This Week in Weird News:
Can You Orgasm
By Kevin Christian L. Santos
Newsflash: IT’S RAINING! While most of us would rather just stay in bed all day, we have go to work (or go to school because a certain vice mayor decided against cancelling classes despite ALREADY RAINING SIDEWAYS!). Don’t worry, we got enough weirdness to keep you warm and cozy.
Let’s take another look at the wacky world of weird stuff, starting with…
Couple claims they can orgasm just by hugging
What’s your excuse now lads? 😂😂
Posted by LADbible on Sunday, July 23, 2017
Some couples have trouble reaching orgasm during sex, while some have gone so far as to admit to faking it. Well these couples have got nothing on Melanie and Scott McClure. The Texas couple claim they can orgasm just by hugging each other.
They even claim that they can orgasm from sex (of course), breathing, and weather conditions (wat). They’ve even experienced 18-hour long orgasms. Now, they want to impart their secrets to anyone willing to learn.
The couple of eight years run Ecstatic hearts, which teaches people about Tantra. It is an ancient yoga-based practice that utilizes sexual energy and helps to reach higher states of consciousness. Scott says “Through practicing Tantra, Melanie and I can get into heightened states of orgasm through breathing, hugging and touching as well as sex. Even sounds, tastes and simply resonating with the earth can send us into ecstasy. Melanie and I can even have orgasms with friends we’ve never had sex with but whom we practice Tantra with. A few months ago, we went camping with two friends and we were all having orgasms from the lightning bolts outside.”
Seems legit. But let Gary Hunter sum up what we’re all asking:
King Cobras are being smuggled inside potato chip cans and OH HELL NAW
In what could be the worst potato chips ever, King Cobras are now being smuggled into the United States inside potato chip cans.
The NPR reports that U.S. agents were already suspicious that the cans from Hong Kong were already being used to smuggle animals. They found three live King Cobras in one of the cans, and arrested the man who was to receive the package in Los Angeles.
Rodrigo Franco could face 20 years in prison on a charge of illegally importing merchandise. Officials are also accusing him of violating the Endangered Species Act and falsifying records. Besides the venomous snakes, agents also found three albino Chinese soft-shelled turtles.
When officers raided his home, they found animals living in tanks, such as a Morelet’s crocodile, snapping turtles, and terrapins.
Trans artist explains why periods aren’t just for women
Y’all know I’m trans and queer,
And what that means for me all around,
Is something that’s neither there nor here,
Trans artist and activist Cass Clemmer just shared a bold Facebook post breaking down why periods aren’t just for women.
People who don’t identify as women also have to deal with periods, like trans people and non-binary people. Being a trans person, Cass doesn’t identify as a woman and prefers the pronoun they/them. Cass also happens to menstruate.
Through the Toni the Tampon account, Cass shared their photo of them free-bleeding, with a sign that says “Periods are not just for women. #BleedingWhileTrans.”
Speaking with Metro, Cass says “Getting your period while not identifying as a woman can feel like a monthly battle both with your own body and with a world that continuously tells you that your identity isn’t real. I also specifically wanted to share the #bleedingwhiletrans photo to help people start thinking about the very real access and safety issues we face when we menstruate, including bathroom use, access to period products, fear of being outed due to leaks, and the lack of disposable bins in men’s restrooms for our used products.”
Despite the backlash and transphobia, Cass has no plans of stopping anytime soon. Cass’ Toni the Tampon project will continue to fight the taboos of menstruation and periods.
Ever wanted to own a creepy clown motel because we don’t
If the movies It and House of 1,000 Corpses have taught us anything, it’s that you should never, ever mess with clowns. If you’re a glutton for punishment, love scaring yourself silly or just have a plain lack of common sense, you can own your very own creepy clown motel.
Aptly called Clown Motel, the “Creepiest Motel in America” has everything you would want from a creepy clown motel. Clowns dangling over your bed? Check. Hundreds of clown dolls staring at you in the motel lobby? Check. Said clowns to possibly stab you in your sleep? Possible check. All these could be yours for the reasonable price of $900,000 (roughly PHP 45,473,400).
Owner Bob Perchetti says he’s hoping to sell the property to he can have more time fishing and spending time with his grandchildren. The catch? You have to keep the clowns if you buy the property. What a bargain!
A traumatizing night with clowns that will probably murder you in your dreams? That’s priceless.
