    Given a free evening to do whatever you choose without consequences of any kind, what would you choose:
    a) sex with someone who's not very impressive in bed, or
    b) interesting book?

      Both. At the same time preferably. wink

        You all must be wondering how this is possible.... look carefully at Mark's profile pic... the guy's got an obvious advantage!

      You're obviously a female who lacks good looks. So, is it really the guys fault he wants to get the sex over quickly so he can watch the football?

      Ummm, lets see now...

      A) Have sex with an ugly female.

      B) Watch football.

        Thanks Jonnathan, but looks is something I lack least wink
        Plus, I did not mention an UGLY guy. I mentioned average performance, right? wink
        So, let's get it your way:
        - sex with a female who does not shout/moan/do something else you see in porn;
        - watch football.

        You say you choose football? I wouldn't, if I were you.

          Well, if the guy is smart, he will do both.

          And if the guy is super-smart, he will coincide his climactic orgasm at the precise moment his favourite football team scores a goal. Therefore, he has the best of both worlds.

            If the guy is smart, he will just switch off the tv. Or just forget it.
            Because sex is something that you should enjoy, to the maximum. If football is better for you... well, your choice.

            Be careful which team you support then . . with some teams you'll never get your orgasm at all.smile Better choose Chelsea or Man Utd I think - chances of multiple orgasms there:)

              Ahhh yes, there are clearly some momentous decisions that life throws at you that cannot easily be made.

              Watching Stoke City or have sex with an ugly female, would definitely be one of those decisions. 

              Anyway, I digress.

    B.  A good book, definitely.

    A lousy lover doesn't have much to recommend him, except for the extra warmth.  Some lovers make better pillows, to prop yourself up on while reading a good book!

        Jonathan Jancoposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        I don't think a puppy would be very good in bed, either. Too many parasites in the fur. No, I need a woman who actually knows how to do things. But I'm the first to admit that I'm VERY hard to please.

    3. Black Lilly profile image60
      Black Lillyposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        Jonathan Jancoposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        Actually, it's gotten to the point where EXPECTING anything has pretty much taken a back seat. Back seat? Like maybe an old VW bug? Maybe that'll do the trick.

      1. never had a problem with that;
      2. I wasn't talking about myself.

      Ok, think that needs explaining: I asked this question because I read it in my horoscope about 10 years ago, and somehow still remember it. It said something like "she'll sleep with an average lover instead of reading a good book".

    Colebabieposted 8 years ago

    The post says someone who is "not so impressive" not "horrible" or "really bad". And we're talking no consequences. A book will always be there. Guilt-free sex, not so much. Even average sex is still sex. And even if they aren't that impressive, if you're good it'll be better wink

  20. wychic profile image85
    wychicposted 8 years ago

    The good book, absolutely no question! Granted, I don't have to worry about mediocre sex anymore either. I had plenty of that with my ex, and his being 150 pounds overweight (and all the associated issues) were only a small part of it, getting to the point where a pretty cloud in the sky held more inspiration for me than the wildest night with him ever could.

    That said, I'd take my current other half over the greatest books, music, food, or dream vacations in the world, he tops 'em all wink

    TammyKposted 8 years ago

    it depends.  if he's too bad, i'd prefer the book.  if he's not that bad, i can help him improve.  but the thought of teaching someone who should know could be a turn-off.  then on second thought it could be fun and exciting.  but the down fall to that, once you got hi good, he'd leave and should someone else what you taught him.
