Topic How do you choose which category to put a story in?
Posted 01 Jul 2015 08:37

My latest story could be placed in several categories, and I'm trying to determine what I should have done. I choose voyeur because that was what the story was building to, but it was of multiple individuals masturbating. Now with that in mind, I could have chosen masturbation despite it being more about watching this.

My question, when choosing a category, do you choose based on where it should go, natural to story, or where it will get more views?

Most stories will fit into many genres. You have to decide which type of reader you want to appeal to. Some may be enticed by the 'taboo' genre, some may prefer 'masturbation' genre.

You may want to look at all the genres on Lush and see which gets the highest viewing...

Topic Political Correctness
Posted 30 Jun 2015 11:21

‘Political correctness’ is a broad term used to describe the opinions and attitudes of those who are actively opposed to prejudice on such grounds as race, gender, sexual orientation and physical appearance.

In terms of language, they also oppose vocabulary that reflects such prejudices. However, many people who hold these attitudes would not describe themselves as ‘politically correct’. This is because the term has acquired negative connotations and is now often associated with extremism, aggression and intolerance.

The earliest known of the term ‘political correctness’ in print was in the United States in 1970.

The linguist Deborah Cameron, who has researched the term, found that initially it was used ironically by left-wing activists and intellectuals to mock their own attitudes.

During the 1980s, left-wing radicals (especially in the United States) became increasingly concerned with the rights of minority groups and conducted campaigns against discrimination on such grounds as race, age, gender and sexual orientation. Right-wing opponents of these campaigns grouped the together under the disparaging label ‘political correctness’, and the term came to be associated with extreme, over-zealous attitudes.

It is now often said that it is only the opponents of political correctness who actually use the term. Those who hold ‘politically correct’ attitudes prefer not to use it because of its negative connotations.

Okay, I will do it via PM. Is there any way that I can retrieve the posts, since it did take a considerable amount of time to make the alterations and I didn't keep a copy?

Many thanks,

Purple...

Topic Why would a guy?
Posted 16 Jun 2015 07:49



Your probably fucking right. I dont do anything for him but work, clean house, cook, pay the bills, and suck his cock. How could he stand to be around me.

Try to explore other aspects of the relationship...

Were things like this from the beginning, or was there a magical sparkle once upon a time?...

Topic Why would a guy?

Why would a guy sit up late at night watching porn when he could get into bed with a woman and actually have sex?

You may want to build a better love making scenario, cooking together, eating together, watching films together, reading together etc.

The physical act of sexual intercourse, without foreplay, can be a huge anti-climax. Try to build a strong relationship where you yearn for each other. Just remember:

'Absence makes the heart grow fonder, familiarity causes discontent.'
