Sex and the Recession: Coping During Tough Times

Scott Heiferman, the CEO of Meetup (love him BTW!) sends out this email to all the meetup organizers today asking us to give people reasons to utilize meetups in order to save money.  Because of recent changes in the economy, people are looking not only for answers, but a way to ease the pain.  And, they often find that in community with others going through the same issues as they are.  He used my meetup, Girls Just Wanna Have Funds, based in DC as an example of this in his video around the 1:30 mark:

So all the organizers are discussing the issue and listing how their members are being helped through their meetups.   You know, building and using community to help people during tough times and this organizer posts the following:

Our group helps women get in touch with their sexuality! 35% of women can not orgasm through intercourse and 15% never will in their life. We are set out to change this. And as everyone knows, orgasms release endorphins therefore relieving stress AND COPING WITH TOUGH TIMES!

    Well, as long as one of the partners is permanently fixed(as is the case with us), then sex is a wonderful, free activity. Keeps you warm in th winter too. 😉

    Well, I’m glad you said it! An ex girlfriend was telling me about how there is a slowdown in the amount of people coming into the L&D floor. I told her it might be that people just don’t want to pay those high bills of giving birth in a hospital environment. However, I also mentioned that during tough times Sex can be something that people resort to in order to cope with the harsh economical circumstances. Well, I proceeded to tell her that things should pick up within a few months. ;D

    I think orgasms would relieve stress and tension quite well! Perhaps they ought to consult with Girls Just Wanna Have Funds because using expensive hotel rooms can quickly blow a budget! 😉

    Really enjoying your articles since I found you about a week ago – thank you, keep up the great work with your educational and fun articles!
