Octopussy orgies...

...it is thought that what happens is that the male injects his sperm packages into the female's arms. The process is likely to be a fairly violent affair as the female is probably not that keen on being injected. This is a problem for the amorous male as females are normally a third bigger than they are.

"But males get round their inferior size by being endowed with a particularly long penis, which means they can inject the female without having to get too close to her chomping beak. The male's sexual organ is actually a bit like a high-pressure fire hose and is normally nearly as long as his body - excluding legs and head.


I thought that may get your interest. Quoted from here where, as a footnote to his post, PZ Meyers adds, “Forget March of the Penguins. There's a great documentary waiting to be made here: Squid Gone Wild. Cephalopod Sex Party." although strictly speaking he is referring to giant squid and not octopus...I wonder if he has similar fanatasies to me?… "I’m jealous of the multi-tasking tendriled/ tentacled, polymorphous orgasm-inducing powers of a series of fictional plants, aliens and cephalopod or gastropod molluscs!"...taken from the 2nd of Owsblog’s orgasm posts.

Orgies always seem to involve images of wild gatherings including excessive drinking and promiscuity or of secret cults of ancient Greek or Roman deities with singing, dancing and drinking and often rites of sexual activity - early and tribal cultures had some group sex rituals associated with fertility and spring but these are not especially well-documented. In fact not until Greek and Roman Empires that a common word for those rituals emerged - orgia, in both Latin and Greek. Although many believe that the Greeks and Romans were sex-crazed, their orgia were not what we imagine when the word "orgy" is used, although ‘those’ - you know the ones I mean - orgies did occur. The original orgies were associated with the Greek cults of Orpheus and Dionysus, a pair that literally invoke wine, women and song!

The Latin orgia usually referred to beanos and feasts where gluttonous eating and binge drinking would be the norm; the guests at the orgia would often adjourn to another room with each other or with sex slaves provided by the host.

'Officially' an Orgy is any act of immoderate indulgence and may not necessarily involve sex (see Great Wall Party from China Daily) but more usually does involve overt sex, see Dutch story here...

...where 10 couples who were being "particularly boisterous" with each other while the others watched.

…But police called to the scene admitted they were powerless to act [Ows adds - just not turned on then? Ahem] despite numerous complaints from other beach users, and could only give the naked orgy lovers a verbal warning.”

Peety, were you involved!...;-)

Anyway getting back to cephalopods, orgasms and orgies I thought it a good excuse to add one or two more erotic illustrations from Marjorie Baldwin Greene (did you notice?) who's archives and sketches are well worth a visit. The one below is called 'Tongue'...

Am I normal or am I kidding myself when I think that I am?

S.O.

Ha ha! You're sex crazed.;-)

Span Ows said...

Hehehe...crazed...maybe, and more like sex-starved. Being a 40+ year old, battered, bruised and stiff(but not where you'd imagine!) fatty means I'm not the catch I once was...YES I WAS!

I think it's all in a day's work Spanish.

Entirely normal, inoffensive stuff IMHO.

You go rock that Kasbah!

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Span Ows said...

Mags! What?...What?!!!! Have you forgotten that this is (almost!) par for the 'owsblog' course?

I mean at least there are no links to clit.com on this post!

...mind you I do have another 'perfect' naughty octopus sketch at the ready...

Interesting site of Marjories.
The complexities of female sexuality explored.
I often wonder what it would be like to male, life must be so easy and simple ;)

Span Ows said...

Hi Lucy! Simple when the male doesn't care about a woman's pleasure and only wants to get his own rocks off, spurt his load, roll over and fall asleep - it becomes much less simple when female pleasure is all that is important...

Gavin Corder said...

No you're not normal! And the best part is that (unlike the rest of us) you make no effort to conceal this fact.

Since you likened an orgy to a beano, I've posted the
low down on beanos

Span Ows said...

NOT NORMAL!!! (mouth agape in horror with hand [palm facing outwards] over mouth).

BTW, Thanks for the link on your post and I shall reciprocate later...

Gavin Corder said...

Don't start me on the greek agape...!

Span Ows said...

leading to the 'Christian Agape...Capital A...Agape...;-)

erotic, eh?

Gavin Corder said...

One is of course put in mind of the slipper limpet also...ample penis to my recollection...

PENIS: BODY SIZE RATIO

Lucy said...

Don't go getting a complex Gavin!
I do wonder if this Artist is really female.

Gavin Corder said...

Such technical matters are important Lucy.

Span Ows said...

Christ you two have been busy!...in the posting sense of course...I PRESUME!!...;-)

That slipper limpet - the name suggest the opposite, doesn't it?

I think Marj is definitely a woman,one that doesn't need a man! I have comunicated with her but of course never met; I think that intense clitoral stimulation is important to her - the pictures certainly cause a stirring in mY loins and....er, well let's leave it there!...;-)

IsobelMagsBuchan said...

There was me thinking that it was women that got sated and then rolled over and went to sleep. Don't tell Mr Mags!
