Do women have wet dreams?

Sorry, Virginia, there is no Santa Claus, but women can have wet dreams or, more specifically, nocturnal orgasms — and that may be better than finding a cashmere sweater under your tree.

Alfred Kinsey, the famous sex researcher, found that nocturnal orgasms were reported by 90 percent of the men, but by less than 40 percent of the women in his studies. So common are male wet dreams that the Bible has several references to male nocturnal emissions. It doesn't, however, specifically address female nocturnal orgasms. Now we don't want to create a biblical argument on the topic, so we leave it for you to interpret.

If there be among you any man, that is not clean by reason of uncleanness that chanceth him by night, then shall he go abroad out of the camp, he shall not come within the camp.

—Deuteronomy 23:10

И гламурно, и тема молочных желез раскрыта.



Peter Tchaikovsky Nearly Loses Head!

The magnificent Russian composer Peter Tchaikovsky was yet another in the line of geniuses who sometimes came unhinged. Tchaikovsky loved to compose, but he hated to conduct. Unfortunately, conducting opportunities came up way too often for him — including the gala opening concert of Carnegie Hall in 1891. Neurotic to the core, Tchaikovsky conducted with one head firmly on top of his head, in the desperate belief that otherwise his head would fall off.

Шары, как рукописи, не горят. То есть, совсем не горят. Даже если их злонамеренно поджигать.

Хорошо, что не горят. Это избавляет от страха перед полётом.
