This is definitely one of those cases of more variation within groups than between groups. As you say, personal preference is a huge factor. I've known some women who were attracted to other women in a mostly emotional and intellectual way, while others were like that cartoon wolf whistling and banging his hands on the table. I imagine there's some overlap; why wouldn't there be?

 

Not sure how similar my own preferences are to some of you guys', but I'd imagine there's some overlap there as well.

That's not uncommon from my experience.

Also not uncommon. The "scene" has a fairly well-developed set of archetypes and roles. They're fairly diverse tho, and in my experience people tend to be at least somewhat fluid in their attraction and preferences.

Woe is mine!

I was ordered by my tutor to do all the assignments in Dutch. I have never written mathematical texts in Dutch before, so this feels horrible. I'm struggling with the terminology in particular.

You do not want thick text books like that in paperback. Trust me.

I've mentioned it before but I think that the between/within groups distinction is a little misleading.  It needs to be broken up by prevalence of specific attributes in each group.  I don't mean to criticize you or expect you to have that kind of data off the top of your head though.  I just think that a large enough sample to cut through the noise of individual preference might reveal some interesting, but subtle, differences.  Given the current genetic and developmental hypothesises for sexual orientation I think it would make sense if there was a great deal of overlap but not a complete overlap of preferences.

 

Also, is that last part an invitation to start an image dump?  wink_face.gif

 


 

On a completely different topic, Good Old Games is having an awesome sale on some D&D themed CRPGs.  No DRM and no region restrictions.

Never really liked Oasis (Cool Britannia anyone?), but I think this is a brilliant song:






Now, this was a great band and though short-lived, they were in a different league. Love these two tracks:

The discussion of attraction reminds me of a saying I heard a long time ago, that when translated into English went something like:

For every trashcan, there is a lid.

Even in procrastination, one can procrastinate even more. That's what I'm doing. >_>
