Thumbs up for "Kinsey"!
Yep - something to be proud about in Indiana - that the work done by Kinsey in researching sex was done while he was at Indiana University. Excellent film - has a heart, good characters, full frontal nudity of Peter Skarsgaard, fairly accurately reflects scientific work, and makes you realize that, in many ways, we really haven't come very far. I sure as hell know that I never saw any photos like the ones Kinsey showed in his classes on sex except in sex mags and the internet! Certainly not in school. Heck - I don't think I ever saw a photo of a fully erect penis in any sexual education classes... that's sad. That's truly sad. And did I mention male full frontal nudity? Okay, it was only onscreen for a short time, but - *G*.

And in case you missed either of these:

TTT caps, by Beizy (zipped for your convenience! *G*): http://www.livejournal.com/users/beizy/530127.html

A clip (and screenshots) of Billy in an interview about “Seed of Chucky”; very high quality, and the expressions! *L*!: http://www.livejournal.com/users/bam_a_lam/145398.html (note: you actually have to scroll down to one of bam_a_lam’s replies for the addy to the clip - I think my saving it this way will get you there - about 2nd or 3rd comment down: http://www.livejournal.com/users/bam_a_lam/145398.html?thread=962294#t962294)

On a personal note, work is going better. Yep, gotten used to the idea of another person being the head of the group, and actually quite relieved! He's a good guy, and I think things may work out for the best - we'll see! Certainly takes some of the pressure off of me.

Gah! I want to see that film!

Heck - I don't think I ever saw a photo of a fully erect penis in any sexual education classes... that's sad.

^_^ hee, we did. It was fun. A class full of ten or eleven year olds giggling insanely. I remember Robrecht even asked the teacher about gay sex and "would that actually FIT?!" And then we got to put a condom on a wooden penis.


*hugs happy!you*

Hey, and that so many years before we actually legalised gay marriage. (Of course, we had to wait until the Dutch did it first. We wouldn't want to look original now.)

He asked a whole lot of other questions as well. it was absolutely hilarious for the rest of us. Mainly about positions. I know one of them got "drawn" on the blackboard with stick figures and then quickly wiped out by a very redfaced teacher.

That was the same class as we learned about tampons and stuff, though. The teacher brought one to class and wanted to show how it worked so she dipped it in the little bucket of water that we had for cleaning the blackboard and the tampon came out HUGE! Everybody kind of went silent then. *L*

*LOL*!!!!

Oh, lord...that reminds me of - who was it that put the joke about Cinderalla up on LJ? Did you read it? The fairy godmother tells Cinderalla she has to wear a diaphragm, but at midnight it will turn into a pumpkin. Cinderalla is late (of course), and the fairy godmother is scared out of her wits, until the girl comes home, looking dreamy and happy. When asked who she was with, she replies "Oh, Peter, Peter.... something-eater..."

(there's an old nursery rhyme about "Peter, Peter, pumpkin-eater"...... *G*)

I'm pretty sure we didn't learn about gay sex, except in the context of "it's easier for two men to pass AIDS to each other, but more difficult for two women to do so."

And, yeah, you couldn't ask about gay sex here without having a note sent to your parents or something, I'm pretty sure.
