Topic What actor(s) do you like so much, that you will watch their movies/shows just because they are in it?
Posted 08 Jun 2016 09:06

Michelle Pfeiffer was like this for me at one point.

Sean Connery was another. He could make even a total stinker entertaining if he was on his game (see Sword of the Valiant for a case in point).

Harrison Ford, though he hasn't actually too many total stinkers. Of course, this means Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade was am absolute must-see for me since it had both Ford and Connery.

Don't watch many movies nowadays so can't really name any current stars who are in this category, though I do like Tom Hiddleston based on seeing him as Loki in the Marvel movies and plan to chase down more of his work at some point.

Topic The Night Manager Mini Series on AMC
Posted 08 Jun 2016 09:00

Read the novel it's based on years ago (when it orignally came out). Haven't got AMC or any streaming services that carry it so I'm still looking for a way to watch short of illegal download (which I try to avoid doing since my ISP has been targeted by studios in the past). Hiddleston and the director Suzanne Biers have both been mooted for involvement in the Bond series on the strength of The Night Manager (Hiddleston as 007, Biers to replace Sam Mendes in the director's chair) though Hiddleston seems to be downplaying the possibility of him playing Bond now. I'd rather see him keep playing Loki myself.

At the rate I'm going, I probably will only have sex one more time before I die. :D But I would say my wife if we can get things going in bed again.

In the middle of a busy, crazy week, will you make time for sex or put it off until things die down?

Topic If she asked.. would you?
Posted 06 Jun 2016 13:56

For me.. hair pulling, spanking, restraining, hard deep fucking, throat gripping, throat fucking, light smacking, biting...

As a rather passive, not especially aggressive person, this would be hard for me. I even find it hard to write, which is why the sex in my stories rarely gets into this (there's some). It does not come naturally to me so I'd be forcing myself. If she really, really needed that kind of sex, I suspect we'd be parting ways though I hope we could find another way to deal with it.

Topic Story Feedback
Posted 04 Jun 2016 06:46

I'm cool with honest opinions and constructive criticism and don't mind getting some now and then (and have received some, more through PM than in comments, though). In the end, though, I'm happy to get comments and scores of any kind because it means someone has enough interest in my stories to take the time to score/comment.

Topic Would you ever marry a girl with a notorious sexual history?
Posted 01 Jun 2016 08:09

It's not your past that would be the question. It would be our future. I would be happy to marry a woman with a past (as they say) if the emotional love was there between us (I'm not going to marry someone for sex, but for an emotional connection that transcends that) but I would need a question answered: Are you going to continue your promiscuous ways, requiring us to negotiate an open marriage of some kind, or are you "hanging up your spurs" and trying to be monogamous?

I would be open to either possibility, but if you choose monogamy and then continue to see lovers outside the marriage, there is going to be a problem, so the answer to that question is going to be very important to the marriage.

Topic how would you react?
Posted 31 May 2016 07:37

So how would you react if in the same situation?

Block the concerned friends for one thing. They aren't friends if they are doing that. If any of the "bullying" really worried or scared me, off to the mods.

Topic Adult Work
Posted 30 May 2016 19:09

I've considered it recently not for the money but for the sex, but the question then becomes who wants a 50 year old woman?

Actually, a couple of the most successful escorts in my city were still working at their 50th b-day. I saw one of them a couple times, never met the other. Admittedly, both had been doing it for a long time at that point rather than just starting out. Still, never say never...

Topic Gender neutral toilets
Posted 30 May 2016 08:10

Frankly, when I start my restaurant or open my store (I'm not really very enterpreneurial but you never know), I'm just not going to label the damn bathrooms. Just set up a washroom or two and label them "washroom". Use the one you feel like using.

Then again, we are highly unlikely to see "bathroom laws" up here, though the bathroom thing has been used as an excuse in the past by some idiots in our Senate to hold up a bill adding transgender to the list of prohibited grounds for discrimination in the Canadian Human Rights Act. The bill has been reintroduced and is now backed by the government (it was a private member's bill in past incarnations) so hopefully it will go through this time.

Topic Number of story views
Posted 30 May 2016 08:01

depends on a lot of things. the catagory. if it's a new writer or a well established one. things like that. a good way to get more views is to become visible. that means posting in the forums, using the chat rooms, making friends and connections, and, of course, writing a kick ass story in the first place. :)

What she said.

I have stories from early in my Lush days (I've been here since 2013) that are still below 10,000 and I have more recent ones at famous level (>30,000) so there is clearly a lot involved in getting readers to look at your work.

Promotion through various means (your blog, your forum sig, the Self-Promotion forum, Twitter or other social media if you are okay with people on them knowing you're here) helps. I find that if I put in some effort to promo a story I haven't promo'd in a while, I do get a boost on it, though factors like category still come into play even then.

Topic Your First Erotic Story
Posted 28 May 2016 13:36

Authors, what was your first erotic story or poem you had published here?

The one entitled " One Beautiful Morning ". It is no longer first in my list because it was withdrawn and substantially re-written.

Reading it back now, is there anything you would change if you were to re-submit it?

Given that it has already been re-submitted, I guess, yes. I doubt that I would revisit it a second time, though. The first time was because of some personal discomfort with how I did something in the first version and also because it was my first Lush story and wasn't as well done as it would have been had it been done later in my Lush writing.

How do you feel your writing has developed since then (if at all)?

My stories have gotten longer (on average) and a bit plottier, I think. I'm a bit more thorough with proofing and editing now, too, I would say. Experience and a stint as a moderator helped encourage that.

It shows, too, in that the much later " Summer Storm " is a better riff on the same theme as "One Beautiful Morning" (older man deflowers young woman). It even got an RR.

Topic Muirfield Golf Club - Blatant Sexism
Posted 25 May 2016 13:48

So, what's with all that 'private' that's often used? Why should discrimination should be allowed just because it's in a inner circle, just because it's 'private' ? I do understand all that 'i do what I want in my lawn' but, in the end, what those clubs do isn't to treat genders differently just because they can? Why can they do that? On what basis!? This is what I can't understand. My private jnterest and freedom shoudn't infrige others, right? If it's a private property, then, I can stop whoever I want to walk on my lawn. Why? Because it's my property and I have almost absolute rights for/on it. But, as humans, do we have equal rights or we don't? Do we understand that concept?


The problem is that we have accorded organizations (as corporations) the right to hold and control property, too. And therefore, they also get to control what happens on the property that they own just as we individuals do. Ideally, some kind of minimum human rights code would apply to all incorporated organizations but I'm not sure that's been done anywhere that I know of (though it kind of happens here due to human rights provisions in our employment laws but those affect hiring, not membership). Depending on the organization, other rights may come into play that affect how they can be made to "conform" as well. Same sex marriage is allowed in Canada but churches that choose not to perform weddings for LGBT couples are protected from prosecution because of freedom of religion. In some areas, civil marriage officiants are the only option for same sex couples because no churches will do them.

There's a big overlap between "keep change from happening" and ensuring that something will "stick" of course ;)

Of course. The trick is to find the balance between stability and change. You don't want to be charging off willy-nilly just because of a whim that a bunch of people happen to support but you don't want to fossilize either.

Topic Who is your favourite James Bond?
Posted 25 May 2016 11:07

Okay, I guess I'm the iconoclast here. I chose Timothy Dalton. He played the character just the way I was looking for and brought some edge back after the rather soft, overly comic Moore era.

I used to put Connery on top and probably still would on some days. He's very much his own Bond, not Fleming's, but at least in the early movies, was believable in the role. He should have stopped after You Only Live Twice though. Diamonds was horrible, even him.

Lazenby had a great movie but was a so-so Bond.

Brosnan wasn't the Bond I thought he'd be but maybe I need to give him another whirl.

Moore ... I tried rewatching The Spy Who Loved Me (nominally my favorite Moore) a while back and gave up. He's even worse than I remembered.

My wild card is that I haven't watched the Craig movies yet and from what I've read, he could end up on top of my list if I ever get around to watching them.

Topic tips for jacking off
Posted 25 May 2016 11:01

Doing it outside is good. I, myself, have no desire to get in trouble with the law but masturbating outside, in broad daylight , in a location where you won't get in trouble, is hot. Outside at night, totally nude, is exciting. Don't know if you're up for it but masturbating - out in the 'open' - occurs regularly in gay bathhouses, saunas.

I wish I had the nerve to do this (or anything sexual in a semi-public place). The idea turns me on but I'm a bit of a chicken. Closest I've come is a washroom stall at work (actually, I've edged at my desk the odd time before heading to the bathroom to finish) but even that is fairly private. I like doing it out in the open in my home, on the kitchen floor and such but, again, that's fairly private.

Can't say I've done anything too kinky. Love coating my hand with lube and fucking my fist. That gives me some of the best orgasms. I've done some assplay, too, and that feels nice if you can "hit the spot".

Fantasy: Being watched. Not by someone in the room but from a distance. Knowing they can see me but with no option for going beyond watching each other.

What's happening? Well, my local hockey team (the London Knights) are one game away from the Memorial Cup, Canada's national junior championship. Haven't lost a game since March 26. They are playing so well it's actually getting boring. They even got profiled in the sports section of the New York Times because of the number of good NHL players they've produced (Corey Perry is probably the best known right now, but Patrick Kane played a season with them, Max Domi, Olli Maata, and Nazem Kadri all played junior in London).

I have not seen it. Not even sure who has the rights in Canada. It was discussed a bit on a board I'm on for local escorts and their clients (yes, I've had a GFE) but that was when it was first in production and no one has posted on the thread since it came out.

It matters not what you believe. That is different than reality. You can believe frogs fly but that ain't gonna make it so.

You did note the smiley, right? I do not believe in reincarnation (though it makes more sense to me in some ways than heaven/hell) and was just making a joke riffing on your post.

Even if you believe in life after death, this is a unerversal truth. We don't have yesterday, or tomorrow. All any of us have is the here and now. Celebrate life. It's your only shot.

Well, unless you believe in certain forms of reincarnation. Then you get to keep coming back until you get it right. evil4

I feel that when a two-thirds majority is set as the required number for anything, is used to keep change from happening, that is just personal opinion.

It may not have been set specifically for this vote. Corporate by-laws for organizations like this often specify a 2/3 majority for votes to change the by-laws or other key corporate documents to avoid the controversy that can come with a "50+1" (ie. 51%) vote (meeting was stacked with supporters of the change, only had a bare quorum so not really representative, etc.). I've seen decisions made on a 50+1 vote revisited and changed back on another 50+1 vote. You don't want that kind of instability around corporate by-laws and things like the name of the organization. That's less likely with a 2/3 since it is unlikely that there will be 17% shift vs. a 2% shift. So it isn't so much to keep change from happening as ensuring the change really has the membership's support and will "stick".
