I like the title.
As far as erotica goes, it could be like a bunch of hot girls sporting more fucked up versions of a Camel Toe.
Camel Toes that are on a ruthless hunt for good dick.
Except with less blood. Well, unless it's that time of the month.

What about a blazer with a graphic tee? I tried that a few times, but I prefer to maintain my blazers fresh and tidy for work. Plus, I wear blazers all week long when I'm working, and I have plenty of other casual clothes in my wardrobe I like to wear...
Yeah, I like this look - even more so if the blazer is a one-of though and doesn't look like it belongs with a formal suit. Like maybe it has a bit of unique detailing or is in an atypical fabric. And definitely with jeans.

Nah. With all the padding, the 'fights' are typically more like tussles than anything else. Or maybe UFC has desensitized me to what I see on the ice. I don't see it as a big deal. It's a physical sport, players are asserting their dominance. We like to watch.
Topic Coffee or Energy drink for morning fix.
01 Oct 2013 08:07
An energy drink first thing in the morning is pretty harsh on the stomach. I save those for the occasional afternoon boost if I need it or for evening just before going out or mixed with vodka.
Lately I've been having a coffee at some point during the morning but not always first-thing. I prefer a protein shake or smoothie to start. If I'm super tired though or didn't sleep well, I'll turn the keurig on while I'm in the shower and go for the bold dark roast or a double-espresso.
All in all, it's still healthier than some of my stay-awake habits of years past.
Topic One of my worst nightmares come true...my 9/11 poem being used for commercial purposes...
01 Oct 2013 07:58
Wow, that's truly awful, Alan! :(
Re whether to leave it in the calendar - I guess it depends on what they're willing to do and also whether you want yourself and your poem associated with that cause in the first place. Given that it is altered to give meaning to an event it wasn't intended to be about affects the integrity of the poem as well.
On the other hand - technically it could also just mean more publicity which isn't necessarily a bad thing as long as you're being given credit. Re $-compensation - if the poem is meant to be used as a charity fund-raiser type thing, it's a bit of a stickier situation I think.
I guess I don't really have very good advice. I don't know enough about the cause they're promoting and where the calendar profits are/were supposed to go. If it's small scale and for charity, I would feel bad about asking for the calendars to be destroyed all because of one dumbass. Personally I would probably opt for the sticker.
Topic What to do?
01 Oct 2013 05:49
First of all, I'm not in the lifestyle, so my opinion may not matter here.
But... I strongly dislike the idea of manipulation of another under the guise of 'chivalry/etiquette' or 'BDSM rules' or whatever it is a Dom considers as acceptable behaviour by anyone he considers an underling.
My assumption was that if one considers themselves a sub that they show respect to Doms in general, but that they are still a free-agent and have autonomy over themselves, their time and their attention.
While I don't know the rules of the game, I'm posting because it pisses me off when I see manipulation, subtle social threats and the equivalent of 'slut-shaming' as a method of trying to control someone or bully them into something they don't want to do. Whoever this guy is, he's a first class Asshole (and I capped the 'A' since he calls himself a Dom). You did nothing wrong, littlebirdie - whether in a BDSM environment or a general social environment. There are no implied promises just because you're chatting with a guy. Until you make a commitment, you still get to choose.

Now that's more like it. =d>
Seriously, you seem gifted to find pictures around the web. I tried searching for pictures of a trench coat with a casual style, but couldn't find any ; I literally Googled with about 6-7 different terms. Your 3rd picture represents exactly what I was looking for. How did you find it?
I don't have a trench coat in my wardrobe currently, but if I had one I'd aim for that look exactly. It would look good too with a colored knit sweater similar to those I posted above.
I like the boots on the 2nd picture too.
Beckham doesn't have the most awesome shirts/jeans in my opinion though, especially in the last 2 pics. His jeans are a bit too washed off, plus they're too long. But hell, he's Beckham...
Hmm... not sure how I found them. I think the coat pic I was looking up scarves. The coat is just a basic pea-coat though. You can find that style anywhere. It looks great with a heavy scarf.
The boots in the first two pics are actually by UGG. :)
Beckham has really great style all around, IMO.
I like these looks too for something a little more styled.

Do you girls prefer a crew-neck or a v-neck for shirts? I always preferred crew-necks ; more comfortable and more masculine.
I don't mind either. I think it's about the level of the v-neck.
Like what you posted above and this is ok:
This level (and deeper) is not so good.

Quality jeans, fitted (but not skin-tight) tees, long-sleeve tees or knits or button-down shirts. Athletic sportswear, board shorts, ski-jackets, long trenches, nice shoes, short boots, cool jackets. I guess sporty and casual-to-trendy would fit my preference best. I'm not that into the whole suit n' tux thing, unless it's required for work or special events. A guy that's got a bit of style but is still keeping it easy and casual turns my head far more than a guy in a suit.

I find body products like soap or bodywash don't linger in extreme ways, so if he wants to fruit it up in the shower or go for the vanilla sugar-cookie bath bomb, it's all good.
I would prefer men's or unisex colognes though. I don't like musky or heavy scents, so something fresh and clean and woodsy is best.

Great advice from a lot of people in this thread.
I agree that 'dating a coworker' is kind of one of those things you try to avoid unless the mutual attraction and affinity for each other is so strong that you are willing to risk going against the rules. The rules may be defined by the company (some of them frown on these kinds of relationships) or just a general concern that if/when the relationship tanks, it will be extremely awkward and uncomfortable to still have to see each other every day... Not to mention being gossip fodder for your coworkers as they watch things unfold - including managers. It's really not the best career move to be honest, even though it does happen anyway.
So, in my opinion, to go the coworker route to 'explore' a situation because you have things in common, are at similar life stages, and are friends but *maybe* feelings could develop over time is really throwing that risk:benefit ratio wayyyy out of balance. Coworker affairs and relationships (not counting drunken xmas party hook-ups never to be discussed again) are typically reserved for when the intensity is already there.
In this situation, she has already reaffirmed the 'you're such a good friend' thing. Make no mistake that when a woman says this, she's saying it with the hopes that you will 'get it' and not make things awkward by pushing the romance envelope in her direction. It's a way to avert the awkwardness she sees coming. I'm sure she enjoys talking to you and hanging out during breaks etc, but it's also important to remember that the office is kind of like a forced social bubble in a way - being friends at work, having lunch together and chatting over a cubicle wall or by email doesn't mean that person would consider doing those things with the same person on 'off-time' like weekends or after work. You mentioned that she's not even open to lunches so at this point it becomes even more clear that she's not interested. This could be that she doesn't like the idea of dating a coworker, that she's not attracted to you or the chemistry is off, or that she's just got something else going that you don't know about. You'll never really know, but I would honestly advise against continuing to push for something she clearly isn't interested in. Especially in a work environment, it can make things extremely uncomfortable. It could get to the point that she just avoids you altogether for fear of leading you on and that's probably the last thing you want to happen.
I also think perspective is important too. You're not in love with her. At this point, you're infatuated and possibly have a desire to be a white knight type figure because you perceive her to be unhappy or lonely. There's no doubt that you really like what you know about her so far, but you don't really know her enough to be in love with her in the genuine sense. Without having even gone for lunch, your interaction is limited and you might be romanticizing what you know about her to a degree because she seems to fit the prototype of what you think would be your ideal mate.
I would just relax and be casual and friendly and continue on with life. She already knows you like her (trust me), so the ball is in her court if she ever wants to get to know you more. If you didn't work together, I'd say there might be more leeway if you wanted to lay your cards on the table and get a definitive answer, but because of the situation, I'd advise to take a more cautious approach and lay low. Good luck... :)
Topic Girls, which one u like the most? To be a mistress or to be a slave? ;)
24 Sep 2013 04:21
If you're speaking of the BDSM lifestyle as a whole, then neither.
But I'm into light BDSM as a KINK, and I enjoy both roles. But I don't play out the whole mistress/slave scene. Just one of us takes charge, I guess.
It's strictly role-play and the occasional sexual power-exchange. Outside of sex, I have zero interest in either.
Topic The Friend Zone
23 Sep 2013 05:48
To the OP - quite honestly, it's your fault for not being upfront with her and telling her that you don't believe men and women can just be friends and explaining to her that opposite sex friendship has zero value to you unless you're going to get laid.
That's pretty much what you've spelled out in your post.
Many women are under the impression that friendship has value in and of itself, regardless of gender.
It sounds like a communication fuck up, but don't blame the girl for not putting out solely because she thinks you're a fun guy to hang out with now and then.

Topic Skincare 101
19 Sep 2013 03:59
Hey, I was thinking about starting a thread about sunless tanning. I have a pale skin like you, and like to keep a subtle glow in the winter to look healthier and hide some flaws (dark circles, etc).
Personally I use Banana Boat Self Tanning Lotion, and mix it about 50/50 with a moisturizer cream to obtain just a subtle glow. I use it every 3 days or so (2x/week) ; I apply it before going to bed and wash it off in the morning. I only use it for my face. I tried applying it to my whole body before, but it was too much trouble for what it was worth.
I read excellent reviews about Fake Bake, but Banana Boat Self Tanning Lotion is very good too and also rated amongst the best for a cheaper alternative (no streaks, non-greasy, non-comedogenic, etc). I used to buy them in packs of 3 from Amazon, for around $25.
PS: The active ingredient in sunless tanning products, DHA (dihydroxyacetone), has a limited shelf-life of around 7-8 months before it looses its effectiveness. I bought them in bulk before and had to throw some away because of that.
Yeah, the Fake Bake said you have to use it within 10 months. I think it's more than enough to last me through til spring. I haven't tried Banana Boat but I have tried one of those 'slow-tint' lotions (can't remember the brand but it gets lots of commercials) but I thought the smell was off-putting and I didn't think there much colour pay-off. Plus I didn't think the lotion itself was very hydrating or pleasant to use.
The nice thing about Flawless is that it's very concentrated so you just need a little spritz on the mitt and you can cover an entire arm or leg, no problem, just by lightly 'buffing' it in vs a lotion that you have to smooth on for total coverage and work into the skin and then worry about line demarcations. With the mitt, as it starts to dry out, its easier to blend into your regular skin-tone - especially if you just want something like a light colour on the tops of the arms where the sun would naturally hit without doing the underside. It runs $29 so not too bad in price, but they also have travel sized bottles for $16 if someone just wanted to try it out. For me, I think it would be hard to improve on this formulation based on all the stuff I've tried in the past.

Totally depends on the friends in question. With certain friends, our convo can get pretty raunchy sometimes, with others I keep things a little more sanitized.
If you talk about sex with these friends, I don't see the harm in a little share n' brag if you're doing it in a fun way.
ps. Congrats on the squirt! :)
