In 1866, the French artist Gustave Courbet created the erotic oil-on-canvas painting L’Origine du monde (“The Origin of the World”). It features a close-up view of the genitals and abdomen of a faceless woman lying on a bed with her legs spread apart. The Ottoman diplomat Halil Şerif Pasha commissioned this artistic work. This work of art is now considered a masterpiece.
Courbet’s favourite model at the time was a young woman named Joanna Hiffernan. She was the lover of the American painter a friend of Courbet. In all, Courbet did four portraits of Joanna. She was perhaps the model for L’Origine du monde.
On May 29, 2014 Deborah de Robertis, a Luxembourgian performance artist wearing a gold sequined dress, came to the Musée d’Orsay in Paris. She walked up to Gustav Courbet’s painting “The Origin of the World,” and plopped down in front of the painting. She raised her dress, spread her thighs, and publicly exposed her vaginal lips.
Deborah’s intention was to re-enact the famous painting of Gustav Courbet, but with an open, exposed vagina in contrast to the closed vaginal lips presented in Courbet’s piece. She called her performance “Mirror of Origin.”
Eventually, police officers escorted Deborah from the premises. After the incident, two museum guards filed complaints of sexual exhibitionism against her.
The administrators of the Musée d’Orsay in a statement said it was a typical case of disrespecting the museum’s rules.
Deborah de de Robertis disagreed with the museum administration’s accusations. She explained to the German language Luxembourgish daily newspaper Luxemburger Wort:
“If you ignore the context, you could construe this performance as an act of exhibitionism, but what I did was not an impulsive act. There is a gap in art history, the absent point of view of the object of the gaze. In his realist painting, the painter shows the open legs, but the vagina remains closed. He does not reveal the hole, that is to say, the eye. I am not showing my vagina, but I am revealing what we do not see in the painting, the eye of the vagina, the black hole, this concealed eye, this chasm, which, beyond the flesh, refers to infinity, to the origin of the origin.”
Deborah says she had performed this piece, “Mirror of Origin,” more than once in the same museum without causing any hysterical scene.

A woman of worth is the crown of her husband,
but a disgraceful one is like rot in his bones.
– Proverbs 12:4
The presence of near and dear ones, reception parties – large or small, and honeymoons, etc., most certainly enhance the pleasures of the occasion and the joy of a wedding.
But what is the ultimate goal of a marriage from a man’s viewpoint?
Universally, all men wish for a perfect wife. But what does one mean by a “perfect wife”? What are the qualities needed to be an ideal spouse? Many women do not know about it though most of the qualities of a perfect wife are already built into them and develops as she grows up.
In India, Neeti Saara or Neeti Sastra is a popular collection of morals written by Baddena, a 13th century Telugu poet, believed to be a Chola prince named Bhadra Bhupalan.
Baddena sums the six noble virtues an ideal wife should have in a verse as:
‘కార్యేషు దాసి, కరణేషు మంత్రి, భోజ్యేషు మాతా, రూపేచ లక్ష్మీ, శయనేషు రంభ, క్షమయా ధరిత్రీ… and so on.
“Karyeshu Dasi, Karaneshu Manthri, Bhojeshu Mata, Shayaneshu Rambha, Roopeshu lakshmi, Kshamayeshu Dharitri, Shat dharmayukta, Kuladharma Pathni‘
1. Karyeshu Dasi: Work like a maidservant.
Should serve her husband like a maidservant.
2. Karaneshu Mantri: Advice like a minister.
Counsel her husband like a minister to deal with various problems that confront him.
3. Bhojeshu Mata: Feed like a mother.
Cook his food and feed him like a mother.
4. Shayaneshu Ramba: Please in bed likeRambha.
Satisfy her husband in bed like the heavenly courtesan Rambha, unrivalled in the art of seduction and making love.
5. Roopeshu Lakshmi: Beautiful like Goddess Lakshmi.
Maintain her beauty like Goddess Lakshmi (and show it to him only and not to other males).
6. Kshmayeshu Dharitri: Be patient like Earth.
Endure all stress and pain and be patient like Mother Earth.
Shat dharma yuktah Kula dharma Patni: A woman who has these six virtues is a good housewife.
This is a tall order! I do not think any woman in the 21st century would qualify as a perfect wife by meeting these six criteria.
In this age of sex equality, the women argue that these verses written by a man are chauvinistic. What will happen if a woman expects the following six qualities in a man?
1. Bhogeshu Raja: Be rich like a king.
2. Vachaneshu Rama: Honest like Lord Rama.
3. Chaturasya Krishna: Intellectually smart like Lord Krishna.
4. Dhairyeshu Karna: Courageous like Karna.
5. Roopecha Indra: Handsome like Lord Indra.
6. Kaameshu Madana: Romantic like Madana Kamarajan.
Shatdharmayuktha manadharma Ramana: A man who has these six virtues is the dear husband.
If you are a man, do you think you can qualify as a perfect husband possessing these six qualities?

If the man gaping at a woman’s cleavage is handsome, she will coyly say: “He is audacious!,” if not she would retort: “He is a pervert!”
If the woman with an eyeful cleavage pays attention to a man, he will chuckle and say: “She is sexy!,” if not he would riposte: “She is a whore!”
Cleavage, anatomically known as the intermammary cleft or the intermammary sulcus, is the space between a woman’s breasts lying over the sternum.
From time immemorial, women’s breasts are synonymous with feminineness. Invariably, well-endowed women often use cleavage to physically attract and sexually lure others (mainly men). They accentuate their cleavage by wearing garments with low necklines, alluring evening attire, flimsy lingerie and revealing swimwear. Thus, they find sadistic pleasure in kindling jealousy in other less-endowed women.
Most men derive erotic pleasure when their female companions display their cleavage with aesthetic effect. However, a few envious men, mainly companions of slim flat-chested women, resort to branding the copious women as flirts and seductresses.
In western societies, opinions differ about how much cleavage exposure is acceptable in public. In many cases, though displaying cleavage is permissible, it may be prohibited by dress codes set by churches, schools, and workplaces, where flagrant exposure of any part of the female breast might be considered inappropriate, and a woman who dares to show her nipples or areolae is almost always considered immodest, lewd, and indecent.
When it comes to cleavages, former British Home Secretary Jacqui Smith, former US Senator Hillary Clinton, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Vera Lengsfeld, the Conservative Christian Democratic Union candidate for Berlin’s Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg district gained attention on the international political front for wearing low-cut blouses revealing just the slightest hint of cleavage.
Former British Home Secretary Jacqui Smith
Jacqui Smith, a member of the British Labour Party was appointed Home Secretary in Gordon Brown’s first Cabinet reshuffle of June 28, 2007. Just one day into her new job bombs were found in London and a terrorist attack took place in Glasgow the following day.
Jacqui Smith drew attention for wearing a revealing black top under her tightly fitting white jacket. It caused a stir as other MPs struggled to concentrate on the security threat under discussion.
Her attire prompted the House of Commons wags to wisecrack as “Weapons of mass distraction.”
Former US Senator Hillary Clinton
On July 20, 2007, Washington Post published an article written by Pulitzer Prize winner Robin Givhan in its Fashion section titled “Hillary Clinton’s Tentative Dip Into New Neckline Territory.” Givhan wrote:
There was cleavage on display Wednesday afternoon on C-SPAN2. It belonged to Sen. Hillary Clinton.
She was talking on the Senate floor about the burdensome cost of higher education. She was wearing a rose-colored blazer over a black top. The neckline sat low on her chest and had a subtle V-shape. The cleavage registered after only a quick glance. No scrunch-faced scrutiny was necessary. There wasn’t an unseemly amount of cleavage showing, but there it was. Undeniable.
The Washington Post’s editorial writer, Ruth Marcus, criticized Robin Givhan’s article. She wrote that Robin Givhan “dissected” Hillary Clinton “for showing cleavage.” Marcus added, “Might I suggest that sometimes a V-neck top is only a V-neck top? As a person of cleavage, I’d guess that Clinton’s low-cut shirt simply reflected a few centimeters of sartorial miscalculation, not a deliberate Fashion statement.”
Another Washington Post columnist, Dana Milbank, also seemed to distance himself from the Givhan article during a July 26 appearance on MSNBC News Live.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel
German Chancellor Angela Merkel wore a glamorous and impressive blue décolletage with a blue bolero shawl designed by Anna von Griesham while chatting with Jens Stoltenberg, prime minister of Norway, at the opening of the Olso Opera House on April 12, 2008. Mr Stoltenberg maintained crucial, and diplomatic, eye contact with his guest at the inauguration of the cultural landmark.
On April 14, 2008, Gawker, a media gossip website published a page titled “German Chancellor Angela Merkel not Afraid to Show Her Breastesses” written by Shea. The writer wrote:
“For my upcoming vacation in Germany, I decided to study up on some of its elected leaders. What was discovered about Chancellor Angela Merkel? She’s not afraid to show a little cleavage during a night out at the Opera! Click for it… if you dare.
Gawker welcomed commentators to make light of the German leader’s outfit with quips ranging from the flippant: “Deutschland boober alles” to the politically slanted: “Imagine. A female head of state okay with being a woman.“
This photo of Chancellor Angela Merkel provided enough fodder for the media around the world. The media focused on the German leader’s appearance. Unflattering photos of the chancellor wearing a peach-colored dress with sweat stains under her arms at the 2005 Bayreuth festival were widely circulated.
In 2006, the British tabloid The Sun published photos of Merkel changing into a bathing suit while on vacation in Italy, giving its article the headline “I’M BIG IN THE BUMDESTAG,” in a reference to the Bundestag, home of the German federal parliament. The article and photos solicited an indignant response from a number of German publications, which felt the country’s leader deserved more respect.
During a tough political campaign for the 2009 general election, Vera Lengsfeld (61), the Conservative Christian Democratic Union candidate for Berlin’s Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg district, used pictures of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and herself in low-cut dresses. To draw attention to serious election issues she put up 750 provocative campaign posters accompanied by the slogan “Wir haben mehr zu bieten” (“We Have More to Offer”). Lengsfield bought the rights to use the picture of Merkel but did not seek the Chancellor’s permission. However, the posters had a positive impact.
To her critics Lengsfield said: “It is ridiculous to suggest that I am being sexist or antifeminist. I am a woman and I am proud of that.”
It is said that a child’s fascination with breasts starts from the moment it isbreastfed as a baby. The odor of milk emanating from a mother’s breast draws her infant towards her. The basic instinct in any living being is to seek safety from the surrounding environment. Hence, the child too finds comfort by nestling on its mother’s breasts. It finds not only nourishment while suckling the mother’s breast, but also the mother’s unconditional love.
If this assumption is true, then what about the children who were notbreastfed?
Many bottle-fed children, especially those whose mothers were buxom are just as fascinated with breasts as those who were breast-fed.
When children, whether breastfed or bottle-fed grow up the embedded image on their brain of their mother’s breast surfaces sporadically as sexual fantasies. They eye women with large breasts and quite often become obsessed with them.
Women, whether breastfed or bottle-fed, do not react the same way as men because breasts naturally grow on their own in women. However, studies show that breastfed women have a healthier opinion of their own breasts in their adulthood.
Sigmund Freud, a firm supporter of the nature argument, believed that sexual drives are instinctive. He viewed sexuality as the central source of human personality. He said that a child’s first erotic object is the mother’s breast.

The American news satire website NATIONAL REPORT claim and labels itself as “America’s #1 Independent News Team”. But it is better known for pushing the boundaries of good taste than making its readers laugh. On November 2, 2013, it published a post titled “The Assam Rape Festival In India Begins This Week.“
Earlier on January 8, 2013, the SUPER OFFICIAL NEWS posted the article titled “The Punjab Rape Festival In India Begins This Week“. The NATIONAL REPORT just copied that article word-for-word. The only change was in the title – the Indian state “Assam” was substituted in lieu of “Punjab” to read: “The Assam Rape Festival In India Begins This Week.“
The article claiming a non-existent, wishful (in the mind of the author) vulgar event taking place in India was a spoof by a person writing under the pseudonym Jimmy Rustling.
The social media was abuzz with reactions to the article. So far, it has been shared more than 312,000 times on Facebook and around 3,000 times on Twitter. It has besmirched the image of Assam and has sparked widespread protests in the state.
The article does not display any disclaimer saying it is a spoof. However, there is a general Disclaimer page on the NATIONAL REPORT website:
DISCLAIMER: National Report is a news and political satire web publication, which may or may not use real names, often in semi-real or mostly fictitious ways. All news articles contained within National Report are fiction, and presumably fake news. Any resemblance to the truth is purely coincidental . The views expressed by writers on this site are theirs alone and are not reflective of the fine journalistic and editorial integrity of National Report. Advice given is NOT to be construed as professional. If you are in need of professional help (and you may be if you are on this page), please consult a professional. National Report is intended for a matureaudience and not for children under the age of 18.
Linked to the “Rape Festival” articles in SUPER OFFICIAL NEWS and NATIONAL REPORT is a common website Giveindia.org that looks like a genuine Indian website seeking donations for the welfare of Indian women.
At the end of the article there is the following statement:
For more information about the festival or if you would like to participate, please call the 24-hour India Rape Festival hotline at (785) 273-0325.
I googled and found that the given hot line number (785) 273-0325 belongs to Fred W. Phelps Sr., an American pastor heading the Westboro Baptist Church, an independent Baptist church based in Topeka, Kansas in 1955. Address: Westboro Baptist Church, Address: 3701 SW 12th St, Topeka, KS 66604, United States.
According to Phelps, basically everyone, who isn’t a part of their “religion” and “church” is doomed and will go to hell.
Phelps’ group protests all over the United States at Gay funerals and Soldiers funerals. The first Amendment under the U.S. Constitution protects them to do these despicable hate acts.
Although the “church” started as only hating “fags” they have now moved on to hate Australians, Canadians, Jews, Swedish, and even the Amish. To picket hey use signs such as: “God Hates Fags“, “Fags Hate God“, “America Is Doomed“, “Soldiers Die God Laughs“, “Thank God for 9/11“, etc.
Many people in USA, India and other countries believed the contents of the article as a true fact even though no such festival exists or existed in any part of India. And the article was widely shared even now via social media. It has been blindly copied and posted in sundry websites around the world without verifying the facts, thereby tarnishing the image of India.
Here is an example of this spurious, apocryphal copying:
On November 6, 2013, Patricia Kahill, posted the article verbatim without verifying facts in UGOnews with the following introduction:
Reports from National Report say that this week in Indian men readied themselves to begin celebrating the annual Assam Rape festival. This festival sees that every unmarried girl between the age of 7-16 who has not been hidden is raped. (sic)
This article published in UGOnews evoked many scathing comments. I have reproduced some of them here:
Prashant Moni · Textiles
It is very sad that some mentally sick peoples are publishing the scenario of a region in a very bad manner. To be make clear that there is NO ANY SUCH FESTIVAL in Assam or even in any other region in India. This is nothing but an output of mentally sick person (s). (sic)
Rajeev Gohain · J.B College, Jorhat
What a rubbish story. The picture is from a festival from Uttar Pradesh, Tamilnadu is lakhs km far. The names are not Assamese. The creator of this story is that the psychic who is dreaming about this type of festival , so that he also can go and participate it.. I am requesting to whole the world not to believe this type of fake story, but come and enjoy a beautiful green Assam famous for One horned Rhino and Tea.
Ashish Das · Online Entrepreneur and Blogger
Stupid website… research before publishing.
Manashwi Sharma · Student
This is absolutely NOT TRUE. There is no such freaking festival celebrated in Assam or in any part of India. I Request everyone NOT TO BELIEVE whatever is written on this website. This is totally a FALSE NEWS.
Prasanta Dutta · Guwahati College
I am from Assam and 33 year’s old, Its a is totally a Stupid news. Women is always respected in Assam more than other part of the world. (sic)
Sukanya Goswami · Dibrugarh University
this is unacceptable!!! shame on your mentality!!! u people published such a wrong thing about a region without knowing any thing!!! shame on u!!!! go and research before doing such stupid things!!!! u people dont knw any thing ,never heard about assam and but ready to publish nonsense about it!!! stupid website!!!! (sic)
Shreeja V Shetty · Software Tester at GlowTouch Technologies
Well this news is surely not true. India is a lovely country. But action should be taken on the one who wrote this! So that nobody repeats such nonsense again!
Lekha Borah · Works at Working as a Freelance Photographer
Want to make it clear that there is no this kind of \\”DIRTY FESTIVAL IN ASSAM”// or in INDIA. This is nothing but a fake RUMOUR of some mentally sick persons.Very sad and very shameful thing happened made by psycho people. (sic)
Slickèr Qalie Ndlovu · Member, Organisation of African Youth (Zimbabwe) people stop lying please (sic)
On November 12, 2013, Patricia Kahill posted another article in UGOnews titled “The Controversial Assam Rape Festival” in which she says:
Last week we reported about the Assam rape festival a controversial and satire story that was first published by National Report a USA based website, lead to a number of comments on our site from the Indian community.
According to Lets Gist the point of the story was activism, to educate people about what is going on in India on a daily basis, because a lot of people don’t know.
Hindustan Times received a statement from Tarun Gogoi, Chief Minister of Assam immediately that said:
“the fraudulent and extremely unethical article about the completely fictitious festival is an act of serious disrespect and total disregard shown towards the humble and unsuspecting people of our beautiful state of Assam. The writer of such a piece of pure evil is not fit for human society.”
Bharat Narah, press adviser to Gogoi, told Gulf News:
“The Assam Rape Festival article is not at all humorous. It is distasteful, unethical, abominable, despicable and must be abhorred by all sections of society. We have taken up a suo moto case against the website and the author of the piece. It is a highly sensitive matter which cannot be ignored. We are assessing all our options and are in touch with the Cyber Cell of the Police Department.
Regardless of race, culture, or nationality, any decent and moral person should be offended by this filth. Media plays a very critical role in forming opinions. If media will start acting so naively, then the responsibility of spreading information through media should be taken away. We Indians know that this news is totally fake, but people in other parts of the world are getting the wrong message about our nation. This mischief by the media should be dealt with very strictly.“
The comment by Nancy Powell, US ambassador to India, when she addressed the students of Xavier Institute of Social Science (XISS) in Ranchi, on November 19, 2013, is an epiphany for the state of affairs now prevailing in India.
When a student asked: “Why aren’t American students coming to India for studies?“
She replied: “The concern for personal security and perceived increased danger to women as a result of the rape cases was perhaps a factor in US students’ decision regarding study in India.”

Re-posted from Impressions (Originally posted on November 21, 2013)
On January 8, 2013, an American website SUPER OFFICIAL NEWS posted an article titled: “The Punjab Rape Festival In India Begins This Week,” written by a person using the pseudonym ‘Jimmy Rustling‘.
Since January 2013, this article, camouflaged as a news item, circulated through blogs, email, and social media. Its claim that the tradition of the Punjab Rape Festival dates back to 43 BC is utter nonsense. Factually, there is no such event as the Punjab Rape Festival. The story was simply concocted by the psychotic Jimmy Rustling.
This obviously false story caused a great deal of apprehension and dismay after it spread through the media. Not realizing that there is no such event and never ever was, many decried the imaginary event and wanted it stopped.
The comments for the post “The Punjab Rape Festival In India Begins This Week” show that the average follower of SUPER OFFICIAL NEWS is an ignoramus who could be manipulated to believe any unauthenticated absurd news, as he would when he reads the religious scriptures, mainly because it is in print.
As usual, pranksters too joined in and added fuel by defending the festival and stating they were looking forward to participating in the hypothetical event.
This is so messed up! I demand justice!
M Shelat: I agree. Something needs to be done to stop this!
Mark Dauglas Znenitz: I would go to this festival. Probably not participate but I would go
Eva Monreli: They are not even considering that one can get viral diseases (Like AIDS) from these people. This should be stopped!
Holly Marys: I have many many many MANY demons in me that need uncorking. May I, as an American and not Punjabi, participate so that I may perhaps be rid of my demons once and for all?
Catherine: Sick people! This is 2013 for God’s sake. Stop these archaic Men form doing injustice to the girl child.
The above photo of Naga sadhus at the Kumbh mela was used along with the ‘rape festival’ story. This photo of Naga sadhus gathered at the Allahabad Maha Kumbh Mela 2013, deceives readers into believing that the Hindu sadhus were rushing to rape unmarried girls in the age group 7 to 16 years.
Sharell Cook, an Australian traveller researching distinctive cultures from her early 20s, initially visited India in the year 2000 and found it a total assault on her senses, confronting, but then oddly inspiring and captivating. Even today, this impression about India has not changed. Even now, Sharell is residing in cosmopolitan Mumbai where she writes full-time while learning Hindi. This is her impression about the Allahabad Maha Kumbh Mela:
“The Kumbh Mela in India is as mesmerizing as it is spiritual. This ancient northern Indian festival is a meeting of mystical minds. The largest religious gathering in the world, the Kumbh Mela brings Hindu holy men together to discuss their faith and disseminate information about their religion. It’s attended by millions of people each day.”
Many Indians living in the United States called for the removal of the article from the website and wanted authorities to take punitive action against the author and the website that published it.
In late January 2013, the writer. Paul Horner alias Jimmy Rustling, responding to the angry calls posted the following message on his Facebook Page:
I’ve been getting emails from people saying that I should remove my story entitled, “The Punjab Rape Festival In India Begins This Week.”
The point of the story was an activism piece to educate people about what is going on over there on a daily basis, because a lot of people don’t know. I read everything I can get my hands on and every day there’s another story about another horrible rape or murder of a young girl in India…. usually where the guy gets off, not being punished, or worse, where the victim is forced to marry her attacker.
So I wrote up the most exaggerated, ridiculous thing I could think of… it gets people to pass around the story and then question what’s going on over there if they didn’t already know. A simple Google search of “Punjab rape” brings up 100+ different stories of young girls getting raped, murdered, forced to marry the man who raped them… it’s disgusting.
Anyway, that’s the point of the story and I’m not pulling the article.
In an email to hoax-slayer.com the author wrote:
One of the other MAJOR factors for doing the story was collecting money for the women of India for schooling, clothes, help in leaving abusive situations. So, a few months ago I added this to the bottom of the story:
WANT TO HELP THE WOMEN IN INDIA? THEN DO SOMETHING!
Click here to learn more.
I checked out that charity thoroughly. They are 100% legit giving 90-95% of collected funds to the cause.
To keep the controversial “Rape Festival” spark alive, SUPER OFFICIAL NEWS on May 7, 2013, posted yet another spoof story in bad taste written by Jimmy Rustling titled: “Surprise Winner At This Years Punjab Rape Festival.“
Once again the stupid readers of this post came out with absurdities:
Sarah H: They give awards to men in India for raping woman? WOW.
Samantha: This is just disgusting! They don’t arrest them for rape but they give them awards??? SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE ABOUT THIS!
Lena: Govt must come forward to support RAPE FESTIVAL. This is the only world class entertainment ,where every one love to participate. Tourist visits to India ,will generate collosal amount for the nation. Allow everyone to participate,give them FREE CHANCE to win award. GOVT must provide FREE VISA Access. Let people of the world to enjoy and feel free to taste of RAPE. RAPE reduces heat,its good for health and for the growth of man kind. C.M needs to be changed,since he wants to snatch this freedom from people of punjab, which is against the will of the nation. Democracy in India should not tarnished at any cost.
Readers of SUPER OFFICIAL NEWS made these comments despite the following image posted proudly on its site on the page “Super Official Awards.”
The name Jim Rustling is the pseudonym of an author named Paul Horner, a Staff Writer for NATIONAL REPORT who claims to have won numerous awards for journalism including a Peabody Award and a Pulitzer Prize.
How authentic are the writings of Jimmy Rustling a.k.a. Paul Horner?
You will find the answer if you read the article titled “President Obama Presents Paul Horner With Super Universe Ultimate Award For Excellence In Winning The Game” posted on November 5, 2012 in SUPER OFFICIAL NEWS.
I understand that “Fred Dursk” is another pseudonym of Paul Horner. Now, I wonder how many other pseudonyms this person has, and whether the name “Paul Horner” itself is real, or is it another pseudonym of some other person hiding behind these names.
A disclaimer right at the bottom of the posts in SUPER OFFICIAL NEWS reads as follows:

This entire site is pretty much just a resume containing a collection of my writings and such for the off chance that someone like The Onion or The Daily Show ever happens to stop by.

Their dating came to an end on Saturday, September 6, 2014, when Navratilova proposed marriage to Lemigova on the big screen of Arthur Ashe Stadium between the US Open men’s semi-finals.
When Navratilova popped the question, a teary Lemigova said, “yes,” and the crowd cheered loudly.
Later, Navratilova said:
“I was very nervous. It came off. She [Lemigova] said yes. It was kind of an out-of-body experience. You’ve seen people propose at sporting events before, in movies, in real life. Here, it was happening to me. It was like I was watching myself do it.”
During 1981 US Open finals Navratilova lost to Tracy Austin. The crowd gave her a long ovation as the runner-up. Later, Navratilova said that it was the first time she felt accepted as a new American citizen and a gay woman.
This time the tennis legend said:
“What’s been amazing is the outpouring of support from everywhere, including when I was walking through the stadium afterwards with people saying, ‘Congratulations,’ people on the street saying, ‘Congratulations,’ and the Twitter outpouring has been unbelievably supportive.”
Today, in the United States, gay couples can marry in 19 states and in the District of Columbia. Navratilova said she and Lemigova prefer to get married in Florida, where they live. Last month, a federal judge in Florida ruled that the state’s ban on gay marriage is unconstitutional, but Florida officials are appealing.
By the way, Julia Lemigova is not the first lover of Martina Navratilova.

The Italian visual and concrete poetry movement of the 1970s, reacted against mass consumerism and exploitation of women, especially in advertising. The above painting by Lucia Marcucci titled “Captivus” is a powerful punning image. It shows the genitals of the artist’s own body superimposed by a small erect penis. This particular penis is just iconic. It carries the self-important Latin inscription, “hic habitat felicitas” meaning “here dwells happiness”. Yet, the dripping word captivus in the above image remind us of blood, and of the more extreme and equally mythical male nightmare “vagina dentata” meaning “the vagina with teeth”.
The idea of a penis getting stuck in a vagina might bring to mind the film Teeth released in 2007. It is an absurd horror film about a young abstinent teenager, a stranger to her own body. She discovers she has a physical advantage when she becomes the object of male violence. Her vagina has teeth — described in folk tales as vagina dentata.
During sexual intercourse it is normal for the muscles of a woman’s vagina to clamp on to the penis of her partner. There are rare instances when the vaginal muscles, exert an unusual firmer grip on the penis. In this condition, withdrawing the penis from the vagina, even after the man loses his erection, becomes impossible. This condition known as “penis captivus” occurs more often in animals than it does in humans. We often see animals, particularly dogs, stuck together after sex.
“When the penis is within the vagina, it becomes increasingly engorged,” Dr. John Dean, clinical director of gender and sexual medicine for the Devon Partnership NHS Trust in southwest England, recently told BBC Health Check. He further said:
“The muscles of the woman’s pelvic floor contract rhythmically at orgasm. While those muscles contract, the penis becomes stuck and further engorged within [the vagina] until the muscles relax. Blood can flow out of the penis again, the penis starts to go down after orgasm, and the man can withdraw.”
Though many medical authorities pass penis captivus off as a mild occurrence, there have been reports of more severe cases, but the occurrence is rare.
Iwan Bloch, in his 1908 book The Sexual Life of our Time, recounted a case of penis captivus. In a quiet corner of the docks in Bremen, Germany, a woman experienced an “involuntary spasm” during sexual intercourse with her lover, a dock labourer. Her vagina trapped her lover’s cock and the couple could not separate. A great crowd gathered and watched until the couple was taken to a hospital. After administering Chloroform to the woman, her vaginal muscles relaxed, and they were freed.
In an article published in the British Medical Journal in 1979, Dr. F. Kräupl Taylor reviewed the literature on penis captivus. He concluded:
“almost all the cases mentioned in medical publications and in textbooks are based on hearsay and rumour, two papers published by nineteenth-century German gynaecologists — Scanzoni (1870) and Hildebrandt (1872) — who had personally dealt with cases of the condition leave no doubt about the reality of this unusual symptom”, which, however, “is so rare that it is often regarded nowadays as no more than a prurient myth”.
(Read my article “Penis Captivus: Part 1 – From Ancient times to the 19th Century“.)
Finding no later reports with proper authentication, Kräupl Taylor surmised:
“[Penis captivus] does not seem to have occurred in the past 100 years or so. If there had been, during that time, a case of penis captivus that needed medical intervention or admission to hospital it would have been eagerly reported in a medical journal with as much detail and evidence as possible.”
A few months later, Dr. Brendan Musgrave published a brief letter in the British Medical Journal in response to Dr. Kräupl Taylor’s article. He recalled that in 1947 when he was a houseman at the Royal Isle of Wight County Hospital he had seen a case of this rare condition. Here is the letter as published in BMJ with a footnote penned by the editor:
British Medical Journal
5 January 1980
Penis Captivus Has Occurred
Sir, — In reply to Dr. F. Kraupl Taylor’s article on penis captivus (20 October, p 977), which was recently brought to my attention, there can be no doubt but that I have seen a case of this seemingly rare condition.
The year was 1947 and the case occurred when I was a houseman at the Royal Isle of Wight County Hospital. I can distinctly remember the ambulance drawing up and two young people, a honeymoon couple I believe, being carried on a single stretcher into the casualty department. An anaesthetic was given to the female and they were discharged later the same morning.
In view of the number of letters that have recently been written on this subject I rang my old friend Dr. S. W. Wolfe, who is now in general practice in Bridgwater, and who was the other houseman at the hospital at the time. He confirmed my story, his exact words being, “I remember it well.”

*** Although the correspondence on this subject was closed we are making an exception for this one letter as it reports personal experience of a case.– Ed, BMJ.
A medical journal report published in 1884 has been often cited as a case of penis captivus by those unaware that it was a hoax, even in the 20th century. Read my article “Penis Captivus: Part 2 – The Great Medical Hoax“.
In 1975, Dottoressa Moor wrote her memoir “An Impossible Woman: The Memories of Dottoressa Moor of Capri” (ed. Greene, 1975). She recounts how she was once urgently called to the Hotel Eden-Paradiso in Anacapri, Italy.
“And there I found a young German girl, in the bathtub in a pool of blood. She begged me to do what I could to help her as she was bleeding to death from a tear in the vagina”.
The girl had been having sex with a man and her vagina had clamped tightly around his swollen penis. In freeing his penis, the man had inflicted a bleeding tear and a deep wound. He had then fled.
After Moor had stopped the bleeding, she and a colleague she had summoned stitched the girl up. Dottoressa Moor adds, “These cases are not as rare as you think.”
Dottoressa Moor also mentioned, though only as hearsay, a case of penis captivus in Lucerne, Switzerland. It involved a Swiss girl during the war. It resulted in “dreadful injuries” when the man panicked: “they had got stuck inside each other. It needed two or three doctors to help to undo them.”
In 2012, a case of penis captivus that occurred in Kenya, was videographed and is known as the “2012 Kenyan incident”. Read my article “Magun, the Legendary African Curse!” and see the video.
Recently, in Nigeria, the hotel staff found the lifeless bodies of a man and a woman stuck together due to penis captivus. The woman was still in her ‘Hijab’. A packet of sex-enhancement tablet, Viagra, was lying beside the dead couple. Read my article “Magun, the Legendary African Curse!“.
Writer and director Simonee Chichester created the following short film titled “Captivus”. It is an unfortunate, but unnervingly possible situation of a love triangle complicated by penis captivus. Hannah walks in to discover her girlfriend Kate and her ex-husband are bound to each other by penis captivus.

During sexual intercourse it is normal for the muscles of a woman’s vagina to clamp on to the penis of her partner. There are rare instances when the vaginal muscles, exert an unusual firmer grip on the penis. In this condition, withdrawing the penis from the vagina, even after the man loses his erection, becomes impossible. This condition is known as “penis captivus“. It is a form of “vaginismus“. Some consider penis captivus as a mythical medical condition.
The following story shows that even medical men do not resist the temptation to pull another’s legs. It is also a lesson that demonstrates how easy it is to fool even scientific minds.
It began with a clash of personality between Dr. Theophilus Parvin and Sir William Osler. They were both editorial members of the Philadelphia Medical News.
Dr. Theophilus Parvin was a well-known American obstetrician and gynaecologist. In 1883, he held the Chair of Obstetrics and Gynaecology in the Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. As one of the four editorial writers for the Philadelphia Medical News, he was responsible for obstetrics and gynecological matters.
Dr. William Osler (later Sir William Osler), then 35-years-old, left his native Canada to take on the position of professor of medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. He served as one of the four editorial writers for the Philadelphia Medical News. In this capacity, he associated with Theophilus Parvin, and found him a snob.
At that time, Parvin published an editorial titled, “An Uncommon Form of Vaginismus.” It was published in the November 29, 1884 issue of the Philadelphia Medical News. Vaginismus is the painful, spasmodic contraction of the sphincter vaginae. Parvin’s editorial quoted from the Roman author Horace and ended with an 18th century reference to penis captivus.
After reading Parvin’s editorial, Osler felt that Parvin had used his influence as a board member to publish an article of no real importance to the general medical community. Osler decided to embarrass Parvin by writing a phony letter using his nom de plume “Egerton Y. Davis”.
The scheming Osler wrote his phony letter in Philadelphia. He then posted it to a friend in Ontario, Canada. From there it was re-posted to Parvin in Philadelphia.
The letter from the so-called Egerton Y. Davis described in detail an eyewitness modern account of “penis captivus”.
Parvin, delighted to receive the letter, dated 4th December, 1884 and postmarked Montreal, Canada, saw it as a case-report substantiating his thesis. It was a phenomenon, heretofore undocumented, of human couples unable to release themselves after coitus. He got this letter published immediately on December 13, 1884, under correspondence in the Philadelphia Medical News. The letter follows:
The reading of an admirably written and instructive editorial in the Philadelphia Medical News of 24th November 24 on forms of vaginismus, has reminded me of a case which bears out, in an extraordinary way, the statements therein contained. When in practice at Pentonville, England, I was sent for, about 11 P.M., by a gentleman whom, on my arriving at his home I found in a state of great perturbation, and the story he told me was briefly as follows:
At bedtime, when going to the back kitchen to see if the house was shut up, a noise in the coachman’s room attracted his attention, and, going in, he discovered to his horror that the man was in bed with one of the maids. She screamed, he struggled, and they rolled out of bed together and made frantic efforts to get apart, but without success. He was a big, burly man, over six feet, and she was a small woman, weighing not more than ninety pounds. She was moaning and screaming, and seemed in great agony, so that after several fruitless attempts to get them apart, he sent for me. When I arrived, I found the man standing up and supporting the woman in his arms, and it was quite evident that his penis was tightly locked in her vagina, and any attempt to dislodge it was accompanied by much pain on the part of both. It was, indeed, a case “De cohesione in coitu.” I applied water, and then ice, but ineffectually, and at last sent for chloroform, a few whiffs of which sent the woman to sleep, relaxed the spasm, and released the captive penis, which was swollen, livid, and in a state of semi-erection, which did not go down for several hours, and for days the organ was extremely sore. The woman recovered rapidly and seemed none the worse.
I am sorry that I did not examine if the sphincter ani was contracted, but I did not think of it. In this case there must have been spasm of the muscle at the orifice, as well as higher up, for the penis seemed nipped low down, and this contraction, I think, kept the blood retained and the organ erect. As an instance of Iago’s “beast with two backs,” the picture was perfect. I have often wondered how it was, considering with what agility the man can, under certain circumstances, jump up, that Phineas, the son of Eleazar, was able to thrust his javelin through the man and the Midianitish woman (vide Exodus); but the occurrence of such cases as the above may offer a possible explanation.
Egerton Y. Davis
Ex. U.S. Army
4th December, 1884.
According to certain prefatory notes relating to his alter ego “Egerton Yorrick Davis, M.D., late U.S. Army, Caughnawauga, Quebec”, Osler made a belated effort to stop the publication of the above letter. He never tried to publicize his role in the hoax or to clear the record.
The spurious case report became literature. It has often been cited as a reliable medical evidence of penis captivus for nearly a hundred years by those who were unaware that it was a hoax.
Sir William Osler served for many years as Professor of Medicine at Johns Hopkins University. He was instrumental in founding the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research in New York City. Osler’s writing on urological oriented sexual topics did not end with the above cited mischievous contribution. Throughout his illustrious career, he continued to submit letters to medical journals.
In 1903, Osler’s devilish streak surfaced once again. He submitted a letter to the Boston Medical and Surgical Journal titled “Peyronie’s Disease — Strabisme du Penis“. The report was about “an old codger” who experienced “a most remarkable change in his yard.” Osler signed it as J.W. White, Jr. the name of a well-known Philadelphia urologist.
Peyronie’s Disease – Strabisme du penis
Pittsburg, Feb. 14, 1903
Mr. Editor: An old codger of about 65 years came in one day, and, casting a furtive glance about the room, shut the door with great deliberation. To my question, “What is the matter?” he replied, “Squint of the cock.” As I did not take genito-urinary cases, I advised him to consult my friend Dr. Ricord, upon which he handed me a letter, saying that his doctor had told him that I would be most interested in his case. He then told me his story. A widower for some years, he was anxious to marry again, but was afraid to do so on account of a most remarkable change in his yard. When erect it curved to one side in such a way as to form a semicircle, hopeless and useless for any practical purpose. I call it, he said, squint of the cock. Examination showed at one side at the root of the penis a firm induration about the size of a cherry, so placed as to completely fill a part of one corpus cavernosum. Of course, on erection blood filled the other corpus only, and in consequence the penis curved towards the affected side, producing the squint of which he spoke. In the works at my disposal, including one well-known manual of genito-urinary surgery, I could find no account of this singular affection, but have learned when in doubt to consult Hutchinson’s Archives of Surgery, I there found a very full account of these fibrous plaques in the corpora cavernosa, which if unilateral produce all sorts of distortions of the penis, if bilateral, impotence. Turning to another storehouse, the Dictionnaire Encylcopedique, under the article “Pénis,” I there found a very good description, but in addition, what was most interesting, the statement that in about 1765, Peyronie, a French surgeon, had described the disease as strabisme du pénis, the very term used by my old patient. There are very good illustrations of the condition in Taylor’s Manual, but in these eponymic days old Peyronie should have the credit of describing in a happy phrase a very unfortunate defect.
J. W. W., Jr.
A short time later , the real J.W. White, Jr. on recognizing the true author, countered in the same journal a charge of “plagiarism”. He detailed the telltale evidence of the identity of the true author.
These fictitious and sexual case-reports demonstrate the mischievous sense of humour that lurked behind the respectable façade of Sir William Osler, the illustrious doctor.
