Someone read my Blue Monday post this week. To be fair, this article added some stuff I hadn’t really thought about; by all means, go read it.
Moving right along: Here’s your kook of the day and, shamefully, Newsweek appears to be reporting this as straight news. Excerpts with my comments:
Amethyst Realm, a 27-year-old “spiritual guidance counselor” in England, says sex with ghosts is much better than sex with men—and she should know because she’s made love with at least 20 ghouls.
She’s a “spiritual guidance counselor?” So what possible reason might she have for, you know, making this shit up?
Realm said on the British TV show “ITV This Morning” last week that she experienced her first truly spiritual encounter 12 years ago after she and her then-fiancé moved into a new home together when she felt a strange presence.
No, she didn’t.
“It started as an energy, then became physical,” she told hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby.
No, it didn’t.
“There was pressure on my thighs and breath on my neck. I just always felt safe. I had sex with the ghost.
No, she didn’t.
You can feel it.
No, you can’t.
It’s difficult to explain. There was a weight and a weightlessness, a physical breath and stroking, and the energy as well.”
No, there isn’t.
Realm said she had a love affair with the ghost for three years before her human lover came home from work early and saw a shadow of what appeared to be a man. Since her first encounter, Realm has said she has had sex 20 times with various ghosts.
No, she hasn’t.
Is it possible to have sex with Casper The (little more than just) Friendly ghost? Experts say, yes (or, more accurately, yes, yes, yes, yes, YES!).
“People have the richest fantasies. If they’re getting pleasure from that fantasy, then it is possible,” said Rachel Sussman, a psychotherapist told Newsweek.
No, it’s not possible, any more than my imagining I can hunt a bull T-rex is possible.
It’s unfair, as there are plenty of reputable psychiatrists and psychologists out there, but indulging this kind of horseshit gives head-candlers a bad name.
