There, I said something girly on the top of the page. All is well.

Hehe, get it? Cause I said 'periods', and I just used a bunch of periods in my ellipses. I'm so clever.

Anyone every study in the bath? Are there personal experiences to prove or disprove that it'd be more effective?


I've honestly never brought a book into the bath. I haven't actually taken a bath in a long time, although all this posting about it is making me want to. I can imagine that studying while relaxed is far more effective than studying while tense, though.


Seeing that I already have my degree, no I do not study in the bath.

I do however take books in with me to read. (I have also been known to set up a small square table next to the tub to have my computer next to me so I'm still connected...). But yeah, LOVE reading in the bath. Just keep a towel within reach in case your hands get wet. If I'm absorbed in what I'm reading, I'll stay in there for well over an hour.

I'm kinda scared to bring in my current book though. It is slightly wider than a normal book by an inch or two, very heavy/floppy, and has very thin, smooth pages that will warp slightly even if I leave my hand in the same spot for too long. I don't want to know what bath steam would do to it. (house of leaves)

You're reading House of Leaves? Don't read that in the bath. That is not a bath book. That is a book to be read in a slightly darker room, alone, with your back firmly against a wall. Trust me. A bath would just kill the entire mood of that book.

My copy has thicker pages, but I'd probably still be worried about bringing it to the book into the bath, even if it wasn't going to destroy the mood.

ha! Thanks.. yeah that is partially another reason I haven't brought it in with me. It's not really something I'd be in the mood to read in a relaxing bath. (with bubbles! always with bubbles!) I got through a lot of other fiction and philosophy in there, though. Great place to reflect and think where it's quiet, comfortable, and hardly any mental distractions except occasionally that itch on your lower back that's immersed in water but you don't want to get your hands wet, but you do anyway... ahh.

I'm fond of fantasy, personally. I actually didn't end up reading at all this bath, though I brought the book in. I just lay there and listened to Barenaked Ladies. I turned my volume up a little too high so I figured it would just be distracting. And turning down the volume when it's in outside the room and I'm soaking wet is tough.

It was still nice, I've spent most of the last week thinking about Warhammer anyways.

I wish I could join the conversation a bit more cohesively, but all I've got is a warning / fun fact: it is possible to be allergic to bubble bath, so be careful!

(Thus I have not taken a bath since my age was in single digits. Alternatively, I have become excellent at the ten minute shower!)

She was easily distracted. One time, when it was just me and her, the other one was away somewhere, possibly cooking me some eggs, and I was performing cunnilingus. I was thinking about something else, and not really doing my job. I snapped back to attention, and heard she was giggling. I stopped, and looked up at her, and she said "hee hee, it's a cat." Yeah. There was a cat watching us.

You already know what I mean by "the other one". Cooking eggs was a joke, as it's a scene from a movie that is very famous in New Zealand. At the time, my other girlfriend was in Kaikoura, I think.

Gotta love short attention spans.

I've gotten used to the cat watching me and my boyfriend... For awhile he liked to jump up on the bed and lie between us whenever things started to get interesting. We started calling him the Chaperone. Now he just sleeps on the chair and watches. I'd lock him out, but I'm so whipped by the cat it's not funny, and he sounds so pathetic when he's outside the room alone.

I've been having a problem with tampons lately. I've been using them for a couple of years now, but I stopped about 6 months ago, and now I don't seem to be able to anymore. Even those tiny little ones with the "silk-ease covers" and all that, I just don't seem to be able to get them in! I've tried relaxing and picturing myself next to a gurgling brook and other kinds of things, but my next thought is to try to maybe put a little lube on the end of it?

Any thoughts? I just wanted to see if anyone else has had any issues with trying that, so it doesn't screw up the absorbency or anything.

I've never had any issues like that -- generally, the necessity for tampons generates its own lube for me. However, I don't think putting lube on the outside of the applicator should pose any issues to the tampon itself, as it's not touching any of it.

Pretty much blind luck, and it helps if your girlfriend is bisexual. I'm certain we have talked about this, in the onanism thread. A long time ago.

Yeah, lubricate the applicator. I shouldn't think that the lube will affect the absorption, but it's better to be safe than sorry, right?

Something like that. XD And then if we shut the door, it takes him all of 10 minutes to decide we're not interesting and begging to leave the room, always at the worst time.

We kinda cheated around that. Initially, the landlord said no, but a friend who was moving in already owned a cat and had nowhere else to keep him. So we got to have the cat. Then the friend moved home with his parents, but the cat stayed because his parents are allergic to it.

I don't really mind the cat watching, he normally just sleeps now... What I don't like is the decision each night to either put on a shirt and sleep with the door open, or lock the cat out and listen to it all night and morning.

A friend of mine has the most ideal cat, ever. She's loving enough that she'll come up and demand attention for a little while, and she's friendly and trusting enough to literally climb on your shoulders for a nap, but she's rarely around when you don't particularly want to be bothered. I don't know how, I don't know why, all I know is that this cat is awesome.

I don't know how, I don't know why, all I know is that this cat is awesome.

Nice. Sounds like the cat is more empathetic than most humans.

Our cat is just talkative. He likes to be pet, but prefers to just be around people, and likes to meow. Alot. Which is annoying, but other than his habit of sitting just out of petting reach, not that bad.

My house has a bathtub that's right next to a fire place, and in view of a t.v. the downside is it's in my parents bedroom-bathroom.
I've had ice cream in the bath tub on days when no one else was home tho'.
Spending the day in the tub is a pretty awesome day off.

goin' back further than I should,
Katastrophy wrote:I had an interesting conversation with my boyfriend last night, trying to describe the differences in male and female bodies. Like, what it actually feels like to have a vagina and boobs and mood swings based on the cycle of the moon. I don't think he quite grasped it all. I described a vagina as similar to an ear (comparatively, he described a penis like a foot you couldn't control). It's an opening you never really think about because you don't normally have a reason to. Sometimes, it leaks.

Boobs are really hard to describe though. I never really think about them that often, but he pointed out that they have their own article of clothing and alot of women can't go without a bra. Really odd trying to describe bouncing boobs to a guy... Mood swings too.

And then just to spite me, Shark Week snuck up on me and I woke up covered in blood. There goes my "It's not really a big deal and you don't really notice it" explanation. Perfectly valid for most of Shark Week, but there's a few occassions when I really hate it.

An ear? That seems kind of strange to me. My ears are dry most of the time, sometimes waxy, and more like normal skin than most other orifices. I've also never ruined an article of clothing with gunk from my ears. I mean, my vagina isn't usually sopping wet, but I don't think it's ever dry like outside skin. (it's possible I just think about sex a lot)
Sensation wise, I've always thought the vagina felt a lot like the back of the throat, pretty sensitive but kind of vague, I can squeeze and sort of push with it(is that weird?), and it hurts to put something too big or sharp in it, but there's no gag reflex. Sometimes pushing in a tampon feels a lot like trying to swallow a big pill, only in the wrong place.
Except for cramps, it doesn't feel like much to be bleeding, except for worrying that it's soaking through everything, which probably isn't different than leaking from any other orifice when you don't want to.
Not sure how to explain having breasts. Are girls' nipples any more sensitive than guys'?
If you let your hand go limp, and shake it out, I guess that's kind of similar to boob jiggling.
Mood swings don't seem that hard to explain tho', it's like when you get really hungry without noticing, and just want to hit someone, or curl up and cry for no good reason.
Or it's kind of like someone walking up, punching you in the stomach and then leaving so you can't do anything about it. Am I wrong, or is there a general feeling of injustice to it?

I think you tend to be more conscious of your throat, since it's connected to your mouth and you have alot more control over it. The leaking bit is a bit of a stretch with your ear though, I kinda described it like when you have water in your ear and then it pops.

I found the mood swings really hard to describe, normally because I don't recognize why I'm acting a particular way until awhile afterwards. And my boyfriend is so even tempered all the time that trying to describe them was just weird. The only exceptionally notable changes in his attitude are when he has an obvious reason for it, like over his parents visiting or when he's had too much caffiene. In those cases, he knows why his mood has changed, and it's not over some moon cycle.

My personal experience says yes. I'd have to be really trying to get pleasure out of it to get anything from my own nipples, whereas (in my experience), nipples are extremely fun for girls. Then again, I did have an uber-sensitive (in a good way) ex-girlfriend, so that may be the difference.
I want to have Bakemaster's babies. It's possible, with science.

I wonder if you can see...
...what is wrong with my signature?

This question has plagued me for... 3 years...

Girls: Does it hurt to get hit in the breasts and is it the same pain that is equivelant to getting kicked in the balls?

maybe you need more practice? I kid,
they aren't exactly the same, but I think they're more similar to eachother than they are to ears... How much control do you have over your throat? The throat does get more use, but they are both tubes of muscle...

My nipples don't usually seem that sensitive, except for when I'm aroused. whole breast area really.
It can sting pretty bad for a while to take a hit there, but it's not unbearable agony. "oh dang, that hurts" but not curling up on the floor crying in pain.
