Topic How to know when you're too picky?
Posted 19 Nov 2015 05:05

THIS. i've spent a lot of time being single because i don't simply want to enter a relationship just to be with someone. i had friends in college who always had to have someone and they seemed rather unhappy. it was then that i decided that i wasn't going to venture down that road.

over the years, i've grown to like my own company. you should because if you don't like being with you -who else will? i've learned what i truly like and dislike. this has helped make me aware of what it is that i'm looking for in others. not to say that i mind finding ppl that don't fit into that box. they make it more interesting.

finding someone that you connect with is a wonderful feeling! i don't see why you would deny yourself that by just going along with whomever shows interest. take time when deciding who to be with, you're worth it.

Nia has said it for me. Its not so much about being "picky" or setting a standard, but being happy with my own company. If I find someone special then that's cause for celebration, but I'm not scared or alarmed at being on my own in the meantime.

Topic What have you been reading this year?
Posted 16 Nov 2015 06:14

For my money, the best novel I've read this year is unquestionably Patricia Highsmith's 'The Price of Salt'. It was her second work (published in 1952 under the pseudonym Claire Morgan), coming out two years after her classic 'Strangers on a Train'. It is a poignant and beautifully-written lesbian love story.

What makes it extra-exciting is that 24th November is the US release date for the movie of the book: 'Carol', starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, and directed by Todd Haynes. It has already received a 95% score on Rotten Tomatoes' Tomatometre.

I would strongly advise you to read the book first. Reprints are starting to emerge on the internet (go to the admirable for the best secondhand bargains). But if you want an original Bantam Books first edition, it's going to set you back $90!

Thanks for the recommendation! I saw a trailer for the film last night and it looked very impressive. Will definitely check out the book.

And I have come late to, and have been devouring, Phil Rickman's Merrily Watkins series. Perhaps not terrible highbrow but thought provoking and a very good read.

Topic MILF question
Posted 15 Nov 2015 15:25

Well MILF is a term from porn, however the attraction for younger men to older women is a definite phenomenon.

Some years ago, an older and wiser woman friend told me that when I hit my late 30's that the younger men would start flocking, as had been her experience. I was a bit sceptical, as my previous experience was being hit on from older guys or men my own age but she was absolutely right.

Its nice to have options... angel7

Topic Tips for dealing with a rejected story.
Posted 14 Nov 2015 15:29

When a moderator asks you politely to make changes to your story or poem so that it can meet our standards on Lush, we do expect you to comply and make edits before you resubmit. Totally ignoring those requests over and over can actually result in either loss of posting privileges or suspension.

Senior Story Verifier

With a sense of utter terror I submitted my first story to Lush some months ago. The lovely Buz was the moderator for my story and pointed out some really obvious problems with the dialogue/speech formatting. He must have seen this a million times but was so patient with his explanation and help. When I replied and thanked him for his tips (with some embarrassment) for such a glaring error he could not have been more encouraging or more kind.

All you Mods give your time and hard-earned experience unstintingly. A huge thank you to you all!

Topic Night of Terror - Paris - Nov 13, 2015
Posted 14 Nov 2015 08:27

If I may add my piece here. I'm not sure that people who have never known Paris fully understood what happened last night. It was not a random attack on some café. The Xth and XIth are the most multicultural, most progressive and outgoing neighborhood in Paris. It's where you find friends without even meaning to. I cannot count the hours I spent laughing in cafés in Oberkampf and concerts I saw in the Bataclan and elsewhere. Or even the games I saw in the Stade de France. Like for Charlie Hebdo, the men who attack us want to destroy fun, youth, and laughs. They are sucking the life out of my country.

Joan Sfar's cartoon was not hostile to religion. But we have plenty of solemn people around, praying and singing hymns. We appreciate it but we don't need it. So if you read this, go to a concert this evening! Find yourself with some friends! Open a bottle you shouldn't, kiss someone you like and make love to them.

And think about us. Because I'm too hurt to do any of that right now.

Topic How do you remove hair from the shaft of your cock?
Posted 12 Nov 2015 16:26

Don't be a sissy. Be a man. Use duck tape and yank it out.

Jaysus, Buz. I am a girl and I winced at that!!

And a cock with the odd stray hair is very distracting in the way it kind of gets caught in your mouth.

No extreme measures needed, but some sort of (gentle) hair removal is a good idea.

Topic What is your favorite romantic movie?
Posted 26 Oct 2015 15:57

These are all I can remember:

Shakespeare in Love
The Notebook
Princess Bride
The Prince and Me
Never Been Kissed

Shakespeare In Love is an absolute favourite of mine but I never have thought of it as being in the romance genre. Yes, its about love, but also about history, poetry,wit, life in Elizabethan London and very, very funny. However if it can be viewed as a Romantic Movie, it goes in my top 5! :)

Topic Hipster or High Waist jeans for a girl with nice bum ?
Posted 23 Oct 2015 16:57

as someone with a pronounced posterior lol, i have to say that i DETEST low rise jeans! i've had too many times where underwear have made an unscheduled appearance. i've found that a good mid rise jean is perfect. i often lean toward a boot-leg cut. however, i like the casualness of boyfriend jeans and the convenience of skinny jeans for tall boots. i would NEVER attempt to wear high waist jeans!

Everyone has said it already. I do not want to look like a granny and would love to be able to wear low rise jeans. But its all about body shape. Being a classic hourglass I am full in the hip and thigh, and and quite long from waist to hip, which in low rise jeans produces the dreaded muffin top, so its mid rise for me. I would love to wear boyfriend jeans too, but no hope with my figure so its bootcut or skinnies (with a long tunic top).

So much easier when women only wore skirts!! dontknow

Topic Advice before submitting a story
Posted 23 Oct 2015 15:58

Great advice from Principessa and the other Mods and contributors here.

When I submitted my first story a few months ago, I got it back from the Mod (the lovely Buz) with the clearest advice about the problem with it - basically not putting speech in separate paragraphs. I messaged him back as I was mortified that it hadn't occurred to me, and he just couldn't have been nicer about it. His positive and encouraging attitude made all the difference.

You all do a fantastic job moderating a huge amount of stories a dizzying variety of sexual content and styles. I am in awe!!

Topic The way you flirt. Any patterns?
Posted 23 Oct 2015 14:15

absolutely! it all depends on what you want the end result to be. am i expressing interest? wanting to give a smile? creating sexual tension? or just helping time pass? all give VERY different results...

Often a little light flirting can just make ordinary social situations just that bit more fun. A nice smile and lots of eye contact can make someone's day a little brighter and is only good manners.... evil4

Topic Can I get an interview with you?
Posted 22 Oct 2015 14:39

Introduce the title of your story: A Compromising Marriage
Genre/Category: Historical
Provide the link:

1. What first inspired you to write this particular story?

I was writing a totally different type of story based in the same era, so when the new Historical Category was launched it just seemed natural to use my research for a Lush story too.

2. How did you come up with these characters?

My non-erotic story is about a young woman in the early nineteenth century from a very caring family with comfortable resources, and it just made me think about someone of a similar background in less fortunate circumstances, and fewer options.

3. How does it differ from some of your other stories?

This is my first fully-fledged erotic story.

4. What was the most challenging thing about writing this piece?

Trying to give sufficient relevant, seamless historical background within the competition word limit!! Also having written the story in a Regency Romance style, I didn't want to ruin the story by making the erotic element seem crass or out of place - but at the same time it needed to be really sexy. That was tricky and I hope I succeeded to some small extent.

5. Anything else you want to tell us about it?

I got really intrigued by the idea of a young woman who was limited by the sexual mores of her time. The notion of making her this passionate woman who was trapped by her circumstances, and finding a way to overcome that without overtly rebelling in a way that would de-stabilise her existence really caught my imagination.

Topic Where are my badges?
Posted 20 Oct 2015 07:35

I have noticed that some people have badges here. Obviously, you've forgotten to give me any. I would like one of each, please.

Cleo, you don't need the badges, honest! There's no tuna or milk involved with them. No bits of paper to chase around the room or sit on in a sunny spot.

If I were you I'd just stick with friends to worship you.... notworthy

Topic How do you feel toward your parents?
Posted 19 Oct 2015 13:32

My parents have always been very hard work and high maintenance. Even as a young child I felt like the roles were reversed and I was the adult dealing with a pair of demanding and spoiled children

The pattern of my life is that when I needed help or support I was ignored or shouted at and when they needed help or a listening ear I was expected to jump. Not particularly healthy life lessons.

At least, despite their behaviour, as they have grown older and frail I feel I have done my duty and been a good daughter.

So that's what I feel towards my parents; wariness at any verbal batterings or emotional demands coupled with a sense of duty to do my best under trying circumstances.

Topic WEIRD Irish Girl's Names...

So... IN WELSH... W and Y are FUCKING VOWELS???

(That's FUCKED UP!!!)


xx SF

Yeah, I blame the mead!! ;)

So W is an "oo" sound (both short and long) and Y is an "i", "uh" or "ee" sound.

Not tricky or anything!! *beams*


Topic WEIRD Irish Girl's Names...
Posted 16 Oct 2015 11:30

While I HAVE you, WHAT IS THE STORY with the WELSH language? (Did THE ENGLISH charge you EXTRA per VOWEL???)

The IRISH language does not contain the letters, J, Y, X, Q, Z, W, K or V. (FACT!)

It DOES contain all those SOUNDS!!! (HONEST!!!) So, for example, in the name Medbh, (Maave!) the V sound is spelt with the 'dbh' lettering!

You MAY find THIS funny:

xx SF

Well actually Welsh has 7 vowels (tosses head and looks all superior ;) which are:

A, E, I, O, U, W and Y.

Yes, really.

But like Irish we don't have J, X, Q, V or K either. angel7

Topic WEIRD Irish Girl's Names...
Posted 16 Oct 2015 08:49

Prompted by a post by my Welsh friend CurvyGalore, I thought I'd mention a few Irish Girl's names that you might not be familiar with.

My name, (Stephen) in Irish is STIOPHAN, (Stee-Oh-Fawn) Except in SOME REGIONAL IRISH ACCENTS they pronounce that Stiff-On. (You can IMAGINE the fun they had with that at my school...)

xx SF

I am suitably honoured Stephen! :)

A lovely list! There is another beautiful Irish girl's name Caoimhe (usually pronounced Key-vuh, but Stephen will correct me if I'm wrong) which I am always flummoxed about spelling properly whatever the variation.... dontknow

Jenni Clark WHERE are you NOW! (I know... Least WELSH name in the WORLD...) The friend was called, AND I'M SERIOUS, GRAWOR... (That's a GIRL'S NAME in WALES!!!)

I honestly came over all wrinkled browed and flared nostrilled about your long, lost Jenni Clark and was about to ask; " Yes, but where was she from? And who were her family?" in deeply suspicious, very Welsh tones. Old habits die hard.... evil4

And no, her friend was not named GRAWOR but Grawr, which is the Welsh word for the dawn. *rolls eyes* dontknow
