Do you know a lot of people who've never had an orgasm? I know like at least five over 25. Is it really that common?

If you've never had an orgasm.... do you think or hope to eventually figure it out or are you just content being a nonorgasmer?

If you knew people who've never had one, would you try to encourage them to try different tips or techniques or would you not want to even talk to them about it?

Time and again, I try to save locations on Google Earth, but it ends up crashing, causing me to lose ALL my places and notes - even the ones I had saved in prior sessions. I've updated GE and tried everything, but I'm just tired of tinkering and reentering everything from scratch. Is there another online map thing that functions better in terms of saving favorite places worldwide, checking distances, zooming, etc? And doesn't crash? Yeah, that's a biggie. Google Earth has pissed me off for the last time.

Inspired by previous post.

TQC, I am turning 18 two weeks from...yesterday. So Sunday, June 15th. My boyfriend lives 800 miles away during the summer (we go to college together) and is coming to visit that weekend. It'll be short, he's coming in Friday night and leaving Sunday night. Our main day together will be on Saturday, since he'll have to go to the airport at around 4 PM on Sunday.

So...

If I tried to go to 18+ places, such as piercing shops, tobacco stores, many concerts, etc, the day BEFORE my birthday, do you think they'd sell to me/pierce me/let me in? I think not but I want other opinions.

EDIT: yes, I know about not going to irreputable piercings shops. Thanks.

smoking [Jun. 2nd, 2008|07:57 am]
The Question Club

thequestionclub

[seberia]
so, i have a bit of a problem, i would like advice.
i smoke on and off. i LOVE smoking. i am talking about cigarettes here.
i am trying to stop because my boyfriend of 2 years and i are wanting to move in together and he doesn't like cigarettes. i've been more or less quit since last july. but i just... i love smoking. i see myself as a smoker, and i am drawn to people/characters and often later find out they are smokers. i enjoy it and i really don't give a damn about the health problems. i'm not the health nut type of person. i'm only getting into shape recently because my time to join the academy is coming closer and closer and despite my promised spot i would like to go through with top marks instead of sitting low on the chain.
i've tried the gum. it sucks.
i've tried the mint/cough drop type deals and those are more ass than the gum.
at my high of smoking almost 3 packs a day i tried the patch thing and it made me faint. it was too much to fast or something. i tried the lowest dosage and i got the same effect.
when i go without smoking i am mildly more depressed, and i always have to stop cold turkey otherwise i get pissy about it.
what the fuck am i supposed to do? i love my boyfriend, i want to move in with him, and i am sick of feeling guilty after i smoke or rushing to shower and brush the shit out of my mouth until my gums bleed. i would like to either figure out a good way to say "hey, i don't think i will ever quit smoking" and not have him respond with "i don't want to share my life with a smoker" or "you won't quit when you're pregnant"/"i don't want my children breathing in cigarette smoke"
so it's basically i quit for good forever. or i keep smoking and i risk losing him. i mean, he is more important, but i don't want to give up something i have done for almost 10 years, heavily those 10 years, when i don't see the risks as that huge a problem.
do you think there is some middle ground here neither of us see?
if not, what can i do to try and find smoking no longer this wonderful, large part of my life?
i don't think it is some controlling thing. i totally see his points. it really is not fun to kiss someone who smokes when you yourself do not. i'm sure if the situation was reversed and i was telling him i hate cuddling up to someone who smells and tastes like an ash tray and i don't think he'll stop when i get pregnant, people would call him a jackass for not quitting. so what do i do, TQC?
this is literally our only problem. my utter and complete lack of regard for my personal health. the smoking is the biggest part of that, but our only fight consisted of me not taking pills after i had been stuck in the hospital and the doctor told me i could die. give me a good idea, here, please!

My stinky husband made me watch Cloverfield last night. It was super lame. In retaliation, I'm making him watch Molière which looks fabulously French and over the top. However, I'm not sure this film alone is enough to pay him back, since he has made me watch a ton of crappy movies over the course of our 7 year relationship.

What other movies should I make him watch with me?

This might get a little sticky. Bear with me, please. I realize I might not be the best with words, but I'm trying to convey something that I see quite often...


I am wondering if anyone is offended when people claim certain ethnicity ("Native American" is a common one, and the example I'll use here) yet their "dominant" ethnicity is Caucasian or something other?

Like, I had a friend who was 100% Ojibwa native. She would get offended when joe-schmoe came up boasting "Native blood" when he was clearly white, blonde hair, blue eyes... maybe there was Native somewhere along that line, but it could not be traced back. To her, he was not native. To many, it just seemed he wanted to boast "ethnic" heritage and it embrassed and frustrated my friend.

If you are "ethnic", how do you feel about others claiming to share your ethnicity, when they clearly don't look it?

How ethnic do you have to be to be considered "ethnic"?

To those who are "mixed", can you trace your heritage back? At what point do you start/stop calling yourself "Native"? Do you consider yourself "native" even if the only native blood you might have was from great, great, great ancestors who were native? Do you ever feel weird claiming "native blood" in front of "full-blooded" natives?

So, I have some sort of parasite living in my bed. I have bites over every square inch of my body, and it is terribly painful (o hai itchy buttcrack) and obnoxious, especially when trying to study.  Whatever this creature is, I have seen several of them; they look just like specks of dirt, except moving. I'm pretty sure bedbugs are bigger. What are these? How can I get rid of them?

I am pretty sure they're not bedbugs.  They are a sandy-brown color, the size of chiggers.

I realise this is probably obvious, but I can't for the life of me remember the title of the book.

In the preface, it said something to effect of 'With you it was different. With you I wasn't playing a game. With you it meant something'. It's a book about men/boys and this game they play, the score I believe is related to how many women they get laid with. I haven't read the book though, so I don't honestly know what it's about, that was just my impression.

Anyone know the title?

i know i just posted like, 8 questions ago, but... get over it. :P

Today I am going to go visit my grandfather in the hospital.  When I was there last Friday, my grandma was talking about how lonely it is in bed at night without my grandpa (he has been in the hospital for about a week now), so I told her that she should get a body pillow so she had something to cuddle with at night.  My husband and I were out yesterday and we picked one up for her... would it be okay for us to carry the huge body pillow into the hospital with us to give to her, or might they not allow that?
Also, I want to bring some sort of a small gift for my grandpa.  Would it be tacky to bring him a picture of me and him together at my wedding, in a frame, so he can display it in his room?  Or would that be a good idea?  Should I just get a balloon or something instead? 
I'm not very well versed in the whole "visiting people in the hospital" thing...

I have many tattoos planned, but haven't had any yet. For those of you that have them, how much do you usually tip the tattoo artist? If there are any tattoo artists reading this, how much is an average tip that you get? My friend just got a tattoo that cost $50, and he gave the artist a $30 tip on top of that.

I work at a clothing store. We were having a sale Saturday and it was very busy. My manager mentions to me that there's a small child (3? 4?) alone in a stroller right outside the store like it was a dog. I was busy and hoped/assumed that someone else would look into it.

When I realized that everyone in this city is fucking passive and too chicken-shit to take initiative about ANYTHING (or "interfere" with anyone else's "business") I went outside and brought the child in. She ran straight to 2 women. I assumed the older one was her mother, and I explained as politely but forcefully as I could that she should watch her child so she doesn't run away or get abducted. The woman just kind of smiled a lot and nodded and agreed with me but didn't seem to take anything I was saying seriously.

10 minutes later I went back to check on the child and saw that she was *back in the stroller outside the store*. I could not fucking believe it. I went and found the "mother" again and restrained myself from flipping out on her when I reminded her to WATCH HER CHILD. Only then did the woman bring the child/stroller into the store.

Should I have done more? I'm not sure that even if I had said all the things I wanted to say to this woman about what a negligent/selfish parent (or babysitter, whatever) she was that it would have gotten through her DENSE SKULL. I can't stop thinking about it and getting angry and regretting not trying harder to make her realize that she was a fucking shitty parent.

Also, it makes me angry that I can pretty much guarantee that if I hadn't brought the child in and said something to her "mother", no one else would have. Why are people like that?

Ive been an Architecture major for two years and I'm about to start my second summer of Arch courses.. I ran into a 3rd year and he recognized me (we never really had "met" before) and we got to talk talking and he said he was switching majors and we discussed it and I sort of started to thinking, do I really want to do this? Then I had a conversation with my manager at work and he asked me, "What are you passionate about?" And I thought, Architecture? But I knew that wasn't really true...


Which brings me to my question: Am I crazy to set myself back this much and change my major to film studies--with the technical aspects as a concentration, editting or possibly cinematography, that sort of thing-- (possibly a double major with graphic design)? Do you have or are you working on a degree that your family/friends says, Why?! Thats USELESS! How's that working out for you?

So I'm going out tonight with a couple of people from work to see a co-worker's jazz band. Everyone's coming straight from work, but as I was only in for half the day I have an opportunity to change my outfit. I was thinking of wearing a strapless silk black dress (knee-high), some nice dangly earrings, a cute cardigan (it's cold here!) and some heels.

Does this sound too dressy? Everyone I'm with is male and they'll be in suits, plus it is a jazz club so that kind of sounds dressy anyway; but I'm worried that it'll just be too OTT and I'll look out of place.

I had a weird ass dream, but that part freaked me out. I escaped their clutches by pretending to be one of them, and just standing there silently while the others passed by, before running in the opposite direction. I wonder what my subconscious was referring to.

There's this guy who hangs around my friends a lot who hates my guts, and I have no idea why. I haven't said anything to him aside from light conversation ("The weather's nice, huh?"). I know I can't win 'em all, but every time he is there when I hang out with my friends, he talks about how much he can't stand me like I'm not even there. I never talk to him, but he insists on butting into my conversations and generally acting like a royal douchebag all the time. He says he's just being "honest", but come on!

It's getting on my last nerve, and I don't want to avoid him because he hangs out with my friends often...I don't want to miss out on fun parties and outings because of this jackass.

I've tried ignoring him, and I've told him I don't have a problem with him so let it be...being rational with this guy really doesn't work. I don't care if he hates me, I just want him to shut up about it!

I have this weird red swollen bump on the inside of my elbow, and there's these pinkish streaks on my arm near it. And the skin on it is all flaky.

I don't know what it is... it's been there for days... and I've never had anything like this before, so it's bothering me...

Does anyone know what it is and/or know how I can make it go away?

EDIT: Okay, my mum just phoned my doctor about it. If the doctor's office reckons I need to see them, which I suppose they will-- infection in the blood stream, bad, got it-- I'll be going to get it checked out 8:30 Eastern time-- less than two hours from now. Thanks, everyone!

If you got married to someone who had a mom and a step mom that they were really close with, would you call them both "mother in law"?

What is something you do sexually that you would be embarrassed if anyone outside of your relationship knew about??

I work for this guy who runs a computer repair company out of his bedroom. I'm basically his bookkeeper, I balance his checkbook and organize his paperwork. That's what the job description said, and that's what I signed up for.

Now, suddenly, he's got me doing more secretarial work. I still manage his finances, but now I'm taking calls, making calls, making appointments, writing letters, and dealing with complaints from the clients. And I SUCK at doing all of that. I have TERRIBLE phone skills (I really, really hate talking on the phone), and I don't sound professional at all. Plus, when the clients complain, it's like their talking in another language -- I don't know why the hell their modem isn't working! I don't even really know what a modem is!

Whenever I tell him I don't know how to do any of this stuff and if maybe he can guide me a little, he tells me he's busy. Playing World of Warcraft. I'm not kidding. One client was getting really pissed off, and my boss kept saying to me, "I'll be done in this instance in twenty minutes, keep him busy until then." When I said, "Hey, maybe we can just say we'll call him back?" he got REALLY mad at me. "That's completely unprofessional and we can lose him as a customer!" And then he got mad at me again, because his character died.

Now he wants me to send out this mass letter to all his clients telling that his rates are going up. I don't even know how to START that letter.

Soo...any advice how to write that letter? How about tips on being a good secretary?

P.S. I know this job is super lame, and I'm looking for another, but in the mean time, there are bills to pay. :(

Everyone loves a good love triangle. Well - at least until it happens to you. Anyways, my question is just about people's experience in the past with these types of situations:

I dated a guy (T) for a few months, he got cold feet, broke it off. Four months later, I started dating some other guy (D) who is like our mutual friend. We kind of dated in secret, which I don't know if that complicates the situation, but whatever. Anyways, the whole D thing is getting really serious and we just fight all the time - its not fun, and I just don't know if that's what I want right now. Also, I found out that T has feelings for me - and now he wants me back. So, TQC, if you were me, what would you do? Stable / Dependable / Slightly Boring (D) or Fun / Crazy / Inconsistent (T) ?

If you're a smoker, have you noticed lately that your cigarettes have a tendency to go out when you don't smoke them fast enough?
Yes, and it's been bothering me for weeks.  I couldn't understand why it was happening until about 30 seconds ago when my friend told me that by law all cigarettes sold must be "Fire Safety Cigarettes."  The idea is if you fall asleep in bed with your cigarette, you won't burn your house down.

Did you already know about FSCs or are you incredibly slow like me?

And for all you non smokers, when was the last time you felt like you were the "last to know"?

I became good friends with a guy a while ago, but we've just begun to hang out. We went to eat and he saw this girl he thought was hot. He asked her for her number. She hesitated, but I paid her a visit to talk to her and now they're sort of dating. It's all fine.

Except now all he does is talk about her. Every day is like...

Him: Hi, how are you?
Me: Good and you?
Him: OMG I'm going to see (the girl) today!! Look at this text message of her declaring her undying love for me! This is uncomfortable for you to look at but I don't care!! Her her her!!
Me: *uncomfortable* Umm... that's really good.

It's getting really annoying. I have a feeling that it's going to get worse because he's not shy about talking about... er... sexual experiences. He wants to hang out on Saturday. What should I do?

A. Fire him from friendship. All he can think about is her anyway. He can't possibly value your friendship.

B. Talk to him about it. Since I have no tact, I cannot avoid hurting his feelings.

C. Try and put up with it and hope it goes away after a while. See how it goes. Then fire him if it gets bad.

D. (Your comment here)

I even read the wiki how article which said I should try to avoid hurting his feelings because he's *excited.* He's in his 30s and has had quite the number of sexual partners, so he's not inexperienced. He's just... wow. It's getting boring.

Oh and tomorrow I start karate. I'm excited.

the new cat has a fresh box of litter, food, water, and an open window for fresh air. how long should i keep him in there? how do i handle the introductions?

right now, the new cat is hissing at my kittens from the other side of the door. the little ones seem very edgy and suspicious.

i would really appreciate some advice. i've never been in this situation before.

I suddenly out of nowhere go these itch red welts that vary in shape and size ALL OVER my body. Excluding my face [so far]. They are horribly itchy and get worse if I scratch them. A welt doesn't seem to appear unless I scratch either but it itches so badly...I have ice on them now and it's helping a little but they still won't go away. Could they be hives? What can I do if they are hives? I thought it was bed bugs but...we changed all of my clothes/bed sheets/everything/bombed my room/took pets away....so I dunno.

I was at the park on Friday with some friends and I thought somehow I may have gotten in contact with poison...I didn't touch anything but my mom said it can be in the air to. If so wouldn't my friends have the same symptoms? I was there Friday and this started in the afternoon on Sunday. It's literally ALL OVER my body like I said. We've checked for fleas and there are none. I had my new [as of April 21st this year] guinea pig in my room with his cage near my bed. My mom thinks there were mites on him [got him at Petco if that matters] and they got onto my bed from his cage. I rarely see him scratch though...

I have googled this and I come up with many things it could be but I'm still uncertain. Should I just see a doctor if it worsens? Any creams I can buy to get rid of these welts?

For the organized: What is your favorite way of keeping track of things that you need to do? Post-its? Lists? Writing it in your calendar/planner?

I do all three. I write lists on post-it's and stick them in my calendar so that I can move them from one week to the next if need be. For things that must be done on a specific day it gets written on that day and when I'm done with whatever it is I highlight it with whatever color highlighter I have closest to me. If you look at my old planners and flip through them they're a rainbow of color with nearly every page filled.

Edit: I suppose I should say mine. I think it's gotta be the "all black people love orange/grape soda and menthol cigarettes" simply because of this one story. Apparently, some black guys broke into a gas station and didn't take any money.. only grape & orange soda and menthol cigarettes. It was all over the news here.

 How much do you guys think I could get for a used Dell Inspiron 1501 with a right click that doesn't work (I was thinking of buying a USB mouse to compensate) and a scratch or two on the cover of the laptop? I've had this thing for about seven months or so.
Thanks in advance!

So. I'm really allergic to nickel and I wore a bracelet that I thought was nickel-free... Now I have a huge, itchy rash on my wrist with nothing to treat it with.

I heard chamomile tea bags that are chilled can be used, but I only have Tazo Calm, which is a chamomile blend with some other herbs. Think that'll be okay?
