SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 20 (UPI) -- A Southern California houseboat-dwelling couple has suggested world peace might be achieved if everyone in the world had an orgasm on Dec. 22.
Anti-war activists Donna Sheehan, 76, and her partner, Paul Reffel, 55, are veterans at generating attention for peace, as they did in 2002 before the Iraq invasion, when they and dozens of friends stripped naked and laid down in a Marin County field to spell out the word "peace," the San Francisco Chronicle reported.
Sheehan is calling the venture the Global Orgasm for Peace event and said it doesn't matter what time of day the event occurs and nor does it matter if people don't have partners, the report said.
The couple said the way to show others of your participation is the global "OK" sign and a wink.
Whether the positive vibrations have any effect on hostilities remains to be seen, but U.S. Geological Survey spokeswoman Stephanie Hanna said there was no chance the energy would register seismically either, the newspaper said.
"The filters we have screen out any man-made activity, like a truck rolling past, or, uh, the activity you described," Hanna said.
