Allow Me To Make A Point

Acupuncture is the procedure of inserting needles into various points on the body, used in most cases to eliminate chronic pain. But as with most ancient medical practices, there is heavy debate as to the validity of the science. And in all my reading on the subject, I have never encountered a claim like the one being made by Pham Thi Hong of Vietnam. Ms. Hong says she can detect whether or not a man is a virgin - it is a combination of checking the man's pulse and looking for a tiny red spot behind his ear. Apparently the spot will only disappear after heterosexual intercourse, and is not affected by gay sex or masturbation. But even though I doubt Ms. Hong's methods, she has made a name for herself. While treating a young man convicted of gang rape, she discovered the spot behind his ear and was convinced he was innocent. Her extremely persuasive campaign lead to the case being re-examined and investigators determined that the original case was flawed. The man was released from prison in January. Of course this has lead to a surge of appeals from other convicted rapists for Ms. Hong to examine them and clear their name. And while many would say this is proof that her method has merit, the underlying point is that the man was released from prison because the original investigation was erroneous. It raises an interesting question, though. How many of you read this and went to see if you have a tiny red spot behind your ear?

I can't speak to her method etc but I have had acupuncture and it does work. A doctor does it at a local hospital but can't charge for the practice. So he takes donations to the hospital charity fund.

I didn't look for a red spot, but I did check if I still had a pulse.

Red spot still there (had the wife check). Pulse has been gone for decades now. Thump-Bump Thump-Bump Thump-Bump

One of the doctors at our vet's does acupuncture for dogs (and, I suppose, for cats, ferrets and other small, four-footed critters). As for the red dot, I dunno. I don't have hair on my palms, either.

No red spot here. But then, I'm not a man. At least I wasn't the last time I checked... *checks again* nope, not a man.

Need a 2ed opinion, Nethie?

OK, I read about this before. 2 years ago I didn't have the red spot. But when I checked today there was a red spot. I guess it is true. After 2 years of abstinence you do revert back to a virgin. I guess I better talk to the wife about this.
