RE: Ranting corner
As I may have mentioned once (or a dozen times), I've been struggling with a particularly dumb book over the last month or so. I finally finished it today (still need to edit it, but...) and am proud to announce the winners of the Dumbest Sentence competition:

3. "Spirals of bliss twisted in my loins"

2. "His mouth was molten bliss, tongue a sinuous brand"

There are lot of other, unimaginably idiotic sentences, but for sheer concentration of vacuousness per centimetre and compacting as much stupidity in as little words as possible, I think this pearl of writing takes the palm

1. "He sheathed himself to the hilt."

(yeah, she's talking exactly what you thought she was).

Let's what new heights of moronism the publishing house has lined up for me next.

I see, women don't watch porn, but they seem to enjoy reading the shit out of it. It's almost worse than porn since porn doesn't even attempt to hide its shallow values and demeaning objectification. This horseshit is sappy, uninspiring, and unrealistic. Men construct unrealistic expectations through porn, women through vampire romance novels.

I was making broad generalizations of both parties. I avidly watch porn, but not as a model for how to conduct relationships or sexual activities, but I know many men who do. The rabid fan base for sappy vampire romance is the female equivalence of those men. That was my point. They should be treated as fantasy and escapism for the purpose of pleasure and nothing more.

The fuck? ... Blink ... the fuck? ... Blink ... I watch porn 'cause my Doc says I need to crack one off regularly to protect my old man prostate and the research seems to back him up. ... But using it as a model for relationships? ... the fuck? ... Blink ... "Hey Sue why don't you invite the pizza delivery guy in for a threesome?" ... the fuck? ... Blink

I have low faith in humanity for such reasons. Drinking Beverage

But then I talk about ass beating and I feel ok again.

Vera, what is your coping mechanism for having to translate such stale garbage?

If I may make a recommendation.


At the next possible opportunity GTFO of there, and with your resignation include; "For the sake and honour of all literature past, present and future; Stop this foolishness and never approach a book or text document ever again."

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

You were being humorous about employing broads? That's very sexist of you. No

It was just a fucking apple man, we're sorry okay? Please stop the madness Laugh out load
