In NY, if you are a man who had sex with another man after 1977, you can't donate blood, ever.


It is important to donate blood. It helps doctors and scientists save the lives of others or help to cure diseases and viruses that still remain incurable.

There have been many mistakes where a person could die or get a terminal illness from a blood transfusion. If the blood being transfused has anything wrong with it, then the person receiving the blood will now have whatever the other person has had.

Due to all this, there is a questionnaire that must be filled out before donating blood. This questionnaire includes several questions regarding you medical background, your ethnicity and race, along with your sexual habits.

In New York State, for example, they have a list of permanent reasons. These permanent reasons list are a list of situations that you may or may not have partaken in.

If you have, it is strongly discouraged that you do not donate blood. The list includes using illegal drugs with needles, having HIV/AIDS, having Cancer, or having sex for money and/or drugs at any point in their life.

With the infections of HIV starting in the 1980’s, it is very important to watch for sexually active people after 1977. For example, if you are man and had had sex with another man after 1977, then you are ineligible to donate blood…ever!

This Mexican woman is the only known person to have ever successfully performed a C-Section on herself


C-sections are used when natural childbirth is thought to be too risky. The woman is given anesthesia because of how enormous the C-section cut is and how painful it would be otherwise.

Enter Ines Ramírez Perez: she is a peasant who lives in rural Mexico. With no medical training at all, she performed a C-section on herself and miraculously performed it successfully, keeping both her and her son alive.

In March of 2000, she had experienced 12 hours of continual pain. She then drank 3 small glasses of hard liquor and used a kitchen knife to open her abdomen.

She made a 6.7in vertical incision to the right of her navel. For comparison, a standard C-section cut is 3.9 inches and horizontal below the navel.

She spent an hour operating herself and finally found her uterus.

She took her baby boy out, cut the umbilical cord and passed out. She used clothes to bandage her uterus after regaining consciousness and sent for help. She needed some surgery because she damaged her intestines.

When asked why she did it, she said that she couldn't stand the pain and she decided if her baby was going to die, she was going to die too. However, she said she was certain God would save their lives.

There is a wild, crazy, rich, sex commune called "the purple people"


Lafayette Morehouse, previously known as More University, is an experimental community, or commune, established in 1968, on Purson Lane, Lafayette, California.

The community is known by residents in the area as "the purple people", a nickname derived from the community's characteristic use of the color purple on their buildings and on some of their vehicles.

They tell people that all the houses here are purple so that there is no mistake that one has changed realities should they wander onto their property. The purpose of the community is the research and education of the enjoyment of life, and the enrichment of life's pleasures.

Courses offered by members of the organization to the community include topics such as interpersonal communication, sensuality and sex, inter-gender relationships, individual development, among others.

Gay Slang in South Africa consists almost entirely of names of women! What's a "Dora?"


Every country, and sometimes even small regions inside of countries, have different slang words that mean different things.

In the old days, most tourists would be completely confused by someone speaking in slang without any explanation as to what those words mean. Luckily for us, WikiPedia has compiled an extensive list of slang for different countries.

Many of South African slang derives from many different linguistic traditions that can be found in South Africa. These slang words are usually referred to as Afrikanerisms.

Amazingly, the gay slang in South Africa that developed in the 1970s was almost entirely made up of the names of women.

Usually, the first letter of the woman's name matches the first letter of the intended meaning. These slang words were used to keep your homosexuality private while discussing it in public.

Here are a few examples for you: A harriet, is a hairy man. Connie means condom, Frieda means sexually frustrated, and Dora means a drink, or to be drunk.

Alexander Hamilton was the first US politician to have his career ruined by a sex scandal


Alexander Hamilton was a Founding Father of the United States, chief of staff to General Washington, one of the most influential interpreters and promoters of the Constitution, the founder of the nation's financial system, and the founder of the first American political party.

Maria Reynolds, a 23-year-old blonde, came to Hamilton’s Philadelphia residence to ask for help. Her husband, James Reynolds, had abandoned her, and as a good neighbor, Hamilton decided to help her out with his company during her times of loneliness which eventually led to an affair. This affair was able to put Alexander Hamilton at the front of a long line of American politicians forced to apologize publicly for their private behavior. (Source)
