Re: A new theory of sexuality

So, the lines are intended to marks points along an axis rather than being the axes themselves? I interpreted them the other way around.

Re: A new theory of sexuality

Siggy, are you sure about those colors? It looks to me like blue is intensity/frequency and red is the Kinsey score. Unless I'm reading it backwards.

Re: The concept of squish

So, it's like what some people are calling a "man-crush" (where a man really likes another man and wants to be friends with him, but not in a romantic or sexual way since that would be an affront to his masculinity) but not specific to one gender?

Re: Pre-asexuality views on sex?

Growing up I was a very romantic and sex-positive person, which is probably part of the reason I didn't start questioning my sexual orientation until after I got my first gray hair (even though I remained a virgin well into my 30s). I'm not quite as sex-positive now that I've had some experience wit...

Re: Everyone gets a Royal title

If they had invented the title of "Earl" in '89 I'm pretty sure I would have seen it on the news or something. I was 17 that year. It had to have been at least before '75.

My family, at one time, ruled (aka conquered) the entire known world. They also pillaged coastal villages, came across on the Mayflower, crossed the American plains in a wagon train, settled Utah and dug the canal system there by hand. That doesn't earn me any title but it does leave me wondering wh...

I've come to the conclusion that, while there are some great blogs out there (including those by people here), most of them are the internet equivalent of graffiti.

Hello, I'm Shockwave. I joined AVEN in June '04 under the screenname Xenius13 and I've been an off-and-on active member there since. Near the end of '07 I disappeared offline briefly because of a relationship that ended badly. When I resurfaced a few months later I was still a little angry so I name...

Problem while viewing in Safari

I first viewed the new layout in Safari on my phone and noticed that the navigation bar at the top (Portal < Board Index < etc.) is off center. It's pushed far to the right instead. I checked it with Safari on my computer and see the same problem but it's fine in Firefox.

I'm not going to volunteer to admin the site because I recently started my own. However, if no-one wants to take over duties here I would like to transfer the knowledge base to my site. It would be a shame if all that work got wasted.
