imagine that the Nobel Peace prize might not be considered all that great an honour, if this idea takes ahem hold.
