Are you alright? Has something I said bothered you?

Once I'm on your friends list here then I can private message you and tell you about my site - I don't want admin here thinking that the reason I signed up here was to promote another forum, nor do I want my profile here to be publicly link-able to the my site.

What do you make of falling in love? Have you had any introspective battles with it? Have you ever experienced being mutually in love with someone and the sexual/orgasmic side of it be just as intense as the emotional?

At 6:16am on July 30, 2013, Nexus Six said…

Sorry for the delayed response, had a rough few days.

I like that you seem to have biological/evolution/social history based information as part of the backbone of your ideas - if you could point me in the right reading direction I would be grateful. It's becoming harder to find reliable information with Google with the changes they've implemented over the last few years. I was trying to find out more about female non-monogamy/promiscuity in mammals and didn't have too much luck. You've really piqued my interest and and I'm thinking about writing an article based on some of the ideas you've mentioned to share on my forum.

Do you subscribe to notions along the lines of polyamory? I have yet to begin my own promiscuous adventures, and I do indeed desire to, I feel I have much to explore about myself and the nature of human sexuality and female sexuality. I have yet to be with a sexual partner with whom reaching orgasm with is more frequent than rare. For a long time I have tried to figure out what the missing ingredient/s may be, but never pondered the notion that perhaps the size of ones manhood could be part of it. I think the main reason I leaned away from exploring that notion is because of my first boyfriend who was quite large (in terms of length, not girth) and I found certain position with him to be painful because of that.

I do agree with you about the presence of foreskin, there's a durability/lubricating nature of it that is much more pleasurable. I also have always had an aversion from the conventional notions of marriage - I don't believe in it and according to me people get married for the purpose of security, not genuine love. For why would genuine love require a contract, moreso one that is actually put down in legal writing?!!

I've never analysed whether people have an obsession with the 'right to breed' or whether patriarchal societies evolved out a desire for males to secure procreation - but I have long thought about and discussed where the roots of female suppression/oppression came from. The idea that males, who weren't anatomically the best suitors for procreation, drove societies towards patriarchal methods of operation would be a fantastic answer to the puzzle - for whilst I haven't researched into that theory, from a general perspective it does make sense. 

Do you believe that there are anatomically fitting females for males who have smaller penis sizes? I've read ideas about how there's a perfect fit for every male, that just because they're smaller doesn't mean there isn't a woman out there for him as some women will have smaller vaginas. This seems like it's plausible but then when I think about how the vagina's capacity to stretch (for child birth) is so much larger that it's size, it makes me wonder if that debunks the idea that certain vaginas will be perfectly content with a smaller penis. 

Here's another question for you - how do you juggle your biological perspective of those who are most anatomically fit for breeding versus their intellectual capacity for breeding. According to me, most individuals out there are unfit for rearing a child as their mental capacity to be decent parent is falls far below what a human child needs (you only have to look at facebook generation with all the parents who post pictures of their newborns for purpose of social cheer rather than any regard for the child.)

'do I want to greatly restrict breeding, while increasing sexual experimentation' > if only the world would embrace such ideas. But hey, I say yes to it and perhaps that's all that matters.

"I prefer to only "friend" people I've had several exchanges with."> thats cool, I understand. Actually, the way I found this place is kinda odd- I run my own forum and was was looking into a spam post which I discovered was posted in multiple places, including this one. Then I found your thread on 'The Myth of Penis Size' and was intrigues by what you had to say and the manner in which you did so.

You sound like you had some good parents, especially if you weren't subjected to gender roles which truly mess up the minds of most women. I was raised by Indian parents, in a very Hindu home. I think my propensity to always ask 'why' since I was a kid was something that didn't fare well with the culture I was bought up in, let alone the Indian notions about what a respectable female is. 

But going back to your thread that caught me, where did you find that 'Authentic Women's Penis Size Chart' or did you create it yourself? What motivated you to look into that topic? I myself have an interest in discovering why an imbalance exists in the percentage of women who reach orgasm versus the percentage of men - there's something very unnatural about it according to me.

I'm looking forward to talking to you more :)

Hi T A A,

Happy New Year.  Would you like to take a look at this?  I've made a good stab at the Objective Morality theory.
