Jaycee, my hubby and I are currently in Vegas, too. I hope you have a great trip. My HT is that we will be meeting an old friend for brunch today who I haven't seen since he moved here a couple years ago. I used to give this elderly, disabled man rides to and from church, and eventually was his ride to and from divorce court. When he decided to move away from friends and family to pursue his heart's desire we all worried about him, but he is making it.

FB- our neighbors in the suite above our room at the hotel we are currently staying in here in Vegas decided to have a big party last night, starting around 11. I normally wouldn't care, but the sound of their music and guests' voices carried down into our room through the a/c vent. I was so tired from traveling that I was able to block it out for a while and sleep, but when the racket woke me up again at 3:50, I couldn't take it anymore. A call to hotel security was ultimately successful, and the party broke up by 4:38 a.m. On the bright side, I heard A LOT of newer music I had never heard before. In the right circumstances, this might have been a good thing. :-/

Years ago Mr. Scandle and I saw "O". Even as we were descending the stairs to exit, I would have been quite pleased to sit down to watch the show again immediately. It is absolutely not to be missed! We also have seen "Love," the Beatles tribute, and "Zumanity," the erotic Cirque show. Mr. Scandle wants to see Love again, but I would be more inclined to see the Michael Jackson show.

That happens here, too, SS, but there are also times during fall or winter storms when waves in the open waters can hit 20 feet. The lake is too small to actually have tides. It is my perception that the space between waves here is narrower than what is typically seen on the ocean, so may offer a unique challenge to surfers. We have seen kite surfers on the lake, soaring at least 30 feet above the water then returning to be launched by yet another wave. It was glorious to watch!

Something you surfers probably will be surprised by is that Sheboygan, WI, which is on the west coast of Lake Michigan, is officially the fresh water surfing capitol of the world. Just be sure to have your wetsuit handy since surface water temps normally don't warm up enough for swimming until July, and can change quickly and dramatically when it's rough. Average water temp for the lake year round is 39 degrees, but that includes the really deep (like 922 ft.) water. I am not a surfer, but have been told it is a unique challenge to surf these waves.

FORUMS > General Discussions > Women Talk > Too fast!!       07-11-2014 08:09 AM
Camzwife, we make a point of talking with the people we are playing with before we get started to let them know what I/we would like and find out what they want out of our time together. Since we are soft swap, it gives us an opportunity to explain our limits more fully. Often I like to start out with a little masturbation show so I am automatically setting the pace right from the start, and at times a gentle "No, just wait..." has been enough to return our playmates to their seats. If the people you are playing with don't get direction from you, then it will be a rare occasion indeed when they get it right the first time. Every person we have played with has wanted to know how I liked "X" and we have asked them the same questions since we are all engaged in the activity to achieve mutual pleasure.

HellaMuch, I'm not sure if that's a rhetorical question, but if you're actually looking for suggestions on how to make the wait time tolerable before you're ready to wax again, use leave-in hair conditioner on your pubes. At least they will be less stiff and uncomfortable to touch when you're playing.

Joy, you have gotten some really useful advice here. The only thing I have to add is in response to your husband's comment about how it might ruin your relationship since you didn't do this kind of stuff when you were younger. My husband and I didn't get into exploring this lifestyle fun until we were in our late 40's or early 50's. People continue to develop, mature and change over the years, hopefully in synch with their partners but sometimes not. I hope you both can be open to the possible changes in your relationship that excite you now, and if he is not, then perhaps sometime in the future he will be. Watching porn, reading erotic literature (like, perhaps, the sex stories on this website), and continuing to talk about your fantasies with your husband will all have a positive effect.

Angelmica, I think if your appearance hasn't changed much in the intervening years then it isn't that important. What I've seen people complain about here is when the pictures show a much younger or fitter person than the one who shows up for the date. As long as your photos are generally representational of what you look like now, I think you're fine. When I add pictures to our profile, I now add the date they were taken and try to arrange them chronologically, with the newest on top, so it isn't an issue. To answer your question, no, I do not think you have to remove the old ones. It is YOUR profile after all, and if you like your pictures, then you have the right to keep them there. Given that there are no limits on the number of pictures you can have on your profile, there is no reason to delete them and can actually be interesting for people to look at.

VA, I said something somewhat similar at a party we attended, though didn't say anything about us being white people. I just pointed out to the DJ that he should take a close look at the demographics and behavior of the party attendees - 90% were baby boomers who were sitting around trying to have a conversation over the noise of the unfamiliar (or disliked) music, unless the DJ played something we recognized. THEN people spilled out onto the dance floor and partied like it was 1979! LOL

Mmmm, I like your eyes and your smile, especially in the picture holding the baby crocodile. I've done the same in Florida, not far from Rooftop Resort, at a nature preserve that had an educational session about the critters. Sorry, I digress... Yes, the photo editing program on this website often doesn't work or save the changes you make. Save yourself some time and aggravation by doing the editing before uploading the picture.
Pictures
FORUMS > General Discussions > Women Talk > Pictures       07-07-2014 08:47 AM
Goldenroid, your pics are okay but IMO could be improved a bit. Be aware of what is around you before you take the shot. You have a few that were taken in a kitchen with what looks like a baby bottle in the dish drain, a newspaper folded up on the counter, and other debris that is distracting. I suggest you move all the crap out of the way and retake them. Also, consider getting a close-up picture of your smiling face while you have a special gleam in your eye that seems to say you think the person looking at the picture is very sexy. It is difficult to do either by yourself or having a friend help, but I've seen some very hot pictures that invite the viewer in. Another idea ~ if you enjoy wine, try posing with a half-full wine glass and a lit candle while you wear a crisp collared shirt. You don't have to be looking directly into the camera for these to work, and turning your head just a bit looks more casual and spontaneous. You have a nice physique but showing off the bare skin in every single picture gets a little boring. Show off your personality and/or interests, which I imagine are more diverse than the skin shots indicate.
Ladies, do you like surprises ?
FORUMS > General Discussions > Women Talk > Ladies, do you like surprises ?       07-06-2014 21:27 PM
Ur, it is an interesting idea. I've had professional massages that definitely didn't go that route and would have been upset if they did, and a couple times I had a professional massage that did turn more sexual, but that was at a lifestyle resort where everything was sexually charged already. There have also been a few LS hotel takeover parties we attended where the massage turned sexual, so I'm not totally unaware of the concept. ;-) Since I was already anticipating sexual touch with those certain massages, it definitely wasn't a big surprise. The situation you describe brings you in as an anonymous sexual partner, one the woman has not seen or spoken with in any meaningful way before. It wouldn't be for me, but I'm sure there are women who fantasize about that kind of scenario and would love it. Your profile pics show a pretty nice looking, muscular guy, so for that demographic you will likely be very successful. Presumably the husband/partner will be absolutely certain that this is what his wife craves. If he is wrong, it will make for a very uncomfortable time for you, and you'd best figure out how to make a hasty exit with all your parts and equipment in tow. I'm curious ~ will the other man only be invited to watch while you do your thing, will he be allowed to engage in a MFM with you and the woman, or will you be doing this while the other man is absent? In any case, good luck! I wish you well.
BBW and Self-Image
FORUMS > General Discussions > B.B.W. > BBW and Self-Image       07-06-2014 09:26 AM
Thank you, lovetowatch. I would say the same about you from the photos you attached to your profile. You are already a very lovely woman. Since I started this thread over 2 years ago, I've come to the realization that success in conquering our own doubts about how attractive we are to others involves nurturing our self-confidence and the belief that we are already sexy, beautiful people. Being able to take the focus off your imperfections, embracing the wonderful parts of you while engaging in attentive interactions with other people makes the difference. More than likely, the people you meet will have similar insecurities (am I too thin, too fat, too short, too tall, too light, too dark, too gray, too ugly, too pretty, genitally too small or too big, too hairy, too shaved, too old, too young, too shy, too bold, too buff, too soft, etc.) and will appreciate others who see past all of that negative self talk, willing to determine whether there is a sexual chemistry between you that has little to do with appearance. Of course, you will only be able to pull this off if you are willing to accept others' "imperfections," and there may be some things from the list that are absolutely non-negotiable. A positive attitude will go a very long way and will open many doors for you. For all of us, exercise and eating right are always good choices, but so is rejecting criticism. You are moving in a positive direction, with a foreseeable goal, where criticism can weigh you down and slow your momentum. Keep your chin up, be proud of what you are already doing to improve your health, and know that your self-confidence will attract others like bees to honey.

To answer the main question here, when I've posted something serious I have had sufficient on-topic replies to know I've been "heard." Being a sex-related site, seeing the banter among flirters doesn't bother me much, though if I were truly seeking advice for a problem, then it would be very annoying. When the topic is particularly serious, posters tend to stay appropriately on topic, doing their best to help the OP. We've seen this numerous times when someone posts about relationship issues with their spouse/s.o., for example. It is also true that subjects that are easily derailed are just as easily returned to their original theme.

Nifty, there are some word choice errors that need to be corrected now. "If a second date envelops...game on!" That should be "If a second date develops...game on!" (envelop means to surround) "Face pics must be legible" .... some other word than legible. Legible means readable handwriting or print. Perhaps clear would be a better word here. "We are a NO means NO," .... what would you think about adding, playfully, that you are also a YES means YES couple? "We prefer afternoon/ early evening meets. times." Too many periods here. The rest of that paragraph has a few punctuation or grammar errors, but it's no big deal.
WTF
FORUMS > General Discussions > Open Forum > WTF       06-27-2014 08:14 AM
This happens more often than most of us know. In December, friends of mine allowed a homeless woman who was living in her car with her dog to move into their home "temporarily," until she found a job - which was seasonal sales work, so she now has no income again. As my friends tried to find another place for her to live (along with another job), she rejected each and every offer for one reason or another, though there was no good reason to do so. She is mentally ill (surprise, surprise) and has bizarre phobias about so many things in life. I'm not as much of a compassionate person/doormat as my friends and would have booted her out the door as soon as the weather warmed up, despite her threats that she will kill herself if they do so. She has found the perfect solution to her problems - they house and feed her, and have minimal requirements for her contribution to the household.

Yondude, I took another look at your profile and noticed a few changes, especially those recommended by Mrs. Sav. Something I suggested earlier to correct a sentence was missed or ignored, but I won't bore you by repeating it here. No doubt you can decide what to do with it. A couple new points, though: it is ironic that, after you take time to talk about proper grammar and punctuation, you made the same mistake we all do from time to time. ;-) The phrase "Remember, before passing judgement on a person or a practice, I ask that you please take a long hard look in a mirror." seems to not fit in that section, or perhaps anywhere at all in your profile.

EAZYGOINGCPL, I am joining this party a bit late so didn't get to read the profile you originally were asking for help revising. As a means of encouraging you to follow through on the advice already given, include me as being in agreement with the 2 posters who commented ahead of me. The pictures absolutely have to be replaced with ones that show you enjoying the moment rather than looking bored - which translates to "boring" for someone taking a quick glance at your profile. You know the old saying about having only one chance to make a first impression, right? It is worth keeping that in mind as you decide what to include. The cliches mentioned that you've seen in other profiles ought to be avoided, as suggested. Perhaps finding a humorous way to say the same thing, if you feel the essence of the statement needs to be included, would be better. Good luck!

Yondude, you have nice pics, though if you could add to the collection by taking new ones in a different venue, that would be an improvement. It looks like the current public set was taken at the gym. Do you have any that show you engaged in activities you enjoy, even those that have nothing to do with sex? Unlike the previous responder, I am not put off by anything in your profile. If you have difficulty making connections in the future, then you may wish to revise things by taking out the grammar instructions. If it hasn't been a problem yet, leave it in. You asked for small stuff, so here goes... The structure of this sentence from your profile needs to be edited. Read this aloud, and you'll see the error: "I truly value fitness and have always been attracted to those who keep try to keep active and fit.".... In the Description section, you wrote "Now more than ever with my situation." That is a phrase, not a sentence, and I think you meant for it to be part of the previous sentence... In point #5 you should say "an issue" not "a issue." Good luck in your adventures!

We have a tankless water heater in one part of our house that doesn't get used very much. The first one had to be replaced after only a few years, and the professional plumber who installed the new one said none of these water heaters lasts very long, even the more expensive ones. In his opinion, money was not saved by purchasing and installing the tankless water heater (which are expensive) compared to having an old standard and keeping the water heated constantly. We still have the tankless heater and are hoping to prove the plumber wrong with the new version.

HT - Today Mr. Scandle and I are celebrating our 33rd wedding anniversary. We'll be having dinner tonight at our favorite restaurant, an excellent little place that features authentic Italian dishes, and tomorrow our favorite LS couple will be here to extend the celebration. The weather predicted for our town is sunny and 68, which may allow some fantasy fulfillment to take place.
I think we need some help and advice.

Good for you guys, cruiseaholics! I don't know what other advice to give you to make the correspondence more successful, other than perhaps less is more? Some people here don't bother trying to find playmates that way, relying primarily on meeting people at LS venues such as hotel takeovers, meet n greets, resorts, etc., and sometimes interest develops through exchanges in the Forums. I've never used the Hot Dates feature, so can't comment about it.

I agree that your profile looks fine, so now you should seriously consider what you are writing when you send emails. As other threads in the forums have mentioned, people you contact want to know that you actually read their profile and the generic "I love your profile or pics and think we would be a good match" or worse, "Take a look at my profile and write back if you're interested" simply doesn't work with most people. Some people put instructions in the body of their profile, and all who follow the instructions get to the next step - a reply, and perhaps a meeting. If the email you send out indicates you have put some effort into the process AND is interesting or humorous, without being too long, then you'll have a better chance of moving forward. Good luck!

There is always the possibility that someone who contacts any of us and is the first to provide face pics may be a relative, coworker or friend. Rejecting someone doesn't always mean they are too ugly, too fat or too old, though that is the norm. For us, after meeting a potential playmate couple for dinner and a different one for lunch, we had to tell them that though we thought they were nice people, we didn't feel the attraction was there. It was uncomfortable to say but better than stringing them along.
Outdoor sex at home

We live in a fairly rural area but still do have neighbors. When conditions are right (warm day, nobody else but me and my husband around), I have enjoyed setting up (and using) an area on our deck to masturbate while Mr. S watches. We typically finish up together inside, in our bedroom. This weekend our favorite LS couple will be visiting. They are usually eager to try all our creative ideas, so maybe we can enlarge this masturbation show to a foursome!

toomuchfun, my comment was meant only as a criticism of the one proposed activity, that of engaging in oral sex (giving or receiving) with random party attendees who I probably would not have met previously. If that's what appeals to you, go for it. My point was only that it was not something I would do. To those considering whether or not to attend a LS hotel takeover, I've been to several of them and never saw or heard of that happening as a planned activity. Other games were played (naked Twister was fun, lap dancing for birthday celebrants was great, contests to see who could remove bras the fastest when blindfolded and using only one hand was interesting, etc.), there was always a DJ for dancing in the common area. The best party set up we ever attended had a very large group room with curtained partitions for different sexual activities like a Sybian, queening chair, massage table, sex swing, bed, etc. I loved the sexual tension of playing with our friends in these different areas, hearing (and being heard) sex being enjoyed, and having the flexibility of keeping it kind of private or fully opening the curtains for all to watch.

I feel the same way, Sed. That tactic might work at a private party where I already knew everyone, but having a complete stranger try to eat me would definitely change the atmosphere, and not in a good way.

nandeplayful, first and foremost, welcome to the Forums! It's always nice to have another interesting and coherent writer among us. ;-) I think your profile looks great right now, though there are a few spelling errors. These are simple things, like using your when you're is correct, but I'm certain you can find them easily if you so wish. The sense I get from your profile is that you are a happy and secure couple, intelligent and accepting of others. I wish you all the best.

I'm happy for you and your family, Gina! My HT is I am almost done getting my costume together for a murder mystery dinner party tonight. My character is Miss Kansas City Tiara Diamond from the 1950s. With a name that sounds like a porn star's, I suppose I could have bought a short dress that created mega cleavage, but since it is a church function, chose something more modest.

S_, when you're in the Dells I would suggest taking one or more of the boat tours. It is well worth the time to get away from waterpark mania and reconnect with nature, if that is something you like. To answer your question, when we had young kids we relied on grandparents to take them so we could get away, whether for an evening or several days.

njny, I don't know how big the insect was that you saw, but if it was really huge in comparison to an average mosquito, it might have been a crane fly (a.k.a. mosquito hawk). They don't cause any harm as adults because they can't bite and they don't sting, and before they mature they eat plant matter, not living creatures. Wiki had some good info if you want to read more. :-)
should women shave there pussy hair
FORUMS > General Discussions > Men Talk > should women shave there pussy hair       06-04-2014 14:46 PM
Dumdave, there are many wrong ways to shave. Somewhere in the forums it was spelled out, but I'll try give you the basics as I remember and apply them: 1. If the person getting shaved has the time, soak the hairy area in a warm bath or hot tub before shaving. Otherwise, a hot shower works. Wash the area first, then shave. 2. For best results, use a brand new razor with multiple blades. (A side tip - to extend the life of the blades, rinse them well and dry them before storing.) 3. Apply either shaving gel or hair conditioner on the hair. Shaving gel works better than shaving cream to soften the hair. 4. Always, and I mean ALWAYS shave in the direction of the hair growth. You may need to pull the skin taught while you shave, but do NOT go against the normal growth pattern. If you do, you will end up with ingrown hair and pimples. Trust me on this. ;-) 5. It might be advisable to repeat the shaving process before drying off. This will get more of the hair that you might have missed the first time. 6. When done shaving, wash the area with soap or shower gel. 7. For best results, shave every time you bathe or shower. If you make it routine, you will always be ready for fun! 8. Avoid going in a pool or hot tub for several hours after shaving since the pores are still open and can become slightly infected. Good luck!

Carrie, I'm sure it depends on the school district. The different districts I and Mr. Scandle lived in while growing up did provided many of the instruments, though not all. The bigger instruments (string bass, tuba, bassoon, and the like) were usually owned by the school.

We were nudists before we became swingers and have encountered the requirement that purely nudist resorts have regarding no touching. During one visit to Mira Vista in Tucson during the monsoon season, while enjoying the clothing-forbidden pool a thunderstorm rolled in. Waiting under the permanent canopy for the storm to pass, the temp dropped from 105 to 70 or so within a few minutes, and the wind was blowing so hard that we all received a light mist from the rain. I put on my light robe, then asked Mr. Scandle to hold me to help me warm up, and someone chastised us for it. Nothing sexual was going on, I swear, so I didn't break the hug but offered to share his warmth. ;-) They didn't take me up on the offer, but they backed off.

Kibbles, regarding your son's instrument of choice - would it be possible for you to rent one to keep at your home that he could practice on, and then use the school's instrument only at school or other functions where they transport it? I only played a very transportable instrument back in the day, so I have no idea how those with gargantuan instruments cope!
