    This made me rewatch the Extra Life segment when Matt read 50 Shades of Grey as Sarge.

    As somebody who listens to this as a  podcast I do have to say that this was probably the worst episode for audio listeners. Many things were happening on screen and were never conveyed to audio listeners. The other podcasts just do this better. Even Off-Topic handles this better by apologizing to audio listeners whenever there is something that they can't explain by saying it. 


    I would love it if there was a bit more attention to that the show is both in audio and video format. The content of the episode was fine, just keep in mind that things like the introduction game are entirely pointless for podcast listeners, if nothing is said about who did what.

      My guy, Off Topic does that on purpose tho. They literally go out of their way to do shit so they can narrate it to the audio listeners. It's the literal epitome of facetiousness.

      Barbara has said herself this is a show, not a podcast. It's meant to be watched in video form.

    To answer the question, it was on a skype call with my SO at the time. Was kinda weird but it was really the first time that I felt ok with me. Never been exposed to anyone else after that short relationship though.

    I guess I must seem pretty vanilla. I lost my virginity to my ex. I haven't been with anyone since. For some of us there has to be a major connection there. I haven't found it in 5 years.

      Some people identify as demisexual, which to my understanding is needing a strong romantic/emotional connection before sexual attraction can be there. It's good to let your significant other know this if you have a feeling it will be a long-term relationship so they know what to expect, and so you know whether they'll actually respect that or not.

    okay. 

    1) Temeraire is a marvelous series, esp if you like dragons/politics/napoleon era wars.

    2) That a lively debate about fanfic popped up made my life.

    3) I would love to hear more about how Micas teacher figured out where the words were coming from and what the author said when her teacher told the author what happened.

    Still have a problem with the guys dressing up and going to the mid day 50 shades showing and booing. Literally the only people who you are annoying are middle aged moms. Like really, why go to a movie you know you aren't going to like, in which you are only going to disrupt the experience for people who do a lot with little thanks. Let them enjoy their cheap thrills.

    Mica has a problem with the relationship in 50 Shades of Grey, but is perfectly fine with the one in Twilight? They are essentially composed of the same abusive behaviours.

      Did she say she was fine with the relationship in Twilight? Did she even say anything what she thought about the books when she is an adult?

    As a grey-a queer male I could probably count the number of times on one hand that I have even cared to be naked in front of someone, but the first time would have to be my high school boyfriend after sneaking out to go see a movie with him.

    There's something so soothing and personal about a shower, even when alone.  So while I agree with Mica that there's mechanical intricacies of shower sex that may prove tricky for beginners, it seems to me like it has the kind of intimate and safe vibe you would want while exploring the sexual chemistry of a new pairing.

    • bigtipper FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      I've found that shower sex is not good for "sex" but for intimacy and foreplay.
