I AM thinking the best way to figure this out is a threesome with me, KK, and trinket after which I decide which one is sexiest (though likely it will end in a tie).

Home Office Chair (usually involving the computer in some way)
Topic Connecticut teen legally forced to undergo chemotherapy
12 Jan 2015 13:10
We just had a case up here where a First Nations girl and her family wanted traditional treatment rather than chemo. The court sided with the family, choosing to treat it as a First Nations rights issue rather than a medical choice one. Not sure what would have happened had she been, say, an English or French Canadian.

1. Hi, I may not be Fred Flintstone, but I’d certainly like to make your bed rock.
Strangely enough, I first saw this one (or a slight variation on it, at least) on another site as the tagline for an escort's ad.
Topic How did you find Lush?

Googling for erotic story sites (because I was unhappy with the one I was reading at the time which shall remain nameless) and this one came up. I liked it (both the stories and the forums) and here I am, not just a member but an author.
Topic Sexless Marriage
11 Jan 2015 09:35
We have a number of issues, I think, that have kept the bedroom quiet for about a year (and not very noisy for a few years).
Different body clocks (she's an evening person who can sleep until 9 or 10 in the morning sometimes and I'm a morning person who is usually dozing off by 10 or 10:30 at night).
Different priorities (she enjoys sex but it isn't a big deal with her and she often has higher priorities)
Different approaches to sex (I want to focus on sex and pleasure, she tends to wander off and start reminiscing or talking about family during foreplay)
Different erotic interests (she seems happy with foreplay and intercourse occasionally spiced up by having it on the floor or something while I'd like to get a bit more adventurous; I love oral but she's not really into it; and so on)
So our marriage is at least partly sexless because I find it hard to work up much interest for sex with her anymore (for reasons above) and also because I'm rather submissive and retiring around her rather forceful personality and it's a struggle for me to try to nudge things in a new direction that might get my interest back. On top of that, health issues (on both our sides) keep rearing their ugly heads plus some family issues around our teenager.
Sometimes, marriage has so much going on that I wonder how others have the time and will to enjoy an active sex life, really.

Nope, but based on (a) being a fan of Benedict Cumberbatch, and (b) the raves posted by friends on another board I'm on, it's on my short list.
Topic Erotic games?
10 Jan 2015 08:18
I've found "Dusty's Castle" (Google it, a number of flash game sites host it) quite fascinating. The back story is that an angel (Araphel) and demon (Azeral) in conflict are imprisoned in a mansion and are trying to get a soul named Dusty to release them.
You play Dusty, moving through the house finding stuff that unlocks various rather naughty (and often nasty) sexual encounters set as traps by Azeral to draw you to his side. Each is themed on one of the seven deadly sins. There are also ways to disarm/destroy all of them, with Araphel pushing you towards using these.
In the end, it comes down to how many of them you submit to. Submission means going all the way through the encounter so that Dusty cums. The more times you submit, the more you move towards Azeral. If you complete all encounters to orgasm, you become a demon yourself. If you pull out of all of them (and you can literally wait until the last minute, as long you don't go to the final panel where Dusty cums) and destroy all the erotic traps, then you become an angel. There are varying degrees in between. The game tracks your actions using statues of the two spirits. If you submit (given in to Azeral's trap), the corresponding angel statue breaks, if you destroy a trap then then corresponding demon statue breaks.
It's a bit dualistic theologically/philosophically and does tend towards a conservative "pleasure is bad" mentality but you can ignore that and just assume it's okay to be a hedonistic demon in this universe. Taking this point of view does change the outlook, though. If you view angelic as the desirable outcome, Dusty is a virtuous innocent to be protected. If you view demonic as okay or even desirable, then she is more of a repressed soul waiting to be released.
The sex scenarios are mostly quite imaginative BUT not all are Lush-friendly (you could get rejected and warned if you submitted a couple of them here) so if you find stuff that's too extreme for Lush to be too extreme for you, be warned. Unlike some of the simple flash erotic games, there's some imagination and variety BUT you also have less control than some in that you only decide whether to advance the scene to the next stage (say from oral to penetration to deep penetration to cumming) with some having more stages than others. Some of them (most, actually) give "interior views" of penetration that may or may not enhance the experience (not really for me).
The graphics are cartoony but look fairly good. I wish Dusty were more human. As it is, she seems to be a bit of supernatural being herself, dressed rather strangely and floating rather than walking from room to room (the latter may be a concession to keeping the code simple). You can change her colours in a customize mode but it's not essential to enjoying the game. Not everything is totally obvious on the first time through but you learn (and there are walk throughs on Youtube). Because your status at the end can vary depending on how many of the encounters you submit to, it is kind of fun to play around with to see what happens.
In the end, it's fun as a time waster to explore the possible outcomes. On Lush's 5 point scale, I'd give it a 4.
Topic What is freedom of speech?
09 Jan 2015 14:11
Our constitution contains something called the "peace, order, and good government" clause which gives government some leeway for abridging Charter rights (ie. rights guaranteed in our Charter of Right and Freedoms which forms part of our constitution) if it does in the interest of protecting "peace, order, and good government". Some governments and courts have tended to draw that line a bit too tightly, IMHO. Hate speech against identifiable target groups, for instance, is subject to various sanctions but sometimes people simply criticizing an "identifiable group" find themselves hauled up before courts and rights tribunals to defend what they said. IOW, free speech is not as absolute and sacrosanct in Canada as it is in the USA though the courts have generally done a fair (but not perfect) job of reigning in government attempts to take advantage of that.
For my part, I believe speech should be as free as possible but that includes the freedom to rebut people who abuse the right by spewing hate, lies, or other questionable speech. Free speech should be not protection from having your arguments shouted down or torn to shreds.
However, advocating violence, genocide, and such would cross the line for me. So, for an example, if you want to talk (incorrectly and inaccurately) about how spiteful and violent Islam is as a religion, I would answer with a rebuttal. You start advocating burning mosques or mass deportations of Muslims and I would answer with a call to my local authorities.
As for those who would abridge free speech to avoid offense or to avoid offending others, I'll let Stephen Fry speak for me:
Topic Is there another story category you'd like to have on Lush?
09 Jan 2015 13:32
Categories mentioned that I'd go for:
"Collaboration" doesn't strike me as a category of story for much the reason Liz suggested early in the thread. It is about how the story was written. Even I wrote a collaboration with another author (I haven't yet), I wouldn't use "Collaboration" as a category since it really says nothing about the story. A tag, sure. But not a category.
