Topic Terrorists or Freedom Fighters?

This is what Mandela said at his 1964 trial about his organisation's adoption of violence as a tactic:

"Four forms of violence were possible. There is sabotage, there is guerrilla warfare, there is terrorism, and there is open revolution. We chose to adopt the first method and to exhaust it before taking any other decision.

In the light of our political background the choice was a logical one. Sabotage did not involve loss of life, and it offered the best hope for future race relations. Bitterness would be kept to a minimum and, if the policy bore fruit, democratic government could become a reality. This is what we felt at the time, and this is what we said in our Manifesto (Exhibit AD):


Mandela's techniques were quite obviously commensurate with those employed by the oppressors. They were certainly more than Ghandian peaceful resistance. But they were not open warfare. But the South African state was also limited in their approach.

The situation in Syria is much harder as Assad's government began its response with terrorism and so the response to Assad's terrorism has included terrorism.

Israel was born in terrorism against the Palestinians, what we now call ethnic cleansing and not surprisingly the response has been terrorism. In recent years there has been rather more violence aimed at civilians being ordered by Netanyahu than at Israeli civilians.

One of the reasons why the main Iranian opposition does not want the West to support the MEK is that they feel it will be counterproductive in the long run.

When desperate people resort to terrorism to achieve their ends it is an act of desperation. When a government does the same it is undermining the legitimacy of the state. Netanyahu, George W. Bush and Assad all deserve the condemnation of history for having resorted to terrorism. In all three cases more to prop up their own personal prestige than to protect the security of the state. Netanyahu heads a fragile coalition and wants to appear tough. Bush was the idiot who ignored the warnings about Bin Laden, prefering 'My Pet Goat' instead. Assad is just a tinpot dictator.

Not wanted to after the experience of a friend of mine's boss.

He was in the UK diplomatic corps, was drinking in the bar of a hotel in Shanghai. Got talking to a couple of girls (twins) in the hotel bar. After a while (and presumably a financial agreement) they went to his room.

The resulting video (all hotel rooms let to foreigners have hidden cameras) cost him his job and his marriage.

The double honeytrap is a staple of the Chinese PLA. There is a reference in Austin Powers and one of the Bond movies.

Topic Lesbians. Why not men?
Posted 09 Feb 2013 20:01


Thanks for the response. thumbup

I fully understand what you were saying. And I appreciate it. But I can say that many Lesbian women send similar things to straight women here on Lush (and I am sure they say the same in the real world as well), so I don't buy that as an excuse to have a chip on the shoulder. In fact I have been told that the Lesbian women here seem to think it is some kind of challenge to "get the straight woman". Now granted, I am sure that is not the case with ALL of the Lesbian woman here..... but... just showing that this type of behavior is not exclusive to straight men toward Lesbian women.


Some of the men here would like the lesbian girls to get the straight chick. It is part of our DNA, see 'Plan 23C':

1) Find girl who is into you, is she bi? if so go to step 3
2) Set up girl with lesbian girl to get her made bi
3) Get now bi GF to find another GF
4) Is new GF Bi? if not go back to 3
5) Get Bi GF and her Bi GF to do a MFF threesome
6) Gupping fishes time!

Needless to say if GF works this out and leaves at any point then go back to step 1. Alternatively, the guys would be quite happy to just watch.

More recreational than procreational, I am not at all sure why it is there. All I can say is that thank goodness I am a civilized cultured male who would never consider surrendering to such base instincts if there was anyone watching.

You needn't worry about that, I take the top 20-30 stories in each competition, put them all in a spreadsheet without their scores, and read the lot. 10-15 then get sent on to our judges.

Well I am not so much complaining about the result as the gracelessness of the folk who think that this is going to be helping them any. Its like cheating to win a hide and seek competition. If they lose then they are an even bigger loser because they couldn't even win by cheating and if they do win it then they know it doesn't count.

Do people really feel that the fame and adulation of the lush reader community is worth selling their soul for?

Your story was there or thereabouts this time. It was well written, but a little on the short side, if I recall correctly.

Cool, was it sufficiently obvious that it was what would have happened in the Dr Strangelove bunker after they set of the doomsday device? Or is that reference now obscure in this post cold war age?

Topic Lesbians. Why not men?
Posted 09 Feb 2013 15:17

Is it a love of the female form, or a repulsion of masculinity(or possibly bad experiences with men in the past)?(feel free to shoot me down here, I'm here to learn.)

I think that a large part of the reason many bi-women don't date men is that most are complete jerks. Now it probably doesn't help that many women find the 'complete bastard' alpha male type attractive.

What I find rather more puzzling is why any women find men attractive or want to put up with them. I find the female form far more attractive.

Topic turning down your husband/partner for sex, what is the meaning of it?
Posted 09 Feb 2013 14:56

Hubby "lets see. its cricket season....no wait is rugby season....oh wait i have a wife?"

Its not always the woman doing the turning down.


Lazy husbands seem to be a recurring theme here. Though the more common form is the 'only interested in his satisfaction' variety.

That reminds me of a complaint I got from a woman who is into the poly thing, 'I'm poly because I tried monogamy and I suck at it.' Her husband knew that when they got married and was OK with her dating other men. Then one of the dates became a regular boyfriend and hubby was OK with that. They drank beer together. Then they watched sports together. Then they spent time in the workshop together. Then... you can see where this is going.

Topic Terrorists or Freedom Fighters?
Posted 09 Feb 2013 14:20


Too simpole.
Rather over simplified.
Viet Cong fought to bring in Socialism which was/is against the advancement of human values.
They were fighting against people some or large number of whom were from South Vietnam, aided by American but they were leading Vietnam back into a rural
agrarian society.
Now when Vietnam has dropped out of the so called Socialist system, it is advancing.
If one looks at things from this angle, maybe its over simplification.

Terrorism is a tactic, not an ideology. Governments use terrorism as well. See Rumsfeld's 'Shock and Awe' in the invasion of Iraq or Israel's 'Operation cast lead'.

Right now the biggest war crimes problem we have right now is in Syria. The government is was and has always been a terrorist regime and not surprisingly, so are many of the opposition fighters.

Dropping bombs from planes on civilian populations is just as much terrorism as suicide bombing is. And trying to dress that type of military action up as 'acceptable' is one of the reasons that we find it rather hard to convince certain parts of the world that we are morally in the right.

Given the history of colonialism in the region, the West can hardly claim as much moral superiority here as you seem to imagine. Iran is in the shape it is today because the US decided to rub out the democratic government in 1953 and replace it with a dictator. Huge numbers of people died during the US occupation of the Philippines, etc. etc.

And one of the major complaints from the rest of the world is that the US still spends its time telling the rest of the world how superior it is morally and never gets round to acknowledging past sins, let alone saying sorry.

George W. Bush's torture policy was a form of terrorism. He has tarnished US prestige and probably made it impossible to actually put the remaining perpetrators of 9/11 on trial in anything remotely approximating a fair trial uless the US is willing to put the former President and his staff on trial as well.

I am also rather tired of certain US politicians such as Rudy Guiliani posturing about terrorism when they spent years helping raise millions of dollars for the IRA through NORAID.

Rather than lecturing the rest of the world about the evils of terrorism as if the US has unique expertise, it would be rather more effective if the US would spend some time listening to countries that have a longer experience of terrorism and have brought their terrorist issues to an end. Taking advice from the Israelis on terrorism is like taking advice on stopping drinking from a chronic alcoholic. The UK tried the same model at the start of the troubles and it only made matters much worse. When we switched to the West German model in '76, the so-called 'criminalization' policy, the number of deaths dropped to a third and stayed there or lower.

And before people get on their high horse and start shouting 'anti-american'. I'm one of the people who gets called on to clean up the mess left by the idiot neo-cons and their predecessors.

Are pumps supposed to feel good for the user or is it purely for size/aesthetics?

Topic Would you meet someone off Lush for sex?
Posted 07 Feb 2013 17:43

Well yes, of course. I am a guy and I have this thing called a penis attached to me. When I was younger he used to interrupt my thoughts every five minutes to suggest we go fuck someone. These days it only interrupts every six minutes and waits a whole ten minutes after I have just fucked someone. This is what we scientists call progress.

Actually asking a guy who is likely 6" taller and 50-150 lb heavier than the girl whether they would risk an in person meetup rather overlooks some rather fundamental biological and safety issues.

Now if you excuse me, my penis has just interrupted to point out that this thread might reveal the names of some women willing to engage in his favorite hobby. It seems he needs some amusement. Again.

Sorry Nicola but current opinion polling shows that US women really hate the gun nuttery and this is an issue that could persuade them to turn out in large numbers in the mid terms. Its going to be the main topic in US politics at least until Hilary runs in 2016.

Compared to most of the US politics issues this is tame. Last election we had the Republicans demanding Women seeking an abortion show ID and vaginal ultrasound examinations before voting.

Russian orthodox....don't know too much about it...

I was referring to this situation: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pussy_Riot

Back when the Soviet Union was still a going concern the cost of keeping the orthodox church going was that the priests were recruited from the KGB. Basically a KGB officer who couldn't hack it was put out to pasture in the church. The result is that the church is now completely under Putin's thumb.

Victor Sheymov, an ex KGB defector wrote about this in his book: http://www.amazon.com/Tower-Secrets-Real-Life-Thriller/dp/1557507643

The Pussy Riot girls went and staged a protest in the Cathedral of Christ our Savior that resulted in two year prison sentences for three of the girls. One has since been released on the technicality that since she was arrested before the protest she never participated in it.

The Pussy Riot girls are cute and hot and are going to be a major success on the international music scene. They will do even better if they learn how to write stuff thats not crap (they do slightly suck unfortunately). Madona's folk are working with them on that I hear.

Topic The Gun Control Debate Thread.
Posted 07 Feb 2013 14:56

Ok, one point. Noone who has not worn the uniform, trained , studied fought or bled for their country has one bit of right to insult the intelligence of the ones that do. I can almost guarantee that safely earned college education would fall short of what a service, past or present has to learn and use everyday.

Bullshit.

When I was at school we had a NATO brigader general come to the school and tell us that if the Russians invaded, they would overrun West Germany in three days. Therefore the UK needed its nuclear deterrent.

The stupid fuckwit hadn't noticed that the Soviet army was finding it impossible to hold on to the occupation of Afghanistan at the time despite the opposition being mostly irregulars with light arms. The terrain in Germany is not a great deal better for an occupying force and anyone who knows the history of the siege of Stalingrad knows that urban warfare is exceptionally bloody. The idea that the Russians were going to arrive with snow on their boots was utterly fucking stupid.

Then three years later when I was observing the anti-government protests in East Germany my own fucking Prime Minister was begging Gorbachev to send in the tanks to stop East Germany collapsing. The two faced bitch was saying one thing in public and the exact opposite in private. She wasn't at all worried by Soviet invasion, she just wanted to keep the cold war going to maintain her own power.

The US army spent the first four years in Iraq doing nothing but make matters worse because the generals in charge didn't have the guts to tell Bush that (1) Rumsfeld was totally incompetent or (2) they needed to apply the twenty years of existing doctrine in counter insurgency. I have friends in the Naval graduate school who were telling me that their students were utterly shocked when they discovered that the courses on the counter insurgency strategy being implemented by Petraeus were being taught from materials more than a decade old.

Right now the US military accounts for over half of all the military spending in the world and the generals don't think that is enough despite the fact that over half of the remaining military spending is by US NATO allies. Instead they are claiming that they are desperately underfunded.

Institutions that think they are above criticism are invariably corrupt. We are just looking at a new scandal of the Roman Catholic Church in Ireland, keeping 30,000 young women as slaves in brutal conditions. None of the people involved ever questioned the notion that something sanctioned by the church could be completely imoral.

That being addressed, as a member of the armed forces, but serving as an MP, I whole heartedly agree that all weapons shpuld be registered and all owners should undergo a background check. The class of weapon used is irrelevant, but if the owner has issues, the weapons should be taken until they are cleared. Before anyone raises their voice, that is the way its done on a military post. You can own weapons, no problem. The will be registered and the owners checked. Any instance comes up that warrants it, the weapons are held till its safe.

Anyone wants to have a weapon, they should go join the army and do it for real.

Otherwise it is just a hobby and nobody has the right to a hobby that results in 30,000 deaths a year. Nobody. It is just a hobby, the NRA goons need to get over it.

Reminds me of a joke about a rowing club which has to be read aloud to get the joke properly.

So there is a wedding of the rowing club captain and all the crew are standing outside with their oars making the traditional tunnel of oars salute to the happy couple. A young boy is walking by and calls out to his mother 'look at all them oars'. The mother is visibly shocked and says to her son, 'Them's not whores, there bridesmaids'.

Topic FAQ: Answers to some frequently asked questions...
Posted 07 Feb 2013 12:12

Feel free to add to the list but I am pretty sure we can call many of these.

Q: What are the best sex toys?

A: Plug in vibrator: Hitachi Magic Wand with variable speed control
A: Battery powered vibrator: Lelo
A: Butt plugs: Njoy pure plug, also magic wand
A: Sex Machine: Sybian

A: Mens? Other than butt plugs still nothing half as good for men as there is for women.

Q: Do women enjoy anal?

A; Some do, a lot. The anus is on the same wire as the vagina in the nervous system and stimulating the anus during orgasm can have a very powerful effect. It does not need to be a penis to have an effect, fingers also work.

Why did my story get a lower score than someone else's?

A: Either more people liked the other author's story or more guys want to sleep with her. If you are a woman you can choose which answer is less bruising to your ego.

Does Anal sex hurt?

A: Oh yes, it most certainly does if you get rammed by a guy who has no idea what they are doing. The point is that anal sex should not hurt at all and if it does hurt you need to STOP RIGHT NOW!

How do you do anal sex right?

A: Lots of prep and lots of lube. Start off with some gentle teasing without penetration, then work up to a finger or a small plug. Build up your confidence with larger toys/more finger and eventually you will be able to take a cock. One important caveat: don't use anything in your ass that could get lost. Those tales of strange objects found in emergency rooms are completely true and completely avoidable.

Which is better, trimmed or fully shaved?

A: Going down on someone and getting a mouthful of pubic hair is not a turn on for most people. Beyond that it is a matter of aesthetic taste.

What is Saddlebacking? Is it real?

A: Saddlebacking, otherwise known as 'technical virginity' is preserving your virginity by only having anal sex. Named after Saddleback church which once put out an unfortunately worded pamphlet on abstinence only education. It is a very real and has been around for centuries, as in the old verse, 'Be a virgin in front and a martyr behind'.

You sound quite experienced in anal?

A: Yes

Know anyone who could help a girl pop her anal cherry?

A: Leave me a message L16

You might find that a little impractical. The altar stone originally stood 2meters high. It has fallen over since which makes sex on it a little more practical but it has also had another stone fall on top.
