Thank God It's Naughty Friday

Since Cancer, the most important character in my dramatis personae, is on vacation, I have to create some gimmicks to thwart writer's block. So, I do a music post every Sunday, which is pretty low-pressure and indulges my obsession with obscure Europop. I think Friday needs a theme, as well...something which requires almost no effort, yet immediately draws eyes to the blog.

Yes, Sex! It will be fun and challenging to find something sexy, yet not too NSFW. After all, my mom reads this. (Mom, NSFW means "Not Safe For Work")

I sometimes lurk at the message boards of a website for young cancer patients called Planet Cancer. I mostly just lurk because I am, er...well over 40. The people who post in the PC forum are heroic in their struggles with the disease, and also in their determination to lead normal lives. And, an important part of being young and normal is to be sexual. In the Dating, Relationships & Sexuality forum a woman wrote:

Hi guys, I'm a little embarrassed to admit to this, but I think it is so funny and amazing, that I just have to post it, thanking the internet for the anonymity...

One night when I was in the hospital and my counts were really low, I think I was having some sexual dreams or something, and since I was awake at 4 am, I um...pleasured...myself. It was the first time in a long time, and definitely the first time since I was diagnosed with cancer. But let me tell you, it must have done some medical good because my blood counts shot up the next day! The doctors were stunned, but I didn't have the guts to tell them why!! I really think that short bit of happiness did some healing to by body and blood!

A mini-experiment followed, with her fellow posters trying to replicate the results before their scheduled tests. Their blood counts improved, too. So, not only will it not make you blind, but it may actually boost your immune system. Have a great weekend!

i can't wait to see what new searches you find now that you've added the "masturbation" and "sex" tags!

Well, there are plenty of blogs with those tags, though. I'm proud of cornering the market for fans of Pakistani girl's feet. It may just be one guy, but he hits this blog about 20 times a month.
