Isn&rsquo;t it gross?<br /> 3) Naked bodies make noises. Gross. Sex with clothes on is a more hygienic idea.<br /> 4) Vaginas can stink, if not washed regularly. Gross.<br /> 5) Sex is messy. Thank goodness women do most of the cleaning.<br /> 6) Sex between burps &quot;sucks.&quot; Don&rsquo;t have sex after eating. (This is especially true after eating Indian food)</p> </blockquote> <p> One can only speculate how the same nation that created this list was able to produce 1.2 billion people.</p> <p><a href="http://www.globalpost.com/dispatches/globalpost-blogs/wanderlust/india-top-disgusting-things-about-sex" target="_blank">read more</a></p> disgusting kissing sex vagina weird Asia-Pacific India Offbeat Health Wanderlust Mon, 30 Jan 2012 21:39:00 +0000 Iva Roze Skoch 5689450 at http://www.globalpost.com Jordan TV show turns violent as MP pulls gun on political opponent - live http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/regions/middle-east/120707/jordan-tv-show-turns-violent-mp-pulls-gun-political-opponen <!--paging_filter--><p>Politics got intense on Friday in Jordan, where a member of Parliament<a href="http://www.timesofisrael.com/jordanian-mp-pulls-a-gun-on-his-critic-during-live-tv-debate/"> pulled a gun on an opposition activist</a> on live television.&nbsp;</p> <p>A heated debate between MP Mohammed Shawabka and political activist and former MP Mansour Sayf al-Din Murad over the Syrian regime, broadcast on the Jo Sat televison network, turned into a noisy, incensed shouting match <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GFyqKzu2T1Y&amp;feature=player_embedded">before live audiences. </a></p> <p><a href="http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/regions/middle-east/120707/jordan-tv-show-turns-violent-mp-pulls-gun-political-opponen" target="_blank">read more</a></p> arab Arab Spring gun Jordan member of parliament Middle East shoe Syria weird Middle East Jordan Sat, 07 Jul 2012 14:52:41 +0000 Faine Greenwood 5710886 at http://www.globalpost.com Ploughshare turtles found in suitcase at Bangkok airport http://www.globalpost.com/dispatches/globalpost-blogs/weird-wide-web/ploughshare-turtles-found-suitcase-at-bangkok-airport Two smugglers were arrested at Bangkok's international airport for smuggling rare Ploughshare Tortoises.<p><a href="http://www.globalpost.com/dispatches/globalpost-blogs/weird-wide-web/ploughshare-turtles-found-suitcase-at-bangkok-airport" target="_blank">read more</a></p> weird Weird Wide Web Sat, 30 Mar 2013 18:42:27 +0000 Alexander Besant 5797706 at http://www.globalpost.com
