For Immediate Release
The Third Annual Orgasm for Peace
WASHINGTON - The organizers of the Global Orgasm, evolutionary behaviorists Donna Sheehan and Paul Reffell, would like everyone to synchronize their greatest surge of physical and spiritual power on the Solstice, December 21st between the hours of 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Greenwich Mean Time.
The theory is that if enough people can experience orgasm in the same time frame while projecting a conscious intention for peace and harmony on the planet, a surge of physical and spiritual positivity will infuse the Earth's energy field.
"We're going to zap The Field with joy and put a smile on the world's faces," enthused Reffell.
Any measurable effects will show up at The Global Consciousness Project (http://noosphere.princeton.edu) in Princeton, NJ, which runs a network of Random Event Generators around the world, which record changes in their randomness during global events. The results show that the physical effects of human consciousness can be measured.
The Global-O is just one part of what Sheehan and Reffell call their Evolutionary Revolution, which aims to increase consciousness of the necessity for true partnership between the Female and Male in all humans. "The only way our species can survive is by using both the male and female brains to solve our problems. Right now we're seeing a shift away from Alpha posturing towards the Mindful Male, the true masculine and feminine joining to redefine progress and success," said Sheehan. "Our new book, Redefining Seduction: Women Initiating Courtship, Partnership and Peace, explores the scientific basis of how quickly we can evolve into partnership modality and shift Alpha displays such as war and greed into prosperity and loving relationships."
This year, it seems they've even received God's sanction, after the Rev. Ed Young of Texas announced a 'sexperiment' to his megachurch congregation, exhorting them all to have sex every day for a week, "putting God back in the bed".
"We're very encouraged to hear that God is behind the idea of more people having good sex, and we hope everyone, believers and non-believers, will use this time to practice for the Global Orgasm," said Reffell. "We'd like to remind everyone, since human population (6.8 billion) is at the root of so many global problems, not to create a baby boom from the Global-O, at least until we all get the hang of the conscious intention thing."
In the two previous Global-O's, there were 17 million hits during December, with Spain winning the Global Hits Contest. "Interview requests have been arriving for weeks from around the world and all year we've been getting up to 200,000 hits a month, so this year looks set to be off the charts. The blogs are buzzing with a Global Giggle," said Sheehan.
