Topic Rest In Peace: Victoria Wood

Wow, a British comic that I have not heard of. Time to go looking. Sad that it was her obit that brought her to my attention.
Topic Best female characters?
20 Apr 2016 08:17
I guess my favorite female from my own stories is April (stories: April's Secret, The Pastor's Secret, New Friends) given that I've written about her three times and have vague ideas for a fourth. I just like how she's shaped up as a woman who owns and doesn't deny or run from her past while trying to build a new present with her boyfriend Ross.
I've always wanted to do more with Dee from Snow Plowed, too, but have been a bit wishy-washy on where to take her after the events of that story and its sequel, Never Again.
Topic Utah vs Porn
19 Apr 2016 10:40
The bill is more specific, requiring that computer technicians who find child porn in the course of their work report it to law enforcement.
This I am in favour of, just as teachers and day care workers are obligated to report evidence of abuse. Protecting our children is paramount.
As for the broader issue of porn being a "public health hazard", I think it depends on how far one casts the net. Rape porn, child porn, snuff, and such definitely fit that bill. However, if more mainstream erotic material (like, say. Lushstories or run of the mill porn flicks) are included, I think the net is being cast too wide. The fact is that in most constituencies, the bad stuff is already illegal under one or more existing laws.
If they are talking about "porn addiction" (which I have no doubt exists to some degree), then providing support to those affected is a worthwhile effort, just as we can offer addiction support for alcoholics while still keeping alcohol legal (though, IIRC, I understand Utah liquor laws are fairly strict). Ditto offering support for sex workers trying to get out of the business (which should be there anyhow to help ex-prostitutes).
Topic First "porn"
15 Apr 2016 12:32
In my teens Channel 4 in the UK introduced a red triangle on films that had either sex scenes or excessive swearing, which of course had the impact of driving up viewing figures!!when I had a tv in my room they were a great source of wanking! But most sex scenes in films were suffered in awkward silence in our living room.
During my late teens (to be clear for Lush rules, we are talking 16 and older), when I was doing the babysitting mentioned upthread, the multicultural channel in Toronto used to run uncensored Italian movies late at night (the couple I was sitting for were often out until 1 or 2). A couple of them veered into softcore. I had no idea of what they were saying though I could kind of figure out the plots from what was happening onscreen, however that didn't bother me too much when tits were being shown. However, someone eventually complained and our rather paternalistic TV regulator slapped them silly until they stopped.
Topic First "porn"
15 Apr 2016 09:19
While I'd go with the Sears catalogue as being the first images I found piquing my curiosity
You, too, eh? The lingerie sections of Sears and Eaton's (now defunct Canadian department store) catalogues fired a few jerk off sessions before I got into real porn.
Topic what if you had a cunt??
13 Apr 2016 10:15
Probably start screaming at my doctor. "You fucking idiot, it was suppose to be a knee replacement!"
And Chuck wins the thread.
Topic what if you had a cunt??
13 Apr 2016 08:17
Not call it a "cunt" for starters. There are nicer sounding names (I like "pussy" myself).
Otherwise, have sex and take leaks. Same thing I do with my dick. Not sure what else I'm supposed to do with it.
Topic Womens' hair length
11 Apr 2016 13:11
I have a bit of a thing for long hair right now, but any of "Shoulder", "Long", or "Very Long" fits for me. I checked Long but could have just as easily chosen the other two (or all of them if this was a multi-response poll). I have seen short hair that I found attractive, but it doesn't grab me the way long hair does (and it's harder for me to grab, too :D).
Topic Recreational Drugs
11 Apr 2016 10:55
I'm boring. Well, on this front at least. Not a prohibitionist and I support legalizing weed (if the Liberals here ever get around to it) but not really inclined to indulge. If/when legalization happens, maybe I'd give it a whirl but probably not. Even alcohol I do in great moderation, not a teetotaler but a glass here and there is about it.
Topic Have you tried" IT" this way??????
11 Apr 2016 10:47
I don't get golden showers. I have pee'd on myself and it was anything but erotic for me. If it is your kink, go for it, but I can't say it does anything for me.
Topic First "porn"
11 Apr 2016 10:46
Hmm. Either watching the porn version of "Alice in Wonderland" (1976, I would have seen it in the early eighties) or raiding the massive Playboy stash of the couple I babysat for. Forget which came first.
Topic Pierced nipples, I've asked the women, now the men
11 Apr 2016 10:43
I cringe, as I tend to do at any piercing (it's not reflective of how I feel about the woman but of my own phobia around pain and having things stuck in my flesh). However, I don't have any specific stereotype of women who have such piercings other than "braver and more pain tolerant than I".
Topic Best Movie Based On A Graphic Novel?
11 Apr 2016 10:33
Perhaps an odd choice, but the animated adaptation of Batman : Year One is very, very good and very faithful to the original (a classic Batman graphic novel from the eighties by Frank Miller). I found it on Netflix but it is available on DVD and may be on other streaming services as well.
Topic Ex-porn star Amber Rayne found dead
05 Apr 2016 09:18
I have not really followed porn in a long time so the name means nothing to me, but it's sad to see someone die so young regardless.
Topic Writing first person from a perspective not your own
01 Apr 2016 08:26
For my latest, I went a tiny bit out on a limb and wrote from a female first-person viewpoint for the first time (I've had female viewpoint characters in third person narratives before, though). The viewpoint character is a straight, middle-aged, married lady so not a big stretch since I'm a mostly straight, middle-aged, married man, but I did worry about well how I would pull it off. So far, comments are positive (it's a comp entry so I can't see scores yet) and I haven't received any hate mail so I guess I didn't totally botch it up at least. I'd be more reluctant to stretch out into something like a trans lesbian given how little experience I have from either perspective. I have great respect for the trans and lesbian folks that I do know and I would worry a bit about disrespecting them in some way if I did it wrong. Still, I won't say never ever.

Topic Announcing our "New Experiences" Sex Story Competition, with $150 1st Prize
29 Mar 2016 12:16
I am literally unable to stop rewriting. New sentences just keeps showing up in my head.
I get you totally. My stories would go up a lot faster if I could stop tinkering with stuff that, really, is just fine and doesn't need tinkering. And one of the things I hate about going back to re-read my old stories is that I see things I "could have done better". Really, most of them are just fine, it's just my mind trying new things on and liking them.
Topic MEN.......questionre SHARING
28 Mar 2016 10:43
Yes to both, though she's not really the type. I'd want some kind of reciprocity though, TBH, fulfilling your option 2 would be reciprocity enough because I'd enjoy having another man join us as well (though perhaps in more of an MMF kind of way).
Topic Leading Lady
28 Mar 2016 10:40
I like a lady who knows what she wants and isn't afraid to let me know. There's limits to that, though, and I'd hope she'd let me take lead at times, too.
