Every first lady has a special social program they work on: Laura Bush the librarian talked about reading; Nancy Reagan told us to “Say No to Drugs”; and Hillary Clinton spent 8 years preparing for a presidential run.
Usually FLOTUS focuses on some easy social problem that brings good PR to her husband but won’t ruffle any political feathers. That’s why Michelle Obama’s fitness focused “Let’s Move” program made so much sense.
America is too fat, and we need to work out more; who (outside of Sarah Palin) can find a political problem with that? But I just realized that “Let’s Move” isn’t just a social tour by the first lady, it’s part of a long term campaign plan to woo women voters. Thanks to new research out of the Kinsey Institute at Indiana University it’s obvious that Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign is just a plan to “sex” women into the voting booth.
I’m sure you’re thinking, what does encouraging lazy Americans to stop acting like couch potatoes have to do with sex, let alone voting? Easy as 1,2,3 squat thrusts. The Center for Sexual Health Promotion along with the Kinsey Institute recently released a study showing that an increasing number of women report achieving a ‘coregasm’ during intense workouts. A “coregasms” is an orgasm induced or initiated by exercise and physical activity. More specifically:
An estimated 45 percent of the women who responded to the researchers’ online request for women who had either exercise-induced orgasm (EIO) or exercise-induced sexual pleasure (EISP) said their first experience was during abdominal exercises, followed by weight lifting (26.5 percent), yoga (20 percent), bicycling (15.8 percent), running (13.2 percent) and walking/hiking (9.6 percent).
In other words, all of that running, jumping and squatting being pushed out by Michelle is likely inducing ‘little earthquakes,’ ‘little deaths’ and ‘the Big O’ in women across America. Now perhaps this is just a coincidence right?
I mean, just because the first lady is promoting exercise and that happens to lead to sexual satisfaction in more American women that doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with voting, right?
Studies show that people with greater sexual satisfaction are more likely to vote, and that sexually happy and satisfied people are more likely to vote for winners in electoral campaigns. And don’t knock the political connection here, according to the report :
Some older women told them that they had first experienced EIO or EISP in childhood during the President’s Challenge, a fitness initiative that was launched in the 1960s. One woman said she had attained orgasm during exercise, but never when she had marital sex.
And you wonder why Kennedy was so popular? Michelle knows she’s getting to the Heart & Soul of Obama’s core constituency by bringing out the love.
I’ve said for years now that a presidential campaign is just a long seduction tour, so why should we be surprised that FLOTUS is showing some political game as well? Women work out; women get turned on, women vote Obama – campaign genius.
Now of course there is no guarantee that “Let’s Move” is going win the 2012 election for Barack Obama – but it’s nice to know that he and Michelle are trying everything they can. They just want to make sure they have as many millions of healthy, fit and satisfied women cheering for Obama as possible come Election Day. Sort of brings a whole new definition to the term “O Face”.
