I posted this to my own journal this morning and it's sister site Evil Cheese, but what do you guys think of this story?
Bleary eyed I wake up this morning for the usual wake up routine, check the Facebook, read about 100 emails that came in post midnight and check that the Zombie Apocolypse hasn't hit the world through the BBC News app.
All fairly standard, until I see the news story that the Catholic Education Service has been getting a bit too political for it's boots
right next to Katie Price defiling the holy scanctity
that they claim marriage is.Of course I made the mistake of reading the article at this time in the morning and it actually annoyed me, with particular attention to the first few lines:-
It emerged this week that the CES wrote to nearly 400 state-funded Roman Catholic schools inviting them to back a petition against gay civil marriage.
Schools and teachers are forbidden to promote one-sided political arguments.
The CES has denied breaking any laws, saying Catholic views on marriage are religious, not political.
Yes, you are correct you can hold any views you like based on your religion. However, when you get people to sign a petition to prevent others getting on with their lives, that makes it political.
The CES was also was quoted as saying ..Catholics believe that 'marriage is a high and noble vocation'...
could you perhaps tell that to the Oak Finished Katie Price with her string of failed marriages and of course Britney Spears
and her drunken violation of the "high and noble vocation"
How about you have a look at the two below videos and come up with a reason why two people who love each other and been in a stable relationship for many years should be prevented from marriage; that others seem to be doing every few years with a new person just because they can.

I would consider myself to be nonsexual. I just don't find anyone attractive whether they are male or female. Isn't sex overrated? People talk about it as if it is the greatest thing ever. I think that there have got to be other things that are more interesting. However, I don't know. I've never tried it.
I guess somewhere in the back of my mind that I am a little bit curious. What does it feel like? Doesn't it hurt? I would think that getting rammed by someone else would be painful and awful. What do you ever get out of it? Why would anyone want to do oral? Doesn't it make you gag? What exactly does it taste like? Isn't it awful and painful to the person giving?
Has anyone ever tried it with both genders? Does it feel any different?
Where do you get it? Do you just go on some website and find promiscuous people who offer sex to strangers? Isn't that a little dangerous? What if the person turns out to be a psycho killer or robber?
Are younger guys starting to have bigger penises these days?
In the past, practically everyone was "average" and there was a full range of sizes. Even porn stars (with the exception of the occasional huge "freak" that got cast because of his penis, not his face or body....especially in straight porn) were in the average range (including the lower end), and there were a lot of bottoms with hot bodies that actually had small penises. Today, though, even with the vast variety of models offered by the explosion of internet porn, porn stars all seem to be large or at least in the upper range of average. What's more, young guys straight and gay are doing bathroom mirror self-pics and posting them online by the millions, and they all seem to be above-average in size.
Certainly, those with smaller endowments are less likely to display their wares to the world at large, but based on what's on the internet these days, are there any young guys with penises shorter than seven inches?
Now, I'm 50 years old, so "average" to me is about 5 to 6.5, inches, with most being 5.5 to 6. Also, I'm from a generation when guys used to shower together in open shower rooms, unlike the 20-somethings today who seem scared to take their pants off in public in front of other men and don't shower at the gym (or if they do, it's in a private stall), so I no longer have a large pool of the younger general male population to observe. However, being gay (duh), I still get the occasional opportunity to notice things from all age groups, although my sample pool of live, in-person, naked guys is probably 75% gay. Older guys continue to be "average" and have a full range of sizes. Younger guys seem to be surprisingly bigger and the smaller sizes are uncommon. In fact, in the past ten years, I've only had the opportunity to observe up close one younger guy who had a small penis. I've seen recent pictures and videos from my nephew's fraternity's annual pre-initiation pledge activities, and every single one of those pledges was above average in length. I've also seen his huge collection of self-pics sent to him by gay guys at his college looking to hook up, and they are all....impressive.
Now, I know I'm speaking in generalities here. I don't have any scientific data. The younger generation continues to have guys with all sizes of penises. It just seems to me that there has been a vast skewing of the average to considerably bigger sizes now.
1) Growth hormones given to cows and chickens in the food supply are causing kids to grow bigger penises.
2) Because of internet porn and more societal acceptance of gays, younger guys masturbated a whole lot more during their teenaged years, and that led to increased size.
3) Flaccid size has increased, but erect size remains the same.
4) More guys are "showwers" than "growers" these days (possibly because of #2, above?).
5) HIV killed off all the smaller guys (but this would only explain the gay population).
6) Gay guys are bigger now, but straight guys continue to be average with a full range of sizes.
Thoughts? Observations? Discussion?
From now on, any new members who want to join the community are going to have to clear it with gregoid
or myself. I'm sick of seeing those stupid advertisements made by spambots, so now we're going to be viewing the profiles and journals of those who want to join to see if they're humans rather than those creepy spammers.

I just wanted to introduce myself. I am Jenna, 22 and a wife and mother. :]
I am hoping to find more friends who are non-biased and who enjoy chatting about anything, really. :]
I am really big into languages and cultures.

The last time I posted in here, I had just been dumped. But since then I have met a really nice guy, and I am starting to develop some serious feelings for him. We've been dating for about three months now, and I really like what he offers. I would like to move to serious dating with him, and I have told him that. The great thing is that his feelings for me are pretty much the same.
The bad thing is that his former partner may come back into the picture down the road. They were a couple for about four years before 2007 when his partner moved away from Atlanta for a job in VA (the bf already had his dream job here in Atlanta, so he didn't want to move since he couldn't get a job like it in VA). From how I understand it, they went into this understanding that this was a hiatus in the relationship, and they were both free to have sex with other men, and they'd resume the relationship when the partner comes back to Atlanta in 2012 (apparently the job has a defined time line and everything). Initially, that what the bf was: a hookup. But along the way we realized that we have some amazing chemistry together, and exploring that chemistry has yielded some awesome results.
Now here is the tricky part: the boyfriend has not told his former partner that I am anything more than a good friend who he went to Dragon*Con with. I have made it quite clear to my boyfriend what kind of relationship I want from him (including introducing him to my family to show him I'm dead serious about my feelings), what I need from him (i.e. tell his partner), and that I will leave the relationship (unwillingly) if he is not able to make himself available for something beyond serious dating. If anything happens, it would happen after we pass the six month mark to one year mark. If he's available past then, then awesome. If he isn't, well I'm not going to make myself emotionally available just to get dumped in a year (nor will I be "the other man").
What I would like to hear is whether or not any of ya'll have been in similar situations, how you handled it, and what happened. I mean I really like my boyfriend, but I don't want to get really hurt, and its kind of difficult trying to figure this out. Thanks! :)
I am inviting you to participate in a survey that I am conducting on faking orgasm. I am a student at SUNY New Paltz. The survey is for a research project on faking orgasm. It has been approved by the Institutional Review Board. In the survey you will be asked a few questions on your own experiences and feelings on orgasm and faking orgasm as well as some general questions on the topic. It is not necessary to have faked, not faked, or even to have had any type of sexual interaction before. This survey is aimed to get the opinions of everyone. It is open to the public only requiring that those who take it are 18 years of age or older and live in the U.S. Participation is voluntary and all responses are anonymous. It will take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete. If you feel uncomfortable, you may stop at any time. All responses will be very appreciated. Thank you
for your time!
*I am currently trying to obtain a larger participation from people of every sexuality type, so I can potentially have a representative sample. Don't want anyone to be left one =)
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please contact me at: NPorgasmresearch@gmail.com
Below is a link to the survey:Click here to take survey
There was a limit from the start had I only seen it. There were obstacles in the way that I didn't notice, the honey moon of acceptance is over. it was never complete.
My mother wants me to be happy but she can't imagine how happy will I be between a man's arms, she'd rather less masculine skeleton beside me in bed, longer hair and a pair of ample breasts.
Who could have guessed that development! quite a trick I have to say; for I knew her so much to be deceived by an acceptance speech that she released until the next round of negotiations start. I am not shocked at all, I guess this is kind of the natural reaction I expected from her, perhaps she was so shocked that her mind took a period to make its own maths.
It all began with happy news from my sister's side that made us all elated for several days, amid the cheerful atmosphere mom started praying for the next list of wishes: for all of us to stay healthy and in the best shape, for our conditions to improve, my older brother to marry and of course for the house to be filled with little grandchildren.
I won't lie and say that I don't know why I had to comment on that nice prayer: it did sting that no prayer was put for my future right there and I had to remind her of our deals -otherwise they could be forgotten.
"And for me to get my other half as well!" I added with a smile and she added a fevered amen to the modification before repeating it with slight modification of her own, "For me to get a wife"
It struck me then that we're gonna start another round of debates about my sexuality and I went so sour; time hasn't been treating me well these last few months and I couldn't bear it to loose the only shelter I had. I decided to go on and debate for my own interest.
"This will never happen, mother" I responded in a tone of finality. "You know that gay guys don't marry girls" ( Read more...Collapse )
