Last weekend my wife and I saw a wonderful show of the early 1900 Belgian artist Edgard Tytgat. He has a lot of (lightly) erotic themes in his work. I found it funny, but also moving that he preferred unprofessional models, which leads to portraits of women that evidently feel awkward in this situation. From the documentation I understand that nothing untoward ever happened. He painted them in his own house, in the presence of his own wife with whom he had a life-long and satisfying marriage. Also fascinating that I had never heard of him, even though I'm an art nerd.

From my favorite economics weblog:

You know the story about the male Victorian physicians who unwittingly produced orgasms in their female clients by treating them for “hysteria” with newly-invented, labor-saving, mechanical vibrators? It’s little more than an urban legend albeit one transmitted through academic books and articles. Hallie Lieberman and Eric Schatzberg, the authors of a shocking new paper, A Failure of Academic Quality Control: The Technology of Orgasm, don’t quite use the word fraud but they come close.

But there’s only one problem with Maines’ argument: we could find no evidence that physicians ever used electromechanical vibrators to induce orgasms in female patients as a medical treatment. We examined every source that Maines cites in support of her core claim. None of these sources actually do so. We also discuss other evidence from this era that contradicts key aspects of Maines’ argument. This evidence shows that vibrators were indeed used penetratively, and that manual massage of female genitals was never a routine medical treatment for hysteria.

I'm shocked. This was one of my favorite weird tales ...

I'm not looking for one, or encouraging them, or thinking of becoming one, but do you still get flashers? In the 1970s a comedy show wouldn't be a comedy show without a flasher in it, turning their back to the camera and opening their mac. There's even one in Kinvig, to get Fortean. And one of the James Herbert rats books has one (Lair, I think?). Have they died out? Did people as described ever actually exist?

The Internet has given exhibitionists* of all kinds the opportuntity to disport themselves without fear of the park-keeper's whistle.

Do they still have park-keepers? Do they blow whistles? Did they ever? I think the Beano invented them.

*They look - mainly - like faces in want of a good bush. Research conducted ages ago! :buck:

More seriously, life's flashers seem to have taken to the new media, granting their victims an unwanted view of their genitals upon the opening of any random message.

Safer to ditch the phone and go the park! :omr:

"FIRE FIGHTERS were called to a house in Knoxville, Tennessee, in April 1995
when neighbours smelled something burning. There they found the nude body of
a 16-year-old boy and called in police. Confronted with posters of
heavy-metal rock groups and a cow's heart attached to the boy's genitals,
they at first thought they were dealing with a ritual murder. However, they
then found several underground pornographic magazines under the boy's bed,
one of which, Ovid Now, described a 'sex-toy' that could be made from the
fresh heart of a cow, a simple electrical circuit and some batteries. The
dead heart is made to beat, and then used sexually in a perversion which is
apparently gaining popularity in the rural South. The trouble was, the boy
had wired up the heart and plugged it into the wall-socket. He died of
electrocution, and the electricity had then cooked his remains."

From a page which was referenced in the very early days of this wicked thread.

Amazingly, it is still up! As the Bishop always used to say . . . :gent:

Snopes goes and spoils it. :p

Posters of heavy metal rock and roll groups covered his bedroom walls, groups which are often connected with satanic worship and rituals.
Someone I knew was once written up by a doctor she went to see as a 'Satanist' because she was wearing a Black Sabbath teeshirt at the consultation.

Anyway, I know a story that's nearly as weird that I read in the BMJ so it's perfectly true. Several in fact, thinking about it.

"All my people are larger bodies than mine, . . . with voices gentle and meaningless like the voices of sleeping birds. One is an artist, he is living at home. One is a musician, she is living at home. One is my mother who is good to me. One is my father who is good to me. One is the pervert of the family who is burning in his bed with an electrified cow's heart on his pee-pee thing. By some chance, here they are, all on this earth; and who shall ever tell the sorrow of being on this earth . . . "

from Knoxville, Springtime of 1995 - by James Agee and Anotherone. :mcoat:


Here's Leontyne Price singing the original version!

1983: Jimmy Ferrozzo, a bouncer, died in Condor Club, San Francisco while engaging in sexual intercourse with his girlfriend Theresa Hill on a grand piano that was lowered from the ceiling by a hydraulic motor. Ferrozzo accidentally activated the lifting mechanism which pinned him against the ceiling leading to his suffocation.[135] Hill survived the accident.[135]

1991: A male flight instructor and a female student, Carl Beauford Terry and Linda Varnar Keath,[137] were killed when the Piper PA-34 Seneca airplane they were flying crashed, believed to have been caused by the two people having sex in the cockpit of the plane.[138] Movements in the cockpit led to the stick being pushed down and the airplane exceeding its speed limitations and breaking off the right wing.

2008: A 43-year-old Irish mother of four died of an allergic reaction after having sex with a German Shepherd dog.[165]

As a Catholic I find this very painful, if true. But still very Fortean and fitting in this category :-(

https://ascienceenthusiast.com/using-hand-signs-deaf-orphans-groomed-sex-pope-franciss-watch/

But the Daily Beast broke a story that, at least for now, tops them all in the contest of being the worst of the worst. According to their reporting, the Catholic Church oversaw a school for special needs children – children who are deaf or deaf and mute – where they were systematically groomed for sex by the priests using hand signals.

But this could also be part of the orthodox campaign against the "too liberal" Pope Francis that's going on right now.

I'm not a Catholic and it's sad for me too. Heartbreaking. The most vulnerable children imaginable, being exploited by people who should have cared for and protected them.

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump
“Federal Judge throws out Stormy Danials lawsuit versus Trump. Trump is entitled to full legal fees.” @FoxNews Great, now I can go after Horseface and her 3rd rate lawyer in the Great State of Texas. She will confirm the letter she signed! She knows nothing about me, a total con!

Stormy Daniels @StormyDaniels
Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present your president. In addition to his...umm...shortcomings, he has demonstrated his incompetence, hatred of women and lack of self control on Twitter AGAIN! And perhaps a penchant for bestiality. Game on, Tiny.
