Slap Bang & Stock Photos

Well you bunch of pervs, we are slap bang in the middle of the big week of, well, slap & bang.

My house now stinks of massage oil, I'm pretty sure I'm scarred for life from the spilled wax of a scented candle and I can't get Enya out of my head but at least we are still going strong in this quest to conceive. (I've added a mini quest of breaking our 4 month old bed for my own entertainment, not doing so well on that score, but the upside is I may very soon get to replace my office desk)

It's good to see that the BBC have gone and thrown a spanner in the works of couples everywhere who are trying to conceive by announcing that they should not be having sex every second day like millions of sources claim, but rather every single day. So basically the point they're trying to get across is that absolutely no one has a clue either way.

And a tip for BBC, get some new stock photos. I found 9 articles on the BBC site today related to male fertility and 8 of them used THIS photo.

In the name of all that's bloody holy people, I personally produce millions of these things a day, surely you can get another shot of a few.

Maybe one where a bunch of the guys are paddling around drinking cocktails (geddit?) and wearing 'my other fallopian is a porsche' t-shirts...

I feel dizzy....

Every now and then, a magazine here in the U.S. -- Consumer Reports -- will show multiple ads for multiple companies that use the same stock images. Gotta love them.

Gives me an image out of a show 'little britain'...

As a guy stares at the identical adverts, he points to one specifically and says..."I want that one".

You had to be there I guess....

Stock images rule. My other fallopian...LOL

That dizziness could very well be caused by dehydration or lack of protein. :)

J1: Stock Photos Rule indeed, but has anyone EVER made any cash out of them?

J2: Lack of beer more like...my body is a temple, ancient greek to be precise, looks like muck, and all falling apart n'stuff...

Cheers thanks!

Way too much time spent on it when I should have been busying myself with more productive things but I was bored of the old template.

In fact its actually the same template with the HTML code behind it butchered, I don't do anything the easy way....

I was thinking about become a sperm model back in the day, but I had second thoughts about getting my kid into the entertainment biz at such a young age.

Boom boom...

I actually have a hooters story from this weekend past that reminded me of your pic with your son.

you have a fantastic blog - very funny!

my tip - enjoy all the sex now because once the baby is born you can forget about it.

also - boobs, they will pretty much be off limits from the point of conception, its possible you might be allowed near them if your wife is overdue (can bring on labour & a 40 week pregant woman will try anything!!!). then after birth they belong to the baby!

Good luck! :)

Hey Mel:)

thanks for the kind words, you've made me blush, although that might just be my high blood pressure, I'm not sure.

Your tip, as tough a charge as it may be, I will strive to follow it !

..er..what...?...boobs... off limits?... you jest, surely?

not the twins, my girls...NOOOOO !
