Miscellaneous Amusing Items I’ve Come Across #24

Does anyone else suspect that, when it comes to sex, they might just be a tiny bit out of the loop? Memo to self: install monkey bars in bedroom. Repeat: monkey bars…

    Hmm maybe she’s a robot and has lifted her owner/master up. It is 2010 after all, sexual equality for robots and iphones could become an issue in the 21st century.

    Looking at that list of contributors, I might be right, they’re all in the “gender special” category.

    Butler, you need to get into the 21 century man. I have a sort of trapeze yoke set up in my room. The women go mad for it, mad i tell ya!!

    They could be sharing bunkbeds either like?

  4. DD Says:

    They’re a trapeze act. One has fallen asleep. The other is wishing for a career as something other than a trapeze act.

    If this is any better you could always imagine John Waters and Mary Kenny having monkey bar sex? Think about it seriously get a nice mental image there.

  8. Eoin Says:

    Only reading these comments now. Graham… how the hell are they sharing bunk beds? What’s keeping yer man in the bunk bed for one thing?

  9. Kate Says:

    i have no objection to monkey bars, tightly tucked sheets or cement filled bosoms, but they can’t be serious using that photo to advertise a discussion on sex equality. is this real, Eoin?

  10. Eoin Says:

    It is, Kate. It called Village Magazine, quite a serious Irish magazine I used to write for back when it had contributers.


  11. Eoin Says:

    Also, to be fair, both sexes look equally stupid in that photograph, so its not completely inappropriate.

  12. Johnny Bull Says:

    Him: “It rubs the lotion on its skin, or else it gets the hose again”

    Her: “Im sick of rubbing that fecking lotion, come down here and do it yerself”

    Him: “Alright, I will”

  13. Odysseus Bamburger Says:

    It’s like a Christian 69er

  14. Kate Says:

    It’s an odd choice of image to use given the list of contributors. Sure, the guy is equally as attractive as the girl, but she and her exceptionally large breasts (and her body which is even more exposed in the actual full image in your link)are the focal point. Noami Wolf would have a few things to say about that.

    why not turn the woman upside down and have the title of the magazine cover her genitalia instead? You’d still have your monkey bar fantasy, just in different light.

    I just don’t see what they’re getting at by having a naked, beautiful and finished woman fully exposed in contrast her male counterpart and then to associate them with the topic of sex equality.

    Sex sells.
