Yes, that's exactly the book I was alluding to.

It's interesting that it was written from basically a Christian perspective, but it's been embraced almost universally, including by the sex-positive, polyamory and even kink communities. There's something in there for everyone.

What is "sex-positive"? Someone who likes sex? Isn't that almost everyone?

All-encompassing term for those who are nonjudgmental about reduced-strings or no-strings sex.

That sounds like a whitewashed way of saying someone is promiscuous :)

It's really just about getting the shame out of sex, in a number of ways. Also works well as an umbrella term for a large number of distinct groups that don't necessarily agree on everything: the polyamorous, non-monogamists, swingers, queers, sex-workers, porn stars, Ren Faire attendees, kinksters, nudists... ;)


Promiscuity is part of it, but not the sum of it.

Well, in the US we still have all sorts of taboos associated with sex because we are a society that was founded by puritans. It damages a lot of things even in healthy monogamous relationships. And of course it makes the counterculture even weirder.

Taboos and hangups can make monogamy a more difficult proposition to sustain.

I know this is not a message you expect to find in this room, but since my horses are the closest thing I have to human contact these days, I think it would be fun to share here.

I suppose you are all aware of what positive reinforcements are. When you are training a dog, you try the dog to do what you want him to do, and when he gets it right, you give him a reward. The reward may be anything the dog likes: a cookie, a pat in he head, some kind words... you get the idea.


Well, yesterday my favourite mare walked up to me begging for pats. I started scratching her all over. I discovered than when I got close to scratching a certain spot, she would start gently grooming my back with her mouth... if I moved from that spot and started scratching her elsewhere, she would stop caressing me.

And then it hit me. She was teaching ME how to best pet her by rewarding me when I got it right.

i was wondering where your horse story was going to end up. :)

Yes, i think this is the case with all pets. Its a mutual 'adjustment'.

 

I dont have any good horse stories, unfortunately ( other than driving one into a tree.. and getting a foot stepped on. )

Oh, snap! I hope that crashing into the tree was not too bad.

Also, sorry for your foot. I wear armored boots just because of the possibility of having my feet flattened.

Nah, just felt stupid, no damage to either of us other than pride.

(short version, i had been driving boats all summer. went to visit uncle up north and they had horses. Walking around the farm a bit, i Instinctively i turned 'early' to get around a tree.  of course horse turned THEN.   walked right into it and we were in the branches..  i'm sure he was thinking "dumb-ass human, ill show him" )

Foot, for some reason i curled my toes just as he stepped, didnt even see it happen .. tried to move my foot, no dice as the front of my shew was under his hoof.  i got lucky.

a lot of animals, including cats, will communicate this to you if you know how to listen.

I know, but this time it was kind of different.

Dogs are very good at making you understand what they want, but they don't give you an instant reward when you oblige... This mare was deliberatedly rewarding me for "good behavior" and withdrawing the reward when I stopped getting it right.

I love this big girl so much :)

By the way, how popular are medium and heavy draft horses in the US? If I moved with mines to the US I suspect we would become popular because the breeds and types I have here are rarely seen out of my country at all.

In the US we have mostly quarter horses. Other types are not unheard of (especially in professional racing circles) but the vast majority are quarter horses.

I have noticed that, in horse breeding games, American players tend to breed massive ammounts of Quarter Horses.

I have also heard they are noty really using them in pro-racing at all because lighter horses are just faster.

I had the hope there was a niche group of heavy horses diehard fans. Heavy horses offer soo much fur to hug. So awesome. I think I am gonna hug my horses for a while now.

The question is basically if medium or heavy draft horses are any popular or if there are groups and clubs insterested in them. Like the people who breeds Poiteau donkeys for fun.
