Topic Is there another story category you'd like to have on Lush?
Posted 28 Jul 2015 01:33

How about a 'Psychological' category, where 'mind-games' are played out in terms of erotica.

Topic Body Language.
Posted 28 Jul 2015 01:26


Do you pay attention to people's body language? For example, arms crossed can mean 'I want to be left alone', slightly longer eye contact can be a sign of showing interest. There are many other body gestures but not all people tune-in to this.

Would you like to share any gestures or mannerisms that you noticed, and what they meant to you personally?

Hi Purple,

A turnaround of a week is not uncommon if we are having a particularly busy submission time. There are currently 56 stories in the queue waiting for approval and gold members are given priority as a perk of premium membership.

I can see that your story is near the top, so hopefully it won't be much longer.

All the best,


Thanks Hun,

I really appreciate all the time you guys devote to the submitted stories. Thank you clarifying that...

Topic Contact Difficulties.
Posted 27 Jul 2015 07:21


I've tried contacting Lush through the normal link but have not received a reply. I've also tried contacting one of the Moderators, but again, no response.

There may be a technical hitch on my account or something of that ilk. My reason for contacting Lush was that I submitted a story a week ago. The story hasn't been verified or rejected. Usually, the longest that I've had to wait is three days.

Could you please assist in this matter...

Thank you,


Topic Lights Off Sex - Why do some women prefer it?
Posted 21 Jul 2015 13:37

I had a friend once who would only ever make love to his wife with the lights off. One day, she turned the lights on, only to discover that he had been using a strap-on dildo on her.

"You fucking cheating bastard," she screamed.

"That's rich, calling me a fucking cheat, how do you explain the three kids we've got!" He retorted.

And the moral of the story is ... your answers please.

Topic Mr. and mrs
Posted 20 Jul 2015 10:59

There is a trend here in England these days where women are using hyphenated surnames after marriage. They put their surname first, then the Huband's with a hyphen.

Interestingly, a new movement is taking root where the husband is taking the wife's surname....

Thank you for all the replies. I probably misunderstood things when I was at school. Like I said before, I have learned a great deal from this site.

A big thank you to Lush, the Moderators, and all the members....

Topic Standard Benchmark
Posted 18 Jul 2015 00:47


In Britain, the standard benchmark for the English language would be the 'Oxford English Dictionary, Thesauras, and Grammar Guide'.

My question to folks living in Australia, USA, Canada, or any other parts of the globe is that do you use the same benchmark or does your country have its own equivalent version?

If there is an equivalent version, would you please state the source....

Thank you.

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,

Lush has helped me in many ways. I'm given a chance to write something creative. The moderators have guided me towards a higher standard of Grammar.

I'm truly grateful to Lush, the readers, and above all the moderators who gave me so much support and encouragement. I hope that Lush will continue to strive...

I would also like to add that the moderators are very kind, caring, and patient.
