"Yes, Barbara?" her dad replied.

|[2006-11-27] Tying me up is getting me down|
|In the last couple of years, I really discovered that I enjoy the bondage and discipline scene. To my surprise, I like being the slave with my boyfriend. Now, for us, we're not into anything too heavy; the discipline or endurance training doesn't break skin for example. We primarily enjoy the power roles of Master and slave. For example, I feel great comfort and security kneeling in front of my boyfriend and talking, or if we're watching television, I'll sit on the floor wearing a collar while my boyfriend is on the couch. To add to the role playing, I'll be the one getting him a drink or munc [...] |

|[2006-11-27] What is so frightening about marriage?|
|It was a great shock to me when my friend Andres (of all people!) got married at 29. That a dedicated "ladies man" would take a step like that and at such "tender" age, left me feeling confused and even a little frightened. It led me though to recover part of my faith in men, couples and marriage (of course, when he divorced six months later, my faith levels went back to normal in a heartbeat). I did not get the "marriage bug" until I was 26 and very much in love. In fact, even today, I have no clue about weddings; I believe I have never even glanced at a brides' magazine. If it wasn't for the [...] |

|Scientists discovered that every fifth male has "female brains." The owner of such brains does not necessarily look like a gay man. Vice versa, he can be a rather brutal-looking macho. A man with women's brains will differ from other men for his passion for women's occupations.

The argument finishes the dispute immediately, and the female opponent will not be able to win it, no matter what she will try to say in her own defense. It was generally believed that the male way of thinking was much more rational: women co [...] |
