    This is Miranda Kerr, an Australian Victoria’s Secret model.

    Now, the fact that I certainly wouldn’t mind taking a shower with her aside, is she beautiful? Really beautiful? I’m asking this as a philosophical question. What about a rose?

    a bird of paradise?

    a puma?

    A McLaren roadster?

    or a Hokusai block print?

    Is anything REALLY…[Read more]

    You know it is possible to turn down a blow job, unseen. OK who am I kidding.

    Actually, if you’ll remember, in another thread I related several examples of sex I walked away from because the females were drunk.

    But my ghost wasn’t drunk, just crazy, as it turned out.

    Ghosting: Something that really truly cannot be understood until you experience or even do it (even only partially) yourself. The conclusions I’ve made about it are the following. 1. Ghosting is really dispicable cruel human behaviour 2. Some of the nicest kindest caring people are capable of doing it. 3. Many people who ghost s…

    Unseen, swinging and polyamory are different. For you romance is an ardent and intense attraction. That seems a viable definition albeit subject to elaboration. Polyamorous have that with partners instead of a partner. I have little doubt that the psyche of those who opt for polyamory is atypical. Regardless of the arrangement…

    @JakeLafort I suspect polyamorous relationships are not romantic relationships at all. They may be close as friends, but any romance is characterized by an ardent and intense attraction, which is why they tend to be selfish. They may love each other in polyamorous pairings, but it is a cousin of friends with benefits. Their relationship may have…[Read more]

  • That article on consciousness was interesting though, predictably, it ultimately didn’t solve the problem. There’s no way to prove that others are not “philosophical zombies” behaving in a humanlike way but totally lacking the inner life we call “consciousness.” At the end , he invokes a kind of spirit or soul…

    From the article:

    In romance, you want to HAVE this other person FOREVER. You don’t want to LOSE them to someone else. This is why so much romance ends with pregnancy. Did you know that the #1 cause of death of pregnant women isn’t complications of childbirth? It’s murder!

    I suspect a proponent of polyamory will say that the exercise of power in a romantic relationship is the antithesis of love. Love elevates the romantic partner. It does not put her in shackles. Sex it will be said is a desire or need that is independent of the partner’s bond. Giving each other permission to have sex with o…

    Yes, that is true..parents for their kids. Interesting take Unseen, bout power in polyamorous. I think polyamorous people would laugh at that notion.

    Well, then perhaps they aren’t romantic relationships at all, but friendships as I define them. Eh? I’m right either way.

    Love is sharing half of your favorite meal. It is getting as much satisfaction from their pleasure as your own. It is feeling their pain…not running…doing utmost to relieve their pain. It is honesty except when honesty is on balance a bad decision. It is a form of intimacy in which you reveal things to the other you will not oth…

    Hmmm…Love is tricky, yeah? But I think there can be true love between partners minus the obsession.

    Their passion bond collapses into a deep friendship.

  • Unseen replied to the topic What is love? in the forum Small Talk 2 days, 14 hours ago

    You don’t think romantic love can also encompass true friendship, especially after years and years?

    As years go by, romantic love often improves into friendship. Many couples stay together, loving each other as friends, even after the passionate sexual bond has dissolved.

    How do you define love? For me, love is wanting what is best for the other person, even if it’s not what you’d want for yourself.

    Parents express their love, for example, by encouraging a son or daughter to take go to college in a faraway place because it’s a great opportunity, even though they would much prefer to have her attend school…[Read more]

  • Devout Irish Catholics are going crazy again with the latest image of the Virgin Mary on an antique cabinet. I did once see the Big Bang in a slice of toast though.

    I didn’t see the Holy Virgin on that cabinet. It’s far easier to see Jesus on this dog’s ass.

    Or is that an Eskimo? Maybe that’s the Inuit Jesus.

    By contrast, cats are stone cold killers who do only WTF they feel like doing if you like it or don’t. My little kitty is on the alert for anything in her purview she might kill. She will actually chase a fruit fly around my apartment hoping for a chance to kill it.

    Yeah because when you come home from work, you don’t want your bud…

    Not sure about that Unseen…it seems like i have read a number of instances in which ancient peoples are thought to have been wiped out by disease. There is a theory that may have occurred with Neanderthal lacking immunity to diseases carried by Homo Sapiens out of Africa which is i suppose analogous to Europeans giving native a…

    There are ways we have actually DEvolved. My cat eats food off the floor, walks around in her litter box and then licks her paws, even licks her asshole and none of that makes her sick. She obviously has a far more effective immune system than we do. I suspect our neanderthal ancestors also had more effective immune systems.

    8 lives to go. My uncle Charlie didn’t care for cats. He used to say real men kick cats when the women aren’t looking. Then again Charlie didn’t care for much of anything. He was a muscle bound intimidating pro boxer with a crooked nose so no one really complained about his attitude to his face directly. There is a certain secto…

    Looks like that cat gets bit at around 00:18 if you step through the video. I did have a sweet calico cat that killed a foot long coral snake in our garage but suffered a fatal bite in the process. “Tuffy” was a hero to us.
