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 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

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.

Topic How would you seduce a younger woman?
Posted 17 Mar 2012 11:19

The same way I'd seduce an older woman. By paying attention to her and what she says, by treating her with respect and with the occasional flirtacious comment to see her response.

Topic A more democratic government
Posted 17 Mar 2012 11:17

None of the questions Buz asked can really be debated in a 90 seconds, which seems to be TVs idea of attention span. But yes, I do consider the U.S. a democracy because I think it unworkable for 300 million people to hold a plebiscite on everything, particularly when small issues of language can change matters greatly. The devil in politics is often in the details, and if people aren't willing to spend thirty minutes a day, minimum on the news, how are they going to be expected to read a budget before they vote on it?

The issue today is more that our election system is 1) entirely too dependent on money which shifts power toward those who have it, and 2) that our system is designed to create mass, ideologically heterogenous poliitical parties with a local focus, and one of them, the GOP has become a purely ideological party thanks to the right-wing media and the take over of the nomination process by ideological conservatives. GOP moderates have for some years now been terrified of making sense lest they be accused of being RINO's and facing a primary challenge from the right, the sort of which defeated long time Pennsylvania Republican Arlen Spector.

Congress exists to slow down government to ensure that things America does are wanted by the country as a whole but it has long been known that a determined minority can wield power outside their numbers. But compromise is essential if we want issues dealt with. I am far more frightened by a man who has never crossed the lines then a man who has "always stood by his principles". IF we want our government to work well, the real solution is about four elections in a row where the GOP loses big, which will force them to choose between their hard right and power.

America needs an opposition party, but it can't get on when one party is run by fanatics and one is not. Right now our debates rarely center on reality, we need to return to reality of we are to move forward.

Canada is a nation we could learn a lot from. It seems every day that some Republican introduces a bill even more bizarre then the rest. I feel like I'm living in the middle of Voltaire's Candide.

the small of a woman's back where it arches down and in, then curves back out again for the swell of her bottom. Beautiful, and very lickworthy.

Topic Threesomes
Posted 23 Feb 2012 15:53

Of course I have the fantasy of myself and two women, but I suspect in real life they're much more problematic. If everyone is straight, then somebody is going to feel like a third wheel. If its me and two girls, is my partner going to feel threatened? And frankly, I suspect that if I meet someone who cares about me enough to make the offer, she won't want to share me. Frankly, vanilla still tastes pretty good so I don't feel left out.

Topic What do you prefer: slim or the fuller figure?
Posted 18 Feb 2012 09:32

If I get my choice, I'll take Nicole Kidman. But in the real world you don't and a body is a wrapping for a brain, and it's the brain that really matters. When you really like someone they get better looking, and what they have becomes what you like. It's that simple.
