oh god, I want to come again into the [sex thread]

I'm actually surprised the first Sex thread got to 100 pages so quickly. We were we all a bit, er, premature?

Is everyone ready for round 2?

Are we going to go for the second ride?

Can we do this multiple times?

Okay, that's enough of the second/multiple times jokes. I really don't have much else to put into an OP other than to continue the discussion from the last thread.

the last couple pages we were talking about what attracted us to someone.

For me personally, I'm a boobs guy. I don't like them too big, but I don't like them too small either. That kind of gets me interested, but after that, it's 90% about the personality. I don't care if she's the most gorgeous person I've ever seen in my life, if she's dumb as a post it ends there. For me, there is nothing that is more of a turn off than someone who's IQ is the same as their bra size.

Oh god and the eyes. My last girlfriend had eyes I could stare into forever. I'm not even really sure why. But I could just look at them all the time. That's never really happened to me before, was never really into the eyes before that.

    The ass, man, that's where it's at. It doesn't have to be huge, but flat is definitely not okay. Something nice and round, not too soft but not too firm either. Basically, it should be easy to grab and pleasant to squeeze.

    Boobs are nice, but honestly I'm fine with whatever a girl has up there.

    Nice legs are a plus, preferably toned with some muscle definition. Women who play tennis or run track are my benchmark.

    In general I think sexual attractiveness will always be associated with health. Some part of the brain just makes you attracted to someone who could bear children or provide for you (in a primitive he has muscles kind of way).

    Also, facial structure is of importance to attractiveness. For example, if a girl has more estrogen she will develop a more rounded face, which guys find more attractive. These women are generally more fertile (because of their higher estrogen levels) so it makes sense men would be more attracted to them from an evolutionary perspective.

    Personality shines through in the end though. A genuine smile goes a long way.

    Yah, the eyes have it.

    I like all different kinds to be honest, there isn't really one type that attracts me. My GF and I often joke that I'm like an evolutionary safety net- if you ever needed to repopulate the earth, I'd be totally okay with whomever made it.

    For the guy that said he was once attracted to someone for headphones in the last thread: A sense of fashion or just wearing something eye catching/interesting can totally go a long way. A girl that normally wouldn't look good can look really hot just by dressing interesting and catching your eye that way. It also shows a sort of sense of confidence if they can wear really out there things, and I kind of like that too.

    One body thing that really gets me going, but isn't something I could necessarily see on someone I may just happen upon in a public place: the tummy. Putting my hand on a girl's nice, flat tummy really turns me on. There's just something really sexy about that area. I think it's mostly the anticipation and excitement that I could just slide my hand right on down and get going with things.

    That's very true. Nothing turns me off quicker than a very pretty girl who has a superiority complex about it. The line between confidence and jackass gets crossed on both sides with alarming regularity.

    Would it be fair to say what you really enjoy then is the anticipation/foreplay of sliding your hand down a girls tummy?

    I totally enjoy kissing/touching that starts innocent and heads towards genitals, both giving and receiving. There is no wrong way to do it but I like slowing down as I'm closing in. Anticipation can drive people wild, another sure sign that sex is mostly in your mind.

    I agree that someone who is confident and into it (and you) is totally hot.

    I like bellies too, because they're usually one of the smoothest/softest parts of a person's body. Unfortunately many women have a complex about their belly-area since it's a natural repository for fat on females.

    I never did understand why some people seem to think that a person can only be attracted to a certain body type/hair color/eye color/etc. People can be all over the map, and while they may have an ideal body type, that doesn't mean they wouldn't be attracted to someone with a different body type. It's a really, really annoying insecurity.

    Yeah, I never really noticed that girls tummies do actually get somewhat bloated at that time of the month until I talked to a girl who was self conscious about her tummy. So glad I'm a guy.

    There's a different between "This attracts me" and "I can't be attracted without this" - the former is just something you find hot, the latter is getting into fetish territory.

    They might tell you they are only into blonds, or only into petite/Asian women or whatever, but most of them will admit to being very attracted to beyonce if you push them.

    I'm aware of that. I've just never found a great way to communicate that when dating someone with those insecurities. Or at least found a way that effectively got the point across.

    The correct answer is to smack said ass. Smacking said ass is flirty and implies sexual interest. And at the same time....you didn't say a damn thing.

    Maybe I'm odd, but I always found that the music and movies that a girl is into will make me far more attracted to them.

    Personalities != favorite band,
    He might think they are cute because they are confident and have interesting personalities which they try to portray through their clothing/piercings or what have you, but If I take a random girl and put her in a T-shirt saying "I like ___ band" he won't find that attractive at all.

    We have finally assembled our All Star Team for Legend Of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures, and like the Planeteers our membership spans the globe. We did run into a snag initially, but it's not really something I want to talk about.
    Many people attend E3 by proxy through me, as I will go and look at specific things for them and then report back. Quite a number of readers were curious about Dawn of War, Relic's RTS based on the Warhammer 40k universe, and when I did not put it front and center they feared the worst, some even going to so far as to suggest that I had been corrupted by the forces of Chaos. Just to get it out of the way, fear is the last emotion you should maintain regarding the progress on Dawn of War. The reason I haven't gotten to it was that I spent several days in the post walking through the Nintendo booth, as I had grown somewhat angry that their offerings this year were being dismissed as inconsequential. Of course, then the Xbox fans took me to task for focusing on their sworn enemy, so I had to redistribute the affection. And, right on cue, the Sony Army made their will known on the subject shortly thereafter. I'm going to reclaim my front page now and cover topics which are of interest to me personally. I feel confident that you will be able to find information regarding upcoming releases for the dominant console in the market elsewhere. Here, we're talking about Dawn of War.

    I was not sold on the game initially. Like many other unreformed dorks, what I refer to in my internal nomenclature as Mark Ones, the fact that people keep taking Games Workshop franchises and making them Real Time when there is already a perfectly viable, world famous turn-based system causes me to howl with rage. For me, the thing that brought me over initially was how much their entire execution says about their respect for Warhammer. From the little grots sleeping on their watch atop the ramparts of an Ork stronghold to the Squad of Space Marines praying to the Resource Points, the balls of random junk the Orks fly in from offworld to build their structures to the inclusion of the absolutely critical Morale system, this is anything but a license cash in. They didn't have to let us customize our own Chapters of Space Marines or any other side, creating our own banner graphics for the model carrying the Standard and generating wholly unique color schemes.

    The other reason I did not reserve a place in my heart for the game was the screenshots really didn't do anything for me. It wasn't that they were terrible, they looked pretty much like the figurines. But when your models are on the table, it's easy to imagine the battles that are taking place - and they're not static or staid. Yes, it's turn based when you play it on the tabletop, but I have always had the sense that they were about to move, that when I turned my head the Emperor's will was being done back there. Please let me emphasize to you that screenshots are possibly the worst way to experience this game. Dawn of War has the most dynamic combat of any RTS I've ever seen. It isn't just the "blowback," imagined so well in Lord of The Rings, where with a single swipe from a unit of great size or power can send infantry flying. Massive demons with axes can snatch up an Eldar, pop him up in the air, and bring his axe across the limp body like a Louisville Slugger. I saw too many examples of this to name - units grabbing other units and going through almost revolting custom kills, smaller units that enact nearly ten second custom attack animations against larger foes, to look at the battlefield in Dawn of War is to see hundreds of units with considerable size variations, with many completely custom interactions. A few units on each side going "pew, pew" with their far future ordnance would have been enough, but they're trying to do it right.

    Speaking mechanically, the reason interactions like these can work is that you do not create individual units and then group them. Space Marines were the example they showed us, so that's the same I'll use here: a Squad can be created at a barracks or delivered from orbit in a Drop Pod, but it is actually multiple units - five, if memory serves. They move and fight as a single entity, and the game keeps track of it, so when these special attacks I was talking about come into play the game doesn't make a big deal of it - the Squad just loses a model. What's more, now that you have your squad there, you "create" units to the squad - want a Heavy Bolter in there? Each Squad has it's own build buttons down at the bottom, new guys can be produced on the fly, and when they're ready they appear with their brothers. There are no resources, at least, not ones you gather in the classic sense - points around the map are captured and produce a stream of points for you to do with as you will.

    RTS is not my genre of choice, but they have proven that the spirit of Warhammer 40k can survive the transition. Keep an eye on the official site, Relic News, or DOW Planet if what I've said caught your attention. It's hard not to be excited about it once you've seen it in motion.

    (CW)TB out.

    that's how to ration the poor
