“I take my work enormously seriously. When I do something it has to feel right. Everything has to be right. I’m not ambitious about my career, but I am ambitious with each job. I can be fairly annoying to work with. No compromises. Let’s put it this way: compromises are from hell.”
- Mads Mikkelsen
OH MY GOD secondhand embarrassment…
This is the best story ever, I swear.
This feels like a writing prompt…
i reblog this every single time
Reem Acra, Bridal, Spring 2014
I returned that spring happy. And healthy. And virile.
Cannibals have no right to be that sexy.
No, you don’t understand.
This actually happens.
We got a 16 year old boy on our unit once, because Pediatrics was full, and it’s about 1 in the morning and all the nurses are at the nurses station having a break and we’re all talking and having a laugh and then all of a sudden this kids heart monitor just goes CRAZY.
So we call the code and I grab the crash cart and about 6 of us just take off running down the hall and we bust in the room and this kid is just sitting there with his hand around his junk looking MORTIFIED.
So we just sort of backed out of the room quietly, walked calmly to the stairwell, and had a total and complete hysterical breakdown.
It was the funniest shit ever.
Omigod so many nurses have told me stories like these.
DON’T JERK OFF IN THE HOSPITAL
RAW POTATOES I MEAN WHY HAVE SEX WHEN YOU CAN EAT RAW POTATOES
NOTHING LIKE A RAW POTATO TO KILL YOUR BONER
…ok, not a religious scholar, but, if they’ve never had sex, they never consummated, so they aren’t married so far as the Church is concerned, right?
There’s also the whole “procreate to replenish the earth” thing. Aren’t religious people big on having children?
I’m a Christian and I find this completely ridiculous. Why get married if you don’t intend to “be married.” To my understanding celibacy is a good thing, if people give sex up for God. But to add marriage into the mix? That’s almost a lie.
If I may I’m going to ignore the news articule and just focus on your comment, darling. I completely understand where you’re coming from, considering that society says that a ‘normal’ relationship is about sex and romance. I would really like to answer the “Why add marriage to the mix” question.
Let’s say that you don’t have sexual attraction (you’re asexual or gray sexual) and/or you don’t feel romantic love (aromantic/gray romantic) To make this more concrete, I’ll use myself as an example. I am gray romantic; I don’t feel romantic love often. I do sometimes. I also am graysexual; I can go months, even years without anything other than masturbation and not miss it. It’s not that I don’t enjoy sex, it’s just that it’s not something that’s all that important to me. I couldn’t live without writing, but I could without sex.
So sex and romance are two factors in a marriage. They are not, however, the only factors and I think that’s where it’s important to look at what ‘being married’ is. Marriage is a partnership. It’s cuddling in bed, watching tv together, preparing meals together. It’s having someone to come home to at the end of the day, having someone to listen to you, taking trips together, celebrating holidays with. For some people it’s having children together and raising them.
Does the fact that you have all those things but when you go to bed you hold each other and don’t have sex make the whole relationship invalid? Can two people be completely devoted and committed to each other without there being bodily fluids exchanged?
The article is silly; maybe it’s fake meant to mock Christians, or maybe it’s real. I don’t know. I don’t care. But it does bring up an issue that I think is important. Society says that a relationship/marriage is only ‘real’ if it’s based on sex and love, and that makes things really difficult for people who don’t fit in the mold that society demands. Asexuals, graysexuals, aromantics, and gray romantics can still be in committed loving relationships.
Disclaimer: I see the validity of your statement, Lost, and if it were possible, I would put the “What Lost said” gif here.
But that doesn’t stop me from thinking the husband REALLY REALLY REALLY wants sex.
Because, you know, it’s a God damn raw potato.
Thank you, darling.
And the article is a fake, but I would agree that the husband wants sex in this article. And it’s as silly to tell a married couple not to have sex if they both want it as it is to tell an asexual that they must have sex.
