Topic Do you rate other authors?
Posted 09 Feb 2011 05:06

Hmmm, interesting thread. I will admit that I only give fours or fives but I give them wholeheartedly to stories that I think deserve them. If I don't like a story or poem I will not rate it at all nor will I leave a comment. On rare occassions I have left constructive criticism but only for people who I feel are mature enough to take it. I have always followed Voltaire's dictum : "If in doubt whether an action is good or evil, refrain."

I do at least some research for most of my stories but at the end of the day I believe you have to write about what you know and then go to great lengths to embellish it.

Research might involve watching people on the train and noting what they are reading, wearing, talking about or just the general vibe that they have. I've often found myself thinking, "I would have never imagined someone like that."

Where sex acts are concerned, I've talked to people and watched hours worth of porn over the years, 't is an endless fountainhead of ideas........

As Dancing Doll is proposing to do, I would encourage everyone to try writing a story from the perspective of the other gender. My 'Slave Princess' series was my first attempt at this and judging from the feedback I've got from some of the ladies who have read it, I seem to have done a credible job. I'm now I'm planning some future stories from a woman's point of view. The chance to step into the shoes of the other gender is denied to most of us and for me it has been an interesting experience.

Channeling your 'inner guy or girl', as Doll puts it, is great and allows you to connect with a side that is in all of us but that we might have lost touch with.

In answer to Polynices (great ancient Greek name btw) We used books before Wiki, YouTube and Google and I still find great inspiration in a good book.

Topic that's hot .... or is it really?

The point tends to get lost in long threads like this and so in answer to the main point; If Paris Hilton comes back as Jenny smith in the next life and spends her time volunteering at an orphanage, studying to better herself and baking cupcakes then I would certainly give her a second look.

Paris herself may stop being a waste of space one day and actually use her fame and money to contribute something good to society............we await that day.

Topic that's hot .... or is it really?
Posted 25 Jan 2011 11:44

I can say, without any shadow of doubt in my mind, that I do not find Paris Hilton attractive.
Sure, she exhibits quite a few of the commercially acceptable attributes of beauty. Attributes such as facial symmetry…..and…..and….er…

Her sexiness is superficial in the extreme and once the looks are lost, and time will take them away, have no doubt, she will be forgotten – a footnote in the history of taste and fashion or lack there of.

She is simply one of these people who is famous for being rich and for being skanky and in the 21st century with our fondness for celebrity, she fits the bill of someone who is merely famous for being famous.

Hot? I think not.

A quick cricketing joke if I may..........

One night, two West Indian cricketers were taking a pee off the Sydney Harbour bridge. Suddenly one turns to the other and says, "Gee the water's cold!" To which his mate adds, "Yeah and there's lots of rocks on the bottom."

On their way to the shrine of Saint Francis at Assisi, a bus load of Irish Catholic nuns were involved in a tragic freeway accident that resulted in their deaths.

They all went up to Heaven of course and there, outside the Pearly Gates, they were met by Saint Patrick (it was Peter’s day off)

Saint Patrick stood behind a low table upon which there was a large bowl of holy water. The saint told the nuns to line up. To the first nun he said,

“Now sister before I can admit you through the gates I must ask you one question. Have you ever touched a man’s penis with any part of your body?”

“Well….yes, St Patrick. I used to care for the old and that involved washing them. So I might have touched a penis with my hands while washing an old man.”

“Very good, now dip your hands in the holy water and you can pass through the gates.”

Saint Patrick asks the next nun the same question and she tells him that she used to be an army nurse and she accidently touched a soldier’s penis once with her elbow while treating his injuries.

“Very well then, dip your elbow in the holy water and you can pass through to Heaven.”

Suddenly, a great commotion is heard at the back of the line and one of the younger nuns rushes forward.

“Please sisters, please, you’ll all get a turn,” says Saint Pat, but the young nun just looks at him and bellows,

“I want to rinse my mouth with that water before sister Agatha dips her ass in it!”

Two leprechauns go to visit a priest. The priest agrees to see them. The first leprechaun asks,

“Father we was wondering if you know whether female leprechauns become nuns? Have you ever heard of a female leprechaun becoming a nun.”

The priest is puzzled and intrigued by this question and promises the leprechauns to do some research and he asks them to return in a few days. The leprechauns thank the priest and depart.

A few days later they return and the priest tells them, “I’m sorry boys, I looked through all the annals of the Catholic Church in Ireland and there is not a single reference to a female leprechaun taking the veil.”

The first leprechaun turns to the second who is looking rather ashamed of himself by now, and says,

“See, I told ya! You’ve been fucking penguins again.”

A midget walks into a bar in Dublin with a cat and an ostrich. They sit down for a while until the midget gets up and orders three drinks. When the three have finished their drinks, the ostrich goes up to the bar and orders three more. During the course of the evening the midget and the ostrich take it in turns ordering drinks for themselves and for the cat. The bar tender is watching them the whole time and when it's the midget's turn at the bar again, the bar tender asks him,

"Hey, all night long you and your ostrich friend there have been buying all the drinks and the cat hasn't put his hand in his pocket once. Why?"

"Well, it's like this ya see. A whiles back I was digging in me garden and I digs up a lamp. I hopes it would be a magic lamp so I rubs it and, sure as me mother was born in Derry, out comes a genii. Now this was only a two wish genii and after giving it some thought I said, "" I want a bird with long legs and a tight pussy.""

Topic Finding schoolmates on Facebook, Pros and Cons?
Posted 16 Jan 2011 04:49

Yep, I've done this. I met up on Face Book with classmates from way back in the early to mid seventies. There were: the restless and insecure ethnic kids like me, the overweight girl with a heart of gold now a single mum comfortable in her own skin, the cooly arrogant over achiever who now finds himself perpetually single and a lot humbler, the clever girl with glasses, who I did have a crush on, who is now a world renouned physicist, the mentally ill and yes, inevitably, the suicides...............

It was quite an experience.

Topic Taking the 'N' word out of Huckleberry Finn.
Posted 07 Jan 2011 22:29

Whoever thinks that Huckleberry Finn should be altered to make it more politically correct has either never read the book or totally failed to understand it.

Mark Twain was a pioneering champion of the Afro-American cause. In my opinion he stands up there with Frederick Douglas, Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King Junior. Why dilute and emasculate his work and its message by changing his words ?

Topic The Root of All Lust: Why Lush Stories is a Great Convenience
Posted 30 Dec 2010 20:15

Konrage said " Stories told in literature by good writers, however, bear weight and realism and that raw undercurrent of the author's deepest, all-too-human desires. Their hungry animal of lust is allowed to come tearing into the open, ripping into each of us with the most primal of admissions, through either true story or fiction, and at the end, the real world substantiality of the described events doesn't matter; what matters is that we were all briefly exposed to someone's most inner truths, and we all of us got off to it in one way or another."

I could not agree more !

I've been following this thread of yours Konrage with great interest. Personally, let me thank you for all your positive feedback on my own work. Not only is it very encouraging and keeps me working but it makes me damn happy - I can't put it more simply or honestly than that. Thank you for having the patience to read my long, multi chapter stories. I honestly think you are one of the few readers here that are capable of lasting the distance.

With regard to Dancing-Doll's "The Cabo Connection," I can do no better than to repeat the comment I made after first having read it : This story embodies everything that this site is about; cool, creative, sexy, sophisticated and articulate.

Enough Said !

Topic 63 year old Elton John becomes a parent
Posted 28 Dec 2010 17:23

If you'd asked me ten years ago what I thought of someone becoming a dad at 45, I would have said they were insane. Now that I've done it, I have to eat my words.

My guess is that Elton's son will have a whole gaggle of nannies to bring him up, change him, feed him, nurture him etc - all paid for by Elton and David. There is no reason that the boy won't have a great life and in a few years he stands to inherit millions. Taking Elton as a role model need not be a bad thing either, as the star is a great humanitarian, supports charities and is generally now leading a stable, drug-free life.

As long as they are consenting, adult aliens then non-violent sex with them would be fine.

I was going to write a story along the lines of Romeo & Juliet using 'Predators' and 'Aliens'. I got as far as the balcony scene and then I realised that their reproductive organs would be totally incompatible.
