Are orgasms overrated?

sorry for the abrupt heading, but you knew it was only a matter of time til I addressed something sexual)

From January 2005 issue of Redbook:
90% of women are still satisfied even if they don't have an orgasm every time they make love, according to a study at Sheffield University in England. The research also revealed that the vast majority of women find the sensuality of cuddling, kissing and touching every bit as fulfilling as a climax, says Paula Nicolson, lead researcher and professor of health psychology at the university. "We found that women's sexual pleasure occurs on many levels other than simply orgasm alone," says Nicolson.

Talk amongst yourselves ;)

The Future of the Cinema...

Last night I went to a panel discussion at NYU about independent films and their impact on Hollywood. It was moderately interesting, but during the Q & A near the end, New York Times movie critic A.O. Scott was asked about the future of movie theaters now with the popularity of DVDs, Netflix, and streaming videos. He responded that sleeper films can now have extreme success in home theater, take Napoleon Dynamite for example. He responded that "Movie's released in theaters are now like long trailers for their later DVD release." He went on to say that in 10 years ago, home theater might replace movie theaters, which can start to seem antiquated to new generations. Of course people will still want to see films on the big screen, right? However I know because of time and money I have not been able to see many films in the theater as of late. What do you think?
