Sex And A Young Boy Named Roshan

How Did You Learn About Sex?

I will be honest. I learned about sex and the female form when I was 12 years old. A guy who joined my school and my class in 7th grade and who was about a year older than me and most of my other friends, showed us how to smoke and while we were smoking during the recess period, he also showed us a nudie magazine that he had brought to school with him.

That was the first time that I can ever remember ever seeing images of a woman naked. This was new territory for me to explore. I learned about the wonderful world of breasts and asses and sexy looking women with their vaginas on display. This was exciting and what was that weird feeling growing hard between my legs? A few of us ogled over the images and discussed what we saw and knew (which was very little) and in our minds we dreamed. I would never look at women the same way again.

This would lead to me watching my first few soft porn films with some friends and also getting my first nude film. This was pre-internet ofcourse so it was hard to sneak it in. But yeah the fascnination still continues to this day all these years later.

Trying To Let Go

Tell us about a habit you’d like to break. Is there any way it can play a positive role in your life?

I’m not really sure if this can ever be positive in the least. The habit that I’d like to break is falling for the wrong girl. And by that I mean unattainable women and not that there is anything wrong with them. Other than the fact that I have no chance with them.

I guess that is why I am lonely and a still a bachelor at 39. The heart desires what the heart desires and I have no control over it (note – I know that it’s not the heart that chooses and that it’s actually the brain and chemicals but it’s a hard thing to change) and I guess that is a recurring thing for me. This time it’s probably the worst – I have fallen and fallen hard with a woman who is married and has a baby! Yes, I am that bad.

Yes she is gorgeous and beautiful but that isn’t what that attracted me to her and is making me feel this way. When I first met her, I thought “damn, she’s gorgeous” but nothing much beyond that. And I became her friend and started to get to know her. Now it’s almost 5 months later and I’ve gotten to know her pretty well and she’s amazing, funny, smart and she enjoys a lot of things that I enjoy and I can joke with her and make her laugh. I realized a few weeks ago that I had started thinking about her a lot and that I didn’t even realize that it has happened.

I even tried avoiding her for a while but it just made her think something was wrong with me. Two weeks ago I spent some time with her over two days and I enjoyed it so much and yet my heart was breaking inside as I knew that nothing would ever happen. I was away for a week for work purposes and all I could think of the whole journey to and fro and the days in between was here. About how I wish I had met her a few years ago. About how much I wish things were different.

I know eventually I will get over it and I have no plans of even giving her a hint of how I really feel about her. But it is tough to get over. I wish I didn’t feel this way. But while I am on the subject of wishing, can I wish to go back in time and be the one who wins her heart?

Patricia McPherson

This is a “whatever-happened-to” post. I’ve been watching more of Star Trek TNG season 1 yesterday and I was watching episode 14 (Angel One) and one of the guest stars is a familiar figure from another 80s iconic tv show – Knight Rider (can we call that show semi-Scifi?).

Yes it’s Patricia McPherson aka Bonnie Barstow on Knight Rider. Probably one of my first celebrity crushes ever! Patricia McPherson was born in Washington where her father was a high ranking naval officer. She spent gold viagra several years in France when her father was sent to Paris, and later studied advertising at the university in Florida and California. She then became a very successful model and worked as a magazine graphic artist.

After a few minor appearances she auditioned and got her first regular series role in Knight Rider. She appeared in season one and was absent from season two, but she was subsequently asked to return to the show, which she did in the season-three opener, remaining from 1984 until the end of the series in 1986 (she was in 62 episodes in total).

She made several guest roles on tv series in the 80s but she apparently quit acting in 1991 but did make one appearance in a 2009 episode of Warehouse 13. She got married in 1991 and has since been very active conserving wildlife and the forests. The last pic is from a 2011 convention.

Silken Laumann On “Unsinkable”

Sportsmen & sportswomen are human too. Already an iconic figure in the sport of rowing, Canadian athlete Silken Laumann inspired many by winning a bronze medal at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics despite having had a horrific & serious injuries to her leg just a few weeks prior! The collision with another rower’s scull was so serious that it shattered her right ankle and shredded her calf muscles in that you could see the bone but five operations and a total stay in the hospital of approximately three weeks, Laumann was back on the water training by late June. Her efforts paid off with a bronze medal, and she was subsequently named Canadian of the Year by the Canadian Club in recognition and was selected to carry the Canadian Flag in the closing ceremonies of the Olympics.

This year, age 49 Silken had published her book Unsinkable which focuses on her life & troubled childhood and also opens up in particular about the terror she felt and the verbal and physical abuse she experienced at the hands of her troubled and erratic mother, abuse that caused her feelings of unworthiness she battles to this day. She says this book took 5 years to write and came about as she did open up bits of her life during her long stint as a motivational speaker . Here is an interview with her by Fiona Forbes on The Rush.

Star Trek : TOS Women 18

From the season 2 episode By Any Other Name, we have the gorgeous Kelinda. She is a Kelvan, a member of an expedition from the Kelvan Empire in the radiation-imperiled Andromeda Galaxy. Her ancestors were part of a wave of multi-generational starships dispatched to nearby galaxies to find new territories for the Empire to conquer and occupy. Reaching the Milky Way Galaxy after centuries in the intergalactic void, her ship was destroyed crossing the galactic barrier. Under Rojan’s command, Kelinda escaped with three other crew members in a life-craft to an unnamed Class M planet. The Kelvans  adopted  humanoid  forms  more compatible with the new region’s intelligent life and available transportation.

After a false distress call attracted the attention of Captain James T. Kirk, Rojan’s crew hijacked the USS Enterprise, so they could return home and report their discoveries to the Kelvan Empire. Kelinda’s mind was briefly probed by Spock, and she was attacked by Kirk in an escape attempt. The humanoid sense perceptions and emotional tendencies were alien to Kelvan experience, leading Kirk and his senior officers to exploit Kelvan weaknesses. Kelinda immediately recognized Kirk’s apology for striking her was merely an opening for seduction, but she welcomed his efforts and embrace. Rojan was incited to a jealous rage by Kirk and Kelinda’s repeated ‘apology’ sessions. Kirk suggested that the Kelvan’s new humanity could be fully realized on a planet in the Milky Way, and Kelinda eagerly endorsed the idea of a life of humanoid sensations experienced with Rojan.

The role of Kelinda was portrayed by German-American actress and later entrepreneur Barbara Bouchet. She has acted in more than 80 films and television episodes and founded a production company that has produced fitness videos and books. She also owns and operates a fitness studio. She is more famous for playing Miss Moneypenny in Casino Royale (1967). Born Barbara Goutscher in 1943 in Reichenberg (which was then part of Germany but has since seceded to the Czech Republic) her family emigrated to San Francisco, California. She entered modeling and show business as a teenager and eventually moved to Hollywood to expand into a film career. Since the seventies, she has been living in Rome, Italy, where she has become a celebrity by starring in B-Movies.

Star Trek: TOS Women 16 & 17

No, you are not seeing double and no you are not drunk. After all, I did title it as TOS Women 16 & 17! Yes, it’s two women for this entry and it’s special because they are twin sisters.

Episode 12 of Season 2 I, Mudd sees an android named Norman, disguised as a starfleet officer, making his way onto the USS Enterprise after having forged his records and arranging the transfer. The powerful android is too much for the human officers and he jams the controls after changing their heading – the destination is a  planet which has never been charted. Once there Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Uhura & Chekov are forced to beam down to the planet where they meet the ruler of that planet – Harry Mudd! Mudd is surrounded by androids, who for the most part are a slew of beauties – 500 in the Alice class alone. He implies that these androids can provide for him anything he wants. Mudd goes on to explain his presence on the planet and tells them that he had been sent to prison by Kirk and company after his last appearance. After his escape, he had been employing himself by illegally reselling patents. He was caught and sentenced to death on Deneb V; fortunately for him he was able to steal a ship and get away. After drifting aimlessly for a while, he found himself on his planet. The problem is, of course, that he has gotten bored, and the androids won’t let him go. Kirk and his crewmates are there because he told the androids to go and get a starship, so the crew could stay and he could leave. He declares that Kirk must stay for the rest of his life on the planet, now also named Mudd, along with the rest of his crew in order for him to go free.

The androids then reveal their plan: to “serve” Humans until they will become completely dependent upon the androids. They refuse to let Harry leave and intend to keep the entire crew there as well. In a hilarious scheme, the Enterprise crew realize that they must use insane logic to get the better of the android and confuse them. The more confused an android get, unable to comprehend the insane logic, they will eventually short circuit and shutdown letting the humans a chance to leave the planet. Elsewhere, Spock tries to nerve pinch another Alice, but it has no effect. He then causes two other Alice androids to freeze up by telling one he loves her, but the other he hates her. The androids can’t deal with this, as they are identical – it is illogical to love one and not the other . Finally all  the android and Normal, the leader, is shutdown and reprogrammed from the main system so  that the crew are allowed to leave. However Mudd is paroled on the planet – he will be safe as the androids will provide for his every need but Kirk & crew reset the android that resembles Harry’s wife and create many more of her which will harass and annoy him for th duration of his stay on the planet.

The Alice series was a group of five hundred identical androids who inhabited the planet Mudd. They were designed according to Harry Mudd’s “exacting” specifications, and was the primary liaison between the vast android population and the crew of the USS Enterprise. Playing the parts of the pretty Alice series of androids are twin sister Alyce & Rhae Andrece. Alyce is the first pic and Rhae the second. Show Creator/Producer Gene Roddenberry had been in a panic because he needed at least two female identical twins and couldn’t find any. That night, while driving home, he saw the Andrece twins walking down a street. Roddenberry literally pulled over beside them, jumped out of his car and told them that they were going to be on television. Alyce & Rhae had brief careers as actresses; their only other apperances were in an episode each of BonanzaBatman, and in the 1970 film Hell’s Bloody Devils. The sisters also performed as singers in a band called The Third Eye in an episode of The Name of the Game. They were also singers in a jazz-pop group of the late 1960s called The Sound of Feeling.

Both sisters have passed away. Alyce died in 2005 aged 68 and Rhaw died in 2009 aged 72.
