My wife told me one time that men are like floors. She said that if you lay them right the first time you can walk on them for years.

Tim, have I ever told you I love your wife?

I laid down the rules and told my wife that I come home if I want and when
I want and that I expect her to have dinner ready when I do come home.

She said OK, but that she expected to have sex at supper time, whether
I was home or not.
I wonder if you love my wife too?

Not being a real morning person, I vote for sex for supper too!

Alas, I may be cheap, but I am not that easy. Timmy has been sharing juicy tidbits about his wife for some time now. I have established a real connection with her. How dare you promote your wife so casually. (Have her send nekkid pics - then we'll talk, okay? :D )

I suppose Iʻm technically still married, but I tell jokes about my wife
from memory because weʻre happily on our own for the last few years.

I had stopped taking pictures after 30 years so sheʻll have to get someone
else to take them and send them directly to you.

Sheʻs cheap too, so you should get along (with Polaroids) and I trained
her to talk back. :roll:

Um, what was your question again? :D


Hello brauneyz,
I'm not sure there really was a clear question there. I want to hear a woman't honest perspective about this.

I jumped in and responded to the OP because I felt some empathy with him and am really happy that he found the experience. Then it progressed to the different perspectives that men and women have. There is far more than can be said on one or a dozen posts, but I just want to hear your perspective. I never found that when growing up and feel like I seldom hear an honest heartfelt opinion now.

I am wondering if the OP will come back and post again.

I agree. I was worthy enough for my wife to choose me. That's because of how awesome I am....

/flex

Actually, I'm pretty damned lucky.


Yep, and as I have said before, I believe your wife is as well. 8-) It sounds like you both made good choices to begin with, and continue to make good choices to keep it good.

Chachacha wrote:But to go back to the discussion of the first group of women: IMO, they're stupid - unless they really don't want a man unless he is their "perfect" man - then it's their right to choose, which includes their right to choose to be alone if Mr. Perfect doesn't appear. What I think we both agree on is that there are women who do not understand that they are choosing to be alone.


big tim wrote: I have a friend who is still single, a great guy, good looking, and laments that he hasn't ever been married or mates. The problem is that the women he goes after all turn him down.... and the women he goes after NOW (he's about 5 years older than me) are pretty much the same women he went after when he was in his 20s....

So, his "standard" means he's not being chosen by women that want a mate.

That means he's going to stay alone even though he hates it...


It's so obvious when it's not us. I'm trying to come to terms with the same thing myself but am not yet willing to give up one set of benefits for another ... nor am I yet willing to admit that I have to choose one over the other! :wink:

Chachacha wrote:...I have very little sympathy, if any, for people who want to pick and choose what they will and will not accept in a person AFTER he/she has chosen him/her. People are package deals and once you've chosen one, you accept him/her as he/she is; embracing and rejoicing in the qualities you love, and accepting the qualities that you don't love. If one finds one has made a choice he/she cannot live with or cannot remain faithful with, one should tell the person; work it out; or make another choice. "I have the right to go to a prostitute because my wife won't let me put it up her butt," or "I have the right to have an affair because my husband doesn't pay attention to me" are not acceptable to me.

I think I'm in love! :jester:

Chachacha wrote:And back to the subject of "tantric sexual healing", I know the power of touch, I know humans can "heal"each other through it (or feel as if they have :wink: - which can be the same thing) but, call me old-fashioned, my instincts tell me that the most powerful "tantric sexual healing" occurs between two people who love each other; and becomes more powerful the longer they are together and the more they have stayed together through .... of course, a little practice, and a book doesn't hurt! :wink:


brauneyz wrote:...But the OP, and subsequent conversation, has turned more to mind-blowing sex and intimacy. I am of the mind that the two are intricately linked, but I suppose others will disagree. The OP compared his experiences with run-of-the-mill prostitutes vs. this incredible experience with who someone cares on a deeper level about his well-being. Sure, she's still a prostitute because she accepted money and no doubt will never return if not paid for her services, but she had a vested interest in appealing to the many facets of his being. She intuitively knew she had to reach a deeper layer. That's what he responded too, I think. She held him while he cried. This was a whole lot more than a sexual release. It was acceptance.


big tim wrote:Bingo.

I've heard the same thing said about making a woman orgasm the first time. :D

big tim wrote:You are right in that what is most powerful isn't the act of ejecting your semen into a receptive (and conscious) female. It's the intimacy and bond that is created in the shared experience. That's why a healthy relationship includes sex as well as intimacy.


Interesting. It is just recently occurring to me that the reason men (when men do this) minimize the importance of sex as being nothing more than a physical need for release; and speak of separating their two heads, etc., is because they want to minimize the importance of sex on an emotional level; and I have come to suspect that for some men, the emotional impact of sexual intercourse is stronger than it is for some women.

I recall these two women approaching me at a mall parking lot. One had a camera. They asked me if I was a virgin. I had an SUV with screaming kids right near me so... being the jerk I am I said "yes". Well, apparently, they go and find men that are virgins that "fit a profile" and film some hot young girl having sex with him. I laughed and said "Sure, let me tell my kids I'll be a bit later, and you'll have to call my wife and ask her permission first.....". The girl got a bit pissed. "You said you were a virgin!" I replied "Lady, I'm next to my Suburban with kids yelling daddy at me ... if you're too dumb to connect the dots it's not my problem...". But once I got home I did some 'net searching and, waddya know, there really is such a beast and apparently I was "picked"... dunno why they'd peg me as a virgin... I definitely look like I've raided my share of nunneries...

Attention.
Communication.
Time.
Intimacy.
Openness.
Novelty.

Do that and you get some ACTION. It's really easy. Show her that there are no other women in the world who even come close to her. Wake up witht the intention of making that day the best in her life.

Doesn't sound that way to me! :shock:

Can't remember the set-up, but the punchline of a joke was:
Male: "Premature ejaculation? No such thing! And what's this about a premature ejaculation problem??? It's not a problem for me."

One must master self-control - or find a skilled practitioner to master it for him - to experience tantric sex, right? That's a good thing. :mrgreen:

Am I insensitive if I think it should be called "immature ejaculation"? If a man never bothered learning to hold his urine, would we call him a "premature urinator"? :twisted:

The person that posted this says it ended with a handjob. So, no sex. And some idiots say he visited a good prostitute. Also, a good prostitute is a completely different experience to what he described, an experience with a good prostitute is more like one would see 'acted out' in a porn video or like a person would have with their girlfriend on a good day. Tantra includes even includes claims of experiences of full body orgasm which is not a normal experience for men even with a good prostitute.

I have seen people having some strange experiences in tantra. Some of it may be legit, but some of it involves waving the hands over the person the person is wearing clothes, so wouldn't even feel the warmth, and yet reacts very strongly physically.. and that reminds me a lot of those fake martial arts where many people in the dojo believe in it and are susceptible to it but then when an outsider that isn't susceptible comes in then suddenly all the knocking people over without touching them doesn't work. Some of or a lot of tantra is about wiggling your fingers around manipulating "invisible" so-called energy fields. I think maybe if they blindfolded a person that reacts like that to a tantric person then walks out or waves their hands around randomly, it'd have the same effect. But i'm sure many other aspects of tantra may be legit. And certainly even the most ridiculous things seem to works for a number of people. But tantra does also have legit physical exercises that could have some effects.

Very true. Sex and love are not the same thing. You can have each one separately, and you can have them together.
