Post #2: How To Become An Uber Male Virgin (it's not what you think)

Well, equal time, you know. And you know I have TIME to procrastinate. So I webbed around for the Uber Male Virgin.

So first, from several web sources, and as if they would know, there were three famous men who died virgins:

Nikola Tesla (1856-1943), Died age 87

Eccentric if brilliant inventor of electrical devices (among them the AC generators that power most of the world), Tesla was less successful at having a personal life. He shunned physical contact of any type, going so far as to feign hand injuries to avoid shaking hands with people he just met. One female acquaintance who grew enamored of Tesla reportedly took the initiative and tried to kiss him, causing the reticent inventor to recoil in terror. In all likelihood he died celibate at age 87.

Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1727), Died age 85

Newt, it seems, was such a prude that he didn't get into any relationship until he was middle-aged, and most historians believe it went unconsummated (me: I have no idea how historians would know this)

Paul Erdos (1913-1996), Died age 83

Single throughout his life, Paul preferred to live a monkish, nomadic life devoted to his studies in mathematics (he published over 1,475 academic papers during his lifetime). He made no secret of his celibacy, telling reporters that as a child he "could not stand physical pleasure."

BUT NO MALE ALIVE TODAY HAS COME FORWARD TO SAY HIS LONG LIFE IS DUE TO HIS VIRGIN STATE.

At least, I haven't found one through The Oracle of Google. I guess, even if he existed, the male ego wouldn't let him admit it.

But, wait, there's more. There are "men" who swore to be virgins in Albania. But they're women and they're in their 80s now, so they might still live another 30 years. What, you asked. Well, read this article:


Pashe Keqi recalls the day nearly sixty years ago when she decided to become a man. She chopped off her long black curls, traded in her dress for her father's baggy trousers, armed herself with a hunting rifle and vowed to forsake marriage, children and sex.

Holy cow. More:

The sworn virgin was born of social necessity in an agrarian region plagued by war and death. If the patriarch of the family died with no male heirs, unmarried women in the family could find themselves alone and powerless. By taking an oath of virginity, women could take on the role of men as head of the family, carry a weapon, own property and move freely.

They dress like men, adopt a male swagger and spend their lives in the company of other men.

So, there you have it. The oldest living male virgin is also a woman.

What would you girls do without moi? ;-)

Bear with me while I learn. The first button likes the POST. The second button likes the BLOG site. Please help me by "liking" me. Thanks!

What would we do without toi? Clearly, we'd have all the sex we want without any thought as to whether it's killing us slowly! :)

Gennita said...

Lady Zannah,

Are you confused because these women turned into "males" with uber male behavior like ordering kills and sitting with their legs open just because they "think" they are "male?"

LOL. Confused more?

Gennita said...

You know, I hammer all damn day with stinky sweaty men and never once thought I was male. Of course, THEY forget I am not because they start talking like men do when no women are around.

Hmm. I'm confusing myself now.

I actually knew that about Newton. A friend of the family who was a history teacher said if you threw out an obscure fact, it would impress a teacher, b/c it showed you read the material in detail. Mine for so many courses was that Newton was a supposed virgin. ;-)

at 57 I think that I am the worlds oldest male virgin till anyone would like to claim.

Gennita said...

Well, Daniel, if you were really male, then you're the only one who has stepped forward to claim the title of Uber Male Virgin ;-). Uh, congrats?
