Re: "Aversion Fads" Discussion

Hmm, I think I would sort of respond the same.
It's not that I have a problem with furries, but I think I've got a problem with people who take to the streets. I think I would respond exactly the same to anyone taking their fetish outside and so would 99.5% of all people.

Re: What do you wear when you sleep?

I usually wear just a t-shirt, but that wasn't in the choices...

pants and underwear are annoying when I'm in bed, but I need a shirt because I tend to get my shoulders uncovered, which will wake me in the night.

When I'm in the room with someone who isn't my gf, i'll wear boxers as well.
