The sweetest kiss

What a lovely story. When I lived in Paris I often walked past the spot where this picture was taken and wondered about the subjects.

I wonder if Françoise Bornet is secretly kicking herself now for not suggesting that she and her boyfriend got naked for the shot…

Politicians get plastered!

Less than two weeks before an election, Prime Minister Tony Blair, Conservative leader Michael Howard and Liberal Democrat leader Charles Kennedy have all been cast as knee-high plaster characters.

The trio are decked-out in their political party colours acting out their policies, said the digital television gardening channel, UKTV Style Gardens, who released the models.

"There is a gnome for every political persuasion. The exquisite Tony Blair model is digging around for non-existent weapons of mass destruction," a statement said.

"For those with an influx of snails and other garden beasties there is the scary Michael Howard gnome holding a "Keep Out" sign and for the more relaxed, there's a charming carrot-topped fellow sitting on a fence supping from a glass of ginger beer."

The channel has made only 10 sets of the political gnomes to be won in an online competition, but a spokesman said demand was strong and they were considering mass producing them.

Now I like to be a fair person so where are the gnomes for
Caroline Lucas and Keith Taylor, and Roger Knapman, and Robert Kilroy-Silk?

So in keeping with the theme of the gnomes acting out their policies, any ideas anyone?

Now I’m not expecting you to run off and make a gnome, take a photo and send it to me, no, just give me some action… if you see what I mean.

Wok and Roll!

I was going through my shopping bill the other day when it occurred to me that it costs me £1.74 a week to wipe my arse and £45.76 a week to create the need to wipe my arse…

Hmm, anyone know of any good recipes for toilet roll?

Double trouble

Do you ever have those moments when your mouth just works way too fast for your brain?Mmmmmmmm

You see I was at the gym last night and I forgot to take my mp3 player with me, I ALWAYS take my player with me because I NEED music to keep me going otherwise I start to lose my concentration, and start wondering around with this vacant look on my face.

Anyway I forgot my player, damn!

So there I was on the rowing machine and wasn’t really putting a lot of effort in to it because I didn’t have my tunes see. Then out of the blue this guy on the rower next to me leant over and said:

“Has anyone ever told you that you look like
Halle Berry, I swear you could be her double?”

Now I’m not concentrating and I certainly wasn’t expecting that, so what do you think I said in response? Nope you won’t guess.

I smiled and said:

“Thanks, but I don’t really see it myself, I think it’s just that we have the same colouring and hairstyle, buy hey I wouldn’t mind shagging her ex.”

Yep! No brain to mouth involved there.

I continued the mumble something about how good looking Eric Benet is, then thanked him for the compliment again, and practically ran off to find a cross-trainer.

Now the fact is that I do think Eric Benet is gorgeous, sexy, mouth watering, but did I have to share this with this guy right there and then.

My problem is that all too often I don’t really respond differently to a guy than I would to a girl. If a girl had been rowing next to me and leant over and said the same thing I would have responded the same way. It’s just my humour; I wasn’t attracted to the guy.

Monty’s post yesterday got me thinking about flirting, because you see I don’t view what I do as flirting, I just see it as me being me, open and direct, and my sense of humour is of the naughty kind, I just can’t help it.

It gets me in to trouble though.

P.S. Mind you I wouldn’t mind dressing up as cat woman

Lip Service!

Late one evening last week I turned on the TV and saw a ‘designer vagina’ live operation being performed (well it was L.A.) by genital guru Dr. Matlock

Lori’s vagina had been *damaged by childbirth, (* in other words the vaginal wall muscles weren’t as tight as they used to be), and Lori and her husband hoped that the surgery would give her back her pre-birth vagina and improve her orgasm ability. She also opted for some flesh removal to give her vagina that
Penthouse look.

I was stunned. Women have been giving birth since the year dot, and trust me this is a very long time. After child-birth although it only takes 6 weeks for the uterus to return to its pre-pregnancy size, it can take anything from 4 to 12 months for the vagina to regain its former size and over-all shape, everywoman is different.

However women can help this process along by doing
vaginal exercises, yes this takes longer than 3 hour surgery, but there are no risks involved, the exercises can be done anytime, and it is these exercises that will improve both orgasm ability and orgasm intensity, not surgery.

Unfortunately I think women have the designer vagina op more for their husbands, partners, or careers than they do for themselves. The surgery does make the vagina tighter and so this does of course feel good for the guy, but for the woman it’s the exercising that makes the difference.

As for the removal of fleshy bits this is purely aesthetic and intended for the eye of the beholder, oh what beauty!

Another point to mention is that after several years of marriage and a few babies, foreplay goes out the window. However foreplay is vital; through foreplay the vaginal walls become engorged with blood and the texture and sensitivity of the
G-Spot changes.

This female sexual response to foreplay actually makes the vagina feel tighter, firmer for the guy, and very sensitive for the woman. Again everywoman is different, some need 10 minutes some need 20, maybe more, while others need just 5!


Having said all this I can appreciate that many women need some sort of medical procedure or surgery in cases of incontinence, or a prolapsed uterus and/or bladder, but not a designer vagina.

Sadly many more women will choose the quick fix solution and merely end up with tighter vaginas not a better sex life for themselves.

Smart Balls while at the gym, takes my workout to a whole new level!

P.P.S. You don’t need to have given birth to do these exercises.

Travelling light!

I deserve a gold star.

I relinquished my Saturday morning lie in to take a friend to the airport, but this is not all.

My friend hasn’t flown a distance for some years, and as we loaded up my car with two suitcases, a suit carrier, and a carry-on, I said nothing but I had my concerns.

He’s off to Dubai to try out a business venture so he needed to pack suits as well a leisure wear. Unfortunately he’d left it until the last minute to pack, got stressed about what to take, and obviously decided to take everything.

We made good time and arrived early.

Of course on checking in my friend was told that he had excess baggage; the allowance was 27 Kilos and he had 37 Kilos - did he not check his ticket? He was told the excess would cost £20 per Kilo.

Now you have to understand my friend was already quite stressed about the whole trip; never been to Dubai, trying something new etc. This news just didn’t help.

He was told that he could send one of the suitcases separately as cargo and this would take 10 days. This just caused him more stress.

I decided that the best option was to re-pack and I’d take one suitcase back with me. On suggesting this I noticed a few beads of perspiration form on his brow, so I piped up “Come on, lets find some seats open everything up and I’ll help you re-pack.”

So off we trundled to a quiet area and set about the task at hand.

I have to say I was ruthless; well he’d clearly packed way too much in the first place for one month away.

At some point I just cracked up due to my inherent ability to see the funny side of everything, but also because, and I’m not one to exaggerate, I counted thirty-two t-shirts, ten suits, thirty pairs of socks, thirty shirts, twelve trousers, I lost count with the underwear, and then stopped counting.

His idea was that he wouldn’t have to wash anything while he was away. But he took it in good spirit when I pointed out that Dubai is in a developed part of the world and will have such things as dry cleaners and launderettes.

I was so ruthless that he ended up having 7 Kilos to spare, so I cheekily told him that he could bring me something back weighing 7 Kilos.

Male Intuition

According to a study men are as intuitive as women, if not more. The article states:

Men seemed to be better than women at detecting fake smiles in the opposite sex. Men correctly detected 76 percent of fake female smiles whereas women detected just 67 percent of men's fake smiles.

Of course it could also be viewed that men are simply better at being insincere.

But riddle me this. If men are as intuitive as women then why can they never intuit the following:

1 When a woman wants to have sex
2 When a woman doesn’t want to have sex
3 When a woman is pre-menstrual
4 When a woman is feeling unloved
5 When a woman doesn’t want to hear about his crap day a work
6 When a woman wants to tell him about her crap day at work
7 When a woman needs cheering up
8 When a woman just wants cuddles
9 When a woman is feeling playful
10 When a woman wants to be alone


Now don’t get me wrong I’m not a man basher, I’ve just never come across an intuitive one. But hey, I can always be optimistic.

Policies

Okay I’m not normally one to do political posts as such but I was inspired by a visit to Casino Avenue.

Besides this isn’t really a political post in fact it’s quite fun:

One for the boys

I didn’t want you boys to feel left out.

So, if you had to choose just one who would it be, Heidi or Eva?

One for the girls

Okay! Given a choice and bearing in mind that you can only choose one, no going back, who would you choose?

Personally for me, Enrique, and it has nothing to do with the fact that he’s 12 years younger, and everything to do with the dark, intense, Latin looks.

But I don’t want to sway your decision, so which one, Brad or Enrique?

Royal Wedding Cam

Well just in case you’re interested…

http://www.royalweddingcam.com/?page=1

Yeah, thought not, I'm off to wash my hair.

In other news…

I was in Covent Garden yesterday for a haircut and the place was packed with Italians, I thought this was quite funny considering… but I’m not complaining.


I had my radar highly tuned, and I have to say there is something about Italian guys with dark features…

Excuse me while I dab my lips…

No Groping

Has it really come to this?

I’ve never been to Tokyo, but I’ve lived in some of the worlds other major cities and used the subway, tube, or metro daily during rush hours, and I never been molested. I have numerous girlfriends and they have never been molested.

Now I’m not saying it doesn’t happen as obviously it does, but is this the best solution? It seems to me that this doesn’t solve the underlying problem.

I totally agree with the points raised in the rant ‘n’ rave article. A better solution and one that would deal with the problem would be to install cameras, and have some system in place where by if a female is molested she can report it at the next station. The incident could be investigated and then the offender could be issued with a fine, and in severe cases taken to court.

Something similar to NYs guardian angels would also act as a deterrent.

The current solution just doesn’t address the problem.

Audio pleasure...

listen to track


I have a passion for music and in particular I love unusual music from around the world, so when I stumbled across http://www.theselector.org/ I decided to linger for a while.

The aim of the site is very simple; to bring together a community of creative
selectors, and to share this creativity.

The site has about 22 selectors now and each individual brings such an interesting flavour to the table.

I stop by each day for my daily bite of audio pleasure.

The site owner is Jessica and it’s her birthday today and I’d just like to say happy birthday Jessica and dedicate a song:

Marriage

Marriage (Part I)

Typical macho man married typical good-looking lady and after the wedding he laid down the following rules:

"I'll be home when I want, if I want, and at what time I want, and I don't expect any hassle from you. I expect a great dinner to be on the table unless I tell you that I won't be home for dinner. I'll go hunting, fishing, boozing and card playing when I want with my old buddies and don't you give me a hard time about it. Those are my rules, any comments?"

His new bride said, "No, that's fine with me. Just understand that there will be sex here at seven o'clock every night... whether you're here or not."

(DAMN SHE'S GOOD!)


Marriage (Part II)

Husband and wife had a bitter quarrel on the day of their 40th wedding anniversary!

The husband yells, "When you die, I'm getting you a headstone that reads:

‘Here Lies My Wife - Cold As Ever.’”

"Yeah?" she replies. "When you die, I'm getting you a headstone that reads:

‘Here Lies My Husband Stiff at Last.’”

(HE ASKED FOR IT!)


Marriage (Part III)

Husband (a doctor) and his wife are having a fight at the breakfast table. Husband gets up in a rage and says,

"And you are no good in bed either," and storms out of the house.

After sometime he realises he was nasty and decides to make amends and rings her up.

She comes to the phone after many rings, and the irritated husband says, "What took you so long to answer the phone?"

She says, "I was in bed."

He responds "In bed this early, doing what?"

She says, "Getting a second opinion!"

(YEP, HE HAD THAT COMING, TOO!)


Marriage (Part IV)

A man has six children and is very proud of his achievement. He is so proud of himself, that he starts calling his wife," Mother of Six" in spite of her objections.

One night, they go to a party. The man decides that it's time to go home and wants to find out if his wife is ready to leave as well.

He shouts at the top of his voice, "Shall we go home 'Mother of six?"

His wife, irritated by her husband's lack of discretion shouts right back,

"Anytime you're ready, Father of four."

(RIGHT ON, LADY!)


Marriage (Part V)

A man and his wife were having some problems at home and were giving each other the silent treatment.

Suddenly the man realised that the next day he would need his wife to wake him at 5:00 AM for an early morning business flight.

Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper,

- Please wake me at 5:00 AM -

He left it where he knew she would find it. The next morning the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 AM and he had missed his flight.

Furious, he was about to go and see why his wife hadn't woke him when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed. The paper said,

- It is 5:00 AM. Wake up! -

(Men are not equipped for these kinds of contests.)

God may have created man before woman but there is always a rough draft before the masterpiece!

I know bit of an odd post after yesterday’s romance, but its all in good spirit.

School of Romance

Extract from Devil in a Kilt, by Sue-Ellen WelfonderTrue romance

Flickering light from the campfire played upon finely honed muscles that rippled with each move he made as he bent to aid his squire in removing the rest of his garb. Not even Ranald’s fearsome build matched Duncan MacKenzie’s.

Her heart sprang back to life, leaping to her throat as he rolled a pair of thin woollen braies down his muscular legs. Faith, even his buttocks appeared fierce and proud! Linnet wet her lips and gulped, hoping to ease the sudden dryness in her mouth.

She’d seen every one of her eight brothers and a goodly number of her cousins unclothed. But nary a one had looked as intimidating as the giant who stood across the fire from her.
Spicy, racy, romantic fiction depicting wild, powerful, herculean heroes and passionate, insatiable heroines is big in America accounting for $1.4 billion in the romance market, and apparently Scottish historical romances are the most popular.

I think most women love a good romance story, romantic fiction is filled with fantasy, melodrama, charm, glamour, risk, mystery, nostalgia, adventure, and fairy-tale love.

But what of romance in the real world, I have had conversations in the past with a few of my male buddies on the subject of romance, and it seemed to me that the female/male perception of romance is very different.

Guys seem to think that the kind of romance women want is not doable unless the guy has lots of money, i.e. whisking us off for a weekend to Florence and staying in a 5 star hotel. Well yes obviously this sort of romance needs money, and if you just happen to be courting Paris Hilton, then hey.

However most women are just as happy with small romantic gestures on a regular basis; flowers, perfume, or just some silly little personal item that says ‘Hey, I was thinking of you today.’ This sort of romance is preferable to none at all.

Then again many guys are just not good at doing romance; they feel inadequate in this area, they simply don’t get what romance is. I’ve often thought that a ‘School of Romance’ would be a good idea.

Oh no, I feel a reality TV idea coming on… with ‘School of Romance’ as the title. Take 10 of the most unromantic guys and… well you can guess the rest.

Smooth Operator…

Now I appreciate it’s not unusual to see female commuters applying their make-up while sat on a train/tube on their way to work, some even manage such a ritual while driving. But as I was travelling by train to Waterloo yesterday morning I saw a guy shaving!Smooth Operator

I was sat there and I could hear this vibrating sound… getting slightly excited I looked up and there was this guy with a portable shaver, sharing a part his habitual ablutions.

I have to say I found it hard not to stare, but then I thought anyone who’s going to shave in public can deal with the looks… and may even quite like it.

I remember exchanging a silent laugh with another female traveller; we both thought it was quite odd to witness.

The funny thing is it took him such a long time, I’m not exaggerating he sat there for 10 minutes, tracing the action of the shaver with his fingers until he felt sufficiently smooth. Surely it would have taken less time to wet shave in the privacy of his bathroom.

I guess I should be thankful for small mercies… he wasn’t a back, sac, and crack guy!
