90% of this site is pure fantasy. That said, why would you pop into a profile without having chatted with the person before hand? And why does it matter what they have as an avatar, if you're basing your interest on a picture that says more about you than them.

No way... I totally profile surf more now than I did when I first signed on to Lush. I was into writing my stories and wasn't here to make friends. Now I check out friends music and let it play in the background while I work on other tabs.

Oh... and my new AV is the best depiction of me to date. All 4 personalities. clown

I for one haven't written anything yet. I plan to, and I really hope that most of the people will come for the stories, not because of my pic. But, to answer your question, I don't really care if a guy has an avi of a girl or not. I just kind of feel sorry for guys who do that. They want the profile views or the bazilian friends. I'm here for different reasons. So there.

There is an easy way to take care of this though.... add SEX to the information that shows up under the Avatar. Heck, you could also add sexual orientation as well. It is pretty easy to do and would not really be a drain on the system. Problem solved.


I doubt that will ever happen.

First I want to thank overmykneenow for his work on the stats.... I have thought of doing something similar.

I kind of figure this out when my wife (Goddess_Lexi) put up a story and had more votes in a day then mine had in a week.

Yes there are advantages to a hot female pic but there are disadvantages to. Like mindless friend requests with nothing but a cock pick and the words "let me please you with this". She gets a lot more friends request then I do but turns most of them down. In the case listed above she turned it down. Then almost immediatly got a 2 vote on her story and saw that the guy deleted his profile. Coincidence....I think not! lol

I just take the whole view/votes thing with a grain of salt. It is what it is.

The only thing that bothers me is I took that picture of her and does anyone thank me.... Noooo... no pats on the back... no way to go man... nothing... lol

As far a "fake avatars", I always read a persons profile first. If I liked their story does it matter if they are male or female.
Then again I am a hypocrite, I mostly read stories by women. Also there are a lot more men on here then women. Click the active visitors link and add them up...

You know I think I am going to go read a story written by a guy. Show a little platonic bro luv!

The last time I checked into it, I found that good writing, just like taking out the garbage contrary to popular belief, is NOT a sex-linked characteristic.

And I almost forgot - yes that is meinmy avatar. That photo was taken in about 2003 or so, while I was playing for an outdoor wedding. SInce I am obviously reading a chart, I am probably playing "Sophisticated Lady", which the bride requested as the music for her mothers entrance. (I still don't know the changes to that tune.) LOL

how sad... :sigh:

Lol...I don't think I ever heard writing compared to taking out the garbage before...but, I guess there are some similarities now that I think about it...

Hmm. Does that mean I need to change my avatar? Because it's misleading?

It looks alright to me...providing that's really your picture...

I just came across this one...does this look legit to everyone?

i believe the avatars you choose should reflect something of yourself. lets be honest, everyone sees it. its almost like a fight impression. but as long as you like it then i guess it doesnt matter.

Regardless of your avatar, your writing is sexy, beautiful and heartfelt. That is why I love it and you.

It doesn't matter what the avatar is but I do find it a bit misleading. Especially when the woman is very hot only to find out its a guy. Que sera sera!!!!!!!

I would guess that lots of peeps are visual, therefore, they want to believe in the pic.....but in all actuality, does it really matter?...JMO!

I'd whole-heartedly agree, but I guess it's just that without an avatar to hook people, they're just not going to read something that's potentially good. It seems clear from this initial study that if votes are what someone's after, putting a female avatar up will yield almost three times as many votes as the default red male av, irrespective of it being any good or not. Sad but true.

@ phoenix69: cheers, much obliged.
