TMI Tuesday #86 – How time flies

1. Should guys wear pink?

On some guys it looks very good. On others it doesn’t. I’m one of the latter. So guys can get away with wearing pink. Then again I cannot wear orangey yellow colors. Looks very bad on me.

2. Do you kiss with your eyes open or closed?

Depends on the degree of the kiss. If it’s just a peck type thing eyes open is ok. Anything that involves prolonged sealing of lips, a little tongue, etc. and the old eyes just slam shut. Next thing you know, it’s time for wood.

3. What is the first “non-physical” feature you tend to notice about a person you find attractive?

Sense of humor probably rates as the first thing. If you can’t laugh at the absolute absurdity of life I don’t want to know you.

4. Have you ever showered with someone of the opposite sex?

Yes I have. I’m such a freak. Then again I’m a che^h^h frugal bastard but then I realized, when you shower with a friend chances are it’s going to last longer than it normally does. So what saving is there?

5. Would you rather receive amazing oral sex or have amazing sex?

Oooo – this is a really tough one. Oral sex is pretty damned good. You know the old saying, if I could lick my own balls I’d never leave the house. Well, that should explain it. Another one is the old rhetorical question “Why does a dog lick his balls? Because he can.”

Bonus (as in optional): If you could say anything you wanted anonymously to anyone, without identifying that person, what would you say?

You are a sniveling coward. The lowliest piece of excrement, belay that, the lowliest scum that feeds on excrement.

Once again, it’s just too much information

1. When you orgasm, do you hold your breath?

Nope – I’m more a growler/gasper. If I held my breath I’d pass out.

2. Have you ever had sex or played around with a celebrity?

No I haven’t. No such thing in this area.

3. Do you think prostitution should be legal? Why or why not?

Yes I think it should be legal. First of all legality would drive off the illicit human trafficking. Second of all if the law proscribed specific rules like medical care, etc. I’d be all for it. As it stands now in RI prostitution within a building is not illegal. That’s right – a loophole in the law that our legislature is loathe to close.

It’s been going on for thousands of years. The only ones who really get their underpants in a bunch about it are religious people.

4. How do you masturbate? Do you romance yourself? Get straight to the point? Read erotic material?

Read? Who said anything about reading. I’m a visual creature and one who goes straight to the task at hand, so to speak.

5. Which gives you the most pleasure – intercourse, masturbating for/with your partner, being masturbated by your partner.

Definitely the partner. I’m getting aroused just thinking about that.

Bonus (as in optional): Have you ever had a crush on a relative?

No I haven’t. My relatives look a bit too much like me and I don’t get into the whole fuck yourself thing.

TMI #84 – The Time Sure Does Fly

1. What was your first job?

Working at NHD in 1980. It was a hardware store in which I learned all about plumbing, electrical, etc. that I needed to know in order to get through life without being a total spaz.

2. When did you go to your first funeral?

That would be the age of 13 when my mom died from metastatic breast cancer.

3. What is the sexiest word in the English dictionary?

Erection, and I’m not talking about the day you go into the booth and cast your vote.

4. Are you left handed or right handed? Which direction does the top of your head lean when you kiss on the lips?

Interestingly I’m ambidextrous but with a very slight preference for the left hand. But a kiss – well I’m leaning right.

5. Males: Which way do you dress?

For work it’s business casual most days, which means I’m missing a tie. Otherwise it’s jeans, a t-shirt or a lacoste type shirt. Shoes are interesting, they’re Converse All Stars but in suede and get this, they’re a sneaker that’s also a loafer. Everybody loves them. I’ve got two pairs, one in brown, one in black. Then I have regular sneakers, hikers, and that’s it.

Sometimes it really is TOO MUCH

It’s TMI Tuesday #83:
1. Have you ever used foods in your sexual activities (ie; whipped cream, syrup, popsicles) and how did you use them?

Chocolate syrup and whipped cream. It’s sticky, messy and fun. As to how they were used just imagine the relevant parts saturated with the stuff and some oral fun.

2. If your SO asked you to get them off using only your toes – would you do it and how?

Sorry, toe jam doesn’t play into my idea of a fun time.

3. Would you ever participate in an orgy? Have you?

Yes I did in my younger days. It was fun but a little void if you know what I mean.

4. What can a lover do to turn you on instantly?

Start kissing me. Seriously, that’s pretty much all it takes.

5. Describe your favorite piece of lingerie or undergarments on yourself or your mate. (PICS PLEASE!!!)

Nothing. Well, if need be certain underwear looks very good. But I can’t figure out how to post pics on this site yet.

It’s that time again kids, TMI Tuesday #81

1. Ideal amount of sex per week?

Hmmm – as if you have to ask. Daily would be good.

2. Ever had an online affair?

Nah – lacks the physical and I’m all about the physical.

3. Are you a member of the mile high club?

Nope. Never had a long enough flight to engage in anything serious.

4. Are you predjudice against any particular group of people?

None at all. I may be a bit misogynistic sometimes but I’m usually pretty reserved about that. It’s just that in my experience, I strongly dislike working for a woman. Maybe it’s because the vast majority of women I’ve worked for have been overcompensating bitches.

5. What constitutes bad sex?

I don’t get off. That’s bad sex.

Bonus (as in optional): Can females ejaculate?

From what I’ve seen around the web, yes they can.

Can you do this? haha

I’m male, and yes I can squirt.

TMI Tuesday #78

1. Stubble… good or bad? How often do you shave?

On me, good. I shave daily though some weekend I might skip shaving if only because it’s easier to shave with a little bit of a beard than without.

2. How often do you kiss (read make out) with your so?

First off, it’s SO which is an abbreviation for Significant Other. Anyhow, we don’t do it nearly as much as I’d like.

3. Have you ever placed a personal ad or answered a personal ad?

We’re children of the 80’s. Of course we’ve done the personal ad thing both in printed media and online. I remember the Providence Newpaper (Now the Phoenix) and reading the ads. SWM seeks, GWM seeks, BiWM seeks. Lots of guys, not a lot of girls. So yes on both counts.

4. Where was the first place you ever had sex?

Oh that’s a tough one. First time was in my own apartment. I know, late bloomer but I more than made up for it.

5. After a night of great sex, who do you tell? How much?

Certain friends. Actually for some reason everyone can tell when I’ve gotten laid. It’s the strangest thing. Maybe it’s me grinning like the cat that ate the canary.

It’s that time again, TMI Tuesday #74

1. What is your favorite charity? Do you you give your time or just money to that charity?

One I consistently donate to via the State Employees Charitable Appeal (SECA) is Potter League for Animals. They get about $150 a year out of me. I’m also big on literacy programs.

2. Describe your bed. What side do you sleep on?

It’s a full motion waterbed that I keep at 100F during the winter. I generally sleep on the left side.

3. How important is a partners kissing ability?

I’d rate it pretty high. If you’re like kissing a dead fish that pretty much kills it for me.

4. Have you ever purposely tried to seduce someone over a long period of time?

I’m kind of singular like that. If I want someone I put my all into it. I can also be very direct, just ask Keyron.

5. Top or bottom?

Definitely top. Not that I haven’t explored a bit but I’ve found that more to my tastes.

Bonus (as in optional): Have you ever shaved your pubic hair?

Hasn’t everyone done that at one point or another, I mean it was a trend for awhile. But now I’m au naturale. Wild and woolly.

It’s TMI Tuesday Again #73

1. Have you ever orgasmed sitting at your computer? What was the situation?

I’ve had a computer since I was 13 years old and I’m 42 now. You tell me.

2. Ever been sexual harassed? What happened?

Not to my knowledge. Oh I’ve been stalked but I think that’s different and I rather enjoyed the attention.

3. Who is your hottest nerd crush?

Hmmm… most of the nerds I know are people you wouldn’t want to even fantasize about. So I’ll have to pass on this one.

4. Can a man have multiple orgasms?

Yes he can. The recovery time is just longer.

5. Is there such a thing as too much sex?

Yes, when ones private parts are red and raw it’s time to stop masturbating/fucking/getting sucked.

TMI Tuesday Again

So this is TMI Tuesday #72. I know I’ve been remiss since transitioning here but this one was too interesting to pass up.

1. Commando: Sexy or disgusting? Do you have a “best” commando story?

It can be sexy – but sometimes you like to unwrap a package the proper way. Anyhow best commando story was late one night I’m in the computer room with my network guy and helpdesk girl. I don’t know how the subject came up but it turned out we were all going commando.

2. Foreplay: Is there such a thing as too much?

Yes – too much foreplay that leads to orgasm is definitely excessive.

3. Oral sex: Good if you are getting? Good is you are giving? Equally ewwwww?

Both, though I am partial to getting.

4. Orgasm: Is one per night enough or does the first one just get your motor running?

I’m so exquisitely sensitive that one is more than enough. We’re talking pass out type orgasms here. So one per would do though there have been occasions were six or seven have happened.

5. Morning sex: “Oh hell yes!”, “Well if I have, too.” or “Just get in the shower and go to work.”

It does happen. I just text message in that I’ll be late and then let the fun begin.

Bonus (as in optional): Have you ever had anonymous sex? Have you ever had an orgasm without at least knowing your partner’s last name?

Yes and yes.

Cool Science Facts Daily – Homeobox Genes

Every now and then I see something I want to expand upon on CSFD. Today’s is about homeobox functions in living beings.

In essence the homeobox genes are templates. We all use templates on a regular basis. A form is a type of template, as is the XML used to generate most Web 2.0 content.

Homeobox genes are structural in the sense that they don’t tell you how to build an eye for example, but where to put the eye. So it explains why our eyes aren’t on the ends of our fingers. Some flies might protest that fact since experiments have made perfectly functional fly eyes grow on said flies legs.

We’re gradually unlocking the functions of all our genes and in the process finding that we’re related to pretty much all multi-cellular life with the exception of trees and grasses. The only issue I have with all this discovery is the ridiculous notion of patenting a gene.

Patents are completely out of whack these days and we need to reform that system without delay. Otherwise the very processes that keep us alive might be patented, requiring us to pay royalties to the patent holder. Imagine patenting the process that keeps us breathing, or our heart beating. That’s essentially what is happening with the genes that underlie those processes.
