PAC tempting


The new playboy is out this month. The girls of the PAC 10 do an excellent job of showing their school’s finest nipples and ass. There is even a cute kiss between two blondes.

Other highlights include the Sarah Silverman's quote, “I was raped by a doctor, being a Jewish girl it was real bittersweet.”

She’s good. Speaking of the Jews, my boy Steve just informed me I am in his cousin’s bar mitzvah poem. Not only have I never been to temple and certainly never a bar mitzvah, I didn’t even know they made up poems. That’s some cool shit. I may try to swing up to NYC for his big premier.

Back to porn and other “vices,” recently some dude name Kyle has been judging me a lot. I think it’s funny when people judge me because I used to be the same way when I was more into organized religion and needing manmade structures to work their cognitive dissonance of my own mortality.

I feel sorry for people who spend a lot of time judging other people and assuming they’ve got the world by the balls. Even when I make a personal decision, and I consider all the facts, I still miss stuff and find out later I am wrong. I also lack much wisdom or perspective as I feel to truly understand most things in life, you have to be very, very informed or experience them first-hand. I can boast of neither that often.

I would also like to say a little piece about strippers here. I know that they sell ideals and sex and even rub a little close and (GASP) get a guy off. But I really don’t care. I have many friends that are whores to other things (job, relationship, family, school, MONEY) and no one judges them anywhere near as harshly as those in the adult entertainment industry. Why are we so hung up on sex? Who cares? I am quite familiar with studies that find many strippers and/or prostitutes have had a history of sexual abuse. I don’t like that, but I certainly don’t assume that they are wrong for what they are doing because of it.

I just get tired of all these people that look at situations in life and label and judge them when they have no, no fucking clue what is really going on. It’s like those dumb fucks that think Clinton’s presidency was just about blow jobs when they don’t know the first thing about his battle to get the 1993 budget passed of which brought in the beautiful, beautiful nineties.

Back to my BFF Kyle. He said on previous post in response to me calling him lame and previous posts about strippers an: “exotic dancer has no interest in committment, honesty or devotion - 3 unequivocally salutory virtues. those who support them or profit from them are also lax in their love of committment, assistance, compassion and service.”

Look Kyle, when I get a drink at a bar or Whopper from BK, those bastards don’t show any of that shit either. You know why? Because we live in a beautiful market-driven life here is the USA, and people just want our money...and that's okay because we want to fill our empty lives. Furthermore, when I get my Whopper or lap dance, I don’t want their “salutory virtues” anymore than they want mine.

Loosen up brother, have some whiskey or a BJ as your correlation between going to a strip club and being “lax in their love of committment, assistance, compassion and service” is juvenile at best.

I ain't sayin she's a golddigger...but

I'm kind of sick of people complaining about the judgment of others. It has been my experience that this sort of bitching comes from the most judgmental people in the room. Not all honestly expressed opinions are judgments. Maybe it is just that you dont like what you hear? Maybe deep down inside you are judging yourself on some level?

The same commenter, Kyle, was on my blog for a bit, too, when I was starting out blogging as DHD. He was all stressed out that I was an atheist!

While my opinion isn't as strong as mytwocents', I've got to agree with his general point. By feeling "sorry for people who spend a lot of time judging other people," aren't you making value judgments yourself? What makes your's more legitimate (or less depressing) than anyone else's?

Mytwocents: That's fair, I guess. I didn't mean to come across as not judging other people (because that's impossible) I meant more that there is a difference between telling someone their actions are wrong versus having an opinion about something. Not sure if that makes sense, but there was just a time in my life where I remember thinking really mean things about people when i didn't understand anything about them...I hope I have grown out of that and only offer judgement because I actually have something to offer other than silly religous assumptions or generalizations.

SVM: Interesting...and noted

Natty g: I think I am more right because Kyle's points were extreme and illogical. I doubt I am right, but you can be damn straight I am just as depressing (hello have you read this shit?)

I agree with mytwocents and natty g. It appears you are being critical of others who don't share your open-mindedness/indifference. It seems your are displaying the trait you are criticizing, at least in my humble opinion.

Sweet... I've been meaning to get a subscription. Frankly, I think porn is great, and I judge not. A lot of my fellow dancers get their knickers all up in a twist about being compared to strippers, and I just don't see what the big fat hairy deal is (to quote Garfield).

Have you seen Kyle's blog? The guy uses a hyphen like it's going out of style. He also promotes his own book on his blog (you can buy it on Amazon!) - maybe being up on a high horse makes it easier to grab for money.

Don't let it stress you V. People like Kyle don't know what they're talking about. Saying things like "exotic dancer has no interest in committment, honesty or devotion" is like saying "Christians love to tell you how to live your life." Both are equally ignorant and generalize in a useless way. In a country of 280 million, you're gonna get people like Kyle who love to "tell it like it is" (which often is not). Kyle wants you to know that the world would fit in "moral" and "immoral" cubes, nice and neat. He's never really lived. Hasn't seen a person killed in front of him. Or seen famine victims. Or even know whether it's right or wrong that a warlord raises drug crops and sells it for food to feed his village. Kyle isn't worth your time -- he's applying his tiny world view to a problem set he can't even understand.

i kind of agree with mytwocents and natty. i guess i'd just like to say that maybe your past judgmental state was because you had religious assumptions that caused you to view life in a mean and condescending way. (and im glad you arent like that now) but just because others have religious beliefs does not mean that they are full of that same condescension and judging. unless they express it like Kyle - without tact and respect for others.

you can have a group with the same basic values filled with various types of people - same goes for political groups. R's and D's alike have those members that with whom embarrassed to be associated.

elvis,

you accuse me of oversimplifying the truth [ie making a generalization] and then you state one yourself. is the following not an oversimplification of the truth?

Kyle wants you to know that the world would fit in "moral" and "immoral" cubes, nice and neat. He's never really lived. Hasn't seen a person killed in front of him. Or seen famine victims. Or even know whether it's right or wrong that a warlord raises drug crops and sells it for food to feed his village.

you did not respond to my statement. do you really believe that exotic dancers in general are in fact concerned with committment, honesty and devotion?

Kyle,

Live a little longer homes. Then maybe you'll see. I really don't know if all exotic dancers in general are concerned with committment, honesty and devotion. Maybe they have kids to support and don't know how to any other way. Maybe they had different struggles, advantages, etc. Of the one or two strippers I've known, I can say they wanted committment, honesty and devotion. They just got a little side-tracked by life... I made an "accusation" about you because it is patently obvious you haven't seen alot. Yah, the statement was "an oversimplification of the truth?" But maybe if you've lived a little more, you'd forgive a whole lot more.

I have heard society ladies say "act like a lady in public and a whore in bed" (to keep a man), but they never say how they bedded them in the first place. Exotic dancing is an art form. Bully!

elvis,

" I really don't know if all exotic dancers in general are concerned with committment, honesty and devotion. "

is this a concession? are you now backing away from your former statement?



"Of the one or two strippers I've known, I can say they wanted committment, honesty and devotion. They just got a little side-tracked by life..."

'side-tracked by life' - isn't this obscure? what exactly do you mean. is not 'side-tracked' a euphemism for sin?

'I made an "accusation" about you because it is patently obvious you haven't seen alot.'

how so? i challenge you to prove my naivete.

"Yah, the statement was "an oversimplification of the truth?
But maybe if you've lived a little more, you'd forgive a whole lot more."

you seem to be saying that you can alter the truth if your interlocuter is naive. would you stand by that insertion? does the truth change depending on you talk to.


you also seem to be saying - kyle made a condemnation therefore he doesn't forgive. do you really think this is true? can we not condemn sins but forgive the sinner at the same time? did you not condem demi moore's behavior in striptease but forgive her at the same time?

i swear to God that i am forgiving.

ctl,

let's be honest, do you really equate throwing a rock at an adulteress with condemning the tipping of strippers? one of course should devote perhaps five times more of their time towards introspection then to constructive criticism. destructive criticism is rarely helpful if not harmful. i have reviewed my initial comment to circle v and i concede that my wording was excessively harsh and unhelpful. i wrote; "i just read your post on strippers. this confirms my negative opinion of you." a better wording would have been to simply focus on the behavior itself rather than the person.


in any case, circle v, i read one of your old posts back in june which was an open letter to dc bachelor regarding depression. do you not know that alcohol is chiefly a depressant? it does stiumlate you at first but by and large it is a depressant. you have to quit drinking now. no need to elaborate i'm sure others have told you this.

i am faltering, Lord, i
often fail to pray adequately,
and frequently avoid its gruel and razor-pang,
and regularly evade its rough-sweat and effort.

i must be strong, hardened and resolute,
steadfast in faith’s rhodadendra,
focused on virtue’s trophy,
targeting sanctity’s rose.

Essential oils, roots and herbs can be used in a variety of ways to promote healthy living and stress testing. They are used to create natural remedies for treating ailments common to both people and animals, to add flavor to food, to make perfumes and to create environmentally friendly cleaning products.

You do not have to own a garden to tap into the benefits of plants, roots and herbs. A few herb pots located by a sunny window are enough to get you started. Then, all you need are some essential oils and you are ready to go.

For therapeutic purposes, only the purest oils will do. It is possible to be fooled into thinking that you are purchasing a pure oil. Often, a lesser quality blend of several oils is used to mimic the properties of the pure oil. Blended oils are acceptable for fragrance purposes such as for perfuming a room, but pure oils are a "must" for medicinal purposes.

A reasonable guide to the purity of an essential oil is its price. Pure essential oils are generally more expensive. Common oils such as lavender and geranium are much cheaper than frankincense and carnation oil. It is advisable to become familiar with essential oil prices and then rely on this knowledge when purchasing oils from unfamiliar sources. Keep in-mind that you will generally get what you pay for. A price list from a reputable dealer is a valuable resource when purchasing essentials oils.

Usually, pure essential oils cannot be applied directly to the skin and must be mixed in a base oil to reduce their strength. Base oils such as almond oil or wheatgerm oil are commonly used for this purpose. Base oils are generally derived from seeds, nuts or vegetables and allow you to create essential oil remedies that can be massaged into the skin.

So, what do you need to get started with essential oils and natural remedies?

Without a doubt, Lavender is one of the most useful and desirable oils. Not only does it work wonders on cuts, bruises and burns, it also aids sleep and helps with relaxation.

The Tea Tree and Eucalyptus oils are useful for treating a variety of respiratory ailments. These are excellent for the treatment of colds and coughs. They can be massaged into the chest or burned in an oil burner to help clear the airways and prevent congestion. Tea Tree oil is a natural antiseptic and can be dabbed on cuts, bites and stings. It is often used to treat spots and pimples and when diluted with water, acts as a mouth gargle (keep in-mind it should never be swallowed).

Another basic antiseptic is Geranium oil. With its distinctive perfume and pain relieving properties, it is a necessary inclusion when starting out.

Peppermint oil should also be purchased as it treats digestive complaints and may be used in preparations for freshening breath.

For fragrant perfumes and establishing ambience in a room, buy some Patchouli and Ylang-ylang oils. Often combined in scented candles and air fresheners, a few drops of each in an oil burner creates a wonderfully perfumed home. Orange oil mixed with Cinnamon oil is a lovely winter alternative that evokes seasonal, holiday smells. Besides their perfume qualities, all four of these oils have other properties. Patchouli treats eczema and dandruff. Ylang-ylang is reputed to relieve stress, palpitations and high blood pressure. Orange is used in natural remedies for depression and nervous tension and Cinnamon is excellent for warts and viral infections.

The herbs, Thyme and Rosemary can be grown in pots and used when needed. To create essential oils from herbs, stew some large amounts in pure water, collect the steam and cool it. The oil will rise to the top of the drained water and can be collected with an eyedropper. Alternatively, a "flower still" can be purchased to make the job easier. Thyme and Rosemary are both antiseptics and can be used in skin care preparations. They are also delicious when used in cooking.

Lemon oil and fresh lemons will purify water and, when mixed with honey, are effective remedies for colds and flu. Lemon and white vinegar are highly efficient cleaning agents that can be used for domestic cleaning tasks without damaging the environment. Use white vinegar as a natural disinfectant or mix it with water to clean windows and wooden floors. It is also handy to keep a bottle of white vinegar in your car if you swim in the ocean. It will bring instant relief from jellyfish stings.

Citronella oil is perfect in summer to keep the insects at bay. Another natural repellent is Garlic. Fleas will not bite a dog that has been eating garlic, so a few garlic capsules in the dog food are a cheap solution to your pet's flea problem. A soft collar soaked in Citronella will also do the job.

Garlic also helps to promote a healthy immune system when the weather turns cold and viruses begin to circulate. In fact, most of the oils and herbs listed above are effective in helping to prevent many common winter illnesses.

Whether you are looking for remedies or nature friendly products to use around the house, the oils and herbs suggested above should help get you started. You will be ready to make some healthy changes in your way of life!
