What REALLY upsets me, is that every June young men and women are allowed to MATRICULATE together and they do it up on stage where everyone can see!

There's only one [i]logical[/i] way to have sex. Anything that's illogical is irrational and absurd. That equates with incorrect to me.

If I thought for a second you were serious, this might be an interesting debate. No fun to debate with someone who is just being perverse.

Oh well, I have a floor to mop anyway.

And we all know there is only one way to do that.

Why don't you mop it with your tongue? If you just enjoy doing things in perverted ways, why stop with sex?

Inyun;

Actually, all that elicit MATRICULATION ("entering!") tends to occur in the fall, or at the beginning of the winter semester. Those young people GRADUATE in the spring. Still, utterly shocking, especially considering the amount of debt they incur for their folly. :)

Another poster asked, and yes, Anne Rice did, in fact, publish some erotica early in her career (pre-Lestat) under the pen name A. N. Roquelaire. "The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty" and two other books.

cheers

oh my, grade A pervert, at your service :-)

I take it you don't ever masturbate, as that would be illogical?

I don't think we're ever going to agree on this subject, but just to show there's no hard feelings I've agreed with your book tags and tweeted a link. you never know, one of my perverted followers might buy it ;-)

Wow, at first I thought you were just an anonymous poster, didn't take the time to ck your profile.

Having a bad day? Are you always this contrary? Just wondering.

Now that is pretty damn funny.

Ya' know, I have a line of greeting cards over at Greeting Card Universe - and one of my more popular lines are my congrats for coming out of the closet - also popular are my gay balloon people, for wedding congrats.

No, his head will probably explode. And that would be messy.

I wouldn't have thought so at all, in fact I really think it would be extremely complicated and take a lot of talent.
It isn't just about arousing the reader but about emotionally stimulating them too isn't it? - otherwise it would just be porn I would have thought.
I think it would take serious talent.
(just an opinion)

I haven't read any personally and to be honest I don't even know why now that I think about it!
oooo see this thread might make my hubbys day hehehe now I am tempted :D

No no...it is not a balloon.....

I have a line of greeting cards, called Balloon people. They are featured on some wedding card.


Example:

I have some other cards (not Balloon People) that have coming out cards. And yes, people actually buy them. :)
