      One commentor on that article seems to agree, she says:
      //The minute I walk into the gym I have a DOORgasam. My instructor is not very motivating so I have a BOREgasam. Me and my three workout partners have a FOURgasam especially when we discuss Global Warming and then we have a MULTIPLE GOREgasam. I can never get enough so I have a MOREgasam. The 99% have POORgasams. When we become overly loud, or my pet lion is involved we have ROARgasams. The herpes crowd have SOREgasams and the extremely overweight have pants that TOREgasams.//

    I'm happy to say that the chance of the fetal homocide bill passing in our Senate is extremely low. This, at least, is just election year grandstanding. (If only the same could be said of all such bills!) There is a lot of this stuff in CO due to the presence of Focus on the Family and megachurches, but those interests don't have much sway with the Senate Dems here (or even all the Republicans, particularly some Republican women, although, again, there's election year pressure).
    What really gets me though, is that when a house committee killed our civil unions bill in committee, they justified that by pointing to a ballot measure that had failed in 2006 and said that civil unions were clearly not "the will of the people". But a fetal homocide bill, right after voters roundly rejected the idea that a fetus is a person at the polls? Now they don't care about the "will of the people". I guess the will of the people only counts when it matches the party line.

    Kind of amazing that Kegel exercises aren't mentioned once in that article on exercise and orgasm, talk about a terrible piece of journalism that unnecessarily mystifies female orgasm by ommitting the fact that it's hardly news that core exercises are linked to orgasm!
