  1. Canine anatomy

    Something odd I've seen in all the diagrams and descriptions of female reproductive systems is that they just say 'vagina' and never make mention of the vestibule. Maybe I shouldn't be surprised; that one at the top of this page doesn't even identify the vulva.
  2. I've been reading "This is Your Brain on Parasites" by Kathleen McAuliffe, and found this in Chapter 9 (dealing with our emotion of disgust and how it helps us avoid disease) ... [There was a paragraph on how, when people get hungry enough, they'll eat disgusting things. The following excerpt is what opened my eyes.] "Just as hunger can sometimes overpower disgust, so, too, can lust--an adaptation that may have been essential to help our ancestors overcome any reservations about mixing body fluids during reproduction. In support of that view, [Valerie] Curtis points to an experiment conducted at UC Berkeley in which male students were asked to predict how much they'd enjoy having sex in several scenarios. Next, they were instructed to masturbate nearly to the point of climax and again provide responses to the same questionnaire. Sexual acts that they'd previously found off-putting suddenly became much more appealing in their aroused state. The number interested in having intercourse with an obese woman, anal sex, and bestiality, for example, shot up 11 percent, 67 percent, and 167 percent, respectively." Unless I'm interpreting this incorrectly, it looks to me that if a young man gets horny enough, he'll prefer fucking an animal two-and-a-half to one over a human's asshole, and FIFTEEN-to-one over an obese woman. And he'll prefer the human asshole six-to-one over the obese woman. Did I get that right?

  8. I'd like to apologize

    Good to hear you're doing better. Get outdoors and move around as much as you can; that helps.

  15. How many human partners have you had?

    Are we only counting sex partners here? Four ... two males, two females. The males were just fuck-buddies, nothing romantic, both while I was in high school. The first female was my HS girlfriend; screwed her once when we were kind of drifting apart ... saw her once more and we split. Second female, I married ... big mistake; I won't go into details. Got divorced and had a string of catastrophic attempts at dating. Finally figured out I'd be doing all women a favor by leaving them alone. I like human females, but I'm really lousy at relationships with them. I do have a female friend, but she lives about three states away and we exchange emails and talk on the phone once in a while, so we're friends. I have met her in person once, but I'd be afraid of wrecking the friendship if we got any closer.
