I'm not into three-ways, but if Utah can turn his back and wait his turn, I'd be okay with it. Of course, that is only if Avery is too, I'm not into force at all.

EDIT: I removed the line through my comments - which didn't belong there - and in the future will not make any jokes of a sexual nature about Avery. If she had expressed her displeasure with the first one, the very first time I made it, I wouldn't have repeated it. I am a respectful person, when someone tells me they're offended instead of silently and arbitrarily censoring me. I am still a respectful person even when they do said action, hence why I will never make sexual jokes about Avery in the future. I certainly hope I don't see any inuendoes in past posts about her, and if there are future sexual jokes about Avery, I hope they receive treatment consistent with the treatment I received.

Utah, no kidding this time, I told you I didn't mind if you added stuff to my posts afterward (if abusing your 'power' got your rocks off somehow) but I told you NOT to alter what I post, itself.

Not cool.

And, Avery, it is precisely that you're a lady which makes me ok with the idea of us getting a room. If you weren't a lady, I'd have no interest.

 

Dwayne, I belong on no list of any kind, with anyone. I am one of a kind and thusly deserve my own list.

Yeah, in day to day life, subtle and/or ironic aren't typical descriptors for me. I am a good man, but not a subtle man.

That comment about being on no list was indeed meant, however, as ironic because of the fact that everyone thinks they're special. Even me!

and in the future will not make any jokes of a sexual nature about Avery. If she had expressed her displeasure with the first one, the very first time I made it, I wouldn't have repeated it. I am a respectful person,

This is an honest question: I'm curious, why would you make a sexual "joke" specifically toward Averydoll in the first place? Is that how you live in the real world? Do you randomly tell female friends and acquaintances and random women on the street jokes like these? 

And how does your "woman" (your words, not mine) feel about you making sexual remarks toward other women? doesn't that upset her? maybe not, I'm just asking.

Strange Photon's picture
Strange Photon from Fort Wayne, IN is reading Laurie Anderson lyrics March 28, 2013 - 11:00am

Sean, my woman would have, and has had (since she likes to read over my shoulder) no problem with anything I've said on this site since she has a good sense of humor, keen intelligence, and confidence in where my loyalties truly reside.

I've been reading these threads for closing in on a year now, and I've enjoyed the pervasive wit and playfully ribald jocularity I've seen from most everyone here, directed at most everyone else. I came to believe that there was a communal sense of fraternity (not meant in the gender-specific sense) and as such, we were all of the same mind that a joke is a joke. I came to feel (possibly incorrectly) that I was part of this communal goofing and acted as such. Since my joke was neither random (as it was in reference to another user's remark to get a room) nor was it specifically aimed AT Avery (as Utah was included, and it wasn't some sort of mean-spirited attack AT her), I fail to see the issue other than her own personal offense to the remarks - which I have since noted and she and I have agreed to move on from.

If you'd like to have hte horse's corpse to yourself, you're welcome to it.

 

PS - for anyone who feels my referring to my woman as 'my woman' is some sort of disrespectful and demeaning label meant to keep her barefoot and in the kitchen, you're completely wrong. She and I are engaged, so I can't call her my wife, and she hates the words girlfriend (since we're more than that, and not in high school anymore) and we both think fiancee sounds pretentious when used repeatedly. So when I asked her long ago what I should call her, she said, "Well, I call you my man, so it's only fair that you call me your woman."

Hope all that answers your honest questions and curiosity.

you better stop talking about my woman, or we can take this outside. Tell another joke referencing your inadequate but constantly overcompensated for dick being anywhere near my woman, and I'll treat you like a pathetic sniveling stepchild.

Uh... Sean, what are you even talking about?

I asked you politely and respectfully why you would make sex jokes directed at averydoll. I would have asked you this no matter who it was you directed your "joke" at, but this happened to be a special case, as she, Averydoll, is my "girlfriend." You came back with a righteaous response basically telling me I was in the wrong for saying anything, referencing kicking a dead horse, and overall dismissing the fact that you did anything wrong. 

So, I tried to say what I had to say bluntly and in a way that you couldn't possibly misunderstand, but unfortunately did that wrong too. Possibly because i didn't end it with "...suck my dick?"
