Not on a 'Top Ten' list. And to include #43 the list would have to be the 'Top Fifty' or more.

One point missing in this. The article at Channel Mom was about the top ten positions for getting pregnant. A rather important distinction.

In that case, I'm surprised that cowgirl and reverse cowgirl make the list. In those positions, his swimmers have to fight gravity on top of all the usual obstacles.

Thanks for the clarification. I haven't seen the original article, just a newspaper paragraph intended to titillate.

But surely 9 can't be right - every teenager knows you can't get pregnant if you do it standing up ;)

Isn't the Cowgirl where the girl is on top? Not the best position for getting pregnant.

According to my son's Sex Ed. teacher back in 1970, any position that can be used to get penetration, no matter how shallow, is enough to cause pregnancy. Her recommendation was to use a condom or don't do it at all.

By the way, this was a 5th Grade class. It was in Ann Arbor, Mich.

Yes, but if you are specifically trying to get pregnant as opposed to trying to avoid pregnancy, some positions give you higher odds than others.

Sperm is very good at swimming fast, but only for very short distances, so position (penetration) matters, while gravity doesn't.

Indeed, and other urban myths. Many of them invented by horny teen boys. :)

Slightly OT (Horrors!) but, at some point in the 60's or early seventies, in certain parts of the country it was "cool" to have a box of Saran Wrap in the back window of your car. It was a lot cheaper than condoms, and I presume considered to be equally effective.

Finally - Hey guys and gals, I didn't write the article just reported a detail from it. :)

My wife was a nurse at a special ed school where many of the parents weren't much better off upstairs than the kids in the school. She'd noticed that one of the mothers was pregnant again and went to offer congratulations. The woman told her, "I don't know how it happened, I was on my knees lookin' t'other way, you cain't get pregnant that way..."

I knew a guy a long time back who tried convincing any girl that would listen that it was safe to have sex with him without a condom because he already had impregnated one girl and "you can't get another girl pregnant until after the first one gives birth". Trouble was he really believed it. He soon found out you can't get a girl pregnant after she gives you a swiftly delivered knee into the groin.

Never underestimate the power of human stupidity. After all, people voted for Hillary, didn't they? :)

Seriously though, there are some really strange ideas regarding sex and procreation out there. You know the doctor joke, what do you call women who practice the rhythm method of birth control? Mothers.

Now, while it's false that a guy at Gettysburg got shot in the balls and had the minie ball end up in a womans abdomen and made her pregnant (although that was a hell of a story), there are so many old wives tales out there still and honestly, a lot of the population around the world just isn't educated enough to know that those old wives tales ARE false. How many times have you heard of a woman cutting the ends off a roast because that's how her momma did it, and find out that it's because grandma did the same thing - only to find out that it's because grandma didn't have a big enough pan to fit the roast in the first place? Same stupid people, all the time.

It's better than nothing if you don't have access to modern birth control.

It could be considerably more effective, if it were possible to directly and precisely determine where a woman was in her menstrual cycle at any given moment. Unfortunately, the technology for that doesn't exist yet.

Being a politician gives you some power to fix the problems of your society. Even well-meaning idiots cause problems when they tweak something. Especially, when they don't understand how their tweak will affect the problems and society.

Then you have the self-absorbed idiots who are out to remake the world to their image of what is right (aka Trump and associates). They truly do not care if the public is hurt by their actions. They consider the problems they inflict on the public to be collateral damage that can't be avoided.

Isn't that the American Dream? Become ultra-rich and powerful then you can do what you want. Most of the wish-fulfillment stories on SOL depend on the protagonist becoming extremely rich and therefore entitled to privilege above and beyond Joe Public.

I expect that most of you have received a "Nigerian 419 scam" email or the earlier Chicago mafia "PLO Loan" offer. In respect of the 419 scam quite a few people have delivered the bribe money in person and been found murdered. One US man built up his business himself and then got taken for a cool US$6.5 MILLION! At least he lived to regret his greed.

Another company I knew got involved in the "sale of steel from Russia to build a hospital in the eastern USA". They could not believe it was a US$200 million fraud!

Yes, greed is a real blinder but I must give tribute to agents in the CIA London office and FBI Miami for acting fast and decisively in various similar situations

So true. For me, and I suspect you, most politicians are in office for what they can get out of it for themselves. They get the power to help the public, but most don't use it that way, unless it benefits them.

REP

@awnlee jawking

To become rich, yes. To afford to do that which you wish, yes.

Extreme wealth is power. How that power is exercised is not part of the American dream. However, the wealth generates power and that power is used. The stories on SOL define what the writer thinks they might use that power for, if they had it.

What one would like to do before gaining power is often very different from what one would do once they had the power.

According to Wikipedia,

In Christianity, the Antichrist (Greek: αντίχριστος, translit. antichristos; Hebrew: אנטיכריסט‎‎) or False Messiah (Greek: ψευδός Μεσσίας, translit. psevdós Messías; Hebrew: משיח שקר‎‎) is generally regarded as a figure of evil that will falsely claim to be the Christ (Messiah).


Sounds to me like the positions taken by most politicians. Especially when campaigning for office; although the positions usually aren't religious.

For what it's worth, my heroes usually are already rich or become rich so that they can devote their time to the point of the story. Otherwise, they would spend so much time working to support themselves and their family that there would be no story.

If that is gaining power, then so be it, but I class it as a way to make the story more interesting. That, by the way, is why so many of my Western heroes are bounty hunters--they can support themselves while advancing the story.

I kept getting feedback on my original "Catalyst" series (as the protagonist's health started to fail), asking why he didn't start an exercise program. The simple answer was, since he kept changing locations, dedicating specific times for him to exercise cut into what I could show him doing, and required separate, largely non-productive story sequences (i.e. they wouldn't necessarily advance the plot).

Anytime a character has job or time requirements, it cuts into their ability to react to events. If a kid is still in school, there's an easy solution, as that's their main socializing time and accounts for their conflicts and romantic entanglements. However, no one wants to read about filling out job applications or serving up burgers in a fast-food joint.

It was many, many moons ago - but I actually did that once.

I had a lot of code I was working on at home for a private project when a client said they wanted something done, and I realised 80% of the code I had would do about 90% of what they wanted. Copy, minor changes, clean, compile and check - voila, weeks of work done in one day from the customer's viewpoint I did bill for all the many hours I'd done on it over the previous months. But that was an odd, and not often see, situation.

Remember that knocking the hell out of a golf or base ball is a job whilst trying to put the other foot ball player also is a paid career so include most sports stories. Then you get the politicians (including the one whose President gets killed in 11/9) who think that they have a job (even if the rest of us think otherwise)
