Here's a copy of something that I just posted in the "About This Board" topics...Some things to remember when participating on this board:
This is an adult-oriented website. That does not mean that we're a porn site, it just means that we do not shun any
adult subjects -- and that includes nudity and normal, healthy adult sex. Personally, I consider nudity and healthy sexual activity to be normal, necessary and psychologically empowering aspects of adult life. An open and joyful acceptance of human sexuality is a fortifying and satisfying way to live your life, and such attitudes lead to being well-balanced in ALL aspects of your existence. If you disagree, or if the human body and our natural sexual behaviors make you feel embarrassed, squeemish or uncomfortable, then this is not the website for you to be participating in.
With the above in mind, I want everyone to know that I do not pull any punches around here, nor do I make any special allowances for sexually repressed and/or sexually immature and childish individuals. If you wish to stay on my good side, then I expect you to respect my uninhibited and hedonistic attitudes and lifestyle. I know in my heart that I am the healthy one here, regardless of what anyone else may think. When it comes to matters of human sexuality, let it be known that inhibitions, embarrassment, repression, the belief that parts of your body or your mind are "dirty," or anything else of that nature is a clear sign that someone is MENTALLY UNHEALTHY and BRAINWASHED BY A REPRESSIVE SOCIETY. I will not support those attitudes and if you suffer from any of those ilnesses of the mind and spirit, then please either (1)
keep your mouth shut and just accept that it is YOUR problem, or (2)
leave this website immediately and do not return.
Enjoy your lives. Enjoy your bodies and enjoy liberating your minds and freeing yourselves from sexual repression, once and for all. You only get ONE life, people. There are no naked virgins waiting for you in Heaven. You will not be rewarded by "god" for shunning and feeling embarrassed by his most beautiful creation: the human body, in all of its naked and natural glory. Remember: in Genesis, it says that the lord got ANGRY when Adam and Eve covered themselves with fig leves. He did NOT tell them that embarrassment and shame were good things -- he said they were EVIL things. So, by shunning your own bodies, you are shunning your own god.
PS -- I happen to be a skeptical agnostic. I only used the religious argument to make it clear that no matter what you may or ay not believe, you have no excuses for treating nudity and sexuality as being "dirty" or feeling that our naturl selves need to remain hidden from view. So when you browse this website and these forums, you are going to be seeing quite a bit of nudity. If that bothers you for some imbalanced and sick reason -- then hey, there's the door. Use it, because I will never, ever change my views about these topics and thus, this board will reflect my views for as long as it remains on the web.
For those of you who have absolutely no problems with any of the above, then guess what..? You have arrived in the right place. Feel free to openly express yourselves, but also keep in mind that by doing so, you will be inviting comments and reactions from other adults. For example, if you are gay, and someone says "Gay peopel kind of disgust e sometimes," then you will simply have to accept and live with the fact that most human beings -- a full 96 percent of us on this planet -- are not gay and we will probably never accept nor relate to your chosen lifestyle. Basically, this is a heterosexual website -- albeit one that is very tolerant of non-heterosexuals. That does not mean, however, that we CATER to non-heterosexuals... so if that makes you feel uncomfortable, then you will simply have to live with it, or else go find another site that better reflects your own lifestyle choices.
Lastly, I have a tendency to freely express my rather ultra-left-wing political views on this board. Don't worry -- I don't expect nor require that you agree with my politics. I might debate with you -- I might even yell at you if we get into a heated argument -- but that does NOT mean that I do not LIKE you. I get into shouting matches with my own fiancee sometimes, too... but I still love her with all of my heart and I would jump in front of a moving bus to save her from harm. A part of being an adult is being able to realize that just because you hate what someone has said, that DOES NOT MEAN THAT YOU NEED TO HATE THE PERSON WHO SAID IT. Leave that kind of childish, over-reactionary mock outrage
to the kiddie boards, please. Over here, we can disagree sometimes -- and still be friends. If that is not posssible for you to do, then you are -- so far as I am concerned -- still a child.
Try to be a humanist. It's a great attitude, especially in a world that has become so dehumanized as of late.
