34: ROFL

Since the official record has disappeared, I'm not sure if my last thoughts were captured or not, so let me say this in response to LB:

I guess I can't win. I was called an asshole, and when I accept that it may well be because it's true, this is cause for further suspicion...

The fact that my comments provoked such an intense response obviously says something about me - something not positive. I can get reflexively defensive about it or I can be open to the possibility that I was wrong and/or that maybe I'm an asshole. I've tried to clarify or walk back a bit of what I've said; I'm sorry if this didn't come across as contrite enough.

I can't own up to everything that has been ascribed to me, because I don't think it was necessarily a fair representation of what I said (and I know some of it was not representative of what I *meant*). But I can accept that I was wrong and/or obnoxious.

This leaves me perplexed, though, as to why you think it's impossible for me to have changed my mind (without ascribing ulterior motives) as a result of that thread. If you don't think it's possible for someone to genuinely change their mind through discussion, then what is the point of having them except for show?

40: I didn't say it was impossible for you to have changed your mind -- I said that being willing to walk away from something you said that was pissing people off in a manner that made it clear that you weren't continuing to endorse it (assuming it wasn't something you were committed to and willing to fight about) was an important quality in not being an asshole. And further said that saying "when I say group of women X are sexually inhibited, I don't mean to say that's a flaw" is unconvincing, along the lines of "I just said you're ugly. I don't know why you're so upset, after all, you are ugly. Nothing wrong with that."

But the latter point is about continued infelicitious phrasing, and I'm sure you didn't mean it as badly as it sounded.

If you thought through and reconsidered some of the stuff you said, that's great. That's most of what anyone needs to not sound like an asshole. I do think it's a fair argument for the value of B's approach to these conversations, as one tool among others, that it had that effect.

55: That's actually pretty true.

Just because I was an asshole does not exclude the possibility that others were too. Faced with that same reaction, say, a year ago, I would likely have dug my heels in and been a bigger asshole than I was - so I don't think it's a particularly convincing way to engage somebody.

And, in deference to those who want me to shut up, I'll make this my last comment (without meaning to discourage further reply or disagreement). But I just don't think saying some people are more open sexually than others is a disparagement, nor anything like saying "I'm sorry you're ugly". That's certainly not how I mean it. I also accept that my impression may a) be unique or mistaken; b) may well be a reflection on me, and how comfortable I make someone else feel about sex (with me).

I'm not meaning to chastise you, or anything, just continuing to talk about the meta issues. Who cares if it's the most convincing way to engage anybody? You waltzed into the conversation, and were kind of an asshole. (No hard feelings and all that, just reacting to your initial series of posts.) At that point, we're either in a place where it's just fine to be an asshole, or it isn't. If it isn't, you get banned as a troll, and the polite conversation goes on in your absence. If it is, then someone being an asshole back in your direction isn't out of line at all.

I think everyone I've slept with since I started the blog was told about the blog. Ogged is a big ... chicken.

Your blog is a little different in tone than this place, though. (Different, but both have exactly equally moral/intellectual/literary value -- I love you both exactly the same!!)

If you felt confident that someone could get a pretty accurate, genuine sense of you from your blog, then that's one thing. If you thought the blog could give a distorted picture of you as a total person, you might quite reasonably want the person to have a more rounded picture of you before thinking the blog summed you up.

From 109, I'm glad to see this got one star, for several reasons:

My erect penis is about average(7 inches long by 2 inches diameter) but the extra room allows for nice movement giving my girlfriend and me great sex.

116: for what it's worth, it's apparently not that hard to roll a normal sized one over something bigger than you are, so that's why I chose `incompetent'. Of course, lack of experience suggests incompetence (at that task). It's not a bad thing. You aren't born with an innate skill at fitting condoms.

That wasn't actually what I was going for, but that may be true, too, especially at the start of a relationship. I think it's still generally accepted that you don't divulge every gory detail of your life story on a first date. (Though, if there's one thing this blog has taught me, it's that people observe rules of dating that I have zero clue about.) If your blog is fully accurate and complete, then what a great way to ruin the process of mutual discovery with a new prospect when s/he can just click through.

I was thinking more that one's blog might be a reasonably accurate but limited representation of it's author -- I am guessing Ogged's persona here is a genuine reflection of the real Ogged, but probably caricatures certain qualities for their entertainment value.

I don't really get the obsession with cock size. I mean, sure, there are nice things about a large penis, but it's hardly a guarantor of sexual satisfaction. Slightly smaller proportions actually seem to allow for a bit better maneuverability, which can be rather useful, IMHO.

It's not that I don't get the concern about size at all, but the 'more is better' attitude displayed in the Magnum XL reviews seems off. I have, and friends I've talked to have, run into uncomfortably large, which has its drawbacks. Like everything else, there's a golden mean.

On the veldt, the men liked to boast, from which conjecturally-derived factoid we must conclude that there were competitive reproductive advantages to the practice of boasting. From their primitive rituals of show-and-tell has developed a highly complex system of male bragging rights, the further refinement of which has been greatly enabled by the rise of the internets, which system of communication allows for a framework of comparison that is all but completely abstracted from an original, and all too material, referent.

Some condoms are oddly shaped. Despite being absolutely in the middle of the normal range, there was one brand I found difficult to wear as the rubber ring at the base was so tight it was damn near cutting the circulation off. I'd imagine someone of even moderately large proportions would have found that brand impossible to wear.

re: 145

Someone I know of is, allegedly, of such large proportions that he finds it difficult to find a partner who can accommodate. So much so that sex is apparently a depressing and difficult experience for him. I heard this story from two of his ex-girlfriends, who were discussing it, not from the man himself. So I can only assume it was not bragging or bullshit.

I never had a sex ed class, nor a sex ed teacher. But I did have Sr. Shannon. "But Sister, what if I forgot my [rosary] beads at home?" (oh, we loved the "what ifs"...we meant to work the logic of the catechism if we possibly could). "You've got your fingers, don't you, dear?"

(Sr Shannon was a lovely person, though. She truly worried about girls' self-esteem, even if her responses to various contemporary dilemmas were a tad bit out-moded and old-fashioned).

I had an awesome sex ed teacher (summer school, since I went to Catholic school during the school year) who got up on her desk to show us the position women had to take for an ob/gyn exam. She also made a point of saying, "so guys, you might want to think about what women have to go through in order to be sexually active."

I never had a sex ed class, nor a sex ed teacher.

Two memories of sex ed stick out - one funny, the other sad.

Gr. 8, the girl behind me was called upon to read aloud a passage about conception, which read something like: "and in a moment of great love [this was a Catholic school] the man places his penis in the vagina, and deposits his seed to conceive a living organism". Except instead of "organism", the girl said "orgasm"...

Gr. 9 (this was 1984): our phys ed teacher skimmed over the AIDS part of the STDs, because it was then called GIDS (which I'll leave to your imagination), and he didn't think there were any queers in our class...

As long as we're talking about music, I have an ignoramous question. Someone just recommended to me "The Duke Ellington song 'Freedom.'" I did a quick browse and there seems to be a lot under that general heading, maybe even an entire concert (?).

I have a very mainstream (okay, hazy) notion of his music. Is this an actual song title? Was the person confused about the musician and/or the name of the song? Is there one canonical version that I will recognize as soon as I hear it?

"Don't ever let him tell you it doesn't fit."

B has said this before, and it's simply not true, and it betrays a ridiculous inability to empathize.

Does wearing too-small latex gloves impair your comfort and even, thanks to impaired circulation, your ability to perform basic tasks? Well then, a too-small condom is much worse. Why wouldn't it be? Try imagining.

well, what does "fit" mean?

A 240-pound man could squeeze into a size-S t-shirt. Does that mean it fits?

That sex-ed woman's point was "if a guy tells you he can't have sex with condoms of a certain size, he's lying." But that is totally false.

232: My empathy's fine, weenie. My empathy for your weenie is fine.

In the context the advice was given, with a bunch of 13-year-old girls who aren't sure about sex, as advice intended not to let them be pressured easily into sex without a condom ("No, I don't have one, baby, they don't fit me" as opposed to "Then let us as mature young adults proceed to procure one that fits from the variety of options at our local pharmacy"), I think it's just fine.

Otherwise, my general opinion is that condoms suck and one of the better parts about being married, monogamous, and not overly paranoid about accidentally making a baby (I'm on the ring, but we're not doubling up) is that no condoms are necessary!

241: the claim was `we physically couldn't get it on', not `it was uncomfortable'. The small tshirt analogy is a bad one. Plenty of people just can't fit into a size small shirt without ripping it. A standard sized condom, on the other hand will fit over your head.

I totally understand the too tight for comfort issue, though I think it has more variables than just the dimensions (i.e. sensitivity of shaft). There are also potential issues with positioning at the base. This are both rare.

As far as the sex-ed woman goes, she's going to see thousands of teenage boys with stupid ideas about sex, condoms, masculity, and the size of their own cocks for every one she sees who will genuinely have difficulty with standard condoms. So it's probably a good policy.

Once, when I was doing student congress debate in high school (yeah, yeah), a speaker from a different school, speaking on I can't remember what issue, opined in the two following wise, in the course of one and the same speech:

A. Asking a dude to wear a condom during sex is really just too much, because everyone knows that condoms ruin the feeling.
B. In his opinion, if you can get a crying baby to quiet down, by what means soever, you're doing a bang-up job as a parent.

He had a kind of loutish aspect, I can't deny. I can't remember what points these claims were supposed to support.

Young people believe a lot of stupid things about sex, the one that breaks my heart and takes the cake for me is the patient of a doctor friend (as I think I've mentioned here) who insisted she couldn't be pregnant, because when she had sex, the semen all ran out. So the visual of a condom being stretched over someone's arm I'm sure was helpful for some girls who were, we can presume, starting with next to no knowledge about how anything actually works.

"No, I don't have one, baby, they don't fit me"

i can see the necessity to make sure girls don't fall for this crap.

but really, so what if it can fit over your fist? that means it's suitable for every penis? that's a terrible leap of logic.

not to brag, but this exact thing has happened to me, but in reverse. i did not carry condoms because i wasn't expecting anything to happen, and was at her place. i hadn't had sex, only oral sex. somehow it appeared that we were logically progressing toward intercourse. she had some condoms, and i tried to put one on and it was too tight. she didn't think that was plausible, but she said "i guess we could do it without one...i'm taking the pill regularly...i'm sure you don't have any diseases..." but i couldn't do that either, having phimosis.

she thought i was chickening out with a lame excuse.

not overly paranoid about accidentally making a baby

This is a very textured place to be in. I'm in it right now, employing the same BabyAway system as 242. It mixes the needle fear of "I want to be me! A baby would really fuck that up" with the mellowing realization that "I wanna stick around with this person, I do want to reproduce, and people do continue to exist with children"; in the distance, the gathering clouds spell "It would suck to be old and just getting started on this, wouldn't it?"

For the sake of young men and young women alike, perhaps rather than showing how the condom fits over a fist, the teacher could just say, "And don't let him tell you it doesn't fit -- look at the wide variety of sizes and textures available from your local drug store or online retailer."

And the condom fitting over a fist does make sense for 'don't let him tell you it doesn't fit without trying it -- he's going to be able to get it on'. Someone with known fit issues should be carrying a brand they can tolerate, and if they're not, being sure they can't tolerate yours is likely bullshit.

Yes. I guess the only upside of this is in economy of scale: There aren't enough men whose penises are deviant enough in diameter to require a large-fit condom for comfort to make up a big enough market to support production. But with loads of deluded folks, they can sell enough. Mostly it's harmless and gives their ex-girlfriends something to laugh about amongst themselves (something I've witnessed on several occasions).

Length is a seperate but somewhat related issue, but honestly if you are long enough that you can't roll one down far enough, you're long enough that some women will have difficulty with that (ah, the joys of mismatched anatomy) so you're going to need to be careful of that, too. I guess certain shapes are more likely to roll up, too.

"It would suck to be old and just getting started on this, wouldn't it?"

There are drawbacks (stamina) and advantages (patience). And LB is 100% correct that there will *always always always* be multiple reasons why any given time isn't the right time to have a baby, because there just ain't nothing convenient about it.

And what Cala said in 281. Putting on the condom and then saying "Ow, this isn't going to work" is perfectly reasonable. But claiming beforehand that you know it won't fit would be obnoxious (if, pace IDP, such a claim has ever occured) unless accompanied by "But this brand works."

Another thing surprised me about spiro t and george:

I would have guessed that most people tried one of the damn things on before ever doing it in front of a girl --- if for no other reason than to avoid the sort of incompetent fumbling that might suggest you haven't a clue what you're doing.

Allowing for a genuine discomfort issue (not being able to actually get it over your cock is not really the condoms fault) you would pretty much figure that out at the same time.

I originally came in because oudemia was expressing skepticism about there being any real difference between brands/modalities.

There is a BIG difference between possible and actual condoms, let me assure you.

283: It does, indeed, sound like a drag.

(Question: I have no idea if virgin boys do this, or really if it would be a sensible thing to do. But do boys experiment with putting on condoms before trying it out under real-having-sex-with-someone-else conditions?)

283: Well, brands really. And the question was in good faith. It wouldn't have surprised me if the condoms advertised as XXL EXTREME SECRETARIAT or whatever weren't in fact different from regular old Trojans. But apparently they are.

actually, i did. i thought it was normal for it to be uncomfortable.

but then in the moment...i realized it was just TOO uncomfortable to allow me to enjoy anything.

I'm quite sure I never put one on before immediate use; how naively trusting of me! What if it hadn't fit?!

There was no explicit sex education in my public high school in the sixties. Health class talked about what were then called venereal diseases, with pictures of chancres and descriptions of symptoms, but were hazy on transmission details. I'd say it was implicitly abstinence-only.

And perhaps in a perfect world they'd all fit the boys for condoms and equip the girls with little kits full of options just in case. But maybe not; if a teenager gets the message 'no sex without a condom', that justifies a minor overgeneralization. Statistically, you're not all that likely to contract an STD from one encounter, especially once you factor in things like your social circle, how well you know the person and their history. But that doesn't mean we should tell teens to calculate the odds before deciding whether to use a condom.

286, 289: I was never particulary concerned about not appearing like I didn't know what I was doing, because, well, I *didn't* know what I was doing, and it never would have occurred to me to pretend otherwise.

Come to think of it, I did try things out a few years before the incident in question, but apparently I grew a bit in the intervening years.

293: they are, but not actually a lot. There just isn't that much variability in human male physiology.

I suspect variability in shaft sensitivity is responsible for most of the problems, not actuall size.

Also, it's easy to realize how much of this is largely bullshit when you consider how many `extra small' condoms you see on sale.

There aren't enough men whose penises are deviant enough in diameter to require a large-fit condom for comfort to make up a big enough market to support production.

Ridiculous; if one in 40 American males is "deviant enough in diameter", your market is a couple million people.

I prefer rappers whose words I notice. Aesop Rock, for example. Or Ludacris. Or Fabolous. Basically, you've either got it or you don't.

I keep hearing about how some Ghostface song tells a great story of underworld chicanery, and I listen to it and by one minute in I've forgotten what the song is supposed to be about, it just sounds like random words like all his other songs.

The Wu-Tang rappers are all pretty deep in the vernacular register, and GFK especially so. If you can't follow the idioms, I can see it being hard to understand what he's saying.

I just don't notice the words. It's just something about GFK's voice, it gets lost in the type of beats he usually gets -- it's like everything is said at the same pace and whatever's supposed to be emphasized is not emphasized any more than anything else.

GFK's verse on Plastic Little's "Crambodia", though, I can understand that.

It's not true of Raekwon, I can hear the lyrics when he raps. But he's not supposed to be a genius.

I'm mad enough to have a an old mix that is just variations of one song: You're A Mean One Mr. Grinch.

I am pretty sure on who plays on what track. There are a few tracks where I'm not so sure and those have a question mark. The artists are there, but I'm not sure on which track.
