When two people are under the influence of the most violent, most insane, most delusive, and most transient of passions, they are required to swear that they will remain in that excited, abnormal, and exhausting condition continuously until death do them part.
I have another quote that sticks in my mind and has for the past twenty plus years, however it is not of the "inspirational variety". I will, however, share it here because we're all friends now right? It requires a small bit of back story. I had a tight group of guys that I grew up with that lived in my neighborhood. We hung out every day in grade school and high school played football or basketball every day after school and all summer long, basically until dark. As we got older and discovered girls, we started to date. One of my buddies (we'll call him J to preserve the guilty) was dating a girl (named M) and she was one of the first girls he had sex with. Apparently M was also dating my other friend (we'll call him C) and was sleeping with him as well. Apparently J found out that C was doing the nasty with M when J thought he and M were in an exclusive relationship. Needless to say, fireworks erupted between my two good friends upon the discovery that M was sleeping with both J and C, and doing quite a few nasty things with each, sometimes on the same day. After much discussion (with me trying to mediate to avoid said friends beating the shit out of each other), J got a rather puzzled look on his face. C looked very concerned.
"Dude, look, I just have one question" said J to C, after much pondering.
Looking rather perplexed, C waited with anticipation for said question, wondering what on Earth could be coming next. Is the friendship over? Has he permanently destroyed the brotherhood? "Sure, anything man" replied C.
"How the hell can you kiss where my dick's been?" Boom, mic dropped. C then realized, not only had he been kissing where J's dick had been, he'd been licking and sucking there too. Awkward silence followed....Neither one of them ever slept with her again. Perhaps a bit of a long story, but that quote has stuck with me from that moment on and the story still comes up now and then when we are all together and it happened over 20 years ago. I hope you found it a bit humorous as we all need a laugh now and then.

RealMustangGuy: Thank you worksforme2. That helps but this site is really confusing for me for some reason. I'll keep trying to figure it out though. Thank you again for your explanation.

RealMustangGuy: When using a member's username in a post, how does one get it to be in different color and work as a link? I can type in the name but after posting it doesn't look the same as when others use member's usernames in their posts.

bfar: Just stumbled on this article:https://masculinebydesign.com/sexless-marriage-is-symptomatic-of-emasculated-husbands/ was more than a little disconcerting. Are we digging ourselves further in the hole by trying to be all enlightened and sensitive?

petrushka: Mate, what's the alternative to all enlightened and sensitive here? Rape? Coercion? Sexual assault? Thanks, but I can do better than being a complete arsehole (or psychopath for that matter).

bfar: Petrushka... I'm just wondering if we shot ourselves in the foot, as it were, by giving giving up on our strength, and giving in to the feminist agenda of making men irrelevant.

petrushka: Sorry, I don't buy into that at all. I'm not giving up anything. I've been into the "feminist agenda" for nearly 60 years. Having an empowered partner empowers me. I want strong women around me who take responsibility for themselves and who can face me

petrushka: I see 'strong men', and controlling bullies, as basically weak, lacking confidence and self esteem -- hence they think they need to assert themselves that way. I loathe patriarchy as much as matriarchy. Partners should be equals.

petrushka: In my world view, you are buying into some really shitty memes there.

apocrypha: The "feminist agenda" has changed across the past 60 years. Some feminists of the 60's call the current iteration "fainting couch feminism", thinking it a subversion and betrayal of women's lib. Hard to get a bead on what folks think, using a broad label.

apocrypha: No aspect of that article (which I amount to a magazine offering bad diet advice) promotes rape, coercion (beyond seduction), sexual assault, and I don't understand your public performance suggesting that they would be and thus implicating bfar.

mirrororchid: pfar, being sensitive means understanding how others think and feel. It doesn't mean you are compelled to adopt their thoughts and feelings. This is a matter of understanding people including loved ones. If you aren't sensitive, you lack tools to

mirrororchid: live well. You need not soften, but you should be able to understand vulnerability. Recognizing others' distress provides me with cues when I need to use self-control or extend help. If you're strong, you should be helping others. Use what works.
