    Has this forum become the gathering place for narcissism and exhibitionism? Why is it that every thread says "New Pics, look at me". Is this some desperate cry for attention, meant to pad your ego, or is it just a glorified collection of picture threads?

    Has my generation really come to this? We can't communicate about problems, have simple discourse, or even casual discussion? Why is it that a good 95% of people in here have nothing to add except "look at my new pics!!!1one"?

    Every time I mosey my way on in here expecting to be able to possibly discuss issues with my peers, I leave here incredibly disappointed.

    Am I the only one who sees it this way?

    "Has my generation really come to this?"

    Your contemporaries are posting videos of themselves having sex on YouTube, displaying their semi-naked bodies and genitalia on RateMyBody/Cock/Ass/LPSG, etc., masturbating on webcams with strangers, 'hooking up,' even publishing magazines at Harvard (or is it Yale?) containing explicit pictures of their colleagues.

    Yes, your generation has really come to this--and it comes over and over and over again. Joking aside, such depersonalization, dehumanization, lack of personal dignity, and self-loathing is a very sad and truly frightening thing.

    Wait. You are blaming them?

    Might want to look at who's raised these 'kids' first.

    That's a big judgemental scott, especially from one who's also on this site. There has always been a desire to show off one's naked body but this has been kept in check by fear of the ramifications, now for the first time in history we can show off anonymously and what's wrong with that? I'm 48 and a lot of the people who display themselves are a similar age to me, people are sexual, if you find the indulgence of that sexuality so distasteful perhaps you'd be better off on a religious site.

    I think that Spoiled Princess is right. People like to show off but we are scared that we will be judged badly.

    Lion, I think the problem is the fact that people, regardless of age, seek approval(there are older gentlemen and women here who do the same thing) We all want to be told that we are the biggest, thickest dick ever seen. Actually, I shouldn't say we ALL want that, but we do all want to have approval from others.

    Anyways, my point is, everyone seeks approval. It's possible that people stick the threads in here because it was decided by a few that this thread was going to be the thread that is full of pictures. Perhaps a Bring and Brag thread?? You know, one that allows people to post their pictures in the thread and ask for the compliments.

    If I am being quite honest, I can understand why people want the attention which is why they post the threads... I just think that posting the photos in the gallery is enough.

    Personally, it isn't just a "your generation" thing Lion... everyone wants the approval and some are just better at waiting for someone to praise them.:smile:

    "if you find the indulgence of that sexuality so distasteful perhaps you'd be better off on a religious site.'

    What a predictably lame and pointless rebuttal. What does religion have to do with anything? Among many other things, humanity has to do with self-repect and valuing oneself and others as more than a set of secreting glands. OF COURSE, there have been fears of the ramifications: it's the whole Freudian notion of repressed civilization and its discontents and every empire depends on it in order to survive and flourish. But as history has shown, when those checks and balances are removed and the Pandora's box of decadence is opened and indulged, it's only a matter of time before a culture, besieged from within and without as we are now, finds itself on the irreversible and slippery slope to catastrophe. The only difference with America is that it's a nation that went from innocence to decadence without ever truly achieving maturity.

    Danny, I think Lion's complaint is the fact that these kids don't want to have challenging/thought provking conversations.. all they want to do, is beg people to look at their dicks.

    i know what you're asking & why you're askin the question but u also have to remember that this is the information age, people want everything right away, they dont want to have to wait for things.

    for some of the people its comments on themselves -as the world is in the grip of celebrity culture & anyone can be a star (reality tv opened this up), so people want to know what others think of them because they want to feel some sort of celebrity at whatever level they can get it.

    Some people do this on myspace, promoting bands, movies, poetry etc, but with this site being a large penis support group & it seems some people are concerned about there own bodies or just want people to say things they want to hear. then they post pics on here, asking for answers to whatever question they think up

    Remember its not a site everyone goes on & it is based on areas surrounding sexuality in general so most of the topics started will be based on different aspects of this.

    If people want to & people can do in anonymity, then a lot of people will open themselves up easier & ask things or show things in here (the LPSG) they couldnt in any other none supportive site/place.

    as said earlier
    its the information age, people want things here & now so this is how some people go about it. I wouldnt say its a good or bad thing, you just have to understand that this IS what some people want is all.

    ps you like my pictures hehehe :)

    I think a lot of people are misunderstanding what I'm saying here. I have no problem with people posting their pictures here, I believe in free speech. What really concerns me, is the lack of any sort of organized discourse in this forum. All conversation in this forum is limited to, how big is my dick? Seeking approval, I understand. But it is a marked concern of mine where there is literally no place to discuss issues prevalent amongst the YOUTH of this site. That is where my problems lie. I have plenty of conversation with the older members of this site, but it is nearly impossible to have a conversation with some of the younger males on this board, even about simple topics. It just seems like there is no shortage of people my age willing to talk about themselves, but there are few and far between who would be willing to carry on a conversation in this forum.

    Maybe it's time to create a post your pictures forum?

    i think its lack of attention span amongst some of the younger members here, ive talked to loads in chat & they ask about comparisons then as soon as they find out theyre off again (only a few do this though).


    Maybe cause there's too much information to be taken in now, they just ask or want to know the most direct things linittany

    or maybe its just the lack of at.....

    I wonder if it would be helpful to have a sub-section to "Young and Hung" specifically for showing the goods and looking for critique. Leave the main Forum for its designated use (if I understand it correctly)! It seems to me that this would satisfy all demands....

    I'm not sure what it is to be honest. I don't see why it would be difficult to carry a normal conversation. It just seems like my generation has a distinct hint of narcissism, I see it played out each and every day in this forum.

    "Oh, I don't know, I think Oscar Wilde's version was better."

    Actually, I was paraphrasing George Clemenceau (though it's also been attributed to George Bernard Shaw):

    "America is the only nation in history which miraculously has gone directly from barbarism to degeneration without the usual interval of civilization."

    But regardless of who said it, truer words were never spoken.
