    And yet the little green man icon says you are still here - I would go out myself but it is 1.30 in the freaking morning here! Go on - get out - Get, shoo, shoo...

    I know what you mean... I do not drink, use drugs, gamble or participate in most of the other recognized addictions. BUT... here I am, too... leaving ALL kinds of shit undone. What IS it about this site?!

    I know what part of it is: we can be pretty uninhibited here. It's not like I am the most inhibited person anyway, but here I indulge stuff I figure the people I know in "real time" wouldn't understand.

    Then there are the pictures. I don't like most of the dick shots, there really are only a few that I think are hot. But the body shots inspire me to work out harder, get my abs more defined, tweak the pecs, and pump the bis. The bulge shots provide some sense of how guys (myself included) look when we wear certain things or arrange ourselves certain ways... what looks natural and appealing versus what looks staged or desperate.

    **************************
    Okay, then there's also the porn... never looked at it much before, but recently I've stumbled over some posts with links and some of it IS rather instructional... and some of it is just a reminder of how damn good sex can be! I think I really will try to avoid looking at a lot of it though.

    And like several other folks have noted, my behavior has changed a little, too. I go commando, free ballin' a lot more than I used to... almost 100% of the time now due to LPSG. I find myself looking to see what other guys have bulge-wise more than I used to... and in the showers and locker room... not ogling, but doing the "perfectly natural" comparing thing.

    I also find myself thinking I just might meet someone with whom I share some interests... it could be a totally hot guy who likes giving blow jobs as much as I like getting them, or an intelligent and beautiful woman who can deal with that pesky 30% of me that is not straight. It might be someone who stimulates my mind or inspires my social consciousness...

    My most rewarding experiences here have been the times when thoughtful people have written on a wide variety of topics, non-sexual for the most part. Regardless of their gender or other endowments, those who've participated in discussions that stimulated thinking have done a lot to keep me coming back...

    Then again, there's the sex factor. In my day to day life (and I am late as I type this for an engagement where I just might be able to meet some interesting partners), everyone expects me to be having more sex than I actually am. It's not that the opportunities aren't there, but I choose not to take them... is it because it's less complicated to be here?

    I totally know what you mean! Over the last 8 months*, I have spent a lot of time on this site.

    But I don't consider any of it wasted. It is truly the best community site I've found, and it was one of the first places I ever found where I could completely be myself.

    Often, my inner thoughts are a little too...um...vulgar for your average co-worker or relative. :rolleyes:

    I love being here, participating in discussions, making friends, laughing my fucking ass off, and getting turned on. It is far more entertaining (and fulfilling) than television or most other Internet surfing, for me.

    Oh, and I met the Love of my Life here as well. :wink: :heart:

    Yeah...I guess it did look like I was still here. Truth is...after I started this thread I just got up -&- left. With high speed internet I don't worry 'bout signin' off anymore...I just leave it up. But I did hook up w/some friends -&- had some fun. Gonna hit the club a lil later. But yet, I walked N the house -&- came str8 over 2 LPSG. It's an addiction now...used 2 B my CrackBerry (BlackBerry to most)...now it's LPSG.

    I don't consider LPSG a waste of time at all, so I'm not too worried about the amount that I spend here.

    About a month or a bit more than a month ago, the site bombed out for the greater part of the day...then one really gets to see how addicted they are to the site. I felt as if I could rip out all of my hair and claw walls.

    On my part, the biggest addiction is the members - there are truly amazing people that grace this site with their presence, having the opportunity to be able to interact with them etc. is good, very good...too damn good!

    On Friday I realised that even though I spend more time behind my computer screen than out in the sunshine, there have still been pay offs. I work in an Ad Agency and having my thinking cap, creative thinking and creative writing constantly being put to use has had such a good impact on my life, that even one of my bosses made a comment about it on Friday.

    As several have said, time spent here is not necessarily wasted. I have tried out ideas, have shared opinions on and reactions to difficult issues, have read what is going on with others and shared my suggestions, and have had others respond to what is going on with me. Those aspects of time spent at LPSG are not a problem for me.

    What I do have a problem with is hanging around when not a lot is going on here in hopes something will... or preferring to express myself here over interacting with people on the ground in my life already, or who might be if I was just available for that to happen... or getting so caught up in "just one more post," or "just another look see" when I have projects and obligations languishing for lack of my attention... Those things are indications to me that I've succumbed to addictive behavior!
