MMK, proceed with extreme caution. You're in a better position to judge, but you could stumble into a major trigger if you force the issue with your bf. Light spanking falls generally into the category of GGG, but he's already expressed he has issues with it. You may be able to work past it or it may tank your relationship.
MEATGIF, Dan's not wrong. Public D/s play. There's a Dom with a very hot tumblr who writes about this a lot, but it's in the context of someone who's also working out (despite the scene happening, anyone looking at it would think they were workout buddies). If it is everyone who's freaked out, speak to the management. Doing a muscle worship scene at the gym is over the line if all of you didn't consent to participate in the scene.
commented on Is Lifelogging Stupid?
Actually, if you were doing something specific for a finite period of time (for instance, "I want to lose 15 pounds before that reunion in September," or "I need to be saving at least 10% of my gross income--where is my money currently going?"), doing it for 30-90 days seems like it would be a great tool. If you're planning to do it for the rest of your life (or worse felt compelled to do it for the rest of your life), that's just sort of--sad.

@12 The important difference is that on the left they're living off the grid in a little cabin in the hills of New Mexico with a stock of tinfoil to hide from the aliens (and possibly the reptile people). On the right they're in the Congress and Senate Chairing committees on Education and National Security.
commented on Hospital In Missouri Facing the Mother of All Lawsuits
@29 Because this instant "we don't have all the information" reaction when something likes this breaks is bullshit. It's victim blaming. There is no possible excuse for the hospital to have allowed this to escalate the way they did. It is implicit in their statement that there were two parties involved, "family" and "non-family". The hospital decided in an utterly arbitrary way who the patient's family was. Can we say with 100% certainty that it was against the patient's wishes based on the known information? No, but it's the way to bet.
You think the onus is on the victim to prove the hospital did something wrong. I think the burden is on the hospital to prove they acted correctly.
