Topic Halloween Costumes!
17 Oct 2014 08:10
I thought about possibly going as the Joker, only more feminine. I can't think of anything else.
Don't know how familiar you are with current Batman mythology but if you don't already know her, Google up Harley Quinn (Harlequin, get it?). She first appeared as the Joker's sidekick (his counterpart to Robin if you like) but has become a popular character in her own right over time and is something of a female Joker (less of a psychopath, though).
I haven't dressed up for Hallowe'en in a long time. If I was going to this year, I'd likely roll back to my old favorite: the vampire. Maybe wear my dark suit with pale makeup and fangs and be a vampire mobster or something like that.
Topic Story Scores
17 Oct 2014 07:59
The things is, most people here will rarely tend to vote below a 4. All my stories are somewhere in the 4-5 range average score.
If this was a "marking scheme" the averages should probably be centered around a 4 or even a 3 depending on how you think things should work. The problem with that is that anything that is bad enough to merit a 1 or 2 probably should not be getting past the mod team in the first place (assuming that means equivalent to a D or E in school).
But it isn't marking scheme. It's a really a glorified "Like" system. So I figure if I'm getting 4s and 5s, that means people like it. The number of votes (ie. the number of people who actually bothered to vote on a story rather than how they voted) and comments are really more meaningful to me
Topic Who are your favorite sexy celebrity MILFs?

Don't have a pic to post right now, but I have adored Michelle Pfeiffer ever since I first saw her in Dangerous Liaisons and she's still a hottie at 56, even if she's not as busy or visible these days.
Topic What Are The Most Memorable Movie Scenes That Have Stayed With You Always?
15 Oct 2014 13:25
The duel between Count Rugen (Christopher Guest) and Inigo Montoya (Manny Patinkin) in The Princess Bride (which has a slew of great scenes, really).
The opening shot of Vader's destroyer chasing Leia's ship in Star Wars, Episode IV : A New Hope. I was 12 when it first came out (as just "Star Wars") and that opening scene just drew me right into the story.
As suggested by others, any number of scenes from Casablanca.
The first appearance by the "Mother Ship" at the climax of Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
Topic What is the best concert/live band you've seen and why?
15 Oct 2014 12:49
Perhaps not quite what you have in mind, but it was 1988(ish) and it was the Toronto Symphony Orchestra during one of their best periods doing Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. No piece of music, past or present, can beat the Ninth for me and this was a wonderful pefformance of it.
Topic What super power would you have?
15 Oct 2014 12:38
Perfect control over my orgasms so they happen when I, and my partner, want them to (I suffer from PE).
Shape shift into my lover's dream fantasy lover, male or female.
Topic Comments and votes
14 Oct 2014 13:47
As a reader, I will normally do both. As a writer, I prefer a good comment to a simple score. More personal and maybe tells me something about what is good (or bad) about that particular story.

Cleopatra. I'm rather sick of seeing Slavegirl Leia (there's one is every cosplay pic I come across).
Topic do guys like when girls
14 Oct 2014 09:08
I could go for that. Rubbing against each other can be very sexy.
Topic Is this dress too slutty to be going out with friends?
09 Oct 2014 08:56
For some clubs or maybe a sexy party (I could see wearing it for a swingers party or something), I could see it working.
For general going out around the town ... not so much.
I attend church in something similar, only it's cream. :)
I think I just had a conversion experience. Hallelujah!
Topic Sex in non-erotica
07 Oct 2014 12:56
I remember reading Peter Benchly's 'Jaws' when I was, let's say 'in my teens'! Now, I read it because I like sharks. In that book there is an INCREDIBLY hot sex scene between The Oceanographer and Chief Brody's wife Ellen. (Which sadly didn't make it into the movie...) It remains one of the most erotic scenes I've ever read, made all the more so because by the time they got into bed together I KNEW them both!
I don't remember that scene (I hated the novel Jaws, found it rather dull and sudsy, but YMMV). For me it was a hot love scene in Ken Follett's thriller Triple that did much the same thing. A pretty good spy thriller but let's just say that one scene got re-read a lot more than the rest of the book and was often read while holding the book one-handed .
I do write conventional fiction (none of it published but if I can ever drag myself away from erotica, maybe I'll get some of it written for the blue site) and my tendency is to make the sex as detailed as it needs to be. If it's just a throwaway scene, I'm not going to write it out in detail just as I don't write a detailed account of the guy's drive to the woman's house unless it's germane to the plot. OTOH, if the love scene matters, if something that happens between the lovers in that act matters to the story, then I'll write it out in as much detail as I can without pushing it over the line.
I can actually think of an example now: in an s-f story I wrote, two women are ex-lovers. When one convinces the other to help her with what amounts to piracy, they end up in the sack and what happens reflects on one woman's feelings about the whole adventure so I wrote that one in a fair bit of detail.
Topic What's your WIP (work in progress) about?
03 Oct 2014 14:06
Part 3 of my Satisfaction trilogy, which brings the couples from the first two Satisfaction stories (see sig) together for a lusty weekend at the beach. Alas, I kept getting distracted by other priorities and ideas, then was off for a couple weeks vac. Hopefully will get it done soon.
This got sidelined. My new story (actually a complete rewrite of my first ever Lush story) is in my signature.
I'm now working on a story idea I had a couple months back with a view to using it as my entry in the current comp.
IOW, the third Satisfaction story, though about half completed, is on indefinite hold right now.
Topic Stay at home person with the kids

We've been somewhat fortunate in that while we both have fulltime jobs, my wife is a university prof and is able to home office a lot. She also has one term a year where she doesn't teach classes, just does research, so rarely goes in to the campus. We still availed ourselves of day care when the boy was little (he's in high school now) but having a parent not tied down to a workplace 9-5 was helpful during illnesses and such like. That said, with both of us working, housework has to get done on evenings and weekends when we aren't committed for work and she often has to work in the evenings to catch up if she had to deal with family stuff during the day.

Topic Smooch, Screw or Slap?
01 Oct 2014 12:21
Smooch and screw. And maybe a little slap on the bum if she's into that kind of thing.
Topic Do you browse porn on the internet? If yes, how often?
01 Oct 2014 11:47
I haven't in a while, but sometimes when I have a block of time to myself, I will. I like my porn a bit "soft". No (or minimal) spitting, slapping, etc., just a couple looking like they are really into each other enjoying the sex. No obvious mugging or playing to the camera.
It's not easy to find but it's out there. I do find lesbian to be very good for it, hetero I can usually find something that hits the spot, gay is harder for some reason.
Topic AC/DC - sad news about Malcolm Young
01 Oct 2014 09:42
Oh Wow, what happened? I haven't heard anything, except this post just now!
From Rolling Stone: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/malcolm-youngs-family-confirms-ac-dc-guitarists-dementia-20140930
When Brian first talked publicly about Malcolm being "ill", I was worried.
At least there's another generation of the Young family to take over the family business and I'm looking forward to hearing his work on the new album.
I have a weird relationship with AC/DC. I don't think that there is another band as hard as them on my "favorites" list. I tend more to prog rock and singer-songwriters (Leonard Cohen, Sarah McLachlan, etc.) where popular music is concerned. But AC/DC have somehow broken that mold and songs like "You Shook Me All Night Long" and "Thunderstruck" are part of my personal "soundtrack".

They are both cheating, it's just a matter of degree.
Forgiveness is up to those involved. I would readily forgive the one nights stands and brief encounters; a longterm emotional affair would be harder but I hope I could see my way to it. I do believe strongly in forgiveness and in recognizing that the forgiveness we offer is forgiveness we may need back someday. We all have our failures, after all.
Forgiveness, incidentally, is not confined to the relationships that survive an affair. Even if there is a split, forgiveness will eventually be needed for closure.
Topic What would you do if you came home and found your girlfriend masturbating?
30 Sep 2014 10:12
Hopefully, turn it into a mutual masturbation session. I've always wanted to do that (I get off while watching her get off watching me...).
More likely, she gets embarrassed (since she officially disapproves of masturbation and, for all I know, does not do it) and we finally have a long overdue talk about our sex life or lack thereof.
