This seems like a good place for this: www.inthemotherhood.com - funny little shorts sent in by real ppl, produced by Suave and Sprint. You have to scroll to the right under the screen to get to the first episode.
Here's a story that's, er, not quite what one would expect.
Amaxen, I almost never click on your "check this out" link because the titles are so uninformative and I want to know what I'm getting into. Would it spoil it for you to be a little more descriptive? Because you've posted a lot of cool stuff!
George Clooney -- plays a practical joke. Text only and sfw, but may leave a rather odd image in your head. Next link: Spongebob Squarepants Rectal Thermometer.
There is a Spongebob episode, my favorite, where they come up with a slogan for the restaurant to sell more patties. They decide on People Order Our Patties! and the signs have big letter P's on them so all you see is POOP! That thermometer reminded me of that. Perfect!
I read that to my husband and I was laughing so hard I was crying. He was not as amused as I.
What's up with all the old references in that story, though? The guy is telling the story like it happened last week or a year ago, and last I checked, Spin City has been off the air for a few years (and I miss it).
If I'm making cross-cultural sex sound like a bit of a nightmare: yeah, it was. In this case, once I worked out what was going on, I thought all my problems could be solved by a simple conversation or two, explaining the more free-form nature of western sex, and encouraging my partner along the lines of, "You don't have to act a certain way, you can act however you like! You can relax! Enjoy yourself! Doesn't that sound great?" but that was also a failure to understand the Japanese psyche. It's not liberating for a Japanese person to be told there are no rules, it's frightening. I was inadvertently terrorizing my partner by dropping them into the middle of a scary foreign wilderness and telling them to make do without a map.
Me: First of all, westerners don't always shower or have a bath before sex. However, I will try to accommodate you on this because the idea of sex without showering seemed to horrify everyone I talked to right down to their very bones.
Secondly, when you suggested that I shower the other day, and I said no, I was not rejecting you. I didn't understand that it was your Japanese signal that you wanted to have sex. If I had understood that, I would definitely have said yes.
Seiji: *spits tea all over the table*
Me: …this is one of those deeply unspoken Japanese things that I'm not supposed to talk about directly, isn't it.
