OPPOSITE OF NATIONAL CELIBACY DAY?

Votergasm.org was launched on September 4 by recent graduates of Columbia, Harvard, and University of Wisconsin-Madison. The site asks visitors to sign the Votergasm Pledge to have sex with a voter on election night—and withhold sex from non-voters for the next four years. In addition, it provides tools to organize election-night Votergasm parties and features erotic pictorial guides to activities such as requesting an absentee ballot.

Not quite the opposite of National Celibacy Day, I guess, since this is non-partisan. But it definitely links sex (and the abstention of/withholding from sex) with voting. Which is interesting, I guess--but it's obviously not for everyone.

So, as with the voting process itself, you have a choice:

National Celibacy Day (Democrats only)

Votergasm (for every voter who wants to have his or her ballot punched)

[Sorry. Couldn't resist it.]

ok, i fall into the "national celibacy" day category on two defaults: one is that i'm not currently getting any anyhow, so really that begs one of the famous 4 passover questions--"why is this night different from any other night?" and two is that i am a democrat, though i am not a u.s. citizen.

but on the offchance there's an opportunity to get me some under the votergasm.org rules, i WOULD vote if i COULD. (because at this point i don't need any more roadblocks to getting some.)

Ok, sounds like a plan to me. Where does one sign up? Does a vote guarantee sex? Or I still have to look around for it?

Anyway, the idea is a great one... if only to get one to vote. Then again who shall I vote for?
