First Order of Business :-)

The first order of business... 9/10ET tonight on CBS: Victoria Secret Fashion show. And for those of you in NZ: www.victoriasecret.com

Now like certain other O'ist forums that shall remain nameless it is my fervent hope that this site should encourage activism where possible.

Second order of business: If technology can come up with quick release mechanisms for parachutes, bicycle wheels and beer bottle tops surely they can do better when it comes to bras.

I urge every member of SOLO thrust to lobby lingerie-makers to modify the clasps they install on bras. The ideal is to have a mechanism that releases when the first few bars of a particular tune whistled (just like James Bond does when he whistles "Rule Britannia" to his exploding key chain.)

The factory default setting should be the standard wolf-whistle. Altering this default setting should be made as complex as possible so as to encourage the female of the species to become familiar with complex electronic devices.

All those in favour say Aye!

[Just thought I'd be the first to set the tone of the conversation on this forum. If you'll excuse me I'm off to find a fallout shelter to cower in :-)]

I can't do it one-handed yet.

But I can do it with my arms around my wife while passionately snogging her.

Nice.

Nice. I doubt if my girl minds. She loves the jokes and the advice column.

It's not that hard

I think many guys make the mistake of pulling on the hooks while holding on to the side with the rings. It's the opposite really. First pull the whole works about a half inch from her skin, then hold the part with the hooks still and unfasten the side with the rings. In no time you'll be able to do it no problem. Bonus points if you can do it with only one hand or just your teeth.

David: "Question is... if we may hesitate to admire a fine work of art, pause to soak up a magnificent piece of music or cheer a great sporting performance, why not also admire a fine, exceptional woman?"

Why not, indeed.

In the PC world it's not only look but don't touch, it's look but don't look!

Women present themselves well for a reason. They want to look attractive even when they aren't trying to "attract" a man. But they do want to be noticed. Nes pas? Well, *notice* them! Take a good look. A good, loooong look. In fact, if you're particularly impressed, go over and tell her she looks nice. Just don't drool when you do it Smiling

Of Epistemology and Mediterranean "Glances"

JulianP's picture

"To form concepts of the consciousness, one must isolate the action from the content of a given state of consciousness, by a process of abstraction. Just as, extrospectively, man can abstract attributes from entities--so, introspectively, he can abstract the actions of his consciousness from its contents, and observe the differences among these various actions.

"For instance... , when a man sees a woman walking down the street, the action of his consciousness is perception; when he notes that she is beautiful, the action of his consciousness is evaluation; when he experiences an inner state of pleasure and approval, of admiration, the action of his consciousness is emotion; when he stops to watch her and draws conclusions, from the evidence, about her character, age, social position, etc., the action of his consciousness is thought; when, later, he recalls the incident, the action of his consciousness is reminiscence; when he projects that her appearance would be improved if her hair were blond rather than brown, and her dress were blue rather than red, the action of his consciousness is imagination.

"He can also observe the similarities among the actions of his consciousness on various occasions, by observing the fact that these same actions--in different sequences, combinations and degrees--are, have been or can be applicable to other objects..."

-- Ayn Rand, Introduction to Objectivist Epistemology

I happen to have a wonderful wife who knows she's the most gorgeous woman in the world to me, so she doesn't mind me reading Playboy or heading up SOLO Thrust.

Jody Gomez's picture

I've been thinking of ways to protect the privacy of posters here. I've tossed around the idea of making it an invitation only group, where we limit it to the 'regulars', tossed around the idea of seeing if postings can be done anonymously for this section...any ideas anyone has are welcome.

You'll need a den

stormyeyes's picture

And you'll need to lock your lady out when viewing SOLO Thrust. Chances are that if you have a lady that suggests that you subscribe to Playboy, she'll probably be OK with SOLO Thrust.

Smell...taste...touch. Savor.

Well said Jody!

Hey, is there a way that girlfriends, partners, significant others could be automatically blocked from viewing SOLO Thrust...?

Would hate the little matter of concern for relationships to stifle freedom of expression..

Mmm, I would like to share "The Hitchhiker" technique, but I'm afraid knowledge like that in the wrong hands could be dangerous...

I'm watching it now..

I'm all for that mediterranean custom. If it is only sight, then savor it. If she speaks, savor that. Smell...taste...touch. Savor.

The first step is not to

stormyeyes's picture

The first step is not to think of taking a polite glance at a woman with a well-rounded arse or a nice set of legs as stealing, but as taking your rightful due. You have a right to look, especially if a woman is putting herself on display by wearing something revealing.

In other words, ladies: don't show me your tits and expect me to avert my eyes.

The rub as I see it is in

Robert's picture

The rub as I see it is in one's personal definition of "exceptional women."

My definition is so broad that were I to "pause to soak in" every lady who turns my eye I'd be for ever standing still - especially in my current place of employment.

Damn it's hard being a filthy old man in a University - but hell, someone's got to do it Smiling

Mediterranean "Glances"

David Bertelsen's picture

Dear Fellow Thrusters

I live in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, and as the years have worn on I've become slowly accustomed (not to mention enamoured) of a certain local tradition.

A sexy woman walks down 5th Avenue, New York. Every man who passes furtively steals a glance. As much of the beautiful figure he can catch without raising attention, and as little as his sexual animalistic instincts can possibly constrain him to.

A sexy woman walks down main street Palma (or Milan, Athens or Lisbon). Every man (real man) who passes stops. Looks as she walks past. Maybe whistles. STANDS, STARING for about 20 seconds as she moves into the distance. Totally and utterly without pretence. Breathing in the sheer excitement of a passing sensational wonder.

Question is... if we may hesitate to admire a fine work of art, pause to soak up a magnificent piece of music or cheer a great sporting performance, why not also admire a fine, exceptional woman?

Hey! I don't want to hear the standard contra-arguments (of which I am oh TOO aware!). We are in SOLO THRUST! We can say these things!

May I acquire this Mediterranean custom or am I forever condemned to stealing polite glances?

Thanks, Jody Shocked

To be honest, I'm absolutely giddy that there are still men out there who're not afraid to behave like men.    I had thought that the PC, Metrosexual pandemic had all but eradicated the Y chromosome, or at least weakened it to the point of obsolescence.  Never been happier to be wrong! Shocked)

 

Y'all have fun, boys!  (I'll peek in from time to time, though ;o) )

Anyway, the point is that if you ladies stay away, you've only got yourselves to blame for any disappointments!

It's Jody's job to prevent this forum from turning into a purile locker-room... Onya Jody for stepping up to take this one on!

"but it is also to be a place of ideas like you have mentioned."

Ashley's post on SOLOHQ about circumcision is an instructive example. It led to a useful and enlightening debate. But it must have required a hell of a lot of guts to assert her conclusions about circumcision and the way in which she arrived at them [Tip's hat in Ashley direction.]

Often it wouldn't be the ideas posted here that were embarrassing, but the lingering questions about "how did he or she find that one out." Everybody harbours such curiosity - but this internet world is infested with people who will act on it for no good reason. And some posters might feel like speaking out in here might not only allow themselves to be smeared, but their partners too.

For some, sex is an intensely personal experience between two people and talking about an experience you had betrays a confidence:

"A gentleman never tells..." Which is a pity, because sometime in the 160,000 years that homo sapiens have been having sex, some have actually figured out how to do it properly. Unfortunately the culture culture tends to frown upon anyone who shares such secrets.

Summer-
You can obviously take the heat, so you are welcome here anytime. Join in our banter...as a charter female member, we won't make you submit the certain photo's that will be required from here on out. Eye
At least not until your 30-day trial membership expires.

Hmmm... I appear to have stepped into the men's room without realizing...  Backing out quietly...  ;o)

Sounds like a good idea to

Jody Gomez's picture

Sounds like a good idea to me. One thing I intend to post on the front page of this group is that although it is intended for everything y-chromosome, it is not intended to be a repository for XXX. In an appropriate context, yes, and I fully expect to celebrate the physical beauty of women here, but it is also to be a place of ideas like you have mentioned.

Semi-serious now

Robert's picture

I know I started this with my tongue firmly in cheek but Summer has raised a interesting point:

"...electronic device to enhance mens'... er... "longevity"

If SOLO Thrust is to be anything other than a XXX adjunct to the banter forums (certainly that should be one of it's goals) I believe that people should be allowed to post certain topics under a pseudonym.

For instance, Summer quite rightly points to one of the deficiencies in male physiology, namely weak plumbing. There are ways to eleviate that problem that aren't widely known; several of them are mentioned in books that you wouldn't necessarily want on your library card records.

People who have acquired useful knowledge of a sexual nature may be not be willing to share it if their full name and visage is going to appear, for google to find, for all eternity. This isn't an ideal world and some people need to maintain a certain degree of respectability in public forums to remain employable...

I think that some facility to allow a poster's profile to be hidden from the public (but known to the Administrators of this forum - who will moderate the posts to filter out the idiots) would allow some useful exchange of information - to put it diplomatically.

What say the rest of you?

If for nothing else, having a working how-to sex guide on SOLO Passion would raise Reggie Phirehammer's blood pressure to the point he might physically explode - and that can only be a good thing for the planet.

"...should just teach guys to master simple hook & eye fasteners."

Never happen.

"...electronic device to enhance mens'... er... "longevity", and perhaps curb his propensity to retreat after firing only one shot. "

No electronic devices--but there are certain chemical compounds advertised during family television hours that purport to do the trick...many nanobots in the future...

BTW, Summer.  I love the new pic--you are a fox!

"Altering this default setting should be made as complex as possible so as to encourage the female of the species to become familiar with complex electronic devices."      This human female is plenty familiar with complex electronic devices.    And while your idea is interesting, from a purely gadget-freak perspective, perhaps we should just teach guys to master simple hook & eye fasteners.     Guys.... always in a hurry...  ;o)     P.S.  A true visionary would have suggested an electronic device to enhance mens'... er... "longevity", and perhaps curb his propensity to retreat after firing only one shot.  Do that, and the clothing will take care of itself!  ;o)

Bar's open!

Nice way to kick off things here Robert. When I get home tonight, I'm going to add some things to the SOLOThrust front page(if I can figure out how).
