Topic Republicans and the "R" word
Posted 26 Oct 2012 20:24

I know why they say it, but they really aren't interested in thinking it through. Fortunately, SF writer John Scalzi does that for them. Great satire that gets right to the reality of the matter.

Topic Favorite show.
Posted 26 Oct 2012 19:56

Battlestar Galactica (the remake), Dexter, The Game of Thrones and The Daily Show top my all-time list

Topic Favorite Ice Cream
Posted 21 Oct 2012 18:14

I live in Ohio, the Axis of Ice Cream. From Cincinnati we offer Graeters, best known for their Raspberry with dark chocolate chunks. To the norheast in Cleveland we have Mitchells' whose apricot makes me sigh. And in the center is Jeni's, named by a couple of mags as the best in America, and maybe the world. My favorite is goat Cheese with Cherries, though in winter it's Goat Cheese with Fig. Yummmmmm/

Ayrton Senna, Emerson Fittipaldi, Tony Kanaan, and other great Brazilian racers


Topic Men and Periods.
Posted 14 Oct 2012 18:46

That depends on the women. I have had a serious relationship with women whose periods were extraordinarily difficult and painful, where sex was out of the question. One underwent a hysterectomy in order to end it Others it has been no big deal, and were very receptive when menstruating. Really, it's all about her. If she wants to, it's good. But her body and physical space is going through things we men thankfully avoid. We need to let our partners be our guide.

Movie poster, but too small to see which film.

Topic Romney appraisal
Posted 07 Oct 2012 19:55

I really don't care about Mitt's jeans, but in truth he is the biggest liar I've ever seen in 40 years of following elections, and he represents a party which has left the reality train far behind. I have to wonder if there is a single lie that man won't tell, and what will happen if he really is elected.

Topic Ask the person below you any question
Posted 02 Oct 2012 19:16

Showers on a daily basis, bubble bath if I have company. You have more time, and I have a big water heater.

Have you ever done it an an automobile?

Topic What does your username mean?
Posted 01 Oct 2012 18:45

It means that I have been a first-post-divorce boyfriend so many times my head spins. And sadly, two of the deepest loves of my life came that way, when I dated a woman who was in no way emotionally ready to commit. Luck matters, and sometimes it doesn't go your way.

Topic Private, semi-public or public?
Posted 30 Sep 2012 17:45

private generally.... but there is something exciting about the possibility of being seen....

Agreed, and even if you were to 'show off' it would be best in a place where no one would know you.

Topic Why is the person above you locked in your bedroom?
Posted 08 Sep 2012 18:58

To keep me out.

Topic Just wondering - can relationships begun through Lush last?
Posted 13 Jun 2012 14:57

I think it possible they can last, but lets face it, like on the net is often directly proportional to distance. You aren't going to meet someone here you can ask out Saturday night. And so many people are married, which adds another barrier.

Topic Do you have any non erotic literary influences?
Posted 13 Jun 2012 10:20

My influences outside of erotic-- most of them actually-- I wrote my first erotic story after reading Gene Wolfe's SF classic 'The Book of the New Sun'. Tolkien, Connie Willis, Bruce Catton, Ursula LeGuin are much bigger influences

Topic Websites Will Be Forced To Identify Trolls
Posted 12 Jun 2012 08:30

If fined, you can contest it in a court. Usually it's cheaper to pay the fine, but as a matter of course a court challenge makes both sides present evidence to defend their case.

Human beings never see the same language exactly the same way. It is not defensible to argue that then net would not be better off anonymous abusers, who often say truly vile and inflammatory things they'd never dare to say in person. On the other hand, defining what constitutes such abuse. If it's confined only to the most egregious cases probably no one will have a problem, but one man's egregious is another's "I wish they hadn't".

And this is the problem. People routinely call city councilmen, and even their congressman's office over barking dogs, their neighbor's ham set, all sorts of juvenile things. Politicians know that people remember the time you said 'no' to them far more sharply then the time they did something well liked. People who have thin skins in one area, tend to have it for another and so to say "that really isn't bad enough" is difficult for them unless it can be done by some faceless bureaucrat, who then gets the blame. Your city councilmen has to seem concerned-- not matter what he or she actually thinks-- lest the complainer decide to take it personally during the next election. A lot of what they do is try to mollify people. So until the courts offer actual guidance as to what is and is not acceptable matters will be interesting. At $20 a pop for a fine, versus mega lawyer bills, my guess is most people will pay until and unless some big organization with money gets in on their behalf.

Topic Deciding between two girls
Posted 05 Jun 2012 06:53

I don't think anyone I've ever dated would have been okay with an open relationship. Most women aren't, or at least the sort I attract, all are interested in commitment. Often that isn't an option. If things are at a low level, enjoy and perhaps someone will stand out. If you're serious about someone, you really owe it to them to put their needs first.

Topic Sex before marriage? Or marriage before sex?
Posted 05 Jun 2012 06:43

In my view it's silly to wait until marriage in order to have sex, but it's also silly not to use contraceptives and that's a bargain some people make.

But to give it a brief defense, if you know you won't have sex before marriage then your dating goals may be more 'get to know her' then 'get in the sack', which is certainly better in the long run.

Topic Should all nuclear power stations be decommissioned?
Posted 04 Jun 2012 09:27

Certainly the recent accident made a powerful argument against nuclear power but I'd say no. The truth is poor people don't care about the environment, and we need power in order to keep people working. We also have a big upcoming issue with carbon pollution. Solar and the increasing use of wind power can help, but they'll only handle the growth of our population. There is no such thing as clean coal, so yeah, we do need to keep the nuclear plants going and even produce new ones to ensure a continuous supply of clean energy. And we allso need to learn from that accident and put that knowledge into the design of new plants.

Topic Have you ever been strip searched?
Posted 29 May 2012 11:16

Not yet, but when Officer Teri Hatcher pulls me over I'm ready. In all seriousness, it would never be fun to be surrounded by a bunch of cops wearing plastic gloves. It would be humiliating, and would make me angry as well. Something to think about when we call for more and more intrusion into other people's bodies.

Topic The next "Crusade"
Posted 28 May 2012 18:21

I think the next Crusade will be here, a clash between fundamentalists whose grip on reality grows ever more tenuous and more afraid of the rise of secularism, and i think it will be fought with terror mostly.

There's something about the small of a woman's back, the way her spine curves in then out for her bottom. Mmmmmmm.

Topic Your Favorite Celebrity Crush
Posted 15 May 2012 20:24

My first was Diana Rigg playing Mrs. Emma Peel
Later on I sort of had a crush on a Playboy Playmate of the year named Victoria Edwards until I heard her speak. Bad voice.
More recently I wanted to bag the character Commander Ivanova from Babylon 5 played by Claudia Christian
Then it was Mary McDonnel's character President Laura Roslin on the new Battlestar Galactica.
right now there are no crushes. Jenna Fischer, Amy Adams and Nicole Kidman all went and married someone else, but then how could they have known I was available.
But if you're out there Catherine Keener, you know where to find me.

Topic Breasts, boobs or tits?
Posted 14 Apr 2012 06:05

Depends on how you plan to use the word. Breasts is more sensual, boobs are funnier and more casual, tits a term I don't like so much. Hooters is also a more comical term.

Topic Can a girl make you cum more then once without you doing anything in a day?
Posted 31 Mar 2012 20:50

Yes. Once, and only once I actually enjoyed a multiple orgasms, with two small ones followed by final big one. I was rally surprised by it, and wondered if that was what it was like for girls.
