Have an orgasm... for peaceglobalorgasm.org: Global Orgasm - December 22nd, 2006 - Peace through Global Ecstasy
Washington - Standard excuses like "Honey, I have a headache" would, no doubt, be highly inappropriate. Indeed, who can say no if world peace is at stake?
So, if you believe there is too much killing in the modern world, you might consider shedding your clothes and engaging in passionate sex on Friday, December 22.
Because if White House strategists argue for "peace through strength", veteran peace activists Donna Sheehan and Paul Reffell counter by saying it will come through sex - and a loud worldwide orgasm.
"The intent is that the participants concentrate any thoughts during and after orgasm on peace," the organisers said in a statement posted on the project's website www.globalorgasm.org.
That, explain Sheehan and Reffell, could change "the energy field of the Earth" and "reduce the current dangerous levels of aggression and violence".
In addition to the war in Iraq, the two are seriously concerned about the US naval build-up in the Gulf, which they fear could be a prelude to a war against Iran.
The label of mischievous youths is hardly applicable to either of the two: Sheehan, who is not related to anti-war demonstrator Cindy Sheehan who has been laying siege to President George W Bush's ranch in Crawford, Texas, is 76, and Reffell is 55. news24.com
