As much fun as a dry root

A sexless orgy would be as much fun as a dry root

Jackie Bell doesn’t like sex. But she does enjoy a good snuggle.

The 43-year-old attends monthly “cuddling” sessions in Wellington, where up to 20 clothed people consent to hug and touch. Sexual contact is forbidden.

“It’s like being at a sexless orgy,” Bell says.

If experts are right, about 40,000 New Zealanders are “asexuals” who feel no sexual attraction at all.

    And are they allowed to get married Andrei because they won’t want to have kids? I’m not being facetious, I would really like to know your views.

    All that cuddling with no sex but what happens when an asexual gets a stiffy?

      Heads will roll.

    An ideal night out for the non gay members of the Green caucus.

    • Travis Poulson

      They have non gay members?

        I understand that nobody is entirely certain. There was talk of a mandatory quota of two straight MPs so that the party would be seen as balanced.

    I guess it wouldn’t be hard to police, just like the nudist colonies: first sign of a stiffie and you’re out!

    Whale, did you notice this wonderful piece of journalism?

    “He had sex for the first time six years ago – on April 17, 2008, to be precise”

    I maybe wrong but I make that four years….

      Perhaps he was speaking from the future…

    I reckon this is a beatup. As soon as the cameras left, they shagged themselves silly.

    What’s wrong with a “dry root”?

    The old story……..Sex, even when it’s bad, it’s good!

    • Richard McGrath

      Don’t you believe it! As some wise head once said ‘There’s nothing as over-rated as bad sex, and nothing as under-rated as a good crap.’

    The gweens should be encouraged to do this, it will stop the ludites from breeding.
