    I was thinking it would be interesting to see where people think LPSG may be in five years. Most of us watched it evolve from a joke to a semi-serious board to and actual support board. Now I think it has become a board not only for support with a large cock, but with all of life's little problems and challenges. I have seen numerous threads started looking for general help with relationships. It has also become a fairly active political board. I was looking at the meet and greet section today, and I recall that membership recently hit (40 000?) I know that most people do not post, or post 10 messages and then wander off into the wilderness, but I wonder if it will maintain it's character where most of us know at least a little about most of the other members.

    We have had people become loved and drop out of site, trolls arrive and depart almost as quickly after a few recipes (something I have not seen in awhile), people actually die, and people pretend to die. We have had members get bored and leave, some return and others do not. I think every member who has been here awhile has at one time or another thought about quitting for various reasons. Through it all the board is still here, so I pose the question: What will LPSG look like in 5 years? Will there be any conservatives left? Will it be a hook up site after being sold? Will DMW be back?

    Perhaps, most importantly, do you honestly think you will still be here?

    Many of the members of LPSG in 5 years are 13 years old now and, just as they have the wonders of fantastic e-changes before them, so does LPSG.

    Hopefully, though, however much LPSG changes with the evolution of the internet, it will keep its core personality and humanity.

    As long as it doesn't become the exact opposite of what it is now, the answer is "yes".

    Honestly,

    I am surprised I have been here this long. I have mixed feelings about my time here and how it has influenced me. There is so much about the essential me that I stifle here. This is not an atmosphere that is condusive to having beliefs or thoughts that go against the tide. I have found myself trying out new parts of my personality during my time here. For example, "Kimiquisha's Wedding" was so totally opposite of who I really am or the way in which I conduct myself in real life. It was fun to some extent.
    I think we are already seeing the challenges of growing pains that come with publicity.....

    I'll be wherever I am Never have really given it too much consideration. The internet is huge and there are lots of forums some of which I have stayed at for a few years now and others which I signed onto and never even made one post and in many cases never returned to. Get back to me on this in about 5 years, okay?

    If LPSG maintains the bulk of its current personnel and the diverse offerings of sexual banter, serious debate, lighthearted fun, support for its intended purpose, and a forum for those looking for something that can't be found interfacing with people in reality, it will be prospering in five years. Though there are fewer conservatives than liberals or moderates at this site, their presence is crucial because they stimulate debate. Most important, IMO, however, is the personalities that are active here, those men and wmen who post on every conceivable subject and whose posts reveal their personalities to the extent we feel a sense of community. That's what separates it from the run-of-the-mill hookup sites at which people are disembodied genitalia.

    Hmmmm , Interesting queery you bring before us.

    Speaking AS one who was on LPSG (another ID) 5 yrs ago I have to say I am thrilled with the direction it has taken and I believe it will continue to become more genuine as well as the members. Hopefully in 5 yrs the dreamers will not be such an issue.

    Just say NO to DMW, as I kept telling anyone who would listen before all the BS lol

    I am sure I will still be here and maybe even bigger, who knows:cool:

    This is an interesting question.

    Sometimes, I look at Pecker, and Zora, and others who have been here for a while, and I wonder if I would stay THAT long.

    There is nothing wrong with them staying, I mean they are adults... they have careers and have had their lives.

    As a young guy, with an attention spand of a 12 year old... I assume that I will lose interest in talking about dicks and positions once I get settled down, and get married etc.

    I would like to suggest that a 5 year reunion be put in place, and all members in 5 years return for one day... just to Shoot the shit, talk about their dicks, and catch up with old friends.:biggrin1:

    Oh, inductive logic implies that eventually nearly all the regulars will leave,with great accompanying fanfare. And then they'll leave again. And then again ... and again ...

    You know, I kinda hope that in five, maybe ten years time, the place will have reverted back a to its core charter.

    I know that when I arrived (maybe about five years ago, from memory) the LPSG concentrated on the mechanical side of large genitalia, and the emotional consequences. I came here searching for a bicycle seat that wouldn't mash my large scrotum. (Mixed success on that score, alas.)

    Funny thing happened. Once you confess something as personal as your dick size, all kinds of other boundaries fall. Men on this site became, well, intimate friends. And began to talk about the stuff intimate friends talk about.

    I suspect the women on this board don't appreciate how rare that is for men. By the time two women become firm friends, they've shared their secrets--their physical quirks, their romantic dreams. Hell, women have such an ease communicating in intimate situations they even talk to each other in the ladies room!

    You know what? The men here have discovered that true intimacy makes you feel safe, loved, respected, well. I sense it from many of you; I'm sure Lex won't mind if I cite him as a man who has taken great comfort in sharing with us, and it's helped him to a greater peace of mind.

    Your internet pals will never take the place of your significant other and a handful of true loved ones. But the web is a form of genuine human contact, that in its own way, reaffirms one's own humanity. We can talk about all kinds of human frail.ties and strengths.

    Funny, but this sort of converstaion rarely happens elsewhere, either in real life or on the net. Even in places set up for that purpose.

    Take our old friends, the pearly penile papules. We get questions about this once every few months. Check 'em out on WebMD and you'll get nothing but alarmist tripe about how they're related to HPV, can cause lesions, and a host of other stuff. Not a place to find a guy asking another guy, hey, is this normal? And the other guy saying, yeah, chill.

    Mixing gays and straights? Lots of men have trouble coming out--I was one of them. I sought help, and frankly, much of that help focussed on a few select items of the gay agenda and seemed pretty daunting.

    It would have helped to have a place like the LPSG where I could have spoken to men across the full spectrum of sexualities. Knowing what goes on in a straight man's mind and heart actually helps a gay man know how he's different, how he's the same, and how much of what he feels has nothing to do with where he prefers to warm his willy.

    Sexually and emotionally, I have a lot in common with a heterosexual guy. Knowing that helps me feel better about being gay. You straight men around here probably helped more gays come out of the closet than you realise.

    I think we men feel better when we talk about personal stuff in an oblique way; many a man doesn't feel right going to a website dedicated to an emotional or sexual issue, but will relax when he discovers that a few other men in general company face the same thing.

    There simply isn't another place on the web where this happens. I wish there were. I wish there were lots of places where men felt safe, emotionally.

    Then the regulars can get back to the real subject at hand. Or mouth. Or...oh, never mind.
