Except for the print-only exclusive material. (Interestingly, I can't find the article Cyrillic alluded to, on either site. One of us must be misreading.)

It's here.

Exclusive to the audience, I see. :laugh: You're the only one who could check if it's translated from one of the international editions or original to the Dutch edition.

Look people, it is a rule of the Internet - If it exists, porn of it exists.  If you can't find it, you are not looking.  Now, back to my search for robot tentacle sex with chickens during fasts . . .
I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.

Couldn't find it on the English site, sadly. But there's this gem. Five Ways to Seduce Her with Your Mouth. It isn't as exciting as the title would have you believe, but it's still quackery.

If you want thought provoking articles about sex, subscribe to Men's Health. (Men's Fitness will do as well, at a pinch.)  :angel:

Their website prominently features an article on how to seduce a woman within a matter of seconds. The only thought that provoced was "Wow! They're a bunch of quacks!"

And that is why people bother to buy magazines rather than make do with what is found for free on the 'net. :laugh:

I think we need an expert to weigh in on this.  Where is JamesR?

Expert on the health or the fitness part? :laugh:
On the porn part. I'm sure he has extensive knowledge on the merits of paid vs free porn.  :D
God bless!

Now you're just enabling, C! :laugh:


The first two examples encourages girls to be gold diggers.

That's probably not what the Bible teaches.

More like encouraging them to stick with someone who knows how to manage their money and won't sink the family into debt over fripperies.

I don't know, Arachne.  While I agree with your generous interpretation, I suspect the target audience would take it the way Cyrillic did (at least based on that segment of the target audience among whom I live).  None of them would likely know what a frippery was, and the best guess might be "one of those fancy-az Starbucks drinks".

Eh. I wouldn't consider myself particularly generous in that respect. As for fripperies, the definition of dishearteningly many of the ladies I hang out with would be something along the lines of 'a 12-pack of beer, after he has been late paying the rent and some of the food budget has to go cover the late fee'.

Well, I've always been more of a Maxim and GQ man myself ever since I saw Lindsey Lohan on the cover circa 2006-2007  :angel: But yeah buying any written thing is kind of stupid when you can find virtually anything and everything you want for free on the internet.

Was that back when she was still hot? I shudder to think of what she must look like now. I would google it, but then I might barf.
