OK you're stuck in a prison cell for a full year. For some reason you get to choose a perk. You can't have both. What is it gonna be?

I chose internet, on the assumption that the woman in question is the same every day.

A different perfect-10 woman every day? I'd rob a bank just to get sent to prison for that perk.

Can the woman break me out of prison? Can she be the captain of a ragtag group of renegades who go about rescuing people wrongly imprisoned for white collar crimes? Can she avenge the loss of my 401k and pension? Can she make my former bosses look like raging maniacs in front of upper management at the company picnic?

I would decide against the woman, because you made her 100 % obedient. How boring is that?

Word. If she's just going to be a flesh equivalent of an internet porn fantasy, you might as well opt for the real thing and get all the other perks of online access with it.

The four people who chose woman need to chime in.

You're in prison. Prison IS boring (from what I've read).

I'd still opt for the woman, and not just for the internet porn fantasy stuff. Perfect-10 would mean intelligent (like lets talk Homer or Hawking), able to sing, expert masseuse, trainer, yoga guru, and of course comedienne.

One year wouldn't be long enough.

Depends on the woman. Do I get to choose?

Edit: Ah, I see that I do get to choose. I'd choose "woman", specifically my wife Kim. (No drugs necessary.) As long as she's free to come and go as she pleases and isn't stuck in there with me all the time.

Um, I'm pretty sure that's not what "perfect 10" means.

No, I love my wife, and philandering would hurt me as much as her. I've likely had more opportunities to cheat than most, and I was even offered a free "pass" once (long story), but what it comes down to is; I'm the only person I have to live with for the rest of my life, and I enjoy not feeling shame or guilt when I look in the mirror. My integrity is worth more to me than sex with an 18 y/o underwear model.

Besides, just because a chick is drop-dead gorgeous, doesn't mean she can ball. That's the voice of experience, there.

I wouldn't get too hung up about the sex. Even if you're at it twice a day, and lets face it most of us aren't 18 anymore, that still leaves many hours of the day to fill. That's when you need somebody interesting who cares about you.

I'm with Shaddim, I'd choose my wife. I can't think about anybody who I'd rather spend time with. Wild oats are fun for a while, but I'm done.

Can we compromise?

What about a solid 8, but she has a bunch of pictures of cats with funny captions on them.

My sig is 1 pixel too big.

If you put the pictures in the right places, you only need a 6.

Likely so, but she's okay with it. Hetero sex has always been more of a take it or leave it proposition with her, anyway.

Out of curiosity, isn't it problematic that apparently you have a favorite (the one you chose for company in your prison cell scenario)?

You have that backwards, she has a favorite. We have a great sex life, don't get me wrong, but men aren't her first choice.

No, but that's their choice. It's not my place to enforce such a rule.

"Gives" them? Really? I made a joke of sneaking a pack into an overnight bag, but that's it.

Isn't a good portion of what defines a marriage as "open" is enforcement of such rules?

Ours isn't open, as I said. However, if that's what either of them wants, that's their decision (which could have repercussions, like anything else in life).

Having a stable relationship comprised of three partners instead of two may be rare, but I don't see how that substantially changes the concept of being faithful (towards people inside the relationship, of course).
