Thinking about sex.......

 Two photos of the Machrie Moor standing stones, posted by my friend Mary Baker onto her Facebook page.  Thanks Mary!  There are remnants of six stone circles at Machrie Moor, on the island of Arran.

 Mary speculates as follows:


"...............perhaps the lucious rounded inviting circles were lunar and feminine and the showy offy pointy stick up huge ones are solar and masculine -- just a thought... oh and the rounded lovelys were grey in colour and the pointy show offs were red!"

Difficult to argue with the sexual symbolism here, one would have thought, but never having been to this site I'll leave it to others (who have greater knowledge of these matters) to comment......

There is some good info here:

Sex is not a good enough reason to move all those stones without a very strict mistress.

Wonderful megalithic panoramic landscape at Machrie Moor, west coast of the Isle of Arran. Highly recommended for visiting. Hop on a ferry across the Firth of Clyde next time you're close enough to Arran, from Ayrshire or Bute.Look to the south - west thereabouts and sing "Mull of Kintyre" (bagpipes optional). Many of the stones were sunken in the peat bog before archaeological retrieval. An evocative landscape. Your virility will be stimulated (also wonderful effect on eyebrow flexibility).

P.S. I wish to make a complaint: one of your 'please prove you're not a robot' words needing to be typed in before approval was ERETC.
You're obsessed!!!

I deny all knowledge of any words or letter sequences designed to rid the world of robots. Nothin' to do with me, Guv'nor......

Is that something that certain versions of Blogger, or certain servers, do as a matter of course?

Regarding obsessions, I am just a normal sort of fellow.....

I thought sex meant things posh people received coal in!
