commented on SL Letters of the Day: Two For Black Friday
@WWHC -- I've had this problem myself. Not the LW's problem, but the partner's problem. I'm wondering how long the guy has been single, because even if you don't have the death grip problem it's really easy to get so used to your own habits that other people's hands or mouth just isn't the same. But during intercourse, it's easier to get into your own rhythm, to have the same level of control over what's going on as you do when you're jerking off. It's a bit of a control thing at that point, it's harder to relax and let someone else take care of you. Not proud of it, but I've been there.
@W -- First off, I myself am a Furry and people making animal noises during sex weirds me out. (On a related note, I know a girl that'd be right up the LW's boyfriend's alley.) The odds of it getting any further than noises and tail plugs are really slim unless the LW really seems to be enjoying it. But coming at it with this "what's next, the laser pointer hur hur" attitude is going to get you in a mindset where you'll wind up offending him and driving him off. And if you've got that much of an interest in pegging, you shouldn't be too freaked out by any care and upkeep of the butt plugs.

See, I disagree with Dan. This guy needs to apologize to and then break up with her. He comes across like a colossal asshole who will find ways to make her miserable for the rest of her life even if they do work this out, because it sounds like he's going to make her walk on eggshells for him for as long as they're together. One day she's going to get an email from an old friend who tells her he misses talking to her and recently jacked to one of her selfies or something like that, and the LW is going to hear about it and lose his goddamn mind as if she's somehow done something horrible to him.
She needs an apology, sure. She doesn't need this asshole in her life regardless of what miscommunications happened.

In addition to other peoples' suggestions, lemme toss in a note of my own: If this woman has actual mental issues she's trying to cope with but her alters are basically popping up to say hi to you, one or two things is going on. Either she's faking it for the attention, in which case run, or she's convinced herself she's crazier than she is and doesn't understand DID, in which case run. I'm not an expert, but this sounds a lot less like someone with DID and a lot more like someone using something they saw on TV to pretend the aren't someone who's undergone a lot of trauma. I could very well be wrong, I'm sure whether I am or not someone else will say I am, but this thing has more red flags than a Communist rally.
Save up your money and get out.

@2 -- A friend of mine used to work for a text relay service to allow deaf people to communicate over the phone with a keyboard. They'd type to him, he'd read their message and dictate replies back. And once he wound up as a middleman handling the call between a guy and a madam at a brothel, trying to find an escort who knew sign language and was willing to do anal on an outcall. Finding the girl wasn't hard but because the guy kept haggling the price, the call took upwards of an hour. (Afterwards the madam actually offered to send someone to my friend for an hour, free of charge, out of sympathy for the hassle it was on him. He politely turned her down for a number of reasons.)
commented on Jon Stewart On What Just Happened
Honestly, given that this version of the Affordable Care Act is derived from health care plans and ideas first put together by Republicans (see, that's where the 'negotiation' took place, where Obama incorporated Republican ideas into the act rather than forcing a better system onto the nation), I think Jon Stewart could have been harsher on them.

@3: Well, the appearance of the 'blanks' was meant to be a bit of a surprise. The trailers needlessly spoiled that much.
