Happy Easter!

Happy Easter, Western-type Christians and anyone else who enjoys Easter!

Happy first Sunday after the first ecclesiastical full moon that falls on or after March 21, everyone else!

Here's some Christian music (no video, just audio, and the sound is very faint at first).

First I look at the tubercle of the upper lip

Two Scottish researchers have published research that found that "vaginal orgasm is more prevalent among women with a prominent tubercle of the upper lip." the results of thir study were:

A prominent and sharply raised lip tubercle was associated with greater odds (odds ratio = 12.3) of ever having a vaginal orgasm, and also with greater past month vaginal orgasm consistency (an effect driven by the women who never had a vaginal orgasm), than less prominent lip tubercle categories. Lip tubercle was not associated with social desirability responding, or with orgasm triggered by masturbation during PVI, solitary or partner clitoral or vaginal masturbation, vibrator, or cunnilingus.

Of course, there are some problems with the study. First, the number of subjects was small (n=258) and rather limited ethnically ("predominantly Scottish"). Second, tubercle size was self-reported rather than measured objectively. Finally, of course, the significance of the difference (if any) between "vaginal orgasms" and "clitoral orgasms" is not scientifically well established.

Anyway, as eager as I always am to contribute to scientific knowledge, I suppose I'll just have to take the researchers' word on the validity of their findings. Unfortunately, I'm in no position to carry out any further research of my own in the field. (Except my ongoing research where n=1, which unfortunately is not scientifically valid. Oh well.)

On a more personal note, maybe because I've got really big lips for a white guy, I've always paid a lot of attention to women's lips, and, strangely enough, I've always found a well-defined philtrum (yes, there is a word for those two lines under people's noses) and a prominent upper-lip tubercle to be very attractive in a woman. Give me a Cupid's bow every time. I guess I just have good instincts when it comes to women.

And, like I said, I've always paid a lot of attention to women's lips, but lately I find I'm really paying attention. With apologies to the J. Geils Band, I also often find myself singing this song:

Some fellas look at the eyes
Some fellas look at the nose
Some fellas look at the size
Some fellas look at the clothes

I don't care if her eyes are red
I don't care if her nose is long
I don't care if she's underfed
I don't care if her clothes are worn
First I look at the tubercle of the upper lip!

Some fellas like the smiles they wear
Some fellas like the legs that's all
Some fellas like the styles of their hair
Want their waist to be small.

I don't care if their legs are big
I don't care if their teeth are big
I don't care if their hair's a wig
Why waste time lookin' at the waistline?
First I look at the tubercle of the upper lip!
