Hi all,
Took a break due to a lousy month, but I'm back! Some of my prices may be out of date, so I apologize in advance.
Due to everything going on from Humble's side, I am okay taking Steam keys, especially if you have rep.
Looking for humble gift links or keys with verified screenshots at the prices below!

HOW TO MAKE A GIFT LINK WITH HUMBLE CHOICE

On the "Choose your games" page, you click a game, scroll down and click "gift to friend" instead of "get game". Then you see the usual region lock notification about countries that receive a different game version than you do or do not receive the game, and you can pick between generating a gift link or sending the game via email. "Get game" will instantly reveal the key and NOT simply add the game to your Downloads page for this bundle.
Due to recent Humble bans, I recommend trading with labeled keys and will accept them.

REGIONS

EXTRA GAMES

Most games not listed - Will pay minimal amounts ~$0.10-$0.25 each (example: Will buy the new Humble Choice full for $15.00) - this is negotiable and I might just be missing some games.

2020.11.24 04:49 Elrondel [H] PayPal/Venmo/BTC/Steam Games Gifted [U.S.A] [W] Games (Such as: Godfall [$35.00] Shadowlands (NA) [$22] Fall VR Bundle [$22.00] November Bundle [$15.00] Tropico 6 El Prez [$7.00] All Previous Humble Months / Most Bundles - Prices Listed)

Hi all,
Took a break due to a lousy month, but I'm back! Some of my prices may be out of date, so I apologize in advance.
Due to everything going on from Humble's side, I am okay taking Steam keys, especially if you have rep.
Looking for humble gift links or keys with verified screenshots at the prices below!

HOW TO MAKE A GIFT LINK WITH HUMBLE CHOICE

On the "Choose your games" page, you click a game, scroll down and click "gift to friend" instead of "get game". Then you see the usual region lock notification about countries that receive a different game version than you do or do not receive the game, and you can pick between generating a gift link or sending the game via email. "Get game" will instantly reveal the key and NOT simply add the game to your Downloads page for this bundle.
Due to recent Humble bans, I recommend trading with labeled keys and will accept them.

REGIONS

I am from the US and expect games to be US redeemable and will cover fees on larger trades, or would prefer if we split fees!

EXTRA GAMES

Most games not listed - Will pay minimal amounts ~$0.10-$0.25 each (example: Will buy the new Humble Choice full for $15.00) - this is negotiable and I might just be missing some games.

2020.11.24 04:31 TS_RELIDO When is it wise to open up about your kink with your partner?

Hi everyone! I’m (27M) a longtime lurker with a question concerning my relationship to my girlfriend (28F).
We are members of the same church where we first met over two years ago. I loved watching her sing with genuine joy in Christ; I gave it a shot and asked her out.
Fast forward to today and we have been dating for a year. In the process, we have grown a ton. Our love for God has deepened as our love for each other has grown. We are both aiming for early 2021 as a likely time when I will pop the question. By God’s grace, we are maintaining sexual purity (it might be easier for me though because of the following paragraph).
So here’s the kicker: I have a kink. I’ve had it since ninth grade and will likely always have it. In my past, I had habitually pursued porn related to it (as recently as last year), to my great shame. But despite my rebellion, God is abounding in mercy and is clearly healing me. Covenant Eyes and accountability partners are the GOAT.
Personally, I don’t think it’s necessary to name what my fetish is, but if it sheds any light, it is not BDSM or something that causes pain or demeans the other person. Suffice to say, like most kinks... it’s just really weird.
Revealing my kinky side will be one of the hardest conversations I will ever make and I want to make sure I’m going about it the right way. I have considered waiting to talk about it until after engagement and in premarital counseling, but what if she is totally turned off by it or otherwise indicates that she wants nothing to do with it? Because of how I am wired I cannot easily imagine having my sexual needs met without her willing participation in the kink. Does my issue sound like a dealbreaker, and if so, wouldn’t it be wiser to have the talk sooner rather than later? By the same token, if I were to address it now while we were still dating, would it be too premature and unhelpful?
More than anything else, I want God to be honored by our relationship and I want to honor and respect her too. What should be done?

2020.11.24 04:16 Carliewarliee ♔ The 2020 Placement Megathread P.12 ♔ - The JETs Dances Their Asses Off

IMPORTANT NOTICE BEFORE WE BEGIN:
We've had some positive developments so far!!! Congratulations to all who have received their results thus far. Though in saying that, we understand that there are still some concerned incoming JETs with little to no information regarding the dates the placements will be released, or when they'll be setting out this year. We're also aware that due to the ongoing pandemic, new ALTs are not the only ones in the dark about when things might happen, as consulates across the world are still facing uncertainty during these troubling times!
At the moment, not everybody has a set date or time when things will happen. That much is clear from the emails and the continuance of this coronavirus. So let's be polite about each other's circumstances, and be supportive during these uncertain times!
Hang in there just a little longer!
On a side note: If you have any suggestions at all for a new title, feel free to share and it might just be the next megathread title!
Ahem... Now onto the main program!!
♔ Welcome, to the twelth part of the marvelous placement results thread! Guess we had some good news after all (so far) about people departing in 2020, thus continuing the revival of the mega thread series! ♔
How's it going? Hope you're all doing ok?
Come down and vent the excitement of their next adventure! This post will be for both ED and also for general departure candidates to share on their news and connect with other ALTs about their placement results :)
There is a 200 comment limit before reddit starts to hide comments, and the mod team will do their best to open up a new thread as this happens.
Not caught up yet? Want to rewatch all the episodes from the start? Well... Pick up your remote and select any of the following!
♔ The 2020 Placement Megathread P.1 ♔ - Pontiac Bandits
♔ The 2020 Placement Megathread P.2 ♔ - Jimmy Jab Games
♔ The 2020 Placement Megathread P.3 ♔ - Electric Boogaloo

♔ The 2020 Placement Megathread P.11 ♔ - The JETs Get Analysed

RULES

Keep all results in this thread. All other threads will be removed. This includes asking for more specific information about your prefecture/city/school, when you will find out more specific information (especially in relation to the pandemic), so on. If you made a new post and it was deleted, try again by commenting here!
We understand you may: want to commiserate about not getting your Top 3; be confused about having no idea where your placement is; or rejoice in having gotten your first pick. You may even want to talk about how COVID-19 is currently affecting the application process per country/state etc. Whatever the case... please keep griefing to a minimum, and try as best as you can to focus on the positives. This is a good chance to search through this mega thread and find others in a similar boat. Talk to each other, but for the love of God, don't spread misinformation if you don't know something.
We highly recommend you join your local AJET chapter's Facebook page. These people are going to be your neighbors and your support over the next year or longer. Go make some friends and get the local information that Google can't provide. Here is the Master list of JET Facebook Groups which should be your primary source of local information (Current JETs, please let me know if there are new groups that need to be added). Here's the 2020 Incoming JET Group on Facebook!

GENERAL PLACEMENT FAQ

☼ Where/What/HUH? exactly is my placement?? ☼
Japanese has a bunch of suffixes that they add to the end of names to tell you what they mean. In the case of placements that have ~ken, ~ken (eg. Shiga-ken, Ishikawa-ken), it means that you are a JET who will be employed by the Prefecture(likely High School). This means that your final placement likely hasn't been decided yet but you know the Prefecture that you will be going to.
Here is a list of most of the suffixes you might run into and what they SHOULD mean (sometimes they use historic suffixes for places).
Suffix Kanji What it means
-ken for a prefecture; Hiroshima-ken, Iwate-ken, so on. If this is the most specific info you have, it is likely a SHS placement, and it may take some time before you know the exact city you will be in.
-to 都, lit. "capital" prefecture-level region name unique to the capital Tōkyō-to
-fu prefecture-level region (sometimes translated "urban prefecture") named so for historical reasons. There are now only two: Ōsaka-fu and Kyōto-fu.
-dō modern administrative region of Japan (one "circuit"). Hokkaido is the only example that I know of that has this prefix.
-gun a district/county, usually rural
-shi a city +
-ku a ward of a city
-machi or -chō a town - this can be a local government or a non-governmental division of a larger city
-mura or -son a village; e.g., Kamikuishiki-mura - this can also be a local government or a nongovernmental division of a larger city or town
-Gakuen or -Gakkou 学園 or 学校 This is a school placement. This is literally a school name. Please be mindful of privacy concerns by not posting it here.
+Population must generally be over 50,000 to be named a city, but a city does not lose “city” status if the population drops below 50k. This should not be used as an indicator of relative "inaka-ness"
♠ My placement has the school name in it. Why is this different? ♠
Usually when you get a placement with a school name in it, it means that your contract will be with a private school. The majority of private school placements are in Tokyo, but there are going to be some outside of Tokyo. However, it is possible to have a private school placement without the school name being given to you immediately. Worry not, for either your successosupervisor or someone else will eventually let you know where you are going.
♣ I don't like my placement. Can I change it? ♣
Unfortunately, the nature of the programme doesn't allow for people to change placements once they have been assigned. If your placement is a deal breaker, the only way to change it is to back out of the programme and face the consequences. This means you cannot apply next year, and for UK JETs it means being blacklisted from the programme. There is consideration for extenuating circumstances if you do back out due to something that may be out of your control, please contact your consulate.
Transfers are typically only granted if you require special medical care, are getting married, or wish to continue on JET although your current placement is being eliminated. Transfer paperwork begins in November for July/August transfers. On the whole, transfers are exceedingly rare; there have been cases of married couples being denied a transfer because it ultimately is up to the contracting organizations to approve.
♦ I wanted a city placement and I got a rural placement/tiny island 10 hours from anyone else placement. Should I still go? ♦
In the wise words of Life After the BOE...
♫ My consulate has already sent out the placements and I haven't seen anything yet. What gives? ♫
It can take time before you’re actually placed, so please be patient. You might get a message next week, you might not know for another 2 months (or later given the current pandemic). Contact your consulate and please be courteous with them; they are trying very hard to get all of their ducks in a row, too. The waiting is hard, but it’ll come at some point!
♪ What should I do now that I know my placement? ♪
Master your Google Fu skills. Check out Wikipedia and relevant Facebook groups, try to get familiar with where you’re off to. Don’t forget to eat the food you like and see all the friends/family in the meantime, calling via social media (if they don't live at home, practice appropriate social distancing while keeping in contact!). Most importantly, stay safe, keep informed, and practice safe hygiene procedures as best as possible.
❤ Can I contact my predecessor? ❤
Some positions have rules as to when the pred can officially contact their successor. Trust, everyone is eager to get in touch with everyone else, but also be respectful of the red tape. Maybe you’ll be in touch with “someone” from your prefecture/city with unofficial advice before you get the bonafide email. But its possible that you won't either, and that you could be the first in your area! But ESID, right?
❄ Regarding COVID-19 and results / delays ❄
As all of you already are (painfully) aware of, COVID-19 has brought a lot of unprecedented changes in almost every area possible. As far as the moderators are aware of, for general applications going through, there are currently delays in the Tokyo office regarding acceptances/placements at this time.
We are unsure so far what further changes will bring for prospective candidates of the JET Programme, but as we receive further information regarding JET and CLAIR, we will put links below this section of text to keep everybody informed and up to date. I would greatly appreciate otherwise that COVID-19 discussions stick to the other megathread. Thanks in advance, take care and do whats best for you!

2020.11.24 04:02 loselosefamily What I wanted (sorry if not appropriate)

I wanted... a mom brave enough to ask others for more help on escaping an abusive situation.
I wanted mom intelligent enough to know that I would have been affected by her husband's abuse towards her, to not blame me by saying "I stuck with him FOR you to have a dad." It doesn't take a nuclear physicist to determine an abusive marriage is worse for the child than a single parent and otherwise blames the child. I wanted her to acknowledge that I DID comfort her over (husband) and DID reassure her that she's a good wife, a good mom, that she didn't deserve it, that yes (husband) did seem like a "bully" (because I didn't have the vocabulary to consider domestic violence), etc! I shouldn't have to TEACH HER he was abusive and she should have left!!! But I did! I'm the one who convinced her to get a divorce in the first place. And that's heart breaking for a child to do. And that she understood OBVIOUSLY I was feigning happiness around him to PROTECT her.
I wanted a mom to do more to encourage me to overcome my learned anxieties, not enable them. She thought I had to be like her, with her baggage, and that was fine. To not mock me when I faced my fears or be frustrated when I ask her to work on her own. I didn't want to grow up being afraid of everybody like her. She was supposed to give me the encouragement and maybe even (gasp) tough love to make friends and set up play dates even if the world's labelled me as shy.
I wanted a mom that had friends her own age/similar life experiences/just any adult except relying on your CHILD to be your only companion. God forbid I'm "lonely" - how can you be lonely, you're with your mommy all the time...? I never learned how to socialize! Neither did she! Please, I wish I could have forced her to find a babysitter and made her meet a friend at a cafe.

Oh my god. I know this sub has said enough shit about this movie, but watching it again it legitimately feels like they're trying to do a parody movie of terrible comedy films. Feels like the whole movie is a parody, a fucking joke.
You know "Epic Movie" or "Date Movie" or any of those films that try to make fun of actual good movie genres? It looks like that was exactly was James was trying to do. A parody film about shitty movies. He did what he does in AVGN while trying to do exactly the opposite (a movie with actual good writing and scenes).

Nagoya, Japan
Saturday, July 23rd, 2050
“Good morning to you both,” said Headmaster Tachibana with a bow. He was entirely too cheerful for the early morning.
“Always a pleasure, sir,” I said, stifling a yawn. There were appearances to keep up, after all.
“I was a little surprised that you were willing to volunteer,” he said with a raised eyebrow. “Some people might have backed out after that unpleasantness.”
“I did promise, after all.” I had considered welching, but I needed to make sure I stayed in his good graces. “A man’s word is his bond.”
“If Magpie’s helping, then I’m part of the package.” Kiyo didn’t hold back her yawn, which made me finally join in as well.
I didn’t think he cared for her declaration, but he let it slide. Wanting to change the topic, I scanned the small workshop. “I must say, I’d expected something a bit more lavish.”
To my mind, it barely qualified as a shack. We could all stand comfortably in the squat, concrete structure at the forest’s edge, but I was lucky I had only brought one extra volunteer. The circular space was ringed with a continuous workbench that surrounded us on all sides, and there were three narrow tables at the center of the room. Every available surface was covered in textbooks, notebooks of hastily scrawled magical runes and fabricata whose function I couldn’t even guess. It stood in stark contrast with his spartan, orderly office.
“This suits my needs perfectly,” he said. “I work with some dangerous fabricata, so I wouldn’t want to risk the Tower itself.”
“Of course, sir.” How noble of him. More likely, he simply wanted a place to get away from his responsibilities. Why couldn’t he have said that? “What would you like us to do?”
“Let me get the prototype first.” He settled back into his rolling chair and pulled himself along the circular workbench, coming to a stop on the other side of the room.
“How’s the new leg treating you? Did they get the fit adjusted?”
“I’m surprised you remembered that,” he said. “Yes, thank you.”
“Soren’s always very thoughtful,” said Kiyo. She cast a longing look at my hand, and I knew she would be holding it if it weren’t for the mixed company.
He picked through a few magical wands that were laid out on the bench before selecting one nearly as long as my arm. It looked to be carved from some sort of animal bone, which wasn’t surprising. Fabricata seem to work best when they’re made of a naturally occurring material. Wood is functional, but particular types of ivory are the absolute best, much to the consternation of what animal rights groups still existed.
“Say hello to the Peace Bond Mark II,” he said, handing me the artifact. He stood, without assistance for once. It must have truly been a better prosthetic.
“I can’t imagine that monster would be easy to hide on your body,” I replied as I studied the wand.
“Of course. If it works, we’ll have to miniaturize it.” He gestured to a device that reminded me of a sewing machine. “Plastic and metal fabricata are less efficient, but that 3D printer should be able to produce enough in time for the War Games. Once we have the design down, at least.”
“I’m surprised you already have a prototype. I thought you were waiting on our input.” The runes were carved too finely to see easily, but I could make out the gist of it. It very much resembled the old spell.
“Oh, I am, I am,” he replied. “This is our starting point. I left room to carve more stanzas into the wand to amend the spell. Which brings us to why I wanted both of your help. Could you tell me exactly what happened right as Ms. Jones became paralyzed?”
“I mean, there isn’t much to tell,” she said. “We were in those uniforms that read the hits we took against the Peace Bond forcefield and would tighten up, so it’d be like we were really hurt. They worked. I got hit in the back hard enough that it decided I was paralyzed, but not enough to get through the shield.”
“Reviewing the footage, it looked like you had already taken a few simulated injuries, yes?”
She nodded. “Yeah, they almost got me with a long-range spell and it knocked out one of my arms. I couldn’t cast anymore after that, but I could pull the trigger on Lucile.”
“What’s strange is that the Peace Bond didn’t drop the force field when the suit thought your back was broken.” He eyed the wand. “If the suit registered a complete shutdown, it should have declared you ‘dead’ and dropped the shield altogether. We’ll have to test a few different scenarios to recreate the glitch.”
I thought back on the battle. Once a combatant was officially off the field, it seemed that you could do anything to them you pleased. “Might I ask why?”
“Hm?” Tachibana looked at me quizzically.
“Why are the protective barriers dropped once a student is disabled?”
“It’s an energy saving measure,” he said. “We power the Peace Bond with a special transmitting fabricata that a teacher charges periodically. We can have more than sixty students active at the same time, so we ensure there’s enough magical energy to go around.”
It’s funny. I had been over that War Game a hundred times in my head and I’d watched the playback, but until that moment, something hadn’t clicked. “Permission to speak freely?” I asked.
He gave me a hesitant nod.
“You’re solving the wrong blasted problem!” I forced myself to dial back my outrage. Permission to speak freely didn’t mean I could afford to antagonize him. “Why wouldn’t an immobile student still need protection?”
“I…” Tachibana’s voice trailed off. “Well, because they’re noncombatants at that point. Nobody is going to target them.”
By the Dark Lord, how could someone be so trusting? “Sir, I know it’s been decades since you’ve been on a battlefield, but when you’re in the thick of it, you don’t always feel like stopping. Besides, what if somebody misses? When Rose went down, Yukiko and I were still shooting spells at each other.”
“Wait,” said Kiyo, growing horror in her voice. “The force field was supposed to drop? Thank God it didn’t! That’s what that kept me alive when the hillside collapsed!”
Tachibana’s own eyes had widened. “Oh, my goodness.” He collapsed back into his rolling chair. “We ran dozens of war games with the Peace Bond Mark I.” He removed his bowler hat and fanned himself as sweat ran down his balding head. I almost thought he was having a heart attack. “If anybody had missed with a Fireball… oh, my goodness.”
I wished I could have enjoyed my enemy’s misery. All that the devil in me could think was that, once again, I was helping the Wizard Corps to better itself. Hellfire and damnation! If I’d kept quiet, he would have persisted with rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic, while a fatal accident was only a matter of time.
He chuckled humorlessly. “It is amazing what makes sense on the drawing board.” His voice was barely above a whisper. “It was certainly energy efficient.” He gingerly turned over the wand in his hands a few times, as though it were a grenade with a pulled pin, before setting it aside on one of the tables. “I need to rethink my approach entirely. That will be everything for this morning.”
“Of course, sir. A good morning to you.” I turned away, only to have his chubby hand grab my sleeve.
“Mr. Marlowe,” he began, but stopped. He pursed his lips thoughtfully. “Mr. Marlowe, I can’t overemphasize how much you’ve helped the school today. Helped me today, really.”
“Please, think nothing of it,” I said. I didn’t need more reminders of how I’d strayed.
“You’ve saved at least one of my students’ lives,” he said, insistently. “If my mistake didn’t catch up with us this War Game, it would have eventually. It would have damaged the school’s reputation permanently.”
Yes, I’d already worked that part out myself. “Anybody would have done the same.”
He shook his head. “You would think so, but nobody else did. The entire staff looked signed off on the spell. I think… I think they just assumed that of course Headmaster Tachibana had thought through everything.” He released me, his face completely pale. “I owe you a debt that I cannot repay easily, but I will try. Please, let me know if there is anything you need.”
“Can we date again?” asked Kiyo, her voice full of hope.
“There’s nothing keeping you from dating,” he replied in an icy tone. “I’m sure you aren’t asking me to make an exception to the school’s fraternization rules. That would be extremely improper.”
Kiyo’s face turned red. “I kinda…” I gave her a nudge, and she got the hint, thankfully. “I mean, yes, that would be improper. Forget I said anything.”
“Naturally. Are you both available the same time next week? I’ll have the Peace Bond Mark III ready to test by then.”
I didn’t see an artful way out of it, so I nodded. “Of course, sir. Come along, my dear.”
“Y-yeah.” She gave him a goodbye bow and we made our way out of the workshop.
I waited until we were near the Tower again before speaking up. “You didn’t possibly think that would work, did you?”
“I thought it was worth a try,” she said, fidgeting awkwardly with her fingers. “He seemed pretty grateful.”
“He did give us more time off today than we expected,” I said, hitting the button on the elevator. We had been relieved from charity work to help with the headmaster’s doomed project, so the day was our oyster. I didn’t ask Kiyo what she wanted to do. I knew from experience that she’d say that was my job. Part of her nebulous boyfriend/girlfriend contract that she kept amending.
I checked the time on my phone. “The theater should be open soon. We could go catch a movie.”
“I like the way you think, Magpie,” she said. “It’s a dark place and pretty private in there.” She raised her eyebrow at me. “What?”
“I know I like to tease you, but for once, all I had in mind was watching a movie.”
Her eyes widened. “Dang. I guess I do have a dirty mind.”
As the elevator doors shut, I took her in my arms. “I wouldn’t have it any other way.” With all of the unearned praise I’d received lately for my so-called good deeds, a little sin was just the thing I needed to blast the stink of the Enemy off of me.

2020.11.24 03:16 kalenryan13 11/17/99

I have to write this now. I don’t know why I have the urge to write it all down, either. I think it’s the other half of me trying to bide itself more time… that’s why I should keep this brief. Every word’s an inch closer to- shit. I can’t put it on paper just yet. My name is Thomas Bruno. I found something in my basement the other day that opened some doors that really should have stayed shut. Ever since I found it, my skin has been rippling and chills have coursed through me. My organs don’t feel like my own. The dog is off its leash, now. But I don’t know if I’m the dog or if I’m the man walking it...
I moved out of my parents’ house a while ago. After high school, I decided to stay with them for another two years, just to get on my feet. I used to laugh about our differences. My mom and dad are unshakenly Catholic, while I’m borderline atheist. I was surprised they even let me stay with them for two more years, considering my history with parties, women, and weed, the latter of which I cut back on to get into better shape for football. My hair is dark, my eyes are brown, and their hair is blonde. My father has green eyes, while my mother has blue. I bought a house after the fourth time my parents had come into my room and caught me with another girl. My father came into my room later that night and told me the next time I was caught like that, I had six months to pack everything up and leave. I told him I’d get out of his hair early. I had all the money previously saved up, and I managed to get myself a small house, built in ‘74, painted gray with two stories (counting the basement) and almost zero square feet. During the moving process, I found a small VHS tape packed inside of a cardboard box.
I blew a cloud of dust off the tape, realizing there was a sticky note stuck to the VHS. I read it, and in faded letters written out in red pen, I could see that it said ‘BIRTH.’ I stuck my tongue in between my lips, staring at the chicken scratch letters. I put the tape away like I was lowering a slab of meat into a pen of alligators, drawing my arm back with haste once it was in the box. I fixed myself some dinner, just a plate of bleeding steak. I tossed and turned that night, thinking about the house payments and my own paycheck from work. It was frigid in my room, and goosebumps coated my arms and body. I remembered the tape, thought about it for a second, then threw it into the back of my mind. I thought back to that fourth time getting caught, my bedroom door opening and the oh shit look on my girl’s face, and the blank expressions that were on my parent’s. I remembered my mom throwing a condom wrapper into the trash, raising an eyebrow at me and saying,
“I hope these are all women that disrespect you just as much as you do them, Thomas. And I hope you treat your wife and kids better.”
The next day was a hellish one. I spent hours slaving away at my job, came home, and went to bed after lifting some weights. Football, college, and work were already weights on my chest, but there was a new weight. All day at work I’d thought about the house, and the opportunity that came with it- the chance to find a girl I loved and settle down, maybe even start a family. Over the weekend, I woke up early to my unlit bedroom bathed in shade. I was about to lay my head back down when I felt a squirming in my guts, like a worm writhing through my body. Without control I stood up and started to walk. The thought wormed its way into my head. The tape. BIRTH. It festered there for a moment, and by the time I had reached the kitchen, I’d decided I’d go into the basement and find the box.
I swallowed a mug of cold coffee, and chomped up a small stack of pancakes, without syrup or butter. I didn’t cut the cakes either; I just took a fork, stabbed a chunk off, then scarfed it down. I rushed into the basement, engulfed by the darkness. I tried the light switch, but it wouldn’t flick on.
“Ah, so it’s a pieceashit type of old house,” I murmured.
I ran back up the steps like I would down the football field, tore open a drawer, and ripped out a flashlight, slamming the drawer shut. I charged back down, then shone the beam of light into the cool, murky basement. There was a tiny leak in the corner, droplets of water spilling out into a bucket with a steady drip, minutes away from overflowing. Might wanna save up for some inspections and repairs, I thought.
Cobwebs were sprawled about on the ceiling, a few spiders crawling around through the silky mess. I cringed when I saw them. Ever since I’d been bit by a spider as a kid, I’d stomped on anything you might call a ‘creepy crawly.’ I rummaged through the cardboard boxes and plastic totes, waiting for the VHS tape to reveal itself. I found a dusty, scarlet red blanket in a pile of pillows and stuffed animals; my mom had made it for me when I was four. Hidden underneath a pile of various sports relics and kids’ toys in another box, I found the first football my father had ever gotten for me, when I was in kindergarten, still playing catch with him out on the front lawn. I also found a mangled action figure, one I must have played with all the time. It had a black cape, wearing a gray suit with eyes that I’d crossed out with pen or paint. I laughed to myself and put the figure back into the box.
I came across the box I was looking for. Inside, wedged under a few old picture books, was the tape. It stared at me without eyes… it conjured up images inside my head of hungry wolves and snakes flicking their tongues. I lifted it up and studied it, brushing off another spot of dust, checking the label again. I was surprised to find an old VHS player in the next box that I searched. As soon as I did, my chest ached. I stared at the tape, and then the player. There was a scream in the back of my mind, a booming voice, like God himself was crying out to me, SHATTER THE TAPE AND THEN BURY THE REMAINS TWELVE FEET DEEP. I dwelled on it a few seconds longer, thinking of the time when I was a boy, and my friend, Cameron, and I were going to walk down the railroad tracks. I’d warned him that the train might hit us; he punched me in the shoulder and said,
“And what are the odds, stat-man?”
I took the tape and the player upstairs and set everything up.
I took a deep breath, stared at the VHS as I held it, and then pushed it into the flap. It pulled the tape in like an invisible hand was on the other side, snatching it up to eat it. I listened to the electronic shuffling as the player worked itself back to life. My palms were sweaty, and I wiped them against my shorts, tapping my foot against the carpeted floor. It sputtered, and I expected the tape to fly out in a cloud of dust, and the VCR to set itself on fire. I took a few steps back from the TV. A few of my hairs stood on end. I whispered aloud,
“What are the odds, stat-man?”
The TV came to life. Static covered the screen. I hit a few buttons on the remote controller, and the screen went back to darkness. I tapped my foot again. Nothing happened for a few seconds, but it felt like minutes. White letters flashed across the black, a date. I skimmed it over and looked at my own reflection in the darker parts of the screen. My eyes were wide, like a cat’s in the night. A circle of candles lit themselves, my reflection in the middle. I gazed at the TV, my eyes adjusting to the darkness on the screen. The silence continued. The camera went in and out of focus, the images of the flames blurring for moments at a time. I almost fell backwards when the camera came into perfect focus. The candles were arranged in a pattern in the dark room.
A pentagram.
The orange glow provided enough light to reveal the feet swaying back and forth above the circle, and the sound of a groaning wooden beam.
“Jesus Christ,” I uttered.
Men concealed in maroon robes and cloaks circled the pentagram like sharks. The room got brighter and the camera picked up more grainy images. There were five chairs placed around the room, and each chair held up a pair of feet. Shaky breathing could be heard now. Each cultist started towards one of the chairs and placed their hands on it. With a gasp of wind, the flames of the candles waved.
The cultists all yanked the chairs at the same time.
Five necks snapped with the crunch of a popcorn kernel between your teeth. I winced as I heard a gasp of breath released by the survivor.
With a sharp tug one of the cultists silenced them.
The cultists gathered inside the circle, each one holding a different item. One was a plant with black flowers. Another cultist, one with a mortar and pestle, ground the plant up and scattered it across the circle. Another held a goat. It bleated, struggling in the grip of its captor. With the other hand, they brandished a rusty knife, which they slid up the goat’s stomach. The goat bleated louder as blood covered its body. The blade reached through the goat’s neck, the point jabbing out of its throat. It collapsed and stopped crying. The body was dropped into the middle of the circle with a thud. The veins in my wrists felt like they might explode.
What are the odds, stat-man?
The worshippers hummed, and one waved a cross in the air. They held it upside down, a leather-covered book in the other hand. They were reading a passage from it.
I felt my stomach churning, the taste of not-quite-digested coffee and pancakes in the back of my throat. Steam began to rise up from the pentagram in a thick cloud, followed by the humming and chanting growing louder. My vision grew hazy, silver flecks of light floating in front of my eyes. In my head I saw the tape’s label, the name written in shitty handwriting from a red pen. BIRTH. I spun over. A cloud of vomit projected out from between my lips, carpeting the floor. I panted, held onto my couch, and dragged myself forward like I’d been shot. My leg skimmed the puke, hot acid coating my knee and shin. I laid down on the sofa, waiting for my strength to return. My vision got blurry again, but returned back.
It came back twice as strong.
My eyes were sucked towards the TV. A geyser of blood exploded from the pentagram. The steam shot up in blasts of misty air, blocking out my vision of the ritual. Stripes of static and electricity crackled across the camera’s feed. For a second the tape displayed nothing but what looked like a broken phone screen. Distorted, gravelly laughter echoed from the VCR. Another bout of laughter came. This time, I heard it ringing out from around the house. I heard it in the very back of my mind, ebbing through my brain, clogging my synapses. The steady chuckle transitioned over time into the cry of a baby. My breaths came easy now.
From the blood came a torso, a head, arms, and legs. A baby of boiling blood hovered in the middle of the circle.
The tension in my chest had disappeared. I watched the baby materialize like I would’ve watched the morning news. I looked into the corner of the screen and read the date on the tape. 11/17/99. November 17th, 1999. Now the tension in my chest came back in a tsunami wave.
My birthday.
I scrambled to grab the remote, flicking the TV off in an instant. My breaths came in shallow gasps. A new feeling was born inside me. It was the sense that I was being torn apart from every direction, bloody hands and fingers plagued with boils and arthritis reaching out and yanking at a part of me. I threw up again, vomiting chunks of digested food and sour, bitter acid all over the floor. My skin pulsed, as if it were having muscle spasms. I rolled around the living room floor and screamed. I suppressed the salty tears as pressure built up behind my eyes. I slammed my fists against the floor like a monkey trying to escape its cage. There was a man in the room now. I couldn’t see him, but I felt him. I heard his laughter, distorted and gravelly, like the horrific shit that grumbled out of the TV.
It’s been a few days.
I keep having visions. Not dreams, but memories. They always come whenever I’m waking up in the morning, speaking to someone at work, or trying to fall asleep. I have visions of the unskilled blowie I got in eighth grade and I see the faces of every girl I’ve ever played around with. I see my friends and I rolling joints while the music screams in our ears and purple lights half-blind us or waking up in front yards of houses we don’t remember going to. Sometimes I see my grandfather. He died when I was five, but we visited him often because his wife was found bloodied in a bathtub when I was two. Him and stomach cancer had traded blows for years. He liked to talk football with me, and we went fishing a lot, too. I stood at his side while the life flowed out of him. With a dusty, winded whisper, he said,
“The Devil lives inside all of us.”
And a few days later the police closed the case on my grandmother’s murder.
A bloody knife was found in a box in my grandfather’s basement.
I was getting into the shower the day after I watched the tape, and froze when I looked into the mirror. A ripple tore through me. I grabbed my side and supported myself on the bathroom counter. My head throbbed with a stinging pain. I put a hand over my hair and felt something stabbing into the palm of my hand, so I pulled away. When I looked back into the mirror, a white knob of a horn had started to protrude out of my flesh. I stared at it, tapping it with my fingers. I looked into my own eyes. They were fiery orange, flickers of yellow and red behind the flames. I smiled to myself.
My teeth were razor blades.
I’m sitting on my living room couch right now, writing this. A loaded revolver sits to my left. I understand myself now. If I had full control over my thoughts and actions, I would’ve reached for that gun, cocked the hammer back, and repainted the walls in an instant. Every few minutes I pause and check the chamber of the gun, and I see that there’s still six bullets in there instead of five. I place my thumb on the hammer; after putting the gun down I continue to write this. At the beginning of my suicide note, I thought I was writing this because I didn’t have the strength to go through with it. Or, the Devil wouldn’t let me. It’s clear now. This wasn’t meant to be my suicide note, whether I knew that or not. This was meant to be my ‘wanted’ note. A warrant for my death.
I hope I still have the strength to get it outside of this house, into the hands of someone with the guts to pull the trigger.

2020.11.24 03:13 aspiendemonkin Satan's Fall: Parallels in Bible and Apocrypha

There are some interesting parallels in the Bible and Apocrypha concerning the Fall of Lucifer.
Three Scriptures and their (supposed) dates of creation:
  1. Conflict of Adam and Eve with Satan, Book 1 (a.k.a. The First Book of Adam and Eve): 6th century CE
  2. 2 Enoch: 1st - 10th century CE
  3. KJV Bible: First translations 14th century CE, officially published 1611 CE
Sources:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conflict_of_Adam_and_Eve_with_Satan
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2_Enoch#Date
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/King_James_Version
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/King_James_Version#Earlier_English_translations

I do not consider the KJV to be holier than other Bible versions. I am using the KJV in this post because it is, as far as I know, the only Bible in which "helel" (morning star) is translated as "Lucifer" in Isaiah 14, which I consider to be important for this post.
I do not believe that connecting the KJV's Isaiah 14 and Ezekiel 28 to Satan's Fall is an error of translation or interpretation. The reasons why are these parallels to his fall in the Apocrypha.

Lets start with the Isaiah 14 parallels (with a bit of Genesis 3 as well).
2. Enoch 29,3:
And one from out the order of angels, having turned away with the order that was under him, conceived an impossible thought, to place his throne higher than the clouds above the earth, that he might become equal in rank to my power.
Conflict of Adam and Eve with Satan, Book 1, 6,7:
"But the wicked Satan who continued not in his first estate, nor kept his faith; in whom was no good intent towards Me, and who though I had created him, yet set Me at naught, and sought the Godhead, so that I hurled him down from heaven,--he it is who made the tree appear pleasant in your eyes, until you ate of it, by hearkening to him.
Isaiah 14,12-15 (KJV):
How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Isaiah%2014&version=KJV

Then get to the Ezekiel 28 parallels (again Genesis 3).
Conflict of Adam and Eve with Satan, Book 1, 17,2-6:
But as they drew near to it, before the western gate, from which Satan came when he deceived Adam and Eve, they found the. serpent that became Satan coming at the gate, and sorrowfully licking the dust, and wriggling on its breast on the ground, by reason of the curse that fell upon it from God.
And whereas aforetime the serpent was the most exalted of all beasts, now it was changed and become slippery, and the meanest of them all, and it crept on its breast and went on its belly.
And whereas it was the fairest of all beasts, it had been changed, and was become the ugliest of them all. Instead of feeding on the best food, now it turned to eat the dust. Instead of dwelling, as before, in the best places, now it lived in the dust.
And, whereas it had been the most beautiful of all beasts, all of which stood dumb at its beauty, it was now abhorred of them.
And, again, whereas it dwelt in one beautiful abode, to which all other animals came from elsewhere; and where it drank, they drank also of the same; now, after it had become venomous, by reason of God's curse, all beasts fled from its abode, and would not drink of the water it drank; but fled from it.
Ezekiel 28,12-19 (KJV):
Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord God; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.
Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.
Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.
Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.
By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.
Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.
Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.
All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.
Genesis 3,14 (KJV):
And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:

Very interesting. What are your thoughts on these parallels? After you have read them, do you believe that connecting Isaiah 14,12-15 and Ezekiel 28,12-19 to Lucifer's Fall is an error of translation or interpretation? Or do you believe there are sufficient grounds to view these two Bible passages as referring to Satan being cast out?

2020.11.24 02:57 jotspot How do you get over internal homophobia?

It's extra messed up because I'm trans and I think I finally accept that. I still feel shame, but I'm getting there.... but OMG, I swing from "I'd like to see what a relationship with a guy is like" to "god dammit, that's so gay (even though it'd be straight)" and thus so wrong... to hating myself for the latter thoughts. As far as I know I'm either Ace+Biromantic, or just suppressing sexual attraction to men because of homophobia... But either way, please tell me, how can I get past this wall. I have literally not dated anyone in many years because I can't get over myself.
PS: After HRT I've been talking to other transgirls about their experiences with men just in general like a romantic sense, not necessarily sexual, and how they swept them off their feet and I hear that and I find myself really wanting that, like something I never felt before... and like I'm okay with that at the time, and then later I just feel so dissociated with the word gay that I shrivel up and find myself hating it as it's a reminder of how it is, despite my gender identity.
PPS: I am basically a virgin (except a little experimentation years ago in high school - but only girls, no guys)

2020.11.24 02:47 Prokinsey I read the Duggar sex manual so you don't have to! - "Intended for Pleasure" by Dr. Ed Wheat, Chapters 1-5

Whenever the Duggars are asked about sex they bring up Dr. Ed Wheat, Boobs sex doctopediatrician, and they always reference his book “Intended for Pleasure”. It would appear that this is THE Duggar sex book. The first edition of “Intended for Pleasure” was published in 1977. Jim Bob and Michelle were married in 1984, after the second edition was published. Anna and Josh were married in 2008, two years before the fourth edition was published. I’ll be reading the fourth edition. Skip to chapter 4 for the steamy stuff.
In the foreword, Dr. Dennis Rainey strokes the late Wheats ego, calls him a “prophet”, and complains about the sexual revolution. Rainey instructs parents to give this book to their children when they get engaged and have them read the first 100 pages + chapter 14 on STDs now and save the rest for “later”. The PDF version of the book doesn't have the pages formatted or numbered like the physical copy so I can't tell you where you're supposed to stop reading if you aren't married yet.
In the Preface to the Fourth Edition, Dow Pursley strokes Wheats ego and thanks a few people.
Chapter 1 - Intended For Pleasure
  1. This chapter opens with Wheat explaining that as a doctor he can only fix so much and that’s why he provides GODLY CHRISTIAN COUNSEL to his patients. Apparently, everyone and their dog were piling into Wheats office to ask him about their sex problems. The solution was GOD. God says sex and marriage are good and you should do three things: 1) “When we marry we should stop being dependant on our parents and in-laws. We are to become completely dependant on our mates to satisfy ALL of our needs. (Duggar fail #1) 2) The man is responsible for holding the marriage together by “cleaving” to his wife. (Sex Pest fail #1) CLEAVING in this sense means to weld together inseparably, so that each becomes a part of the other. Therefore, the man is to be totally committed to his one wife. 3) We are commanded to be joined together in sexual union, to be ONE FLESH.”
  2. Wheat THOROUGHLY rebuffs the idea that humans are animals or anything like animals. We’re BETTER than animals.
  3. Wheat is obsessed with scriptural references to sex. He says every book of the bible talks about married sex and it’s the ultimate good.
Chapter 2 - Finding God’s Design
  1. When an Arkansas couple attempts to make an appointment at Wheats office for their state-mandated pre-marriage blood test Wheat tells them they need to read four of his books first, including this one, which means he added that statement in the second or later edition.
  2. At the same time, he says he “asks” the couple to listen to two of his audiobooks before their appointment, and then says that the same information is available in chapter 4 of this book, which makes the information redundant. He must’ve made a pretty penny selling his books to people who just wanted a blood test.
  3. Reading these books and listening to these CDs supposedly ‘dispels many uncertainties and fears’, allows the couple to “begin their marriage with openness and communication”, and teaches them everything they need to know about sex.
  4. During the appointment for the state-mandated blood test Wheat likes to get handsy and quiz people. Has your doctor ever assigned you homework? He says “this procedure assures me that they’ve been told what they need to know and it affords me the time to go over the basic principles of the God-planned marriage with them during the office call.” Why he couldn’t quiz you with your clothes on I do not know.
  5. Wheat also does “premarriage counseling sessions” (clothes on or off? He didn’t say this time.). He says during the first meeting he gives the couple 11 biblical principles to ensure a happy marriage that works on anyone, believer or not, and that non-christian couples are “unable” to meet these standards. Huh?
  6. The first principle he teaches is “Reserve funds to allow for a few weeks of uninterrupted time for a honeymoon” The second: “Borrow no money” The third: “Be independent of in-laws. Leave Father and Mother. (Don’t live in your dad's storage unit.)” The fourth: “Declare a moratorium on media for the first year. (Don’t be a fame whore.)” The fifth: “Never go to bed with an unreconciled relationship” The sixth: “Seek outside spiritual counsel if unable to resolve a major conflict within one week.” The seventh: “Seek counsel if the wife is unable to attain good sexual release” The eighth: “Have bible study together every day” The ninth: “The husband must be 100% committed to loving his wife. The wife must be 100% committed to being submissive.” The tenth: “The husband is to be head of his wife.” The eleventh: “And the wife see that she reverence her husband.”
Chapter 3 - Choosing to Love
  1. Biblical love is a choice, and it’s called “agape love”. “Agape love” is “unconditional and irrevocable.”
  2. Wheat talks for the millionth time about “leaving and cleaving”.
  3. “The fact is, the Bible gives no indication that the feeling the world calls love is to be the foundation for marriage.”
Chapter 4 - Understanding the Basics
  1. This chapter explains in excruciating detail the importance of understanding the anatomy of the genitals. He says that naming the anatomy of your genitals is akin to Adam naming the animals in the garden.
  2. Wheat refers to the female reproductive system as the “female birth-giving organs”.
  3. There are two very unhelpful drawings of the female anatomy. One is a side view of the internal structures that makes the bowel, uterus, and bladder look like one blobby mass. The second is a “front view” of the internal female anatomy that would leave you to believe your large bowel is one short, straight tube that goes up to your lungs.
  4. The written explanation of the female anatomy is actually decent. The recommendations on pap smears are out of date.
  5. There’s an illustration of “obtaining a pap smear” that makes the vagina look a foot long and doesn’t involve a speculum. The caption calls pap smears “painless”, which isn’t the case when they use the broom that goes into the cervical os. Anyone who goes for their first pap having read this explanation and no other is in for a lot of surprises.
  6. Wheat claims that all of the natural lubricant a female person produces will pool in the back of the vagina and has to be “brought out” of the vaginal opening and clitoris. This isn’t true. The vagina does produce some minimal lubricant during sexual excitement, but the majority of it is produced by two glands that excrete on either side of the vaginal opening. If she isn’t wet at the opening diving for lubricant isn’t going to help anything.
  7. Wheat says the husband will need to apply a lubricant if the wife doesn’t adequately self-lubricate, as if a female person applying lubricant just didn’t occur to him.
  8. Wheat explains the procedure for an engaged woman to stretch her hymen so sex on her wedding night won’t be painful. This involves placing one, and eventually two, lubricated fingers completely inside the vagina, starting 2-4 weeks before her wedding and practicing every day. Can you imagine the Duggar girls going on a special-magical trip to the bathroom each day to prepare themselves for intercourse?
  9. The instructions for the husband to stretch the vaginal opening on the wedding night are to insert three (3!!!) fingers into the vagina, slowly over the course of 15-30 minutes, until all three fingers are fully inserted. He advises this may cause tearing(!!!), and that blood can be stopped by holding a tissue to the torn area. He also advises that if you tear you can still have intercourse, and if that causes more tearing to repeat the tissue procedure, and still you can have intercourse again the next day.
  10. In the illustration of “stretching the hymen” the caption says that this “procedure” can also be done by the physician. Can you imagine one of the Duggar girls set up in stirrups getting her vagina stretched by an old sex doctor for 30 minutes while Michelle holds their hand and coaches them to breathe?
  11. Wheat describes a “special position” to be used on the wedding night to bypass any remaining hymen. The wife puts two pillows under her hips, straightens her legs out, the husband approaches from above, and when she can slowly bring her knees up for comfort the husband “should no longer force the penis in, but allow her to thrust her pelvis…”
  12. His last-ditch option if you just can’t get it in is to apply a numbing cream to the vaginal opening so she doesn’t feel it when you force your penis inside her.
  13. Once you’ve got it in Wheat advises “At the time of first intercourse, the husband should not persist in striving to bring his wife to orgasm with his penis in the vagina. … After the penis is inserted, the husband should have his orgasm quickly, withdraw the penis, and stimulate his wife’s clitoral area gently with his fingers to bring her to orgasm.”
  14. While finally describing what the clitoris is Wheat explains a procedure he does when women have pain in their clitoris during sex: he inserts a metal probe under the prepuce “and the adhesions will be released.”
  15. Wheat is pro-period-sex, stating “The is no medical reason for avoiding intercourse during any part of the menstrual period.”
  16. Wheat advises mothers that virgins can use tampons and they will not cause sexual pleasure.
  17. Wheat has a very progressive view of PMS, saying that “PMS is not a character disorder. The symptoms that occur with PMS do not mean that a woman is weak or unstable or that she’s lost touch with God. These symptoms are a result of physical changes, not of emotional or spiritual weakness.”
  18. The male diagrams are just as useless as the female ones.
  19. Wheat describes circumcision as a “hygienic procedure”.
Chapter 5 - One Flesh
  1. Wheat blames the average virginal newlywed's problems on “brainwashing by the romantic novels and movies that suggested that “it all comes naturally””
  2. Wheat says “In considering buying or building a home, you should pay close attention to having your bedroom and bath as isolated as possible from other rooms. Every master bedroom needs a good lock, controlled from the inside, of course. Every child should be trained not to disturb his mother and daddy when their bedroom door is locked.”
  3. Wheat also says “Under no circumstances should you allow a child to sleep in your room with you, except perhaps a new baby for the first six months or less.” We know the Duggars let their small kids sleep in their room when they’re sick or injured, per the TV show when all the small kids had a stomach bug and when one of the little girls had her tonsils out. The recommendation to move a baby out of the room at 6 months contradicts the AAP, who says infants should sleep in their parent's room for the first year of life to reduce the risk of SIDS.
  4. Wheat recommends low-to-no light during “lovemaking”, saying “the mystery of the body enhances the lovemaking experience.”
  5. Wheat says a bath or shower before “sex play” shows your “mate how important the event of physical unity is.” He goes on to say “Bathing and shaving at night will show love, respect, and an anticipation of closeness.”
  6. Wheat encourages foreplay that involves “caressing each other all over” and that it should never be hurried. “Only lust and self-gratification are done in haste.”
  7. “Experimenting” is allowed. “The union of marriage frees the couple to enjoy their bodies in whatever ways are most pleasing, provided that both are being pleased. Without restrictions (other than selfish acts that hurt the partner or evoke distaste), the couple should feel free to experiment and to “know” each other in the most intimate sense possible.”
  8. Touch the boobies only after caressing everywhere else. “After the preliminary period of stroking the entire body, the husband may enjoy fondling his wife’s breasts, and she may enjoy his caresses and kisses on the nipple area. ”
  9. This guy has a weird obsession with the color of the labia.
  10. Wheat spends a lot of time talking about exactly what happens to the female genitalia during foreplay and sex, like how many times this part increases in size, or what color this turns, and exactly how many seconds this takes.
  11. Wheat advises the young couple that certain positions may cause pain to the wife but “After several children have been born, the tissues around the vagina will be stretched, and the wife will then be more comfortable in varied positions.”
  12. Wheat describes a few sex positions for us. The first is “male-above”, which he claims is “by far the most commonly used and gives the husband freedom of movement plus greatest control of strength and rapidity of thrusting. Most couples consider this the most satisfying of all positions.” Next, he describes the “female-above” where the wife is advised to straddle him, lean forward, and insert the penis “at about a 45-degree angle and moves back on the shaft, rather than sitting down on it.” This position is advantageous because it “gives the husband access to her breasts. He also has free use of his hands to better stimulate the clitoris, if necessary, while they are joined in sexual intercourse. ” On to “lateral” or “side-by-side position”. You’re supposed to start like the “female-above” and then roll over onto your sides so you’re facing each other. Finally, we meet the “male-behind position” which Wheat says is “seldom used but may be tried on occasion” This isn’t the “doggy-style” that you and I know and love, no. This is done with the husband and wife both laying on their sides facing the same direction.
  13. Wheat has repeatedly reassured us in this chapter that the size of the penis has nothing to do with sexual satisfaction.
  14. He describes the female orgasm as “as a momentary feeling of suspension, followed by a sensation of warmth starting in the perineal area and pervading the entire body. Rhythmic contractions of the lower third of the vagina follow.” I guess I’ve been doing it wrong all these years. You guys are getting suspension and warm fuzzies?
  15. Men are advised to do 5 things to “increase the physical intensity and pleasure of your orgasm”. “1) wait at least 24 hours after previous orgasm to allow the body to store a larger volume of seminal fluid. 2) Lengthen the foreplay and excitement period so that the penis can remain erect for 20 minutes. 3) Increase your imagination factor by seeing and feeling your wife’s ecstatic response to your knowledgeable and skillful physical stimulation, which brings her to the point of maximum physical pleasure. 4) Voluntarily contract your anal sphincter muscles during your orgasm. 5) Increase the force of thrusting while your orgasm is in progress.”
  16. Wheat advises you might twitch all over when you cum.
  17. You should be giving your wife multiple orgasms: “As soon as the husband finishes ejaculation, he should begin manual stimulation of his wife’s clitoris, so that she can have repeated orgasms. This is the way the woman is designed! She should not have to ask for this, as the whole sex relationship is a pattern of pleasing each other. This means it is not desirable to change pace by having to ask for something for one’s self. It should be the natural desire of the husband to provide every pleasure he knows of, and the wife may be intensely pleased by this continuing stimulation. ”
Stay tuned for next time when we learn about "Solutions to Common Problems", "The Preorgasmic Wife: Fulfillment Ahead", "For The Husband With Erectile Dysfunction: Fulfillment Again", "The Power of Sexual Intimacy", "The "Perfect" Wife (By Gaye Wheat)", "Planning and Achieving Parenthood", and "Sex During Pregnancy"

What if you can’t find a Christian spouse or girlfreind? And you wanted to start a family but now your to old to? Or if you never find anyone are you to burn with passion for the rest of your life?
It seems like so many girls in my generation and newer are not into the whole Bible or Christian thing?
Should I just date someone then try and convert them it honestly seems like my only way right now?
It’s been 8 years and I still have yet to find a godly girl? I’m kinda losing hope?

2020.11.24 01:48 blister_on_my_dick Crisis averted!

I have found someone who is willing to date me! Thank god. Well, we aren't really dating, but shhh don't tell my parents that. I was this close to them making me drop out! I only have a year and a half left to go, so they have been on my case about getting a husband. I knooow. But, now they are totally convinced I'll get an MRS degree (blech!). I can't wait until I'm free of them. They remind of Mrs. Abaddon, but worse somehow. Probably because I'm related to them and they apy for my school.

2020.11.24 01:20 hotcheeto_queen I've been with my boyfriend (20) for 4 years on and off and I need to know if I still love him anymore. It might be a no brainer, but I need genuine help. No judgement please.

So basically, my boyfriend and I have been together on and off for 4 years. 9 months together, separated for a year and a half, together again for a year, separated again for a few months, then back together 2 years now. During our relationship in the beginning I thought it was what I wanted. Like, I couldnt go without him. I thought he was really the one at some point in time. Come to realize he had been talking to other girls, and seeing other girls. We call each other our first loves, but I dont know anymore. For 3 years he has been dishonest, has cheated, and he hasnt had a single job. He sells weed. Our relationship isnt exciting, I dont get a long with some of his family, and he always ask for me to give him the last of my money knowing my money is limited right now just so he can buy more weed but god forbid i use my own money. We dont go on dates anymore, or do anything fun. I absolutely hate being around him now. Like I get annoyed with him for even just breathing around me. I find myself getting annoyed with him too often, and he makes me very angry. Im very open about what I want and I tell him how I feel and he always says that he will change it but never does.
I dont want to have sexual intercourse with him anymore, I genuinely dont have the sex drive anymore. When we kiss, his lips really feel like a strangers. Like the spark isnt there like it use to be. I havent been dishonest with him as I have told him about the one time I did try to find happiness in someone else while being with him because i never got the attention. Ive been in a relationship the majority of my life and for some reason I feel a change in myself. Like all of a sudden I have commitment issues, like I dont see him in it at all. No kids, no marriage. Then again, I dont see marriage at all anytime soon. I feel like Im missing out on life because i have spent it solely with him every single day. He doesnt like me going out and guilt trips me into staying instead of going out to have fun. I really dont know who I am and i feel like ive lost myself in this relationship. The issue is we got an apartment together and we are both on the lease and i really dont know what to do as it is a 1 bedroom. I dont know if I love him anymore, or what the issue is but I really am dying to figure it out. I dont think I want to be here anymore unless theres fixing that can happen but i think im 100% sticking to wanting to expand and find life and find out how to be alone and meet new people as i never got a chance to. Thank you...

2020.11.24 01:16 waitreallynoreally I (17F)want to date this guy(18M) but he doesn't want to because I am not Christian but he also tells me that he wants to date me. I need advice please.

So I have a friend that was also friends with this guy. The three of us would all hang out and the guy and I got really close. He and I flirted all the time and one day he invited me over for dinner with his family. When I was there we ended up cuddling and making out, leading to sexual things. When I went over to his house he didn't know I wasn't Christian. That night he was spoiling me and he and I were both really happy, he told me not to ever change for him. That he would love me any way I am.
A couple days go by and I was in the phase where I was just very happy. My friend asked him when he was going to ask me to date, he said once the drama ends with another one of my friends. Then when I facetimed him one night he learned that I wasn't Christian he said that he could not date someone with the mindset that I have. All I said is that I don't feel that there is a god looking out for me because of what all has happened in my life. I excepted the fact he didn't want to because I asked some other people that were religious and they said that they don't want to date anyone that is a Christian either.
Yesterday, I went over to his house again to help him with some school things. That again led to cuddling, along with him occasionally squeezing my boob. He kissed me on the head and when I didn't want to go home he pulled me back to him and he held me in his arms. But, I had to leave. When I got home he texted me saying that he was sorry about being so handsy. I wasn't against mad or anything so I said I wasn't fragile. He then said because he knew that I was trying to get over him. Which I was. But then I said that he is probability doing the same because he doesn't want to date me. Then his answer really surprised me, He said "no". I then responded with something like "I thought you didn't want to date me." He responded saying that he does but he just knows that it won't work.
Another day goes by and now it is today. I spoke with my sister about it and she told me to tell him that he needs to figure out if he likes me and wants to date me or if he doesn't and he is going to get over me. He responded with saying that he does like me and want to date me but he knows that it won't work because of how different we are even if I was Christian. My sister and I responded that it was a cop out and just seemed like an excuse. He then replied saying "can you really say that any of those relationships are healthy if those people are really so different.
What should I do? I really like this guy and he is super sweet and caring. This is the only thing that he and I have ever disagreed about except for the religious things. I really don't understand what he thinks is so different but now I am looking for all of your help to figure out what is the best approach. I would really like to date him but I really don't know where he stands with all his mixed signals on text compared to in person.

2020.11.24 01:14 DoctorSherlock1963 I'm a fuck-up. I'm alone. I'm hopeless. I'm worthless. Above all I wish I was dead.

I lost my job after 2 weeks paid leave and 2 months of furlough due to the pandemic. It was a low-paying part time job at a local museum. I was a gallery associate (basically stood in the galleries and made sure guests obeyed rules and all that) and I spent alot of time alone in the galleries with my thoughts. Not always a good thing. I don't miss the job as much as I miss my coworkers. That said, it was still one of the better jobs I've had in my life. I still haven't found another job. I have no idea where I want to go in my life or what I want to do. Don't use your brother as an example to justify my inability seemingly do anything with my life. It doesn't even help a little bit. I made the mistake of majoring in history when I was in college. It isn't a very profitable degree. It serves better as a foundation I've heard. Other than that it's pointless. A $20k mistake. I want to find a job that will pay me enough to live on but those are far and few between and nothing ever comes through. I've just kind of accepted that I probably won't find a decent paying job. I've also been told that I should pursue a master's degree but I can't justify sinking myself into thousands more dollars of debt for another piece of paper and I also don't know what I would major in. I just don't want to get a masters for the low cost of a lifetime of student debt. I've been single since 11th grad (high school, almost 11 years now). That's mostly because I fuck up every potential relationship that comes my way. Every one. Without fail. Once even this year. I couldn't even get anywhere with internet dating. I've just accepted at this point that it's more than likely not going to happen. I see all of my friends moving forward, getting married, moving in together, having children. I'm happy for them but I can't help but hurt bc I know that as much as I may want it it probably won't happen for me. I'll probably never get married or have children. And I can forget ever owning a house. I'll never he able to afford one. I'll be stuck in an apartment AT BEST. If it isn't obvious by now, yes, I am a loser, fuck-up of a human being. I'm God's punching bag.

We’ll need a date and time for the first hour, when Arash Mohomad P******* and James Robert Denke announce this new 501(c)(3), its unique tax status, and the contents already outlined in “Episode 1”.
In a show of solidarity, we’re asking Genevieve Collins to participate in the audit. We’ll invite some bipartisan folks to join the panel she moderates, simultaneously surprising listeners.
Jack Van Wunnik on your floor is the CPA for any tax-specific questions you may have:
  1. This is a new legal entity, structured with existing frameworks commonly known as “trusts”.
  2. Consisting of one (1) trust filed within the legal framework of every country on Earth, this universal Trust (“Trust”) grows into a borderless government by the final episode of the wedding. Its population of internationally recognized, remote citizens proceed to normalize relations with existing United Nations governments.
  3. No one, including its founding team, may participate in the Trust until the final episode, when the Trust is formed. Afterward, any human being may apply to participate in the Trust.
  4. Applicants must pass one (1) stringent proficiency test, for which the Trust and its members prepare them to take. Those who participate in the series are exempt from the test.
  5. Any individual (“Participant”) accepted into the Trust will receive one (1) checkbook, one (1) debit card, and one (1) benefits package, including comprehensive healthcare and retirement coverage. Once activated, these items can be used to purchase any good or service at anytime.
  6. In order to activate the accounts listed above, Participants must access a universal web portal (“Portal”) and complete tax steps 12-15 below. Afterward, Participants may populate their personal folder (“Folder”) with images, audio, video, digital print and other media to document the principal engine of the Trust. As Intellectual property of the Trust, Media files will be timestamped chronologically as permanent, auditable records inside any Folder.
  7. Due to their storytelling nature, Folders may contain significant records of personal, business, travel, and other matters. Participants may not share these contents with anyone other than the Chairman of the Board (“Chairman”) of the Trust.
  8. Participation is life long. After the natural death of any Participant, the Trust will make the entire contents of the aforementioned Folder available for public review. This allows future Participants to explore dormant Folders to match their contents to current Folders. When a match is confirmed, the Chairman will notify one (1) Participant immediately.
  9. Participants may produce up to one (1) film and one (1) book using the publishing and editing software within each Folder. Approved works may be updated and republished periodically. The Chairman maintains sole discretion over which films and books may be shared publicly before any Participant’s natural death.
  10. Prior to being made public, Participant films and books must be approved by a face-to-face meeting with the Chairman. All Participants are required to film and upload any meeting to their Folders for review.
  11. The mission of the Trust is to empower low and middle income individuals to become Board Members (“Board Members”) of the Trust. Only those granted a Chairman meeting, pending confirmation by existing Board Members, may become Board Members themselves. All Board Members share equal voting rights within the Trust.
  12. Participants must submit tax forms to their appropriate local tax authorities (example: IRS Form W-4 for United States Income Tax), claiming exempt status for the period beginning July 20, 2020. Participants must notify all appropriate local, state and federal tax authorities of their exemption.
  13. Participants must also withdraw from social security, pension, healthcare, and dental plan accounts, usually funded through employer payroll. Business-owner Participants must do similarly with proprietor accounts, equivalent to those listed above.
  14. Participants may utilize any and all Trust assets at the Chairman’s sole discretion. Likewise, Participants must assign all private assets (if any) to the Trust. These assets may include banking, brokerage, business and otherwise financial accounts, deeds, titles, interests, certificates, financial instruments, rights intellectual property, and hard assets. Though they work in various professions,
  15. Participants must maintain an annual income of zero ($0.00) to sustain the chassis of the Trust. Additionally, all income must be directed to the Trust in order for each Participant to maintain no-income tax status. Income may include wages, business interest, investment interest, and other passive sources. Inquiries made by local tax authorities, or any other authority, must be directed to one of the remote offices of the Board of Directors (“Board of Directors”); its offices will open in New York City, Beirut, New Orleans, Los Angeles, Seattle, Riyadh, Tel Aviv, Shiraz, Toronto, Split, Prague, Lisbon, Kyoto, Chiang Mai, Kuala Lumpur, Buenos Aires, Cordoba, Lima, Medellin, Bogota, Mexico City, Houston, and Dallas, Texas.
  16. Two cofounders witnessed the creation of the Trust over two (2), consecutive 19 year periods. These are its only initial Board Members, announcing the public formation of the Trust. These initial Board Members are subject to full background investigations, including their private records, business interests, past relationships, careers, and transgressions, to which they admit sporadically throughout the series. Designed to help Participants inventory their own, transgressions are required uploads before additional files can be added to any new Folder.
  17. Both founders accept independent radio station KNON to broadcast ten (10) hours of the details of the Trust, its tax implications, its creation and subsequent storyline. During their broadcast, the cofounders will treat listeners and any questions with compassion and respect. The same will be requested of listeners. Panel questioning will be conducted in a timely, fair manner throughout the series, in order to encourage the fewest, unanswered questions at its conclusion.
  18. In the final episode of the series, each cofounder will execute the formation paperwork of the Trust, which has projected, worldwide Board Membership of only 55,555 individuals in its first year. The cofounders explain this ratio to listeners. Due to the vastly larger applicant pool size, the question Panel may only include those attached to this email or those called with direct involvement in the creation of the Trust’s first Folder. These may include some surprising individuals, including but not limited to: Genevieve Collins, George W. Bush, William J. Clinton, former secretary of Treasury Robert Rubin, former Chairman of the New York Stock Exchange Dick Grasso, former New Orleans Councilwoman Jackie Clarkson, Former Presidential Intern Monica Lewinsky, writers Judy Bloom and Elizabeth Sanders, Patricia Clarkson, Patrick Bateman, Paul Rudd, John Slattery, Benicio Del Toro, John Leguizamo, CEO American Airlines Doug Parker, CFO Southwest Airlines Tammy Romo, chefs Philippe Chow and Rick Moonen, Michael Mann, Gusmano Cesaretti, Wynton Marsalis, Naseer Shamma, Taj Mahal, Alan Braxe, DJ Falcon, Don Vappie, Trent Reznor, select members of Tiger 21, and among others, producer Mark Ellis, aka “Flood”.
  19. The series will be dedicated to Charles C. Bergman, the late Chairman of the Pollock-Krasner Foundation.
Working in those details, Episode 1 will follow the storyline shown in the string below. It may be best read as a disclaimer at the beginning of the series. Thank you Dave and Christian.
This will be great fun.

(“Agape”) in exchange for a live, ten hour broadcast titled, The Marriage at KNON (“Marriage”). Who is the escrow agent. The Marriage will air nightly from 9-10pm CST, during ten nights spanning from October 25, 2020 to November 3, 2020. These dates won't be possible. Do you want 10 nights in a row of a once a week broadcast ? Agape will provide current fundraising and/or profitability estimates for the existing 9-10pm time slots prior to the Marriage broadcast. Any funds raised in excess of two times (“2X”) the existing estimates for current programming during the 9-10pm time slots will be deducted from the amount payable to Agape. For example, if the current programming is estimated to raise $1,000 from 9-10pm on Oct. 25, then any amount raised above 2X $1,000, or $2,000, will be deducted from the $105,000. This incentivizes the Marriage to become more profitable than any show from 9-10pm CST, while still allowing for Agape to experience 2X upside prior to any deduction(s) from the $105,000. There will have to be guaranteed funds to start and a donate as we go arrangement moving forward. Agape is aware of the controversial nature of the Marriage. If for any reason Agape pulls the Marriage off air prior to all ten hours of broadcast, Agape forfeits right to all $105,000. This is simply to ensure the Marriage receives all ten hours of air time. Agape will need to know much more about what is the controversial nature of The Marriage and exactly what the content will be before entering into any agreement.Any programming content will have to conform to the laws of the United States and the State of Texas as well as regulations of the FCC regarding broadcasting and public radio broadcasting The Marriage will be allotted three live, in-studio sets from any artists of its choosing. One of these artists will be the rock band, Acid Tongue. The hosts may refer to themselves as The Prophet (“Prophet”) and The Lion (“Lion”), respectively. A portion of each segment may dial-out via telephone call to certain individuals. Agape will consult as to the best method and/or device to do so, in order to ensure quality audio for each phone call. A few of these calls may be international, and their costs may be added to the Marriage $105,000 payment. An in-studio wedding (“Wedding”) may take place at the conclusion of the final hour of the Marriage, as outlined below. All expenses associated with the Wedding will be paid by the Marriage. After the conclusion of the Marriage, Agape will email an itemized invoice within 48 hours to: [email protected]. $105,000, less any funds raised by the Marriage in excess of 2X projections (plus any telephone expenses) will be paid to Agape within 48 hours of invoice receipt. We will not bill on this arrangement. A non-refundable deposit will be required and the remaining funding recieved as air time is rendered. This is a highly unusual arrangement for us to be considering but we are willing to continue to review this proposal and will be able to make a decision once we have all of the details and our questions have been answered. No decision has yet been made by KNON to broadcast this. Thank You

If something opens up on air, we’ll cut you a check for $105,000 for 10 hours of airtime and offer a personal guarantee that Donald Trump will lose the 2020 election.
Thanks again for your consideration.

Show Dates: Oct. 26-Nov. 3, 2020 Underwriting Target: $105,000 Hosts: Arash and James Episodes: 10
Premise: Why do bad things happen?
On October 20, 2019, an EF3 tornado tore through KNON studios, bringing the station offline. As staff scrambled to broadcast a new signal, questions stirred inside the minds of some folks:
Why? How could the station deserve this? Was it a random event? Was it an act of God? If so, how could God exist and this happen to listener supported KNON?
Enter native Texans Arash and James. Friends since age twelve and former high school debate partners, these men are no strangers to tough discourse. They offer listeners a fresh lens to examine seemingly awful events through an ultra-modern love story:
Episode List (60 minutes each)
Episode 1: “1983” Four days after KNON’s first broadcast, a baby named Natasha was born. An atheist, she inspires the story that James begins to tell, one that he claims proves the existence of God. Arash, of course, doesn’t believe him, but as a non-practicing, Muslim-born man, he agrees to listen to his Jewish friend anyway. Since Arash spent a few of his younger years in examining all religions, he confidently takes notes to debate James, who is clearly in love with Natasha. They agree James may submit any evidence to support his case, including music and concert footage he’s gathered for their friendly debate. As the episode progresses, James sketches a cast of characters and events surrounding KNON’s first broadcast, his first piece of evidence being his own drowning and subsequent resuscitation in 1983. The episode ends with a listener challenge inspired by a Wynton Marsalis concert James attended in France.
Episode 2: “One Set for World Peace” Episode 3: “September 11, 2001” Episode 4: “Inauguration Day” Episode 5: “Acid Tongue” Episode 6: “Miracles” Episode 7: “The Tornado” Episode 8: “Covid-2020” Episode 9: “The Port of Beirut” Episode 10: “The Wedding”
Additional episode descriptions provided by request.
Dave (and Christian),
Thank you for taking the time to meet with James yesterday (and last Friday). We intend to self-promote this series and believe we can raise the donation amount listed above once we get rolling. We are also happy to meet with you to discuss the show in person.
We appreciate your consideration this Oct. 20.
Happy Anniversary, Arash and James (214) -* [email protected]
