The literature attests to numerous metrical standards, each utilizing diffetent skeletal elements, for sex determination in South A frican Blacks. Metrical standards are popular because they provide a high degree of expected accuracy and are less error-prone than subjective nonmetric visual techniques. We note, however, that there appears to be no established metric mandible discriminant function standards for sex determination in this population.

In October this year, Sunday Times Lifestyle conducted a sex survey in association with local research house Ratepop, using their proprietary chatbot technology. This chatbot is a computer program, designed to simulate conversation with human users, and is hosted on Facebook Messenger. As part of the survey, more than 2, ordinary South Africans with internet access answered a number of questions about their sex lives. The respondents' identities were kept strictly confidential, but they were segmented into the following demographics: age, sexual orientation, race, location, relationship status and gender. This methodology allowed Ratepop to aggregate the overall results and analyse the data according to these demographic segments. Ever wondered which part of the country is the most sexually liberated? According to a recent survey by Lazeeva, a company that makes erotic Register Sign In. Would you share the details of your sex life with a curious chatbot?

Box , Pretoria , South Africa. Sex determination of unknown skeletal material is one of the most vital determinations made by forensic anthropologists. Numerous studies have focussed on the differences, both osteometric and morphological, between the sexes of a particular racial phenotype and population. Previous work by a variety of researchers has underscored the necessity of population specific standards. The purpose of this research is to metrically assess sex differences in the pelvis of South African whites and blacks and develop standards tailored to these groups. Nine measurements traditional and newly developed were taken and subjected to SPSS stepwise and direct discriminant analysis.
South Africa has produced its first all-black pornographic movie, which film-makers say is intended to help promote safe sex and combat HIV. Mapona — which means Naked in SeSotho — was made in response to demand from the 30, members of an amateur porn site, Sondeza, who complained about the dearth of local black talent in X-rated movies. Producer Tau Morena said most porn films consumed in South Africa were of American, Asian or European origin, while domestic content had been dominated by white people. This is something consumed but it's not generally thought about who's making it. Historically it's not at the forefront of our communities. We're still trying to identify who we are as South Africans so we've been importing films rather than making our own. More than 50 people responded to audition notices on Sondeza for the hour-long movie. The selection process included tests to ensure none had HIV or other sexually transmitted diseases. Morena chose three women — including a dancer known as Titanic — and two men from a variety of social backgrounds.
