Also avoid glitter.

Jonathan

I suppose it's a step up from a cold shower.

David

Also avoid glitter.

Is there something you’d like to share with us? Don’t worry, we won’t judge.

Jen

A friend. :-)

Trevor

How jaded do you need to feel to try this?

Lisboeta

Try it too often and your, er, equipment will drop off (cryonecrosis).

David

I forgot that Lisboeta has been organising those liquid nitrogen sex parties for years. You know, the ones uncovered in the papers.

Microbillionaire

I think we might have a contender for female-appropriate counterpart to "don't stick it in crazy" coming up here: don't spray crazy in it.

Captain Nemo

Insert "sucking on ice lolly" gag here...

Freezing gas sexy times.

David

Freezing gas ≠ sexy times.

If an evening of passion has to entail gas at all, I can think of slightly less hazardous choices. A friend of mine once had a nitrous oxide party. There was quite a lot of laughing but so far as I’m aware nobody’s genitals fell off.

If you follow your second link through to 4:14, the host gets a full cup of liquid nitrogen splashed on his back to no ill end, thanks to the leidenfrost effect. Which is, I suspect, exactly what's going on at this spa. In fact, since the spa specifically says it uses vaporized liquid nitrogen, what they're really doing is just blowing cold air on people's nads.

Not my cup of tea, but it's not the horror you're assuming.

David

just blowing cold air on people's nads.

Imagine the job description.

Farnsworth M. Muldoon

This ignores basic physiology; I imagine the ladies in the photo are going to be severely disappointed at the shrinkage that occurs.

PiperPaul

I designed for a couple industrial gas companies (who make and sell various cryogenic fluids). I don't recall this use ever being mentioned in their gas applications literature, but this was at least ten years ago and times have changed.

Hopp Singg

Try it too often and your, er, equipment will drop off (cryonecrosis).

I checked my penis for warning labels first and nothing popped up.

*writes down address for Ainscow Hotel spa*

Lord Bob

Guy caught trying to freeze off a genital wart thinking fast there.

Connor

The latest sex trend: Spraying vaporised liquid nitrogen on your genitals.

Next week: lighter fluid.

WTP

Question...under Bucket List rules, could this almost, kinda, sorta be counted as a Threesome?

Ether frolics were a thing back in early Victorian times.

Hal

Next week: lighter fluid.

Meh. Already been done.

David

Meanwhile, in other news.

So that’s the future sorted.

Oh, a "celebrity" endorsement? See, also . . .

Unfortunately, we are living in a time where celebrity name recognition “trumps” skill, quality, or intellect. There is an enchantment of fame that makes the eyes of people glass over. It’s as if by merely being near it they are special in their own right. San Francisco Art Institute Professor, Mark Van Proyen in a candid interview with Alex Max about celebrities and their art had this to say:

“A celebrity is essentially a manufactured entity, with behind the scenes teams of ‘celebrity makers, from agents, producers, to networks of marketers, etc…celebrities are avatars of their own packaging.“

The essay also then asks; So how did we get to this place where celebrity rules, and opinions are based on feelings, not facts?, but of course the utter fiasco of the nineteen empties was noted a long time ago, and has been congealing since then . . .

David Davis

Nah.
She's just attempting to keep the school's fee-income up, via the approval of "right-on" London parents.

David

Wrong thread? Copied over.

ACTOldFart

Does it make your voice go all squeaky and chipmunky?

Phil B

I'll just nip off to Tescos and get a bag of frozen peas ... much cheaper and you can eat them afterwards.

Andrew Duffin

Vapourised liquid nitrogen being just, erm, nitrogen, and nitrogen making up - as it does - 80% of the air surrounding us, it's hard to see what the fuss is about.

Unless they're worried about asphyxiation...

David Gillies

Yes, it's like vapourised liquid water, otherwise known as steam.
