The overall story grammar here beats the hell out of all the other amateur erotic story sites. It's a slam dunk!

With regards to a top authors list for poets, I guess it doesn't matter if the top authors list includes poets. There used to be one though. Buz has the top poem at the moment. He's not on the top authors list. I've never seen ABG on the top authors list either and if she has a new poem out its going to be the most popular.
Again, thanks for your answers :).
The Top Authors lists rotates regularly. I am not sure, but I'm guessing every few hours or so. I did see my name on the list yesterday and its already rotated off. Gav set it up to rotate to get as many authors who currently have high scoring stories & poems listed as possible. It very well could be that you just missed seeing your name on that list.
As far as the Top Poems List, all I know is its based on score. I'm not sure how the number of votes matter for that. Maybe someone else knows more about how that works. I'm pretty sure that in a category's Most Popular section, that if several stories have the same exact score, the stories with the most votes are listed first. That could be the case with Top Poems or Stories over the last 31 days, but that would only be my guess. So don't count on that as factual.

Topic Should kids in the untied states have to say the pledge of alligence in school
15 Apr 2015 20:40
It should only be an option. Dictatorships notoriously require pledges. In Nazi Germany they had to pledge allegiance to Hitler.
I don't think a pledge should be required. Its an idea of big government and I dislike big government. I believe in freedom and personal liberty.
“When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.”

Earlier today, I posted very positive reviews for books by Metilda (Lillith Lo), Katherine Rollins and Frank Lee today on Amazon.
There are several other Lush authors posted through Lush Publishing on Amazon and I hope all you Lushites will check them out on Amazon and support them. If you get time to leave a great review for our fellow lush authors on Amazon that would sure be great. I've purchased a lot of Lush Publishing eBooks there and they really are hot reads.

Hot buttered popcorn at the movie theater; messy hot dogs at baseball games; the wind on my face when I ride my motorcycles; tailgating at football games; being in Sanford Stadium jumping up and down screaming "Touchdown!" when the Dawgs score; my wife in a tiny pair of lacy sheer panties just before I pull them off.

After I saw Sprite, Buz and Nymphwriter entered I thought why bother. But I'll probably enter to just prove I'm a hopeless optimist.
You can't use me as an excuse not to, I've never cracked the Top 3. I did come in 4th once and that story is over 60,000 views now, so it IS worth entering. The comp is a good one to put everything you've got into, push your skill to the max and try to surpass anything you've done before. Put 100% of your heart, soul and libido into and have fun writing it and that will show. Proof, proof and get another person to proof and submit it as perfect as you can make it. Then no matter what, you'll be proud of it, you will have done your duty to yourself and to the readers.
Topic Ladies, what is your ideal size package? Both cock AND balls ha

Ball sag has all to do with temperature. On a very cold day, the ball sack will tighten up close to the body for warmth. When the guy is sick and running a fever, the ball sack will hang extra low, away from the body because it is too hot. The length of sag is so that the testicles can be kept at perfect body temperature so they continue to produce and protect sperm.

I've had it done to me a lot, by both guys and girls, and I've done it to other girls, but not to many boys, though. It's an incredible intimacy. You really have to feel close to that person and trust them a lot (at least I do). Right after a shower is best.
My wife and I enjoy this, but like you said, Bethany, right after a shower.
Topic Would you rather be very wealthy, or live forever?
12 Apr 2015 19:42
Hmmm... Live forever: even if you just invested money modestly, in a few decades you could be wealthy, in a century or two, rich as stinking shit! But you might not be very happy watching everyone you care about pass over and over again.
The best wealth is in the people you love, the way you live your life and the positive way you improve the world around you. I'll take giving that my best shot.

Sprite, you are a bigger hero to me, as well as an inspiration.
Topic The Gun Control Debate Thread.
09 Apr 2015 17:49
Actually it is illegal to own a fully automatic rifle without a special permit. Those permits are usually held by someone who owns one of those 'tourist gun ranges' where people can pay to shoot them under professional supervision (at least we hope its professional). So the vast majority of fully automatic weapons are illegal and usually are in possession of criminals. Well, I guess if one is breaking the law by owning one, they are a criminal.
Of course one can easily find instructions on the internet for altering a gun to make it fully automatic. They can also learn to make bombs, fake IDs, create false identities, steal identities and a host of underhanded things on the internet.
I am all for background checks and waiting periods before someone can buy a gun. And quite frankly, if a person has been receiving substantial psychological counseling, they should not be able to buy a gun. Many consider that infringing upon their privacy. But consider the high percentage of mass killers that had no criminal record, but had been undergoing serious psychological counseling.
I have no problem with gun licenses and registration. I am licensed and all of my guns are registered as well as insured. I think gun safety classes are an excellent idea. In fact I'd like to see passing a gun safety class be a requirement to get a hunting license in all 50 states. I have encountered some truly irresponsible idiots when I've been hunting.
Topic Finland Educational System. Crazy Brilliant or just Crazy?
08 Apr 2015 20:47
This is a very interesting concept. As Beth brought up, I do wonder how it would work on early elementary age children. It also sounds like it expands on the group learning system and I wonder how that works with dominant personalities overshadowing shy and insecure kids. All children do not learn at the same speed or level, so would the students need to be broken into groups of like levels?
I know something serious needs to be done about the failing US educational system that really teaches students to be test takers and not much else. What I consider a very temporary result. Because of federal interference, schools basically teach for progress exams. From what I remember, much of what we learned we forgot very soon after the tests. We were not taught principles to apply in careers or life, just to pass that government prepared test that supposedly rated how the school scored against the national average. If the school beat the average, they were then eligible to receive government financial grants. Administrators would get bonus checks. If they scored under the average, they got nothing except bad publicity and warnings to get better. Oh, the federal government is brilliant! What a great way to get results like the infamous Atlanta Public Schools cheating scandal.
I've never had to use subjects like chemistry in real life, but the social skills I learned in school are invaluable.

Ps - go read my comp story - there's tommy guns in it and someone actually gets shot :D
I have a 'Tommy Gun', I really do. A Thompson submachine gun that is an antique collectors piece and it works. It is a helluva lot of fun to shoot. I have it insured. I have it with several other collectible antique guns locked away very safe in a vault. Those things aren't to be messed with, especially by amateurs. I am seriously anal retentive about gun safety and get really pissed off at stupid people with guns.
A dumbass with a gun is extremely dangerous to themselves and everyone around them for a long distance. And I get real angry at fools that shoot guns straight up in the air at New Years. Those bullets come back down and kill people. If there was true justice, the bullet would come down and hit the fool that shot it straight up.
Topic Story Research: Are there any police or deputies from the USA available?
08 Apr 2015 17:00
I am doing research of city police or sheriff's department lingo and terms for a Lush story. I would love to hear from someone so I can use authentic terminology/
The thing I've heard most in personal experience from law enforcement is, "Do you know how fast you were going?"
So I'd like to ask some specific questions. Please pm me and let me know if you're a policeman or policewoman or deputy or even a sheriff in the USA.
