Finally a solution has been found for the overabundance of plastic water bottles and plastic bags in landfill sites, and it emanates from Indonesia. Apparently researchers there have come up with a material that looks and feels like plastic, however it is made from the Yuca plant. This material is biodegradable, harmless to animals and can even be dissolved in water and consumed safely by humans.
Now of course, this leads us to think about the possibilities. You know, condoms, sex toys, stimulators and such! That is, if they can be made not to dissolve too rapidly, but still offer reliability. Of much advantage would be the ability to consume these. Think of a scenario where police would come upon a couple in the act of doing it in the car for instance. Police man, “What have you got in your mouth?” Man, “Just gum officer”. Officer, “Let me see that.” Man, “Sorry, I just swallowed it.” Well, as you can see, so much for that investigation! Imagine how much more inviting the use of “covers” would be if we could rest assured that the disposal of same would not wind up in landfills, lakes and rivers. Woman, “Are you going to use a condom?” Man, “Oh don’t worry, it’s biodegradable”. Woman, “Right, forget it!” And so, as with all things, there could be some drawbacks!
One is led to ponder the inevitability of Murphy’s Law kicking in. If these Yuca replacement plastic bags are biodegradable, how can they be relied upon to hold liquids? Now I hope I’m not being too skeptical myself, in wondering about that. I see myself carrying my bags of milk home, and wearing it all. Let alone the disappointment of having my partner refuse to have sex, with a Yuca based condom. So, as I see it, there needs to be much more work done on this invention, before it can be intertwined into everyday usage.
Come by often, as I will surly update this very interesting and indeed very delicate subject in future.
That news was not unexpected. And, reading up on the subject, I find a lot of acronyms and dense terminology which probably nobody understands. Think about terms like Relational Trauma (RT) Model. I guess that’s like as in realizing that your partner doesn’t want to have sex with you anymore and it causes you trauma? Then I’ve read about treatment for partners of sex addicts. I think the people who need treatment are the ones who have not found a partner who is a sex addict, another very traumatic experience indeed! We have The Association for Partners of Sex Addicts Trauma Specialists (APSATS), and I hope to find such a partner and thereby become eligible to join this Association, djupppie! Also noteworthy is Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT), that too could be a difficult occupation. And consider that avoidance of sexual stimuli does not meet “section C of PTSD code F43.10 of the DSM-V” and that there is a hair raising problem right there. And should I dare mention “hypervigilance”? That’s a term which defines the act of watching or spying on your partner due to a lack of trust. I wouldn’t trust a partner that’s a sexual addict and avoids sex with me too! And so in closing, I guess the moral of the story is: Make sure your partner knows nothing about RT, is a sexual addict with you, has never heard of CSAT and does not fall within the jurisdiction of “section C of PTSD”, and you will have a long and blistering, err I mean, blissful marriage.
