It doesn't exactly bug me, but it feels so nice when it is shaved off. If anything, trimming the hair becomes the most irritating way of dealing with it as it causes my hair to be that length where it becomes pokey and not fun at all, especially during sex. But shaving makes my chest and stomach so smooth and sex is more enjoyable.
I mean the acne doesn't bug me either, it was just strange I would be breaking out right now especially in an area that has never had acne before (or anywhere really for that matter).
Well regardless, I have continued to shave like twice a week, and I think my skin is getting used to it for the most part. I have almost no bumps and my skin hasn't gotten irritated much. As far as the acne on my chest, well it has cleared up slightly, but I mean I am still feeling all this extra physical, mental and sexual energy as I described in my original post so who knows.
Thanks for the response Ineligible.
Yes, I realize how unlikely it is for me to grow at my age, but I certainly have my fingers crossed!
This Tenderskin product is supposed to soothe my skin essentially? Only saw some ads briefly on Google right now, don't have much time to really look into it.
Hey guys been a while since I have posted anything. I just have 2 questions..
1. Last university semester I was really stressed out and ultimately I gained a bit of weight to bring me to about 180 lbs (I'm about 6'00" and also prior to college, I was very active playing in varsity team sports so my weight was about 140-150). After the semester ended in December, I destressed as much as I could by spending time with my wife and son and I tried to exercise a little bit, while watching what I ate of course. My weight burned off extremely quick, 20 pounds in less than 4 weeks. Well 3 weeks ago the spring semester started up again, and I've been feeling extremely active for some reason. I mean even in high school, I never felt this way. I'm always extremely hungry, I am always wanting sex multiple times throughout the day, etc. Since school started, I haven't been able to exercise much yet I am still dropping a pound or two here and there. It seems, however, that as a result, I have gotten a somewhat bad case of acne on my chest. It isn't A LOT, but it is slightly unappealing. I have never had much acne in my life at all especially on my face/back, so this is quite surprising. Could I be going through a growth spurt? I am still only 20 years old, and I would love to grow a little bit taller Nothing to worry about?
2. I have never really been a huge fan of removing hair off my body, I always just considered it a bit time consuming and not really worth it in the end. Well, with this newfound energy especially for sex, I have shaved everything off my chest, back, penis, testicles and anus. I have found that sex is even more enjoyable without all this hair! I'm not a really hairy person, but I am probably a little more hairier than your average Joe, so removing all this hair especially off my genitals has made a huge difference. The only problem, however, is how irritated my skin gets shaving. Occasionally around the base of my penis and the area leading up to my bellybutton I get these small pimple like things which are a little painful sometimes, not to mention a bit unsightly like the acne on my chest If I continue shaving regularly, will my skin start getting used to the shaving and become more resistant to reacting the way it is now? For the most part, everything else I shave on my chest/stomach hasn't reacted badly.. Should I try any other method? My wife and I tried a personal waxing kit on myself a couple months ago, but that became an absolute nightmare for my chest/stomach area, and I would rather die than trying that anywhere near my genitals (the kit worked well for my back though). I wanted to try Nair, however, I read in a couple threads on other forums that they would not recommend trying it on anyone's genitals. I would love to find a consistent solution to this as having no hair is great for everything in general
Well, I probably should have thought of this at first but could my chest acne thing be related to the shaving? After all, I am shaving up there but the acne doesn't appear to be caused by shaving.
Thanks in advance for any comments or suggestions (sorry for the essays)
Well last Thursday, I had two midterms to study for so I didn't sleep the previous night and went through the day without sleeping as well. Then Thursday night, I slept for 15 hours. When I woke up on Friday, I felt very refreshed, however, when the day was coming to an end, my back and neck felt slightly sore like I was working out a bit or something. Then Friday night, my wife and I had sex two times, both of which were pretty rough.
When I woke up on Saturday, I had an unbelievably sore pain in my back (mainly upper) and neck whenever I was standing or sitting. I thought stretching it out and taking some ibuprofen would help and it sort of did. Then like Friday night, my wife and I had sex two times as well. When I woke up Sunday, my pain was just as bad, so I decided to stretch and take some more ibuprofen. Sunday night we didn't have sex but this morning, I still woke up with this pain.
Any ideas what really caused it? The night when I sat in front of the computer and studied without sleeping or the rough sex? I had a slight pain before we had sex Friday, so I'm not really sure what caused it.
Also any suggestions as to what I should do to fix this issue would be great. My wife and I agreed to lay off sex for a little while till my back feels good.
Well I'm quite surprised that she would have even went out on a date and had a kiss with you, because from my experience, most of the female friends I've known who previously has been in a relationship where they were emotionally or physically abused would be very hesitant to go out on a date in the first place, let alone kiss someone that soon.
I would be careful, however. This could be a good sign or a bad sign. I mean if she feels that comfortable with you already that is great. However, she might feel worthless and just feel like whatever and give herself up to you quick, and that certainly isn't what you want if you were looking for something long term.

What was "obvious" when he answered the door??? Does he have a glass door and saw that your wife and son were standing outside?
The doors do in fact have windows on the sides, along with the peephole.
Regardless, coincidentally, my wife called me earlier today because she could hear the neighbors arguing very loudly and she claims that about half an hour later a police officer showed up, handcuffed this guy and took him away. She doesn't know what happened, so I don't know what to say.

Well that is exactly why I thought this situation to be very strange.

I myself carry and when my friends tell people that I don't know that I am carrying a gun, they are shocked, but they are usually more fascinated as to how I am able to hide it. Remember this: gun owners don't carry guns to kill people, we carry them in the unlikely event that something bad will happen. My brother had to draw his pistol 3 times before he turned 21. Most of the time, people run or surrender at the sight of a gun and he got lucky, never having to fire it. 2 of those times he was in "safe" neighborhoods. Many universities are "gun free" zones, but that hasn't stopped people from bringing guns onto campus and adding another "mass shooting" to the history books. That's the world we live in.
Second, you live in Arizona. As an AZ resident myself, I am surprised to discover that you are unaware of the gun laws. Arizona has some of the least restrictive gun laws in the country, and they have been relaxing even more in the last few years. Arizona is an open carry state, meaning that if you are 18 or older and able to legally possess a firearm, you can carry the gun on a holster as long as it is visible to everyone. You can also open carry a rifle (I have seen people with rifles slung over their backs just walking down the street). As of July 29, 2010, if you are 21 and older and able to legally possess a firearm, you can conceal carry a gun without a permit. Arizona is the 3rd state in the country to allow concealed carry without a permit. Go up to Prescott sometime. You almost can't even go to the grocery store there without seeing a non law-enforcement officer carrying a gun on their hip. Some estimates show the number of people that are carrying a gun on their person may be has high as 25% at a given location. This seems abnormally high, but you would be surprised at the number of people that "pack heat" when they are out in public.
I think you need to relax a little bit. "Gun" doesn't mean crime or criminal. It is simply an instrument used for self-defense (should the issue arise) or for sport. The guy may have just been cleaning it or doing some dry-fire practice. As Oldfolks mentioned, for us "gun nuts" it is normal to have a gun in-hand. It is not related to crime, or an unstable mental condition. If you really feel uncomfortable about it, go to a gun store and ask the owner/manager about his opinions on why someone would keep a gun with them. They can explain it a heck of a lot better than I can.
I'm not "afraid of guns" and I certainly am very familiar with Arizona's gun laws. Also, I'm not an idiot, I obviously understand why people feel the need to be carrying guns on them :sleeping: I'm 20, not 2, so I don't why know you're telling me Google "how to hide a gun" or question my understanding of Arizona's laws as if I am naive. I lived in Arizona for 13 years, I clearly know the laws, but I certainly have never seen anyone with a rifle slung over his back. Regardless, if I really felt that uncomfortable around guns in general, I would have moved to a different state years ago.
As I said, I know plenty of people who own guns that live here in Arizona but I have never seen them carry it nor have I ever seen their guns laying around in their own home. The fact that this guy did make it visible that he has a gun at the front door was the strange part. Look, never once in this thread did I question why people should carry guns or why there are guns in the world, nor did I say somebody showing his gun correlates to him being a criminal. I'm just saying that I have never experienced this in my life where randomly a person shows a gun at the door when he obviously sees it is my wife and son.
Either way, I kind of took offense from your seemingly sarcastic/belittling post. Again, I am not 2, I am 20, I CLEARLY know what guns are for. You are answering something that I am NOT questioning. I'll say what the reason again as to why I created this thread briefly:
I have lived in Arizona for 13 years.
I have only seen 3 guns in my lifetime.
All 3 people that possessed these guns ended up in jail or some kind of probation.
I know many people who are part of law enforcement, go hunting, etc.
I have never seen their firearms outside of their homes or in their homes.
This guy shows his gun after seeing that it is my wife and son.
No, I am not questioning why people have guns.
No, I am not questioning why there are guns in the first pace.
I am questioning why this guy felt it was necessary to hold and show a gun in his hand to answer the door to my wife and son.

How ironic that you're still trying to explain to me some kind of forum etiquette when you were the one that incorrectly reacted to my post in the first place.
And I acknowledged I was wrong and explained how it happened. I'm sorry that's not enough for you.Quote:Obviously the other two posters who responded realized I was responding to thor's post which quoted your post as well, but you couldn't make that connection.
You're right. They did and I didn't. I explained why and have moved on. You haven't.Quote:Rather than apologizing, you still attempt to criticize me when I was clearly never in the wrong.
Except for the part where you made a rash decision and assumed the worst about me, namely that my confusion had to be a result of thinking Thor's comment was funny. But how about we let that one go too?Quote:I'm pretty sure when one is replying to a quote that contains multiple quotes, they are always referring to the more recent reply unless stated otherwise.
Sorry, that's not necessarily true. If you were replying specifically to Thor, you could have included Thor's quote and left mine off, or you could have stated that you were replying to Thor.
Look, I acknowledged that my initial response to you was based on a confusion about who you were responding to. I don't have a problem doing that. But you are continuing to assert that my confusion is based on some kind of ignorance on my part. Yes, it's all Damien's fault. Kazak bears no responsibility for being vague. It took two of us to create the confusion.
It might help you to read some of the context (if you haven't already) and pay attention to the parts where I have expressed concern that, since Thor and I have some beliefs in common that others here don't, that I will be lumped in with him at every turn. So I guess I'm on guard for that.Quote:[humor]Or am I replying to both Kazak or damien at the same time right now...?[/humor]
Apparently, even when I change your ( ) to [ ], the HTML god's still don't acknowledge your humor.
How about we get beyond this little tiff and meet somewhere on friendlier grounds.
All I'm saying is that saying "sorry" rather than "still you better learn your matters, because this wasn't me fault" would have been a sufficient post.
Didn't realize it was that hard to type "my bad man" and end of story because thisOriginally Posted By: damienMaybe Damien was confused because you quoted both him and Thor, without clarifying to whom you were responding. And no, Damien rarely thinks Thor's posts are humorous.
That being said, thanks for the clarification. I retract my reaction.
In the future, I hope you do give attention to how you come across to others. Even on a message board. You'll get a better response from people and probably enjoy the experience more (which I hope you'll stick around and do here.) It's a lesson I had to learn myself.
clearly isn't an apology. More like a "hey whatever, lets move along, and by the way, you were still in the wrong" kind of message. Just saying.
