Vegetarian Sex

Mr Guy Mr Guy
So the fine folks over at PETA - you know, those arbiters of subtlety, have seen their ad for this weekend's Superbowl rejected by NBC. Here's the story and the video of the commercial: link

I'm going to have to respectfully disagree with the "Vegetarians have better sex" tagline, though - call me anti-sex positive if you will, but the minute you start licking a cauliflower, I am so outta there.

But thanks to this commercial, I am officially coining a new word: herbisexuality.

It's now almost to the point that companies get as much press by having their ads rejected as they do from the ads they air. Interesting ad, but I'd like to see the studies.

I think I am going to switch from lube to animal blood.

I think I'd prefer activist blood to lube at this point....I know it had a face but I hunted it, killed it and now I'm gonna eat it. My potato had eyes too before I callously skinned it and boiled it alive....

I just don't see how it can be healthy to eat only vegetables. Meat has stuff that's good for you too and it's good to have a variety of foods for each food has different minerals and vitamins.

If I only ate vegetables I would feel like I'm missing some kind of important ingredient or mineral that is in the meat. I would agree some foods are better than others but completely leaving out a category of food type sounds bad...

I look at the food pyramid and it has vegetables but it's not all vegetables and plus vegetables is not the biggest chunk of it either.

Besides what or who says, backed by what research done by who, says vegetarians have better sex? If this was proven to be true by many different studies I might have a salad more often. LOL

I think all they are going off of is that bodily fluids taste a little better if you eat less garlic and meat... Has anyone tried this?

I would hate to give up my bacon wrapped center cut steak with garlic powder poured on top of it, that is like my favorite meal along side with some Parmesan noodles made by pasta roni. I should say favorite meal that *I* know how to cook myself. Some times I have it for breakfast it's so good.

Vegetarians don't only eat vegetables. They still eat grains (the largest chunk of the food pyramid (which has been shown to be outdated)) and they supplement their protein with soy and other legumes or dairy (if their not vegan). Some of the other nutrients found in meat can also be found in certain vegetables, like spinach is a great source of iron.

A lot of people don't seem to make sure to intake those nutrients through alternative routes, though.

I think it depends on the kind of vegetarian. For example, I have a friend who is going into culinary studies and is a vegetarian (not vegan). He is very conscious about his vitamin intake and makes sure to get a balanced diet even though he doesn't eat meat. A few "fad veggies", on the other hand, just seem to choke down the celery and call it a day (and then break down at the end of every month or so). To each his or her own, I guess.

One thing that is very hard to absorb from any source, including meat in vitamin B12. It's only found in one kind of vegetation that I am aware of (kelp) and while it's in milk, it's much harder to absorb from milk than meat. Vegans run a risk of becoming deficient in this because the supplements that are readily available aren't vegan. They're derived from animal sources.
Other than that, it's possible to maintain a healthy vegan diet with careful nurtrition planning. It takes a lot of effort, but then how many people have a perfectly healthy diet these days anyways? We could all stand to pay more attention to our nutrient intake.

As far as sex and vegetarians go, there is some truth to the old saying "vegetarians taste better". Yah, former street-kid, I associated with a lot of hippies and vegan punks and tasted my share of vegetarians. But then non-smokers, non-drinkers and people who drink lots of pineapple juice taste better too....so I think I will take the pineapple juice(pina colada anyone?) and non-smoking and call it a day.

I am a vegetarian and I think peta has taken a stupid rout with that commercial. They're just going the "sex sells" rout and I don't like it.
