In which a group of graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy educations.

Check out Katy Perry's music video for "I Kissed a Girl" on Youtube. She explains the appeal quite nicely too.

It seems to me that the faux-lesbians, which is what virtually all hot young girls who make out with other hot young girls are, love the kissing and making out, enjoying the softness and nice girly smells. But they stop well shy of serious business, the wet and delightfully pungent puss, no?

Posted by: PA on December 19, 2008 2:07 PM

PA, are you complaining?

Posted by: JV on December 19, 2008 2:24 PM

I think faux-lesbians are narcissists, pure and simple. Just as many (not all) gay men are.

I'd saved a link to this website as being a place with some intelligent stuff. Now I find you're posting a link to what basically amounts to a kiddie porn fantasy - the supposedly true, detailed account of two 15 year old girls having sex at a teenage party.

That 15 year-old lesbian orgasm story is a great way to wake me up for the weekend. Thanks.

This confirms something I've suspected, and have other anecdotal evidence for: that by judging what type of woman a woman would have a forbidden fling with, we see what women really think about female attractiveness.

At Roissy's not long ago, Chic Noir was saying how amazingly hot Christie Brinkley is now, while the 18 year-old babe her husband had an affair with was only a 6 or 7.

But who would she rather get it on with? Obviously the young girl, not the gracefully aging C.B.

The author of that post describes how pretty Nikki is, in a way that sounds like any *guy* would find her hot too. Although in public, she'd probably give some phoney-baloney story about how beautiful Christie Brinkley is, when it came time to make out with and go down on another female, it was a tight-bodied pretty young thing who she chose. Obviously because she's better looking.

Another stupefying story from the Banality Brigade. Had me snoozing and skipping. Lucky for me I skipped fast enough, I managed to avoid clunking face-first into my keyboard. Faux-lesbians are indeed narcissists, and narcissists are excruciating bores.

if they'd taken polaroids you'd have an inner post tie-in

Sadly, most of the women in the themed blog were no longer in their natural state :(((

Posted by: Peter on December 20, 2008 9:00 PM

Agnostic, I am all for Christie Brinkly.

Posted by: Chic Noir on December 21, 2008 8:32 PM

Chic, I thought as soon as I read the comment from Agnostic that he was wrong and you would indeed go for CB. Thank you for reminding me that there are indeed women of taste and discernment in this darkening world.

As always, good to see you here. Maybe you can convince Hope to show up as well. Too few women at Roissy's, too few women here.

Sigh. I like women. I wish there were more of them everywhere.

Re. your theme blog: Eeeouw...just eeeouw. I once had a boyfriend with that kink, and my rejection was insurmountable.

Posted by: Lisa on December 21, 2008 11:04 PM

Chic, I am on the case!
