Topic Do I stay on Lush?
25 Aug 2012 09:43
It's up to you of course but Lush has far more to offer than just chat. You could try your hand at writing if you have not already done so. The forums offer many interesting topics to discuss and there are many who chat for nothing more than decent conversation. I've been here for 3 years and haven't engaged in any type of cyber since the first year here. I just love being around so many interesting and open minded people
I agree with Milik. I, too, have been here for three years (will be in September) and I joined because I wanted a place to showcase my writings. But I have met some wonderful friends here and have conversations with them very often. I have never engaged in any of the cyber here at all.
Lush is a great place to get release, not just sexual, as I am sure many do, but one can get release from sharing knowledge and just having fun.
And even though I come to the forums to see what's being said, doesn't mean I have to leave a response to every thread. It's just a way to see what is going on and connect with other Lush members.
Topic Why ask Lush Friends to comment on your pictures?
25 Aug 2012 09:37
I could not agree more. I have never sent a message saying to comment on my photos either because, as you say, if one really wants to comment on them, one will.
I put photos up because I felt like it. If I never get a comment, so be it.
Topic Dick size
25 Aug 2012 09:31
I am not ashamed to say that I am only 5 inches fully erect and I have had 3 partners and never did one complain about my size. It was always good because I have learned to incorporate other things to compensate for my lack of size.
So to say the least, it has never been a concern for me.
Topic Erotic TV shows
18 Aug 2012 16:22
Cinemax is one that is very open with erotic shows late at night such as, "Lingerie," "Life on Top," "Femme Fatales" among others.
I'll be honest, I only glance at them when I get a free preview of the Cinemax channels. Sometimes they are good, and then sometimes, the soft-core they show is so cheesy, you wonder if it really could happen in real life.
As erotic as those shows are, some of the regular television shows we have can be more erotic and sensual and more true to life. It's just a matter of preference.
Topic going about things...
18 Aug 2012 16:17
Even though you feel like you need to let her know how you feel, this is a bad idea that will only get worse. It possibly will border on sexual harassment as one already said, plus you don't want to blow a good job that you may have and that will most definitely do it.
Topic Most annoying txt speak
18 Aug 2012 15:59
All of it drives me crazy, even in text messages. When I compose a text message to my friends, mine are always perfect and spelled out correctly.
I guess with my English degree, I take it to heart.
Topic Recognition for work performed??
13 Aug 2012 16:22
I have been asked several times from Lush readers if I would mind proofing and correcting their stories before they submit them because they have told me that they have read my stories and see how well developed they are and they can tell that I take my time to get my stories correct grammatically and content-wise before I send it for authorization.
That makes me feel good to have other readers tell me that, so I gladly tell them that I will be glad to do so because it is something I like to do and I like to help a fellow Lush member.
I can't tell you how many stories I have actually proofed for a Lush member and I never have received a thank you as a footnote in a story. They do send me a PM thanking me and sometimes it is enough for me.
I can only imagine what the volunteers and moderators go through on a daily basis here having to read so many stories from authors. I know that it is a task in itself. I would like to hope that my proofing a story from a fellow Lush member would make the process easier when submitted.
My hand goes out to you volunteers and moderators for the jobs that you all do. If it were not for you, I am sure that Lush would not be as much as wonderful place as it is now.
A hand up for jobs well done!
Topic Completely shaven or landing strip?
06 Aug 2012 10:33
I am partial to smooth, but it's really up to her how she wants to keep her personal quarters. It's her body and she has the right to do what she wants to, just as long as it makes her feel good.
06 Aug 2012 10:16
I personally don't look at popularity when on here. I come here because I enjoy being a member of Lush and enjoy interacting with other Lush authors and members.
I write a story just for the pure joy of being able to share some of my writing ability with the Lush population. If a reader likes it and comments and votes, that's great.
I do like getting the comments on my stories. It does let me know that the readers enjoy what I have written.
But I never look at it as a popularity contest here. As long as I enjoy myself being a member and having readers enjoy what I write, then that is enough for me.
Topic If your pet could understand English for 5 minutes, what would you say to him/her?
04 Aug 2012 12:35
My dog just turned 15 years old and since the day I got her as a puppy, she has always understood words and commands.
However, seeing that she is now in the geriatric stage of her life, I would look at her and say, "Allie, it's been a long hard ride, but we have done it together."
I'd say that because since the day she was 10 months old, she was diagnosed with hip dysplasia, and I gave her the surgery to correct it or help it, but now she has developed arthritis in her hips and I have to help her up to get around.
She was also diagnosed with Canine Hemangiosarcoma, the hypodermal type, which is benign, but keeps coming back as a mass under the skin near her stomach and I have to have it removed when it reaches a certain size. She's already had three removed from recurrence.
So, seeing that we've both been through a great deal together, I'd want her to know for sure.
Topic Giving/Receiving first handjob
04 Aug 2012 12:16
That was me the first time I ever gave a hand job and watched a guy come. I was amazed at the amount and the force of his orgasm. He hit the wall behind him on the first shot, his own face, covered his chest. I just kept saying OMG OMG OMG....I was next to him in the car and was reaching over, but my hand and wrist were covered too. We were both 18 so he was a sperm machine.
So, there is/was a wall in the car that he hit while you were giving him a hand job while he was driving?
Topic What number do you think various words represent?
04 Aug 2012 12:07
When writing, I tend to steer away from using numbers totally. Numbers give an exact meaning to something that a writer may not want to convey. For that reason, I use the same concept that you propose adele.
Those that you have named are ones that come to mind when I write and want to convey a meaning "numerical phrases," if you will.
There is also the following words: twice, thrice, quadruple, many, trillion, zillion, and some (which in numbers could also be "sum," as we all know).
Then there are phrases like the following: "a lot of," "a great deal," and "it was not in the cards."
But to tell you the truth, if I ever use those numerical meaning words or phrases in my writing, I leave it up to the reader to make up what they believe I was trying to convey. The ready may be right or wrong, but I will never know because I am just the author letting the reader decide for themselves.
Topic What was your first vehicle you owned?
03 Aug 2012 16:13
Mine was a 1979 Plymouth Volare Station Wagon. I purchased it in 1988 for $400. It had a slant six, 225 cubic inch engine that never wore out. When I bought it, it had over 100,000 miles on it, and I put an extra 100,000 on it between 1988 and 2000 when I purchased a brand new 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500.
Don't have any pictures of it, but it looked very similar to this one, except mine was candy apple red.

Each person has a right to choose what they are and who they become. Each person also has a right as to where they want or do not want to eat. That's what makes freedom wonderful. It is unfortunate that some do not see it that way.
Personally, it does not matter what a person is in life to me. We are all our own person. We will do what we want to do. We can't live our lives based on somebody elses.
If one chooses to eat at Chic-Fil-A, that is their right. If not, so be it.
That is why we have choices in this world.
We choose what we want to be, our certain beliefs, and we choose where we want to eat.
This is not going to have any bearing on me going or not going to Chic-Fil-A.
Everybody has a right to his/her own choices. If the wrong one is made, oh well. That was the choice made and we have to live with it.

Topic What do you look for in a story?
28 Jul 2012 12:06
The first thing I look for in a story is the writing. I do not want it to be very simple, but I do not want it to be very complex either. I want the writing to be well-written and very enjoyable enough to hold my attention.
If it is boring in the very first few sentences with no structure, then I will just move on.
Great descriptions also are a plus. Being very descriptive can be just as effective as being well-written.
As long as it is well-written with great descriptions, the romance, love, sexy parts and erotica will all fall into place.
28 Jul 2012 10:25
Seeing that I hold an English degree, grammar and content weigh heavily on me, not only as a reader, but as a writer also.
I have seen so many stories here get approved with so many grammatical errors, I often wonder how they even get past the approval process myself.
That's why when I write a story, before I even send it off for approval to the moderators, I always make sure I proofread my story at least three or four times.
I always do the editing myself. Very seldom do I have someone else read a story. That's because of personal reasons.
I take the time to make sure my stories make sense in both grammar and content before I ever send them off for approval. I want my readers to be pleased by my stories and respect me as a writer.
And I have to say, I have received that respect so far as a member here and I do hope that I continue to receive that in the future.
Topic A question of pussy
26 Jul 2012 06:47
In my writing, I have often tried to think of several different words or names for that desirable part of a woman. I have used many of the following in place of "pussy:"
Sexual Place of Entry
Line of Division
Line between Her Legs
And those are just a few of what I may use.
I am not trying to brag here by no means, but on the following story, I received this comment, "You are definitely a vagina theasaurus. . ." Read it if you want at:

Topic Can I get an interview with you?
22 Jul 2012 12:07
Introduce the title of your story: Love After the Business Trip
Genre/Category: Love Stories
Provide the link: http://www.lushstories.com/stories/love-stories/love-after-the-business-trip.aspx
1. What first inspired you to write this particular story?
I was inspired to write this story because my aunt and uncle are/were a couple where business used to take my uncle away many times. My aunt would be home for days or even more than a week without him home. This inspiration led me to change the story around a bit to make the man be the one at home instead. I felt it meant more to make that change because most of the time, when one thinks of this type of business trip, it's the man gone and not the woman.
2. How did you come up with these characters?
The characters were based upon my aunt and uncle, of course. I just made the characters younger to appeal to more readers. I also based them on how I saw my aunt and uncle interact with each other.
3. How does it differ from some of your other stories?
This story differs from my other stories because my other stories are mainly "incest" or "straight sex" with nothing but lust driving the plot and characters. This story, "Love After the Business Trip," was meant to be more deep and with more love/emotions as the plot.
4. What was the most challenging thing about writing this piece?
Trying to think up erotic, but meaningful love imagery. I wanted the imagery to be as erotic and sensual as could be, but still emote visions of a meaningful love relationship between the characters.
5. Anything else you want to tell us about it?
Even though it is based loosely on my aunt and uncle's relationship, I believe it is one of my best written works. I relate to it because I based it on two people I know and I tried to kind of capture how I think my aunt and uncle felt when he would come home from business.
Also, if you are all inclined to read it, my sincere thank you for doing so and I do hope that you like it and can feel what I tried to convey in my story.

You may want to read this forum question as well:
But to answer, guys seem to like girls that squirt because it happens. It's as simple as that. I am not going to say it's rare that a woman can, but maybe it's rare when the guy is with a woman THAT can. That is when it is hot.
Either way, a woman is a woman. If she squirts, so be it. If not, then oh well also. A woman that can squirt is not more of a woman than one that can't.
They are both equal. Just one gets wetter than the other.
Topic circle jerk
22 Jul 2012 11:34
I admit, I participated in two, but neither were planned. They just happened.
I played baseball in high school and after a game, we would shower. Well, two of those times turned into one. Both started innocently with maybe one stroking a little then another started and before we knew it, we were all doing it. It was more of an experiment I guess you could say.
The second time was just like the first, but I guess it was kind of called for and we knew it was going to happen.
I am just glad I was not the first or last guy to blow a load. That would have been very embarrassing to me.
Never have done it again and never will.
Topic Organising P.C work
20 Jul 2012 11:49
I agree with both, DirtyMartini, and Gurlyboy. Since I also write fiction, I have folders in "My Documents" on my P.C. set aside for those. For my erotica, I simply save the story in "My Documents." It helps me keep them straight that way.

Topic new person needs help
13 Jul 2012 07:03
I agree with Nicola on this about not writing the story directly to the site, although, I will admit, I sometimes go ahead and start a story and paste it and save it as a draft here. I've never had a problem with Lush not saving it properly! (Thanks, Nicola, for that feature!) I can always go back in and edit the story before I click the actual submit button.
I often use Microsoft Works to do my writing though. It does make it easier to use a word processor application and then copy and paste it into the "Submit a Story" feature here.
Topic How short or tall is too much difference for a lover?
08 Jul 2012 16:13
Well, the three that I have been with were all shorter than me and I actually prefer that. But it would not be hard to find a woman taller than me either, seeing that I am only 5'9"
If it ever happened, I wouldn't look down on it. But I do agree, shorter women are much curvier.
