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.

R-Rated Linkage

Dear Blowhards --

* What makes for the perfect female behind?

* Yes, fellas: it apparently is possible to be too damn big.

* Quinn Martin has excellent taste in quirky-girl actresses.

* Escort/model Alexa Di Carlo takes questions: part one, part two, part three.

* LA-based photographer James Christopher has a fresh way with nudes.

You all know what's the very first question I'd ask Alexa.

Having just downloaded and watched the complete 2000-2008 Victoria's Secret Fashion Shows, permit me to nominate Adriana Lima's ass as undefeated world champion. Models like Gisele Bunchen and Miranda Kerr may have even better bodies overall, but Adriana's ass is in a category all it's own.

BTW I love Kate Winslet, but seriously that was not a flattering picture of her ass they put up for that article.

The second article just proves my adage: women who claim they want bigger male parts just have huge, gaping female parts. :)

The list of quirky actresses lost me with Maggie Gyllenhaal and Christina Ricci. Shudder. I will never forget Steve Sailer describing Gyllenhaal as looking like a sad cartoon turtle.

The perfect behind is always to be seen in profile...

Posted by: charlton Griffin on January 15, 2009 9:23 AM

Whew, what a relief that girth makes up for lack of length. ;^)

In almost any bevy of high school beauties there are better tushes, way better, than those on JLo, Beyonce or even Kate Winslet.

Christina Lindberg... wow, another sex symbol from The Counterculture that just puts ours to shame. There's one redeeming thing about the '60s and early '70s.

Not a good picture of Kate Winslet. And anyway, the article's written by an Englishwoman -- all women are incompetent at judging asses, but the English have to be the worst at it.

What we really need is not a subjective scoring of ass greatness, but a simpler measure akin to bra size. That would allow us to do objective research involving the booty... for the greater good of humanity.

Ricpic is damn straight about where to look for tight, pert, bouncy buttocks. Random example, but a million others like it (pic is OK, but ads are NSFW):

I mean, the fatty deposits on her ass and thighs are ready to burst right through her flesh. Take that 33 y.o. moms!

Ag, your clinical descriptions make you come off as a bit Silence of the Lambs. When's your human suit ready?

I'm trying to squeeze in your mother this weekend, so I figure Monday morning, depending on how feisty she gets.

Posted by: agnostic on January 16, 2009 5:42 AM

Don't take no for an answer.

Alexa's comments are full of financial fantasy. She states she "likes" hooking. It pays better than selling cell phones, bagging groceries. Less hours than stripping. She is putting herself further into debt via tuition to create a company to "focus on adolescent and adult sex ed"? Once a hooker, always a hooker, until she is all washed up.

Words cannot express how thankful I am to have sons instead of daughters. They will never have to worry that the world (or the agnostics roaming the earth) are judging them by their butt size.

Posted by: Sister Wolf on January 18, 2009 6:35 PM


And be grateful that your sons never had to experience someone (like their tutor, say) sniffing at their crotches from ten feet away (though only when they were underage enough; old enough to vote and it's bye-bye crotch-snuffling) and, even more sick-making, realizing their virgin not-wannabe teacher is fantasizing that they're overcome by Teenage Lust for him.

I am, don't worry!
