The Korea Post notice:

The Korea Post is organizing a tour of the Hamyang County for the ambassadors and spouses in a one-night-two day program to attend the Opening Ceremony of the 2015 Hamyang International Wild Ginseng Festival on Thursday 30th-Friday 31st, July 2015. KTX VIP Train will be used.

The Hamyang County has been hosting the Sansam Festival every year for the past 11 years--capitalizing on the cleanest environment in the famed Jiri Mountains (where wild ginseng grew and where the legendry male sex symbol Byeon Gang-soe and female symbol Ongnyeo lived together) and the widely known natural surroundings best fit for the growth of the wild ginseng plus the incomparably high value of the wild ginseng.

In 2020 the County plans to host a large-scale wild ginseng expo. For story and photos, please visit /news/view.html?section=161&category=181&no=1004.

Sexology

Students packed the grand auditorium of a university where a renowned sexologist was to talk about Everything You Want to Know about Sex.

As he was discussing various aspects of human sexuality in due time that delicate phase in sexual intercourse, the climax of excitement, came up for discussion

and he mentioned of a woman who experiences multiple orgasms in a single session.

This woman reaches orgasm more than ten times in a single session

Here and there students blurted out their surprises, and from the back a male student asked, Whos the woman?

Then a female voice followed, Wow, terrific! Whos the guy?
