Topic Are condoms really that bad?
27 Apr 2015 11:49
Used them for most of my active sex life (which is largely over or at least on hold right now) save when wife and I were trying to get pregnant. I do enjoy bareback but find condoms aren't a big constraint. I'm a bit hypersensitive and prone to PE so a well-lubed condom can actually enhance sex for me. Yes, it can break the flow but if you plan for it, keeping the condoms ready and in reach, you can work it into your play fairly easily.
In recent years, when I've been playing around a bit with escorts, they all insist on condoms for intercourse and many do for oral as well (some do offer bareback blowjobs, aka BBBJ, though). Of course, they may be seeing half a dozen to a dozen guys a day so the protection is very necessary for them. They are masters at working it in to play, too. A couple of my favorites have mastered the technique of putting them on with their mouths.

There's cars I like in both categories (e.g. for a sports car I could easily go for either the Jag F-Type R or the Corvette Stingray) but as a passionate lover of British luxury and touring cars (like that lovely Aston-Martin Vanquish above) I had to go with imports.
Topic Movie Remakes
10 Apr 2015 09:29
I like both sprite and Katie's ideas. The latter especially, given what could be done with it using modern fx and an A-list cast.
Remaking Creature from the Black Lagoon is an idea that's been around for decades and has never come to fruition (I think Clive Barker of Hellraiser fame was attached at one point in the eighties). ScarJo is good in almost everything she's in and would be a good choice (and I'm not just saying that because she'd be wearing a swimsuit in it ).
Topic Commando Men VS Braless Women
08 Apr 2015 12:51
I'd think braless would be easier to spot, esp. given how sheer or skimply a lot of women's tops are any more. However, it depends on what is being worn over top and who is wearing it. It would be hard to tell if someone with small tits in a bulky sweater or shirt is braless, while someone well-endowed in a tight or sheer top will be immediately noticeable if untethered. For guys, it's similar. Loose fitting jeans or slacks will make it harder to tell than tight jeans or shorts.
As for the other question, no idea. It is not something I look for and I've never seen any research on the subject. I always wear briefs myself.
Topic Ever met a sex partner online?

One male encounter arranged with a guy I met online. Other than that, does booking escorts by email or through their website count?
Topic Anime & Hentai
06 Apr 2015 13:51
Tried anime a few times and, with a very few exceptions, it has never done much for me. As a consequence, I haven't bothered with hentai. If that style of animation can't get me interested in characters and stories, it is unlikely to get my rocks off. And tentacle sex seriously squicks me out to boot.

The lesbian part does not bother me. I'm bi-curious myself so same sex relationships are cool with me.
It's the affair part that's the problem. We would have to talk it out, figure why it happened and why she did not express her desires for a woman earlier (if my wife is bi, it's the best kept secret on Earth). Whether it's a deal-breaker would depend on the outcome of the talking out.
OTOH, if she was up front about her need for female intimacy, we could probably explore possibilities; perhaps an open marriage where we are both allowed some leeway with our own sex (since I'm bi-curious myself).

Luxury car or sports car?
Topic U.S. Politics - Religious Freedom Bill
02 Apr 2015 12:07
Living next to the US can be either entertaining or depressing. This one hits both counts at times but tends to the latter.
And, as others have said, discriminating based on orientation and discriminating based on skin colour are very much the same thing.
My worry, as I have expressed in discussions on this in other threads, is that if we accept the right of businesses to refuse service on religious grounds, what happens to gay people (or other groups that religious folks may dislike, such as members of other faiths) in small towns where the town's only grocery or dentist or, God forbid, doctor decides they can refuse to serve gay (or other selected) people on religious grounds. In a city, you will generally have alternatives. Outside cities, you may be in for a long drive.

Have some of the better Lush writers write it for starters. Which then addresses most of the other points above (better dialogue, believable plots, more realistic sex, etc.).

Do the extended tour of Hoover Dam if you can. It was fascinating.
Seconded. First and only time I have seen the guts of an operational hydro dam (though I have toured nuclear plants twice).
Topic Best thing to do in Vegas?
29 Mar 2015 05:59
If you're talking adult entertainment, all of the clubs and shows are very tightly controlled and almost seem tame as a result, at least from my limited exposure. For hookers? Oh, it's unavoidable! You'll get handed business cards on the street, stacks in the men's rooms, and pages and pages of "escort services" in the Vegas phone book. Never partook, but you cannot possibly miss it unless you're unconscious...and even then you might not!
You left out the vans driving up and down The Strip with small billboards on them advertising escort services. It is almost too much and too public there and I am someone who has been known to see escorts on occasion so not at all against the business (not there, though).
Topic Straight guys who like Anal toys
28 Mar 2015 18:24
I have not used a toy in my ass, only my fingers, but I would love to and would love to have a woman take me with a strap-on (then again, I could probably see my way to letting a cock in there, too).

If hiking is your thing and you don't mind a couple narrow ledges, head out to Red Rock National Conservation Area just west of Vegas and take the Calico Tanks trail. Ends with a spectacular view of the city. Was one of our best days there (but gambling isn't our thing). As Rump suggested, hit some of the better shows. Someone mentioned liking Blue Man Group in another conversation I was part of.
To be honest, if I ever go to the Southwest again, I'm going to skip Vegas (been there, done that) and focus on things like the Grand Canyon and Monument Valley.
Topic What Do You Think About Mark Wahlberg As Iron Man?
27 Mar 2015 17:38
At this point, the whole discussion of recasting Tony seems moot. Downey Jr. is definitely in the suit for Captain America : Civil War which makes it ever likelier he will also come back for Avengers : Infinity War 1 & 2 assuming Tony is still an Avenger at that point (there has been rumour about rejigging the team at some point, possibly as early as the end of Age of Ultron). There are no further solo Iron Man movies planned at this point, so Downey Jr. would probably have a couple years off to work on non-Marvel projects after he finishes shooting Civil War, which might also help keep him in the fold if they do want him in Infinity War.
Topic Question about Character Introduction
27 Mar 2015 17:28
Detailed descriptions have their place, but the details are best salted through where they are appropriate. I am not a fan of just dropping in a description. For instance, I'll describe what the character looks like as they come to meet another character or salt in an appropriate descriptive detail where it is needed.
OTOH, in my RR "In the Dark", neither character is described save in the vaguest details. It all takes place in the dark and not "seeing" anything is part of the feel of the story.
I also tend to not describe first person narrators save for details germane to the story. How often do you go around describing yourself to yourself?
Topic does anyone here have a favorite musical?
25 Mar 2015 09:44
Cats!! A brilliant piece with a superb finale by Elaine Paige!!
I love Cats. The music is some of Sir Andrew's best. I caught a touring company years ago and it is a show that really has to be seen live. Only weakness is that it is a bit light on plot, just enough to hold things together. It is the music and dancing that really carries the show, though.

Looking back, I see I picked West Side Story as my "all time favorite" earlier in the thread. That may now have been displaced for good by Les Miserables. Watched the film on the weekend and got blown away again (again because it happens every time I listen to the music after a break from it).

Is this the Fit-Bit pedometer or their smart watch we are discussing?
A couple of the ladies at work use the Fit-Bit smartwatch and swear by it. Tracks steps, heart rate, etc. and can be paired with an app on your phone to store and analyze the data.
I have the Fit-Bit pedometer and haven't even opened the box yet (won it at a conference). I mostly cycle (stationary in winter, real thing in summer) so I'm not sure a pedometer will even do me any good (the watch might according to my co-workers). I use runtastic's app on my BB to track mileage, route, etc. when riding for real and just rely on the stationary bike's electronics when I'm using it.

Well.... It's prostate not prostrate and yes it can cause an immediate ejaculation with little or no pleasure attached.
If a doctor wants a sperm sample from a man all he has to do is put on the rubber glove and just a few seconds of prostate massage and he'll have ejactulate to get the sample from. There is almost no pleasure associated with this.
If the prostate is massaged by a sex partner during a blow or hand job it can intensify the orgasm but if done too early it might be rather anticlimactic.
Anyway.... After having said all that... yes.... Most men, if they don't have hangups, love a finger up the butt during or even without the accompanying blow or hand job and it can certainly intensify the feeling.
If you have him bend over you can easily find the prostrate gland . It's about half a finger length inside the anus and toward the front of the body. Just insert your finger and if you're patient you will find it. It's not all that large. If his isn't swollen it feels about the size of an almond and he may need to give you feedback to find it. Just rubbing it can be fun and once you're familiar with where it is and what it feels like you can intensify his orgasm if you do direct stimulation of the prostate just before he cums.
Not all men's prostates are easy to find or in exactly in the same place. It's been compared to the female's g spot but I'm not so sure the comparison is good.
Anyway. I hope that helps.... ;)
Easy mistake to make, eh?
And I do admit that stimulating the prostate is easier when one is prostrate.
Topic Finding you're writing a scene that you actually already wrote for another story
23 Mar 2015 11:50
Has this happened to you? One of my current writing projects is a third story about April (see my sig for the current ones). I had something partly written and then let it lie. Today, I was reading an older story of mine for the first time in a while and discovered that a massage scene in that one was almost blow-by-blow the same as one I started to write for the new story. I am already flailing a bit with my erotic writing, finding I feel like I'm out of creative ideas when it comes to the sexy stuff. This just seems to confirm it. But maybe it's just a normal thing that happens to writers after they get enough stuff out over a period of time (ie. inadvertently doing a similar scene in a similar way in two different stories). Anyone else find they sometimes start unconsciously, completely unintentionally rewriting their old scenes in new stories?
Topic Do you lie about your height?
23 Mar 2015 11:42
I round up sometimes (not always) but don't exaggerate beyond that. I used to be 5 foot 11 3/4 inches so rounding up to 6 foot wasn't really a stretch. Generally, I'll say 5'11" now because my official height is apparently now 5'10 and something (which means I'm already shrinking from age or my mother, who gave me the higher figure when I was 17 or 18, mis-measured).
