Your knack for missing the point is incredible.  I don't care who you have sex with.  That's the point.  No one does.

How deliciously hypocritical.  Not a word yet on those who were discussing their autoerotic stimulation at the beginning of this post.

Most people would not post something like that on a message board.  But like I said, you are special.  You see it raises questions about why you would want people to have this wonderful little nugget of information.  When you blast through commonly shared subtleties of good taste in such a  way, it screams "deliberate effort" whether you realize/care or not.

If it entertains you to think that I spent my time deliberately trying to poke through your "commonly shared subtleties of good taste" (pray tell, does "jacking off" fall into such a category), by all means, do what pleases you.

You do not get to choose the impression your words make.  You can only choose your words.  When you try to "casually" slip info about your sexual odysseys into unrelated conversations it will ALWAYS sound like you are desperately insecure and trying very hard. ALWAYS. Since you obviously must know that no one here cares who you sleep with, what is it you are trying to justify by decribing the sexual appetite of some chick you bagged?  Do you not understand how stupid you sound?  Do you want validation? Are you aware that it sounds like you are making it up, even if you aren't?  ... ah forget it.  I can't believe I'm still responding to this.  You get under my skin somehow.

I don't know if you don't know these things or if you are oblivious to conversational tact.  Nothing that you said was in the least bit offensive.  It was pathetic.  See if you can figure it out.

Similarly, when a random poster overreacts at the slightest suggestion of sexuality, certain questions come to mind.  It seems pathetic, for instance, that you care so much that I mention sexual relations as a pastime.  I really don't see why you are so embarrassed, unless this raises an uncomfortable inadequacy for you.  In that case, I sincerely apologize that you are still so woefully repressed.  It's dreadfully unattractive.

Get the point.  Pay attention.

You seem to think that I am bothered by a discussion of sexuality. I have not once suggested this. I could care less if you said sex was a pastime (on topic).  What you did was imply that you keep women satisfied.  Ummm okaaaaayy, thanks for the update, freak.  A little off topic.

I think you sound pathetic because you are actually trying to offer details about some girl's sexual appetite out of the blue.  The earlier posters were at least on topic and it was funny.  Yours was just weird.  You went the extra step of trying to add a little commentary on your prowess.  It looks contrived because you just slipped it in there like it it ain't no thang.  You my friend, are special.

but the women I've been hooking up with lately have also been quite the insatiable sexpots!

I'm sorry, I just had to repost this freaking awesome quote.

These sexpots are insatiable!!  My boy is all over that *&^%!!

Moron.

Haha, if you read an implication about my "prowess" into that, you have the gift of subtextual idiocy.  All I said was that a particular girl was "insatiable."  Now, if you actually understood what that word meant, you would realize that "incapable of being pleased or satisfied" (a rough definition of insatiable) suggests nothing about my prowess.  In fact, you might logically conclude the opposite (i.e., that I was incapable of satisfying her sexually).  If anything, it was a self-deprecating comment.

This is a lovely illustration of why English should be taught more often.

You're right.  I don't know what f-ing "insatiable" means. 

Consider if I served up the following, out of the blue, in the middle of a discussion about exam stresses:

"Personally, I've been blowing off a little steam between the sheets.  Lucky for me, the last few days my girl just can't get enough of it!"


Would I sound like:
A) A pathetic loser
B) A self-deprecating funnyman(?)
C) A liar
D) An awkward dork

Ah, well you ought to have availed yourself of a dictionary.  Keep that memo for the future.

Considering that you wrote the quote, I'd pick (E) "All of the above."  However, given the original context of my statement, if I were you, I would shrug and laugh.  Probably throw a friendly jab about not being able to satisfy a woman.  But that's because I don't take myself so seriously. 

You, on the other hand, should get some.  It'd make you much less of a crab, ya know.

Why don't you look up "sarcasm" in the dictionary?  Of course I know what insatiable means.   It's probably a 10th grade vocabulary word, oh learned one.  You are so out of touch with what's going on it's freakish.  You actually think that you are teaching me vocabulary?  "Insatiable"? ?

You are your biggest fan.  You claim to have regular sex.  Congratulations, no one cares.  You dumb down these boards with porn star pics on EVERY thread.  Grow up.  You claim to have an interest and appreciation for the "female form" as an artist, which consists exclusively of fake porn unmentionables.  You and every other 16-year old. You are a self-proclaimed "connoisseur" of women because you collect porn and know every porn star by name.  Bordering on creepy.  And finally, you try SO hard to use big words that you think no one else could possibly have your 10th-grade vocabulary, and you forcefully and deliberately inject words in sentences to create awkwardly flowing phrases like "the gift of subtextual idiocy." and flowery ones like "pray tell", not to mention following the words "hooking up" with "insatiable sexpots."

Then, you think no one has EVER heard of words like "insatiable" and "hedonism" (oh please educate us with your vast knowledge of Greece.  Are you for real or what?  This is a law school message board!).

Everything about you is transparently fake.  Your user name is LoverOfWomen for Christ's sake.  Even your "plan" of working with Hollywood actresses or porn stars as an entertainment lawyer is the law school equivalent of "I want to be a spaceman when I grow up because I want to go to outer space!!"

Fake.  Pathetic.  In fact I am having a hard time believing you are even in law school at all.  I am starting to have the sinking and embarrassing feeling that I have actually been  bickering with a high school student.

Given how grossly you misinterpreted my post (in fact, you gave "insatiable" the opposite meaning), it was very possible that you didn't have the vocabulary of a 10th grader.  Your rant about beautiful women and the supposed crime of my purple prose--on the hedonism point, I didn't care to educate you about Greece; you completely missed the allusion to Walter Pater--strikes me as frustration more than anything else.  I've already explained my position, but I suspect that no amount of discussion will appease you.  In that case, I'll simply ignore your little tantrum.  Perhaps at some later point, when you are less easily annoyed, you will see how silly you're acting.

If you don't like my career plans, that's your deal.  I chose to incorporate legal studies with an existing interest of mine.  I really don't see why this bothers you so much, and at this point, I really don't care.

To move this conversation back to more topical ground, I'm playing Monopoly.

I would describe the life philosophy as hedonistic, but it might give the wrong impression to those who don't know Greek.

This is not an allusion to anything.  It is an ordinary usage of an English word, in plain context.

You didn't care to educate me, you sh*thead?  You didn't MAKE an allusion.  You are trying so hard-- again, transparently.   Look everyone, he made an allusion to a Victorian English dead guy!   Oooooohhhh AAAhhhhhh!!!! (applause) --Only problem is, you didn't.  You only wish you did because you think it would have made you look pretty intelligent.  You didn't allude to Pater any more than you alluded to Plato  You simply used a common English word correctly (Yes, most people here are aware of its Greek origin, dumbass),  Congratulations.

Yawn.

Fake.

Transparent.

I can definitely see why you are a LoverOfWomen instead of a LoverOfAWoman.  You are a child.  Go back to your porn sites and don't ever try to "educate" anyone again.  People whose favorite thing in life is admittedly girls with fake titties don't get to "educate" other adults.

You are surprisingly dense.  Pater's quote was: "I wish they would not call me a hedonist.  It gives such a wrong impression to those who do not know Greek."  If you look at my quote, you'll see that it's a rough paraphrase of his own statement.  I chose this particular "Victorian English dead guy" (a choice redundancy, I might add; very few Victorians are anything other than English or dead) because he was the primary spokesperson of the aesthetic movement, the period that I think best reflects my own views on art.  Perhaps you studied the pre-Raphaelites in undergraduate and only forgot.  Or perhaps while you were yawning and jabbering about fakery--if you've read anything by Wilde, another favorite of mine, you would probably understand why I find that particular accusation so deliciously funny--you missed out the study of the important cultural movements of the past.

Oh, the "transparent" charge stings.

I'm not a LoverOfAWoman because I find such declarations obscene.  "It is most dangerous nowadays for a husband to pay any attention to his wife in public.  It always makes people think that the beats her when they're alone."  (I'll save you the trouble; the quote is from Oscar Wilde). 

Again, it's amusing to find someone so disconcerted by fakery, as if the natural was ever desirable.  Do read "The Decay of Lying" sometime when you have the chance.  I could explain it to you, but then again, I wouldn't presume to educate you.  I've never had it in me to take up hopeless chores.
