Virginity is 'gestated like a pearl'


Ariel

Recommended Posts

So I was shopping at a flea market yesterday and I went into one of my favorite shops. It's a shop full of sea shells and ocean related gifts. Examples include sea shell lamps, turtle sculptures, and various other knick knacks. I've been going to this shop for years, so imagine my surprise when I find fundie gifts!

It's a necklace setting that comes with an oyster in a can. You open the can, open the oyster, and place the pearl into the necklace. It seems also to suffer from some reallybad foreign language to English translation. If you can't read the wording:

Outside

Love: Chasteness Pearl

Real love is gestated for long time, just as uruaet is gestated in its shell, only expressed to the unique person. In the days full of hopes, Tangren brings the marvelous necklace: "Pearl of Love" for you.

Inside

God creates woman and pearl as well. Pearl is gestated with its matrix-clam, which is like the brilliant experience of a woman true love gestated

There was also a Love: Purity Pearl for sale.

All for the low price of $4.95!

tl;dr Your virginity is like a pearl necklace that costs less than $5.

You know that one of the symbols used in art for the clitoris is the pearl? That's why I laughed my ass off at your find.

So maybe it's really telling virgins to spend a lot of time with their 'pearl' before sharing it with someone else... ;)

This may be TMI (ok, this is probably TMI), but my girlfriends and I often refer to our "dewy pearls" after one of us read it in a bodice ripper!

I didn't realize my joke was so irritating! Just like the seeds of virginity that finally turn into a pearl.

Sorry if I seemed crabby. My mussels are a bit sore today.

(this is starting to sound like the fabric pun thread!)

Um. In lesbian erotica, the, erm, uh, er, thing is referred to as a pearl sometimes.

*blushes furiously and hides*

Ha! Straight out of the Dr. Joycelyn Elders playbook on sexual health. Not such a bad idea. It would be good for them actually to have some idea of what they like.

Well you can't really see it from the pictures, but the necklace is kind of like a small cage for the pearl. So I think they're encouraging your to 'imprison' your 'pearl'...possibly in a chastity belt.

And not suck the fun out, but the thing that irritates me the most about this is that it's a sneaky way of pushing religious ideals. It's a fucking awful message hidden in a neat little token gift. I would have loved the whole process of opening the oyster and removing the pearl (which now sounds terribly naughty-thanks guys) when I was little and just absorbed the message without thinking about it. Sneaky fundy bastards. :evil:

Same in both straight and lesbian Star Trek erotic fanfic.

Well, let's face it, the correct names for some sexual body parts are not pretty-sounding words -- not nearly enough onomatopoeia. They should all be called things like the Ahhoooh or the Mmmyeah, but "pearl" is not bad.

Which reminds this old movie buff -- Humphrey Bogart was once cast in a film called The Amazing Dr. Clitterhouse.

It's said that he hated the film -- guess what he called it, when referring to it (well, in private) for the rest of his life? :D

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,
       
      Chris Hancock, LCSW
      Franklin, TN

      I have a friend with untreated autism and ADHD. I've tried so fucking hard to help. He refuses. It's a mess. I'm really really tired.

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!
