(First things first:) Welcome to the forums! Nice to see new faces around here.

I suppose I may exercise more after I procrastinate a bit, but I'm not one for running around town in the mornings. That said, i was thinking about doing beach sprints.

(BTW, word in my area is that "Hentai" means pervert, or is closer to that than Animated Porn. Always pissed me off when someone called something else Hentai. Pet Peeve. One of my friends said I was reading hentai {Had a Death Note book in my hand} and I explained it to him then called him a hentai when he peeked at a girl. Being knowledgeable is a nice perk.)

If you remove the emotional need to release, a substitute for arousal, then you end up with a flat red line on the bottom. If you only masturbated when you were already prairie-dogging then you'd probably not be affected as much, and even then the game kinda kills your arousal because of the emotions anyways. Sex releases chemicals similar to exercise, which make you happier and more aware, hence the tradition of the "Wisdom Wank." Some emotional chemicals limit arousal, etc.

Not a neurochemist, just an Intj.

(BTW, being a smug pedant over the word "hentai" is not 'being knowledgeable'. It's being a smug pedant. Pet peeve. Seriously, words change meaning by region. Unless you and the person you're "correcting" are both in Japan at the time, insisting it means "pervert" is just being a nuisance. Might as well go straighten out everyone outside of England using "fag" to mean anything other than "cigarette".) Also, I didn't know what "prairie dogging" meant so I googled it and what does really having to take a shit have to do with masturbation guilt? :?

And thank you for the welcome. :) On topic, I told me mum (I have no right or reason to use that accent) about KS and she just kinda shrugged with indifference. Like "Enjoy, but I don't really care for that stuff." Which is a decent reaction, all things considered. XD

I was kinda talking to Fumiga... but you're welcome too. We've talked already, so it'd be kinda awkward to re-welcome you.

I'm an awfully prudish person: Prairie dogging is a euphemism for having an erection.

(I also do correct people on the use of "Fag." Call me terrible, but it stops them from using the insult in my presence, which is nice. As someone who was bullied/hunted bullies for 2 years, I use things like that to stop it temporarily while I go through the teachers or parents or friends of the perp.)

Oh! I didn't know that, I always noticed people using the word "hentai" In order to reference anything in Japanese culture (images, animation and even manga) that contains explicit nudity.
I had no idea what the word actually means pervert.

The image actually explains a lot the difference between the two feelings, easier to understand, it's like I already knew about it in my subconscious but I've never thought much about.
Thank you for sharing your knowledge =)

You don't correct people because those people aren't incorrect in the first place. That just makes you the incorrect one. And a pedant, which would only annoy people into further bullying. And a jerk for enforcing your vocabulary preferences upon people. It's not terrible, exactly, but it's nothing to brag about. You're also not a hunter of anything because it's not even that dramatic. :P All of which is to say that pedanticism and melodrama is a pretty ridiculous way to handle people of any group. Bullying is a negative behavior. Combating it with more negative behaviors (pedanticism, the jerkishness and smugness inherent in pedanticism, and melodramatic group division [inherent in the hunter/hunted mindset there] are all negative things) is illogical at best.

And I think the euphemism you're thinking of is "boner". Prairie dogging is about really having to take a shit. :lol:

Hm... suppose it is. Not where I live though. And this is really a long conversation to have over a misused euphemism.
