Topic Classical Music
Posted 31 Aug 2016 09:40

I tend to go for the Russians, I guess. :)

I loves me some Russian classics as well. We played part of Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition in my school orchestra and I've been in love with that piece ever since, both the original piano and the Ravel orchestral setting (there are several orchestrations of the piece, but Ravel's is the best known). Yes, that's the same Ravel who is famous for "Bolero", another piece that I adore.

Topic Classical Music

I grew up in a fairly classical household. Dad was into operas and symphonic music as well as lighter fare like Gilbert & Sullivan and the Strauss family waltz music. So, I kind of picked it up from him and talked about that in my part of the eulogy at his funeral a couple years back. My favorites are the Beethoven symphonies and piano sonatas. In terms of opera, Wagner and Puccini are my favorites though I'm fond of Verdi, too (saw Falstaff in the spring at our local university music faculty). I played clarinet in high school and still pick it up from time to time but I've never been very good at it and if I was going to pursue it more seriously now, I might go for jazz rather than classical.

Topic Standing for the National Anthem
Posted 31 Aug 2016 09:23

Hm. Not sure any of those options quite reflect my thoughts so here goes.

I always stand for my national anthem (O Canada) and generally sing along quietly (when I remember which words to use; they just changed the lyrics for the second time in my life). That does not constitute an endorsement of my country as it is, but as it should be. I can be dismayed by our treatment of the First Nations (Canada's biggest race issue right now) or other minorities and still be proud of what our constitution and national anthem (and other symbolic items) say the country should be. So I would not do what he is doing personally.

That said, as others have suggested, freedom of speech. If this is his way of expressing his dismay with the race situation in the USA, then he should be allowed it. As Sprite suggested, athletes should be condemned for the crap they pull (rape, etc.) not for having and expressing an opinion on their country's problems.

Topic Long Hair?
Posted 31 Aug 2016 09:15

I do love looking at long hair. It looks so sensual when it moves due to her motion or even just in the wind. That said, any hairstyle that looks good and that the woman in question is comfortable with is cool with me. Emma Watson, for instance, actually looked better after she went to a pixie cut than she did with long hair.

It's funny how obsessed people can get with someone's hair, though. I follow a singer named Kina Grannis online. Wonderful indie singer-songwriter and worth Googling (her albums are on most of the major streaming services, too). She went to a much shorter hairstyle a few years ago (around the time she got married) and oh, how some fans moaned. Every new Youtube video had at least one comment along the lines of "Wonderful video, but why did you cut your hair?"

Topic Can I get an interview with you?
Posted 30 Aug 2016 15:32

Introduce the title of your story: Sweat
Genre/Category: Quickie Sex
Provide the link:

1. What first inspired you to write this particular story?

The basic structure of the guy sweating it out on a hot day and then getting laid in the grass has been in my head for years. I did a lot of yard work (planting, etc.) when we first built our house so I guess it came out of that.

2. How did you come up with these characters?

The man is pretty much me, a fiftysomething guy in a bit of a midlife crisis. His partner has kind of changed over the years. At one point, it was the "girl next door" having an affair with him but the idea of the wife coming home from her tennis match was another one I flirted with. Given that my own thoughts of having an affair have diminished and thoughts of rebooting my own relationship have been dancing in my head, I went with that version.

3. How does it differ from some of your other stories?

Hm. A bit of playful spanking is something I don't include much. Other than that, a romantic piece like this is pretty on par for me.

4. What was the most challenging thing about writing this piece?

Settling on which version to write as discussed above (neighbour vs. wife)

5. Anything else you want to tell us about it?

This is a really old idea of mine, predating my Lush membership IIRC. I'm glad to finally have it out of my head and available for folks to read and enjoy.

Topic Sometimes
Posted 30 Aug 2016 15:20

Sometimes I get home from a trip and go "glad to be home". Sometimes I get home from a trip and go "want more". I just had one of the latter.

Topic Taking Bra Off For Sex

To be honest, I have never had to unhook a bra. My wife only wears them outside the house (and not always then).

Topic Lush Featured Members
Posted 15 Aug 2016 05:52

I never even look to see who's featured. Are they featured for a reason, or just random rotation?

Nicola or gav (actually, the mods probably know, too) would probably have to confirm, but I think it's just some kind of rotation.

Topic Current Favourite TV Shows

I have a lot of people plugging the Netflix original "Stranger Things" to me so that's on my agenda when I get back from my summer vac.

You sometimes wonder if you chose the right partner.

Nope. Joined to post and read stories and have some fun on the forums. If I meet someone, that's gravy and not really what I'm after.

You have been to a hedonist resort for a vacation with or without companion.

False. No shaving for me save my neck (I have a full beard).

You have asked a partner to shave their nether regions.

Topic Anyone else enjoying the Olympics?
Posted 12 Aug 2016 05:57

Rather against my original intentions, I've been drawn into the mega-sport event going on in Rio. I had decided I was rather finished with the Olympics and wasn't going to bother this year (plus I'll be on a cruise for the last part of the games). However, a sweet 16 year-old swimmer from Toronto has kind of changed those plans. Penny Oleksiak has won the most medals ever by a Canadian swimmer at at the Olympics and, as of last night, won the first Canadian swimming gold since Barcelona 1992. This from a girl who swam her first major competition just last year (the Pan-Am Games in her hometown) and wasn't expected by our swimming people to be a major contender until Tokyo 2020 (they knew she was good, just didn't expect her to develop that quickly). In fact, all of Canada's medals so far have been won by our women and many of our remaining contenders are women as well (women's soccer, women's basketball). In fact, Oleksiak still has one race left in her calendar: anchoring our team in the 4x100 relay.

And, of course, the return of Michael Phelps to knock down a few more records has helped, too. The guy is amazing (and, if you haven't seen the pictures of him with his family, his kid is a real cutie).

Are you watching the Games? Anything stand out for you, from your country or others?

Topic Guilty or Innocent.

Half-Guilty. Definitely have the lust, but it's wisdom rather than courage that keeps me from acting (we're both married)

You masturbate regularly on the job.
