The Bliss Day Against War

Hecate writes about the Global Orgasm Day, December 22, on her blog. The idea is to have an orgasm for peace:

Oak explains that: It could be argued that all magic IS sex magic, as all magic involves the life force, which is inherently sexual. Given that, magic that literally uses sex packs a powerful punch, and tends to be effective. A call to action to have people around the globe orgasm on the same day while invoking peace is a call I have to answer. This really could work. . . .

On the other hand, orgasms have been called "little death".

The people behind the Global Orgasm Day are the same people who did those anti-war protests naked. I stole Hecate's picture to show you one (fairly pink) example:

Why all this sex stuff? Because otherwise the media pays no attention to peace protests. There has to be sex or violence in everything, and violence in peace protests is not a good thing. So sex it will be.

The problem with that approach is that it can also take attention from the goal of the protest and it can label the people nutters. But that's what peace demonstrators are always labeled "by some" as the Fox News would say. I know that from my own experience, though I didn't even protest naked.
