So Much For The Virtues of Celibacy

My Collective Darwin Award (for those who don't know Darwin Awards are given to people who do us all a favour by removing themselves from the human gene pool) goes to the Shakers….

The Shakers were a religious sect that was an offshoot of the Quakers that began to evolve as a distinct religious sect in 1746. In 1772 their leader, a young married woman called Ann Lee (who believed she was the vital female component of Christ’s second coming), her husband, brother, neice and five other followers fled persecution for their radical beliefs in England to set up a community in New York State.

After initially building up a successful following, rising to 6,000 members in 19 communities in the 1830s their passionate belief in total celibacy ‒ even within marriage ‒ has resulted in the sect now being virtually extinct (there are seven surviving members, all women).

Nice furniture.

Shame about the belief system....

And so much for the virtues of celibacy.

Mind you, saddle sweetie, when it comes to sex I never think that far ahead.

They wrote some nice tunes too, so I'm looking out for some traditional Shaker Hi-Fi units.

Maybe SweetSinn there is something so intensely sensual about furniture design that sex simply becomes insignificant ......

Nope! That's a really silly idea.
