she might change her mind, I did. Early in my sex life I was in a relationship where I was under huge pressure to give head, and it was painful, boring and he was super selfish about it After leaving him I promised myself that I never had to do that again. So I'v always told any new guy that I do not like giving head and don't really do it. If he's gracious about this then I'm safe to relax, knowing I'm not going be harassed about it. Over the years I've practiced giving head to these laid back guys, and I've come to like it quite a bit. Given that I have a small jaw and a strong gag reflex I almost never do it too completion, but it's a fun part of foreplay...

"That gulf creates estrangement and alienation, and one of a particular sort in a democracy where such a minuscule sliver of the population can't hope to protect itself alone at the ballot box."

this is priceless though, clearly the the wealthy are profoundly disadvantaged at the ballot box.... Koch brother not withstanding.....

@14- sometimes some of us just need to call bullsh!t what is it, particularly when talking to people will not listen, who will not be moved.

I'm with @16, she spoke for me and mine, a rallying cry, and I need every one I can get.

@26:

as a nurse, having worked both union and non union jobs, I can tell you that without the benefits and protections supplied through union lobbying of governments and hospitals, nursing can be a truly horrible job.
