Old Polls

They never die, do old polls. They stay valid for ages and ages. But sometimes the interest in them wanes. When the interest wanes they wil arrive here, in the "Old Polls Home".

So here they are, in reverse order, oldest first.

No. I used it as an excuse to my mother when she asked what the stains were
No. I've alwasy been bewildered by the concept
Half. I am fucking the bedding when I wake up
Half. My hand is wanking me when I wake up
Yes. Awesome dream and I wake with an orgasm
Yes. The pity is I never remember the dream

Age I was with my Youngest Partner
This is a simple survey Each of the panels refers to the age group you were when you had a physical sexual relationship with your youngest partner. Obviously you should only answer one of the panels.

Because you are wise(!) you will realise that your youngest partner could have been older than you at the time. If this survey is a success I will run a similar one "in reverse" next time to find out what age you were with your oldest partner. And conceivably again to look at the age difference between you and your most "distant in years" partner. There is no purpose to this poll. No hidden agenda, no major statistical work will follow. It's for interest only, yours and mine. The voting system means that each pannel should only receive a single vote from a single person. I know it is technically possible to get round the security, but why woudl you bother? plesse do treat it as one perosn one vote. I do not and can not collect any data except your vote.

Is it anything to do with being gay or bi or str8? Male or female? No, it isn't. It is just as it says. All visitors male and female, gay, bi and str8 can answer

Being a Gay Male and Having/Not Having Anal Sex is not Necessarily Related (Multiple Choice Poll)

A previous poll showed that many visitors here do not have (or do not wish to have) anal sex. I am trying to examine the views. The poll is limited in its answers, but I'm trying! Please tick as many answers as you need in order to reflect your thoughts. The poll allows you to express a positive preference for anal sex as well. This is for balance. It is also perfectly possible and valid to tick a negative box in addition to stating that you enjoy anal sex.

I am happy to have anal sex
I find it physically impossible to open up to being penetrated
I find it emotionally impossible to open up to being penetrated
I feel the anus is dirty
I feel the anus is a social (or other) taboo
I have religious grounds against anal sex
I was assaulted and damaged physically. I might want to but I just can't
I was assaulted and damaged emotionally. I might want to but I just can't
I was assaulted. The experience means I do not want to have anal sex
I've thought about it, but I don't want to do it enough
Anal Sex makes me think of 'masculine and feminine'. I do not think of me nor of my partner that way
I feel there is a greater chance of STI/STD transmission with anal sex
While I may have anal sex with a committed partner, I will not until that time with others
Prostate stimulation with fingers or toys is fine, but I do not use a penis there
I do not use fingers or toys inside the anus
I limit anal stimuation to the external area
Anal Sex is enormously emotionally satisfying for me and my partner.
I consider anal sex as 'using and being used'
I simply don't want to even consider it
I am scared of it
The idea of having Anal Sex makes me feel 'gay'. If I avoid it I may still think of myself as 'not gay'
I cannot even caress my own anus, let alone caress another's or have another caress mine
The idea of penetrating my partner's anus or his penetrating mine turns me off
I don't really know what the prostate is, nor why I woudl enjoy it's stimulation
I don't really know where the prostate is, nor how to stimulate it
I want to. I just don't know how

Very close relationships, same gender couples

I am looking at a relationship so close that, if it were heterosexual, your legislature and/or religion would class it as incest. Another poll has dealt with the definition of incest: 60% feel the heterosexual definition applies to same gender pairings. Now I am looking at the acceptability. Here is the question: *In a same gender pairing do you, personally, find such a closely related sexual pairing is acceptable?* When you answer please ignore anything to do with age. This is not about ages, just closeness of kin.

Please tick all boxes that apply, There is no box to say that none of these are acceptable. Please register that answer in a prior poll

Sexual Drive and Desire

We're looking at all levels of drive, from allegedly addicted to wholly asexual. This type of poll is imperfect, so please attempt to fit yourself into the nearest answer. We do not mean masturbation. We mean sex, and with a live human partner. This is about desire, not about the actual sexual act itself. You may have a high sex drive and sex may not be available, for example.

I am addicted to sex. I need it at least daily, whether I get it daily or not
I have a high sex drive. Ideally I want sex daily
I have a high sex drive, but am content with every other day or thereabouts
I have a medium sex drive. I would like sex more than once a week
I have a medium sex drive. Once a week is lovely, but I am content with less
I have a low sex drive. Every couple of weeks is fine, but I am unconcerned if it is less often
I have a low sex drive. Monthly or so is fine by me, less often is ok, too
I have a low sex drive. I can take sex or leave it. The frequency is unimportant to me
I have a low sex drive. I do like sex, but am happy with it every so often. It is not important in my life
I am asexual, but I am tactile. I like touching and to be touched, hugged and snuggled. Sex itself does not interest me
I am asexual. I am not tactile. Sex does not interest me
I am asexual. I actively dislike sex and am happiest when not in a position where I feel I may be asked to be sexual
I am asexual. I do not dislike sex, but I simply do not want to have it
Whatever my sex drive I have chosen celibacy

If you could, would you?

He is slim, perfect, sparkling eyes, cheeky grin, the cutest ears you ever saw. He's not related to you. He's gay. He's below the age of consent, though old enough to know his own mind and his own body - this is an offer he understands the consequences of. He's not a rent boy, and he has just invited you to share his body. This is a one time offer, not a relationship. Do you:

Accept his offer without a second thought
Accept his offer, but feel guilty, either during or afterwards
Decline politely with no regrets
Decline, but ask if he'll model for you
Decline and wish with all your heart that you had said yes
Ignore him. Answering at all would be too embarrassing
Look for hidden cameras.

Notes in stories from Editors. Not Authors. EDITORS.

When an author makes an Author's Note in a story I see this as valid. Often they wish to explain something that cannot be explained in the text. There is a current trend for some editors to append notes. What do you think of that? Tick all that apply.

If the note adds value to the story I am happy
I think they are part of the tale
I hate them and want them gone
I have no idea what they are for. An editor is a silent partner, surely?

I laugh at them and despise them
I tune them out
Get rid of them
Why does the author allow them?
Why does the webmaster allow them?
They annoy me so much I give the story up

How You Would Like Us to Post Stories

There seems, broadly, to be a choice of two methods of posting stories on the site.
One method is to have a simple rota, posting stories and chapters of serials in simple rotation, adding new ones to the mix as soon as possible after receipt. This gives a large number of simultaneous stories but delays the finishing of serials.
The other is to concentrate on finishing a serial before starting on a new one or adding a new short story. This delays starting a new story but gives greater continuity to an existing one.
We're trying to find out which you prefer as reader and as writer. If you are both, please answer as whichever you feel more important.

I'm a writer. I like to see serials finished before moving to the next story
I'm a writer. I like to see a wide range of stories running simultaneously

Sorting order for the list of Authors

There is no perfect way. So far, except for the occasional error, the list of authors is intended to be in alpha order of surname, (if the name is two or more words) but not where the final word is not a surname (eg Angel Love, which seems to be a name in its own right), and in order of the single name, or the first part of the words where they do not appear to be a surname/forename combination. Complex or what? The question is, what order do you want?

The current order suits me fine
Sort in alpha order of the forename (eg Michael Arram to be sorted under M not under A), then the surname if any
Treat the final element of a name as if it were a surname, (eg put Angel Love under L)

Just One of Those Days, but It Got Better

N Fourbois and I have been discussing the best way to publish his stories when they are the length of substantial novels, as this one is.

He contends that publishing the entire tale on a single day is preferable for his audience; I contend that releasing the tale in parts in sequential runs is preferable.

You are the audience, and your views on this are interesting. Now is the time for you to tell us.

On 11 March 2015 we published this story, all on a single day. It has been split in to six parts to ensure that those who read on (eg) smartphones have ease of loading. This survey will give us more insight into your needs as readers.

This survey closes on 18 March 2015 at midnight UTC

Which orgasm type are you?

When I watch porn where a guy is having a serious wank I have noticed two types of action at orgasm and ejaculation time. One is the guy whose muscles tense, whose butt squeezes, whose hand turns into a blur and really seems to work hard at it. That's type 1 in the question below. The other is the guy who just strokes casually and passes through orgasm and ejaculation with an outflow of semen that doesn't seem to affect him, almost as if he is having a conversation with you while having an orgasm. That's type 2.

Type 1
Type 2
Mostly type 1, sometimes 2
Mostly type 2, sometimes 1
Both, equally
Either, at my choice
