[2012-Aug-17] There is no g-spot

Postby ReasonablyDoubtful » Fri Aug 17, 2012 6:32 pm

Kelly: "See, there's this thing called a g-spot..."
Zach: "Sorry, I only believe in evidence-based sex."

Also, Zach might want to read some studies in regards to things deemed "alternative medicine." Not all conventional medicine is evidence-based and not all evidence-based medicine is conventional.

That's not to say that going with a random "alternative medicine" treatment won't get you complete BS most of the time, but that's why it's important to read the studies in regards to efficacy and safety of conventional medicine treatments vs. efficacy and safety of "alternative medicine" treatments.


Edit: By the way, I am aware that the clitoris is not the g-spot. I would think that would be obvious from the first part of my post, but I know that some people will misread it.
Time to piss off people with logic and facts!

Of course some alternative medicine is fine and some conventional medicine is crap. That's part of the joke. Zach is specifically talking about the type of person who thinks any nonsense is going to work if the words "alternative medicine" have been slapped on it, and everything that has ever been considered conventional medicine will kill you. That's part of the joke... :|

The problem is that he did it terribly.

Again.

Just... stay away from the soapbox, okay, Zach? You boxes are always all moldy.

Maybe the point is: if it really works, it's mainstream. When an herb, a massage or whatever sorcery is found to be reasonably better than placebo, then it ceases to be alternative. And this happen quite often, lately.

I can think of a lot of examples where this just isn't true. Psychiatrists still aren't prescribing krill oil to patients. Depression, as an example been shown to be positively affected by >=1g of EPA each day, especially with individuals that are resistant to medication (implying that EPA deficiency can cause depression, not to mention other things).

It isn't just depression, either.

Honestly, right now I can't find the review, but it was filled with bias anyway. What the well-designed studies showed and what the reviewers concluded from what the studies showed differs greatly.

YAY SCIENCE!

Edit: Science is wonderful, by the way. The problem is when scientists don't actually practice science.

Then: if it works, it SHOULD be mainstream. And if it REALLY works, it just will be mainstream faster. "Complementary medicine".

Actually, my psychiatrist prescribed 2g of fish oil per day for depression. It was only after one month on fish oil that he also tried antidepressants (I currently take 30 mg of Wellbutrin and 2g fish oil per day, and try to get light to moderate exercise daily as well).

Also, I prefer fish oil because I don't mind swallowing large objects. Baby.
