I think the desire to have sex and live out these fantasies drives a lot of them to marry prematurely. I've seen this happen.

This is just a theory of mine, but it makes sense, IMO.
I'll second the observations. I have a friend who was raised by very strict Christian parents, and I know had problems with porn (because he told me...talk about awkward). He found a girl that liked him, got married at 19 against the advice of our church's pastors (they had to get her grandpa to do the ceremony) and now he's mostly depressed.

Well the menstrual cycle is perfectly natural but I'm quite all right not taking any part in that.
So if these guys had such unreal expectations from porn, why did they get married to a non-model in the first place? (That, in the end, may be a cultural answer, rather than one of attraction)
At some point you have to decide what's "good enough" and settle for a few shortcomings. Fortunately for me I didn't have to settle.

This again.

Last time I brought up 1 Corinthians 7:9 I don't remember you having a good answer:

The implication is that an unmarried person simply isn't having sex, because that was the culture at the time. If you're actually interested in learning more about this, pick up Sex God by Rob Bell. If you're not, by all means continue arguing here.

No one said anything about taking part. Though i think some dutch ovens could help Jawbone's wife.

I don't really take any notice of Paul on matters of canoodling, since I reckon he was pretty much a complete whack job with such things. Repression will do that to a man.

You wanna be a virgin until you marry? Good on ya. If it feels right for you, then there ya go. But it don't feel right for me, it's not what I've been guided to.

If people are saying that's fat, it's a sad indictment of how unrealistic the body image for women has become.

Back in the day (we're talking late 80's metal scene), every chick would be way slimmer than The Lard. OK, so maybe one or two exceptions in a nightclub of 2,500 people but they were a statistically insignificant anomaly. What's happened since then is loads of fat enablers and fat advocacy groups have tainted the "realistic" female body image with a chubbier-than-needs-be template.

It's not "fat slapper" any more, it's "BBW". Thus the ridicule which would drive most to keep a trim figure no longer exists and it's all good - women can now shove all the cake they like into their faces and nobody bothers them except the folks who compile national obesity statistics.

So, IMO, it's not how "unrealistic" the body image ideal has become, but how much the "realistic" body image ideal has slipped into cake and chocolate land.

It's actually true dude. Why do you think they keep going on about rising obesity rates? They're rising rates, so folks are getting fatter. As folks get fatter, your perception of what's normal gets fatter too.

On the edge of being too slim. Needs more boobies ( ) and a tad more hips.

(On closer inspection, she looks like one of my ex girlfriends, although said girlfriend did indeed have more boobie and hips. And was a right goer).

Me either.


"It's good to be da king."

And I second the suggestion for reading Sex God by Rob Bell. I "read" the audiobook a few months ago. Definitely worth the time.

So what did reading Sex God do for you? Reinforce your already un-budgable position?

I'm not sure if this is good or bad - she's certainly not chopped liver. But pop star material? Dunno.

I'd like to see Madonna kiss Britney now.

Actually, due to some stuff I've gone through in the past year I was leaning more toward your side. But a combination of reading Sex God and A Return to Modesty by Wendy Shalit really did change the way I thought about a few things.

That this is mildly out of character for you, but I can never turn down a Seinfeld reference.

She does have a bit of an amateur internet pornstar look going there. Body a little out of shape, fake looking hair, overdone make-up, bad costume...

Edit: beat-up vagina...

Well, in that case I will just have to take your word for it: Your girlfriend is much better looking than Brittney Spears. I believe it.
