Hold on to what is good even if it is a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe even if it is a tree which stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do even if it is a long way from here.
Hold on to life even when it is easier letting go.
Hold on to my hand even when I have gone away from you.

Desmond Morris is a Painter?


Desmond Morris really really annoys me sometimes (ie in his assessment of tits on women). But dang. Who KNEW the man was a surrealist painter since the 1940's? That he has not five or seven book (the bestknown of course is of course 1967's "The Naked Ape"), but um, like a gazillion books he's written? Jeepers! TV shows? Sure! Not to mention that he was a lecturer in fine arts, zoo curator, a children's writer, etc etc etc? He's up to all sorts of shit. Enough for five or six careers I tell ya. Not bad for a zoologist who started with insects (like Dr. Kinsey of course).

He was just on BBC World Service overnight radio being interviewed. It is funny how these insect zoologists get into hassle talking about human sexual behaviour. I mean really, like he says, we certainly expect someone studying bugs to detail their sexual behaviour and anatomy. Same with someone studying dogs, horses, plants. Imagine a horticulturalist who didn't write about the anatomy of flowers or how the plant was pollinated? Insane.

But humans get totally freaked out when zoologists studying humans talk about OUR sexual anatomy and behaviour.

Does it make ANY sense WHATSOEVER to know more about how beans and bugs reproduce than we know about our own selves?

Oh but the MYSTERY is so important. (or call it ignorance)

One thing he brought up in the interview is that humans are one of the only animals in the world where the female does not obviously indicate (through smell, behaviour, discharge etc) when she is fertile for procreation.

In bugs or fish, or hamsters or dogs, the female is NOT receptive to sexual advances or contact from the male, nor seek it out when she is not fertile. And a male will not usually show any sexual behaviour towards the female unless she is showing signs of being "in heat" or whatever.

Now, this is MY observation. If human sexuality were for reproduction as most people proclaim, and indeed as supposedly God created sexuality for, wouldn't we be like that?

I mean WHY in heaven's name are we the only animal where the poor male (and even the female herself) cannot know "oh, if I do it NOW she's ripe to make a baby... go to it! yeah!". Does that make ANY sense if we are supposed to boink for babies? I mean, if God is so into bugs and plants and bees and cats and dogs having an obvious oestrus cycle with either a particular time of year, or a smell or behaviour like uncontrollable meowing so that the two sexes can get together then at that exact time when the eggs are ripe and the girl wants to do it, then why in heaven's name couldn't he, wouldn't he make humans the same, if that is what he wanted?

I mean, when he got to us, having made everything else living in the world, did he just forget? Did he fuck up? DId he just think... well, i'll just let the guy come onto the girl when she hasn't a hope in hell of making a baby... kind of like russian roulette? Did he just think, well, that loving Christian couple joined as one in my name wants to have a family, i'll make them have to boink and boink and boink on the offchance that they'll hit the right three days in the month?? How does that fit with Christian doctrine?

Wouldn't a proper God make her sexually unattractive, and unreceptive at other times a month? Have you ever tried to breed dogs, or hamsters when it is NOT time for her to release an egg? Dang. You gotta be careful cuz them females will rip the guy apart if she's not fertile. Yup, no temptation in the slightest to boink.

Wouldn't a proper god make her suddenly feel sexy and attractive, smell alluring to the guy etc ONLY on those three days when the ovulation was up and coming?

I mean, REALLY.

It really only becomes glaring when we hear a zoologist say we are the ONLY species who does not know when the female is fertile. Glaring. Bizarre. Aberrant. The ONLY species who boinks when they are infertile. And cannot even tell the difference.

Explain that one to me will ya.

And then go look at the man's wonky paintings.

Here is my horoscope for Saturday, January 8:

Your smile is irresistible. Your song is compelling. You could break hearts, seize power, or win your fortune. If none of these things appeal to you, make your own fun. You can always change your mind.

Well well well. So it was saturday. No wonder the coffeeshop closed at 5pm, right in the middle of me drawing my comics page. Dang. Hard to know. It seems just like every other day. Working on the comics, working on the dog gang book. Disappearing Boy came over again while I was still asleep and we had a nap and fooled around a wee bit.

What does it mean when a man shows no pulsion towards boinking? That he is actually a bee or a fish or a hamster? Who knows. At least he fools around with enthusiasm and kisses alot.

Well, back to work.
Just had to look up Desmond Morris's artwork.
