Topic What did you have for breakfast?
28 Sep 2015 11:25
Lies! I heard it was a six-inch stack of pancakes, slathered in butter and maple syrup, with a side order of crispy, applewood smoked bacon. And a black coffee.
Aaaaand a doughnut.
Actually I'd rather have eaten a sexy redhead slathered in syrup for breakfast. Tongue through the donut hole, of course. And maybe a quick game of 'find the blueberries'. Still low cal. but plenty of sugar. :)

Topic Advice for my story idea
27 Sep 2015 09:05
Thanks for the advice, everyone. I really appreciate the helpful feedback and suggestions. So based on the responses that my thread has elicited so far, I think I'll divide the story into the three chapters, with each being a fully developed story by itself. The first will pertain to the existing relationship between the husband and wife, as well as the obstacles that they've encountered in trying to have a child, while the third will detail the husband's motivation for deciding to allow the masseur to impregnate the child. In your opinion, will the tripartite division enable the readers to understand the decision making processes motivating the central protagonists? Again, thanks
I don't think you need to elaborate on their fertility struggles so much that it needs its own chapter and heavy storyline and detailing.
Just infuse it into the present-day story you're telling. You can weave in little snippets of the backstory where appropriate - to explain why she's distant at first, or why her mood is improving with the new scenery and living circumstances or how devoted the husband is to her happiness etc. The reader will be able to fill in the rest with their own imagination.
You can start in Singapore and in showing us who these characters are in a seemingly unrelated scene (shopping, unpacking, morning coffee, post-sex pillow talk etc), their whole struggle can be revealed in the way they behave, converse, and in how they relate to each other.

As Mazza mentioned, I would definitely establish the dynamic of the couple before they go the masseur. Earlier in the story, you could use the move to Singapore to mention how there is hope that the wife will be able to immerse herself in a new culture and explore a new city and have something to focus on, thus hopefully taking her mind off their infertility issues and her longing to have a child of her own etc. You could even mention that they'd been trying IVF in Australia etc without success and the couple was hoping the move would be a fresh start for their marriage, away from the stresses of trying to conceive.
I think this would help the reader understand and empathize with the husband's decision later on during the sex scene.

Topic Review: Icicles Collection (Glass Dildos)
22 Sep 2015 10:44
I have a very basic curved double-ended glass one - one with a smooth end and the other with gentle smooth graduated balls. I really wish I had gotten one with ridges and bumps. The sales person at the store I bought it from considered herself an expert in glass toys and insisted I need to 'build up' to the more interesting models and that the ridges and bumps would be 'too much for me'. *sigh*. I like the model I have for g-spot stimulation and hot/cold play mostly. Glass toys are so pretty.

Does lube help ease the 'oh no' sensations and the irritation on the seam?
I can see it being a fun one for BDSM or for one partner to use on another while restrained.
The price is great on this one.

These look really great! I like the intense curve on this model. I'll admit, I'm kind of crushing on the silver Njoy Pure Wand you posted as well!
Fantastic review, SP!

Topic Wine Ice Cream - Has anyone tried these?
17 Sep 2015 09:18
Ooooh - I haven't tried these. They look amazing though - especially the Cherry Merlot and Chocolate Cab!
I've tried champagne jelly before and wasn't a huge fan, but you can't go wrong with ice-cream. :)

Death and seeing people in genuine grief. Whether it's personal to me, fictionalized in a movie, funerals of people I barely know (or don't know), certain news stories. The tears flow. My worst break-up pales in comparison to losing a loved one, so even seeing others in that kind of pain instantly brings sympathy tears.

Topic How do you react when you see a guy with a bulge?
26 Aug 2015 11:14
Accidental bulges happen - not a big deal. If it's a stranger, I pretend I haven't noticed, in case he's easily embarrassed. If I know him (or he's hot), I might smile like the girl in the pic.
If it's a creepy guy leering and trying to get me to notice his bulge, it's a whole different (unattractive) thing.
Topic Fear the Walking Dead - the new spin-off
26 Aug 2015 10:48
I had been hoping they would touch on the origins of the virus ie. what started it, how did it become airborne so quickly (and globally). I read an interview with Robert Kirkman who said the show isn't about that (or concerned with it), however I thought one of the strongest episodes on TWD was the one with Dr. Jenner, the scientist, at the CDC explaining how the virus reanimates the basic core of the brain. I would love to see more of that.
It also might have been cool to see a glimpse into different pockets of characters (eg. EMT, hospital staff, government, news reporters etc). I think it would have been interesting to go beyond this core family and then have all the characters converge later on.
Re the main family. I agree with others, I'm not feeling the parental units at the moment, or the sulky teenage girl. Unlike everyone else however, I absolutely love the Nick character. He's by far and away the most interesting one on the show and Frank Dillane's acting is absolutely stellar. He approached the role of a junkie with considerable complexity and vulnerability and I was kind of blown away actually. I thought he stole every scene he was in and I started feeling like maybe he was the main protagonist and the parents were the backseat characters. I'm already invested in him. The others.. not so much (yet).
There were a few lapses in believability that were frustrating with the parents and maybe that's why I'm turned off them - ie. why would Travis hear about a massacre at a drug den (involving blood and viscera ) and then think the smartest thing to do was to go there... to the drug den. At night. And then, after seeing the mess himself, instead of calling the cops, he brings his wife there, who shrugs it off as "well, bad things happen all the time in places like this." What?? Come on, did you not see the viscera?? lol
Anyway, I get they were trying to move the plot along, but I'm hoping to see more genuine reactions in the next few episodes... sometime more along the lines of Frank Dillane's Nick character rather than this furrowed-brow, confused but weirdly calm, "what's going on here", styled take on everything. Especially in the final scene with the drug dealer... I'm kind of missing the shock and panic with those two. Maybe since it's LA, they're a little slower to startle..
I do like the pacing though. I appreciate the slow-burn compared to TWD and I think the show has a lot of potential (as long as they don't kill Nick). I'm looking forward to the next episode.
ps. Anyone else think the first zombie, Gloria, was kinda hot?
