Food and Sex Factoids

But not how you may think I mean it.

I ran across some articles about how and why certain foods were invented. There were two that I found...Why don't I just tell you? I mean, where have I been that I didn't know these factoids?

Kellogg invented cornflakes because he wanted to create a diet he felt would curb the sex drive. I'm serious! He and many others during his time thought masturbation was evil and wicked and he was determined to invent a food to stop it!

For whatever reason, he thought cornflakes were the ticket because they were meatless or some other unfounded science he was practicing. I was laughing too hard to finish the explanation of why he thought it would work.

The mid-19th century guys seemed pretty obsessed with sex, but not like modern men. They were trying to stop others from having so much of it. (ah... what's wrong with this picture aside from being abbynormal?)

And then there was Dr. Graham also his competitor, who claimed his latest creation - Graham Crackers succeeded where Kellogg's failed. Yeah, right.

And so we have two great food stuffs, but fortunately they did not accomplish said missions. I'm sure there were a lot of folks refusing to buy those two products.

Naturally, there was an opposing faction who thought sex was great and everyone needed more of it. And then there was the physician who believed hysteria in women was caused from a lack of sex. Oh yeah, I think that would do it.

So one doctor began... ahem...treating women in his office assisting them in well... you know... having orgasms. I am serious, stop your laughing!

He not only assisted his patients, he gave speeches at conferences on how to treat these female patients.

Finally... Finally... one very smart doctor created the vibrator so women could treat themselves at home.
