decorum.

Postby Simon of the Playa » Mon Aug 15, 2011 9:21 am

proper decorum and behavior is the key to everything.

Swing if you want to, but for those of use who are monogamous, keep that shit to yourselves, and do not cross the line unless you are ready for the response.

i am a violent bastard if i feel i have been disrespected by any behavior that is inappropriate towards me or my lady.

it is what it is.

i am what i am.

i have no problem letting people be whatever they want and do what thou wilt, however, when it infringes on or imposes upon me or my ways, then the line is crossed, and an unpleasant response is certain.

its all about respect, and honor.

We are not swingers by any stretch of the imagination.

Dr Sinister wanted a swanky place to sleep, so I built her one. :mrgreen:

i was referring to the general poly population and not to anyone in particular.

like any group or philosophy or lifestyle, they tend to proselytize their position and attempt to "Convert" in order to justify their own choices.

to each his own, just keep it to yourself or others who have expressed interest in it without prompting.

Masons wont talk about Masonry unless asked about it....i Like that policy.

You're old fashioned.

Modern attitude:
Meet my girlfriend. She loves blustery/cocky guys like you. She particularly likes the way they squeal as she leaves the snivelling on the floor. One of her black belts included a specialization in edged weapons so she would not waste time sneaking up on sleeping people (as you state you would do - not very gentlemanly). She would simply walk up to your face and cut your organs out. Or maybe she would employ some of the techniques she learned as a military hand to hand specialist...who knows? Perhaps you would prefer to compete on an intelectual level? Shall we discuss her phd...

It's kinda fun. Submissive women that need 'protecting' are just plain boring.

I have a fold up cot with a real (albeit thin...but comfortable) mattress. Did the big, fat air mattress for a coupla years, but now I just swing my legs over the side of the bed to the tent floor and stand up. Before, it was always a struggle getting up from the damn air matt. YMMV.

to each his/her own...I would have it no other way.

However to judge others preferences as boring is quite boring in my view.

i have merely taken the position of my preference, without imposing it on anyone else.

and i would never hit a woman unless she asked me to. that is something different.

i have not judged, yet my choices are disdained as 'quaint'.

Ah thread drift.... Gets back onto beds....
My camp cot was uncomfortable until I put a cheap sleeping bag and a cotton sheet over it. Now it is just wonderful.
Now back to thread drift.... I am built for comfort not speed and am hoping that these attributes assist in my desire to sleep on my eplayan crush, or at least rest there briefly. :oops:

Eplayan crush?

Postby MyDearFriend » Tue Aug 16, 2011 5:09 am

Another Eplayan crush spotted!

Bwahahahahaha, I have been picturing BRC as Shakespeare's Forest of Arden 8) everybody chasing each other around, trying to hook up...

Maybe TnT could draw us a diagram, with circles and arrows and a paragraph for each person, depicting a daisy chain that would satisfy everyone...

Some folks might need to be tied down, to make this work. :shock:

I agree about the inflatable. This year I am trying to put a futon on top of the inflatable. We'll see if it works.
