swinging

I may be going to see Clerks II soon so that should be fun. When I went to Yahoo today to read mail I saw this story. I had to read it. I will post a couple comments about it after wards.


At swinging convention, sex is on everyone's mind By Adam Tanner
1 hour, 21 minutes ago



LAS VEGAS (Reuters) - Vera Rhodes has come a long way from her conservative upbringing in Pennsylvania's Amish community.

There she was a virgin until she married at age 30. Now, she is an enthusiastic 54-year-old member of the millions-strong "swinging" community who speaks openly of her encounters with multiple sexual partners.

"Last night it was really special," said Rhodes, who is divorced and makes a living giving massages in the Midwestern state of Iowa. "There was a couple from Mexico, a couple from Virginia and a couple from Ireland, from Australia."

"I like to participate in life as much as possible," she said with a broad smile.

Rhodes was among some 3,000 people gathered on Saturday at the Stardust Hotel in Las Vegas for the annual Lifestyles conference, a five-day, $700-per-couple event (377-pounds-per-couple) that offers a mix of seminars, socializing and sex.

Early on Saturday, Rhodes was back for more, joining the action in a suite where more than a dozen couples were having sex.

The conference organizer, Robert McGinley, 72, president of The Lifestyles Organisation, estimates that there are 3 million swingers in the United States alone. He founded his group in 1969 and began holding the annual conferences in the 1970s.

He said his firm brings in millions of dollars in annual sales from organizing tours to swinger-friendly resorts, Internet sites and from conferences. The Las Vegas event is the largest annual U.S. swinging event, he said.

"The lifestyles community is rapidly expanding," he said. "It's an expanding economic powerhouse."

MOSTLY MIDDLE-AGED

The crowd at the Stardust appeared mostly middle-aged and middle-class. And many were nowhere near as active as Rhodes. Organizers estimated that perhaps 40 percent of the couples were attending their first conference.

"I'm still thinking about it; we've been monogamous for 26 years," said one middle-aged newcomer from Palm Springs, California, who said she was raised a Roman Catholic.

At one seminar, several women were overcome as the presenter demonstrated a sexual device -- one passed out in the packed room.

For all their enthusiasm, few of the swingers tell family and friends about their hobby.

"Socially, we're pariahs," said Drew Alexander, 40, who attended with this wife Tina, 38. "We're behaving in a way that's completely against the ingrained Catholic values."

Another couple did not want their names printed but were far from shy. They made love early on Saturday in the hospitality suites where couples wandered from room to room to watch the action at close range. They emerged from their experience beaming, saying seeing others sparked more passion.

One attendee who stayed completely on the sidelines was the man behind the event.

"I've never been a big swinger, that's not the point," McGinley said. "What I would like to do is bring a new understanding of sexuality in our lives and our relationships."



I thought it was a decent article. I think that if I had a cool girl that I would have no reason to swing. However that being said I think I really might like it. I think there is something powerfull in the fact that some else is willing to let you have sex with your girl and vice versa and that both people know that there women are happy enough with them that there is no chance of leaving them. It is also a way to spice things up and have fun and experiment. That being said I don't know if I could really do that. In theory I could. But often what one has the courage to do in therory isn't that easy to really do. Basicly everyone is strangers and you are not only trusting your partner but also the couples and everyone there. It seems that for some people it is really up there allay. It does seem like it is sord of a way of cheating with out really cheating for some people and if that is the case than maybe that couple shouldn't do it. I think a documentary about the swing convention would be preaty cool. I don't mean something that is just all sex like a porn but something that is informative and show sex even if they bar out some faces to give a better understanding of it.

Sci-Fi serenity

Last night I watched Serenity I saw it at the movies , on HBO in demand. It is one of a few movies I have seen with future represive governments like V for Vendeta, Aeon Flux, all the star wars movies and some others. But it got me thinking about movies that have philoshpies in them as opposed to just basicly action. Yes there is a good guy and a bunch of evil guys in action movies. But often there is no philosphy. I can't say that I'm a huge sci-fi fanatic. But one thing I like is that often philosphy plays a part in the story and that makes the movie more interesting. I know that it isn't only in Sci-fi that philoshpy has a big part in good Kung Fu movies like Iron Monkey for example and I can't remember the name but there are corupt monks. I will admit that you don't want a movie to be all philosphy and no action but a good mix makes a movie a lot better.

rate 420

Ok so I admit rating sites are evil but verry fun in some ways. But I got a message on myspace about one that a few people might like it is called rate420.com it is girls with bongs. So far nothing dirty but it is kinda intersting. But I wonder do I rate them do I go by what the picture of the girl looks like or should one really rate the bong. Again I have to admit that those sites are so evil. Unless you understand that it is just for fun and that you are really just rating the picture and not the actual girl. I wonder how legal the site is also. I mean no one smokes any thing legal out of a bong. But are they really using it or just look like they are using it. I wonder if that sight will come back and cause those girls there jobs. I wonder if it is legit or mostly models. In any event it is a good time Killer to check out some time.

Another site with ladies with bongs. This looks a lot more professional. That is not the only thing on this site but some of you may enjoy it.

Another interesting site is jlist.com . They sell movies and snacks and stuff from Japan. Yeah some of it is porn. But when you go there they have a site that dosn't sell any adult stuff.

camp fire? Bon fire ? Can Fire?

On my way to work yesterday I saw something interesting that I forgot to post about. In downtown Buffalo outside the convention center between city hall and the square there was what looked like a fire. It was early and dark still maybe aroun 5:20 Am . There where a bunch of chairs and some people sitting around from what I could bearly see what kinda looked like a garbage can and you could kinda see light coming out from it. At that time in the morning I am sure as hell not going to go up and say "hi I'm on my way to work what is going on here?" Then there where a few people also standing around near the bushes. This morning I was late for work that got me downtown about an hour later (i lost and hour somehow this morning) so say about 6:20am and there where people sitting on nice folding silver chairs. Then there where a few people sitting on the steps that lead up to the convention center doors on the second floor. I was wondering if some people who live downtown get to gather in some communel event. It is warm out so it isn't homeless people staying warm. If it was where would they have gotten the matching (at least from a distance) chairs. So now I'm thinking maybe it is people who work at the convention center. For things like this Is why I wish I had a cell phone i would have loved to take a picture (not sure how it would come out) then load it up to (e:strip). If anyone knows what is going On it would be cool to know. I have no idea if they will be there on wendsay but maybe anyone is still up and has nothing better to do go see if they are there.

Aeon Steam

Over the weekend I never did get to see A Scaner Darkly bur I didn't think I would. On friday Clerks II comes out and that looks verry good. I was surprised that they had huge hanging posters for it at the Elmwood regal. This weekend I decided to get AEONFLUX on PPV , it was verry good. Yes it is an action movie and had a few plot turns so it was fun to watch. I admit I have only seen the cartoon a couple times so don't know how much it followed it. But I thought it was good. The other movie I got to see was Steam Boy. First of all there was some really amazing animation. But some scenes in the move where really dark and you could kinda just here sounds. That may have been more like that because the subtittles where bright Yellow. In the discripton it mentioned all these famous people who did the voices but than it wasn't that version. With out giving away to much of the story it is set in the past and the Steam family is a family in working on steam engines. As in some animees philoshpy is a big part of it, there is a theme running through it about how science should be used and that it shouldn't be used as a weapon or just for profit. I thought there was some preaty good action in it and enjoyed the battles and the characters. Sometimes animee with kids arn't my cup of tea but this was preaty good.

Italian Taste Martin

Yeah I'm a little bit behind on posting pictures. I have some up finally that refer to previous posts. I put up a few from the taste of Buffalo. Then the next set of pictures is Paris Burning (short hair singer Rob Bilson). Then the next pictures are from the Same night of Jeff Martin. Then finaly a couple pictures from the italian fest. I went for a couple hours and had fun. I ran into one person from work and there family and then my sis who lives near there. Also saw the New Pirates of the Carbbean move. I thought it was good had a little more physical comedy and a few kinda gross things then I thought but it was good. There where a few shots of some white sand beaches. If you have never been on a white sand beach it is hard to describe but they really are amazing. Hope you enjoy the pics.

Sabres Logo and more

For those of you who don't know there is a new Sabres logo that was sliped onto the internet. It isn't offical and from what i have read sabres officals have not confirmed it as there logo. There are a lot of people who don't like it, me being one of them. I like the current jersys and the old style and would even like to see a modernisation of the old jersys but the new symbol is yuck to me. if you want to check it out go to.


The sqaure was a lot of fun I liked both Burning Paris and Jeff Martin they both where preaty good. It was a great time and I was only a little bit distracted by the ladies and general sournings. Hopefully I will have pictures up sometime this weekend. But Havn't downloaded them. The one thing I didn't like about Burning Paris is that Rob Bilson can really sing but it seems like he was holding back or that the music wasn't writen for him to really sing like he can. Wish I knew how to explain it better. Oh yeah in the papper I saw canal fest is going on and so is the Itailin fest. I gotta check out the itailin fest.

Thursday (not the band)

Well I do belive Jeff Martin who used to be the lead Singer of "The Tea Party" will be at the Square on Thursday. I do have his new CD, I don't like it as much as I do "The Tea Party" but it is still good. I don't know if he will do any Tea Party stuff or not but I'm looking forward to going, I have to go and maybe get a few pics as well. If memory serves me correctly the italian fest starts on thursday as well and runs through the weekend it might be wendsday but I think it is thursday. I know I will at least make it there on Saturday. I been tired this week I guess from work and keeping kinda busy. But tired or not I plan to be at the concert even if it means I have to have a few energy drinks.

quick taste

Yesterday was a good day. I worked for a few hours and that will make the paycheck nice. Got home went up to the bank and then picked up my pictures at walgreens there are a couple pictures that I don't remember taking at the party. I also got some pictures of 30 seconds to Mars (e:ladycroft) took they are preaty good. Then I went tot he taste of buffalo for a little bit before my concert. I ran into (e:PMT) as they where leaving. I had couple things to eat but it was really packed and it was frustrating it seemed that some people just wouldn't walk. At the concert Nickleback was really good really loud and had really hot fire that looked like the speakers where on fire, my seats where preaty rad. Some chick actully came up and talked to me she was preaty nice. I admit I couldn't read the signs if she was into me or if she was just friendly she seemed cool though. Hobastank was great they picked up on the stiffness of the crowd but where verry good. I also really liked Hinder and three days grace I had a great time. I will be going back to the taste today and hopefully post some pics.
