I can't confidently say that men who are part of an established group of friends have really figured themselves out yet. I've spoken before on the dynamics of friend groups, or tribes, and how they influence the propagation of toxic behavior, but my current thoughts extend that idea out even further. Even if it's not every guy and the friends they hang out with, the ones who are very clearly biased, homophobic, sexist, and those who harass others in the workplace and in public fall into this category very nearly 100% of the time.
It has been some time since I last wrote a review for a product, but I'm always happy for the opportunity. This time, I've made some new friends at Bathmate who have been kind enough to send me one of their most popular products, the Hydromax7! Designed on the foundation of safety and research, Bathmate has designed a line of penis pumps that are less dangerous, effective, and provide satisfying results. All this, and the only thing this product requires is water!
When we decided to have the conversation, I thought back to previous conversations and bits of advice I had learned during this time from friends who are also poly. We started by affirming that we love and care for each other more than anything, and that was not going to change.
It has been a tough choice, given that I'm already committed to unlearning a lot of the negative behaviors I grew into from youth, but I do think that something that continues to be a constant struggle is my predilection towards competition. In particular, feelings of envy and jealousy towards others.
Anyone who’s new to the world of chat hosting is going to get to a point where they need to learn a few tricks to be the best that they can be. The simple fact is that you have to be good at chatting if you expect to make a decent amount of money at it. If you want to be one of the highest earners then you really have to offer your audience something that they can’t get anywhere else. That one thing is always going to be your personality.
Should you find yourself reading this blog post, it should be very clear why. Because there is a stack of unfinished projects cluttering your desk, or filling up your notebooks. Because there are so many of them and some that have been sitting for months without any progress. There's simply so much to do, and chances are, the ideas keep coming faster than you can put them to paper. It is not just authors and bloggers who have this issue, but creatives of all types in all mediums run into this very same problem. An idea is formed one day, so they find the time and headspace to sit down and begin this new project. They get so far and stop to take a break before continuing. However, it's not long before a new idea pops into their head, and all of the sudden, it's all they can think about.
I was really on the fence over whether I should post at all regarding the issue of OnlyFans banning pornographic content. Still, a bit of delving convinced me that I should probably put some things together to help provide some perspective around why this is happening.
CW: ranting/info dump This isn't as much of a continuation of the previous version of this post as it is more of an update on all that has occurred. But it's also me just wanting to type out all of the things I have learned about myself and of others, based on recent experiences and decisions. Covid and quarantine has had me fucked for the past eighteen months it has been keeping us all prisoner, and sapped me of any creativity or productivity. But a lot has happened in the interrim that, while it seemed small or inconsequential, to talk about at the time; putting it together now is providing some interesting perspective I was inspired to put here. I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, but if you're interested in a trip of introspection, then please read on.
I'm actually pretty shocked by this myself! For a long time, I had told myself that I was going to do just fine with my writing alone. I don't consider myself Instagram-able, and I have too many bad experiences trying to put myself out there on YouTube. But I was content with having my words read and my thoughts in a place that I felt comfortable sharing it.
There can be times you want to grab someone's attention, focus it on you; Or, maybe just because it's fun. A distraction can disrupt someone's train of thought, trip them up, get them frustrated and wanting to take it out on you in the form of some desired punishments. What will you do to get the attention you crave?
