Sex
I do hope you have to hand a good large cup of the dark liquid and the ability to sip coffee, while reading a blog and not pack out with such unladylike roars of laughter that coffee sprays everywhere (this is a skill I still need to learn).

Sex is one of those really fun subjects to research for a blog post, especially one which really at the end of the day is being created to market a range of doodles from a cow girl diary. So, keep you sense of humor close to hand, hey if you hang out with a geek cow girl, a sense of humor is a requirement, and come along on an adventure though the wonderful world of sex's most funny (to me) unorthodox theories.

There was a theory (you can still come across it if you aren't careful when you are pregnant, believe you me, been there and found that one out), that sperm from the right testicle produces boys, and that from the left girls, or it may be the other way round, I wasn't really paying that much attention as I was too busy laughing out loud at the whole idea, but I did do a little bit of research once I had carmed down and stopped giggling, and found out to my never ending glee that Aristotle proposed a simple experiment to find out which, i.e. remove one testicle and see if further children born to this father thereafter are all boys or all girls. One wonders how many volunteers he got for that one LOL. 

 Then I was told that Hippocrates (c450 to c370) claimed that the Scythians had died out because they were all impotent from spending long hours in the saddle. Well frankly, any one who has spent any time what so ever around Polo players, would tend to find that one a tad unbelievable. Unfortunately for the life of me I can't find any proof that he did claim this, but I do so hope it is true, as it is a rather wonderfully unobservant theory in its own right.

"Pederasty" (Volume 10, section IV, D). Here Burton postulated that male homosexuality was prevalent in an area of the southern latitudes named by him the "Sotadic zone"
what?!?!? well the only Burton I know of is the explorer who, frankly had the type of life that I would be quiet happy having my self, you really do need to read some of his work but oh deary deary me a "sotadic zone" did give me a moment of pause, then frankly laughter, his books do actually make brilliant reading, you can find out more about Sir Richard Burton's blast across life here

Pope John Paul II (1920 to 2005) in 1980 claimed that not only is looking lustfully at someone else's spouse adultery, so too is looking lustfully at your own spouse. Hmmm think he might have been fighting a loosing battle on that point, if some of the posts on Google Plus, are anything to go by. Honesty, looking lustfully at your own spouse is a sin? W.T.F!

Barbara Cartland (1901 to 2000) came up with the idea that young brides might wish to wear a pair of white gloves on the first night of marriage, just is case they had to touch the beastly thing? (no comment, just hell no, no comment on that one).

History is full of were a brilliant bunch for sex but not sex, from Orson Fowler (1809 to 1887) "when you kiss and allow yourself to be kissed with an appetite, to fondle and be fondled, hug and be hugged, you are thereby perpetrating mental sexual intercourse". I would love to have put him and Bill Clinton in the same room and asked them to each to debate the word sex, damn tooting that would have been fun. Oh there is a book "What everyone knew about Sex by William M Dwyer" which frankly has me in tears of laughter, the link to it is here

Fowler tells us that "Victims of self-abuse have pallid, bloodless countenances, hollow, sunken and half-ghastly eyes, with a red rim around the eyelids, and black and blue semi circles around the eyes. Red pimples on the face, with black spot in their middle, are a sure sign of self pollution in males and irregularities in females" What? what on earth is this terrible self abuse that he is talking about and my word self pollution? Yup you got it, masturbation. Do you think Victorian teenagers also suffered from acne and hey ho, masturbated? Oh and he claimed that "Masturbation poisons your body" himmm not sure how exactly that one works out, and then you can find out that it "breaks down your nerves, paralyzes your whole system"..............hmmm well, frankly did the man ever just look at teenagers? They hardly come across on the whole as nervous wrecks with no pent up random energy" oh no wait, maybe he only observed them close to exam time LOL. Honestly the Victorians are frankly a brilliantly funny time of human life to read about.

Interestingly for me, it is quiet common to trip over examples of male homosexuality as the target of moral, legal and pseudo scientific prejudices, but lesbianism seems to have just been totally ignored or as in the case of Queen Victoria (1819 to 1901) to have been considered impossible, she is quoted as having said "that sex between women was impossible", then again, she did have a rather sheltered childhood, so one can't really blame her for that world view.

Now what I do find the most amusing about any time I get to spend online, is that unfortunately bizarre theories concerning sex and sexuality are not as one would hope confined to the pre Victorian and Victorian times, they emerge with amazing frequency and frankly would be rather hysterically funny if they were not so down right stupid and used to try to control other peoples behavior and feeling about them selves. Ah well, what you gonna do, laugh or cry, me I'd rather laugh!

Have a great day.

Phool Bagh Kanpur - An Urban Park Graced By the Nationalist Leaders
My driver was quick to take me to the Phool Bagh Kanpur which was an urban park but now needed restoration as most of the park’s beauty was destroyed by the innumerable political rallies that took place here. The park was constructed in the British Raj and the park was then named- Queen Victoria Garden. Now the park houses the Gandhi Bhawan, which has the Municipal Library and the Kanpur Museum too.

On Swan Lake. The landscape garden surrounding Rosenau Palace

Schloss Rosenau / Rosenau Palace (near Coburg, Upper Franconia, Bavaria, Germany) and the landscape garden surrounding Rosenau. 

This palace, basically a medieval structure, was rebuilt from 1808 to 1817 in the neo-Gothic style as a summer residence for Duke Ernst I of Sachsen-Coburg-Saalfeld.

Prince Albert of Sachsen-Coburg and Gotha, who married Queen Victoria in 1840, was born 1819 in Rosenau.

The landscape garden surrounding Rosenau Palace has a rich variety of park scenery and extensive views. Created in the early 19th century as an "ornamented farm" covering an area of 200 hectares.

Cobh – The Last Port Of Call For The Titanic
In August 2005 I visited Cork with the intention of photographing the City as well as the town of Cobh but it rained from the minute I arrived in Cork and it was so heavy that I could not use my camera so I gave up and went home after two days.
This week I decided to revisit Cork and Cobh and of course it rained from the minute that I arrived and it is still raining. Anyway I was better prepared this time and managed to take some photographs but some are a bit blurred (especially those taken on Fota Park) because of the constant rain. I also visited Midleton but upon my arrival in the town there was flash flooding.
Cobh is a seaport town on the south coast of County Cork, Ireland. Cobh is on the south side of Great Island in Cork Harbour. Facing the town are Spike Island and Haulbowline Island. On a high point in the town stands Cobh (St Colman’s) Cathedral, one of the tallest buildings in Ireland and seat of the diocese of Cloyne.
One of the major transatlantic Irish ports, Cobh was the departure point for 2.5 million of the six million Irish people who emigrated to North America between 1848 and 1950. On 11 April 1912 Queenstown was the final port of call for the RMS Titanic as she set out across the Atlantic on her ill-fated maiden voyage. She was assisted by the PS America and PS Ireland, two aging White Star Line tenders, along with several other smaller boats delivering first-class luggage. Local lore has it that a Titanic crew member John Coffey, a native of Queenstown, jumped ship although there is no record of him on the crew list. 123 passengers boarded in all; only 44 survived the sinking.
Cobh was also a major embarkation port for men, women and children who were deported to penal colonies such as Australia. The records of such deportations can be found in the ship log books in the Cobh Museum, which since 1973 is housed in Scots church (Presbyterian church until 1969 closure) overlooking the harbour.
Due to its maritime advantages, a significant shipbuilding industry developed in Cobh and the remnants of the Verolme Shipyard today maintain many of the original cranes and hoists which now form part of the significant industrial and maritime heritage of Cobh which is considered to have major tourism potential.
The age of steam brought famous achievements to Cobh, most notably the first steam ship to sail from Ireland to England (1821) and the first steam ship to cross the Atlantic (Sirius 1838) which left from Passage West. In 1849 the name of the town was changed to Queenstown to honour Queen Victoria who visited Ireland in that year.
Several other notable ships are associated with the town, including:

The Cunard passenger liner RMS Lusitania was sunk by a German U-Boat off the Old Head of Kinsale while en route to Liverpool on May 7, 1915. 1198 passengers died, while 700 were rescued. The survivors and victims were brought to the town of Cobh, and over one hundred lie buried in the Old Church Cemetery just north of the town. The Lusitania Peace memorial is located in Casement Square opposite the arched building housing the Cobh Library and Courthouse.

I was trying to fall asleep last night and instead I had an idea for a Victorian Steampunk Larp (with maybe a touch of supernatural). The idea for the rules would be really simple. The things you can do would be completely based on a combination of your Class and Job. I want to use something similar to what the Firefly RPG did and make those abilities descriptive instead of stats... like "Dead Broke" or "Slow Learner" (those two are from Firefly). 
So an example would be that if you choose to be a commoner, you would get "Dead Broke" and "Friends in Low Places". If you decided your job would be a cop for Scotland Yard, you would get " Wears a Badge" and maybe "Nose For Trouble" and so on. Then maybe allow the player to choose a couple extra 'traits' outside of class or job related ones to round out the character.
I was also thinking that each character is either working FOR Queen Victoria/England, AGAINST the Queen/England or is working for themselves/the highest bidder. That way, the games gets a full cast without requiring actors.
