Listed below are links to weblogs that reference America's "dry bob" (by Mitch Sisskind):


I thought dry bobs were a Chinese invention. In the Enlightened Sex Manual by David Deida, a current New Age text, Deida writes that men should not ejaculate frequently. They shd bypass ejaculation for greater pleasure. The male sexual athlete should also refrain from eating eggs, salt and meat. These foods intensify the need to ejaculate.

i believe that taoist and tantric doctrines discourage ejaculation -- but maybe it's supposed to be a choice rather than the inability which i see as characteristic of a dry bob "proprement dit."
mitch s.

Remember how in "Raging Bull" Jake LaMotta, when in training for a big fight, is not supposed to have sex with his wife? As though the man's sperm were to his power and strength what long hair is to Samson's.

Meatloaf and Pavarotti - now THAT's poetry!!

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
