Topic Would you meet someone from Lush in person?
26 Sep 2013 12:36
Depends on who it was, I suppose. Also, how my partner felt about it. I've yet to meet anybody remotely near enough for it to be something to think about, and even if I did, I doubt seriously that we would be interested in such a meeting. On here, I'm a fun, bubbly girl and I try to be an elegant, well spoken gentleman. In reality, I'm a grouchy, awkward curmudgeon who floats aimlessly between masculinity and womanhood and it's a wonder I've found even one person who loves me the way I am.
Topic Why do you guys seem baffled that women like various things
26 Sep 2013 12:33
First, I don't think all of them are.
Second, many of the people on here who are asking such questions are much younger than many of us and asking out of a curiosity derived from their lack of experience and minimal array of partners.
Third, why does it matter? It's not like you were going to be fucking many of those types anyway, so why not let them ask their silly questions and be answered with only a modicum of sarcasm?
As per usual, hugs to all. Sorry I seem grouchy. Just posted on a topic about gay marriage, and you all know how fired up that can get us.

Good for him. Please note however, that it says specifically in the article that he and his wife attended as "private citizens" which is Washington for "THIS IS NOT A PUBLIC STATEMENT!" Now, I still think it's fantastic, but as an extremely queer individual, I'm not sure that it's as big of a deal as many people seem to be making it into. For the record, I'm pan, trans, and poly, but I feel that one man's opinion (no how influential he is or once was) is not as important as it could be. Even (relatively liberal) President Obama isn't willing to give it the support it needs to get any traction in the U.S. House of Representatives, even if it made it in the Senate. That said, as a (sort of, but legally) male who has dated men and been serious about a couple of them, I support the idea of gay marriage, but not in the way you might think.
I understand that marriage in this country is a spectacular legal and financial bonus (in terms of survivor benefits, taxes and medical access to name a few) to those who choose to participate in the system, but that comes from the same set of logic that allows you to plead 'no contest' to a charge you can't refute, but take a harsher penalty for not voluntarily admitting your guilt, (By the way, if somebody wants to tell me how that's not a fifth amendment violation, that would be great). It's not that I think that married couples should be discriminated against, but I staunchly believe that people who choose to commit to each other, but not engage in a religiously or legally sanctioned marriage shouldn't be either.
It's also obvious to me that if the government can't make something available to everybody, I'd like to see it out of the business altogether, at least until they can. Also, it's worth noting, that under much of the current legislation floating around congress, not even identified bisexual men or women would be eligible to marry same sex partners (since they 'have the option to choose an opposite sex partner') and under none of it would transsexual, transgender, asexual, polyamorous, or otherwise queer individuals be granted any sort of rights. Furthermore, any of those potential laws while granting the right of legally sanctioned marriage to gay and lesbian partners, might specifically and savagely curtail those rights for others.
Like I wrote though, good for you, Mr. Bush.
Topic who honestly likes to give blow jobs
25 Sep 2013 09:27
I'll admit I have a somewhat skewed sample, but most people I know, do actually. Men and women. It's not a weird thing. It's understandable to not enjoy it, but I honestly think more people do enjoy it than don't.
Topic How to use it??
18 Sep 2013 10:32
That's not a matter any of us can advise you on specifically. Every partner is different. Everyone has different preferences. I think the best advice I can give is to vary your routine. Experiment. Consider other activities besides intercourse (vaginal, anal, oral), but also don't neglect it.

Topic A question for bisexual guys and gals
12 Sep 2013 11:06
There are times when I crave the attention of one sex or the other, but generally I'm into either. It's worth noting though that I don't go out looking for it ever, really; also, that I'm pansexual, not bisexual.
Topic Truth: Is it a turn on to cum all over a woman's face and boobs?
12 Sep 2013 10:55
I think it's great that everybody here has such a clear grasp that porn is fantasy, and rarely reflects reality in any way. Recorded instances of ejaculating on a partner's body or face in literature and art date back well beyond modern pornography, though. Even Sappho wrote poems on the subject. There are a number of ancient cultures in which such an act was ritualized, or even made part of ceremonies regarding aging, marriage, fertility, and menopause. It's also worth noting from an anthropological standpoint, that these rituals frequently involved several participants, and nearly all had mirrors involving numerous women and few men. From the perspective of behavioral-evolutionary genetics, behaviors and even more complex information are now known to be stored and transmitted from generation to generation much more efficiently than once was, and that transmission is the primary phenomenon of evolution that can be observed at any reasonable rate. The point of all that in this case was that it may not be as simple as assigning those impulses entirely to the evil influences of pornography.
Now, from the standpoint of a woman who spent much of her life under the mistaken impression that she was male, I have enjoyed this action from both sides, and with both sexes. I like getting it on my face or having a guy cum on my almost anywhere. The notable exception is my hair, but I don't freak out if some gets in there incidentally during a facial. Conversely, I also thoroughly enjoy the experience of ejaculating on a beautiful face, ass, set of breasts, stomach, back, hands, or feet. I also like to see others doing it in a group environment, and I like to see women do the same. My preferences being what they are, my personal experience has shown me that everybody has a different opinion on this matter.
That may have been an unnecessarily long response. Maybe I should have just said 'I like this, everybody's different, and it's important to be respectful', but as some of you know, I really can't help myself when I have something to say. Cheers to everybody, I wish you a good day.
Topic Other transgender and transsexual members of Lush, I have a question for you.
10 Sep 2013 20:47
Thanks for all the support. I was mostly surprised because I had been on Lush for more than a year before I even encountered it. I'm sort of glad to hear that I wasn't alone, but I'm sorry to hear that others have had the same problem. I may have been more thrown than truly upset. Like I said, I appreciate all the support. Lush is a wonderful place, so thanks also to all those who've helped to create and maintain this amazing site.
Topic Where do you sit on the Kinsey scale?
01 Sep 2013 11:16
I think that the Kinsey scale is somewhat outdated, since the more widespread acceptance of pansexuality, asexuality, transgender and trans-sexual individuals to say nothing of the polyamorous population. Since I'm pan, trans, and poly, it's hard to say where I might end up. I think that his scale was great when it first arrived in the 1950's, but it's important to remember that Kinsey was studying homosexuality as a disease, at least originally.
Topic Other transgender and transsexual members of Lush, I have a question for you.
01 Sep 2013 11:12
How often do you get told by somebody on here that you are not in fact your chosen gender or sex? I just got a very rude message accusing me of deceiving the men and women of Lush. My profile bio begins like this "Hey there Lush. I'm a trans girl in her mid twenties..." I was momentarily very upset by this, until I remembered that I'm a woman with or without his validation.
I ask because in the year that I've been on Lush I've never received such treatment, but I only recently modified my profile to make it so obvious, and I wonder if it's more common than I thought.
I'd love to hear anybody's feedback. I don't mean to restrict the answers to trans individuals only, it's just relevant to us.
Topic do girls like to lick,suck and frenchkiss a boy's asshole during sex ??
01 Sep 2013 11:03
I understand it, but it's certainly not what I'm into personally. I don't really like having it done to me either, and on the rare occasion it has gone down, I've asked them to stop and in the one case my partner insisted, I said fine, and gave it a shot myself, and kind of hated it.. so I don't feel bad about my failure to reciprocate anymore.

This is not a problem. There are about fifty ways to deal with snoring, including just dealing with it. Others include breathe-right strips for light cases, sleeping on your side, or on an incline (this one has been the most helpful to people I know).

28 Aug 2013 00:51
Nope. It's my account and my writing. My partner has an account too, so there would be no point in hiding things from her even if I were inclined to try. I feel great about my using Lush, and as far as I can tell, she does too.
