Snark-free? What good does that do here?

Really great sites! Thanks!

Yes, yes, and whatever you want it to mean.

klangklangston, you are quite perceptive about me. As a gay woman, I am constantly frustrated by the diminutive size of my penis.

Not really.

If you use a butt plug, always buy/use one with a "flare" at the bottom so that it cannot escape inside your anus.

I felt like I had company when I was watching "Prison Break" last week....

I wish someone out there would post the definitive answer to all the questions about the sex lives of midgets which seem to be a major source of search engine hits for my site, for no reason I can explain. Is this site the one which will finally relieve me of that?

There certainly seem to be a hell of a lot of folks out there curious about it; I get a couple of hits per day like that. (Don't ask me why, though.)

WHY THE HELL ARE PEOPLE GOING TO YOUR SITE LOOKING FOR INFORMATION ABOUT THE SEX LIVES OF MIDGETS?

Also, why do Yanks use "horny" and Brits "randy" to describe sexual arousal? Was there a conscious choice in using different words in the States a la -our versus -or spellings? And, which one comes closer, ontollogically speaking, to the visceral phenomena?

I have next to no clue about what I'm ever talking about here, by the way.

I talked to the girl about penis size and she said she wouldn't let a little thing like that come between us.

Was there a conscious choice in using different words

There are more words for sex or aspects of sex than there are atoms in the known universe. That the US and UK happen to use different ones for "sexual arousal" should hardly be surprising. Rather, the fact they are even remotely similar, two syllables and ending in "ny" defies astronomical probability.

why do Yanks use "horny" and Brits "randy" add them together and you get the solution - handy.

You said penis.

scheptech, I doubt there are as many words as there are atoms in the known universe.

Excellent post! I wish that I had such easy access to sensible information on sexuality when I was a young'un.

Your peepee is just too small to see!

Yes, no, and 'you don't want to know'.

Oh, that wasn't a questionnaire?

I just can't predict metafilter. I thought folks would be all over this post, in fact, I hesitated to post it because I didn't want to be a popularity grubber. But I guess most folks don't want to favorite a link that starts with "Is my penis too small?"

Damned if I know! (It's this the search engines seem enamored of.)
posted by Steven C. Den Beste at 8:38 PM on April 30, 2007


I just can't predict metafilter.

I found the information in the first link rather sparse, bland, and simple repetition of what I've seen before. The liberal inclusion of call-in numbers was nice I suppose.

I suppose I'm rather jaded about sex advice after reading Dan Savage.
posted by Rictic at 8:48 PM on April 30, 2007


Yes. Probably. I need more information.

Is my penis too large, or were those girls in high school just being nice?

What on earth is it escaping from such that hiding in my anus seems like a good idea?

Sex-based search queries to my site seem to be disproportionately about blowjobs, but I'm more amused than despairing. Midget-based-queries would definitely wear me out though.

(Plus you would not believe how many forlorn teens are sitting out there in the wee hours of the night typing Sylvia Plath excerpts into their search boxes... you feel like reaching out and giving them a hug. Which I suppose would be alarmingly unwelcome, but still, metaphorically speaking...)

At least if it has a flare it should be able to signal for help.

Lots of typos. "Moisure" for one. Yikes, very educational I suppose.
