    Any sign of an RSS feed?

    • Hermes

      Seconded. I came here looking to add the RSS even if it is currently empty. That way, when it is ready it will come up in my feed reader automatically and I don’t have to write down a special note to track down the RSS feed later.
      Another recommendation;
      * Please make an audio-only RSS feed.
      I find it handy to cue up a batch of podcasts and listen to them throughout the day. A video podcast is something I’m not going to diddle with. If video is necessary on occasion, then either include it in the audio-only podcast as a special extra or (better) put in a stub that points to the special video.

    I’ll listen later but wanted to say that I’m hoping to feed a RUSS. I suppose it’d help to have fezzik along for that, however.

    Not meaning to be crude but was YouTube’s policies really the only thing stopping you from podcasting topless? I couldn’t tell if that was a joke or not. When the description said tubcast, I was actually more expecting the high water level and ample level of obscuring bubbles.

    • christinastephens

      Yes. I would have gone ahead and podcasted topless if it weren’t for Youtube’s policies.

    I’m now live blogging the G+ video on the link above (ok not really but I’m not at the end and wanted to share right away).
    That link is Dan Dennett at the ABC (Australian) doing “you might be an atheist”.

    Also, carbon dioxide is fun to play with but you do need to watch ventilation. It can displace the oxygen in the room or diminish your lungs ability to get rid of CO2 from the blood.

    My advise on getting over sexual guilt is to not focus on the whatever and start being naked (non-sexually) more often. Take a moment or two while you’re naked (and not showering or equivalent usual naked activity) and think about how it feels. Next time to feel guilty about sex, remind yourself how it felt to be naked and OK.
    You may also want to consider why you have a guilty feeling. Feeling guilty because you have body shame or ‘good person doesn’t X’ issue probably means you should get over being guilty.
    Feeling guilty that you don’t want to do X but your partner is demanding X is a different kettle of fish*. In the later case, I suggest writing (in full sentences by hand!) out what your need want and would like to have sexually (acts and frequency). Have your partner do the same. Exchange lists and prepare to be surprised. You may want to discuss how strongly various items are in the various piles and if they can move now or never. You may also discover that you’re not all that compatible sexually and now that you know it, agree to not get pushed on the red line items. You may also find you need to reconsider who you’re sleeping with.

    *I should probably confirm rule 34 on this but I’m not sure I want to know. Similarly, I’m glad this wasn’t a follow up episode of tubgirl.
