I think Grace gave a reasonable response to it. I probably would have stopped at the first line, telling him it was an inappropriate and overly forward question to ask and leave it at that. I'm not going to get myself in trouble with someone's parents for answering any question they have about sex or sexuality that can't be asked and answered in the context of the biology forum. Since we allow people on this board 13 yrs and up, juvenile questions will happen from time to time, so I guess I have some patience with explaining to them that they've crossed a line between what is and isnt' appropriate and leave it at that.

Although I thought it was a little bit of a weird question I replied. I can't say I got offended at all. Questions don't bother me at all. God knows there are worst things a person could do.

I get some really "out there" ones through my yahoo group. I ignore the nasty ones. :tongue2:

I'm not that open minded, that PM had no merit whatsoever. That wasn't inquisitiveness, that was pure idiocy from a troll and did not deserve a response. I get those and delete them, I certainly don't respond to them.

Sorry Grace, but responding to these idiot messages is not the thing to do. You are only asking them to continue. I don't get offended, I realize what is acceptable and what crosses the line, this crosses the line, dont encourage it, at least not here. If you want this sort of thing, that's fine, don't post it here.

I guess if I got a lot of those, I'd stop replying. Not sure if I'd have replied under these circumstances either, given she didn't even know who this poster was. The only time I got anything that personal somewhat out of the blue, I knew it was related to a thread I was discussing at the time, so did respond that the question was too personal and if it couldn't be discussed in the active thread, I wasn't going to discuss it in a PM. But that person promptly apologized realizing he'd gone a tad too far in his curiosity. I figure with most of the board knowing I have expertise in reproduction, I'm a likely target for some off-the-wall questions. Maybe that also means they know they're going to get rather dry answers from me, so don't bother asking.

All I ever get are dirty PMs, 1000s of them. But I won't mention any names (Moonbear, Gokul, Evo, MIH, Ivan, Tsu)

But you never complain when I send you dirty PMs. In fact, those seem to be the only ones you reply to. :rofl:

I do have to admit that I am in some form an exhibitionist (but always keep it legal). The reason I wanted to pose for men was because I was in the military and felt so "boyish" my whole life. I saw how beautiful the models were & always wondered what I would look like if my face/body were in the hands of the expert photographers. For me it's about feeling beautiful & expressing my freedom to pose nude & let others appreciate it.

My sentiments as well. Grace, that might have been a bit too much personal information there! It certainly won't help avoid the young guys around here sending strange PMs. :rolleyes:

And her gratious (from Grace :tongue2: ) hand would feel so molested if the brain asked it to take the mouse and click on "Check all" and "Delete"...

Yeah,...Posing nude is good for men's sight... :tongue2:
