Topic Lush V2 Bug List
Posted 26 Oct 2011 18:37

After nearly 36 hours, Lush V2 is finally here.

If you find anything odd,


I guess it's just different, so I'll point it out...when I go to my page, all my comments are showing, back to 2009...I used to have to click on "Older Comments"...

Just thought I'd mention it...no biggie...

Yeah, I was going to mention that for people with a massive quantity of wall-posts, it takes a loooong time to load a profile page in the current format. lol

Kudos to you though Gav, things are looking good!

Topic I Phone
Posted 25 Oct 2011 10:35

I assume you're talking about a spin off of this 'study'...

I wouldn't put much stock into it. OkCupid isn't exactly the New England Journal of Medicine.

iPhone and Sex ] Dating site OkCupid has completed a study about its users’ smartphones and sexual history and has determined that among people who use smartphones, iPhone users have the most sexual partners, followed by BlackBerry users and finally Android users.

OkCupid looked at the data hidden in the images that users uploaded as profile pictures to see which cameras were used to take them — including smartphone cameras. With many of the site’s users also having taken personality tests like “The Dating Persona Test” or “The Slut Test,” which ask for a count of sexual partners, the site was able to cross-reference that data to complete the study.

In one approach, the survey sample was restricted to people aged 30. That way, differences in the usual ages of users of one smartphone type or another couldn’t affect the results. Among Android users aged 30, the average man had accumulated six sexual partners in his lifetime, while the average woman had accumulated 6.1. Among BlackBerry users, the number was 8.1 for men and 8.8 for women. Male iPhone users had 10 sexual partners and female iPhone users had 12.3

We’ve included OkCupid’s chart for that data below. We’ve also included another chart in which OkCupid mapped out and compared smartphone owners by age from 18 up through 40. While the sizes of the gaps varied, the iPhone, BlackBerry and Android rankings remained the same.

This data was tagged on as a bonus on a blog post about which cameras, camera settings and photography techniques resulted in the most attractive profile pictures. As you might have guessed, the higher the camera quality, the better the result in many cases.

The post is just the latest in a series of fascinating studies by OkCupid based on user data. In the past, the OkCupid blog debunked several of the biggest dating profile picture myths and found the ideal first message length for would-be lovers.

Topic Erotic Stories Dos or Do Nots?
Posted 24 Oct 2011 12:07

When I want to have a male as my main character, I write the entire story in third person but tell the story from the male character's perspective.

I have started a story that is male-first person but I haven't completed it yet (definitely more of a challenge to get just right).

For me, it's definitely a bit more awkward writing as a man. Even for my male-perspective third-person stories, I have to get into the right frame of mind to take into account how a guy would react to and interpret certain situations. Sometimes I will do a bit of research and ask a guy first, especially if it involves certain sex acts that I can't experience myself because of my gender.

I think everyone has an "inner guy" or "inner girl" that they can channel when writing for the most part... as long as you've had enough life experience with social situations. You can also base the character on someone you know in real life (something I've often done for my male characters).

I don't think there is anything wrong with writing as the opposite gender as long as you can pull it off, and make the character more than a two-dimensional stereotype of their gender.

Topic Does body type really matter?
Posted 24 Oct 2011 08:27

If they're in my 'bed' and we're having sex, I assume they've already passed the test when it comes to a body type that I find attractive. In that respect, it does matter. If you're talking about little flaws that were not noticeable while they were clothed, then no, it's not that big of a deal. I think it also depends on how 'into them' you are. If you have a real connection, then you're way more likely to overlook physical imperfections, whereas if it's just casual dating or a random hook up, you might be more inclined to be critical or pass them over if the attraction level is mediocre.

On the topic, one of my friends back in university was always concerned about this because when she went out to pick up guys she would wear a padded push-up bra and some industrial-strength spanx body-shaper under her outfit that totally made her body look different than it did when her clothes came off. The illusion was like a firm-bodied, size 6, DD-cup when in reality she was more like a soft-bodied, size 10, B-cup. The guys didn't seem to mind that much but then again they were usually drunk when she went home with them anyway.

Topic What's the first memorable book cover you remember?

http://upload.lushstories.com/140-watershipdown.jpg

I can't find the exact book cover, but it looked something like this.

I got it as a little girl for Christmas one year because I had two bunny rabbits as pets and my grandma thought that I would love the book just because it had a rabbit on the cover. Uhmm... as it turned out, not so much.

It scared the living shit out of me and made me cry. The illustrations inside of bloody bunny rabbits attacking each other were totally traumatic to me. I remember it sitting on my book shelf and sort of terrorizing me every time I glanced at the cover. Even now it can produce a bit of anxiety when I see anything to do with this story.

But for that reason... technically it's the most 'memorable' book cover that I can remember. hiding

Topic Your man tells you he is gay
Posted 23 Oct 2011 11:17

I would be accepting in the same way that I would be accepting if the partner I was with chose to break-up with me for whatever reason. I think what it boils down to is mutual respect. When someone wants out of a relationship, they need to be able to dissolve the relationship in a respectful way.

There is a huge difference between a conflicted or bisexual guy finally being brave enough to 'come out' and live the life he really wants and telling his wife/girlfriend versus a gay guy that is purposely using a girl as a 'beard' for family and society and totally disrespecting her along the way.

I work with a women those husband's conservative background seemed to pressure him to pretend to be straight. So he married this girl and then basically just treated her like a child-incubator and roommate while he carried on with his long-term boyfriend on the sly. She had no idea until she caught them... 10 years later! I think it's unfair for a guy to fuck up someone else's life knowing that they have no real interest in being with them other than to sign the marriage certificate and procreate. Some women might be accepting of the situation (eg. maybe they are lesbian and unable to come out or women who just want to marry their best friend) but I think it should be arranged up front.

I know many gay men that have been married and genuinely tried to make it work but realized later in life that they would prefer to be with a guy. Personally I wouldn't have a problem with it as long as I felt like he was being respectful about the break-up and the situation. When it comes down to it, cheating is cheating. If he realized he was gay and we went through a prolonged period where he was withholding sex while fucking around with guys on the side, I'd be just as pissed as if it was with another girl.

Topic could you ever get in a relationship with someone who shared a parent's 1st name?
Posted 21 Oct 2011 06:25

It's not ideal but it wouldn't bother me that much. How many people really think of their parents as anything other than "mom" and "dad" anyway.

I would have a much bigger problem with someone that shared the same name as my 'evil' long-term ex-bf. That name is ruined forever as far as I'm concerned.

Topic Viagra
Posted 17 Oct 2011 19:40

You can buy it over the counter in Mexico so my ex-bf and I played with it experimentally about three times. Two times was after we'd already partied on X and the first time he took it and didn't tell me.

Yes, there is definitely a difference. The cock seems harder than normal, almost like it's made of marble. The fucking is more enthusiastic and vigorous (although this might also be because the guy knows he can fuck for days and not get tired or worry about coming too fast).

It's a lot of fun... but... in reality, there is only so much fucking you really want to experience in one session, right? Like hours later, you do get kind of sore (and bored). You (as the female) will want to rest, sleep or go do some other activity, and he will have a perma-hard-on for 8 hours. It's almost like too much of a good thing.

Of course this was with a guy that didn't need viagra in the first place. If a guy does need it, maybe the effects just even out to a more normal sexual experience. If your guy is young and experimental, I'd recommend splitting it in half for the first try so he knows what to expect at a lower dose.

I also tried a half viagra once, but there is some debate on whether this drug works on women. I felt super horny, but then I was super horny to begin with, so I can't say for sure if it made a huge difference for me. Plus I had already been rolling on X all night, so there might have been a different kind of effect.

Let's be honest now... that bowling ball was really an anal bead that had broken off the chain, wasn't it. The bowling pins were the butt-plugs. I gotta get my toy shapes right!

Topic just fantasy? or can it happen?
Posted 14 Oct 2011 05:45

I don't think orgasms work the same as Pavlov's dogs.

Although, perhaps if every time I had an orgasm, I was rewarded with $1000 cash, I could be trained to cum on command.

I think for most people though, a person would have to turned on by the entire concept of orgasm denial and command orders for it to work... especially if you're talking about the hands-free, voice-command concept of orgasm. It might be a bit easier with the hitachi magic wand and a command, but I still think you have to be into that scene in general.

Topic What have/would you do to get out of a speeding ticket?
Posted 11 Oct 2011 10:37

No, I've never cried. I don't ask for any favours, flirt or make a big production about it (I have too much pride). I just hand them the license/registration. For whatever reason though they always drop the fine to the bare minimum so I never lose points or have to pay very much. I actually thought that was just standard practice until some male friends told me it wasn't and that they always get nailed for max fines.

Topic cum without touching
Posted 11 Oct 2011 10:22

Okay guys, newbie here, so forgive me if this has been asked before. (I searched forums and didn't see it posed as a "guy" question though).


Other than a wet dream, lap dance, or masturbation...has a woman ever made you cum without her even touching you? If so, what did she do that made you get off? Ladies, feel free to weigh in too if a man (or woman!) has made it happen to you.

I can orgasm without anyone touching me (it's always been very easy for me to do)... basically it's all kegal-related for me.

I did make a guy come once without touching him or him touching himself but he had a P.E. problem in general (total minute man during sex). In fact a lot of times, I was scared to touch him in case he went off before we got to do anything at all. If I recall correctly, the most obvious time was when I was doing a dirty strip-tease for him. He jizzed in his pants... literally. confused1

That was pretty cool. And yes, I did check it all out, it was totally legit. Wish I could have been a fly on the wall in those classes though. :)

Topic What's The Best Comment you've received on a Story????
Posted 10 Oct 2011 13:13

I've gotten so many really humbling and wonderful comments, letters, and feedback. It's actually hard to just pick one... so I'll pick two (for different reasons).

1. This first is one that really stands out because it's kind of like the perfect tagline for my Sex Rehab series:

"This entire series has been unmitigated filth dressed up in clever writing and fine plotting." (a comment on The Sex Rehab Diaries: Stacey's Confession)


2. And this second piece of feedback was just so complex and well thought out. I think it's kind of a writer's dream to have a reader be able to articulate this level of impact, and know that they totally 'got it' (ie. all the subtleties of the story).

"Dense and throbbing with erotic, psychological turmoil! There are a lot of stirring sensual images in this story: not only sights but smells and sounds. The party has a kind of cinematic immediacy, taking us along with Rachel's sensual disorientation in the cage and into the flood of sensations that envelop her throughout the party.

At another level, the psychological interest of the story is high, particularly because, on two fronts, it breaks with some of the fantasy conventions of the genre: first, that someone at the party 'cheats' and videos her, exposing her to public shaming; and second, that despite her independent spirit, she hasn't managed to avoid winding up here at her parents' direction (tho, as is hinted, this plan will backfire!).

The conflict between her rich self-awareness and immersion in sensual escapism vs her parents' conviction of what's best and her 'true self' makes itself realistically felt, without harming the erotic impact." (a comment on The Sex Rehab Diaries: Rachel's Confession ).


Both of those comments are from fabulously talented Lush authors that I greatly admire.

Topic a dildo question
Posted 10 Oct 2011 09:01

Do you enjoy using a large dildo (the 9" plus girthy ones), or is it somethimg you play with for your man's visual arousal?


Nope. I bought a 'real-skin' suction cup dildo last year and it came in either a 6-inch or 8-inch size (insertable length is 6.75inch). I went with the 6-incher. I actually bought it on the way to a girl's night out and had it in my purse, so I showed a few of my girlfriends later who were in disbelief that it was 6-inches because it seemed way bigger than anything they'd seen in real life. It made me realize (yet again) how much guys exaggerate their dick size.

For me, 9+ girthy would be way too much.

Topic for those that like anal
Posted 07 Oct 2011 15:57

Ouch!

Sometimes I go into the sex store and see scary looking gigantic buttplug shaped things called "Anal Trainers" that make me cringe. Unless one has a career in the porn business specializing in gaping asshole videos, I don't think anyone want to be playing with anything like that.

Most anal vibrators are actually smaller than the average male penis... and tapered at the end as well.

Even the Clone-A-Willy kits (where you can clone your own penis and turn it into a sex toy) come as vibrators, not just dildos. Now if only evolution would catch up to technology!
