"Commonly misunderstood, sex-positivity is not a movement rooted in liberating what’s between the legs. Rather, it is a framework for expanding consciousness, promoting tolerance, and rebuilding human respect. It’s a tool for reimagining our bodies, pleasures, and desires as healthy, normal, and diverse. It’s an instrument for reclaiming our power, challenging shame-infesting ideologies, redefining our relationships, and fortifying our sisterhood."

Arielle Loren, The sex positive Black woman

THIS IS REALLY COOL THOUGH WE COVERED THIS IN ASTRONOMY
OK, SO
There’s this thing called tidal bulges, which are an effect of gravity. The Earth has the tidal bulge, and it’s a little like an oval shape. The moon pulls on it and that’s also why we have tides! On one side of the earth, it drags the water towards the move, and on the other, the water isn’t quite affected by the gravity, but the Earth itself is, so it’s also pulled, which makes high tide on both sides!
The bulge also affects the moon’s gravity, though, which is why it’s moving away from Earth! The bulge creates a “push” effect on the moon, which is relatively small, but enough to change the moon’s orbit into a spiral shape.
Did you know that when dinosaurs were around, there were about 200 foot tides?
SCIENCE GUYS

This stone filled with small holes is caled a ‘Skålgrube’
it is from the Bronze Age, Sweden

Skålgrube - ‘cup marks’ - are special kind of rock carvings. They have been found throughout Scandinavia, and was in older times in Sweden called ‘älvkvarnar’ - small elf grinding mills. It points toward the former has been used in a ritual context which has sacrificed food (maybe butter) in these pits for elves. It is uncertain how old this practice is and how long it has been in use

Sometimes these cup marks are plotted out in the form of star constellations, I’ve seen some examples of “Big Dipper” (Karlavagnen) and “Small dipper” (Fruvagnen/Lilla Björn) myself. At a location in Norway, there were feet marks cut into the rock about 2 meters away, facing this star constellation. Almost as if it was meant to stand at these feet marks on some certain time, to watch the “dipper” for some reason.
Further on, these cup marks have been in actual cultic use well into the 1800’s here in Sweden, at least. During times of famine, people poured butter or laid sewing needles/coins etc. into these. I regret that I don’t remember the location and exact year (late 1800’s), but in some Swedish village they had two young virgins copulate on such a rock in springtime, and afterwards let the semen run from the “you-know-where” into these cup marks. Supposedly, this led to a good harvest the same year.It was written about in Swedish Aftonbladet some 10 years ago (2003-2004 I think), by Johanne Hildebrandt. Can’t find the article in question now though…

He was and STILL IS an amazing soul, and i quite honestly yearn for the day when i’ll finally be able to meet Him beneath the falling leaves in the Place Where Autumn Never Ends…

And until then, my friends, fellow lovers of all things Peter Steele Ratajczyk, stay Negative!
