I was watching a fictional TV program last night, one character was not so popular but found a self confidence from her cyber site. Her statue was stronger. She had a better self confidence and this moved out into her day i every way.

So I thought about how i was before lush and how i am now. I flirt that little bit more. I dress with a little more attention to detail.

Lush is forcing me to pay attention to detail i suppose.

So my Question to you is "Has Lush given you something to enhance your happiness in the physical world?

Hi tranq Big Hugs

It has given me a belief in my childhood desire to be a writer, I have met some awesome people here and it keeps me from being bored in my downtime sometimes. It is just a way for people to connect to people that maybe they never would have or some people to express feelings they can't.

I think it can.

Yes. Along with reading and personal reflection, it's allowed me to speak more freely, express myself in more ways than one, and been a place not unlike a tavern or café where you can just talk. Sometimes to myself, but once in a while with some good people. I think about those I know in the physical world, and wonder how much more intriguing or unruly they would be if they had such outlet to think out loud. FB and tweets fall far short than love of words, art, music, and naughtiness. It's too tame/boring.

True expression, and it's appreciation from others is more than likely to build that confidence and carry forth.

I agree with this. I didn't notice any change in my sexual life or in the way I approach others, but it's a nice novelty in my life to be able to express myself so freely with perfect strangers. The feedback is great too, though it occurs rarely at times.

Meh, some of us are twice bitten, and others are just not quite set in their chaise lounge. Give it time.

Not at all. In fact, it has taken a lot of my confidence away and made me believe that I am a crap person, which is why I stopped visiting here for a while. I'm not gonna let a website rule my life, so I'll step out every so often. Certainly, this place gets the blood pressure rising and not always in a healthy way and sometimes when you express an opinion (like I am now) you get chastised for it. My opinions are mine, don't trample me, okay? I will say one thing, and that is that I have improved as a writer. That's nice, though it isn't just because of Lush. There are pros and cons of this site, you just can't allow it to take over, as easy as it is.

My confidence is kind of in the middle. Lush made me decide that I wanted to go out on dates more (not sure how exactly). However, I still feel somewhat self-conscious, on and off Lush.

It definitely has, before lush I was too afraid to let any one read my stories. I thought they would think I was dirty minded. I have found a site devoted to people who like to express themselves sexually, being reading, chatting, or writing. Probably the best site I've ever found.

Would never Chastise you for expressing your opinions. I enjoy meeting new people and asking the questions that are curious to me. Thank you for your honest reply.

Lush is an avenue for me to pass on 'some' of my writings. Confidence, I have always had. In punctuations, sometime I'm lacking.director

Some of the people on Lush have been so kind and supportive, which has boosted my confidence overall. So indirectly, as the vehicle for that, I have to agree. My thanks to Nicola and the gang for working so hard to create that environment.

Has it changed me? I'm not sure but your posts and others have got me using the old grey matter again and I thank Lush for that.

Sexually the only thing it's done is make me realize I was even more of a depraved idiot than I thought I was.

I think in as a social outlet, lush can be a good laugh and alot of fun, you also meet some cool people. However, I actually think in a way, some of the dynamics for how this site works, can be confidence knocking, rather than boosting. We come here to chat sexual stuff, be enthralled by peoples sexual truth and freedom, and find ourselves getting hot under the collar the hot stuff we see.

But then, everywhere we navigate around the site, its pics of dicks, tits, pussies, facials, beautiful women, body builder men, orgies, fantasties and fithy stories, profiles of people we find attractive, pictures of real people exposing their sexuality and freedom. In a certain way, I think sometimes this can be detremental to self confidence.

The reason why is simple. I some of my time on here looking at profiles of women, or profiles of friends, looking at pics, having a chat, or reading bio's.... but no matter how much i desire the women i'm looking at or chatting to, there is a 98% chance it will never go any further than that. So what I desire... will never happen... and I'm not a big lover of the forbidden fruit principle, if the forbidden fruit is unobtainable in reality. The idea that something you desire might happen, is a much happier thought than knowing something/somebody you desire, will never happen, because it's almost unfeasible in the real world.

I look at womens pics, here, and although they do alot for me, I don't plaster their profiles with lavish comments, or drool uncontrolably at their pics. Partly because I have some confidence in my own body, but also I don't want to waste my life desiring something/somebody that is unrealistic in our lives. I prefer to just have a laugh here, meet people and enjoy the convo. I have sexual intrests here too, but I don't let myself be totally absorbed by it, because I am not the sort of guy to sit on the internet masturbing over somebody who isn't masturbating over me. This can actually be quite liberating to male psyche, and boosts self worth and confidence.

I suppose men should be used to it, our sexuality is catered for everywhere in society, from the pages of Maxim, to strip clubs in the town, to the porn industry on the net. Everyday, men are shown images of the kind of women they are suppost to find attractive, yet there is little advice of substance available to help men actually attract these women, which is why man men grow old, filled with desire, without a vast amount sexual fulfillment. This is why I like to concentrate on how to attract women, rather than, how to desire them (One reason I am such a fan of Neil Strauss, author of The Game).

Umm no. In fact my confidence went lower. I constantly see images if beautiful women and I feel very self conscious. The only difference here is that it is very very sexually explicit and that make me question how I feel about myself.

Yes it has to some degree. Personally, it's such a breath of fresh air to be able to connect with like-minded people freely. In a weird way, I feel like I have set a part of myself free and it sort of improved my personal relationships.

Using your grey matter? Are my sarcastic pranks really that hard to get? Think

Yes. I definitely think that lush has boosted my confidence in life outside of it. I've met some very cool people and I think it has made me feel better about myself in general.

My confidence has also been there, however, it has opened me up to new adventures! And has gotten me increasingly hornier, if that was possible.

I'm not schizophrenic in any way, if that was your interrogation. coffee

But now we should stop talking together, otherwise people will start to believe I'm just like you... a Scorpio, I mean.

It is a quality site....like minded people, good conversation and mature....don't like sites where people make such guttural, immature comments....like a bit of sophistication along with my erotica!

I know right? These two really seem to have something going on between them. Serene keeps saying he's not gay at all, but this makes me wonder. Like, seriously. He's so gentle and sensitive, surely he must be gay.

Wait. I'm actually one of those two? Damn! confused1


Seriously, if anyone wonders, this is just casual joking between dpw and myself. I'm 100% heterosexual and dpw is fully aware and respectful of that ; I'm simply comfortable with my own sexuality I guess.

So when I caught you kissing it was an experiment. dpw had his eyes closed and Serene ran away. He's just not that into it.

I know Serene. Why do people think gay men and straight men can't be friends? Not true.
