I believe that any form of corporal punishment (spanking, hitting, slapping, etc) is wrong and can escalate to abuse. Studies have shown that the use of physical punishment can cause children to be violent (since they are hit at home, they may think it's okay to hit other kids to get their way), and can cause other serious issues. It can also lead to resentment and fear.
Also, I don't believe in the use of harness for children. THEY ARE NOT DOGS!
You can disagree if you want, but this is how I feel.
Another way to prolong it is to watch TV or a movie, as that will create a distraction and may make you lose the erection temporarily. Then, go at it again. Don't watch a sex or porn scene because that will defeat the purpose as it will arouse you further.
I have a friend of mine who has a serious weight problem. He is 19 years old and about 5'9". He appears to be close to or above 200 pounds.
He told me that he drinks water, which is good. He also exercises regularly at the college's Wellness Center. However, his food choices are unhealthy. For example, he will buy two pieces of pizza, a soda, and some form of fried chicken (popcorn chicken, nuggets, strips). He won't go near the apples, oranges, bananas, pineapple bits, granola bars, or anything healthy.
Even worse, when we go out to eat, he will order boneless buffalo wings. This is unhealthy for him because it is FRIED! I will admit, while they are delicious, they are loaded with fat and cholesterol.
Another problem with him is that he only eats TWO meals a day as opposed to the recommended THREE. Skipping meals is unhealthy and can actually make someone GAIN weight because hunger kicks in.
I used to warn him when he was thinking of getting something fried, and he would just get mad at me, and ignore my advice.
We are very close friends, and have been for almost eight years. I know he wants to lose weight, but I see on a regular basis that he does not have healthy eating habits.
I want him to understand what he is doing wrong, but I don't want to lose him as a friend. I also don't want him to die from it. He already has high blood pressure. I don't want his unhealthy eating habits to kill him. We care for each other, and I don't know what I would do without him. He is my best friend.
How could I help him understand the error of his ways without annoying him?
Some points I want to make that were unknown or misinterpreted:
Her and I were friends for a while before we started our relationship
I was unaware of the epilepsy, I didn't find out until about two months into our relationship
I can't be in the house alone with her because of the epilepsy because my mom (I'm 18) doesn't want me to get too nervous if she has a seizure
I have told her twice about the change situation. Maybe I should express my concern again, but stronger than before.
I'm not questioning my relationship JUST because of her epilepsy
I would also like to thank the members who posted advice for me. I'll try to be more tolerant, but I'll be firm with her when it comes to getting too carried away with jokes.
If anyone else wishes to give advice, please read my first post completely.
Thanks again to everyone who contributed!
nesh2007Originally Posted By: joisfun13or does anyone else ever look at a guy's crotch? I know that there was a post similar to this question a couple of days ago, but I was just curious. I know that most guys at my school wear boxers...due to the fact that they are visible 95% of the time, but if I were to wear sweats in public, everyone could see every one of my "emotions," even if they were "sad" ones. I'm saying that...I look at myself at home and even in athletic shorts or sweats, I can see a bulge no matter how soft I am, so why can I never see anything in any other guy like in public? Is it just me? Or am I not looking correctly? There's this guy who goes to my schools who wears athletic shorts all of the time, and he claims to be about seven inches (obviously, he could be lying), but I can never see anything on him? I'm just curious...
I remember this one kid in my Phys Ed class who wore sweatpants (to class) and he had a bulge in his crotch all the time. I don't think it was from an erection; it was probably how the pants fit him.
To answer the first part of your question, I usually don't look at guy's crotches, but if a guy does, it's normal and does not mean he's gay.
What should I do about this? I know it's long, but there's a lot to say.
My girlfriend and I have been together for a year, but I am not sure if I should continue our relationship or end it and just be friends. She's nice to me and we both love each other, but there are a few things that are upsetting me:
1) She doesn't always carry her cell phone on her. It's usually in her purse. I can't leave her a voicemail because her mailbox is full (she never checks her voicemail). I don't want to always call her house phone because one time, her mother had to use the phone and my girlfriend got yelled at by her mother because she didn't want to hang up.
2) She almost never calls me, she'll send me text messages, but I'd rather talk to her on the phone. And her messages duplicate for some reason. If she says "hi," I'll receive the message twice. The texts also get annoying.
3) She lives a half-hour from me, and she can't drive because she has epilepsy.
4) We can't be together in the house alone because she could go into a seizure.
5) She has to go to bed around 9:00pm during the week because, if she gets too tired, she can go into a seizure.
6) I sometimes worry that she'll have a seizure with me, even though I know how to administer her medicine and what to expect.
7) When we go out, she pays for items with CHANGE when she runs out of bills. It takes forever for her to count the change, which slows down us and the people waiting in line. I am considering taking her to a CoinStar machine to have the change converted into dollar bills.
8) She's somewhat immature, and when she makes jokes, she often doesn't know when to stop, which causes her parents to correct her in front of me (if her and I are with one of her parents)
She DOES have good qualities, though:
1) She's nice
2) We have a lot in common
3) She has a good sense of humor, even if she does go overboard
4) She's pretty and cute (and has beautiful eyes)
5) Her family (mom, dad, and younger brother) is very nice to me and are not overprotective of my girlfriend
6) She likes to cuddle with me
7) She was a wonderful date to my Senior Prom
8) She likes to play games (I don't mean sexual)
I really don't know what to do. Part of me wants to break up with her and look for someone else. Am I the only one who has doubts like this?!
What do you think I should do?

We need a sarcastic, rolling eyes smiley on this board!
Like you, I went in Kindergarden. I didn't give a shit about the uniforms nor the school. Don't have much memories of that time anyway.
Haha, good point about the smiley there! Anyway, one of my mom's co-workers went to Catholic school and graduated high school (Catholic also) a few years ago. She said she misses wearing her uniform because she didn't have to decide what to wear each school day. Me? I'd rather figure out what to wear than wear the same thing that about 400-some other boys are wearing. Trust me, I looked like a DORK in my uniform !
nesh2007Originally Posted By: flyer_fI think there's a huge variance among guys. I haven't seen very many (7 of them), but just out of those seven, there was small/medium/large/huge/thick/flat-shaped/skinny/smelly LOL.
So, I'd say anything goes, all are fine. It's the same thing with guys' kneecaps -- many different shapes, but they all function.
Interesting video. flyer_f, you're right. All are fine. I think some guys get too worked up over their penis. They think it's too small, or it curves too much, or something. Having a smaller penis doesn't make you any less of a lover. Interestingly, a person with a small penis while flaccid (non-erect) will have a larger increase in penis size during an erection than someone with a larger one.
I don't know about you folks, but I find it offensive when people say, "That's so gay!" when they mean stupid/unfair/crazy/etc. I'm not gay, but I still find it hurtful.
When I hear someone saying that, I turn it around so it goes like this:
PERSON: Oh, our school's so gay!
ME: Our school is homosexual? I don't think the building has a sexual orientation.
How do you feel about this?
nesh2007Originally Posted By: munchyyIt's really normal in Ontario. You can go to private Catholic (Where you have to pay), or just normal Catholic schools, which are governmentally funded I believe.
I went to a Catholic school from kindergarden - grade 8, and there was no uniform requirement (Not at any of the Catholic grade schools I've seen). They also all had Special Ed. classes (I don't know much more though as I didn't take any).
I went to a Catholic highschool aswell, but we did have to wear uniforms.
Neither of the schools I attended were stricter than normal schools aside from having to wear a uniform in highschool. It was just a golf shirt with a logo and khaki pants, not bad at all.
It is probably different in the U.S or other countries though.
Interesting. In the United States, almost all Catholic schools have a uniform policy and they are funded by tuition, while the public schools are funded by taxpayer dollars. I wish the Catholic schools here were like the ones in Canada, because I think uniforms SUCK!
Who here went to Catholic school? Did you like it? I went for my kindergarten year and then went to public school afterwards.
I had fun in kindergarten, but I didn't like wearing the uniform. It was uncomfortable (not to mention dorky: a button-down and tie) and the minute I came home, I would change into regular clothes.
I believe I received a better education in public school because they are not extremely strict, and because I was able to receive Special Ed. services for Math in third grade (Special Ed. services are usually not offered in Catholic school).
