Not to be promoting a thread I started or anything, but I know we were talking about a male Pill a while ago either here or in the lady thread and I thought people might be interested: link!

I'm pretty sure it's papa not mama.

Also how about the beer song as a manly song?

How about The Man Song? Probably the most unmanliest song ever, tho.



I don't know, this is far more manly (manlier?), for a number of reasons.

It saddens me to see what Spader has become...obviously he and Shatner are the best thing about Boston Legal...but he's a mess physically... sweaty and flabby and generally obscenely unhealthy in appearance. He looks like a man either battling alcoholism, or on steroids.

Maybe this had been brought up already, but how does the manliness of back bacon compare to that of side bacon? I mean, back bacon does come in slabs...

I dunno, seems about the same to me, in terms of manliness. I prefer back bacon because it's usually less fatty, more bacony.

I'm going to have to say side bacon. A manlier man fears no fat. All the more to lather up the bacon that is present.

Would you like some fat with that bacon?

The best fat is in pork crackling, or edging pork belly. Bacon fat just gets in the way of bacon.

Goose fat is also pretty awesome - great for use when roasting things (which I intend to master this winter).

I had a lovely burger from Whataburger today with BACON and JALAPENOS. It was delicious.

That reminds me. I asked for jalapenos on my burger at a BK in California. The guy at the counter had no idea what I was talking about... I was rather surprised. Needless to say that burger only had BACON on it.


Okay enough of the somewhat unrelated prelude let's get to some actual content.

I'm not certain that this is the most appropriate place to ask my question but it'll fit in enough.

I was wondering today at lunch as to how a friends with benefits relationship develops. Are these things talked about? If so, how would/have you gone about bringing it up? I can't really see myself asking them outright if they want to add benefits to the relationship. That seems too forward for me and in my mind leads to awkwardness if they say no.

It seems more likely that one day it just so happens that, as Meaux_Pas said so eloquently, "Whoops here's a cock in you"!

Yes, No, Maybe?

I'm asking 'cause I'm curious. I suppose I'd like to know how I could best bring it up, then again I don't have a girl with whom I have a really close friendship in which this would be possible. It's really more of a hypothetical.

When I had such a relationship it came about because I pretty much wanted to get laid. I had a female friend who shared a mutual attraction but neither of us would ever into a relationship with each other (we were friends and wanted to keep it on that level). So, one day, she was complaining about her sexual frustration. I grabbed her and kissed her. I stopped, and just looked at her for a response. All she said was, "nothing serious?" to which I replied, "nothing." Then, every so often we would just call each other up to see if the other wanted to come over. This continued until I was in a committed relationship. She understood and it was no big deal. We're still friends and nothing is weird when she comes over to hang out. Its all on the maturity of the two people.

Most friends I have that have had similar type friends with benefits simply expressed their interest in the woman but clarified that they were seeking nothing more. It helped to have some established rapport with them first (close relationship not needed but something most definitely). Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

I agree with this. It seems like it's beneficial to have some rapport with them. If not then you can't be certain about their intentions or how attached they may become (regardless of what they say).
Then again even if you have rapport with them it can still turn out that they didn't really mean the "nothing serious", even though they said it and you had every reason to believe them.

There's something I need to bring up that is truly worthy of the man thread: urinal law. The idea that no man should pick a urinal directly adjacent to another man, and that the furthest one should always be taken. I do go by the latter one, since it's just creepy when there's a line of 10 urinals and some guy takes the one right next to you (has happened once). As for the former, depends how bad I need to go, you can always comb your hair while you wait or something.

Also, no talking. It is NOT COOL for men to talk to each other while they are exposing their genitals.

The men choosing adjacent urinals doesn't really bother me much anymore. Probably because I've often been to bathrooms with too few urinals so you always HAVE to pick an adjacent urinal.

Also, no talking. It is NOT COOL for men to talk to each other while they are exposing their genitals.

This rule only applies if you don't know the person.

That actually depends, particularly on the size of the dividers. I, for example, am very tall, and most dividers are basically a moot point for me.

I avoid urinals altogether for the most part. For a long time i worked at a place where the urinal would splash you when it flushed. Most of the time i would avoid it but every so often i would forget and it would look like i pissed on a concrete wall about a hair's length away when i was done. Well, it wasn't that bad but you get the idea.

My AP Chemistry teacher explained electron distribution in terms of urinal rules (they never pair up if there is a free space available elsewhere).

I don't think that you have to choose the farthest, just not the one right next to one in use. I also think it's OK if that is all that's available. The appearance of feeling uncomfortable is not manly. I think up to one syllable is allowed if you know someone, but it must be completed prior to your zipper coming down. "Hey" and "Sup?" are two acceptable conversations. "How's it going?" is too much.

My understanding is that any male bathroom conversation must take place between men who are doing the same thing. Meaning, two men using urinals may converse, but a man using the urinal may not converse with a man using the sink or a man waiting to use the urinal.

Also, looking around while using the urinal is NEVER acceptable. Eyes must remain fixed on the wall, the pipes, or into the urinal if you are insufficiently skilled at pissing without looking (not manly).

Why is there so much embarrassment about taking a piss? I don't understand how there's shyness over cocks when you're doing something totally non-sexual like urination. You all have one unless you're a pre-op transman or an amputee, right? What's the big deal, nothing you've seen before. I mean, unless your urination habits involve watersports with another man, I highly doubt you could logically be construed as bisexual or homosexual. I just don't get this, and probably never will, and every time I ask any guy why seeing another man's penis is creepy (even to my gay friends), they just say it's somehow really disturbing, and thus I think they're big babies. :roll:

PS: I found out recently that DVDA (as referenced in the above band name) means "Double Vagina Double Ass," as in, a sex act in which four guys put their cocks in a girl's vagina and ass at once--two at a time. I assume you could also throw two cocks in her mouth and go DVDADM, but that seems excessive and bordering on bodily hazard. What I want to know is: How do men, who, is it established, cannot even stand near one another to urinate, can be comfortable enough with one another that they can rub their penises and bodies together whilst penetrating the same orifice of a hapless woman? I mean, SERIOUSLY, this makes no sense. Also, stretched orifices = pain. This seems like it would be a selling point for a particular breed of perv, though.

EDIT: *plays Abbey Road backwards* :twisted: post count.

EDIT^2: "DVDADM" sounds like a bass line onamatopaeia for Cannibal Corpse, or a creepy Latin chant.

I completely agree with you. Now, I sometimes get a little uncomfortable trying to go at a urinal, but that has nothing to do with the penes around me and everything to do with feeling like I am somehow in a spotlight. Like, however long I'm standing there with no splishing sound, everyone in the room will know that's how long it took me to go. It's a stupid psychological thing.

But being next to someone versus having one or two or five urinals between us? Who cares?

... Wait, your gay friends think seeing another man's penis is creepy? Doesn't that make things difficult for them? I'm only somewhat bi, but the penis is one of the few parts of the male body that I actually like.

... Okay, that was probably sharing too much too soon. Oh well.

Edit: And also, grats on the post count. I was about to comment on it in a different thread when I realized that you had already done so here.

I never have been aware of the 'urinal laws' ever being used except as satire. Of course not to say most people don't find using a public restroom to be a bit disconcerting. I think it's mostly due to being overly self conscious, which can magnify the perceived awkwardness and amount of attention you think is focused on you. I think some of it stems from the fact that we're told nudity in public is bad, and you're essentially dropping your pants in a public space.

As for what the whole DVDA thing I can't really picture how that'd work. I mean physically, how do you position all the guys there?

There'd have to be some rotations involved. No longer would everyone be operating in one plane. For each 'insertion point', there'd be one man in the same plane as the woman, however the other one would have to be rotated 90 degrees. Essentially meaning only the hips/waist would get in the way anymore.

...I think I've thought about this long enough, but it was an interesting spacial geometry problem.

Yes and no. They're commonly shown in an excessive manner that makes it funny but more or less they are the common culture in the bathroom.

From what I understand another acceptable thing to look at is the ceiling. If you can lean back and look up while pissing and not piss on yourself that's proskill.

Also you can only talk to other urinalists as a urinalist or other hand-washers as a hand-washer if and only if the topic is immediately relevant and manly. For example:

Man 1: "Wow, did you see that homer in the 3rd inning? That was a great shot."
Man 2: "Yeah. I caught it. Bitch."

Or.

Man 1: "So, I've got a dead hooker in my trunk. You want it?"
Man 2: "Of course."
Man 3: "I call sloppy seconds."

Are these laws? Is there some sort of criminal prosecution or massive catastrophe that takes place if they are violated, or are they as inviolable as the speed of light?

When dictating etiquette, is it not better to use 'should', and also include information advising the reader as to the best course of action should someone ignore the expected proprieties?

Of course, as one who never uses such places anyway, I'm not very knowledgeable as to their properties. They may very well explode if such rules are ignored, in which case using 'must' is quite acceptable and in fact preferable. However, if that is the case, it might be best to make a note of it so that everyone is fully aware of the consequences.


Wait, you never piss? No "Tra-la la here I am in a public area where I have been for five or six hours whoops it appears I must urinate"? So, what? You hold it until you get home, or do you find some bushes or a tree, or what?

Anyway, the massive catastrophe is generally relegated to a pissed off glare or a "shut the fuck up, douchbag" if the glare didn't get the point across. Simply because it's not legal to stab someone in the throat, nor is it generally a survivable wound.

Ettiquette is described in "This is what you do" speech, not "We think it'd be extra super if you could possibly" speech.

A gentleman is always polite to those he meets
vs
A gentleman should refrain from calling someone who offends him a "cockgoblin"

Note the difference.

Okay, cockgoblin is an awesome insult I must add to my vocabulary.

I've always said cockgobbler but I suppose its all the same.

Etiquette: It is better to ask for forgiveness later than to ask for permission now.

I never use urinals, and I mean never.
pollywog is awesome, that is all.
Addendum: Sethicus is also cool to the maximum.

One day I hope to have one installed in my home. That way I never have to hear any complaining about leaving the toilet seat up.
