I seem to think you can now get it from the chemist, but you may have to talk
to the chemist first but no idea on the cost.
It's sort of flattering that he knew I wouldn't take the piss out of him when he phoned me I suppose, on the plus side, although I'm not sure I could phone a mate and essentially say "Alright bud? .. I can't get a hard on. Can you help me please?" LOL .. good luck to him/them and everything but I've got other stuff to worry about first.

Now if one of my mates phoned me and asked the same question I would think the bastard thinks I know the answer as I can’t get it up as well. You must have a better class of mates

Unfortunately the ones I've got are a bit crap and the air leaks back in after a short time.

Usually they expand to fill the small space you got them into, becoming wedged and frustratingly hard to retrieve. Or is that just mine?

The talk about death by autoerotic asphyxiation reminds me of the death of actor Albert Dekker. His more elaborate version involved having hypodermics - one filled with uppers, the other with downers - strapped to his arms so he could fine-tune his erotic voyage. Apparently he zigged when he should have zagged. More colorful details on his Wikipedia page.

Here's a video where Hollywood Historian Scott Michaels pays a visit to the apartment where Dekker died, surprising the current tenant (at the time) with the gruesome history of what happened in her bathroom.

He said the needles were in his buttocks, which is not how I heard it. Anyone out there have the straight dope on this?

Pardon the pun.

Here's a sympathetic view from Jewish mysticism:

As an introduction we shall mention the ideas that in Jewish esoterism and, above all, in Hasidism lead us into this sphere. In the Zohar (1,55b) we read, “The Holy One, may He be blessed, does not choose to dwell where the male and female are not united.” A saying in the Talmud is “Three things have in themselves something of the beyond; the sun, the Sabbath, and sexual union.”17 Again, we find in the Zohar (III, 81a):The King [God] seeks only that which corresponds to him. Therefore the Holy One, may He be blessed, dwells in him who (like Him) is one. When man, in perfect holiness, realizes the One, He is in that one. And when is it that man is called one? When man and woman are joined together sexually. . . . Come and see! At the point at which a human being as male and female is united, taking care that his thoughts are holy, he is perfect and stainless and is called one. Man should therefore act so that woman is glad at that moment and has one single wish together with him, and both of them united should bring their mind to that thing. For thus has it been taught, “He who has not taken a woman is as if he were only a half’ (Jebamoth, 83). If, however, man and woman are united and become one, body and soul, then the human being is called one, and the Holy One, may He be blessed, takes up his dwelling in this one and generates for him a holy spirit.18

This is from an otherwise bland intellectual book by Julius Evola:

The frequency with which men send unsolicited “dick-pics” to women suggests an astonishing cluelessness about female sexuality. https://sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S109051382300003X

One commenter says that aiming for the 17% who like it might still be a rational tactic :cool: I'm not knowledgeable enough to check that.

When some chancer sent Mary Beard one she tracked his mother down and threatened to tell her about it. Abject pleading and apologies were offered.

Florida man strikes again :)

Florida man owns largest ch**d p**n collection ever seen by deputies — faces 1,100 charges

When Florida deputies arrested Jonathan Hernandez for allegedly possessing ch**d p**n, they were expecting to find more. But what authorities uncovered was jaw-dropping — even for them.

“At that time, we told you the investigation was just getting started and there would likely be more charges,” the Highlands County Sheriff’s Office posted via Facebook. “What we should have said was there would likely be A LOT more charges — like more than anyone in our county ... ever.”

Hernandez now faces more than 1,180 counts of ch**d p**nography and four counts of b***iality images. The 23-year-old is being held on a $2.4 million bond; deputies note he has enough charges to possibly see a life sentence.

Customer: I need some Viagra. Can I get it over the counter?
Chemist: Yes, if you take two!

In 1634, a certain Thomas Cromwell (no relation to the imminent Lord Protector) wrote to a friend about Lucy:

for all my Ladÿ Carlÿle be the killinge beauty of the worlde, yet I will see her when I come vp. It will cost me too [i.e. two] women, the thought of her and my wife gets somthinge by such thou thoughts nightly: wherein I committ I doubt Adultery: satisfy my consÿence I praÿ in that point; And as for my desir, I will repaire to Sam Turnor [that is, to Samuel Turner, a physician], or Sir John Sauage [that is, in all likelihood, to a minister].25

Thomas was so aroused by the simple thought of Lady Carlisle that he expected to need to employ the services of not one but two prostitutes in order to quench his desire, while suggesting that he regularly used the thought of Lucy to stimulate him into sex with his wife.

It seems that a lot of modern mating/dating/alpha-beta-male theory is based on non-replicable or dubious research.
A long and interesting Twitter thread:

Some contrarian conclusions from this:
  • In other words, that only a small minority of women (because women in general score low in sociosexuality) really pursue short term mating strategies. Most lean away from short term mating.
  • The role of testosterone in dating and sexual outcomes - very small.
  • physical attractiveness doesn't consistently predict more mating success.
  • Women do not view promiscuous men as more desirable.
  • Waist-to-hip ratios don't seem to signal actual fertility

For example, this theory has been disproved now. It is a bit disgusting so, don't read at breakfast:

I would think that much research into human sexuality is flawed. Though finding out how much is unreliable is also unreliable.

Most research, to my understanding (which is little) relies on self reporting. This obviously is flawed simply because we are human and lie for many reasons eg. appearances, misunderstandings, cultural expectations, peer pressure etc.

I think this term's quite nice. Sapiosexual ... when you're attracted to someone just because they're brainy ..

https://www.verywellmind.com/what-does-it-mean-to-be-sapiosexual-5190425

Ah that might be me! I once told my mother I could never get involved with someone who was slow and slightly dim witted. She seemed to think it was a bit of a ridiculous and shallow position to take (although I doubt she'd entertain anyone who wasn't intelligent either). Really though, you make judgements on many aspects of a person, it's totally natural imo. I love chatting with people who have a 'good mind' so to speak.

All that said, I won't be sharing this with others. 1) I'm so tired of seeing similar labels, and 2) It sounds like you're someone who may be attracted to early man or the 'missing link'.

There was an episode of Seinfeld in which Jerry was a bit startled when his girlfriend started to walk around his apartment naked. His reaction was to do the same, which drove her away. When he asked his friend Elaine to explain this, she said female nudity is sensuous, while the male body is utilitarian and therefore not always attractive in the nude.

I was describing the episode to a woman I was seeing at the time - she hadn't seen it - when she interrupted before I got to Elaine's analysis to say "Of course - the male body is utilitarian."

Found this interesting rationalist website, and as always my attention was pulled to the usual subjects, being the toddler that I am :)

Does watching pornography cause erectile dysfunction?
Answer >>> the meagre available evidence suggests NO (this surprised me, because it's widely reported that it does)
https://stuartritchie.substack.com/p/erectile

Are homophobes secretly homosexual?
Result >>> lots of anecdotes, but no statistically replicated research
https://stuartritchie.substack.com/p/are-homophobes-secretly-homosexual

Why is everyone suddenly talking about tanning their testicles?
Result >>>
There is evidence for that testosterone decline. It’s not just that populations are ageing and testosterone gets lower with age within individual people: studies that look at each successive generation’s testosterone levels tend to find them getting lower and lower.
There is NO evidence tha UV light increases testosterone levels.
https://stuartritchie.substack.com/p/testosterone

So now you're scientifically up to date!

And this one is just weird - but nice too!
There was no defending that appalling "autoethnography" paper on masturbation. But a lot of academics defended it anyway
