A toilet is a sanitation fixture used primarily for the disposal of human excrement and urine, often found in a small room referred to as a toilet/bathroom/lavatory. Flush toilets, which are common in many parts of the world, may be connected to a nearby septic tank or more commonly in urban areas via “large” (3–6 inches, 7.6–15 cm) sewer pipe connected to a sewerage pipe system. The water and waste from many different sources is piped in large pipes to a more distant sewage treatment plant. Chemical toilets are used in mobile and many temporary situations where there is no access to sewerage, dry toilets, including pit toilets and composting toilet require no or little water with excreta being removed manually or composted in situ.
The word toilet may also be used, especially in British English to describe the room containing the fixture, for which euphemisms such as restroom or bathroom are used in American English. Prior to the introduction of modern flush toilets, most human waste disposal was done through the use of household chamber pots, or took place outdoors in outhouses or latrines. Pail closets were introduced in England and France in an attempt to reduce sewage problems in rapidly expanding cities.
Ancient civilisations used toilets attached to simple flowing water sewage systems included those of the Indus Valley Civilization, e.g., Harappa[ and Mohenjo-daro which are located in present day India and Pakistan and also the Romans and Egyptians. Although a precursor to the modern flush toilet system was designed in 1596 by John Harington, such systems did not come into widespread use until the late nineteenth century. Thomas Crapper was one of the early maker of toilets in England.
Diseases, including cholera – which still affects some 3 million people each year, -can be largely prevented when effective sanitation and water treatment prevents faecal matter from contaminating waterways, groundwater and drinking water supplies. Infected water supplies can be treated to make the water safe for consumption and use. There have been five main cholera outbreaks and pandemics since 1825, during one of which 10,000 people died in 1849 in London alone. The physician John Snow proved that deaths were being caused by people drinking water from a source that had been contaminated by a nearby cesspit that was used by people who were infected with cholera. The London sewer system of the time had not reached crowded Soho and many houses had cellars (basements) with overflowing cesspools underneath their floorboards.
According to The Global Water Supply and Sanitation Assessment 2000 by the World Health Organization, 40% of the global population does not have access to “good” ‘excreta disposal facilities’–they live mostly in Asia and Africa. There are efforts being made to design simple effective squat toilets for these people. Usually, they are made by digging a hole, then installing a premade plastic squat toilet seat atop this hole, covering the walls with canvas.
Daggering is a form of dance originating in the Caribbean. The dance incorporates sexual and other forms of frantic movement.
It is a more explicit version of grinding and perreo and often features acrobatic stunts where one partner leaps from a height onto the other dance partner and then commences to engage in exaggerated simulated sexual intercourse.
The activity of “daggering” has been present in Jamaica’s dancehalls for many years, but only recently has the term daggering become widely used.
It has been argued that it’s roughly the equivalent of the Caribbean’s “cabin stabbing”, another style of music and dance.
Reggae historian David Katz attributes the recently gained popularity of daggering to a series of dancehall music videos and artists that promoted the style.
Controversial YouTube daggering videos spread the craze worldwide.
The spiralling popularity of daggering led the Jamaican government to take the unprecedented step of an all-out radio and TV ban on songs and videos with blatantly sexual content.
The Jamaican Broadcast Commission defines daggering as “a colloquial term or phrase used in dancehall culture as a reference to hardcore sex or what is popularly referred to as ‘dry’ sex, or the activities of persons engaged in the public simulation of various sexual acts and positions.” Therefore, “There shall not be transmitted, any recording, live song, or music video which promotes the act of daggering or which makes reference to, or is otherwise suggestive of daggering.”
Dancehall singers are up in arms over the ban, saying it stifles their right to free speech and cultural diversity.
After allegedly seeing many cases of damaged penis tissue, Jamaican doctors issued a warning about the dangers of daggering. They claimed the resultant condition could lead to permanent damage to the male sexual organ.
The Jamaican Star even reported doctors as saying that the number of damaged penises they were treating had risen dramatically.
Andrei Laskatelev argues that historically numerous dances have been banned (the belly dance, the tango, the waltz etc.) and that it is just a matter of time before the ban on daggering is lifted.
Above an example of a photo censored by Facebook.
Earlier this year Facebook censored the painting Ema by Gerhard Richter which had been posted on the platform by the Pompidou Centre in Paris to promote a Richter retrospective. After a complaint from this world-famous museum, Facebook reinstated the post and claimed it had mistaken the painting for a photograph (nude paintings and sculptures are allowed on the platform, nude photographs are not).
French blog Les Notes de Véculture described Facebook’s position as typical US “institutional puritanism”. Why only allow nude sculptures and paintings? What’s wrong with nude photographs? There are thousands of nude photographs displayed in art galleries and museums around the world, shown alongside nude paintings and sculpture.
And let’s not forget most Facebook users aren’t world-famous museums posting images crafted by world famous artists – and so the site simply rides roughshod over most people’s right to free expression, and has no appeals system to check it’s completely arbitrary and censorious decisions.
Facebook has been at the centre of many censorship rows. The platform has censored pictures of victims of western military imperialism and disabled the accounts of those who posted them; the site has also banned Gustave Courbet’s painting The Origin of the World and disabled the accounts of those who have posted this important art historical image.
Origine du monde (The Origin of the World – which I can’t post above because earlier this year WordPres.com also deleted an account that posted the image for being ‘pornographic’) is an oil-on-canvas painted by French artist Gustave Courbet in 1866. It is a close-up view of the genitals and abdomen of a naked woman, lying on a bed with legs spread. The framing of the nude body, with head, arms and lower legs outside of view, emphasizes the eroticism of the work. It’s too much for Facebook and too much for WordPress too!
A wet t-shirt contest is an exhibitionistic competition typically featuring young women contestants at a nightclub, bar, or resort. They have traditionally been a staple of college spring break celebrations at locations such as Daytona Beach and Cancún.
Contestants generally wear white or light-coloured t-shirts without bras or other garments beneath. Water is then sprayed or poured onto the participants’ chests, causing their t-shirts to turn translucent and cling to their breasts.
Contestants may take turns dancing or posing before the audience, with the winner decided either by crowd reaction or by the opinions of judges.
In more racy contests, participants may tear or crop their t-shirts to expose midriffs, cleavage, or the undersides of their breasts. Depending on local laws, participants may or may not be allowed to remove their t-shirts during their performance.
The idea of the wet t-shirt contest originated in Spain in the 1940s, around the same time as the introduction of the Spanish festival La Tomatina. La Tomatina is a large public tomato fight where participants become soaked with juice from tomatoes.
In the United States wet t-shirt contests first made an organized appearance in Palm Beach, California in the 1970s. Contests were becoming frequently hosted in local bars and restaurants. Many sources claim that the popularity of wet t-shirt contests can be traced back to Jacqueline Bisset’s appearance in the 1977 film The Deep, where she swam underwater for several scenes wearing only a white t-shirt.
Laurette Marcia “Laura” Gemser (born October 5, 1950, Java, Indonesia) is exploitation film actress. She is best known for taking the lead role in a series of Black Emanuelle films and working with Italian directors such as Joe D’Amato and Bruno Mattei.
Gemser left Indonesia at the age of four (in 1955) and moved with her parents to the Netherlands. She grew up in the Dutch city of Utrecht, where she attended the MULO Regentesseschool school. Later she studied at the Artibus Art School in Utrecht, where she specialized in fashion design.
After modelling in various magazines in the Netherlands and Belgium, Gemser took roles in various softcore porn films. She became an international box office sensation after starring in a number of Black Emanuelle films in the 1970s.
In 1975 Gemser moved to Italy. Gemser took on a more mainstream role as Laotian refugee Keo Sirisomphone in Michael Landon’s 1983 American television movie, Love Is Forever – in this she was billed as Moira Chen.
After this Gemser continued to make films, albeit more often than not in supporting roles, and at times working with her actor husband, Gabriele Tinti. Gemser also appeared in at least one aerobics workout video in the mid-eighties.
In the 1990s Gemser gave up acting and switched to doing costume design for film.
Gemser’s husband Tinti died of cancer in 1991. Currently Gemser is retired and keeps a low profile in Rome.
The Spanda system, introduced by Vasugupta (c. 800 AD), is usually described as “vibration/movement of consciousness”. Abhinavagupta uses the expression “some sort of movement” to imply the distinction from physical movement; it is rather a vibration or sound inside the Divine, a throb. The essence of this vibration is the ecstatic self-recurrent consciousness.
The central tenet of this system is “everything is Spanda”, both the objective exterior reality and the subjective world. Nothing exists without movement, yet the ultimate movement takes place not in space or time, but inside the Supreme Consciousness. So, it is a cycle of internalization and externalization of consciousness itself, relating to the most elevated plane in creation (Śiva-Śakti Tattva).
In order to describe the connotations of the Spanda concept, a series of equivalent concepts are enumerated, such as: self recurrent consciousness – vimarśa, unimpeded will of the Supreme Consciousness – svātantrya, supreme creative energy – visarga, heart of the divine – hṛdaya and ocean of light-consciousness – cidānanda.
The most important texts of the system are Śiva Sutras, Spanda Karika and Vijñāna Bhairava Tantra.
Zumba is a Colombian dance fitness programme created by dancer and choreographer Alberto “Beto” Perez during the 1990s. In recent years it has been reinvented by US citizen Alexis Wright who popularised it as nude Zumba with a more overt sexual content that the original fitness programme.
Zumba involves dance and aerobic elements. Zumba’s choreography incorporates hip-hop, soca, samba, salsa, merengue, mambo, martial arts, and some Bollywood and belly dance moves. Squats and lunges are also included.
Zumba Fitness, an organization that sells Zumba videos and products, does not charge licensing fees to gyms or fitness centres. Approximately 14 million people take weekly Zumba classes in over 140,000 locations across more than 150 countries. Zumba’s popularity exploded after the Alexis Wright Zumba prostitution scandal broke across international news media in 2011.
In 1986, Perez forgot his tape of aerobics music for a class he was teaching. He took the tapes he had in his backpack—consisting of traditional salsa and merengue music—and improvised a class using this non-traditional aerobics music. After finding initial success in Colombia, he moved to the United States in 2001, where he teamed up with co-founder Alberto Perlman and a childhood friend, COO Alberto Aghion. The trio produced a demo reel, and the concept was discovered and licensed by a company called Fitness Quest to create a direct marketing campaign and a line of home videos.
Alexis Wright began teaching Zumba classes in the sleepy New England town of Kennebunk in 2009, before opening her own studio there the following year. She was also incorporating Zumba into the porn videos she made to post on the web and her sexual encounters (often filmed) with various local businessmen and politicians. These gradually created a sensation and spread an awareness of Zumba into sectors of the population who would have never heard of it otherwise.
Zumba sessions are typically about an hour long and are taught by instructors licensed by an organization called Zumba Academy. The exercises include music with fast and slow rhythms, as well as resistance training. The music comes from the following dance styles: cumbia, salsa, merengue, mambo, flamenco, chachacha, reggaeton, soca, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, hip hop music, axé music and tango.
Officially there are eight different types of classes for different levels of age and exertion. These include Zumba, Zumba Gold, Zumba Toning, Aqua Zumba, Zumbatomic, Zumba in the circuit, Zumba Gold-Toning and Zumba Sentao. Zumba Gold mainly targets the older population. It is specifically designed to the needs of the elderly and includes the same kind of music as the Zumba fitness party class. Zumba Toning is for the people who do their workouts with toning sticks. Zumba Toning will target the abs, thighs, arms, and other areas. Aqua Zumba is Zumba in a swimming pool. Zumba in the circuit is the dance combined with circuit training.
Until Alexis Wright created the Zumba Porn – the ninth and most popular type of Zumba class – this fitness programme appealed mostly to women. Zumba Porn got much of the adult male population interested in this fitness craze for the first time. However Zumba Porn is not an official part of the Zumba programme but is practiced unofficially by millions around the world.
Because Zumba offers different options, proponents of Zumba claim that it is safe for all ages – although many think Zumba Porn should be restricted to adults over the age of 21. At least some Zumba classes are specifically aimed at elderly people, to help them build strength, improve motion and posture, and socialize. A typical Zumba session burns between 500 and 1000 calories.
Proponents of Zumba began selling DVDs via infomercials in 2002. In 2005 The Zumba Academy was launched to licence instructors for teaching Zumba classes. In 2007 the company launched a clothing line called Zumba®wear. Zumba released its first fitness video game, Zumba Fitness on November 30, 2010. In July 2012, it released the compilation album Zumba Fitness Dance Party. Zumba Porn is not an official part of the Zumba programme but interest in it and Alexis Wright eclipses all other aspects of Zumba.
Michael Roth on October 7, 2012 at 1:28 am: In 1986, Chus Martinez forgot his traditional hetero porno tape for a class he was teaching. He took the porno tapes he had in his backpack—consisting of fetish porn—and improvised a class using this non-traditional pornography. After finding initial success in Spain, he moved to the United States in 2001, where he teamed up with Alberto Pearlnecklace and Alberto Analbeast. The trio produced a demo reel, and the concept for amateur fetish porn was licensed by Fitness Quim to create a direct marketing campaign and a line of home videos.

Cunnilingus is an oral sex act performed on a female. It involves the use by a sex partner of the mouth, lips and tongue to stimulate the female’s clitoris, vulva, or vagina. A female may receive cunnilingus as part of foreplay before sexual intercourse, or as intercourse. As in all human sexual behaviour, both the techniques used in cunnilingus and an individual’s response to them are varied.
The clitoris is the most sexually sensitive erogenous zone for most women, but may be too sensitive to comfortably stimulate at times, especially in early stages of arousal. Author Shere Hite notes in The Hite Report that most women achieve orgasm easily from clitoral stimulation as part of cunnilingus or some other form of direct clitoral stimulation. Some sex manuals recommend beginning with a gentler, less focused stimulation of the labia and the whole genital area. The tip, blade, or underside of the tongue may be used, as can the nose, chin, teeth and lips. Movements can be slow or fast, regular or erratic, firm or soft, according to the participants’ preferences. The tongue can be inserted into the vagina, either stiffened or moving. The performing partner may also hum to produce vibration.
Cunnilingus may be accompanied by the insertion of finger(s) or a sex toy into the vagina, which allows for the simultaneous stimulation of the g-spot, and/or into the anus.
There are several positions for cunnilingus:
Missionary – the female lies on her back, with her legs spread, pulled up to her chest, on her partner or raised.
Doggy style – the female crouches on all fours, while her partner performs oral sex from behind.
Standing – the female stands facing her partner, who is either sitting or on the knees. However, in this position the clitoris is more difficult to reach and stimulate, and the female may have difficulty maintaining her balance when she is reaching orgasm because her legs quiver and shake.
Sitting – the female sits on a chair or uses some other support.
Mutual stimulation –the 69 position where both partners perform oral sex on each other at the same time.
Face-sitting – the female sits on or above the partner’s face. In this position the female has more control over her body movements and can guide her partner or auto-stimulate against the partner’s face.
There are numerous slang terms for cunnilingus, including “DATY” (for “dining at the Y”), “drinking from the furry cup”, “carpet munching”, and “muff-diving”. It is also commonly called “eating someone out”, “eating pussy” or “licking someone out”. Several common slang terms used are “giving lip”, “lip service”, or “tipping the velvet”. Older erotic literature refers to it as “gamahuching”, with some variation in the spelling.
A person who performs cunnilingus may be referred to as a “cunnilinguist”, and the phrase “cunning linguist” is also often used as a pun, implying oral skill of a different sort.
